Adult Hurling League 5 (AHL5) 2018

Plunketts 2-09 Lucan 0-15. Good game draw probably fair result both teams had chances to win it at the end but same as yourself superhurler ref ruined what could of been an outstanding game. Some of the calls he made were outrageous particularly one for a penalty awarded to Lucan where our full back had one had in the air trying to catch the ball and his other on his hurl down by his side but ref somehow aid our full back had wrapped his arms around the FF and fouled him :confused: He was bad for both sides but would have to wonder to ones self are these lads ever assessed?? cause this ref in particular isn’t the first time I’ve seen him ref and give a shocking display.

Realt Dearg beat Crumlin in an undeserved victory, they didn’t deserve to draw or lose either, game was that brutal and slow.

Have to be honest on a personal level, results aside, the enjoyment factor has dropped to zero and I’d say that’s my lot for the year, best of luck lads and lassie’s.

Ref blowing the whistle too much again for you?

BSJ 1-20 Counsel 1-15

I heard Cuala v Plunkets finished level

Plunketts 1-15 vs Cuala 1-15

Great game played in great spirits some hard hitting from both sides. Plunketts Line had themselves one up at the end but ref said it was a draw which was prob a fair result.

Just so I follow your logic here, RD won in an undeserved victory, despite winning by 9 points, even allowing for 2 soft Crumlin goals. But they also didnt deserve to draw the game nor lose it either.
If you dont deserve to win, lose or draw a game, should the GAA now resort to handing out participation medals before games and instead of actually making it a competition, everyone sit in the center of the pitch and braid each others hair ?

Your post is very patronizing, I was at the game and RD won this at a cantor and stopped hurling for the last 15 mins. Fair enough if you are not enjoying hurling and didnt enjoy the match, but those whatever the opposite of rose tinted glasses you are viewing this match through, shouldnt detract from a 1-20 to 2-8 comfortable RD win.

RD up to 5th, with 2 games in hand so could still be there in the shakeout of this league later in the year hopefully.


Just the usual superhurler post we’ve come to expect unfortunately

Plunketts 1-15 Na Fianna 1-14

BSJ 1-25 Lucan 0-4

Realt must be sick of that Cuala team. They’ve lost to them several times now over the past few years in Champo semis, finals, important league games.

Skerries Harps 1-15 Cuala 1-11

1 game to go for most.

If Ballinteer win final game at home to Whitehall they should win it outright.

Playoffs almost sealed with Lucan or Realt Dearg looking like the only ones that could upset current 4 in Playoff positions.

Playoff’s are no longer 2nd v 5th & 3rd v 4th, it’s now top team promoted with 2nd v 3rd playing off for 2nd promotion spot

  1. Adult Hurling Leagues shall have promotion and relegation. In AHL 1 the top two teams shall play in a league final. In AHL 2 and all leagues below the top team shall be declared the league winner and shall be promoted. The 2nd and 3rd placed teams shall play-off with the winner also promoted. The bottom team in each league shall be relegated. The 2nd and 3rd last teams in each league shall play-off with the loser also relegated. Relegation does not apply to the lowest league.

So could be a straight shoot out between Plunketts and Harps for 3rd with Council possibly sneaking in too!?

In the event of Skerries beating Plunketts and being tied on the same points, is the playoff spot decided on points difference or head to head?

Funny how the teams in the hunt going into the final games in AHL2 are also involved in the winning/ playoffs of this division too

If it’s only 2 teams it’s head to head
