Fair to say we all hope this works for Belfast/Antrim
However 200k a year with 60k going to the overall manager leaves 140k a year. No doubt pitch hire and equipment will be required. This doesn't leave a lot for coaches does it?
While this is welcome it feels a bit like a Croke showing they are doing something as much as anything

Did Paul Donnelly of St Pauls get this Regeneration managerial role?

Yes indeed and good initial article in Irish News and has a really good CV.
I remember when Gaelfast was announced there was talk of a gauntlet being thrown down to the clubs and I'm glad he put that right in the article that there were no gauntlets to be thrown down to anyone but rather the clubs are to be supported. Looking forward to more of his plan in tomorrow's edition - Adh Mor Paul

anyone else get cross when driving by Casement? Any word of a timeline for starting work? I fear not

While residents have rights what about the kids who are missing out on playing their games in a quality setting? Should we mobilise kids from each club to peacefully protest outside casement highlighting their right to play is being hampered and then up to Stormont to protest to the Civil servants up there?

The loss of Casement is not just about a county ground but a ground in which lots of kids matches have been played over the years

If it is a fruitless protest you want, you might consider having it at the door of those responsible for the clusterfuck. Market St, Armagh.

It might some day but there is absolutely nothing that you or I or any GAA member can do about it.
As I said though, why not protest about the balls Ulster GAA have made of it? Why do they get off so lightly in this?
