Lennon Cup Final Tonight

The Lennon Cup Final is tonight 7:15pm Darver


Ardee CS play De la Salle Dundalk here’s my preview

This is a game I look forward to every year and this year is no exception.

Ardee are going for 3 in a row while De La Salle are looking to win their first since Paddy Keenan’s team did it in 2002.
Any De La Salle folk correct me if I’m wrong,

When you look through both teams, It’s packed with names that could have a future in red.
Tadhg McEnenany Kilkerley, Ryan Ward Hunterstown, Matthew Corcoran Geraldines and James and Alan Caraher otherwise known as the twin’s from Mattock.
However, the winning of game will come me down to Both sides supporting cast and there is plenty of quality there also, Ardee unsurprisingly have a strong bunch from the Mary’s and surprisingly Hunterstown. While De La Salle will look to the strong Joes/Brides contingent.

Verdict: Floodlight darver, loads of big names on show, Louth minor 2015 prospects, Dundalk men might have bigger names but very hard to look past Ardee’s team dynamic’s and experience.

I’ll be doing live updates later so check out @louthproud
