Underage hurling finals

(Oldest Posts First)

The three division u16 Hurling finals are being played at 3 different venues The Downs, Clonkill and Kinnegad on Sunday morning. Without being disrespectful to these venues (Clonkill pitch prob one of best in county for hurling) surely at the very least the Division 1 and 2 finals should have been played as a double header in Cusack Park. Both u14 and u16 football finals were played in Cusack Park / hurling once again playing second fiddle.

Yes Jobber Have seen both Cusack and fixture list recently ! My point is that underage hurling seems to always play second fiddle. When we were young you dreamed of getting to a final and playing on your county ground. Seems to be a pattern of the underage hurlers losing out on this option.
