What a great win.

There is such potential in the county with U21 wins
over Dublin and now Laois twice in the last few years.

Well done to all concerned.

Well done last night lads, fair play and credit where credit is due. Also great win for Westmeath too, it can only be good for hurling especially in Leinster!

I'm a harsh critic of your footballers at all ages, but definitely a "fan" (I tend to give a lot of praise) to your hurlers and justifiably so.

Hopefully the county board will cut back spending money on the footballers and pump more time and money into the hurlers, the footballers are a lost cause.

Wonderboy, I like the way you use our U21 hurlers victory over Laois to
have another go at our footballers.

Why the obsession ?

Wonderboy. Your obsession with putting down Carlow footballers at every opportunity is pathetic. It might be understandable if you came from a footballing stronghold such as Dublin or Kerry . The fact that you are from just over the Graiguecullen border in Laois makes it laughable to say the least. The difference between Carlow and Laois County football teams is as follows. We in Carlow accept and know that we are no great shakes. Ye on the other hand whilst not being much better than us seem to think that ye are a giant in footballing terms. When the Dubs beat ye by a cricket score you can tip back to graigue cullen from Nowlen park with your tail between your legs.

Under 21s deserve huge credit for a very good win v Laois. Beating them two years in a row is a nice bit of bragging rights. But these wins need perspective too. Last year the U21s went so close to beating Kilkenny. But was this a quality Kilkenny team? I'd see that as a big chance missed. As with this years team there are some hugely talented players. James Doyle in particular is flying at the minute, Ger Coady also had a right game and Michael Malone will only get better once his injuries clear up. Jack Kavanagh is in now and will be a big help.

Most if not all wins need perspective, was that a quality Kilkenny team of last year you might ask, on the other hand, was that a quality Kilkenny team that Westmeath beat, does that win need perspective.? Our thoughts are on the Offaly game, Offaly will be going into the game as favourites irrespective of what number of talented players Carlow have, for sure don't Offaly have their fair share of talented players but in fairness sure Laois were favourites in some peoples minds as well.
The Dublin/Wexford result put's a different slant on things.

Chris Nolan is ineligible as he has not turned 18 yet.

Replying To Passer_By:  "Was the severity of Coadys suspension contested at all? You'd get less for swinging an axe. Presumably that runs from the Wexford Walsh cup game meaning he's out until the championship, or could he be involved yet should we reach the 2a final or promotion relegation match?

Big well done to all today. It would have been nice had Derry taken points off London today but all in all we'd have taken this position a few weeks back. Puts a different twist on the next game v Westmeath. In an ideal world that game would have entailed an element of shadow boxing. You wouldn't want to be wholly reliant on Antrim wining in Ruislip though.

Hats off to KCLR again. Does anyone actually know who got the goal or generally scored up in Ballycastle today? Big well done again and let's keep it going herein."
I see on the HS home page where Offaly are appealing the red card issued to their captain Colin Egan, and Galway appealing the red card issued to Conor Cooney, nothing wrong with that, ?

Separately, did the Carlow county board ever appeal the rather severe 3 months suspension dished out to Richard Cody for a couple of utterings to the referee, nothing physical I might add.?????

Well did they.????

Top hurling job for Martin Fogarty
29 June 2016

The role will involve working towards the delivery of the Hurling 2020 Committee report findings, a review of county games programmes for club players, and devising other activities and initiatives with the aim of maximising participation across all levels of the game.
It will also include specific responsibility for the development of hurling in five counties (Westmeath, Carlow, Offaly, Laois and Antrim) and consideration of the restoration of a mentoring programme in designated counties.
Can only be good for Carlow hurling.

Well lads

interesting start to the 2016 SHC, brilliant win for ballinkillen over naomh eoin, they showed real guts. NE missing a few due to suspension from last year but b-killen also missing the services of david English and craig wall, hopefully they can continue that performance next weekend against MLR who'll be a big test after a very impressive performance against the champions st mullins.

A tight championship ahead!!
