Replying To Carlowrising:  "Instead of reforming St. Fintin's why not just let them play hurling under Ballinabranna GAA?"
Isn't it the same thing? St Fintans was the Ballinabranna hurling team like Naomh Eoin is the Myshall hurling team. Name doesn't matter but they were refused by County Board but don't know why

No not the same thing because a club can only have one name, Naomh Eoin is the name for both codes as they its the same club, doubt the co board would object to Ballinabranna entering a hurling team under the same club.

Don't really know the ins or outs of it but from my understanding they were the same club just different names. Like Fenagh Football & Ballinkillen hurling almost the very same players played both & up to recently St Andrews was the football end of Bagenalstown & Eirns Own was the hurling end. Also in the case of St Fintans they even used the same pitch & facilities so were in effect the same club. So if county board won't allow a St Fintans they won't allow a Ballinabranna hurling team.

Fenagh and Ballinkilliin are two separate clubs the players who play for both are members of both, some kildavin footballers also play hurling for Ballinkilliin.

Im aware they are separate clubs in name & St Fintans & Ballinabranna were seperate in name also but I'm sure the vast majority of St Fintans players were Ballinabranna players also. I don't think you getting the point I'm making. If Co. board wouldn't allow a St Fintans I can't see why they would allow a Ballinabranna hurling team just because its called Ballinabranna hurling instead of St Fintans.
Anyway best wishes to Carlow footballers today against Longford. With Tipp winning yesterday we just have to avoid losing by 21 points to progress to preliminary q/t. I would love to see us having a right cut at Longford as its kind of a free shot. Longford ran Limerick close while we were well beaten & they hammered Wicklow who we beat by 1 so form says Longford. Today is a day made for our fast men & hopefully we can get a good result.

Great win today. Some recovery from Limerick game fair play to all the lads. Some impact from subs again.

Great win today. I said at the start of the year that this team needs needs top of the ground and dry ball. They're a good young running team with plenty of pace when they get those conditions. Home game next no matter who it's against they'll have a great chance especially if the grounds stays hard and dry.

Great win, it's hard to figure out this team, hopefully today is a turning point though and we can push on now and make the quarters proper

Regarding support, very few in a small attendance on Sunday in Portlaoise from Carlow.
I don't expect a big attendance on Saturday either. The same old reliables were there hut very few outside of the usuals.
As for the hurlers, I think they will get a bigger following against Dublin. Their win captured the imagination of a lot of people and even those who are often lukewarm will turn up for this game.
The footballers have a great hence kf advancing while i believe the hurlers will be up against a strong and focused Dublin.
But hope springs eternal also!!

Best of luck to the Carlow footballers tomorrow great result last week can't remember when we last beat Longford.

Team seem to enjoy hard ground where they can use there speed to attack at pace to get 2 wins from 3 is great and reward for the hard work of the players.

To finish off remember couple years ago been at a game we lost and someone saying it's a good thing we don't play New York or they'd beat us aswell guess Saturday will give us our answer if they will or not.
