Manager: Aidan O'Brien v Louth: 10th March 2012 League: 2nd Division 3
2012 Championship: Beat Longford after a replay to reach Leinster semi-final, where Dublin eventually proved too strong. Lost to Tipperary in the Qualifiers.
Star Man: Redmond Barry Odds: 12/1
Verdict: Lost three from three in the O'Byrne Cup as Aidan O'Brien tried to run the rule over his new charges. Capable of mixing with the big guns on their day, but can be very inconsistent.
