Senior Final Questions

A few questions ahead of the big game


that might be answered Sunday

SOM Louth

Why was there not one SOM payer on the county panel this season?
Peter Nixon briefly played a couple of O’Byrne cup minutes but that was it.


Is Conor Crawley worth a shot with Louth?

He’s big, he’s strong, he’s a handful, he’s a competitor, he an excellent target man.
Could the Dundalk man be an option for Louth next season? I think he is.
Sure, he might be rough around the edges but when it comes down to it he causes every full back in the county problems and provides SOM with the perfect platform.
Without him, they wouldn’t be in a Senior Final or gained all that success last season.
His clash with either Dessie or Darren O’Hanlon will be worth the entrance fee alone on Sunday!

Return to serve

On Sunday, two of the greatest Louth players ever, will be in opposing sides.
Paddy Keenan and John O’Brien.
That in itself, shows the quality of standard this final possesses.
Return to the Red jersey together would mean automatic promotion from Division 4!

Are the Pats team the best Louth Club side ever?

The Blues of the 60’s,The Cooley side of the 70’s,Stabannon of the 90’s
Does this bunch of Lordship Men top them all?
In the modern era a 7th Joe Ward in 12 seasons on Sunday will confirm this.

Most decorated dual player ever?

Ronan Byrne has umpteen senior Hurling Championship medals with Knockbridge.
On Sunday he has the chance to win Senior Football to go along with some Louth and Leinster intermediate medals.

The Best?

Is Eoin O’Connor the best player in Louth right now?
Midfield, on the Square, he has all the talent and skill and is showing it for the Pats this season.
A man for the big occasions, Sunday should bring the best out of him again.

Can the pats continue to reign?

In a word, Yes.

Are SOM hear to stay?

In a word, Yes.


Final few questions for the masses

SOM are in their first senior final,Who was the last team to win the Championship in their first attempt?
Who was the last team to win an senior the season after winning the intermediate or has this feat ever even done before?

Dundalk Gaels didn’t win the senior in 92, they won the intermediate in 91 and lost senior final in 92 v clan na Gael

How has Crawley not got what it takes?the county team at the moment are dire and need more men not boys. Its a physical game these days.

ridiculous article, better players with annaminion than eoin o connor

Louth man October 1, 2015 at 3:08 pm

Crawley has nowhere near what it takes to play county level , but as you said he is a target man and something we don’t have anymore since lennon went . Prove me wrong and give him a chance ?

Dundalk Geals were the last team to do it in the early 90’s 92 i think
