In Ireland at weekend - so will be there - I have no idea what to expect - my last game in DCP was the County Hurling Final and I thought MLR were a class outfit ( particularly in 1st half - So looking forward to a good game on Sunday

Best of luck to the lads tomorrow. It will be a tough game for Carlow to win but they have a great chance of winning it.A very young team with Shane and Eddie backboning the team with their leadership.

Good team picked, with seriously strong subs to come in if things are not going well. Mark Brennan and Craig Doyle are the 2 standouts from the subs list.
Eddie Coady at mf is an interesting choice, not sure if that'll work. But if it doesn't I hope Meyler will be faster to react that Rainbow is with the footballers if something is not working.
Best of luck to them, and a win is possible. This and the Antrim game are our 2 best chances of picking up points.

Eddie did all his club hurling this yr at midfield so i think he ll go grand. Probably an abundance of bks and hes too good to leave off. Hurler of the year after all!

Hard luck to the hurlers! Tight game! Keep it going!
There must be a different Co Board for the hurlers is there?

Hard luck to the hurlers.
Clear difference in mindset between the hurlers and footballers and I'd go as far to say btw the hurling clubs and football clubs.

A great opportunity missed.

To take some positives, it was a pleasure to watch S. Kavanagh and Brennan hurl together during the second half. Brought the fight right to Wexford.

Good battling performance...What is the clear difference? Why always the comparison between the two sets? I'm sure if we sat down and talked to both the hurlers and the footballers they would speak of the commitment they both give!

The loss of Marty Kavanagh to a straight red is going to have a large and ongoing impact on our league, particularly given that the fixture listing is confined to such a short period. By my reckoning he wont be back until the final game against Dublin, could be wrong but Antrim game falls on the 24th March. If he gets the minimum of a month will his suspension finish on the 23rd or 24th? We'd the wining of that game with him today, he was causing havoc. Shane Kavanagh needs to be the sole free taker herein. What did the linesman see to single him out? There was timber flying elsewhere in the same incident without any repercussions. Any grounds for an appeal through the kangaroo courts? Overall well done on the performance, we're far from done yet. I'm sure this team will place little stock in any moral victories and will be back out to redress in due course.

If he gets a month he will be free to play on the 24th of March. Suspension will expire at midnight on the 23rd.

Hi carlowforsam
Like the name, portrays a positive mindset. I didn't mention commitment, I mentioned mindset. The avg Carlow footballer obviously accepts his lot as a Division 4 league/ championship cannon fodder. In the 90s we had club teams playing and beating the best of the country. Yet the county team never really did the same. nationally ranked in the bottom 6. fair comment?
In the mid 90s Carlow hurling was somewhere btw 16 and 20 in the country. Slow steady work, up from B juvenile, Christy ring, league 2, and now we are prob ranked 11th?
The hurlers mindset seems to be one of constant improvement, progress. The footballers is one of acceptance. Everyone is tired hearing stories of inter county commitment! (No one cries off in Kilkenny funny enough!) but there's more to it than that. Perhaps our club scene is also part of the problem?

He will be ok lads new rule in last year for the league means suspensions are handed out by games and not time. So depending on how serious it is he will get one or two games. This only stands for inter county league and c/ship at the moment.

Carlow can count themselves unlucky in some ways yesterday. A bit of indiscipline at times and the loss of Mouse did have an impact. Nevertheless it is no consolation to the players to have lost yesterday. That in itself shows the determination of the players and the expectation that is now within the squad.

The quality of the play was very good at times from Carlow. All over the field you could see the intensity and the effort and to be 5 points up in the first half was due reward for their eforts. The second half also saw Carlow go into the lead on a few occasions but the concession of unnecessary frees brought Wexford into it plus their scoring a good goal. We had one chance and it was not taken. They are the small differences that left us behind at the end.

Eddie Coady and Shane Kavanagh plus Mark Brennan when introduced certainly tried their very best. It is a young team and they will have learned a lot from the game and lets hope that Mouse will be back soon. He looked a real threat in the forwards and his free taking was missed also.

There is a real steel about the team and John Meyler definitely has the raw material there to mould this set of players into a more potent force this year. Keep it up lads. It was great to be from Carlow yesterday and see such a great team effort.

Was at the game on Sunday - very decent crowd ( vast majority from Carlow) Carlow were the more skillful but maybe lacked overall power and strenght.
In saying that Jacob was the difference otherwise Carlow could have taken the points.

Blackbog i agree that Jacob made a big diff. when he came on but I thought the wex. No. 6 was outstanding all thru and we didnt seem to do or be able to anything bout it. Thought we hit in too much ball to him in second half when he was in full back line and he gobbled everything up.We should have played wings more but I suppose its easy to hurl on the ditch.
