There Was no shield mentioned when the group draws were released. There should be a shield but I don’t think they will have one… worked well last year. 10 games in total for the year isn’t enough.
I make the B out as
Isles V Barrog
BSJ v Castleknock
Clontarf v Brigids
Raheny v Crokes
John Power '84, Mick Bissett '85, Niall Guiden '86.
Was Mick Bissett not Parnells?
Mick played with Kilmore up until Minor.
I’ve been reliably informed Jim played for Kilmore for a few years before going to Parnells at about 13 years of age.
Were any minor fixtures sent out for the 28th?
Yes, all 11am throw in’s
’A’ semi finals
Ballyboden St Endas v St Vincents
Kilmacud Crokes v Cuala
Erins Isle v Naomh Barrog
Ballinteer St Johns v Castleknock
Clontarf v St Brigids
Raheny v Kilmacud Crokes
Skerries Harps v St Brigids
Cuala v Clanna Gael Fontenoy
Cu Chuaillainn v Fingallians
Faughs v Naomh Olaf
’D’ semi finals
Commercials v St Sylvesters
Lucan Sarsfields v Na Fianna
Nice to see they’ve gone back to home venues for group winners. It’s a no brainer.
Minor A semi finals identical to the senior semi final line up
Also Crokes in both A and B semi finals.
Crokes b’s strengthened with their U16s out of champ, few handy players including Purcell that played dublin minor this year.
Id expect Raheny to have a little bit too much for them.
You’d imagine a Dublin minor would get a game on an A team even if he is U16 still
I’d expect Raheny to win also, their racking up big scores. Ye I would of thought the same myself… but they have a lot to pick from. Olaf’s with three of dublin’s best minor hurlers just bet their third team by 1 point!!
Crokes B are in a quarter final, not a semi final.
That’s a joke . Rules should be put in place to stop that .
Dara Purcell plays for the A’s
relax, it’s not true
