Essential that due to the sheer numbers involved, this is prime area for targeting huge growth. Literally hundreds of potential players slipping through the net there. The next generation should see lots of them aspire to wear Saffron.
Dlelighted to see Davitts get their own home pitch after all these years. They have had to play in Boucher,Falls Park and Twinbrook over the years and keep the club going
Great and overdue development but as someone else pointed out there used to be McDermots, Clonard and Dwyers on the Falls Road and none of these clubs field any more

Indeed ur right Belfast man, and glad to learn that I am not approaching senility.....agreeing the Davitt's men did have a home base at Twinbrook at a time.
Is their 'social club' not in the same area?

Can recall the Davitts in div one......looks like the Twinbrook men mean business...smashing news..

Would never have labelled them as Twinbrook men, where’d that come from?

His geography of belfast is like you city boys geography of the country ;D

Did Davitt's not have a 'pitch' at Twinbrook back in the days of Div One tenancy...?

I see a SW motion to bring minor football back to divisional boards - I see a lot of FTFs in the all county league this year - not a good sign...

The all county leagues at minor are a shambles...has to go back to Div boards

Think that will be the preferred option PJ........Far too many failure to fields last season.

You're still at it CB. But you haven't been able to correct one single point of my five point analysis yesterday! Still waiting (Yawns) but dont expect a response any time soon.

Instead you try to spin that I'm ANTI Sean Kelly....just because years ago I was advocating SV en masse. If thats how your mind works then Im not even going to try to explain it.

Can't deal with the subject matter, so play the man. Cheap stuff.
Just back BS.....sorry to keep you yawning but afraid u will have to wait for a time before I provide answer to your five point attempt to denigrate JMcL.
Have no reason to doubt him and would not think of doubting his word by research in his club or any other place.

I am quite sure nobody cares or considers my opinion for an instant.....or indeed your own is hardly up there in lights either.
Well ur wing man from Milltown will always jump in to guard your back...but not if he is in the middle at OCahan pk and the opposition is from the south of the county.

You gotta lighten up BS....think u need to get ready to shoulder the burden of disappointments in life..and sometimes take the Cargin route.... :)

Wrong again CB. I didn't canvass against Sean Kelly, I didn't even know him and what a fantastic PRO he has turned out. I made it known I was pro SV and supported their bid in its entirety. You can try to mislead people I was anti Sean Kelly if you want but people can see right through that. Your deliberately playing me now instead of the subject, that's obvious, but if you want to go down that road....fair enough!

Have a look at page 1 on this site BS......forgetful or economical with the truth.....?

Bs notice you didnt have any queries about cd and tr interview the previous day.u have well and truly nailed your colours to the sv project.usually the side you canvas for comes out the wrong side of it.

BS has indeed nailed his colours to the mast long time and indeed he has not always been on the right side....did he canvass against the selection of our current PRO....and was he wrong in that one.

However, the question in this instance just how influential has he been in the vigorous and less than dignified canvassing.

Has he managed to bring many alongside ....?

We will see ?

I'm not calling anybody anything fact I'm inviting you or anyone else to point out what part of what I have said is incorrect. If that happens I'll gladly acknowledge. Simple as that!
Will leave that to JML sure he will be in touch....

Got a few issues with some of that tbh.

1. Starting with Dunloy my information is that JML had minimal input (If any at all) to the planning fundraising or indeed delivery of the academy.

2. The Saffron Business Forum was set up AFTER Saffron Vision came to power. Certain of that.

3. The delivery for Belfast plan. Yes I don't dispute there was initial contact made by FQ and Dr Eugene, but.....was only commissioned after an in depth report was sanctioned by new SV sub committee set up by CD. Apparently HQ welcomed the fresh and business like approach.

4. Is Jim not a member of County committee and indeed did he not sit on sub committee when Casement was closed...which begs the question, was this to do with playing our games...or was it to do with closing the Social Club which ended in court costing Antrim GAA a fortune!!

5. Finally, would the question not arise as to what deal did Jim co preside over as a part of the committee that agreed with Ulster council and the late Danny Murphy a set of terms and conditions totally not acceptable to Antrim gaels. - not even an office in the new Casement Park.

I've got a few other queries arising from that article, and whilst I'm not trying to play the man but I think people need to drill into the detail of this article before taking anything here as granted!!
Jeez BS that is rough in the extreme......u calling JML as one who is 'economical with the truth'....!
Hope ur reward is appropriate.

Certainly our Association 2018 is lurching violently towards the late 80s and u do remember.

Am sure your club will be suitably impressed....doubt if you are impressing many in SW or North...

Despite what the "cheerleaders" say I do think James McLean's interview in today's IN was hugely impressive.
He has a most impressive CV more than well equipped for the post and I struggle to find any fault.

Cargin hot seat?

Another Crossan in depth interview, should be a cracker, hope someone puts it up on the board

Or buy the paper??

Nothing about Antrim convention in it anyway

Haven’t bought a paper in years!
Cargin hot seat already occupied I hear and am really sorry to learn of your literacy problem MR2...... :)

Think the challenger for the hot seat will step forward into the spotlight maybe tomorrow...

Heard he had been given some sound advice at the recent under-21 final....let's see ;)

Must be a few from outside the County seeking posts on the CB as ClubAontroma are tweeting/canvassing for no change.

What does this mean? Don't understand.

Think about it ClubA were obviously biased in the that body is representative of everybody in Antrim not only those in high places....NO?
