The boat race. I reckon if Oxford don't win it next year it'll be Cambridge

i wouldnt rate Armagh, Monaghon, Cavan or rosscommon any better than meath, all level and all could beat each other on a day. dont forget cavan were relegated to div 3 while armagh were promoted to div 1. i think relegation to div 3 will kill cavan that was disastrous. they could be a flash in the pan same with tipp gone now for another 20 years before they win a provincial title again,

Meath beat Kerry ,Donegal . Tyrone . Monaghan in a one off game , and you dont think there is a whole pile between them ?? yea right , your fooling no one , Jesus wept

More nonsense , Kerry are more than a match for Dublin

Replying To galwayford:  "Scottish premier league. Celtic only stopped 10 in a row this year."
But they were stopped.. no one is going to stop Dublins twelfth so it's definitely no where near as foregone as Leinster football. Especially as 2 teams have an almost equal chance of winning it next year so it's 50 50 at best.

Just like the Scottish Premiership. If Rangers don't win it...

Hang on a second my old friend. Meath have under Andy beat Armagh , Galway , has very competitive games with Kerry mayo and Donegal, drew with Tyrone over 70 mins , hammered cork in cork. , as for Cavan? They were relegated from division two and will play in division 3 this year. We certainly above them. That been said you are absolutely right about Dublin been another level altogether. And tbh. I don't know if anyone can beat them next year never mind this. I do think the only ones who have a chance are ur own Kerry. But even at that it's a slim chance. But if anyone will, Kerry will.

Replying To wicklowsupport:  "The Leinster hurling championship before Galway entered it in recent years. Kilkenny have won 71 titles to date followed by Dublin and Wexford respectively with 24 and 21. I suppose the main difference is that Galway, Dublin and Wexford have won titles recently since Kilkenny dominance has waned."
And no doubt other Leinster counties will win Leinster titles in the future too.

Replying To Cockney_Cat:  "While Kilkenny's overall dominance of the Leinster Hurling Championship is not in doubt, they have never dominated it like Dublin are doing now in football's equivalent. Dublin are going for their 11th title in a row this year; whereas the best Kilkenny have ever done is 7 in a row, and that was once (2005 to 2011)."
Kilkenny won it from 1998-2011 except when they got beat by Mick Jacob's last gasp goal in 2004.

Since 2001 Dublin have only won 1 AI Minor football final and reached 2 others. Since 2013 Kildare have reached 6 Leinster minor football finals to Dublins 3, winning 4 of them to Dublins 2. Can the negative Kildare poster explain what is happening/has happened to all those successful young lads? And at All Ireland level for a team to have won 7 successive senior all Ireland's after only winning 1 minor AI in 20 years and only reaching 2 other finals suggests that this is as I suspect a Golden generation team they have at the minute. Not an unstoppable juggernaut based on a conveyor belt of talent funded by Central Council from underage level as alot of posters on this would have us believe. And for any of the extremely knowledgeable Kerry posters on this, which there are genuinely many, how can you be so negative when you look at your own recent all Ireland minor record? This Dublin run will come to an end and then they might not win another for a few years or more. It's happened to other teams in the past, in hurling in the recent past as I dont see Kilkenny winning Liam again for a while after being the dominant team for over 15 years.

If your county keeps your very successful minors of recent years playing football I dont see Dublins dominance lasting much longer.

I remember in 2019, ourselves and Wexford scrapping it out in a 1st round clash in Leinster, and we managed to win by 5 points. Our prize was a 26 point drubbing by Dublin. Not only is the Leinster championship pointless but with a straight knockout format this year, you can't even gain qualifier placings. If the GAA are going to persist with this nonsense, at least put Dublin straight into the final like they used to do with Antrim hurlers in Ulster.

Typical Meath defeatism and negativity. No wonder the Dubs are so dominant. Get off your knees Meath man.

Cobh Ramblers will not win the Champions league for the next 100 years. Swansea will never win the premier league. Italy will never win the 6 nations.

100% Royaldunne, Meath could beat anyone of those teams that I mentioned in a 1 off game, now i will be accused of poor mouthing or yerrah yerrah but we were beat by Cork coming out of div 3 last November, Donegal were bate by a Cavan team dropping into division 3, there are a cohort of teams that on any given Saturday or Sunday can beat each other, teams like Kerry Tyrone Donegal and Mayo that people say can challenge dublin can have a bad day at the office and get caught and that has proved to be through ( Mayo kildare, Mayo Roscommon, Tyrone Kerry, Kerry Galway, Kerry Cork Cavan Donegal) but then you have dublin a mile out in front, they don't have bad days, a bad day for dublin is when they only beat you by 10 points instead of 20.
