Dublin U17 Hurling 2018


#142

Would be nice to see Col Eoin go back into Leinster A. Was the basis for a large bunch of players from that school to make the grade at senior county level in recent years.


#143

THey do when they feel they’re strong enough


#144

Nice article about DCU and the colleges


#145

Leinster senior hurling B final half time score.

Colaiste Eoin 2-5
Colaiste Choilm Tullamore 1-7


#146

Lost 2-12 to 2-08


#147

Hard luck to Eoin. Getting to see the final is still good going.


#148

Kilkenny CBS beat Middleton in colleges I see, so two KK teams in semis and Dublin Nth beat both of them. A good sign…


#149

Kk will be favourites for minor all ireland and will take some stopping


#150

#151

Good sign for Dublin after Dublin Nth beating them in Leinster.


#152

Is that Kieran’s I see lifting the all Ireland. Wonder would the dub north team have won it out.


#153

yes. Dublin north would’ve won if allowed to play


#154

You’d think so. Shame they weren’t allowed progress. I mean Kieran’s really need another all Ireland.


#155

It’s a schools competition. Can’t blame schools for not wanting group teams. It’s not like too many wanted UCD in the county championship or the universities in general in the pre season cups.


#156

Agreed. We are a combined team and should be happy to be competing to Leinster level.

Would we beat a combined Kilkenny schools team?


#157

Agree to a point. Kieran’s aren’t just a regular school though are they?


#158

But it is …


#159

Yes they are. In the sense that they’re a single school entity under the same rules as other schools.


#160

heh heh … i know it is … but … you know, they hoover up hurlers from all over the shop, fair play to them etc, but they’re not just another school … not really (even though they are technically).


#161

not saying Dublin Norh/South should be allowed progress to AI (I don’t think they should) but … the Mullens for example are Ballyhale, 15-20 miles south of Kilkenny and with a grand secondary school of their own …:wink:
