I know wrynn is good but having him full-back and full-forward in the same team is asking a bit much!!

D Wrynn at full back and full forward.
There's one player named who's permanently injured and has been for the past few years. I'd suggest he is left off the panel until he gets his injuries sorted once and for all. Lots of talent but he rarely plays and there has to be a reason why he's constantly breaking down.

they look to have started very well but once Kilmeena actually started to play football they tore them asunder in 5 minutes.
That team would beat the likes of Carrick and Mohill. The gulf between div 1 and div 4 counties club scene is colossal

I have relations in Leitrim and thus follow the club scene closely.

And you are right, Kilmeena, a small club north west of Westport close to the atlantic, with what must be a golden generation of players could well beat Mohill or Carrick. But there's no reason why they should. It's more of a damning indictment of the poor standard of the town clubs in Leitrim.

Replying To leitrimman1994:  "Word on the street is that Andy Moran has anyone that can kick a ball up training with the county panel . Fair play to him . Good to hear he's keeping his panel tight knit . No paddy Maguire , Keith beirne or Paul Keaney involved this year."
Why no Paul Kearney and Keith Beirne involved in 2024?

Going back to the proposal to take some counties out of the hurling league and keep them in the Lory Meagher only. Shocking, stupid idea. If it went through, those counties' intercounty seasons would start three months later. So what are those committed hurlers going to do for those three months? They might try their hand at a bit of the old football. And the football season will still be in full swing by the time the Lory Meagher Cup starts; are they going to want to abandon their new football team? Would they even have been added to their football team in the knowledge that they'd be disappearing to play hurling half way through? My guess is if this proposal goes through, you can say goodbye to hurling in those counties. I might be wrong, but I can't see how not playing hurling is a good way to promote hurling. Imagine telling Junior clubs Cloone/Glenfarne-Kiltyclogher/Eslin "No league for you; here's some coaches instead for some training sessions on League weekends. Good gossons."

Honestly, who cares? I've gone to a few games and to be clear, it is absolutely dreadful stuff. Load of players going around the place with beer bellies. Dire stuff.

Kilmeena population is growing and they have a huge pick. Parish goes right into the edge of Westport. Many people from Westport built houses out in the Kilmeena area whose kids are now playing for Kilmeena.

The GAA is only as strong as its weakest link IMO. The forefathers of the GAA would be rolling in their graves. If this goes ahead, do not be one bit suprised if someone is brazen enough to propose similar for football in weaker counties.

I do care and don't want this to pass. I agree with the rest of your statement though. The least the hurlers in Leitrim can do is make sure they are fit. It's a disgrace that players swelling out of their jerseys were picked to represent our county on the national stage. Junior B clubs wouldn't even pick players that unfit.

I'm not questioning your knowledge but why was there only 26 players named on the Kilmeena side while Annaduff named 30.

Could the same be said about Annaduff; a club on the edge of carrick on shannon? With many new builds?

agreed. hurling is a skillful game and it is underdeveloped here, which is no fault of the lads playing it, but they would give themselves a better chance of progression if they took it more serious. Do the hurlers get strength and conditioning programs like the footballers do?

There has been no trials to date and I've heard nothing about holding trials in the foreseeable future. Don't believe squad is picked and I'm sure there will be more additions to already large group of players in training with the seniors. Everything to date has been collective with seniors and u20's. I believe this great and will bring on the u20's leaps and bounds. Andy is missing a trick though not holding trials. Himself and MG are outsiders to leitrim football so how in all fairness would they know the best squad to pick without trials. Even if they held trials and didn't bring on anyone new it makes sense holding them just for fairness and openness. Hopefully we see a few trial games for lads they haven't already brought in as I'm sure they could only gain from holding them.
