Its being called a commemorative kit, what is it commemorating?

Replying To Benjani:  "What part of the grounds would most of the Louth crowd buy tickets for Leinster Final."
There's a gang of us on the top of the Hill flags and flare at ready , the more the merrier, let's have a cut off these lads!!

I hope Mickey has something up his sleeve (and I'm sure he will) to throw the dubs off a bit I would like to see him bring in McCaul a bit earlier if we're still in touching distance and test out the dubs full backs under the high ball to mix it up.
Let's get behind these lads they've been a joy to follow since the first game below in Ennis never beaten always in the game #AnLúAbú #BigWheelsKeepOnDurnin

Fair analysis?:
Louth have had a fairy-tale campaign, performing so strongly in league and championship, but I still think this game hinges on what attitude Dublin bring.

If they hit the peaks we know they can, they could absolutely blow Louth out of the water at the weekend. But if they go in with the same laboured, slow-attacking approach we saw against Kildare, I think Louth can give them a right good game.

Your right Kudos, Dublin have had a poor league and a poor championship, apart from the Laois game which flattered them. They have not hit their groove, if they still have a groove. We on the other hand, had a great league after a slow start. Beating Meath was what got this team on the road. Crazy game against a good Westmeath team. Even better against an up and coming Offaly team. The Dubs are the Dubs and they are on their home patch but we have been to Croker twice already this year. It is possible, believe and we will have the bigger and better support. Really excited about the game now. UP LOUTH!!!

I seen that but that can be a good thing too not having too much hype being the big underdog, am a die hard fan and I firmly believe with the way this Louth team is playing with steel and determination are well capable of beating anyone including the jacks, best of luck to micky & the lads we deserve it. C'mon Louth

That's one thing they will not do is blow us out of the water like they done to Laois even if they hit those peaks. If we can frustrate them with that blanket defence and catch them on the break we ourselves can blow that Dublin backline out of the water, will be interesting to see how it pans out.

Leinster final Louth v the mighty Dubs?

Good luck to Louth in the Leinster Final, no reason to fear Dublin, they've been so up and down all year. They're difficult to beat at Croke Park, but if Kildare can put it up to them, so can Louth. Clare had them in serious trouble too in the league.

I hope Louth keep it tight early on, and give themselves a shot with 20 mins to play, have seen it so often where a Kildare or Meath team go a game against Dublin full of optimism, and it's 2-7 to 0-3 after 20 minutes. I'm sure Micky Harte will have them well drilled anyway.

Dublin will probably win, probably something similar to the league final. But best of luck

36 hours from the biggest game in my 45 years following Louth. Watching a setting sun over May meadows and dreaming of utopia on Sunday night. Thinking of all the days where we wondered about it all. Days we felt robbed and days we were lost. Thinking of other great teams that we hoped would cross the line. Thinking of days where I cursed my father for inflicting me with this genetic passion for the Wee county! Reflecting on the sheer pride that these boys have brought to our place and the magnificent support they have earned from us. Thinking of Boyle, White, Behan, O'Hanlon, Keenan, Melia, Reid, Lennon et al. Immensely grateful to Mulroy, Grimes, Sharkey, Durnin et al who have caused me to dream again and caused scores of Louth kids to wear red and white and covet their houses in flags and bunting. Meeting Gaels from other counties in work, all talk about what we ate achieving. Looking forward to seeing familiar faces and new ones, roaring our mighty men onto the sacred turf. Even Biden believes! Dreaming of hugging my father and children at the end as Sam lifts Delaney Cup high into the Summet sky. Dont know about ye, but doubt I have ever felt so proud. Luabu - is feidir linn.....

Brilliant post. Shows what passion you have for Louth and what the GAA is all about. Tipperary and Cavan did it against the odds a couple of years ago so you never know.
The best of luck today.

It will be great to see Louth in Croker today. We're all shouting for you. Best of luck to my many Louth friends especially those who never lost the faith during many dark and a few terrible days.
