have scoil a team equipped for senior b? They usually have a lot of dual players , might be a step too far unless they have a few young lads coming through
I was surprised that they didn’t go further last year in intermediate… logically speaking if you are not good enough to get to the final of the inter how could you be equipped for senior?
Are Plunkets not senior A as they were in the final of the senior B last year
If you look at the original list posted at the start of this thread there is no mention of Plunketts
If they wers beaten semi finalists last year how are they senior A this year?
They were beaten in the final by Faughs
sorry id totally forgotten that I had it in my head crokes beat them in the semi
you were right then they have no hope of winning the senior b!!!
Just to clarify Plunketts and Faughs went up to Senior A, Raheny and Crumlin came down
based on the actual participants ill go Raheny. Not sure Crumlin will have enough after the transfers out
I’d go with Crokes. Thomas Davis Cuala and Rahney as my semi finalists
Ground hurler tipped them to win it I was just saying I thought they were promoted which they were that’s the reason Plunkets were mentioned
So were Scoil confirmed as Senior B on Monday night?
Looks like Scoil are in Senior B alright.
Surprised the likes of Towers, Syls, & Isles didn’t object to this…or maybe they did and lost out
Maybe they had more sense? You’re not a real senior hurler unless you’ve won the inter championship…
I know Isles didn’t object anyway. No point in going into something without earning it is my opinion.
Maybe teams thought they would be wasting their time after the Thomas Davis saga from last year. And I think @alanoc said before that the CCCCCCCCCC can put whatever team they want into whatever championship they want. Its their decision at the end of the day. Ill refer to the time that Isles won AHL2 back and Crumlin were runners up over 10 years ago and were told that neither team were getting promoted. Simple as that, what they say goes
Exactly, nothing wrong with some humility and cop-on either. I’d say Dotsy is guiding a lot of that way of thinking as they continue to get a good underage structure in place.
Marks made the right call, they lost the junior a final , then the intermediate final and have a serious dependence on a few veterans, not a good recipe for senior b. have a cut off lifting the intermediate cup seems the sensible call
I presume they would have had no choice but to go up had they have won Inter last year as none of the lads who played the final would have been able to play Inter this year
Wouldn’t be critical of Marks at all, they’re doing what’s right for themselves and fair play to them.
It’s how a replacement was selected that I’m wondering
