I know of two anyway that aren’t from dublin and don’t live here either which is against the rules.
Even seen Nipper Mcnally on the sideline as well
Totally… seems to be an I dependent republic in fox cab.
Nippers young one transferred last year didn’t
She did indeed. Didnt know he was involved though.
It looks like the FoxCab “management team” is the same as the DCU “management team” that won the O’Connor Cup this year. Maureen King (former chair of Dublin LGFA) is also involved to “help players find a balance between their work, football and personal lives”. Keep an eye out for more DCU players putting on the FoxCab jersey in the coming seasons.
There are a large number of fixtures outstanding for adult div 1. I wonder what is the plan to play them off. Also how many teams are relegated and promoted from div1/div2. The outstanding fixtures will have to be played to decide who gets relegated. That’s a lot of fixtures to get through before start of new season. It’s very messy
Not sure what the plan is in terms of getting the games played off but the bottom team in division 1 should be relegated with the second from bottom playing a relegation/promotion play off with the team second in division 2.
I think all of these relegation/promotion play offs in the lower leagues have been played.
The madness continues.
Two or three months since any of these teams have played - it will be hard going to get a window to play these games, as Dublin management will be reluctant as ever to free up girls to train and play with NFL starting in Feb - also a lot of players likely to be tied up with College competition coming to a head.
Some clubs played all there games last year . So it’s really the clubs fault in question at this point .
6 Of the 8 games outstanding in Division 1 and 2, involve teams that represented Dublin in the Leinster and All-Ireland series so its hard to place blame on those clubs. I assume that would’ve been expected by the county board
Extra games is the price of success. A laid back attitude is the reason division 1 is in the current situation. Some clubs are too quick to call or move games .
Cannot just point finger at clubs.
County board threw the agreed fixture calendar out the window for league and championship following intervention by the county team - the revised calendar had three rounds of leagues matches in September which then obviously clashed with county AI semi / finals so the whole schedule collapsed.
Club Championship 2019.
Championship football returns across the County tonight across all the grades. Below are my predictions for round one Senior to Junior A.
Senior Group A.
St Brigids vs Na Fianna
St Sylvesters vs Foxrock Cabinteely
Senior Group B.
Ballyboden vs Thomas Davis
Kilmacud Crokes vs Fingallians
Inter Group A
Castleknock vs Clann Mhuire
Clanna Gael vs Cuala
Inter Group B
Skerries vs Parnells
St Maurs vs Lucan
Junior A Group A
Naomh Barrog vs Man O War
St Judes vs O Dwyers
Junior A Group B
Ballinteer vs TSS
Raheny vs Garda/WMG
Senior Group A.
St Brigids vs Na Fianna - Agree Na Fianna could struggle to keep Senior Championship status this year
St Sylvesters vs Foxrock Cabinteely - Any chance of a shock - FoxCab with a lot of injuries but have Syls lost players since last year?
Senior Group B.
Ballyboden vs Thomas Davis - Boden struggling in the last two years so agree
Kilmacud Crokes vs Fingallians - ? Fins won the league match last week
Potential for a shock with Syls if they have the squad and team they had vs Foxcab in 1/4 final last year but that’s the unknown I suppose. On form and experience you would have to give Foxcab the nod.
Fins and Crokes again quite close historically between the two I am siding with Crokes cause they might have learned a little more in defeat in the league last week…
Difficult to read anything into fins Crokes league game as there might have been a certain amount of holding back on both sides. It was a pity to have the two matches a week apart
Big wins for Foxcab and Kilmacud
Yea Syls must definitely have been missing players to only score 0-04. Foxcab will be hard beaten again. Crokes are probably best positioned in terms of quality to challenge them.
Thomas Davis and Ballyboden a lot closer than expected?
Likewise thought Brigids would have had more to spare against Na Fianna.
Yea Prob a bit tighter than expected between TD and Boden. You just never know at this time of year with what teams will tog out. Some clubs will be affected with girls doing state exams and not making themselves available.
