Can You See Past Kiltale In The 2019 Championship?

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Fair play to kildalkey , easy winners on sunday , kiltale can have no complaints with the result.
You would wonder where it went wrong with kiltale this year , the trophy was being presented to them back in july ?

That said only for a disgrace of a soft free kiltale were getting the trophy the first day, but there will be no mention of that in the history books and thats all that matters.

Kildalkey should get big lift from this going forward as they have not beat kiltale in a game that matters since 2012 group game , for kiltale , already without forde and sullivan this year and with mcgann now gone it will be interesting to see where they go from now , will they regroup or is that the end for the best team i have seen play in this county.

Think kildalkey have great shout for a leinster final , on the handy side of the draw , you couldnt hand pick it better.

Very hard on a group of lads to have a title taken away by a poor referee decision. Was surprised Morris got final in the first place.
I wouldn't agree with the best team to play in this county, never got close to winning a Leinster in a stage where a lot of meath hurling teams were in transition. If this kiltale team can bounce back now and win 2/3 more I'll 100% agree.
Kildalkey a good young side, won't be leaving anything soon!

Who is a better team than they have been ? since start of 2000s the kildalkey 3 in a row team were only team to come close and they never won a match in leinster.
kiltale lost 2 very close finals in 14 and 15 to kilkenny teams and they should prob have won at least one of them.
16 semi to carrickshock ref done them no favours , and the locals in our county could not give information fast enough to them which is poor form and id hope kildalkey dont get that done to them this year.

Kilmessan only team to win Leinster in meath in 2008. Nowlan park against a strong Erin's own team. Very unlucky in all ireland semi with some poor refereeing decisions going against them.

Kildalkey had it done to them in 2012 by a prominent Meath man who also sourced a helmet for a prominent Kilkenny player. We all know who the Meath man is who done this.

Sorry, that was a typo; should have been 2010 and not 2012.

Good team but somehow never built on that and didnt win another championship so not sure how that would be called better but for sure a great season for kilmessan

A great team has consistency and longevity over more than 1 season

Build on what, the bulk of that Kilmessan team had won, I think 3 in a row 02 - 05 so the 08 success was built on those years AND they did win another championship 2013 when Kiltale went asleep against Longwood in the second half of the semifinal.

Yeah, proof came by the way of the Dansfort players and management telling Kildalkey after the game!!
And correct me if I'm wrong but the score was 18-10 that day with Richie Hogan getting 12pts. Hardly beat out the gate.

This page reminds me a bit of the Shawshank Redemption where all the prisoners claim they're innocent and they're only in jail because of bad lawyers.

Apparently Kilmessan only lost the 2009 AI SF thanks to poor refereeing, Kildalkey conceded 8 goals and lost by 14 points in 2010 only because someone gave the other team "info", Kiltale only lost the 2016 Leinster SF thanks to poor refereeing, and Kildalkey only drew the final this year thanks to poor refereeing.

Always cheated, never defeated!

Hurlit its sad to see you still have a obsession with kildalkey and its environs.i was at both co finals this year.the first day kildalkey owned the game for 55 mins and kiltale had apurple patch for five mins.so neither team deserved to lose.the second day kildalkey well on top and even your jaundiced eye should have been able to see that.seir keiran the better team today and tullaroan and themselves should contest final.paddy Connelly and sean heavey big losses for kildalkey .still would not have won but definitely closer.great credit should be given to pat o Halloran and co for retaining title after long spell.no team in meath would have been seir keiran today.hurlit try to be more positive .you are the most negative contributor tp this forum.
