Kieran Walsh ? From kilworth. Think he's 42 this year. He'd hardly be getting the call up at this stageIt's okay to consider Deccie Dalton as a goalkeeper option but he hasn't played there for 5 years and the real question that has to asked is does he want to play there himself. When Hoggy eventually goes Dalton should be the freetaker but Alan Connolly and Darragh Flynn are other serious options for the future.
I would not rule out Patrick Collins and believe him to be a good 'keeper, I believe him to be a victim of various managements obsessed with youth but forgetting that these guys hadn't won at underage and required some coaching. It's different going with young players who are good enough but have AI U-20 medals. It was the opposite with Martin Coleman taking over from Donal Og as he was too old starting off in the league final of 2012 and had been hanging around too long to get his chance. Cathal Hickey, Kieran Walsh and Gavin Connolly are all very good 'keepers and may give a 1-2 year commitment if approached by Pat Ryan and his selectors.
Maybe Nash should have stayed on! Current goalkeeper isn’t exactly breeding confidence, and Nash was by far the better goalkeeper. Sully wasn’t slow to criticize Gerald McCarthy’s training techniques in the past. What goes around comes around!I've heard nash on that podcast. Fairly accurate stuff. Seems sully can't handle any pundit telling the reality
Don't think they get on well anyway. The story was it was Sully who was the main pusher to get nash to "retire". Nash wanted to stay on but was told he wouldn't be on panel so was given the option to release the statement saying he was retiring.
Think nash also feels they are trying to push out Hoggie at moment in a similar manner so he's less than complimentary to the management
A remarkable number of that team still playing senior inter county hurling.You're right actually. First game
D Dalton (Fr O’Neills); S Smith (Midleton), D Griffin (Carrigaline), N O’Leary (Castlelyons); M Coleman (Blarney), E Murphy (Sarsfields), D Lowney (Clonakilty); C O’Leary (Valley Rovers), D Fitzgibbon (Charleville); T O’Mahony (Shandrum), R O’Flynn (Erins Own), S Kingston (Douglas); B Dunne (Fr O’Neills), C Cormack (Blackrock), M O’Halloran (Blackrock).
D Gunning (Na Piarsaigh) for O’Flynn (HT), J Looney (Aghada) for Dunne (44 mins),
I think injury has kept DD away from the team more than anything.Deccie Dalton is a physically strong forward that can catch a ball and has an unbelievable strike. He’d at least worth having around the panel.
I was at Avondhu - Duhallow last night and some of the saves he pulled off were miraculous! If Collins was between the sticks I'd say the net would have been rattled a few times!Kieran Walsh ? From kilworth. Think he's 42 this year. He'd hardly be getting the call up at this stage
he is a strong lad with average height and no pace who favours his left side but is a good accurate striker.Is Dalton that good ,on the team and liam is coming home.
