They won it last year but Galbally beat them well in Ulster. If they win Derry again this year can they play in Ulster?
Surely they should play senior in Derry though?

Historically there has never been promotion through winning the junior or intermediate championship; promotion has always been based on league.

However, that is changing.  This year there has been a "de-coupling" of the league and championship meaning, for example, next year Lavey will be playing Division 2 football but are still in the senior championship and 2 out of Swatragh, Coleraine, Loup and Ballinderry will still be playing Division 1 football but will be in the intermediate championship.

I still don't think there is any promotion for winning junior or intermediate championship this year (and possibly next year??) as the numbers in the senior championship are being reduced from 16 to 12.

Why are they dropping senior down to 12? What's the rationale?

Making room for 4 regional teams??

Clann √Čireann II 4-12
Ballyhegan 1-8

A really poor showing from Ballyhegan but they'll represent Armagh regardless.

That would be great stuff.

The Townies - Derry city, limavady, and Coleraine (portstewart).

Mountain men - craigbane, Claudy, slaughtmanus, foreglen, Feeney, glack

The midcounty badlands - Ballerin, glenullin, drumsurn, drum, greenlough

South Derry blacksheep - ballinderry and the rest of the non top tier south Derry clubs not already mentioned!!

Wildweasel74

Ballinderry probably be the strongest team at that level since Glen dropped down 10yrs bck.

Christmas Lights

Lisnaskea running amock in the fermanagh junior final,  15 points up with 20 mins to go.

Seems to be a classic in the Derry championship. Just 1 score in the opening 20 minutes of Watty Grahams and slaughtneil.

Bit of scrapping providing the entertainment but

Bring back club football

On what basis?

Poor outfit.

I'd say Ballinderry have a lot of players coming through.

Coleraine don't.  Mc Goldericks and Holly etc. have been brilliant sevants to the GAA. But age catching up with them not and with little coming through, they could slip into junior over the next 5 or 6 years.

Arva with their experience of playing in Division 1 this year should be favourites for the Junior Championship.
If Blackhill win Monaghan they'd be favourites to reach the final In the other side of the draw. They won Ulster in 2019 and narrowly lost a final in 2016 to the Rock.
Some decent teams in the Ulster Junior Championship overall.

Two of Declan Bonner's sons were lining out for Na Rossa at the weekend, as was Adrian Sweeney, former county star, who transferred from Dungloe not too long ago. Another lad who was in the Donegal squad for a few years, Adrian Hanlon, also lined out.

Some comeback for Bonner and the rest of the club. They came near to folding in recent years.

Adrian Sweeney must be near 50?
