Who are we talking here - McManus, Magill, Griffin? I imagine McManus has a few years in him yet. Not sure on the other two though graffin has had a very hard time with injuries.

Carson would be early 30s I think. He hasn't been featuring as much in a while which is a big reason Cushendall not competing as much I think.

I think Graffin lives down there yeah.

Carson is an airline pilot so it wouldn’t really be a great occupation for any sort of GAA participation

Folks I've just heard this evening that a well respected underage coach in North Antrim has stepped down from taking his club's U15 team due to a complaint being made to the club chairperson by a parent about their child being substituted.   Maybe there is more to it but it sounds disappointing from the parents point of view.  Almost like sour grapes.

Who actually listens to a parent? This has to be a joke?
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Executives exactly.  From what I've heard,  the parent in question is a committee member within the club.  And I'm lead to believe that this parent has been trying to interfere with this coach's work throughout the year.  So maybe the coach in question has simply had enough of this and doesn't feel supported by the club's executive.

I'd say there are a few parents who would be hard to work with.

Especially the ones who would stand behind the wire and wouldn't lift a cone.  They'd be the most vocal if wee Jimmy doesn't get a start in an underage tournament.
