    Byrne's ambitions were done when Steven Beattie took him out at Turner's Cross and did his cruciate. He never had much pace but what little he had was gone. He's done well to reinvent himself as a centre half but in a poor enough Shels team.

    They have a Brennan in their team so what else were people expecting I suppose.

    Im guessing Sheppard/ Kilduff/ Luke Byrne would all be amongst the highest earners at Shels? Worst players on the pitch. Big(ish) names ; very little production. Shels have so little quality that even Cork might have beaten them in that play off game.... I thought Shels were far away from a decent team last year when they won the first. For a team that spent a bit of cash, they were fiercely dissapointing when I saw them and didnt improve this year either.

    Shels got lucky that it was only a half season, it gave them a chance of surviving. They would have been found out over a full season. Cork and Shels were in a division on their own in terms of quality.

    Longford desperately need more quality attacking. Some easy passes not taken in the second half, they could have hit them for 3 or 4. Easy to see how Athlone spanked them in the cup.

    Great seeing the scenes with Longford fans! Made my weekend.

    No doubt about it we do need to upgrade in several positions if we want to have any hope of staying up next season. But we'll worry about that in a month or two.

Daire has proven me wrong. I was unsure earlier in the season but he obviously has the squads respect. Is Daire from Dublin 8 area D24?
    He is from Tallaght. Kilnamanagh to be precise.
