Think all 3 would still have something to offer on the pitch too !

Replying To wexico15:  "According to the local paper new players into the panel are Andrew Boland (Adamstown), Dean O'Toole (Kilanerin), Dylan Furlong (Sarsfields), Graham Staples and Glen Malone (Shelmaliers), Jack Kehoe (Horeswood), Matt Doyle (Glynn-Barntown), and Rory Heffernan (Castletown). They have also introduced a group of next generation players featuring Brian Cushe and Rían Fitzpatrick (Naomh Eanna), Ciarán Regan (HWH-Bunclody) and Jack Higgins (Castletown). Back in also are Jim Rossiter (St. Fintan's) and Robbie Barron (St. James'), with both having recovered from cruciate knee operations.

Horeswood attacker Seán Nolan is unavailable for 2022 as he is taking up a work placement for college in Luxembourg as part of his course .Aaron Breen (Glynn-Barntown) was unable to commit to the new season owing to his final year studies in college. Nolan would be back in the panel if he couldn't travel due to the pandemic.

Gone from the 2021 squad are Shane Doyle (Ballyhogue), John Dunne (HWH-Bunclody), Rory O'Connor (Starlights), Donnacha Holmes (Castletown), Conor Swaine (Horeswood), Enda Kelly (Geraldine O'Hanrahans), and Diarmuid Barry (St. Martin's)."
surprised at matt doyle, i would not rate him, but shane roche knows more about goal keeping than me, has his kick out improved?

Tough draw relatively as even if we beat Offaly we are playing Dublin next!

Offaly is a tough draw, they got promoted to Div 2 this year, probably a few of their u20s who won the all Ireland coming into the set up too.

I'd imagine Pa Doyle will be 1st choice, 2nd and 3rd been Matt and Darragh Brooks.

Malone was one of the best forwards in the Championship this year even though he plays half back, if he wants it he will have plenty of time this year but cannot see him back in the early part of the league even if they go out this weekend.
