Quick question from me again - as the Derry SFC is planned to be reduced from 16 to 12 teams for 2023, from what I see the plan to do this involves relegating four teams in four separate relegation play-off among the eight 1st knockout round losers. Does this mean that this year's IFC winners won't be competing in the 2023 SFC?

Yes - no promotion for this year only. In order for IFC winner to come up you’d have to relegate 5 teams in order to keep the 12 team league for next year. Also the IFC winners are effectively the 17th best team in Derry. You’d be putting them in with the 11 best teams in Derry for 2023 which would be a stuffing match for majority of the games. It goes to 1 up and 1 down from next year I believe.

Unlimited subs in the McKenna cup. I assume the same for all the pre-season competitions.

Is Downpatrick competing at Mageean level a sustainable thing or do they just have a strong group?

Slaughtneil free to concentrate on the hurling now..

When do they play the Dunlodians and has Horse worked out a way round their packed defence?

Game planned for 12th December with final down for 9th January but I believe Ulster GAA are meeting to bring games forward now that there is no clash with football for Slaughtneil.

Where would game likely to be held? Semi final is usually on a home/away basis and Dunloy have home advantage this time. There was 6000 landed to Owenbeg last time they played in semi final.

Cormac O’Doherty picked up a shoulder injury in hurling final and missed the football semi and final. Would be a big miss for Slaughtneil if he wasn’t able to make it.

Glen team from the first final against Armagh Harps;

C McCloy; O Hegarty, R McDonnell, T Convery; B O'Kane, C Carville, C Mulholland; R Dougan, E Bradley (1-2, 1f); M Warnock (2-2), S O'Hara (0-1), C McCabe; D Tallon (1-0), C Convery (0-3, 1f), C McFaul (0-4, 3f). Subs: P Gunning for McCabe (36), G Tallon for T Convery (49), O Glass for McCabe (52), T McKenna for D Tallon (54), K McErlean for Warnock (55).

Conor Carville, Michael Warnock, Ryan Dougan, Emmett Bradley, Danny Tallon, Conor Convery, Ciaran McFaul and Paul Gunning all likely to start. Cathal Mulholland, Stephen O’Hara and Cahir McCabe likely to come it at some stage. Oisin Hegerty still plays but has been hampered by injury.

Still a bit off from seeing a game in Casement. Best case scenario, games will be there in 2023.

Chairperson of the Casement Park Stadium Development Project Board, Tom Daly, hopes that GAA matches will return to the Belfast venue by the second half of 2023.

The decision by Northern Ireland’s Infrastructure Minister, Nichola Mallon, to recommend planning approval for the redevelopment of the stadium has now made it possible to imagine what the timeline from approval to ribbon-cutting will look like.

There’s still a journey to travel, but Daly is positive a very important step in the right direction has been taken.

“The Minister has announced her intention to provide notice to approve the project," he says. "It'll be about a week before we get the form of notification which will have attached to it planning conditions.

“We know there are going to be 55 planning conditions. For example, it will set the capacity at 34,578 and it will allude to a maximum of a three concerts per annum.

“A lot of the other planning conditions are related to environmental requirements. There's nothing there that we're concerned about, but we'll still have to study it.

“What happens then is it goes to Belfast City Council and then it has effect then after 28 days. We're then into a bit of a fallow period where we couldn't issue construction notice until we get past a number things.

“In addition to that, our planning design now has to be further developed with the contractor. So we'll have to do design development work in liaison with the planners with the builder's design team. That's a further detailed drawing stage which also helps pin down things in advance of us issuing a construction notice.

“That whole process of getting past certain windows for legal objections and sorting out the design process, we would see that with a fair wind we could be on site by the middle of next year.

“We would visualise it being a two year construction period. So, with a fair wind, we could see games taking place in that stadium in the latter half of 2023.”

Daly believes that a redeveloped Casement Park will have a very positive impact in a variety of ways that will be felt for decades to come.

“First of all there's a universal feeling of satisfaction throughout Ulster that something that has been so much a part of the strategic plan of the Ulster Council and with a big Antrim involvement, but also fitting into the national strategic plan of at least one major stadium of modern standard in each province, is now closer to being achieved,” he says.

“Among GAA people there will be a lot of satisfaction that has been achieved.

“It will mean an awful lot to people in Belfast and Antrim, particularly GAA people, because Casement Park has been historically very important to them and they haven't had it available to them for a protracted period of time.

“I suppose it's really a field of dreams for young people in Antrim and Ulster.

“The whole thing was founded and grounded in good will and a very positive attitude to doing something constructive that would boost the economy and boost sport and boost the whole profile of Ulster and Belfast in terms of the sporting heritage of the city.

“I think that ultimately is this is delivered, if you look at all the other big things that have happened in the space of civic projects around Belfast such as the Titanic centre and The MAC Arts centre and the work that has been done to give soccer and rugby what they asked for.

“If that is achieved for the GAA as well we'll have a city with very modern venues and sporting infrastructure that opens up all sorts of possibilities when those resources are combined with each other in terms of external events over the next 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years.”

Minor finals
2000 Slaughtneil beat Bellaghy
2001 Ballinderry beat Glen
I think there was a Slaughtnel and Glen final in either 1998 or 1999

Derry’s championship is based on the senior league. Teams finishing 1 and 2 get a bye into semi finals. Teams 3 4 5 and 6 play in 1/4 finals. Winners progress to semi finals with 1 and 2. Losers play intermediate final. Lavey and Ballinascreen who lost the senior semi finals this year couldn’t have opted to play in the intermediate. Coleraine finished 7th in senior league and were in junior final with Na Magha who compete in Antrim division 4 I think.

I get annoyance at Banagher being in the intermediate this year as they finished 3rd in the league. But they got caught fair and square in the championship but it’s not like Derry teams are running away with it every year. Before this system Coleraine and Na Magha alternated between being the Derry representative in the intermediate and junior Ulster competitions. Intermediate and junior competitions didn’t exist in Derry before this system.

Coleraine is a funny one because the strength of their hurling team depends greatly on how they are getting on in the football championship. They were out in the 1st round of that this year so all their dual players were able to play hurling. Last year they conceded a junior final as they were still
In the football championship, albeit they weren’t helped by going to a replay in the football 1/4 final.

Third year of this format in Derry. Lavey got beat in an Ulster intermediate final in the 1st year of it, by Keady I think.
