    If they win Sunday then they're well on course to win the league. With that said, Broadford are known for going on lengthy runs from the second half onwards and are still in the hunt. I'd say if you went back over the years a lot of the points they drop come within the first few games.

    Heard that NCW Town B really put it up to Abbeyfeale at the weekend (despite the scoreline).
    I can't see anything but a Michael's win this Sunday. Top of their league as always and probably will make the final of the FAI provided they don't meet Sheriff. What's more, you can be guaranteed that loss to Abbey a few years ago still burdens them. Best of luck to Abbeyfeale, love this competition.

    They'll wait and see what way tomorrow is first I'd imagine... They are always exaggerating with the warnings

    If there are weather warnings in place at any stage over a weekend then all games should be off no questions asked. They are the experts and should be taken at their word. I donít think people should be put in needless danger traveling to games over a game of ball. And thatís before we get started on damage done to pitches in a season where we are well ahead of schedule heading into mid Feb

    Just a note lads:

    Alan Murphy, Sean Madigan, Andy Quaid and Marty Madden all represented UL who were runners-up in the Collingwood Cup during the week.
    Karl O'Sullivan appeared for the Irish Home-Based Under-21's in a friendly against the Irish Juniors during the week, Killian Brouder was on standby for that squad while Chris Smith was on standby for the Juniors.
    Paul Sheehan was capped for the Irish Defence Forces not too long ago too as they qualified for the Military World Cup.

    In fairness, after the night we just had the games should be called off first thing this morning. I know the weather is ok today but pitches are soaking and will be destroyed. Force them this week and then we will go a month without games

    If itís not needed to call a blanket it shouldnít be called. Leave it up2 d clubs if pitches are playable let matches be played. Happened a lot last year where pitches were playable but blanket called.

    What they'll do is they'll text the club's with good pitches asking for an update, if those clubs come back and say the pitches should be alright tomorrow, then they'll wait as late as possible tonight for club's to check again and then decide.

    What'll probably happen is a handful of club's will ring today and say their pitches are unplayable and most others will chance it, lots of clubs have a full team this time of year and won't care about weather or pitches, they'll just want to get their best team out and win a game regardless of what damage it might do.

    If enough club's ring in early today and say their pitches will definitely be unplayable then ye'll get ye're blanket call off.

    So boys, get onto ye're secretaries straight away and we'll all get to go on the tear tonight 😁

    surely if they are going to do it, then please do it before the Irish match. There is no point delaying a decision until late this evening when itís too late for lads to make plans for their free weekend

    How did pitches fare today? I was at a game today and the pitch held up quite well. Rathkeale 2-0 winners today also, interesting result.

    They're always overestimating with the weather warnings

    Worrying trend in the youths league. Interest not there from players, club s or what is the story? Rathkeale have pulled out. NCW, Abbey, Mountcollins, Ferry have all given walkovers this season. Where are we going at all? I genuinely think that if they asked the players, the 2:30pm games are a put off. FAir play to broadford who look on course for another youths title. they seem to be able to keep it going at that age.

    I arrived in Rathkeale at 11.30 yesterday for the game but they were already into 2nd half !!!! why was it switched to 10.30 ?? Anyway from what i saw Rathkeale very comfortable & never looked in danger. Broadford did seem to be missing quiet a few like King & O'Brien. Offered very little danger to rathkeale back 3 .... Enright & Hartnett totally controlled midfield. Very hard to see them slipping up now for the year in league & cup with possibly Abbeyfeale only threat to them for the double.
