Common consensus is that he doesn't have the pace for senior level Dorcha, but he looks a better and more improved player every time I've seen him. Definitely worth being given a shot at making it next year. His clinical free-taking was always seen as his best asset but he offers much more than that and has definitely added to his all-round game.

Apologies, poor choice of words....changing it to "it is a view I have heard expressed by a few people".

I am not among them, as I said previously I think he is well deserving of a shot at senior next year.

I don't get this obsession that supporters have where if a fella 'doesn't have pace' then he's only fit for the scrap heap and it's especially prevalent in Cork. Shane Dowling isn't exactly Usain Bolt and look what he did to us in the semi final. Declan Dalton has serious wrists and what hemay lack in speed, he certainly makes up for in physicality and power. He's exactly the type of forward that we are looking for.

Tipp beat Galway to set up a repeat of the Munster final. Galway V Tipp was a good game ruined by bad refereeing. 3 very dodgy red cards.
Tipp will have a point to prove V Cork but if our u21s play to their potential they should win.

Sean Cleere is a ref who tries to give a free for every foul. I like that. I think he did a good job. Of the three red cards, the two Galway ones were deserved. Sheer stupidity on behave of the players to act like they did. I thought the Tipp card should have been yellow, but the reaction of the Galway keeper probably made up Cleere's mind. At least you know where you are with Cleere. With other referees you sometimes get away with a foul, yet minutes later you could be penalised for the same thing, as in the Cork/Limerick AI semi. I hate that kind of refereeing.

Two Galway ones were red by the rule book. But there was minimal force in the first one and the Tipp lad made a meal of it and dived. Second one was stupid but I can understand the Galway lad lashing out after being pulled to the ground like rugby. Both Tipp players went unpunished. The Tipp red was baffling, it wasn't a hight tackle and the keeper looked like to hurt himself by flying to ground arms spread in the air. Think of those reds of Cork players got them?

Anyway, where will the final be played? Be great to get it down the Páirc.

Apparently the arrangements for u-21 hurling finals are Thurles, unless Tipp are involved. It seems the latter amendment was made after the 2010 final when Galway objected vigorously to having to play Tipp there.

Given Tipp's history with Cork, they'll refuse to toss for venue in case they might lose. If that happens it looks like being in Limerick.
