A lot of them featured through out the senior championship this year
T

That squad would be comfortable in Divison 3 never mind 4

At least 10 of that that team  would be on the 1st team squad so would not be available for 2nds if playing at the same time

Darren O H officially retires from Down duty

What a player and role model to many

For 5 or 6 years he was brilliant.

A nice debate to have

Would Darren be in Downs top 100 players ever to grace the jersey?

From 1960-2022?


Enjoy retirement Darren
For me Darren was one of the few players in recent memory that probably would start in the 90s teams and and would probably be a good player for even some of the biggest counties as well. He'd definitely start corner back for the dubs 6 in a row team

Catch yourself on he wouldn't get near the Dubs 6 in a row 15,

The NFL D3 fixtures should be officially released shortly but, barring some unexpected review, we are due to be away to Tipperary on the first weekend. Although it's a long journey to a county which has been getting better results than us over recent seasons, we need to target a win if we are serious about promotion.

Away to Tipp and home to Antrim... first two games we really should win comfortably. Panel is set to be cut next week and challenge games have been organised for this side of Christmas including a tasty one v Mayo.
you are awy to louth also
home to offaly and lonford ( i belive)
all home games i understand to be saturday nightgames
I think u will find louth are a Div 2 team

Why do the Red High play in the McLarnon rather than McCrory cup?
They have a large pool of players from some good senior clubs.
They often have multiple county minors & development squad members.

Surely they should be testing themselves against the best in Ulster rather than chasing B grade trophies?

Because they aren't at that standard. If they were, they'd win or at least challenge for it regularly.

They won it two years ago & make the later stages most seasons.

If, however, as you say they aren’t at that standard, then why not given my points above?

I see st Pauls Bessbrook beat St Pats Maghera in Rannafast quarters yesterday. Are there any Down players on the squad?  Fair play to them for testing themselves against the best.

Fair play for testing themselves , if they have a good team they will but if not they stay at B level, a school with their numbers should be A all competitions/ years.

I see CPN are in the Junior Hurling Championship this week aswell, big Fortnight for the Parish. Fair play. Just curious, any dual players on the squad?

I think big Jamie Grant is the only one

Serious question...

If your club had an open management position, would you touch Poacher with a barge pole?

Football is horrendous to watch, and his side-line antics aren't much better.

No, the man only can play one way, has never won anything at club football

Now that the dust has settled, a few points on last night.

Adam Lynch was outstanding on Kerr, McCartan kept Magill fairly quiet too. CPN seemed to get their big match ups right. Couldn’t understand Gerard McGovern picking up Boyle, thought Boyle was magificent too, a real rolls Royce. Young Byrne exceptional for W’Point at breaking lines. Gary McMahon with balls the size of watermelons for the free at the end of normal time and his penalty was not wise.

You can tell Burren thought it was just a matter of turning up and beating the point. Very disappointing Championship for them and Kilcoo will fancy a stroll home now to another SFC. Would’ve been for some craic if Clonduff had made it over the line but The Bridge will be no walk over. Loughinisland Kilcoo final repeat of 2009 final. Championship has come to life this weekend💪

The championship has come alive because no back door,  time it was done away with and u will have more games like this

James McCartan has been talked around into staying with the Down seniors after yesterdays drinking session
A few lads left the training camp early in disgust
When do the County board just say to James get rid of them and bring in younger lads who want to play

What's this about?

No need on the attacks on individuals who have given their lives to the gaa.  We can be constructive without attacks
Attacks and constructive criticism are a waste of time.Until most Clubs get real with the appointment of their own County delegate and Convention attendees the rot will continue.

And what do you want the delegates to do, go in shouting to get rid of managers because that worked out well in the past.

Our present failings are down to funding and which this current crop has had to deal with. The past few years have seen an excellent improvement in the handling of the crippling debt which was placed on the county after the Newcastle debacle.

The officials who are on the county executive are good administrators but I think more delegation needs to take place and trust to be given to other young officials in the county. There are plenty of young brains who would be able to trash out a coaching plan,  an athletic development plan etc the county executive would rubber-stamp it then.

A coaching pathway could be set up by men like Mark McCartan, Mark Doran, Benny Coulter, DJ Morgan, Mark Doran, Ambrose, John Fegan, Steven Poacher, Conor Laverty, Martin Clarke, Ronan McCartan, Joe Tunney, Danny Hughes, aided and supported by Wee Pete and Barney. There are a lot of other good brains that could be added to this but getting these people together would be a start to get the process rolling.

A strength and conditioning plan should be fronted by Aaron Brannigan and Mickey Walh who could then get other coaches on board to develop a long-term goal for
