Dublin Club Transfers

A grenade? Ill delete my posts so. Some drama queens in here as the man says.


#325

You’re casting aspersions on the club and then swanning off - no?


#326

Tiger came to Erins Isle to play a round of pitch and putt last week


#327

Was Vialli with him?


#328

No. O tooles wanted to keep their name and colours. Plus more importantly, they have two adult hurling teams.


#329

No he isn’t in the best of health


#330

100% agree on that point. Everything possible should be done to keep a team going. If it meant dropping down to perhaps div 4 or 5. Will do no good in a club not to have an adult hurling team.


#331

Apologies - I was being sarcastic so you definitely don’t agree with me. I trust @parnellshurler as the oracle on this.


#333

If you are young enough take an underage team and bring them through and you’ll eventually get to play with them…


#335

Yeah when you think of it Parnells has some cheek . They approached otooles last year I think . ‘Eh I know you are in the A championship and division 1 and have 2 adult hurling teams but why not amalgamate change your clubs name and jersey’


#337

I think o’tooles mite regret the decision not to do it they could be in a similar position in a couple of years.


#338

With Parnells having no hurling section now it probably works out better for them


#340

Fully agree.


#341

The clubs are 2km apart, hardly operating in a different world to one another. Neither is flush with Hurlers right now or a large population / catchment area as both are mature/ageing suburbs. It wasn’t that long ago that O’Toole’s were advertising on Social Media for Hurlers. Time will tell anyway.


#343

Otooles have 2 adult teams I think . Senior A . Why wud they throw there club away now ?

It’s only the final throw of the dice to keep whatever’s left off your club alive. They aren’t in that situation now


#344

Are you staying involved in Parnells urself with the underage hurling?


#345

No harm in exploring ideas and potential opportunities. The odd thing about mergers is that it’s usually the past traditions (name of club and colors of jersey etc) that get in the way of future opportunities (ie. Kids in both catchement area playing the game).


#347

FairPlay :+1:t2:


#348

Nothing to do with throwing a club away. All I am saying is they had a chance to pick up a lot of local players (Parnells Clubhouse is 2km away from their own) who I am sure would have happily worn the O’Toole’s colours. In November 2016 O’Toole’s were advertising on Social Media for Hurlers so I doubt a whole lot has changed since then.

Can you see the transfers been granted or all be declined.
