The Newry teams along the coast down into Mourne should be moved to Louth

You may as well come on down to the Maypole if you're going as far as Belfast.
Less Gaa heads and more soccer.
27 GAA clubs in Belfast , more than in either south or East Down but we are all soccer heads.  😂😂😂


Would it not be easier for Bredagh and Carryduff to play in the Antrim League. Logistically it would be easier. You must be sick of driving to the south Down and Mourne clubs.
I had mentioned future amalgamations previously now truth hurts wants us to start getting rid of a few Clubs to neighbouring Counties.Perhaps he should leave the County himself.
  Wee James spoke well in the Irish News today.I would think by the time the Championship comes
round there’ll be much different Senior Panel to one well beaten by Donegal.

Monaghan in first round of Ulster.

Around start of April I believe.

Will be a very tough Division 2 campaign for James & the lads before that.

So there we go, after nearly 5 months with a hand picked committee we end up with a back to the future appointment everyone knew was coming from the first week.

How can the down gaa public accept this? O Rourke is surely one of the most negative and regressive appointments in the history of this county, the Armagh fraternity must be having some laugh at us right now.

Why can people not see through this Queen's old boy network, Chucky Ned and JD now have their men. Big questions have to be asked of Poland, Mc Ardle and Mc Aleenan, why were them men even there?

EOS must have plenty of money to burn but what will be really interesting is to see the rest of the backroom team which hasn't been declared yet, early word is Oaks, Ronan McMahon and Deegan. Long live QUB

So red and black, did you post the same type of comment last year saying ‘long live the Ranch’? Considering Tally, Beattie and McGilly were all members of St Marys University Management team and members of staff? Poland and McArdle both played under James and got to an All Ireland Final when nobody saw down doing so, they could be forgiven for respecting him as a good manager. Down have to build, simple as that. Anyone thinking we should be challenging for honours are just unrealistic. Build now, target to be in div 1 again in 3 years, stay there in 4 and challenge for Ulster from there. Other targets are too far ahead to be talking about yet

Wouldn’t be many dispensed with.

Most of the panel are under 30.
