Aidan McLaughlin as part of a backroom team is hardly an issue. Did anyone have an issue with Gavin McGeehan being involved with last years team? (someone who had a similar coaching role with either Ulster or Derry GAA as far as I know).

Anyone who has seen any of Campbell's teams play before could not be surprised there was no score in their last game until 27 minutes in. It's an absolute joke that he was appointed by our county board to develop our underage players.

I see no problem with someone like Aidy being involved in a fairly minor role in the set up, maybe gathering a bit of experience as he goes. I would though question letting a man who played ultra defensive/negative football at his last 4 jobs (Steelstown, Castledawson, Glentes and Slaughtmanus) with little or no success manage our best underage players.

Cant understand why Campbell was appointed either ....

The other fellas are good coaches with Fabian and Ronan also having had Club management experience.   Aidy McLaughlin (he is from Craigbane isn't he ?) was a very good player and was on  the County Senior panel around about 2010, was unfortunate with injuries and was working away from home a lot.  Good honest committed Clubman and still youngish

Well done to ardmore this week, putting up a good score against Moneymore. Unlucky to Doire Colmcille who only scored a point against the Wolfhounds. Hopefully Joe.ie donít do a report on them like they did to Ardmore.
After only two games, the 3 'city' clubs in Division 3 have a combined score difference of minus 111, just to clarify, that is minus one hundred and eleven points.  Fair play to them for continuing to field.
With regard to Brolly, he is a self-centered, egotistical, arrogant amadŠn who looks down his nose at genuine ordinary GAA folk and thinks it is ok to do so on national tv.  His charm and luck will run out soon, sometimes I fear for his sanity.

Why are the Ďcityí teams in apostrophes punk?
Mainly because some GAA people view Ardmore as a city club, most Ardmore members do not. What do you think yourself punk?

I thought you were going elsewhere with that.

The fact that you brought this demeaning fact to light, still looks like you have a grudge.

For all the people at matches on Wednesday there- how many Black Cards did the referee give. Could have been three in our game but none was given.

One really sad result from tonight was Ardmoreís no score to 6-22 for Limavady.

They have been struggling for a while and hope this is not going to be like this for the rest of the year.

Well done to Swatragh beating Ballinderry.

We drew with vale and probably a fair result. Proper Ďfirst game of the yearí craic.

Brolly is a clown, a well paid one at that. How many Derry National League matches has he seen this year? Ultra defence?!  If we did have a defensive strategy we would still be in Division 3. Glad he mentioned Cahir's article though, since he copied a fair chunk of it! The theory for selling Celtic Park is a dangerous one for Dungiven folk, next for the chop would therefore be An Abhainn Bheag. Enjoyed Joe's donkey reference mainly because of the 1997 Cavan banner - "Brolly is a donkey...."!

The same joke about the donkey was down by thebrounds on Facebook last week too.

You chatting about the Laois tweet.

Stupid from the County Board to say what they did. Nothing to do with them

How many clubs in Derry city?

Must be 6/7 maybe?

Doire Trasna
Doire Colmcille (Are they still going?)
Sean Dolans
Steelstown
Slaughtmanus
Ardmore
Glack
Na Magha (Hurling)




Thatís very sad

Is it really? I'd say I've played against Slaughtmanus and Steelstown and that's about it so my knowledge of the City probably isn't as good as some.

You seem like a clued-in GAA man from your posts, so I thought you would know the lay of the land

As an outsider looking in- The problem that Derry have is the untapped potential they have in the City.
They have almost 100,000 people (mostly nationalist) and thatís huge numbers that they could get players from. (If they really pushed it).
If they were to put serious money into coaching in the city - the schools / primary schools clubs etc - say maybe 10/15 full time coaches just in the city. In 8/10 years time they would have massive rewards - as the potential there is massive.
However there is no desire within the county to do that/ they would prefer to spend money on other things./ complain about Celtic Park and make excuses that itís a soccer town. (Things like that can be changed) -   As a Tyrone man I say long may it continue, but to me itís a pretty obvious solution as it could increase their player pool massively in the future.

An absolute disgrace a few years ago when the county board refused to allow Derry city to make some accommodation to play their games at Celtic Park. They had to play Home managed in Buncrana instead.

Some way to win favour with the soccer supporting masses in the city.

Sam you hit the nail in the head boyo.

Green light what a pile of dung younjust spoke there

As a matter of interest does anyone know how many coaching officers there are in Derry City?

To say that we don't have a good number of coaches going into schools in Derry City is just not true!!

Dolans, Colmcille, Steelstown and Trasna all have a coach with 3 / 4 primary schools they visit, not sure about Ardmore. To the best of my knowledge, there's very little happening in the secondary schools. St. Joes gets a bit of coaching from one of the officers and the Steelstown coach is in St Columbs from time to time.

In my life time, there has never been a desire to promote GAA in the city from the county board.

Read Cahair O Kaneís there, I donít have a clue about the coaching setup so I canít comment. I donít live in Derry anymore.

On another note, Ďbringing the gaa to the peopleí is somewhat bemusing, as the people in the county donít go and watch the county no matter where it is.

He then quotes Ďa recently retired player (God knows who this might be)í who states

ďIf you asked the players in the changing room, 100 per cent of them would say they would not want to be thereĒ.

Some whataboutery right there.
