Whos Buff Egan and whats snapchat?

I never once said anything to say that Cushendall hadn't any experience around them or if I did can you quote me? Naw you cant  :-X

No one is being set up for a fall I was just stating things how they are and whatever happens on sunday will happen and if its our last final for the next 5 years you can always quote me on my previous posts and say you told me so chap.

Now to find out more about this snap chat  8)

I stated Cushendall had plenty of experience also along the line,you are right you didn't mention it but did I say you did?

I'd say you know rightly who Buff is  ;)

Its nothing to do with the fact we have won a few minor championships JJ. As you would prob know yourself if you watch as much club hurling as I do when your own club or even a rival club is in the ascendency. Off course there are minors who have came through and a lot more to come that are fantastic hurlers but putting that aside Paul Shields is the best hurler in Ulster when fit and healthy and thankfully at present he is that. Nigel ,Woody, Kevin Molloy all super hurlers and have plenty more years left all young men

So its nothing to do with winning minor titles that people think Dunloy are going to dominate at senior its a combination of youth and experience and the countless hours work that's being put into them by 3 men who between them have 30 Antrim championship medals so unlike St Johns and Rossa we are here to stay and you can believe that

Whether it starts on sunday sure we will see but the future of Antrim hurling is green and gold. Every dog has its day and our pups are starting to bark

Stop watching Buff Egan on Snapchat.

Confidence is one thing but arrogance is another! Philip Campbell, Brian Delargy & Karl McKeegan have fair experience around them also.

There is no doubt that Dunloy are coming on strong and fair play to them but just reign it in a bit there as you and other supporters could be setting these lads up for a fall..

Makings of a great game on Sunday between 2 quite contrasting teams. Cushendall who are at the top but haven't much coming through. Dunloy who are climbing back up again and have some of the most talented hurlers I have ever seen coming through.

Will it be a year early? Will the stage get too much for these young players?

The answer to both is no. These boys all ready have more medals with club/schools that any hurler will have in a career. These boys are born for the big stage. Throw in the best hurler in Ulster as in Shorty in to the mix at the top of his game and there is no reason why Dunloy cant come out on top.

Time will tell like it always does but come Sunday evening the 1st of many Antrim championships with this young team should be back in Dunloy
"haven't much coming through." We had 4 county minors this year and walked the north Antrim file. Our minors are the only team that gave Dunloy minors a game this year. Dunloy beat us by 1 in the under 21 and we hit the cross bar in the final 5 mins. You are doing us a bit of a disservice there aren't you?

He/She was looking a bite and caught you hook line and sinker.

No no harm done  ;), it was a scandalous objection but nothing new there.

Could be a good example for other clubs to follow.

Seems to work well out in the sticks but for whatever reason the city teams struggled with that type of  raising money! Trust me we have a dedicated team working on such things and working with the local agencies to achieve better facilities, we hope to be in a position to change things in the not too distant future

Out in the sticks is where you'll find the true GAA people.. not in the city.  :-* ;)

yeah the ones that jump fences and hit kids and the ones that beat up referees  ;)

The ones who can do that and not get caught..

Should be a cracker, mainly dry this week bar tomorrow so hopefully the ground will harden up a bit and conditions wont be a talking point....

Hard to call, maybe a year early for Dunloy but if they manage to get over the line then the coneyor belt of talent coming through of the 3 times minor finalists and under 21 champions and the now reaching the final it could be a new begining for Dunloy...

Course Cushendall will be having none of that crap and if they manage to turn over more scores from the possession they had against Loughgiel then they should win, McManus still the big engine in that team and he drives them over the line and they have managed to grind out results, propbably a feeling of unfinished business with the All Ireland run so plenty for both teams to go for!!

You on duty?

Nope? I'll probably watch our kids in the Nipper Quinn final

Noticed a few fixtures for Sunday, bit of a clash for some people who would want to go.

Noticed that myself, some football fixtures too, I'm sure if the clubs could talk to each other then they could arrange a better time?


As for the minor final, Dunloy when they got going were too good for a big Ballycastle side, Ballycastle had chances but goal win games and Dunloys second goal was something else, Dunloy seem to have a great system (im sure on purpose) of having great past hurlers putting in the hard yards with these lads every year, I know how hard it is to bring

I have to praise Glenariffe for their efforts in helping me out with umpires, who did a great job and their efforts at keeping the ground (considering the conditions) in great shape. and the tea and food as usual was great

Agree, let's hope clubs sort it. I know the attendances at the semi final were hampered as lads had games fixed in Div2 hurling.

Glenarriffe are a super club.

Am I right hearing that they are near ready to start their construction?

Seems to be, the club rooms will be gone soon enough, well so I was told on Saturday.. So I had my last cup a tea up the stairs!! Been having sarnies and tea up there for 29 + years!! Probably some more if you count juvenile level

Thats great news for them and the wider area

How? Why?

I thought that anything good and positive that happened any GAA club would be positive for the club members and parish that it belonged to. For to long negative press about our association have been aired and written, fair play to Ossians in securing the funding necessary and making it work.

McCotter from Sarsfields?

He has already ref'd Dunloys first two matches dont think he would be allowed to ref 3 in a row.


Good shout.

I've played along with, against and have been reffed by skinny and the one thing he ain't is arrogant. I'd go as far as saying he's the best ref we've had since Tommy McIntyre.

Well done to both Gort and The Paddies.

Tommy Mc intyre 😂😂😂
I take it your being sarcastic

No!

Ok 🤔🤔🤔

Who was there better?

He was never a big fan of Dunloy and couldn't maintain the state of neutrality required to implement his official position correctly
I wish him no Ill bit skinny would need to be setting his standards higher than that
I personally think we are enjoying the best standard of refereeing in Antrim club hurling I have seen
Considering the game is faster and the tackle count is higher it's a credit to them


Having said that if we get a bad decision next Sunday that could swing the match then expect me on here with the usual whinge fest 😃😃

We all have our annoyances with Refs, there is a few who annoy me both on and off the pitch!

Any idea who got the job of ref this weekend?
