Minor Championship

(Oldest Posts First)

How are we looking for a potential minor All Ireland this year?

Kilkenny looked very strong yesterday against Galway and should be massive favourites!! We have to get over Dublin next weekend though. I know very little about the Dublin minors. Are they any good? It would be great to win the Minor All Ireland. Players like Arthur and Davy O Hallorhan look to have huge potential!!

Dublin minors arent very strong compared to previous years have 2 or 3 stand out players but apart from those they are farily average looked very poor at the start of the yr and have been beaten easily by Kilkenny twice although Kilkenny looked a very strong side. Clare would be favorites but Dublin should put it up to them. Davy O'Halloran was very strong for Eire Og 21's and looks a very promising hurler and Niall Arthur is also one to watch but Anthony Daly wil have knowledge of these lads for the Dublin selectors so hopefully a good game in store .

Well done Clare minors. You certainly make life more difficult than it should be but a win is a win. Roll on the Cats

Well done and best of luck in the final. Clare were the better team over the hour but our fellas fought back well and might have taken it in the end. Big task to beat the Cats but sure you'd never know.

Well done to the Clare minors. Some very good hurlers in that team. I felt that Clare were the better team throughout the game, however some poor shooting from the Bannermen and a couple of soft goals let Dublin back in the game.

Hope Clare win the final and I think yous'll put it up to Kilkenny.

Paddy Power have Kilkenny at 1/12 and Clare at 13/2 !!

Very unlucky for Clare. Kilkenny got the goals that counted and for all our dominance we did not create any goal chance.
