Johnny Bermingham, Aonghus Clarke and Niall Mitchell are county hurlers, pointless suggesting them as county footballers, Shane Corcoran definitely worthy of a look, Enda Gaffney too, Brandon Kelly and Noel O' Reilly from Milltownpass had impressive campaigns,

Corcoran still has two more years at u20. There is no rush on him. There were good forwards on this years u20 like Whittacker and Leech who should be prioritised for step up.

Matthew Whitaker, Danny Mc Cartan, Sam Smyth Liam Daly and younger Baker would add a bit of freshness to the squad but think a few of them have another year to go with U20s. Adam Neary worked up big scores for Tang this year and has been in before. Harry Niall worth a look in midfield.

Caulry will have no problem getting a manager as great young team.

Caulry job an attractive one in some ways, good crop of players, decent age profile, section A looks weaker than this year and the manager can plan a decent holiday when campaign is finished. On flip side difficult to match this year's achievements

Caulry, Downs, Shamrocks & Killucan all looking for new managers.

With the draws for the provincials coming up shortly is there any news on whether Dessie is staying on?

He was scouting at most of the knockout games so would presume he staying on

Deflating end to the season. Disappointed for Kinnegad but Lomans deserved the win and have been the standard bearers now for a decade and they are not finished yet.

As for my own club who have lost their management team it is back to the drawing board. Shane Curran, Padraig Moran and Eoin Mooney did a good job. Brought our players to a higher standard and the players loved them and wanted them to stay. I had a chat with one of the players and they said they were the first management team to stay longer than a year in over ten years. Well done to them.

Id imagine Caulry will need to get the selection of the next management team spot on-huge progress in the last 3 years under Curran-Mooney-Moran and theyre achievments will have to be matched at least.Good young squad so im sure there will ne a few interested in taking over.

Couldn't imagine Shane Curran driving to the Downs. A team such as Tubberclair would be ideal for him.

Serious squad of players probably best after St Lomans.
John Benton might come back or maybe Jody malynn might fancy it.

Replying To TheGaaMan77:  "I see a lot been critical of Kinnegad when in fact I don't think kinnegad done a whole lot wrong they had a game plan followed it and came up short but on the other hand I think the quality of st lomans was shown even more , they showed they can beat some huge teams with whichever style of play is needed , there renowned for there fast flowing ball moving attacking football , while also showed there steal metal and quality playing a possession based game , I fancy st lomans to go well in Leinster and also I think paddy dowdall has shown he's a man destined for the top in the managerial side of things , Kinnegad aren't going anywhere anytime soon that's a young hungry team , what they've achieved in what has been a very rough year is unbelievable and a credit to players management and everyone involved both as a club and community ,I was hoping for them to get across the line yesterday but it wasn't to be , whilst the majority of our county hate to see st lomans triumph hats off to them what a quality side and what quality in reserve im excited to watch them have a right good challenge at a Leinster title"
Will Clubs get behind them in the same way they got behind The Downs last year. I'm not so sure.
