About a week away from the Offaly game and looking forward to that one, briefly, I've been thinking, Offaly are going into this game as favourites, I don't mind that too much because man for man imo we are as good as they are, even on the bench we are as good.
The only problem I would have is we may lack the sucker punch needed to put the game away and the self believe, if we can handle that then we're looking at a leinster final spot.

I think last night's result put's it all in perspective, the winners of Carlow and Offaly have a mountain to climb, we need every available player for the Offaly game and hope for the best, should we get a good result then we'll worry about Dublin. By the way where will the leinter final be played.? Is it listed for Parnell Park.??

No venue set yet for the final. Hearing that common sense has prevailed and the Carlow v Offaly game will be moved to Thursday evening the 23rd instead of clashing with the Ireland/Italy game on wed.

All the best to the Carlow u/21 team tomorrow evening in NCP, man for man there's little between the two teams, so may the best team win.

Can't help but notice the fact we are only a few short hours away from a possible place in a leinster final and not a word of support here for the team or management, not even a passing comment, enough said.

Nice and quietly is sometimes no bad thing boys. For a change, there's perhaps no need to be reliant on best wishes or luck tonight. Should be a close contest but very winnable for Johnny & Co. We salute you in your efforts and hope that they reap their rewards later on.

I note that TG4 aren't showing it, which is handy for anybody that cant go. Strange or maybe not so strange, given the other Leinster semi was televised.

Best of luck tonight lads, won't be much in it. I feel we have a bit of fire power on the bench when needed. None the less lads, it should be a good game. Best of luck.

Well lads didn't make the game

Were the goals ultimately the difference between the teams or was their much between the teams other than all important goals?

I didn't see the 5 goals coming that's for sure, there was two reports on the game and they both differ a little, however Offaly deserved their win on the night, the best team won, good luck in the final.
