    League such a strange competition. Went from near relegation to making final in last 10 mins of final round last year.

    Three home games only so need to pick up wins there to stay in division. Hope to see a pile of players getting a run to shake up starting 15.

    Brolly fairly went after colm cooper in the independent today. He definitely holds a massive grudge against those "handy" all Irelands cooper won in the last decade against mayo and cork. Not the first time he's gone after coopers achievements in the last few months. Brolly definitely doesn't look good in all of this.

    I cant wait to hear Brolly's satirical take on Philly McMahon's book- it will be as classless I'm sure

    But he won all Ireland's against Kerry and mayo so he won't be going after his achievements!

    So the same teams in the same sides as last year.

    How many years in a row is this Kerry playing Clare now.

    Maybe for the first 2 weeks in the league. After that I wouldn't be surprised to see the same old faces.

    New jersey launched today


    Very nice, love the classic three stripes on the shoulder. Always thought there were too many similar green and yellow tops but that is very distinctive the white stripes on the green shoulder

    I'd say many will follow the lead.

    Who's voice is that on the first video.

    Does anyone know if there is going to
    be a Hurling wall included in the new Currans GAA Centre of Excellence?

    It was on the original plans but have heard nothing since.

    It woukd be good for the development of young kids outside of the Hurling stronghold in North Kerry.

    Neutral venue I'd imagine, so Mallow or Limerick, on Sunday 26th. Should be a good game but think Crokes have marginally better firepower.

    An Gaeltacht had a good win in Munster Intermediate today aswell and I fancy them to be very close to winning the All Ireland there at least.

    At the Crokes game/coming out of the game I heard Fitzgerald Stadium, Mallow and PuC all being mentioned as the confirmed venue, so wait and see. It's been a few years since there was a Munster club final in Kerry, so Kerry might be due one.

    In terms of firepower Crokes scored 2-19 with 2-13 from play and yet on the day were wasteful enough by their standards especially when it came to goal chances - they had at least 4 very good goal chances, although one of those four chances was a very good save by the KiB keeper, the other 3 goal chances were pretty much all a foot wide. They missed a couple of kickable points as well. There was one stage in the first half where Crokes had 5/6 missed chances in a row between goal chances and point attempts, very unCrokes like.

    Serious hard to look past Crokes for Munster and you'd fancy them to give the All-Ireland a right rattle.
