Christ on a bike can the County Board call their guard dog back in

The man asked a simple question

For some reason every year these posts come up!!

If you are a member of your club, speak to your club Sec. They will have all the information you need on the fixtures... They normally send out on initial list for the clubs Sec's to see if it interferes with any club dates that are fixed for other things, once they are ok'd then the fixtures are sorted.

They are not made public until then, any issues on getting the fixtures out (in my experience) is down to the clubs sorting out their own needs

I gave him a simple answer… like I said any clubman would know this
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

No fixtures available at the minute.
Fixture dates are agreed first ( start of Feb )
Actual fixtures were released  on 3rd week of Feb in 2022.!

Big county game on sunday. I don't think I see one person predict an antrim win in the predictions thread. Hopefully all wrong. It would be good to get a win to start as I think we will get it tight enough staying in that division this year. Any thoughts on team?

Whatever happened to the full back burke that played a couple of years ago? I remember him marking Quigley out of the game one day and always thought he was a very good defender. Does he play anymore or just no interest in county football?

Aye Conor Burke. Decent big player, he had a great game that say. You're right he seems to have drifted off the scene completely.

Does he play for his club anymore?

Conor Burke has been injured after he tore his hamstring off the bone v Loughgiel in SHC in 2020. Hopefully be back this year!! It was a bad injury, tried to come back in 2021 but done the hamstring again in 2nd or 3rd session back and had to rehab from then to hopefully this season!!

Expect to see the Murray’s start, hopefully the experiment with Stewart at wing forward is over and he returns to middle to partner small. Centre back and full back a lottery, no one nailed on yet. We need to provide more cover to our full back line than we did in McKenna cup, completely isolated and thus leaking majors.

Is Conor on board? No sign of him in McKenna Cup games, he would be a big presence in the team / squad if he is there.

If IN report is accurate then Conor Murray is not on board this season. It is going to be a tough campaign I think

That is accurate. Was in for a short stint at the start but isn't on panel now.

If we stay up I'd take that tbh.

Conor Murray one of our best so big loss.

Is promotion not guaranteed now?

I'm expecting wholesale changes from the McKenna cup games, if not personnel then certainly system.

"The Johnston brothers – Ricky and Martin – have stepped away from the panel. Mick and Tomas McCann – both carrying injuries - haven’t re-joined for the new season.

Their Cargin club-mate James Laverty, who occupied the centre-back role last season, has retired from the inter-county scene and experienced front man Conor Murray of Lamh Dhearg isn’t expected to feature in 2023."
