A poisonous article.

No doubting Sam Mulroy is a class act.

Let's wait and see can he do it against a Tier 1 team before we say David Clifford wouldn't lace his boots.

It is the 3rd Tier of football after all.

Great to hear from Fitzer that Mickey and Gavin are staying until 2025 at least. What a boost for everyone. If Sogger had got that in 1958 we would have more All-Irelands. Anyway it's full steam ahead starting in the Garden-on Sunday. It will be important too to win the division final in case a division 3 or 4 county get to a provincial final. e.g. like Cavan or Tipp in 2020.. We want a go at the other Sam. Sam for Sam.
Last Sunday was a pleasure. Everyone laying in when it mattered. Keep it going men.

Any reason known why Sogger didn't get another term

That's exactly the reason I posted it Benny. When the seniors are flying so high, why are our minors so under prepared. A friend of mine who lives in stabannon, said that the Dubs arrived on Friday night to and I quote" set up their dressing room" Tvs, monitors, all their gear left ready etc, food, water brought in on Saturday morning. Some
Louth minors were dropped off the panel mid week and they didn't have enough training tops for the squad. That's basic stuff before we get to the usual BS about money, size of the county pick, sponsorship etc. How do ye pick young lads up after a hammering like that?

I doubt if Mickey Harte "sets up dressing room". Good to hear he is now going to be involved with our development squads. Good action by County Board. I hope they bring the under 17s to Aughrim on Sunday. It would give them a lift to experience the atmosphere, see how we play and get a feel for the future. Be positive at this time.

It was a sad story that was probably never fully told. When the team went to New York in 1958 Jim was not included in party. Most people were very disappointed particularly the hosts. Kevin Behan refers to it in an interview in Hogan Stand on 30/11/2007 and talks about Jim's brilliance with the team.
Jim was a gentleman and while he was never a county selector or trainer again he remained a great Louth supporter. He was always seen at games in Croke Park , Navan, Port Laois etc.etc.

'A spell in the army' what century are you living in.

Being tough doesn't make you a good footballer me man.

Sam Mulroy has skill coming out of his ears from non stop practice and is an excellent free taker.

He also takes his strength and conditioning and fitness very very seriously which allows him to play at a huge intensity for 70 plus minutes.

Lads well done today, That was a pleasure to watch. Great to see the confidence in the team. The supporters were great too. Such a great crowd for an away game and we definitely had an impact on the team. Thank God for Sam Mulroy, he is some gaelic player. Tommy Durnin was good again, he is now a key player for us. Bevin Duffy is in the perfect location for us now and it was great to see Ciaran Downey putting up a big score, well taken goal too. McConnonl and Jackson really starting to fit. Ciaran Byrne really looks the part, very dangerous player, he is one to watch. McKeever also is do important with his attaching runs, great to watch. Whole team played well. Yet again a team just tan out of ideas against us. If we can just put them away earlier is the next level for us, we'll possible. Overall delighted, It was brilliant to see all the Louth fans and kids out with the team after the final whistle, a special moment.

Congrats to the Louth team on their promotion to Division two. After two matches it looked like that they had a battle on their hands to stay up. The comeback against Limerick was the real turning point in the league. Louth's match in Croke Park on Saturday will be their first time in HQ since losing the Division 3 final to Tipp in 2017.

Ollie I think we played Laois in Croker in 2019 NFL when they broke the training rules. We won with Ryan Burns having a stormer. I hope we get a repeat to-morrow. Good luck to all
