It looks like the following are the Roscommon national league fixtures for2024:

Should have said that Dublin and Mayo (Not Derry) are the away Saturday night matches. Sorry about that.

I'm not sure you quite understand the term clutch at straws.

Equating a congratulations to our lads who won All-Irelands to us winning 16 all stars is clutching at straws.

Cork opposition for St Brigids and Castlerea in their All Ireland club semi finals in 4 weeks.

Castlehaven for Brigids they beat Dingle in a penalty shootout and Cill na Martra will play Castlerea after they won the Munster final today by 11 points. Would be sensible to have those two Roscommon v Cork games in one venue on the same day but GAA HQ rarely use common sense.

They'll probably stick the Inter on Saturday in Nenagh or the like and the Senior in Portlaoise or Thurles on the Sunday...

Surely Limerick and Ennis would be more suitable? Still you never know with Croke Park

Has been known for a while but confirmed in the media tonight that Ciaran Murtagh won't be playing for Roscommon in 2024 a big blow as we have no like for like replacement for him. Best of luck to him on his year out and hopefully comes back as good as ever in 2025.

Leo Tierney.Lar Wall the two replacements coaches/selectors for Mark McHugh/McGowan remains to be seen how that works out. With a handful of those lads traveling,injuries to contend with and no Brigids players for the early rounds it will be difficult league campaign for us and if we manage to avoid relegation it will be a massive bonus.

Ciaran Murtagh a massive loss to us next year. The team and management have been hit hard in the last few weeks. Anyone know much about Leo Tierney

Ciaráin Murtagh opting out for 2024.
We've probably seen the last of him in a Ros Jersey unfortunately.

The demands of being a modern inter county are huge, particularly when you have to travel long distances to training. Therefore as a long term Rossie supporter, I would like to thank Ciarain Murtagh for his dedication and commitment to Roscommon over many years. To play in an under 21 All Ireland Final, captain his county to a Connacht Championship in 2017, play over 100 games for Roscommon and be one of Roscommon greatest ever scorers is some achievement. I also think that Ciarain played the game in a very sporting manner and I wish him all the best in the future.

A class act and a gent. Will be a huge loss but owes us nothing. Hopefully we'll see him back again.

Am I right in saying he wasn't considered first choice at underage level but worked his socks off to become one of Roscommon's most important senior starters a good example to any young player looking to make a break through. The game will be lesser without him next year.

Big blow losing Ciarain but he owes Roscommon nothing and hopefully we see him back in 2025.

It's very hard for a county like ours to compete with this level of player turnover. I believe Eddie Nolan is also travelling next year so that's 6 of last years panel gone so far alongside Conor Daly, Richard Hughes, Niall Kilroy, Ciarain Murtagh and Cian McKeon.

Staying in division one will be a very difficult task now and I hope we haven't missed the boat over the last two years when it comes to making a semi final. Badly need some younger players to step up this year and hopefully we can find a few bolters from the pack.

You are right to a large degree. His younger brother Diarmuid had a much higher profile (well deserved) at under age level. Ciaran actually did not start in the 2012 All Ireland final but came on as a sub against the Dublin team that included Jack Mc Caffery / Ciaran Kilkenny etc.
Ciaran was/still is a very classy forward, great to read a game, always seemed to have control of the ball, turn on a sixpence, accelerate into pace and take his score. He was also one of the best foot passers in the game.
Hopefully he is only taking a break for a year. He will certainly be badly missed this year. However there are lots of good young forwards putting their hands up so it is not all doom and gloom for the Rossies.

Add in the Brigids players ( Stack, Fallon, Dolan, Ben) who will miss the first 2 League games at least, plus Enda missing the opener .....
We'll need a lot of lads to step up and quickly if we're to stay in D1.
