Carlow - Carlow v Wexford - bring out our colours

Every year I notice a massive Carlow Flag at championship games, i think it might say Tullys on it
I believe we have a great opportunity to beat Wexford, get a big day out against Dublin and maybe take a scalp or two in the backdoor
Anyway my point is for the Wexford game why dont we populate a section of DCP with as much colour as possible. it can be the score board end, the left bank or on the terrace to the right of the stand as you look at it - open to suggestions
I dont know who owns the big flag but we can build on it.
The team deserves that kind support
I for one am coming from UK and bringing my Carlow tricolour - see you there

The tullow flag is alive and well. It was in mullingar for the opening day of the league.

Well done Blackbog. Delighted to see such a suggestion. Having watched Carlow improve this year (apart from disastrous 1st half vs London) I hope there is a huge turnout of support for the Wexford game. Enough of the negativity, let's move forward and enjoy the championship and qualifier season ahead.

All of you who come on here'
buy a flag tell a friend or two. Turn up in DCP and let's make an impact. As fullbach says let's enjoy us taking part, make the most of it and encourage always.

Wow. What a great idea.

I'll bring a few pals and cheer on the lads.

We'd better decide where to congregate though. No point in being dispersed.

This is a great idea. What about making some noise aswell. Has anyone got a bodhran or drum they could bring? Congregating in the one area is a must . Our lads will have an area to gain a lift from then after an important score etc. What do people think of a drum/ bodhran?

Thanks for the replies and positivity
I was thinking we can stand where ever the big flag is. So if the owner of that flag comes on here or someone knows them let's agree we will follow their lead.
I the nk we have the best county colours they make a real splash and be a proper 16th man.
It will give the team a lift and we will get seen on Sunday game.
And if we win we will give the Dubs something to look at

And yes drums would be good or bodhtans

Yes Bimb the Tullow flag is alive and well, but it won't be me that's carrying it this time, I'm across the water now earning a few shillings, can't say when I'll be at another "Home" game, such is life.

That's a pity super sub 15. That Tullys flag has seen a lot of ups and downs. Looking at he form guide we have a great chance against Wexford this year. We have some real quality around mid field and have a defensive game plan.

I totally agree with that Bimb, butTullow CS was hugely successful during the 1990's at county, provincial and national level, yet St. Pat's didn't reap the benefits from Tullow CS success, we'll park that for now.
As for the Carlow/ Wexford game, it's a bit away yet, a lot of soul searching to be done.

Great Idea, be good to have something like that instead of the usual half arsed clap from about 20 people when they come onto the pitch. After all it is our home ground, even though it never feels that way.
Anyone know if there's a challenge game or 2 lined up before Wexford? I know the lads are playing club league games, but need surely to have a game or 2 together before May 21st.

Good to see people are positive about creating a focal point and atmosphere in a section of the ground
Don't leave it to someone else , buy a flag or banner ask others, we have a strong sporting tradition in Carlow , let's get out there .
We should decide where we will congregate
I say follow the Tully flag but behind either goal is best for TV and in fact changing ends at half time to be behind Wexford goal could be a winner
Let's aim for a serious turnout. No half arsed attempts at supporting our team

yes good point - Hurlers always struggle to get a following that they deserve. I cant be there unfortunately, was in Newry but cannot get over again until May 20th. So as Dead as Dodo says get out there
