Fear, I’m surprised at many of your comments there.

The one about not wanting to be from Shanty is disgusting.

Tickle that's strong language.  If I hadn't a thicker skin and knew that yiu are a good lad I'd nearly be offended. All i intimated was that the club would rather be in Culmore so they could take from that area more freely. Without looking back at my comments I can't remember saying anything offensive. I stand by the veracity of all I said.  There shouldn't be anything in there that would be surprising as they are all facts in the common knowledge of city folk. My own club has closer links to your club than any other. Btw you could lists dozens of things that could be changed in my club and I'd hazard a guess to say I'd agree with you.
Tickle is 100% correct.  No point trying to pull back now. The board knows exactly what you were intimating, as does Tickle.

The board? Sounds scary. Lmfao. Tickle can speak for himself Mr Ballyarnett.  Bit like I'm from High Park not creggan.  That's a city joke. Tickle will get it. You won't.

A squad of 45 named in the new minor squad. Very noticeable the amount from South Derry on it-33 from South Derry,12 from North Derry. This squad has been picked by a Donegal man and a Tyrone man so no biased opinions this time

No surprise in that, south derry has always been where the football strong hold is in the county, your stating the obvious, however I fully take your point that it has been selected by a Donegal man.
Why does it matter where in Derry they are from? So long as the best players are picked I couldn't care less if they are from Bellaghy or Magilligan.
I was just stating the facts. It was very obvious and really stood out to me.

Take a look at the grading of teams from u14 to senior. More South Derry than North Derry teams in Divison 1 at every age group. Meaning the teams from South Derry are the stronger teams, because they have the better player and obviously if we are picking a panel of the best players their is going to be more from South Derry?

it's the exact same in the senior panel announced this morning.
Having read this post,isn't it ironic that the county training facility is in in North Derry and our County pitch is in Derry city. It makes you wonder. They invest so much money in the city yet all we have as a county to show for it so far is Neil Forester.
I'm not from the city but that's a negative post. There is some good work going on in the city and coaching at underage level in the city clubs has improved greatly. 3 city players on the minor squad just announced. There is a great opportunity to improve our Derry teams through the city and it is only beginning to be realised in my opinion.

45 is a ridiculous number. Even with the change to u17 there are far too many 2001s in there. Paddy Campbell will look after his own. The county is bending over backwards to push his club on.
Ye what? Pushing his club so much that they allow another club to form in the same catchment area? Please stop talking cac.

I take it you dint know city too well. Steelstown is in shantallow(although they'd like not to be). Culmore is not in shantallow. Anyhow sure they suck the poor wee Ardmores of this world to death whether by design or otherwise. How many steelstown players pass clubs closer to them?. They have 35 of a panel at most ages and don't make many subs. It only deprives lads an opportunity. Plenty to go around. They let? Wise up its not a nazi state we run. I speaketh no Cac good sir.
More cac. If anything, Steelstown is in Ballyarnett, just below the village of Steelstown. Many of their players are from the Culmore area and Hollybush PS is one of their feeder schools. Ask Paddy the next time you see him. Some of your rant above is not only inaccurate but ridiculous. Jealousy maybe, as Steelstown is one of the best run clubs in the city.

Fear is correct. Steelstown is in Shantallow, Steelstown Village and Ballyarnett are very small areas in the edge of Shantallow. Steelstown has a huge catchment area, all the Greater Shantallow area, Gallaigh, Carn Hill, Skeoge etc which are now being more tapped into with Culmore coming on the scene. It's a win win for greater Shantallow and Culmore in a footballing sense. Steelstown are a super club, but there's a lot of players not getting game time because of huge numbers.
You are correct in saying Hollybush is a feeder school, but that will inevitably change when the new Culmore pitch (due to be based not far for the primary school on the grounds of the new Culmore Park) opens in the coming years. I've a clatter of nieces and nephews who go to Hollybush, all play underage, but none for Steelstown, as is the way in the Derry City and its surrounding areas ie no parish boundaries. Culmore is a parish, and most gaels in the area wish them nothing but the best.

Definitely a win win.  A confident club should welcome Culmore . Any person with foresight and strategic insight would know that this would strengthen everyone in the long run. Rising tide lifts all ships.

Ballyarnett or Steelstown aren't in Culmore either.
The pitch is 100 yards from Shanty Estate through the tunnel to Old School Lane and Liscloon/Carranbane Walk . Its less than that to Cornshell/Earhart. Why would I ask Paddy i'm a born and bred Shanty man. Paddy is from Glenswilly and lives in Waterside lol! Sweet Jesus. Steelstown are one of the best clubs in county never mind city, but they should be as they take their players from all around the city and beyond unlike the smaller clubs. I didn't at any time say they aren't a good club. All I said is that the county are keen to see them succeed as they will never win another All Ireland unless they grow these areas.

For your information also the story in the Derry News/Journal from Steelstown about their efforts to stop Culmore went down very very badly amongst the vast majority of people in the city. As for the school thing, its the kettle and the pot!

See Paddy Campbell appointed as u-17 manager.
Hope he will not subject young players the puke football he has subjected the 3 club teams to managed.
F Muldoon and R Rocks were v good forwards, hopefully they will have a big say.

When he managed Slaughtmanus it was soul destroying for the players. It was at least 13 men behind the ball and no kick passing allowed. I remember him subbing a player who was having a good game for kick passing (and that's no lie). A disgraceful decision by the County Board to put this type of coach in charge of our best underage talent.

Ridiculous. Should have been kicked out of the club after that decision

Good see a Slaughtmanus man getting ejected from the game for kicking a ball rather than kicking somebody.

The main concern that I have about the u17 thing is the fact that there are 180 lads invited to trials. A lot of them are u15/16

Hard luck na magha,slow start them the game ,1-04 to no score after 15 minutes although got it to within two points at the break.4 or 5 score able chances missed also.grant moving up the field in second half improved their fire power, scoring a goal and the pass which got the free for the 3rd goal.gave it everything they had.ref didn't do them any favours,, couldn't buy a free.

Was a great advert for junior hurling. Seriously good game.  Some heart from na magha to come back. Ref was brutal.  Setanta scorEd 12 frees. At least 7 of them very soft

Fair dues also to the Derry hurlers who picked up All Star awards in their own category.

Yep great achievement for them.  Quality is there

Paddy Power have Sarsfields priced up at 1/2 against Lavey who are 7/4. Surely far too short a price. I actually thought Lavey would have been slight favourites

I'll have some of that thanks very much

Kerry were outstanding on the day, everything seemed to work for them.  Despite the scoreline they still left 2 or 3 goal opportunities behind them.  If the game was played another 10 times, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kerry won all 10.
With 11mins played Derry had the momentum after score 3points on the bounce to leave a single point between the sides.
10mins later and there is 11 points between the sides.  Clifford’s second goal where he had 2/3 men hanging off him yet still managed to score a goal.  The third goal.. Clifford was being forced away from the goals by good defence, but still he managed to pick out the runner and it was game over.
Derry could have played more defensively, they could’ve had 5 sweepers, they could have double marked Clifford.  All it would have done was kept the scoreline down.  We still wouldn’t have won it.  And the comments would be about Derry ruining the game and having a go at the tactics.
The thing that stood out for me was the speed of the Kerry players. There was a couple of things that stood out.  One of the Kerry players soloing up the pitch was moving away from the defender trying to chase him.  When it happened the other way around, the Derry players were easily caught.  On the 4th goal from the other Clifford, his run was being tracked even though he was going at a decent pace, but then he quicken for 5/10yrds to completely destroy his man.

Regardless of the result.  In the last 3 years Derry have won 2 Ulster minor titles and played in an All Ireland final.  Which for a county like Derry is a decent return. 
On the Coleraine lads, would you rather the chance of winning a prestigious All-Ireland Club title or an Intermediate county title?
On the exiles, anyone who wants to play for Derry should be given the opportunity to impress the new management.

It was actually junior. I don't blame the lads for playing in the sevens. Because they won Ulster junior two years ago they were unable to progress to Ulster junior this year. The final against na magha was pointless. Win or lose na magha would progress to Ulster. If it was an intermediate or senior championship match the boys most definitely would have played.

All the best to na magha lavey and slaughtneil in Ulster.

If you were one of those young lads not in the  elite athletic group in Coleraine surely you would feel badly let down though.  At the end of the day The Kilmacuds is a 7s competition for clubs who have been knocked out of their own championships and want a piss up in Dublin.  Don't think they would have been there had screen not beat them.

The dates for championship were set months ago. If eoghan rua wanted to play intermediate they shouldn't have finished last in the league.

I can't speak for all the lads who played but I know most of them would not have seen that as a championship final. It was seen more of a punishment for coming last in the league-  a system which unfortunately for eoghan rua does not favour a dual club with a very small selection of players to choose from and who struggle to field while football is still ongoing.

Eoghan rua are in an unfavourable position for the next few years in hurling. They have nothing to play for. Surely this system needs rethought?

60% of hurlers in Derry are dual. I dont understand the comment about eoghan rua having nothing to aim for. Surely they could win Derry and Ulster intermediate ?

Sarsfields were a joy to watch, played some fantastic hurling and on a better dryer surface can only play better. Surely they will go on and win Ulster.
Can't see them being beat in Ulster, they link up so well and really know how to play to their strengths. Always exiting to watch, I hope the senior final is a better spectacle than last year anyway, it being the main event an' all.

Lavey will be no push overs
