Leinster Club Championship 2019

(Oldest Posts First)

Ferbane (Offaly)
St. Patrick's (Wicklow)
Portlaoise (Laois)
Eire Og (Carlow)
Castletown (Wexford)
Garrycastle (Westmeath)
Emmet Og (Longford)

Already in the competition with the Meath, Kildare, Louth and Dublin Champions to be announced.

Anyone have any predictions or know any thing about teams already through.

whoever wins Dublin will be the team to beat.
From my own county Garrycastle Won last weekend I think they have a good chance in the 1st round against Emmet Og but I don't see them going much further.

whilst Dublin will be favourites
I see Portlaoise and Eire of going well

Ratoath look like a strong side and maybe the team to beat Ballboden

I predict 4 away wins this weekend:

Eire Og (CW) v Sarfields (KE)
St Patricks (WW) v Portlaoise (LS)
Garrycastle (WH) v Ratoath (MH)
Newtown Blues (LH) v Ballyboden St Endas (D)

Ballyboden probably slight favourites overall but such is club championship that you wouldn't rule out an upset or two before the provincial final. Indeed in 2015 one of Ballyboden's toughest games on their way to the All Ireland was in Drogheda v then Louth champions St Pat's and it took a late Collie Basquel goal to seal the win for them. I believe Pat's had a late goal disallowed that day too if memory serves me right.

From what I have seen it looks wide open. Yes people will rightly make Ballybodan favourites but they are not invincible and really should have been out in Dublin at the quarter final stage. They got on top earlier than their previous 2 championship games last Sunday but I thought Thomas Davis poor shooting really let them down and it was a closer game than the scoreline suggested. However I don't have a firm opinion on the challengers having limited knowledge of their form and quality of opponent within their respective counties.
