Who made team of the week?

Have a look and see for yourself and send in your suggestions too!


A recent trend that hasn’t caught on in Louth Club football, a Goalkeeper scoring points from deadballs. Alan Sweeney bucked that trend this the weekend kicking a 45′ for the battling Nicks who very nearly pulled off the shock of the championship.

The Clans defence might win them the championship Paul Crewe got forward to kick a crucial score in horrible character building conditions against the brides. Stopping Conor Early was always going to be the key for Kilkerley Cillian Mulligan did this to great effect. The Plunketts had a fine season Gary Keogh was polish throughout and helped himself to a point the weekend when his forwards couldnt find the range.

The Middle Third

We used to be a county full of wingbacks, where are they all gone?
Decky Byrne gets in the team of the week again! his performance for the losing Mochs side needed to be rewarded here. The Joes are in the semi final of the intermediate championship without even hitting top gear or no where near it Louth minor and a lad with a growing reputation Adam O’Connor is a strong reason for the Dromiskin men being where they are. Another Clans man Robbie Curran makes the team and defence his industry for the clans around the middle sees him as vital link for the Dundalk men.

Tall, Strong and consistent Tony McKenna is all that for Hunterstown and more. He is usually good for a few scores a game too. If he wins them enough possession around the middle Htown usually win. He could be key to their unassuming launch of Seamus Flood.
Roche have put their hand up for the junior Championship, thanks mainly to an impressive win over the in form Westerns. Daniel O’Connell in the middle for Roche was/is their driving force.

Forward line


I don’t care who you are, whatever the code or gender, you score 3-4 in a senior championship final you are getting into the team Jenny McGuinness did just that. The Naps went out of the championship the weekend, fingers can’t be pointed at Mark Larkin for that, he was outstanding. With Barry O’Hare out the weekend, Roche needed scorers Conor Carthy’s four from the wing softened the blow.That is now the standard the Louth under21 has set for himself.
Alan Quigley, He’s made the top of the IFC top scorers chart, he’s top scorer in Louth championship football over so he makes the team this week. The hopes of Kilkerley sit on his broad shoulders and Shane Lennon didn’t disappoint, his class saw them through. Ryan Burns He’s back from the US with a bang and now makes Htown dark horses for the intermediate title in my opinion.


So there it is, Team of the week number 4…send in your suggestions folks and remember it’s only a bit of fun!

You ve 2 clans men there and not one brides man in a game that was very flat footed by both sides there wasn’t many men to choose from on the field but padraic mackin for the brides was the man of the match playing at wing back he was able to run forward and create space and be the best defender the brides had on the night as well as being the creator of the brides goal
