Replying To Damothedub:  "Don't know in the Hurling there wasn't a back door Dublin beat Kilkenny under 17s in the Leinster final and that was them gone.
There was no back door in Connaught as far as I know either"
take it there isn't to be honest.

it is a silly system yes,but we all know thats the way it is at the start. after beating dublin in the first round,i predicted we would meet again in the final and i am glad we are playing them to be honest. bigger test to possibly beat them twice.

ahh lads what a game that was. A proper Meath Dublin game, ferocious hits, brilliant atmosphere. The game turned about 4 times. Dubs started on top, then we got a goal. Dublin closed out the 1st half better. We came out 2nd half and had a ferocious start to go 6 up. Then ye got 1-3 on the bounce to level it, then we closed it out. A bloody great game. Archer is a great prospect, our full back had a monster game on him but he still set up a goal. Beating Kildare and Dublin twice is as hard earned a Leinster as they come and will bring on both Meath and Dublin players hugely

Good and bad day , young 17s beaten by Meath , however Dublin minor hurlers did a job on Antrim and are into the all Ireland semi final well done , special mention for Sean Currie shooting the lights out again

Dublin under 17 hurlers into the ALL IRELAND FINAL to meet the winners of Cork v Galway , after the hiding Antrim took last Saturday from our minors they have opted to give our 17S a walkover in the semi final , bless them

Just got my complimentary tickets for Sunday , one of the proudest Dads in Ireland regardless of what happens.
Think it will be a very tight game v Cork we played them twice in challenge matches a draw and a one point defeat.
Chance for young Dubs to make history to become the inaugural Under 17 All Ireland Hurling champions.

Might go down to portlaise for this on Monday.

Was chatting to some of the lads post the Kildare game, they seem a confident bunch.
