Hearing that 2 x Lavey Downeys are training regularly with St Brigids (who have been back out for six weeks at least) and that the transfer request is now officially in the hands of St Brigids club. Club members apparently at odds whether or not to accept them is what I've been told.

Heresay....but the source is usually on the money.

Intercounty transfers need to go through the Ulster Council IIRC.

Wonder did Lavey sign off on them as well.



There is no deadline date on intercounty transfers. They are agreed all year ! There is a 10 day turn around once the application is submitted , subject to no objections!

Ah, is there a date deadline for if they are coming over from England and so on?

Not that Im aware off, but you can only make one transfer per year. ie  you can only play in one county championship per calendar year

Suppose you had to be there to hear the ins and outs of it, hard to fathom how Armagh are able to do change back and not decouple an 18 year old from senior football yet we canít find a way. Other counties just seem so much better at everything than us.
Minor is U17 for 2023 so lads in 18th year will be able to.play in adult competitions in 2023, surely

What grades will be played on which days?
Well based on tonight from top table -  minor, reserve and senior are on a Sunday in football and hurling ( hopefully on alternate weeks)

Well I hope all three options were thoroughly debated

I think we all know the answer to that
[/quote]

The Chair & Secretary basically denied the existence of  option 3. Ten minutes later, the Central Council delegate ( think hes Terry Reilly) informed county committee that option 3 was on the table ! Christ Almight ! Think he-'ll be next chair !
Also some confusion about  Reserve Football fixtures being played on a Sunday. You couldnt make it up tbh !!!

Three options on the table;;


National Policy on Club Age Grades
1. Maintain the core club championship age grades nationally at club level as U13/15/17 with decoupling nationally remaining at U17. At least one further age grade (as suits the particular needs of the County) should be organized between U17 and Adult in this circumstance.

2. A county that wishes to organize competitions at even age grades only (12/14/16/18) may do so provided they adopt an internal bye law to decouple at U18 (i.e. in such Counties U18ís would not be permitted to playing Adult competition). At least one further age grade (as suits the particular needs of the County) should be organized between U18 and Adult in this circumstance.

3. Alternatively, a county that wishes to organize competitions at even age grades only (12/14/16/18) may do so, and retain decoupling at 17 with at least one further age grade (as suits the particular needs of the County) being organized between U18 and Adult. Players in their 18th year will only be allowed to play for or train with Adult teams post March 1st and once the signed consent of the player, their parents/guardians and the Club Executive has been provided. The Task Force also recommends that no player should have to play an Adult and U18 game within 60 hours of each other and request County CCCís to adhere to this policy.


In relation to Part 3 of the policy, it is envisaged that permission would be sought on a standard Association form (possibly digitally under the new Foireann system).The form would require to be submitted in the period from March 1st - April 1St and would essentially mean that a plyer in his 18th year would be ineligible for adult competition until post March 1st annually (i.e. until the school games programme is winding down).The form will alert those involved to the risks around burnout/overtraining/overuse injuries for players in their 18th year playing with and training for multiple teams across the Youth and Adult games programmes.
These arenít the options clubs were given

Option 3 wasnt in the options BUT is actually the BEST solution for 2023!

I was reading that Limerick or somewhere isnít going to bother changing as it would take that long drawing up a new fixture list etc. Surely it is too rush now to start that process from next week and have it all set up and ready to go for a few weeks later.

Totally agree! Leave at u17 for 2023 and move to u18 for 2024.
Would be harsh on lads , thinking theyve moved up to senior level to now be told , go back to underage !

Seriously??

I would assume the minor league fixtures will be pushed back a month to give teams time to prepare?

Starting on the 12th of Feb. 11am starts.

Football 6th March  Hurling 26th March - team selection TBC !!!!

Thatís what I was told but Iíd say it was a piss take

What about Co squads for minor. Are they 17 or 18 or is this up for debate also
County squads will continue at odd numbers.
If clubs go with even years, 18 yr old minors will not be able to play adult competitions.
so lads would ve have started training as a senior player but will be relegated to minors, next week  - if clubs go u18 ! A complete farce by CP

Croke Park Ard Chomhairle released change to age grade at 6.20pm on Saturday - no one saw it coming! County officer informed clubs at 1pm today. Clubs to make decision next week. Very difficult for clubs at this stage, decoupling to u17 or u18 to adult competitions is main issue.

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 answerÖ 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 !
