I think the question he asked was there any coached paid. And there have been, don't want to mention the peoples names as I don't think its fair as its common practise now days

None of our coaches are paid to take any teams.  I dont think I made that any clearer.
If a team wants to pay for a strength and conditioning coach or go to the gym to come in at various stages in the year then they can if they sort it out themselves.

We donít pay anyone to coach a team or manage them.

The only ones paid in our club is a strength and conditioning coach in a gym etc. No one that manages any team in any code gets paid in our club.

Iíve a massive respect for the man. He travels to games all over the country and within our county. He covers everything and shares it all to help the promotion of our clubs.

He does a great job and I hope that heís still doing this job for the foreseeable future

Really good to see our minors win today. Game was far easier than I could of ever hoped for.  St Galls just didnít use the wind at all in the second half.

But itís a second title in 3 years for this group and a county Hurling final next week as well.

The senior game I left at half time. What a big pile of cow dung that was to watch.
Congratulations to Dunloy on this achievement -  a proper GAA club with great facilities, great coaches and great players - the winning combination!

It was def a good feeling seeing them lifting the title again. We waited over 30 years to win it last time so to not have to wait so long again was good to see.

I think itís of no coincidence that since the development committees have been set up for all 3 codes within the club and the academy being completed that we have seen the underage success we have enjoyed. The minor winning team from 2016 were the first group to get in there at underage level and the rest have followed behind them.

Of course a Ďbuildingí doesnt Make any success but along with good coaches and organisation and time out into it you see the rewards from it.

This weekend they are in the county Hurling final against lgiel. It would be wonderful to complete the minor double again.

If you look at what happened their hurlers towards the tail end of the season it makes sense. they lost a lot of players to america and other commitments which meant towards the end they were shipping a lot of scores.

They have been relegated in that as well to D2.

As you say its a bit of a surprise considering how good they were at Minor and U21 last season.

If itís not the wind itís the PA system haha. if you seen the clubs Twitter page they are working on PA system .. not too many people saying what a good job the club done yesterday .. always something to gurn about ..

many times on here youll have seen posters compliment Ballycastle on what a great job they do for the county games and championship matches but sadly the PA system is something that needs looking at. We usually hire one in for the likes of a final.

;D

I second that.

Tell us when subs come on, when there's a change to the line up and when the national anthem or a minute's silence is happening!!

haha i was thinking the same myself yesterday. I thought it was a mins silence and not the anthem.

Be nice to hear it as that young girl who sings it deserves to have her talent heard.

i was at the game on saturday and by god it was a boring experience. Ive seen many a poor game this past while but that was the worst. we are devoid of any attacking presence at all in the team yet we persist with playing shane long who doesnt look like he will ever score again. Good at holding the ball up but whats the point when the rest of the team are so far off him.

hearing last night that the minor replay is going to be next sunday before the senior game. The Mageean cup will have to be moved as neither club will be releasing their players for the game.
Its either in Ballycastle or Dunloy from what i was told.

some craic with our game on sat against Moneyglass. Both teams had it as a draw but ref had it as a one point win to Moneyglass. lol it was a pointless game and no one could see how it was anything other than a draw.

disappointed in how we played in the minor match. we didnt seem to get going at all. a lot dropped ball and fumbles at the wrong time against a Lgiel team who looked to be working much harder than we did. They fully deserved a draw right at the death.

Senior game started with a bang from Cdall and then they seemed to slow down and allow St Johns right back into it. St Johns will yet again kick themselves as they looked good for their lead at that point in the game. Good second half for the neutral to watch.

Cdall will need to look for a back up free take as they missed far too many at important parts of the game.

Corrigan.
Lamh Dhearg

St Johns play at Corrigan ffs.. Lamh Dhearg? No chance.

Simple fact is that the venues are outside Belfast due to parking.

Plenty of parking in Lamh Dhearg. Good routes in and out. When they've been tested they've done well. Last few times I've been to Creggan or Ahoghill I've had to park half way up some mucky road and hoof it on foot. Dunloy and Ballycastle good venues indeed tried and tested but hardly fair on St John's to travel two years in a row.

Dunloy is OK but do you not think for a second that there is a duty on the GAA to push a few Belfast's way, you know Ireland's second city where hurling is struggling a bit?

That has to lie with the clubs themselves to enhance and promote the game themselves. The GAA has been putting money into our games for years, granted its not as much as other counties, but that wont change the fortunes of the games themselves.

I follow all the clubs in Antrim on social media as im the PRO for our own club and i see countless examples from clubs in Belfast of the outstanding work thats been done esp in the underage set up. the promotion of the games from each club is brilliant and they give the youth a great platform for which to go forth and become better people. But it needs to keep going if its ever going to get better within the city and that will come from the clubs themselves.

Going to Belfast for the county final was the biggest day in the calendar growing up and we loved nothing more than getting there on county final day and id be more than happy to have them days back again.
