I'm still waiting for an answer Johnny for you to explain how your club owns St Mark's.

We are in the school every night of the week
We have full uninterrupted use of the facilities including the Gym/fitness suite and halls etc
We use the pitches in the longer evenings
We host all our blitzes there for small underage grades
Committee meetings are held there
The staff are even nice enough to provide tea bags, coffee and milk for us
NO ONE ELSE (GAA CLUBS) CAN GET INTO THE PLACE AS WE OWN IT..

Is that all clear enough for you???

St Colmans have taken two serious beatings in the last week and with St Marks only winning the local nerf wars competitions - is it any wonder we ainít producing enough talent the likes of Tyrone and Donegal are.. consistency at schools level gives minors a chance and they step up to u20 etc etc

How will they win if they are not being coached as much as other counties?

Is this a genuine question that you want answered or a general statement??

Doing classes to pay for the mercenary that is Mullholland?
You own a bog of a pitch, and rent a pitch off the council....
Your meetings are held in the clubrooms, so that's a lie

Bog of a pitch?? Duno when u were last there - itís far from a bog I can guarantee you that. Yes we also rent up at the skip site as we offer Hurling, Football, lgfa and camogie so we need all the facilities we can get..
and as an ex member of the committee I can guarantee you we were in St Marks for many many meetings.

Last night was a disappointing performance but not a particularly surprising one. The delays in appointing a new manager meant that we started proper pre-season preparations much later than most of the other counties, and it was fairly obvious that Antrim were the fitter and better organised side, with the loss of our Sigerson players also a factor.

The Sigerson runs until the middle of February, so, with the Kilcoo contingent also unlikely to be available before then, and a number of injuries to take into consideration, even James probably has little idea at this stage about our starting line-up for the Derry game on January 29.

The people who are writing off Darren O'Hagan, undoubtedly our best player of the last decade, on the strength of one unexpected appearance as a sub, are certainly drawing premature conclusions. He has had a tough time with injuries, but we will need to see him in some league games before we can make any proper assessment of him.

Nobodyís writing DOH off
All I was saying is we maybe canít always depend on him now to mark a Conor McManus or McCurry and expect him to also add to our attack
He maybe needs to be now used in a different role
Sweeper or something
Laois beat Meath well after themselves getting hammered on Saturday
As I said a lot of people overstating division 2
Down are as good as any team in this division

Good luck to Kilcoo on Sunday, hopefully, we all can get behind them even if you are from Liatriom, The Town, The Ford, Clonduff, or Burren. It will be a great boost to the county to see the magpies as winners again.
BTW Warrenpoint is a fantastic forward-thinking club that has banished the soccer mentality from their town and seems to be pulling the whole area with them. It's a pity the town where we play our home matches does not have the same thinking.
DOH will be ready for the league and he will be one of our best performers, he never lets us down.

Point used to be a soccer town, not anymore.

Soccer Towns/Villages in Down are Newry, Banbridge, Castlewellan, Drumaness, Strangford, Crossgar. If we could change the mentality of these areas to GAA then we as a county would be in a better shape.

All the best to Abbey CBS tonight, hopefully put an end to the quarter final curse that has seen many teams with great players  over the years fail to get over the line. Full confidence in these young guns tonight, just hope they can produce the goods! AAAABBBBEEEYYYYY

Your profile says your club is Ballykinlar, is that right?  Your time would be better spent putting some effort into getting your own senior football team back out onto the pitch.  Definitely a wind-up merchant.
