Replying To Miami305:  ""Ballyhale are an incredible club, a rural parish with a big ability to regenerate quickly; 16 of the 2015 All-Ireland- winning panel are no longer around."

From Anto Daly in the Irish Examiner. Pretty incredible turnover rate that still yielded a Leinster Championship."
The young guys they've brought in are hurling out of their skins, you add them to the fennellys and Reid brothers and that's some side.

Replying To clondalkindub:  "How did Boden lose ? Don't we have all the money best coaches and population in the world?"
84 teams I hear some say , but at the end of the day you only play 15 players which Ballyhale did and were far superior, Boden will be back Dublin club hurling is getting stronger

The top class coaching, huge drive and hunger for success mixed with good breeding has always produced top class hurlers in the small village of Ballyhale. They absolutely live for hurling in the parish.

A new generation has come through now and I think they will deliver a few more club all Irelands over the next 10 years.

Yeah its some club. No to it about it. Robert Plomin has wrote a book called 'Blueprint' which challenges the modern notion that nurture has as much impact in an individual as nature. His studies show that it doesn't matter how we are brought up our genes will 95% decide how we will turn out . The only caveat is that our childhood must not have a catastrophic episode. So our fates are pre ordained.Ballyhale would prove his point .

So our fates are pre ordained.Ballyhale would prove his point .

Just because somebody wrote a book about 'his studies;'; doesn't make it a mater of fact (as you state).

With that attitude, it's good for Limerick you weren't a member of their management team this year cos they wouldn't have won the All Ireland!!!

It helps when you have a family or multiple families that supply the team with multiple players out of one house. The Cannings of Portumna or all the Burkes on the St Thomas's team for example.
