I'd love to see every club get finance or grant aid for their own facilities. But I don't see why East Belfast should be prioritised over the likes of Bredagh.

Like I said it’s more of a start grant rather than a constant flow of cash.. establishing a club requires money, to get that you need members, sponsorship, a pitch (be it own or council) the means to have kits and football hurls and the rest.

Couldn’t imagine it’s an easy undertaking.

Of course Bredagh aren’t on their own in East Belfast area, St Pauls Holywood but again they are more established.

Why anyone would be against Croke spending on new clubs is beyond me

Have St. Paul's in Holywood their own pitch?

How long have they been going?

Is that a middle class area?

St.Pauls is the amalgamation of the old Bangor , N'ards and Holywood clubs in the 1980s but football was played from the 1920s . The ground  the pitch is on belongs to the parish. The clubhouse was built in 2002
There are four feeder primary schools into the club

When will the league playoffs be played does anyone know?

They are planned to take place ,as a reasonable time space after clubs exit championship. ( prob 7 -10 days?)Div2/3 will probably be after IFC QF dates. Div 1/2 would likely be after SFC SF or IFC final , looking at teams involved

Would the issue facing the Belfast clubs be player retention from 18 years onwards? I'd imagine growing up in Belfast theres a good chance you'd head to uni elsewhere? Down south or UK? Not like us culchies who are dying to get up to the big smoke!
That would be a fair point !

On a serious note, St Brigid's look to be getting their act together at juvenile level. Strong at U13,  U15 and U17. Could be a conveyor belt that delivers St Brigid's into a top two or three club in the coming years if they can keep them.

Conveyer belt in fine BS, but has to be end product. Serious questions need asked at senior level at Musgrave Park. Too much talent being wasted or not even given a chance.

Would mostly agree EOC, huge numbers at juvenile. But having watched the senior set up at last number of years I get the impression there is no long term plan. Tried to be bully boys for the first few league games, lol, don’t have the personnel for that, so where to now?
What talent Bs? name one player other than James Loughrey produced that was top class. It’s a numbers game at u12-16 they do well at these ages yes. Their senior team hasn’t made any headway in last 15 years. I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

Conveyer of talent within is great but without the basic ingredient of loyalty and in pursuit of honours for your club/parish such is lost....

Defections to water -,polo has had an impact, big sickener for sure !

Both teams will be training for championship, hardly sitting on their hands doing nothing, I’m guessing week after championship finishes…

If you want to go up or stay up you’ll prepare accordingly, teams might be in better shape…

For the record it would be handier at a midweek neutral venue before championship, but who would have voted on this? Clubs? Are delegates informed at start of year?

Clubs were updated on schedule in mid February.

P/Offs are provisionally scheduled  for 11th or 25th Sept,  but I think , Div 1 / 2 will be pushed back due to championship , Aghagallon & Ballymena would be fancied for QF and/ or Semi but  Glenavy v Antrim likely to take place on 25th Sept.

So one persons view on it.. thanks  ;D

We're you expecting an article joint written by 10 people?

Well if it was plenty of creditable sports journos you’d look at it, but if someone like you who doesn’t even know the rules of GAA says something then I’ll not worry about it..

It was a sporting first for Ireland, take it for what it is. The best team (ranked one) is beaten over 3 games

Nope.

In tbe context of a conversation about the press losing the run of themselves an article describing the tour win as Ireland's best ever sporting result was mentioned. You seemed to disbelieve this and when shown up are complaining it's only one article. You would give anadin a headache

it was hardly Ireland's best ever sporting result

Surely, in the hierarchy of Rugby's Roll of honour- It
Would be
1. World Cup Winners
2. SIX nations - grand slam
3. Triple Crown
4. Test Victory ?

I think if teams concede then points difference can no longer be used and goes to head to head. It isn't but in my opinions conceding should be -1 point.

Davitts are down anyhow, but that puts us on equal points second from bottom with Rasharkin(we have beat them home and away though) but they have better score difference which is why tonight's game might(not sure) been important to us. We only had near full team out last week for first time .

Other years it was head to head, but id say do anything to make it hard for us lol. Rasharkin convinced we stay up without playoff as we beat them twice
Head to Head , if the head to head is tied , it goes to score difference in the games between the teams, then overall scores for , if still tied - a play off game !

You' ll be okay on head to head

Didn't they do away with being able to buy red diesel there a few months ago?

Anyone still able to source some, what price is it at the minute?

Asking for a friend? who is a farmer?

Lol.

Nah just wondering what the price is now that diesel is near £2 a litre.

Its around £1

Can anyone confirm what way relegation is setup this year?

With no relegations last year but still promotions does it mean 2 teams go down this year? Or is there still playoffs with 2nd and 2nd bottom is the leagues?

In Div 1(B) I was told that the bottom team goes down automatically with the second bottom team going into a playoff with the second team in Div2(a), is that not correct?

That is 100% correct

Lads. At the end of the League, if teams are tied on the same points, how does CCC determine who finishes ahead of the other, is it on head to head 1st?

Has to be a red. Wreckless.
goalkeeper didnt have possession so had every right to kick it

Of course he’d every right to go for it.

And he missed it ending up with 2 feet in the keeper. All day long a red

He didn't miss it, he got to the ball and Comerford saved it diving at his feet. It's seen clear as day on the slow mo replay that O'Sé got there and Comerford saved it, what are you watching?

It was a poorly hit penalty but it should have been retaken, Comerford was well off his line , by the time O'Se hit it.

Nothing wrong with the Westmeath goal, you are allowed to play the ball on the ground if you lose balance.

Indeed, we were doubly robbed in the '95 Final!  ;)

Im sure it is in the tackle only !
