Cheers carps. Good win last night. Need to beat Waterford at home next week. We seem to play better away from home against them.

Good win last night we have to back that up next week now, can't have any slip ups in your first two games. If we can win next week we will have momentum.

Good start for the footballers last night. It's a young team still but progressing nicely. If they keep their belief and discipline they have a chance of promotion. Hopefully they won't take Waterford for granted as no such thing as an easy game. It's about taking each game as it comes.

Great win, last night. Didn't make it down, but from the commentary it seemed Tipperary were getting on top and feared the worst. Then Colm Hulton is sent off and Carlow seemed to dig in and find a second wind.

If (and it's if) they can beat Waterford, let's hope they can finally break the Leix curse (at this point, it must be some kind of curse) and, if they manage that, the sky's the limit in terms of the league.

As I have pointed out before, Carlow's Tailteann Cup form has been Division 3 standard over the past two seasons. So, let's hope they can push on now.

Replying To Overthebar53:  "Read your own post there and tell me again that you didn't say what you actually put down in print. Getting used to your ridiculous comments at this stage tho. Let's see now. 1.no major development has taken place in carlow in last number of years. 2 centre of excellence is a failure and no development has taken place there either. 3.every other county has better COE than us. All the above are erroneous and yet you have the gaul to state :"I know I am right"
Ever hear the saying "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt"
You'd do well to heed it in future.
Let's leave this here as after all you know you're right."
You have the Gaul to quote me with a quote I didn't say.


It's best your leave it there is right.

Great to have that two points in the bag from last night.
Away from home against The Premier is a great start. The Deise next week at home will cause problems and it's important that the team keeps that momentum going.
Every team is hard to beat and it will be interesting to see what team is picked. Plenty of options it seems.
Seems as if our shooting has improved and that would be great if that continues.
Great also to see 3 goals being scored and that will be essential to continue to score them to progress.
A nice start !

Does anybody know if Carlow are putting out a New jersey this year?

I notice they wore last years in the game against Tipperary.

Btw, I think that's the nicest jersey we have ever had. Others may disagree, but I really like it.

My favourite is the previous one. Worn in 2018

I also liked the yellow one we wore against Louth in 2018

Well.done MIKEY Bambrick on being selected on the GAA team of the week for the first round of the league. He is a fine player and has delivered when it matters for the county.
I think the new Jersey, even with the red shorts looks very well. I know it got slated early on but it does certainly stand out !

Just to also say well done to Mikey Bambrick, hopefully we'll have more players making team of the week throughout the season. In relation to a new county jersey, the oneills website has stated that a new jersey is coming soon

Bambrick was a level above on Saturday. Crowley, Amond, Dunphy all very good too. County board got the New Jersey's but had to send them back as Mount Wolseley hve pulled the sponsorship

Is this true? I had heard a rumour but thought that's all it was.

If such a rumour is gossip, loose talk or wishful thinking it can be very damaging to both parties. anonymous gossip is dangerous stuff, my understanding is if the sponsorship agreement between both parties was agreed and signed off it becomes a contractual agreement and legally binding.

The jerseys would not have been ordered unless the money was there cash in hand, fact.

Best of luck to the footballers tomorrow evening. It would be a terrific start to the league campaign to follow up the Tipp win with another victory.

Just back from the grounds. There was a real sense of "phoney war," tonight. Carlow took the foot of the pedal once they got ahead.

Let's be honest, we know the real test is in Portlaoise. Please God, let us finally beat them.

Conor Doyle, Ross Dunphy and Aaron Almond were superb tonight. Niall Hickey did well too. And John Phiri is a real talent.

Solid performance last night by the footballers, they controlled the game well and upped the tempo when they needed to. They have a great chance of winning in portlaoise next day out. Hopefully the hurlers can sneak a win today too. Kerry seem to be a bit of a bogey team but fingers crossed carlow get off to a winning start.
