What competition are the u15 footballers competing in? Have they reached a final as you allude to them playing in Croke Park?

It was interesting to read on the hogan stand about Louth appointing an academy director to oversee the academy and a group they call 'rising stars' - is there a similar role in Wicklow? if not, do people think it is down to financial resources?

Replying To Freethinker:  "Definitely wisdom in that. Although I heard a rumour earlier saying that Eire Og may have had up to 9 panel members on hols or unavailable for whatever reason. Only time will tell that story. . Personally I'd love to see Dunlavin become strong again. They have contributed many fine footballers for inter county over the years. Mostly when the county has been strong there would be a Dunlavin player or two around."
I heard that Eire had a few missing alright, seems a lot of teams did for the first game going by Garden County Sports fabulous insights (more on that later). AGB were down a few starters , Balto missing Tommy Keogh and a couple others was big , An Tochar missing 4-5 starters, Barndarraig a couple of their huge players. Seems teams are a bit more prepared for the format this year and know while starting strong is of benefit, it's a bit of a marathon and no need to risk fellas early. Also for lads that are away for the first game it's not the end of the world with the 3 week break to when it all kicks off.

Back to Garden County Sport, brilliant brilliant coverage fair play. Best few quid you could spend if you support Wicklow gaa. Nothing generic about their coverage, they had a good grasp on all the teams and players , very refreshing to see. Hopefully get some live streams for the knockout rounds to go with their brilliant commentary.

He said on his podcast a few weeks ago that he wanted to stay in Wicklow as he felt he had "unfinished business" there. However, he said it was out of his hands and was up to the players and ultimately the Wicklow Co Board if he was to stay
