St Martins U21s Proved A Point, Declares One Fan

In response to the article about one club’s hefty representation on the county u21 team in last July’s Leinster final…

Those St Martins lads went out last night and hurled the socks off Naomh Eanna of Gorey, similar to how they have dominated to other opposition in the previous rounds. Their victory yesterday was symbolic of their performances all year.

Firstly, it is not unusual for county teams to feature several players from one club if that club is performing at a higher standard than others within the county. The Wexford senior camogie team have won four All Ireland titles since 2007. If you look through the teams, they are dominated by the standout club in Wexford throughout that period, Oulart The Ballagh and that is for a very good reason.

The original article questions and undermines the character of the manager Tom Mullally and his selectors. One might argue why doesn’t that keyboard warrior put his or her self forward for such positions if they rate their integrity so much higher than the individuals involved with the county u-21s?

Last night’s Premier u-21 hurling result put that article to bed, and now I hope those lads enjoyed their victory after proving a point to the various critics.
