Christ on a bike can the County Board call their guard dog back in

The man asked a simple question

For some reason every year these posts come up!!

If you are a member of your club, speak to your club Sec. They will have all the information you need on the fixtures... They normally send out on initial list for the clubs Sec's to see if it interferes with any club dates that are fixed for other things, once they are ok'd then the fixtures are sorted.

They are not made public until then, any issues on getting the fixtures out (in my experience) is down to the clubs sorting out their own needs

I gave him a simple answer… like I said any clubman would know this

No fixtures available at the minute.
Fixture dates are agreed first ( start of Feb )
Actual fixtures were released  on 3rd week of Feb in 2022.!

The new Centra petrol station on curr road layout is crazy. No right turning lane for traffic going towards Omagh is shocking. Just short off a blind corner . Pure madness, accident black spot in the making !

What’s the employer contribution (the tax payer) for teacher pensions in the 6 counties ? 4/5 times the employee contribution ?

Employees 7.5 to 11% based on income
Employers  23.68% !

I sat in a meeting where a former Education chief say we be saving £16 million a year when EA formed, fired out thousand plus maybe more staff on early good packages as their jobs didn't exist any more  Run the service into the ground by hiring no staff for nearly 10yrs. Then turned round and hired thousands (yip thousands of staff) including the jobs supposed defunct. Now there more top staff than ever, people in jobs above their capabilites. Just now a big corporate animal, costing more money than the previous library boards. I used to do alot of work, do am bogged down in never ending paperwork , previously not there, to give people jobs. So if you put the same remit to the health service and paid more tax, is that going to improve the service, No!! Somebody needs to look at it that hasn't a vested interest in how it's run. Sure they just ignored the report on recommendations 10yrs ago. Until people here have more priorities than a united ireland one hand, staying in the UK on the other, people give our MLA a free pass.

The EA is a total shambles.

What's the story with the Dunloy player playing for Antrim yesterday a fortnight before the club final?  Was he just needing game time ?

He’s been playing for a London club since last year and living over there. He’s moved home and I’d say he’s transferred back. Probably won’t be joining club panel to this final is over.

He would be ineligible to play for Dunloy in this Championship.


Would it be a GAA stronghold around  there by any chance?
Would it be St Brigids territory from Balmoral to Stockmans lane?
That would be the edge of their parish, although, parish boundaries- dont stop them from acquiring from other clubs !

What exactly did Ronnie do in the South Korea game? I thought he was decent against Uruguay, and I didn’t get to see the south Korea game as I was watching the Ghana- Uruguay drama unfold. It worked out well in the end but what was the justification for dropping him?

He huffed after being taken off !

That U15 one is an odd one. What prompted that and why specifically under 15 only?? Are the lower ages unlimited subs??

Some clubs have bigger squads and wanted to give every lad a run out.   I can appreciate their viewpoint but hammers smaller clubs again.

Anything of note come out of the county convention?

Was there any motions that got passed or some put on hold?

Hopefully (for the Derry wans) the motion of banning flukey goals was passed  ;D

League restructuring in football is being re considered. Whether this is for 2023 or 2024 is unclear. Ccc /CB made no motions / recommendations as to their preferred options so clubs will re convene in Jan  and probably a decision by Feb.!

U15 All County Leagues to have unlimited subs !

Well done Stewartstown. A pre Christmas trip to England to look forward to now for the quarter final. I think they had to do that trip back in 2004 as well.

Thanks it was some game! I believe we play Glasgow Gaels in Glasgow in 2 weeks time.
Thats a link to their All Britain FInal v St Brendans Manchester

Is there another way of seeing this game? as it has mysteriously vanished.

It was on Lancashire GAA Facebook page. Looks like they have taken it down.  They might still have a copy if you ask nicely

It was very poor quality coverage and  football was poor enough
