Best of luck to the senior footballers who play Offaly this weekend, a win would be a huge boost for the County.

Any idea of the team? Who are all the injuries John Evans talks about in his interview on the main page?

Best of luck to the footballers sunday, I do think a win is possible, any word on the team ?
1 player id like to see start is Mark Kenny, I thought he was excellent against Limerick that day in Ballymanus.

I didn't see that coming! absolutely brilliant! well done to all the lads and John Evans. We all know there's big problems but let's enjoy this. The match against the Dubs will at least generate a bit of buzz again.

Great heart and determination from all players. Well deserved at the end. We hung in there and were the better team in the 2nd half. and should have won it in normal time. Roll on the Dubs and lets enjoy a bit of positivity for a change.

I said it before that Carlow's rise started with a good performance against Dublin. Wicklow and John will relish the clash with no pressure. Who says that the league is important.

Absolutely delighted for the Wicklow players and management; there's been a lot of negativity in the past few years but a young team put their own stamp on proceedings today and fully deserved their win. Dublin is for another day.

Great display. Its been a little while since we saw that level of grit and determination. Congrats to all concerned. The only way is up and this setup and panel are proving that. What with this bunch of lads and managemen along with the apparent improvement across the board at juvenile level, who knows....... Congrats also to the senior hurlers, not to forget the ladies (at different levels) too. A pretty decent few weeks for the county, all in all.

What are the chances of getting the Dubs to Aughrim. I know there would be capacity issues but wouldn't it be a great leveller. Surely with all the revenue that is going to be generated in the super eights, surely the Leinster council should be thinking of generated a buzz in the Leinster championship and promoting football in the so called weaker counties. We know Dublin will win regardless of where it is played. Dublin supporters would relish the trip the Aughrim.

Fantastic win and huge credit to players , management & backroom. Wonderful to see. Nothing to lose against Dublin obviously and if it gets young lads and ladies out in their Wicklow jerseys and generates the interest - thats the main thing.

Carlow set a standard last year with a very good perfromance v Dublin and that has had their tide rising all through this year.

Good to see the Leinster Council putting to bed the venue for the quarter final. Obviously the dream was to bring it to Aughrim. Great that it didn't drag on. The boys can now concentrate on the job on hand in prtlaoise. Hope the County board does not put in an objection about the venue.
Cannot have the big event been overshaddowed by possible venue controvosities

Any wonder there was no sign of our co manager at the county final yesterday. Sure hes off managing a club team in tipp.

How is our county board letting this happen I ask.
