The Kilkenny club season may be drawing to a close for this year but before the curtain finally comes down, there is one more very important fixture to be played, the U21 final is down for decision between Dicksboro and the Rower Inistioge this Sunday at Nowlan Park. This grade is often referred to as the forgotten grade due mainly to the timing of the competition. The fixture’s committee find it almost impossible to fit this competition into the roster because demand on these players is at a premium during the height of the summer. This year’s competition seemed very open with a lot of teams fancying their chances. Teams like St Martin’s, Clara, Danesfort, O'Loughlin and Erin’s Own have all fallen by the wayside over the last month or so. This year’s competition also looked very lopsided with 10 teams competing in the north of the county compared to just three in the south, other snippets of note are that the Rower Inistioge have just played one game namely the southern final to get to this stage of the competition whereas Dicksboro have come through a tough campaign beating Clara, O'Loughlins and Conahy Shamrocks along the way. This is no fault of the southern champions but maybe the system needs to be addressed. I feel one or two southern outfits dropped back to the B championship in search of honours. My thinking on this situation is that a team will always gain more long-term by competing at the highest level. I've seen a few cases at various grades where teams would be capable of competing at a higher level.

This fried pastry, when made fresh, is delicious, and if freshly cooked doughnuts sound like your kind of thing make sure you get down to the Saturday market in Galway city and seek out the doughnut stall, as they are truly delicious especially with a little ground cinnamon.
