    Is there any official start date yet? Gonna be very hard for teams to have a proper preseason.

    I see the ref's have "accepted" the only eye witness account of the happening so the season looks like it'll start as scheduled and the team involved ride off into the sunset, i for one am shocked

    Clubs voting back in the outgoing committee left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. One or two of them conducting themselves appallingly throughout the debacle but were voted back in unopposed. With no one new seeming to have any interest in challenging the status quo the league is set to limp on. Oh well at least we can look forward to weekly updates from the PRO on how great Abbeyfeale are

    Hard to see anyone step up to contend with the top 3. I think Abbeyfeale and Broadford will end up fighting it out for 2nd place again, unless Newcastle West pull it together which I don't think will happen. I think the battle at the bottom will be better than recently and much tighter. I think the quality of the 2 teams coming up is much better than recent years. Adare have a good young side not afraid to play football and Kilcornan have a good mix of youth and experience. I think it'll finish something like
    Rathkeale
    Broadford
    Abbey
    NCW
    Ballingarry
    Glin
    Adare
    Kilcornan
    Carrig
    Granagh

    Division 1 I think will be between Killeaney, Rathkeale B and Breska. I think Kildimo will follow Athea in getting relegated 2 years in a row. Shannonside might pull themselves together again
    Killeaney
    Rathkeale B
    Breska
    Shannonside
    Creeves
    NCW B
    Shountrade
    St Itas
    Kildimo
    Ballysteen

    I would fancy Athea to come straight back up from Division 2 with considerable ease with Glantine to follow them. Askeaton and Pallaskenry to put up the biggest fight

    There'll be an Oscar Traynor team this year, managed by Jim Neenan with Gary Egan and Tom Kelly as assistants. Squad has already been named and can be seen in the image.

    You do realise Athea are fairly likely to have no team? So how can you say they'll get up with ease is funny.
    I think Adare will struggle, especially with Adare football Semi final etc likely to over lap with first 2 or 3 games. This will effect a couple of players.

    I think the rest is a fairly good guess. Mountcollins have a junior team and Ballingarry don't have a B team.

    Really? That would be some fall from grace if Athea had no team. I was basing that opinion on the fact that they are a decent ball playing side, never thought they could possibly have no team. I don't think Adare football overlaps too much with the soccer and I hear they have a few decent signings made.

    Who have Adare signed? I think itíll be a battle for them to stay up but then again for the last couple of season there has been about 4 adare lads playing with Rathkeale. If they went back be huge for adare and a bit of a loss for Rathkeale.

    I think your league table above wonít be far wrong btw. Iíd nearly swap abbey with broadford, I know abbey have lost 1/2 but I believe broadford have too. Brosnan is gone to Canada and scored 20 plus goals last season according to their Facebook page. A huge loss to them!!
