Disappointed to have lost to Dunloy. Thought we were the better team for much of the game. You'd have to question the free count. Dunloy got 14 scorable frees, we got 5. We gave away 3 points from short passing errors and Dunloy had 4 frees moved forward 10 yards and scored them all. Never the less pleased with the display of a lot of our players. Dunloy now very much favorites for the championship having beaten ourselves and loughgiel.

Def, ive my months wages on us now at 4/1 which is behind yourselves and Lgiel in the betting lol

Was a decent game and nice to come to Cdall and win a game. Its been a while since we have won on your ground so its good to get a win at a tough venue.

Fair play to lads playing two games in a row as well on Sat and Sunday

They played a North Antrim hurling match v Carey on Saturday

This isn't All-county though. In South Antrim, these types of games are played by reserve teams.  To be fair, I understand your point that as a dual club, you are punished for being active and organised but I would have to disagree with using a North Antrim game as an argument against it.

Its not is true but the same lads play football as well which badly hampers a dual club. were already without the 3 county hurlers for the football games which again doesn't help but thats the joys of being a dual club.

Its a feast or famine which is the sad thing when it comes to games.

was at our game yday v st bridget's and it was horrible to watch. its most def at times like this you have to wonder who plans the games for clubs and what their logic is. They played a North Antrim hurling match v Carey on Saturday, the football on Sunday and then tonight they have the reserve hurling championship. thats 3 games in 3 days for some of them.

It made ydays game a farce and a waste of time for st bridget's travelling down from Belfast. Its deeply frustrating for any management to be put in the position where your asking fellas to play 3 days in a row.

I just heard what happened to Neil. I hope the lad makes  a full and speedy recovery. Lowest of the lowest of blows. A life ban surely.

Agree completely. utterly shocking stuff for anyone to assault someone like that and leave them needing hospital treatment. Hopefully Neil is back and fully recovered as soon as possible.

Anyone else here think we have a great chance of winning the Joe McDonagh cup. We played at higher level in the league bar all the sides bar Laois who we really should have beaten in the relegation play off. We have 3 home games versus Carlow Laois and Kerry and with players back from injury like Ciaran Clarke who weren't able to take part in much league action. I believe we can do it

they are all tough games and im sure each of the sides we are playing are all thinking they can beat everyone else. Its that well balanced that any of the sides could take it.

Away to meath to start is a tough opener but as you say we have 3 good home games and those are the games that we need to be winning.

Clarky is still injured as far as i was told last night, well that he wasnt training, but he will be a great asset to the panel as hes a quality hurler.

Theres no hurling fixtures now until weds 23rd of May

I thought there was one more round before the break, bit of a joke for the clubs.

I know a lot of the clubs have sorted out some of the fixtures themselves to get games organised without county players. Ourselves and Lgiel have arranged to play each other in June time and i know the Down clubs are keen to play as well.

not a typo. there was an absolute gale force wind blowing down the pitch and it was a total nightmare for both sides. it was 0-07 to 1-00 before we got a penalty to make it 2-00 to 0-07. All Saints scored another point before we scored a final goal in injury time.

A real classic for the ages lol

Watched Loughgiel v Dunloy and enjoyed a good game. I think Dunloy looked sharp. They got the scores a bit handier than Loughgiel and might have won by more on a dry pitch. They are ahead of the rest at the minute.

i didnt think we played as well as we could have to be fair. Still a long way to go to be up to Cdalls standard

a few knocks on either team but none that were too long in terms of stoppage.

He frustrated both sides to be fair but the penalty call was very soft. a shirt pull off the ball and it merited a penalty. both sides were standing bemused as to what was going on and so were the supporters.

I do know that its been used for training for their teams but that boils down to no space for everyone to use. we are lucky in a sense that our main pitch is closed all the time to any training sessions and it keeps it in a decent shape.

tho the rain and bad weather hasnt helped any of the pitches this year so far

It might stop people travelling from Lurgan to St. Colemanís Iím Newry now. Lurgan is a Gaelic mad town and the buzz about the place is unreal. Itíll take years for these lads to realise what they have done. The young ones in our club have some fantastic role models to look up to as well.

Fantastic achievement for the school and your club. it was brilliant to see.
