That'd be something, the new Kilkenny manager (Fennelly), is not good enough for Offaly.

This is what you said. How could I have misread your post in the way you said when I picked Thomas Monaghan on my team? I never claimed Whelan didnt score in the championship - blatant lies. Tony Kelly scored 12 points from play in the championship against Limerick - I forgot the side line was a placed ball. 13 insteand of 12 is hardly outrageous!

You have a serious chip on your shoulder about Tipperary. I'm not too sure why Tipp would come into a discussion about All Stars this year only for your hatred of us. It was a well known fact that Ollie was Eoins most difficult opponent but he did score 1-1 from play off him in Croke Park. You're obviously mixing it up with Pearse Stadium years before. Serious levels of immaturuty in your post. I'd consider Tipps rivalry with Limerick far greater than with Galway, yet I selected 13 Limerick players on my team of 2021. You have managed to turn a post about team of the year into Galway v Tipperary! Well done!"
Don't give me that trope about Galway hating Tipperary, that's well past its sell by date. My reply to you had nothing to do with Tipp. It had everything to do with you and your bullying tactics. When you asked me in your derogatory and condescending tone how old I was what type of answer did you expect?
You call this form of interaction a 'discussion'. You're not interested in a discussion, your game is one-upmanship, outsmarting, correcting, telling me that I have shot myself in the foot, that I have " Serious levels of immaturuty " etc. People who wish to engage in a discussion don't use that type of language.
Slán leat anois!"
By the way, I never once suggested Galway hate Tipp."]You didn't have to. Everybody hates Tipp."]And wexford ."]We just aren't successful enough for anyone to hate us Bon!!!!"]Wexford supporters are possibly the only ones that I've ever met who don't hate Tipp. It's probably because Wexford doesn't border Tipp. All the counties that do border it are hurling counties. I couldn't say whether Antrim or Dublin like Tipp or not, but suspect that the Dubs wouldn't hate them as you've so many Tipp fellas living in Dublin and involved in clubs there.

Personally, I don't mind Tipp at all. I generally like the Tipp style of hurling, and Tipp players in almost all cases don't fall to the ground feigning injury when hit a belt."]Hate is a strong word to use about any GAA county. I have never been to a match where I said I hated any county. This isn't soccer.
Don't get me wrong I love beating Kilkenny, Galway and my adopted Wexford, but I don't hate any of them! In fact, I prefer seeing any of the 3 of them beat any Munster county.

In fairness he has improved Offaly. They just missed out on scoring average for the McDonagh. He can only play the hand given. Offaly will return to the top table. Especially if the minors can kick on at the next grade. Kilkenny now need the next TJ and I'll put my money on they''ll find him also.

Next season should be absolutely fascinating. Limerick have just won an improbable 3 in a row and will start as favourites but all teams bar cork will feel they played their best game against us and will feel they could have won those matches. There's a lack of consistency in quite a few teams but you'd feel there is a lot of ability and the playing field is fairly level. Ultimately it will come down to whatever team can find that consistently to challenge. The confidence in a team that has won 4/5 is huge

Limerick will hopefully have Casey and lynch back and hopefully the likes of o neill and another one or two from the u20 bunch to come through. Appetite will be the issue. There's a huge amount of punishment in being champions with a target on your back. Any team attempting a 4 in a row will have to accept the spotlight. Teams are analysing us to the hilt. Perhaps a few teams showed their cards too early in the league etc. Certainly kk playing so well v Clare took the surprise away for the final

I'm expecting a big kick from Tipperary in 2023.

Liam Cahill back home. I expect a clear out of sorts and a huge lift in work levels from Tipp. We got over Tipp with two late goals this season and they had us in trouble for large parts of the game. Given Cahill's work with Tipperary underage sides in the past and the experience he has gained from Managing Waterford in a Munster Final, all Ireland semi final and all Ireland final it bodes well for better days ahead in Tipp.

Other counties will have new management teams and there is the excitement and expectation that goes with this, but Tipp are the ones I think will see the biggest upsurge in performance.

True but they couldn't get any worse than last year

Now that the dust has settled on what I consider was a fine championship with fine champions, I'll leave you all, especially the posters from the two counties with the most prolific traffic on here on their respective county forums, a little equation/riddle:

L11= WX6 + G?

What does the '?' stand for? And what does the equation mean in plain English?

I don't think that it should be too difficult to figure out.

L11 - Limerick 11
WX6 - Wexford 6
G? = Galway 5.

6 +5 = 11.

5. Was only 6 years ago that it was L7 W6 and G4. K36 C20 T28? Who knows what it might be in 10 or 20 years time? What exactly is the point of your post ? There are 20 something counties you can suffix with a 0!

It demonstrates that he can count up to 11 anyway. He's a googler of dates and numbers, your typical hurler on the keyboard.

Croke Park couldn't even count C4 (Clare 4) in the All-Ireland final programme!

Correct Bruffgael. And in plain English it means that 'Limerick now has the same number of All Ireland senior hurling titles as the counties of Wexford and Galway put together'; a timely reminder to the poster on here who referred to Limerick as "a non-hurling county."

I think the people on here would need to stop smelling themselves about All-Irelands won. Without all the other counties who support the game including counties with none it would be hollow success.

Yes indeed and in the Citation for Mick Mackey, on the list of Millenium Team Players, the man who played such a huge part in popularising Hurling- there was about 30,000 at CK/KK in '31, five years later there was over 50,000 at LK/KK- he was credited with having captained the Jubilee All Ireland winners in the iconic year of '34- He did not- as any school boy in Limerick would know that Final was won under Timmy Ryan's splendid Captaincy . Mackey captained the Teams of '36 and 40 alright. OTM had to get it put right- the things one does for Limerick Heroes.
Just in case you are asking Baire I did not have to google anything to find out these things- I knew them in my heart long long before Google was even invented.

I have noticed the Himself and Katser are remarkably quite over the past few weeks. Some superbly opportunist Cat must have got their tongues.

"Superbly opportunist"? Hardly like. Sure some of the Galway posters on here snuggled up so closely and tightly to the cats in the weeks before the final, that it would be a pure doddle for any cat to take their tongues.

I'd never imagine you'd have to google for something like that OTM! I was only referring to one particular keyboard jabber. Sometimes the memory plays tricks on us though and we might confuse the siege of Limerick with the siege of Ennis! ;)

Agree, triumphalism at its worst. To be fair, I think all genuine hurling people in every county know how to celebrate their win and also empathise with the loser.
