There are enough adequate club grounds in Belfast and the non-city clubs that have proved in past years they can successfully host double headers. This bulls*&^t about having to hand over gate receipts to clubs for the use is just crap. A small nominal fee should be issued to clubs and County board pocket the rest. Is this all just down to sheer appalling management, or am I missing something here?

The fact that the county board invested heavily in the facilities at Corrigan Park only for St Johns club to refuse the county access last year was ridiculous!

Why did they refuse?

On a different topic, the Irish News really has gradually turned into a woeful newspaper. For example Com Cavanagh's column today, some of the most boring drivel you are ever likely to read.

You can hardly blame the whole family.

the game is at Dunsilly Randy. No games beforehand because that's not what the county board do.... There's a game at 1 if you want to hang about.

Tickets: https://t.co/kCgstLdGE1

Apart from a final between two well supported clubs there isn't much to be made in any other championship game by clubs. Dunsilly is now an impressive venue, don't blame Antrim for wanting to host games there now.
Impressive? Really?  Perhaps adding somewhere for people to actually sit down to watch a game might be a start.....

Not sure if you noticed but Casement closed in 2012 along with anywhere to sit down and watch a game in Antrim. Corrigan is there now with a stand (couldn't tell you what is going on with the politics of that and why games aren't there), but I standby what I said Dunsilly is a good venue to watch a game, very few games in Antrim need a bigger venue.

Thanks for the info about Casement - I wasn't aware.  Any venue without a seat isn't good enough imho - perhaps that will change in time.

You may register your complaint about not getting a seat with the people who decided to close Casement. Just stating Dunsilly as a ground is adequate for any Antrim club game. With improvements still to be made on toilets changing rooms etc
