The Championship 2018 - 1 Like(s)
Just came on to say good luck to you Brendan enjoy it all while you can. Getting promoted to div.3 was massive for the county but I'm not sure if it would have happened without Brendan's ability's and help.
Carlow had two chances against Laois, both playing from div 4 but missed out narrowly at the end, even with Brendan on board.
Playing Louth is a much bigger ask than any game Carlow played in the league with or without Brendan, as far back as I can remember Louth were always a serious threat going into any championship game irrespective of league results, and they are still a div. 2 side in a kind of way.
However even without Brendan for the Louth game all is not doom and gloom, perhaps it's awake up call that's coming at the right time.
Where I get my glimmer of hope from is going back to our championship win over Louth in 2011, Louth were in my view de facto Leinster champions going into that game and we beat them by 3 or 4 points, now will someone tell me when was the last time Carlow beat de facto leinster champions, I understand things have changed for both counties since 2011.??
