Dublin Intermediate Hurling Championship (IHC) 2018


#144

Any news of venues yet.


#145

Marks and Cuala at home


#146

Really wide open now, on paper you’d have to fancy Scoil but there’s just no counting out Marks now after there win against Syl’s.

Cuala and Clontarf will be a tight one IMO, i’d give a slight edge to Cuala


#147

Is it not neutral venues ?


#148

Hasn’t been in recent years


#149

So I believe but think it’s changed this year for the semi finals all neutral venues but I could be wrong.


#150

O’Toole Park is the Venue


#151

Two very interesting matches on Saturday. Can’t see there being too much between the teams in both matches.

I just hope that the second game is not ruined by the referee who has that habit


#152

Agree completely. Very inconsistent which is the frustrating thing!


#153

He is a hero in our club.He awarded boden a free in the last second of injury time in the senior B final a couple of years ago,our keeper saved, free taker scored the rebound but he had said the free was the last puck of the game So the goal didn’t stand, not often you get them breaks so he is a hero .


#154

Generally speaking how many weeks between the semi final and the final?


#155

Normally 2


#156

Ht marks 0-8 scoil 0-6. Marks look the more composed side , had the wind in the first half. Dotsy mid but hanging around the half back line. Marks with dotsy, Sean McCann and John Kelly old wise heads might just win it


#157

Last min marks deflected goal from a 21 free. Scoil probably should of been out of sight in the second half . Extra time.


#158

Scoil 1-18 marks 0- 21 draw after extra time.


#159

Good man on d’updates, @Southdublin. Cheers.


#160

Clontarf pipped by Cuala. A late placed ball for them hit the post, came down and was deflected into the net. Dreadful for us. Cruel way to lose. Good luck to Cuala in the final.


#161

Sounded like two great games today. Cuala winning their last two games by a point is the sign of a fight till the death team.

I would be delighted to see Marks win this out. They have come back from nowhere and are an inspiration to any club either on the up or going through a rough patch


#162

Had some great battles with marks at senior over the years. Dotsy, Kelly and the Rabbites were all exceptional hurlers for them. Not sure if the rabbittes are still around?*

  • I fear the pun police may be called soon

#163

I think the rabbites were playing, one defo was anyways. Marks are a very dogged team very hard to break down, they have done a very good to rebuild that team. Dotsy was quiet enough looked like he was carrying a knock, John Kelly was excellent for them. They will need a few more younger lads to take over the mantle though to progress over the next few years.
