Truth Hurts, I think people mean Kilcoo has a small pick. Its actually a compliment and I for one think what you have done over the last 20 years has been the template for other clubs to follow. Good luck versus the Barrs.
Good luck to Down too, I'm feeling optimistic that we will stay in Div2 and have a decent championship.

I think they have a good pick in comparison to a lot of clubs in the county aided by the fact that they have had a strong club for over 100 years and would be part of the traditional old clubs of Down GAA.

Good luck to the magpies tomorrow, I really hope they can do it. I am looking forward to a few drinks in Dungicen tomorrow and then heading over to watch the new Down play.
Also, can they stop saying that they are a small club because they are not! It's tiresome, they field at every age level and have fielded 3 adult teams for over 20 years. There are clubs in the county struggling to field one team.

I would imagine the Down team will be announced this morning. We need a bit of PR about the game.

South own Sinead Ennis getting hammed for calling Suarez a racist and a tr**p back in the day. Petty but when you are vociferous about Doug Beattie it comes back to bite you.

Surely the county board will decide on 3 down this year and next year. I think it'll be a manic season in Div 1 with any number of potential candidates to go down. It'll be between Castlewellan, Rostrevor, L'Island and Ballyholland or Warrenpoint IMO. Town and Reds have a massive task in front of them but any of the more established teams can be dragged in to the dogfight.

What are the predictions for Saturday's games? I fancy Kilcoo by 2 and Down to get a draw in Owenbeg

Warrenpoint? Last year's leagues winners??

Yep...was a very poor SFC campaign from them and heard they have a number of lads not committing this year...think they could be dragged in to a battle unless there's a number of young lads that are ready to step up...

Who is not committing? I ma not sure they would have great youth coming through as never seem to be in the all-county league

You’re suggesting 2 down and 2 up, with a further playoff between a D1 and D2 club. That makes 3 up, 3 down, and 12 teams in D1 next year again.

—-

Btw when we are aiming for 10 teams in D1, there is not a whole lot of point in finding ways to get the teams in 3rd or 4th in a 12-team D2 an opportunity/playoff to get into D1. Speaking from experience throughout the noughties, when you’re the 15th-16th best team in the county, D1 isn’t your level.

apologies i would like it to go to 11 teams in div 1 in 2023

I think 2 down and 2 up with 3rd last playing the 3rd highest in div 2 for a playoff.
You could do the same the following year and that would be the leagues sorted again. I think this would be the fairest as you won't get the teams at the bottom of the leagues agreeing on it. Teams like The Town, Ballyholland, Rostrevor, Bryansford, and Loughinisland will not vote for it.

How does that system see 3 teams down and 2 teams up?

——

It doesn’t matter if all of D1 votes against it! It’ll still carry as a result of the clubs that are not affected, and the county board block vote.

——

4 teams down in one season is too many. It’s actually a double whammy for as well as being relegated, you’re entering a D2 the following season with 3 other D1 “residents” also looking to go straight back up.

 I could foresee absolute oodles of late postponements, while clubs do what they can to get their best available XV on the field. It would be the year of the contrived Covid breakout on Thursdays.

What system would you prefer?

Will Gilligan step up on manage Kilcoo when Moran leaves or will they go for a new regime? It would be great for Mickey to bow out with the all elusive All-Ireland title.
