You're right !! Don't know how I forgot about glennon. Would definitely have him in ahead of O'Sullivan

Replying To Claretandblue:  "Fola was one of Loman's best players throughout the championship. He single handedly destroyed Killucan and was immense in both semi final and final. Presumably he's on the county panel, definitely a contender for player of the championship."
I believe he was asked into the panel but turned it down.

Point taken 213. Nice to see mature debate.

Surely tyrellspass and Athlone have to be ahead of rosemount. And Caulry ahead of moate

Probably agree with most of that but position 3 to 9 could easily be interchanged without much fuss.

Agreed, although I'd say 3 to 8. Shamrocks are in trouble, have been for a long time now despite winning a title in 2018, Shandonagh have become a real thorn in their sides, very little between the 2 sides now. Shandonagh have had recent under age success and have players coming through, Shamrocks have neither, they could quite easily have been relegated this year, relied on the likes of Donal Donoghue and Kieran Gavin to scrape over the line in their relegation semi final. I think they'll be intermediate within 24 months.

Imagine having to rely on your own players to "scrape over the line" by 6 points! Kieran Gavin is 32 - he's hardly a geriatric, if that's what you're implying. I watched that relegation semi, as the two clubs involved very kindly streamed it for free. Gavin was superb, the best player on the pitch by a considerable distance. Paddy Dowdall is rightly lauded for his immense contribution to Lomans' successes. He's 6 years older. Doran Harte the same. It's club football in Westmeath we are talking about here. If a quality player is interested and stays clear of injury they can be effective up to their late 30's.

I know where you are coming from with shamrocks but underage success whilst very important isn't the be all and end all. If shamrocks can get 1 or 2 additions a year in the next couple years, they'll be fine. History counts and I'd be surprised if they go down in next few years.

Shamrocks played Shandonagh three times last year and won all three games.

I was suggesting that Shamrocks are still relying on the same 2-3 stalwarts, totally agree that Gavin is no geriatric and is still an excellent footballer who has given great service to club and county, but I tell ya he's no spring chicken either, nor is Donoghue. The score board might have said 6 points in the end, but if you're going to tell me that Shamrocks won convincingly that day then we were watching different matches, if Shandonagh had a Gavin or Donoghue that day then the result could have been very different, and if Shandonagh meet Shamrocks in the championship next year I think the result will be reversed. I don't see one single Shamrocks player mentioned in anyones team of the championship, they're in trouble and that's my point.

Agreed, Garrycastle have been virtually non-existent at under age in recent years, however they have got a couple of players every year to sustain themselves. James Dolan, Alex Gardiner, Justin Barret, 3 Monaghans, Eoin Mulvihil, Tom O'Halloran all probably played Division 2 or 3 at underage but have been key performers for garrycastle in recent years as they have transitioned from the old guard of Dessie, Shocko, Gaffey etc.
