Superb today. What a Team and what a great attitude all working tirelessly for one another. Totally deserved to win today. Will not single out anyone but just say well done to all.

Antrim next Sunday in Dr cullen followed by footballers vs Clare. Hope to see a big crowd there from the beginning to show our support for the hurlers.

Top of the town, you obviously are a keen follower of the hurling team.......not. The clue is in the surnames, one is kavanagh while the other is Murphy. gettit!

Bosco : point Im trying to make is that we should be aiming higher than moral victories, i think we have to get past that. We have a great chance of staying in Div.1 and have been very unfortunate to date. Its a massive mental issue ti get to that level and was illustrated on Sun when we were by far the better hurlers but we tried to defend in the last 15 instead of driving on. We also have gotten a decent draw in Leinster this year so I hope we can push on. It would be great if we could get the likes of D.Murphy, E. byrne and paudie kehoe back as they would really give us great back up. Anyone know what the story is with R.Dunbar, is he still involved, very skilful hurler.

top of the town. Come back here when you know what you are talking about.
penny pincher. Would you lads get a life. Teams don't go out looking for moral victories. That claptrap sounds impressive but meaningless tripe. They went out to win as always. Keyboard experts...

What do you think they are doing when they take the field?

You are insinuating they are looking to be honourable losers.

The hurlers are making great strides at the moment but need to learn how to close out games.This only comes from playing at the top level which none of this team have played in division one before.We had a chance to go further ahead yesterday and the ball dropped short into keepers hands.We just tried to defend what we had which is a dangerous tactic.We have to try and stay in division 1 because going back down would be a desaster and with the new hurling structures set to come into place next year, it will be harder to get back up to that level again as you will have to play bottom of division 1 in a playoff game to win promotion.

We can be very proud of our hurlers and the effort they put in, their keen desire to progress hurling in our county on the national stage, and the determination and team work they are showing in trying to get that one win which will keep us up.

The teamwork has been there for many years now. from that has come a desire to really play at the highest level.
We know that the team, the managements have all worked very hard over the past number of years. Of ocurse ;moral victories' are just that, meaningless in themselves, but they do show clearly that this team is now capable and keen to stay up and progress with the best in the country.

Playing some of the best teams in the country is great for our team and hoopefully next Sunday the lads can again keep the eye on the ball and win a game.
They will be the first to say that no game or team can be taken for granted. They will need to be disciplined to ensure they give themselves the best chance they can.

Keep it going lads. We are proud of you.!

Read my post again and tell me where I said that PLAYERS were happy with moral victories. I was referring to posters here doing hand stands because we had played well but lost, imo those days should be over in Carlow hurling. Praise the team ok but dont be happy with losses, thats all.

roy keane wouldnt agree with you. by the way which wan is murphy ??? getting sent off in the first minute is not very clever. sooner young dunbar is back in there the better. class forward

Sean is a Murphy from ballinkillen - he got sent off v Offaly and didn't deserve to be sent off- Marty is a Kavanagh from st Mullins!

Imo we need to make the following changes to yesterdays team. 1. in the goal keeping spot. 2. At left half back. 3.right half forward.4. left corner forward. If we could get Denis Murphy, eddie Byrne and P. kehoe back they would make a big diff. as I thought we were exposed a wee bit yesterday. Anyone know bout their availability. Whats the story with Dunbar, thought he was back in ?
