Kilmacud look to have a right team here going over the last few years and amount of Dublin Minors. Will anyone be near them ? I know Minor is Minor and has unpredictability about it. Think Kilmacud win the Feile All Ireland?
They went under 16 unbeaten
Yeah they did - in Mayo I think? Lost the first game to Westport but recovered to win the whole thing. They have some excellent forwards, incl Joe Quigley who is an excellent prospect. Team to beat I’d say.
They definitely look the team to beat, hard to see who would come from the pack, Lucan, Thomas Davis, Raheny, Boden next maybe but all look to have question marks about them. Group stages might be interesting, the Kilmacud group looks tricky.
Id have Crokes a good bit ahead of the pack. All other teams are capeable of beating eachother on any giving day.
An amalgamation of Crumlin and Robert Emmetts
Whelan looking after Pats still ? He will have them in good shape, same guy looking after Thomas Davis who won the B last year, Lucan Manager is a good guy aswell. Kilmacud manager I think was a Dublin Minor selector or was involved. Could be an interesting Group Crokes , Pats, Davis, Clontarf. The other two groups on paper might be more straight forward, albeit the fact two 3rd place teams come out aswell makes it more interesting even tho I don’t like the system.
Don’t look past Raheny
Lost last year in the final to Crokes despite finishing 4th in division 2
Demolished Division 2 this year going unbeaten
Gave Thomas Davis a right hiding in the semi final stages last year who are looked at as the team closest to Kilmacud at the top
Going to be an interesting one
Yeah missed them, fair point absolutely.
They be miles off it . Massive difference in Div1 and 2
Definitely a big difference but they were wrongly put in division 2
I’m telling you they’ll be right up there! New management and they added another fine new player who was apart of the Dublin Minors this year, young lad from Parnells.
Extremely physical and tough team and so hard to break down as they have an unbelievable defensive unit with equally good forwards.
In my opinion the only team that’ll beat them will be Kilmacud and don’t be suprised if Raheny beat them!!
Time will tell . BB are good outfit so we no more after Sunday I suppose. 4 Dub minors they have and 3 got game time in championship
Raheny definitely look like very good runners for the campaign, But with saying that crokes beat them by a cricket score two years ago and obviously beat them in last years final.
I will give you the benefit of the doubt though as you said new management and steamrolled most teams in div 2 this year.
They Will be the two teams to look at in my opinion Raheny big and physical team and as with crokes a unbelievable team who have ran the show the last few years.
With saying that though you cant write off the likes of Lucan Great team Aswell cant see Thomas Davis and Pats of donabate doing great. Raheny and Crokes got them in a semi and a quarter and gave them bad beatings.
Definitely the game i’d be most interested in this coming Sunday.
Raheny have 2 niether getting any luck with game time. Definitely a few more should of been in and around that panel from Raheny based off what i seen last year in the championship
Not sure about that. Seemed to be a strong minor panel . Over 40 lads in it so seemsa fairly big pool of players as it was
100 percent agree. Just goes to show how far this Raheny team have come.
Id say every team in the competition were shocked to see the lowest ranked team in the championship in the the final last year, it’s really fascinating to see for me and if they can go one step further than last year it will be truly astonishing.
Kilmacud on the other hand are an unbelievably talented team and are rightly so the clear favourites.
Watching that final last year Kilmacud we’re just far superior everywhere and are a great side and very well drilled.
Lucan too really like them, they’ve got a fair bit of quality.
It’s Minor championship anything can happen i’m definitely looking forward to it
What position you play for Raheny
