Dublin U17 Hurling 2018


#606

I doubt Dunne will be lost to football


#607

Just the scoreline WOW. Is Luke Swan the real deal then. Is he more likely to go down the hurling route?


#608

Not liking the heading!


#609

Well it does look like the same old same old unfortunately. I’ve no issue with a Ciaran Kilkenny playing football because he’s playing but when you look at lads who are/were wasting away on the bench for years it is very disappointing.

Still. Could be that one of the footballers may well throw his lot in with the hurlers next year :wink:


#610

Young and all as these guys maybe Swan looks a real outstanding prospect…outrageous ability in the air and powerful striker of a ball.
If you were to put money on a dual player returning who would it be?


#611

He’d be from the same club as the manager :wink:


#612

That would be wonderful if it happened.


#613

Dara Purcell is a serious prospect and not dual. Dunne is not making the football 15. Some of these guys might not make the football panel but look like they could have good futures as hurlers. Depends. Rushe and Danny were good footballers by all accounts.


#614

Well done today deserved win.I predicted after parnell park we will meet in all ireland final and we will(best out of 3 decider).


#615

Does Rushe still play football for St Pats Palmerstown?


#616

If it was anything like today it’d be an classic. Just hope we win our next game, not something we tend to do outside Leinster.


#617

Yes he does


#618

Kilkenny and dublin are better than cork or tipp dont know about galway.kk dub findl for me.


#619

He’s ohmnipresent, like yourself. Timezone neutral.


#620

Unless Con O Callaghan has transferred to Vinnies it wont make much difference.


#621

Delighted that I didn’t turn the car around and head home when the traffic was shite on the way down. In all the years I played or watched games I struggle to recall a game like this today. As I said earlier it is great to see a Dublin team take on the opposition defence and go for goal, when the point was the easier option. We could have had another 2-3 goals today.
Obviously we need to shore up the defence. 10 goals in two games is far from ideal and this could be ultimately what costs us an all ireland. But there is a forward line there capable of of out scoring anyone. Swan looks like a bigger version of Con.
Also great to see a great spread of clubs across the panel. Onwards and upwards


#622

Fair play, @sneakersotoole. I’m envious of you witnessing this, first hand.


#623

Fair play Sneakers.


#624

Are you a St Pats Palmerstown club man?


#625

Who is manager?
