Dublin Senior Hurling 2018 - The Pat Gilroy Era


#3021

Any word on Eamonn dillons fitness?


#3022

Carl Sammon


#3023

Carl Sammon didn’t start for the 21’s last year, he was a sub.
From my information he has generally been a sub for them this year but I accept that could change come championship time.


#3024

Did come on as a sub last year and from what I’ve heard will be hard to start this year as it’s a very good side but he has started more than being a sub but the lads on the senior team to come back it might be difficult


#3025

Barrog game tonight in senior B championship goes ahead I take it that means young Costello is gone from the panel if so good player but only a certain amount of spaces on the panel


#3026

Anyone have the starting 15 v limerick


#3027

All games should have gone ahead according to the official DCB rules but suppose they were only club games :wink:

In accordance with County bye-law 23.1 no team shall have to fulfil a championship fixture in the
same code in the 6 days prior to any inter-County championship fixture (10 days for All Ireland Senior
semi-final. 17 days for All Ireland Senior Final) involving a Dublin team where one or more of their
players are members of that Dublin team’s official Inter County Panel. (Exception; an adult match
may not be postponed due to the inclusion of a player on a County minor panel) In Adult / Minor
league competitions clubs shall play without their players who are on inter County duty. Exception:
Clubs shall be entitled to a postponement if one or more of its players are required on the same day on
the official panel by a Dublin Adult Inter County team for championship or National league for the
final two rounds of the league and any league play-off game.

Are there 2 players from Clontarf in the Dublin squad as i see the Inter Champ game v Cuala was called off last night.


#3029

I heard it was one player on the Senior hurling panel - Paddy Smith from Clontarf was not available, I think it is crazy when intermediate and junior matches are call off for one player who may or may not play with Dublin. The other 30-40 lads on both teams have been training and must wait another month to play the next round of championship and this game may be put off until September. I think all these games should be played and get on with it or just leave these County lads play.


#3030

They should just play. Far too much cotton wool around the whole thing. Lads want to play games. Fans want to watch games. Just play games damnit!


#3031

The only problem I have and it’s nothing to do with current management is they don’t allow lads play for there club 10 days before county championship but have a challenge game 7 days before county championship
I think they should train with the county and play the championship game for club
This has being going on for years


#3032

I think we’ve agreed on our first thing.
Having said that - there shouldn’t be a club game 10days before county anyway, and i mean that in the sense of a proper overall structured season!!


#3033

Don’t go making a habit of it


#3034

Carl sammon is nowhere good enough to be playing senior hurling for Dublin not even good enough to be playing 21s


#3035

Ok thankfully for him you were not Dublin under 21 manager last year or this
But I will pass on your well wishes to him


#3036

well said
I mean the county lads seem to pick up as many injuries in county training as they do in club matches


#3037

So u really stand by ur comment tat Carl sammon should have been givin a trail for the Dublin seniors this year


#3038

My point was there were lads at the trials that didn’t make the under 21s panel Carl made the panel but not the trials


#3039

Come on we both no it would be pointless him getting a trail he is nowhere near good enough


#3040

And I know he is good enough for Dublin 21s as for the senior team not at the moment but I can’t see into the future but I do know he does not play football this year so he can give his all to hurling and I like that
