Pure rubbish. Have a look back over the past 10-12 years and St Colmanís for one fare favourably to any school in terms of final appearances.  Ok the Abbey havenít been achieving what they would want but there is still good work going on.

Good luck to Kilcoo tomorrow, be a great lift to the county team if them boys rejoin the squad with an ulster title at the very least in their pockets! Was encouraging to read Jerome say he hopefully going back to the county panel, be some addition if the 3 Johnson's, Doherty, Morgan, Mc Evoy, Rooney and Ward all joined the panel. Wishful thinking but even 4 or 5 of them would be great.

Is it a given that none of the Brannigans would be interested in playing for Down?

Has it not always been the case that any of the established teams would struggle to get more than 3 players through each year to the senior team.  Is it not the nature of things you have to be a very good minor to make it to the senior teams of Kilcoo, Burren or Clonduff etc ?

Even when Burren had mediocre teams in the early 2000's 80% of the minor teams coming through drifted to seconds/thirds teams and some even just drifted away from football altogether.  I would suggest that is the case throughout the county.

As you say this was a freak under 20 team so I dont think it will be an issue in the Burren club going forward.

On the issue of managing the flow ( if there is an issue ), should it not be on the likes of CPN, Saval or whoever else feels hard done by to do something about it rather than Burren closing its gates or the county board getting involved.  Should it not be up to those clubs to make themselves a more attractive proposition to kids and children.  I know CPN are working on it but their facilities are amongst the worst in the top division and have been for 20 years.

We own St Markís and have two full size halls in there for winter training, a pitch and half all on one site for our underage to avail of. Moygannon pitch is one of the best surfaces in the county and will get better with our new development in the coming years..

How exactly does St Peter's Warrenpoint own a school?

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



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???


Johnny, is this that your attempt to explain how St Peters apparently 'own' their local school? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but just because someone allows you to use their facilities doesn't mean that you actually own them.  Block captals don't help either, boyo.

McCrory cicra 86/87 I think. Defo mind being at the final in lurgan if my not so great memory serves me right. Couldn't have been much later as I would have been beyond giving a single fk by then. Val was sound tbf. Them brothers though. Cnts.

Ray Morgan  Replaced by Cathal Murray - 2 hogans in a row in last ten years.
Pete McGrath

Barney McAleenan Replaced by Sean Featherstone - zero interest in football or after school development of players and his sidekick Gavin Trainor is no better - nerf war all Ireland champions this year I hope.

Pj mageee Replaced by Conor Fegan - making strides in the right direction and at least competing. Iíd say will be in mccrory within 5 years.

Val Kane replaced by Jody Gormley - 1 hogan cup. Replaced by Sean Gallagher/Kevin McKernan - the usual 1/4 final knockout..

Afterthought is completely right Smurfy. Grades are the key for young ones nowadays which is understandable - but manyís the player got the grades and the medals in the past.
