An bhfuil peileadóirí an Dúin i mbun athbheochana?

Conchur S

Nuair a smaointear ar an Dn agus ar chrsa peile i gcontae an Din is ioma rud a phreabann timpeall na hintinne; cosil le traidisin, rath agus sr pheileadoir.

Sen ONeill, Joe Lennon, James McCartan, Greg Blaney, Mickey Linden, Paddy ORourke, Martin Clarke agus Benny Coulter, seo iad cuid de na peileadir ab fhearr a dimir peil ariamh. C gur imir siad ar fhoirne difrila ag trimhs difrila t rud acu i gcoitinne; gur imrodar uilig ar son an Din.

Is an Dn agus contae an Chabhin an d chontae is rathla i gCige Uladh le 5 Chraobh Uile-Eireann buaite ag an d chontae araon. Bhuadar Craobh Peile na hireann i ndiaidh an Chabhin sa bhliain 1960 den chad uair agus chuir an acht seo ts le r rga don chontae. Bhuadar ars an bhliain dar gcionn agus faoi dheireadh na 1960id bh corn Sam Maguire buaite acu don tr huair le Joe Lennon ag tgil an choirn ar ais i dtreo na mBeanna Boirche mar chaptaen na foirne sin.

Cuimhntear go forleathan ar an bhfoireann sin mar cheann de na foirne ab fhearr a dimir i ndathanna an Din, bhuadar s Chraobh Ultacha agus tr Shraith NFL le linn na trimhse sin chomh maith agus leag a leithid de Paddy Doherty, Kevin Mussen, James McCartan Sinsir agus Sen ONeill, a bhfuil ar Fhoireann CLG na Mlaoise, sos an bhunchloch le haghaidh na foirne a bh le teacht ina ndiaidh, foirne na 1990id ach go hirithe.

C gur imigh chuile thabhairt ciin ar feadh tamaill ina dhiaidh sin agus nr irigh le foirne agsla an chontae aithris a dhanamh ar achta na foirne a thinig rompu, thosaigh crsa ag feabhs ars eile le linn na 1990id faoi mhaoirseacht Pete McGrath. Bh McGrath mar bhainisteoir ar fhoireann na Mionr a bhuaigh Craobh Peile na hireann sa bhliain 1987 agus bh a leithid James McCartan Sisear agus Conor Deegan ar an bhfoireann sin.

1991 agus 1994, dh bhliain thbhachtacha don Dn, it ar irigh leo an soitheach naofa; corn Sam Maguire, a bhuacaint ars, ag fil an lmh in uachtar thar chontae na M i 1991 agus Baile tha Cliath i 1994. Bh an pheil go smior i Mickey Linden sa chraobh i 1994 agus spreag a chuid taispentais foireann Pete McGrath ar aghaidh chun an bua a fhil ar th Cliath ar scr 1-12 go 0-13, le Linden ag baint amach gradam Pheileadra na Bliana an bhliain channa sin. Derfainn nach ndanfaidh muintir an Din dearmad ariamh ar chl James McCartan sa chluiche ceannais i 1994

n trimhse sin fach t meath tagtha ar chrsa peile sa chontae. Nl Craobh Uladh buaite acu 1994 agus c gur irigh leo Craobh Peile na hireann a bhaint amach i 2010, le James McCartan Sisear mar bhainisteoir orthu chailleadar i gcoinne Chorca le pointe amhin sa difrocht eatarthu, 0-16 go 0-15. Ba seo an chad uair gur chaill an Dn i gcraobh peile sinsearach, rud a lironn an trith at acu ir anos ar an l mr.

Ach, d ndanf dearmad ar an bhfeachtas iontach sin i 2010 is for le r go raibh peileadir an Din in sle br le trimhse fhada anuas. Ach anois, t crsa ag tiont ars agus tabharfaidh an Dn aghaidh ar Thr Eoghain i gCraobh Uladh i m Iil tar is dibh ionadh a chur ar gach duine ag buacaint ar fhoireann mhaith Mhuineachn an deireadh seachtaine seo caite.

C go raibh Muineachn ceannasach ag ts an chluiche, le Kieran Hughes ag deacht na himeartha i lr na pirce, dfhs an Dn isteach sa chluiche, agus nuair a bhodar istigh, lirigh siad go bhfuil siad ln balta an fd a sheasamh i gcoinne foireann ar bith. Thug Connaire Harrison largas den scoth ag uimhir 14, ag buacaint na liathride chun tosaigh ars agus ars ar Drew Wylie, ag scril agus ag buacaint ciceanna saor le haghaidh Darragh OHanlon. Nor stop Shane Millar ag rith, thug largas an chaptaein, Kevin McKernan inspiorid d fhoireann agus thinig an bheirt dhearthir Kilcoo, Jerome agus Ryan Johnston ar ais n lne ln tosaigh ars agus ars eile chun aon bhearna spis sa lne leathchil a lonadh, rud a chruthaigh sps do Harrison an liathrid a ghabhil nuair a dimigh an Dn ar an bhfrithionsa.

Is cir aitheantas a thabhairt de bhainisteoir na foirne, Eamon Burns, a stiraigh a chuid fhir tr stoirmeacha luaithe na bliana: suas go dt Mrta na bliana seo chailleadar 14 cluiche as a cheile sa tsraith, i gCraobh Uladh agus i gCraobh na hireann bhuaigh siad ar chontae Laoise i Roinn 2 ar 5 Aibren 2015. Faoi dheireadh an chluiche bh tuirse orthu, ach nl aon ionadh faoi sin mar gheall ar an dianas a thgadar leo sna taicil. Beidh orthu seo a thgil leo i gcoinne fhoireann Mickey Harte an chad l eile.

T an muinn ag teach tar ais i bpeileadir an Din agus lirigh an taispentas i gcoinne Mhuineachn seo don tr uilig. An mbeadh an athbheochan seo rathil go leor chun stop a chur le Tr Eoghain? Is in ithe na putige a bhonn a tastil agus beidh le feiceil i gceann coicse.
