Derry / Re: Derry Club football and Hurling

Derry welcomes it's newest club.  Culmore Cú Chullains
And does Derry City welcome it as well?

Those with foresight do.

The club does not eat in to Steelstown's player base?
Is the spelling not Cú Chulainn, by the way?
They also seem to have a misspelling on their crest which should read "An Chúil Mhór" not "An Chúil Mhóir".

Not overly sure on spelling. Chu  is genitive of cu. But Cullan is in genitive also. So there is a rule I think where the middle noun remains in the nominative. I think an chuil mhóir is correct. An adjective in the genitive. But not an expert so ....

Anyhow steelstown isn't in Culmore, it's in Shantallow . They take pkayers from every other clubs catchment area within city out as far as Ardmore. They have 1000 members (not playing obviously) and can't accommodate all the players they have at u14-minor. I know they challenged it in papers but don't think many of the grassroots agreed with the view .  Steelstown will continue to grow as they are the most prestigious club in city. They should welcome this as an opportunity to grow football in city. Btw I'm a supporter but not a member of steelstown .
Your honesty on the language is appreciated. "Cú Chulainn" is correct - note one l and nx2. "An Chúil Mhór" is correct, no need for the adjective to be in the genitive case. Anyhow, the genitive is "... na Cúile Móire". Why can a new club not ask for advice re spelling? With regard to players, is Hollybush PS, Culmore, not one of the main feeder schools for Steelstown GAC?  Steelstown is in Shantallow? Well then Ballinderry is in Coagh!

We will be boring folk on here with this stuff but now that we are on the subject here are a few others which I always thought could be incorrect. Should Doire Colmcille not be Doire Cholmcille.? Baile Stíl doesn't look correct either. Would it not be something like Baile an Stialliagh or na Stiallach? I believe it comes from the family surname Steele(planters). Also should their pitch name not be Páirc Bhríde not Páirc Bríd?
Im sure ulster council have someone looking after this, it used to be Donal McAnallen I think.

I think hollybush is a big feeder school for Steelstown but they provide children to other clubs also. Fantastic staff there who are very supportive of GAA.  But it is good bit away from their pitch compared to steelstown and lenamore primaries. Steelstown is a couple 100 metres from shantallow but it's 3 or 4 miles from culmore. Anyhow the point is, there are plenty of wains for both clubs and it would take 10 years at least for this new club to get going well. Steelstown have a full time primary school coach and are well established they shouldn't be worried. They will continue to grow and will be back at senior in near future hopefully

Good result for the lads yesterday always had that bit too much for Bellaghy.

Have no idea what any of the red cards were for and thought 2 of them were actually blacks.

Will need a better performance for next round though we should have put them away much earlier but the result is the main thing. Be interesting to hear tfals views probably the ref or Screen's dirt that won the game for us  ;D

My views Screenexile Too bad teams but championship statistics as they stand
Wolfe Tones 21 Draperstown ONE 😂😂😂😂😂.  You are a disgrace of a club and tad size of your parish.
Another boar fest to endure with you and Coleraine coming up.
We were glad you had no hurling sticks with you and nobody got broken legs.
And just to say Screenexile , we will a championship before you add to your glorious one in a row 😂😂😂

Pig ignorance as usual.

Why are Antrim not good enough in both football and hurling? Does anyone actually know? Massive population but they've been shite in both codes for years and years. Is it the county board? Schools? Clubs? Gaelic games culture? or is it everything?

Fish Suppers and Ulster Scots genes

Anything or anybody that gets young people talking about hurling has to be good.

And that's a fact of life!

Not one easy match ... could go either way

Intermediate championship again going to be the most entertaining and evenly contested cship this year. Great for the neutral. No obvious winners here.

Will the fact that some of these teams have been playing division 3/4 have an impact on them? As an outsider I don't understand all the negative chat about Belfast hurling being on the slide. Rossa, St Endas, St Galls, St Johns, Sarsfields all seem to be strong enough.

I seen pics of yours last week Fear Bun; looked very good. As you say, around our area in Shantallow, Gallaghe and Carnhill; money is tight like- 40 quid is still good value however.

It was great lad. 40 is good value for a lot of people but it excludes loads too.

You have to run an official cup camp before you can organise your own

No you don't. What is it Nazi Germany. We ran our own for 20 quid a child or 30 a family. They got county coaches, an o neills t shirt and catered food brought in.

The point about the babysitting etc proves my point.  Those that are unemployed don't need babysitters but they couldn't pay 40 quid a child.

No doubt cúl camps are well run and great in south Dublin etc but they don't work in estates in Derry City too well.

You can run your own for half the price and invite good coaches in. £40 is too much for most people in certain areas. Might be ok in somel areas but not inner city areas which are much more deprived generally.
