There is a lot of talk of the AFL coming in to Ireland in order to recruit players. And who could blame a young player at the moment leaving Ireland - with little or no employment prospects in the near future, what is to there keep them here?
There might be no guarantees with the AFL in terms of making the cut but it's certainly a punt worth taking. But that is at the higher end of the scale.
Locally clubs in Kildare are being effected by players, some key men in their particular clubs moving abroad or relocating in Ireland in search of work.
How has your club or a club near you been effected, have they lost many players.
I know Rathangan and Ballyteague have been heavily effected recently with players leaving in search of work.
