in County

All the facts and figures you’ll need for the next few months in Division 3!

Fermanagh (A)
Wexford (H)
Limerick (H)
Sligo (A)

Relegated from Division 2
Armagh (A)

Promoted up from Division 4
Clare (H)
Tipperary (H)

Best Case Scenario:  We win the league head straight back up to Division 2 and the impact of all these new lads makes us forget who PK and Shane Lennon were again!

Worst Case Scenario: We get relegated early doors with Armagh giving us the final nail in the coffin and sending us down to the lowest division in County football!

Most Likely Scenario: We win 3 games and by hook or by crook we stay ahead of the bottom two to avoid the drop.

Best team: Armagh
Worst team: Limerick
Dark horses: Tipperary

Best chance of a W: Limerick at home
Best Chance of a D: Sligo away
Best chance of a L: Armagh above in Armagh

Longest away trip:Luckily we have no southern trips but our longest one is Sligo 202Km and should take you 3 hours via Enniskillen.

Shortest away trip:  Athletic Grounds 88KM, 1hour 11 mins to Armagh and you can pick up some dirty diesel on you way there or way home!

Toughest Ground:  Cusack Park Ennis, teams will be lucky to get many wins there this year.

Nicest ground: Markievicz Park, just outside Sligo town, a compact lil ground is a lot less grim than the Athletic grounds in Armagh and Brewster Park.

Best looking fans: Clare is not just famous for hurling and trad music!
Ugliest looking fans: Limerick supporters are best suited to Munster, Munster Rugby that is!

Best Freetaker: David Tubridy, Clare no relation to the late late’s Ryan, oh wait actually he is!! _etubridy

Top Goalpoacher: David Kelly Sligo, if Fit very dangerous if not his mate Adrian Marren from Sligo oh and Sean Quigley from Fermanagh is a goal a game man!

Nicest jersey: Clare’s with the collar is pretty nice
Ugliest Jersey: toss up between Limerick and Fermanagh bit likes Nigeria’s very uninspiring all round.


Best Goalie: Chris Snow Fermanagh great name,great Keeper.
Best Kickout:  Shane Roche, former forward now in the sticks for Wexford

Best Defence: Armagh
Defender: Kieran McGeeney Armagh Ciaran McDonald Tipperary

Best midfield: Armagh again Aaron Findon & Stephen Harold #partnership
Midfielder:  Wexford’s Daithi Waters on his own in the middle really is enough for them.

Best forwards: Sligo’s full forward line Coen, Kelly and Marren
Best Forward: Jamie Clarke is pretty special. Ian Ryan too, is a class act.

So it’s Division 3, here’s a few reasons to be still excited.

One to watch:Colin O’Riordan Tipperary the young half back went on the All-Star tour last year.

Classiest Player: Ciaran Lyng Wexford he scored a goal that broke our hearts in Drogheda in 2013 champo

Dirtiest Player: It’s still Ciaran McKeever Armagh Grrrrr

Most Annoying Player:Conor Mortimer’s doppelganger and Wexford forward Ben Brosnan. Oh and Tony Kernan from Cross and Armagh for his off the ball antics.



Strongest Player: John Galvin Limerick was a shoe in until he retired now it’s Gary Brennan Clare, Munster inter pro regular. Horse.

Weakest Player: Jamie Clarke might not be able to bench press a bag of sugar
but he defo the….Most Skilful Player: I reckon he could curl the bag of sugar over the bar with 4 defenders hanging out of him. he turns so so quick and sharp.

Fastest Player: Podge Collins from Clare hurling fame.

Slowest Player: Sean Quigley Fermanagh great hands yes. great pace. no.

Best Player in the division: and best player we’ll see all year is Conor Sweeney Tipperary. Division 3 you have been warned!
notable mentions:Jamie Clarke, David Kelly, Ciaran Lyng and Ian Ryan.

Hopefully thats Division 3 covered for you now.
