    2009 A Championship

    Anybody able to confirm new teams? Apparently Tralee Dynamos are interested? I read here somewhere that Kilkenny City could be stepping back up there. Anybody else able to speculate?
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    That's a wonderful question. There are over 1200 Active users on the site at present..... Sorry about that.

    I think that you are asking a little early. I remember the clubs in the early season sheild were added to later for the A Championship with other clubs including UCD (we had a note from our Daddy.).

    Sporting Fingal went from 'A' preparation to First Divsion preparation very quickly. I mean clubs can adapt at short notice, some may be convinced by LoI arguments at a late stage.

    I would like to see some more teams give it a lash.

    There are some decent clubs around the place, but few of them would have the appetite for it.

    Perhaps a Mayo League selection of Castlebar Celtic would care to join?

    Maybe FC Carlow will make the step up from U20's. I suppose they will have to see how they get on in that first...

    I know Wayside Celtic are gearing up for it. There new ground is coming along. 2009 might be a little early though.

    Would there be moves to pull in any/all of the players with LOI experience already (O'Mahony, Sugrue, Conway etc) or would you be going with your current crop?

    AFAIK, somewhere else. They sold the Golden Ball for a princely sum a few years ago.

    Any more info on that? They're still in the Golden Ball now anyway, and they're very much a community team, I would have thought, so any new ground would probably be relatively close by. Where are they off to, do you know?

    Wayside are fairly close to Bray and small population (at present), is there really any point in putting them into the pyramid?

    Surely it would make more sense to give a push a southside team with a better catchment area of its own, somewhere like Dun Laoghaire massive well off population, good transport etc... egg chaser territory or not lol. Maybe even a club that can get some use out of Leinsters new place in Donnybrook. Looks well

    For instance (probably already posted somewhere)

    Excellent move

    Wayside have shown they can match the league sides in matches so I think they deserve a whack at being in the league. They do have a catchment area of sorts in Stepaside, Kiltiernan, Sandyford, etc.

    Anyone in Dun Laoghaire can hop on a 46A to Belfield or grab the DART to Bray. Similarly, UCD only play a short journey from Donnybrook.
