By all accounts the Point are improving week on week so I expect them to win that one. Was there rows in the RGU and Bryansford match last weekend?

Loughinisland v Carryduff should be a cracker tonight and I think whoever loses will be in serious trouble. This bottom eight will be interesting and a complete dog fight

Bredagh looked to be cruising but maybe they are not invincible and there is a lot of ball to be played

Where are the Cumann na mBunscol finals and where are they taking place. This used to be a great occasion with 7, 9, 11 and 15 aside finals played to a packed Newcastle.

the county board always pull one or two big draws out in the first round of the SFC  ;)
You strike me as the kind of person who would also complain about dark arts if the big sides were kept apart in an open draw.

Hard to please people who approach everything with an agenda.


The dark arts will be out in force tonight in Father Lynch Park.

Is any camogie people on this board? Is there a reason why there are so few camogie games played in the county, there doesn't seem to be much underage being played?

Disaster for our U16's and U14's the last few years. We stopped entering U18's as it was a waste of time. Barring Clonduff no one would play them.

Teams pulling out, not travelling is a pain in the arse. I think our U16 camogs had 4 league games last year and two championship games, u14's got slightly more but not much. Clonduff coming strong at those agegroups which is good to see as.

Our U14's camogs will have their third game of the year tonight if Bredagh turn up and that's not a given, U16 girls have had one. Thankfully the older U16's can play adult to offset that a bit.

U15 hurlers are probably into double figures at this stage.

In saying that at Go games blitzes the pitches are full of teams as it's 7/9 aside, just seems to fall apart when girls hit the teen years.

I would like to see the reintroduction of the hurling board which could work in conjunction with women's hurling to raise the profile of both codes in the county. There are some big clubs in this county with massive numbers who do not have a Sliothar about the place (Burren , Bryansford, Saval and Rostrevor are 3 that quickly come to mind).  I know there are certain people within Down who wanted rid of the hurling board and divisional boards to give more power to main executive but these sub-committees were doing excellent work. the reserve leagues should be given back to the East and Soth Down boards for a start and bar the A league in underage, the leagues should be regional with less travelling.

In relation to girls dropping off, this is a problem throughout Ireland and I do not know what the answer is but both ladies football and camogie do not seem to be working together in this county and young girls are being pulled in every direction which means both organisations are losing out in the long run.

I know Jim McCorry manages Burren but who has he got with him? Still Eoin McCartan and Adams?
Pete mcgrath and pete jr are in with him

They are in with the premier reserves and reserve to get them to win the Quad.

In division one and two of reserve leagues yesterday only one game was played (Glenn B v Mayobridge C). All other games were conceded. This is a major concern and should be high on the agenda for next season.

I'd say that's likely to get worse over the summer months with the big numbers of young fellas heading away for the summer, not that you can blame them.

Is there many people heading away from clubs? I know Liam Kerr is and Dylan Ward.

Looking at this week's fixtures: Bryansford v RGU and Carryduff v CPN look to be massive games. The top 4 split and relegation thereafter is going to be a dog fight.
Ford v Rgu be interesting tomorrow night. some rumurs doing the rounds today about rgu set up. Big Deegans will be keeping a close eye

Tell us more!!
no mooney to the rescue now. down they go again

Hope wee Timmy is resting for the big game vrs Meath then off the Boston.

Prenter heading away? Is the vibes not good in Downpatrick at the minute?

My timeline is full of Kelly Mallon crying about expenses and LGFA not getting use of pitches in Kerry. The LGFA is a wealthy organization, It's time they ponied up. I'm getting sick of the abuse directed at the gaa.

St Joseph’s win another schools title - at least one school in the county is doing us proud. No coincidence their upturn in fortunes since Poacher joined their ranks.

GAA seems to be number 1 in that school at the minute and it can only benefit Down football. It is great to see and fair play to all working to improve it.


Maybe benefit hmp magahberry if they have a team.
