Galway V Cork Minor Hurling Final

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Congratulations Galway Minors. Great win over a very good Kilkenny team. Cork up next in the Final. Nothing easy there. For what it's worth this Cork team hammered Galway in a challenge match a short time ago. Galway going for a 5th All Ireland in a row.

Congratulations Trump. If we cant keep a reasonable handle on Cork for the next few years- we wont have a strong enough team any longer,[- and ye curtail them a bit for the rest of the decade they could win several All Irelands by 2030. I see Tipp and Kilkenny as currently team building after recent huge successes and the other teams, like us most of the time, will just not have the depth of talent at their disposal to derail them.

Things are looking very good at underage in Cork for sure, after a very fallow period. How it materialises at senior level is still a big unknown though.
If they were to make the breakthrough in this year's senior final, it could set them going on a strong run. However, it could just as easily become a source of frustration if they can't get over the line.
As for this year's minor final, Cork do look very strong and it's very hard to gauge the relative strengths of the teams. This was Galway's first outing of the year, which is madness.
We're playing them in the U20 final too, where they look a serious outfit.

Yeah Cork are due any time now to start taking scalps. You can't keep them down forever. I hope some of the Minors success in Galway translates to the future Senior teams but in Galway it doesn't seem to work that way. Sigh.

Minor hurling was a lot better when it was under 18. it needs to go back..

Ya I would agree with that assessment. For us I think we will be bridesmaids during this time. Unfortunately not getting over the line but not disappearing like the 80's. Waterford are producing sufficient players to stay competitive but not enough to break the glass ceiling except a draw favours us or someone slips up. I want Limerick to get this one or more while the sun is shinning.

Let the "derailing and curtailing" commence on August 22nd

As I have often said before I would to see Waterford break their duck. At their best they play a delightful brand of hurling and have done so down through the decades.

Galway lads should be allowed to compete in a province, the round robin next year is unfair as Galway have to beat both beaten finalists of the big 2 provinces.
Galway minors deserve provincial medals just like the other counties.

It's definitely very dumb and lopsided the way it is right now.

Not fair that Cork and KK get Provincial medals while Galway have to beat the country to get something.
Let Galway into one of the big 2 provinces, young lads would develop better.
Equality, equity etc.

We will get players from the minor and U20 teams. Kiely, Montgomery and Daly will be a year older next year. Tadgh back would help but you never know who is going to be injured. The young minor team were unlucky to meet a huge Cork team and the U20 beaten last year and this year in extra time. It is a pity the beaten provincial finalist at minor are not afford another game it would bring then on considerable. A lot of things need to line up for us to win a senior All-Ireland and many things not to happen. When Mullane and Gleeson were suspended in retaliatory provocation incidents that may have cost us not breaking the duck. These may not be as significant in other counties but with our limited player resources are major.

There has to be a BETTER and FAIRER way. It's a silly setup in that the playing field is NOT level. And hey it may cost us (Galway) some All Irelands but fair is fair is fair!!!

It's hardly the fault of Cork and Kilkenny that a minor provincial championship doesn't exist in Connaught. Surely that is the fault of the Connaught counties?

Well beyond time the rest of the province got the finger out. The GAA's been around long enough

Well Maroonic, when Galway came into Munster back in '59, they came in at all levels, Senior, Junior and Minor and proceeded to play at U21 Level in the Province, when that competition started in '64. The Galway County Board should not have gone into Leinster without been let in stock, lock and barrel

On the other hand I suspect there are teams in Leinster and Munster who would love to be guaranteed a place in the All-Ireland semi-final every year. It's not Galway's fault, of course, it's just a strange system.

Yes Oldtourman as much as I like to cry in my porridge and your honesty in how you view the achievements of all I always feel that the Laois's, Westmeath, Carlow. Antrim etc. deserve better recognition for their contribution to the sport. I will tell you for those who know nothing about Mayo hurling how much appreciation I got for them when we had to play in their division. Joe Henry was one of the greatest that ever struck a hurling ball. Limerick were never at the bottom end of expectation with their hoards of famous players. Many of whom I had the pleasure to see. I was in Killarney that famous day when Richie's shot went between the post. It was if it was us. So now jump forward where you have put all the pieces together and are the kings through hard work, be proud. I cried in 63 and many times since but don't deserve any more sympathy than those counties I have mentioned. Image though how much it would mean before life ends.
Incidentally I am not anti Kilkenny, Cork, or Tipp, but do take exception when it is put forward that they are nothing like a tradition final. Limerick Abu!

Galway should be in Leinster at minor level, I think they asked for it too a few years back but the Leinster counties rejected it.
