Naas Hurling Club


will Naas win the senior against Coill Dubh?, If they do it will be the junior, Intermediate and Senior Titles all in one year. That has never been done before in Kildare or let alone in any other County. It will be some achievement and i really think they will win against Coill Dubh too. They really are now a Super Elite club in Kildare Hurling where for a lot of clubs its a struggle to survive even in senior grade. They could go on a roll now for a long number of years with the huge playing numbers and resources they have and playing underage in kilkenny has stood to them greatly. While its great for the club on what they are doing and are to be commended in it, will it do any good for the future of Kildare Hurling in the long run with one super club and a lot of the rest barely surviving. Celbridge seem to have gone down a few notches, Ardclough and Coill Dubh are aging teams, Leixlip are in a massive struggle to survive, maynooth are an up and down team from senior to intermediate every year while Clane can barely field a senior team. The standard of hurling has improved in Kildare in the last 10 years no doubt but will it be able to be sustained in the long run.

It would be serious achievement for Naas Hurling Club to win all three. I'd be careful though, write Coill Dubh off at your peril. This Naas team will have to show to the steel of the great Naas Teams from the 90's, something they've been seriously lacking in their past couple of county final appearances.
Here's hoping for a great match on Sunday.

Naas are also in the minor final and while this is all good for Naas and the very best to luck to them the bigger problem is that although Naas won both the Junior and Intermediate championships they don't get promoted and will keep winning it and the other teams in both of those championships are getting frustrated.
