11 or 12 steps allowed for the man who delivered the ball in for what I presume was St Marys third goal.

Hate that fecking 'easy easy easy' chant

It was like a soccer match the whole way through with the chanting.

I can understand the idea of amalgamations taking part in "A" Ulster Colleges competitions if you want to try and help ensure that as many good players as possible in those age groups played at the highest level in the colleges sector - though you'd want to ensure that a fair limit is imposed on the size and catchment of such amalgamations to ensure single-school teams can still compete well e.g. amalgamations limited to no more than four post-primary schools with a combined male enrolment total of no more than about 1200 students. It sounds similar to the set up of the Kerry County Championship where Senior club teams and divisional teams made up from Intermediate, Junior & Novice clubs play against each other.

Any Craic, good work. I could use a bit of help here. What are the following competitions?

Danske Bank Corn na nOg Cup
McCormick Cup
Rannafast Cup
Casement Cup
Mageean Cup

Don't forget to say if they're hurling or football.  I want to add them to that wikipedia page I mentioned elsewhere, the list of GAA competitions. In each case, who competes, when does it run, and who is the cup named after?  (Casement is obvious enough).

Thanks.

Open to correction but;

Corn na nOg - schools football 3rd year.
Ranafast - schools football 5th year.
McCormick - schools football 7th year. McCrory warm-up competition.

Is Mageean the hurling equivalent of the McCrory?

When you say schools, is that secondary schools?

It those schools that are affiliated with the Ulster Colleges GAA Council. Just to expand, Corn na nÓg is the "A" Competition for U14.5 football teams in Ulster, Rannafast Cup is the "A" Competition for U16.5 football teams, the Mageean Cup I'm 99% certain is the "A" competition for U18.5 hurling teams with the Casement Cup being the "B" competition in the same age group. There are nominally three grades of competition at each age group - for example while the MacRory Cup is the "A" Competition for U18.5 football teams, the "B" competition is the MacLaron Cup while the "C" competition is the Nolan Cup.

The McCormick Cup is a cup played within the confines of the MacRory Cup group stage - the top two teams after the group stages of the MacRory cup is completed play for the McCormick Cup. Normally it is played for between the two group winners, but on occasions where there has been only one group the top two teams played for the trophy.

St Pats Maghera got 3 footballers and 1 Hurler. Connor Carville (CHB), James Kearney (MF) and Stephen O'Hara (FF) in the football and Gerald Bradley in the Hurling.
