Limerick U21 hurling 2018

(Oldest Posts First)

Should have a good team again next year. 21 of this years panel of 36 eligible for the U21 grade again next year. They begin the defence of their title against Clare in Ennis on May 9th 2018. The winners of this game will play Tipperary in the semi-final. Under the new system both the winners and defeated provincial finalists advance to the All-Ireland semi finals. Limericks starting 15 could be something along the lines of this:
1. Eoin McNamara
2. Conor Mcsweeney
3. Willie O'Meara
4. Jack O'Grady
5. Paddy O'Loughlin
6. Kyle Hayes
7. Finn Hourigan
8. Darragh Carroll
9. Thomas Grimes
10. Conor Boylan
11. Barry Murphy
12. Brian Ryan
13. Peter Casey
14. Seamus Flanagan
15. Oisin O'Reilly

Luke Doran, Mikey Mackey, Paudie Ahern, Brian Nash, Ciaran O'Connor, Conor O'Grady, Josh Adams could also force their way into the starting 15 plus some players who played very well for the minor hurling team this year, Paul O'Brien, Conor Nicholas, David Woulfe, Jerome Boylan, Dan Minehan, Michael O'Grady Mikey O'Brien Conor Flahive etc.

You do realize their is no under 21 Competition in 2018, only an under 20 one. How many of these boys are under 20 on the 1st of January 2018?

Sorry my mistake, but that is great news.Very happy to be wrong in this case, as we appear to have a very strong panel again.

Great to win the under 21 this year and 2 years ago but let's stay settled here. It's an underage competition and there's no real value in winning it again in 2018 if it destabilises the senior team. That s my view on it anyway. Very easy to say let's focus on the underage again and in a few years.....

We may aswell pull out of the u21 competition altogether next year if that's the case... I don't understand how having successful underage teams could possibly destablise the senior team
