I read on the latest Wexford GAA proposal to switch back to U18 etc that if thats passed, they also have a motion that it wont come into force until 2024 which makes more sense in my opinion.

Should they win, could Fethard be the first Wexford club to have won a Leinster title in both codes? Can't think of any other candidates that may have done it. Some achievement.

Replying To Viking66:  "Firstly I was hoping Ferns and Oulart would win as did anyone I know from Wexford.
Secondly I thought Castletown did very well against a very good Portarlington team.
Thirdly running u19s when lads are back at school and college and the underage soccer season is in full flow is asking for these kind of problems.
Fourthly yes, yes and yes."
I think Portarlington were shown to be a good bit off the pace by the Crokes last night.

NO DISGRACE IN BEING A BIT OF THE PACE WITH THAT CROKES TEAM

Crokes are a superclub. On their day they can beat anybody. Portarlington would have needed to play their best game to beat them. And they didn't.

I'd say they are the first to even get to a football and hurling Leinster final?

I think so too - that they're first to even reach a final in both codes. Hopefully they'll go on to win it.

I am envolved with a u19 club and the level of abuse we received on the line was nothing sort of shocking from the opposition support while the ref was also on the receiving end. Don't think anyone has learned anything from the recent respect the referee forums.

The Meath lads will be tough opponents but Fethard are pretty much fully fit and have shown they can grind out close wins. Both sides have momentum too.

Well they were still missing Adam Swan (their most under-rated player) and Daire Barden vs Mullinavat, and only used one sub, so might have been a bit short from a panel point of view, but everyone fit and firing, they definitely could cause a stir. Winning tight games will certainly stand to them, and home advantage helps too.

I telegraphed it- was always a "papering over the cracks" exercise introduced to save face. In general, the players on the field aren't the ones guilty of abusing referees, it's those in the crowd. And for some reason it's something I have noticed post-covid (although that may just be coincidental), that there seems to be a lot more aggro and booing in crowds at GAA matches lately. Almost getting to professional soccer levels.

They are a model of what can be achieved by a small population club run properly. And while they have a very good 1st team as you say they aren't blessed with great depth on account of this. And to have had the recent success they have had with very few intercounty men says alot for them too.

From the county final Bryan Power is also injured for them as well as the 2 lads mentioned. Dylan Whelan is out injured too with an ACL. And Jimmy Sutton, Ruari Tubrid & Ciaran Dwyer who were all on the team last year are away. So would have much better depth with them if they were fit/around. The younger lads who came up through minor being a big addition to them. You'd still expect Dunshaughlin to win handy though.

Great to see Fethard and Adamstown going well though, best of luck to them both.

I think fethard would be the first to get to a final alright. Buffers alley rathnure and oulart all have won one in hurling in senior. Fethard in intermediate also. with cushinstown in football. Only time cushinstown played in hurling Leinster championship was in 06 and were bet by a Westmeath crowd after extra time after a replay. I don't think alley rathnure or oulart played in Leinster football championships

So try nothing then? It was OK before, or?

Great to get an all county affair in the club finals, Meath vs Wexford.

From a Meath perspective, I'd say both teams would be favourites, Dunshaughlin would be heavy favourties - I think Paddy Power might have them priced at something like 1/10. They're a senior club playing Intermediate, and they breezed though the Meath Intermediate championship this year. I'd be disappointed if they didn't make a good run at the All Ireland

Junior will probably be a bit tighter, both sides were impressive in their Q/F wins and both edged over the line in their semi final. I have no idea what the Wexford JFC is like, but the Meath JFC is a bit stronger that it has been in recent years, with 6 teams coming down from Intermediate over the last 2 years (3 each year relegated)

So it's not easy to win and Castletown went unbeaten to beat a good Dunsany team cosily enough in the final. I'd be confident they've a favourties chance anyway but Adamstown will be a tough challenge, especially on home soil.

Best of luck to all involved.

Fethard are definitely a senior club playing intermediate also in 2022. Got caught by the double relegation in Wexford last year.
They will need to play well v Dunshaughlin to win though. Fethard by winning intermediate are the 13th ranked team in Wexford.
Adamstown would be the 25th ranked team an intermediate team who been playing junior (intermediate A) for a couple of years.
Looking forward to both matches home advantage will help the Wexford teams
