They must laugh and be delighted when they are drawn against Cork county champions, in the Munster hurling club competition. Our club competitions are low standard, and destroyed by referees who blow up at the slightest infringement!Agreed. Was talking to two colleagues from Tipp and Limerick about this a few weeks back. They said they’ve always been amazed at the club set ups down here.
Oh f8ck off, you made a bullshit comment about grounds around the county being neglected and got called on it.Shows in the performance of the players. Bunch of primary donnas who wilt at the first sign of serious intensity. Unfortunately, all Ireland medals are not given out for quality of playing surfaces! We’ll be looking at games in an empty stadium for the next generation..
100% spot onSetting Frank aside, I don't think this comment is true.
Look at the facilities at Mallow, Clonakilty, Na Piarsaigh, Vincents etc, even junior clubs with small memberships have 2 or 3 pitches and Astros now as well.
It's not all about senior inter countyDon’t know why my post was misconstrued about grounds development. My call was on players quality. 18 years without a hurling all Ireland. Our football team is aiming for Tailteann Cup. Astro turf is not going to fix this, whether it’s in Castletownroche or Ballydehob! GAA in Cork is in crisis!
Yeah yeah. We have the most clubs in the country too, and a huge playing population. We have precipitously fallen from heights in the 1970’s, 1980’s to our present status! Why? Maybe too much emphasis on grounds development and not enough on players coaching and competition!It's not all about senior inter county
Gaa is flying at club level , playing numbers are higher than ever
