They looked good on the Web. Daltons have some very good hurlers Tumulty, Mccabe, O Rourke, Kearney the sub no 18. Brownstown were a dissapointment. The big Brownstown players were poor.
I though streaming really good if a bit expensive.

Athlone Senior Football dark horses. Liam McHale one of the best coaches in Ireland.
Good players too. Could easily reach a Senior Final.

Daltons will be hard beat, they finished 3rd in group 2 last year behind Delvin and the wood, but their better underage should see them pass out Brigids and the wood. They play Raharney next, that'll be interesting.

They could make a senior final, but they wouldn't do it easily. Most likely they will make the 1/4 final, but they would be underdogs in every game thereafter. Their first game against Garrycastle will tell a lot. I've said it already, I don't think there really is a dark horse - the winner will come from the same 3 who have won the previous 11 championships between them. Maybe if a shock is to come then this is the year for it, but I just don't see it.

Correction, McHale thinks he's one of the best coaches in the country.
Wonder where Athlone are getting the funds for that?

I for one haven't seen anything from Athlone in the last couple of years to suggest that they will challenge at the business end of the championship, with or without a new manager.
There seems to be a pattern emerging of clubs in the county seeking high profile managers and throwing money at them in the hope that it will work miracles, the Downs and O Mahony being another case in point and even the likes of Multyfarnham doing the same with Rowley. Doesn't mean they'll get any further along than they would have with a good local man with knowledge of the players. You can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear as they say.
