2023 Premier SHC

That only club people do you not get it the vast majorty of the country dont care about club games.Soccer and Rubgy is what people care about now and come february again Gaa will get the spotlight again but in the long term young people will leave our games in droves over the spilt season and lack of big game exposure while rugby and soccer are all over our tvs from August to End of January with no Gaa on Tv to get exposure to our young people.This old adage of Club spirit and all this nonese from Years ago is well gone.This is a different Ireland Now and people wont just play Gaa because their parents did you need the big games and stars on national tv to get their attention.
It would be my opinion that the old style of drinking bans, training all year, games every few months sporadically and no set calendar did far more harm to the young people wanting to play than the current structure.
The idea that a fella knows that he starts training in feb has everyone second week off during the league to go out and have his pints with June almost a free month for holidays and then back home for business then for 4-6 weeks before championship is way more attractive to the modern young lad than that old regimental style

Spot on. The previous regime was unsustainable. No problem if following the county is your thing but without the grassroots the GAA is dead within a generation. 99% of fellas involved at club level are in favour of the split season.

DEAR FUCKING GOD. What 10 year old watches a Rugby, Hurling or Soccer match. This is absolute horseshit . Kids just want to play. If you had a fucking clue go to a Blitz around Cork this weekend and you will get the answer.
 
So the rest should just close up their gates and forget about hurting because they can’t beat Imokilly Maybe they should all join the super club from the Barony 🤣
Well 30 years ago senior hurling was all city teams. And then the smaller east cork teams developed there underage teams and now the majority of the best hurlers come from east cork. Something u find hard to comprehend. Seadun could be there too competing if they put any bit of effort into hurling. That’s a stupid question you asked. “How many teams could beat imokilly?”. You could say the same for sars and midleton. Or any of the stronger teams over years such as the bars team last year. They strolled through every game except the first. There’s strong teams and not so strong teams every year, just happened imokilly r strong this year. But the imokilly side any even that strong they had 2 walk overs and look better than they are. “How many teams could beat midleton?” Still teams show up and try to win when they play midleton. Blackrock beat the stripes last year and the glen year before. And all the castlemartyr boys are playing the day before with their club. So I guarantee sars v imokilly will be a tight game. I fancy sars to win. But you think you be more accepting of players from smaller clubs playing a higher grade of hurling as so many cork players had played for the stripes e.g. Seamus h, Niall ol, deccie dalton, get mellerick, pebbles, bill cooper, joycey and etc.
 
It’s up to the other teams to get better with all of there facilities they have. My local club have terrible facilities but still mange to produce four players to play for cork in the last 8 years. Hurling is the number one sport in east cork because of st Colmans and midleton cbs promoting the game so much. In the other areas of cork they have other sports to compete with. People from east cork live and breathe hurling

Pity Colmans turned down the redevelopment offer from Fermoy.
 
My fondest memories of hurling is going watching Colmans play Harty games. I presume it’s the same if u went to cbs too. More schools need allow students to watch their schools play and get a few flares and chants going. Will hugely promote hurling in These areas
