Down V Louth

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Marvellous display from Louth yesterday in Newry; best since the 4 point win over Tipp in Thurles in March 2017. They showed composure, confidence, heart and no small amound of skill. Craven, Duffy, Durnin, Califf, Mulroy all had mighty games. Half-forward line still needs strenghening. Crucial that we defeat Westmeath and return to Division 2; it will be easier next year to stay there than to get out of Div. 3 with Cork, Tipperary, Down, Derry etc in that Division. The team this year has restored pride into Louth football ... and hope.

Half forward line was the key yesterday Jims Ciaran Conor made themselves available and managed the half back line perfectly I think the whole half back line was replaced but were going the right way.

A great win in Newry. Congrats to all involved. James Craven, Bevan and Anthony Williams were super. Tommy put in a good shift too. Roll on Westmeath. Could we have Newry as our "temporary " home, As Ollie said it's only down the road. You can see it from Cooley. Better than Navan or PP

What a win for Louth yesterday. Typical Louth. They nearly fecked it up yesterday. Down were poor but nearly came away with a draw which ironically would of got them promoted and Louth would of missed out. Pairc Esler is some set up. Bring on the Westmeath match. An Lu Abu.

The whole half-back line was not replaced; there was one change made, Maguire for Clutterbuck after 56 mins.

The whole Down half-back line was not replaced. Darren O Hagan stayed until the end and actually scored 1-1, their top scorer.

Good posts Ollie and Ped. Certainly pride and hope restored in Louth football. Who would have thought after the Longford match that we would be one home win away from promotion. Thought the backs were immense, Williams, Duffy, Craven or Donoghue could have won MOM. The midfielders won their battles and kicked hree great points. The forwards worked very hard and tracked and ran all day. One great thing about this campaign has been the improvement game on game. One point from play from the forwards does need improvement and the half forwards do need to score more on Saturday. However the composure and belief in each other was so obvious and uplifting for the supporters. Well done also to the most vocal supporters on the day, the Geraldine U10s who continue to bring good luck! Maith sibh Wayne is an foireann uilig.

Three months to read a post?? Reading must be difficult also!! I don't have an inferiority complex on these things. So all is good. Just take a book with you next time you go fishing.

Thanks to whoever brought this topic up again. It's great to relive (hope that spelling is ok) that Sunday evening in Pairc Esler from a few weeks ago and the excitement driving up Newry Hill on the way home. We were there for a cause that never dies even when the personalities involved change for whatever reason. The lads on the field are always our own as in 57 and 2010. It's good to be there in good times and bad.
Sad to see another of our great 57 warriors Jim Roe RIP has passed away. He was a clever footballer who had great success with St. Mary's and Louth. At dheis De go raibh a anam.

RIP Jim. Colm Corrigian interviewed him on his LMFM Documentary when Sam crossed the Boyne two years ago.
