MR2 would be good to see the blueprint so we could all row in behind it but I have to say after a slow start Gaelfast seems to be everywhere atm and really upping their game. Not so long Ago the juvenile Antrim GAA scene finished in Sept for the year but not the case this year - that's my sense of it

Fair play to you for doing it and I hope Gaelfast will provide support.
Don't know if Gaelfast were involved but Greencastle Wolfe Tones recently played a football challenge game for the first time in years I just heard - great to Hear

I wouldn't disagree with you on a hurling only club in Belfast that had a football club nearby for those who wanted to do both. But where does a young lad in south Belfast go to hurl or in Toomebridge.... - one of the great things about GAA is 2 sports to try before settling on 1 in Most cases

Well what do we think of Gaelfast so far?
Looks like it is active in the weak areas/clubs Colin Gaels , Ardoyne Pearses , Lower Falls , Larne and staying away from areas with stronger clubs. Thatís the right approach and looks like itís getting stronger all the Times

Be wasting their time promoting football in a hurling only club
Where does anybody who wants to play football in Larne go then? Maybe Gaelfast could help establish a dual club

are you encouraging football in Cushendall?
I'D be encouraging all codes in all places and would be great to see some clubs/codes emerge in areas not known to be GAA strong. I saw Gaelfast were in Larne recently and thought that was good to see. 10/12 years ago there was no St Brigids and look how strong they are now but they could haven't any hurling so an opportunity there too

Kind of wonder what you are basing this on?
I would have thought the opposite.
Sarsfields, Rossa N Pol etc have teams at all ages and codes,  I think, so they are trying to make more clubs like that rather than go to the strong areas/clubs then you will have more kids playing overall. DO u think they should be in strong areas more?

talking about best ever players is near impossible when comparing era's
Best stab would by decade - for starters

90s - Ciaran O'Neill, Aidan Donnelly, Terry McCrudden, John Rafferty
00s - Kevin Brady, Kevin McGourty,Sean Kelly,
10's - Michael McCann, CJ McGourty,Paddy Cunningam

i still think that Michael McCann is a class act. hes the best player on the ball that Cargin have had this past lot of years.
When I started this I had in mind what the player did for club and county - Paul McErlain,JOE QuinnDOnal Armstrong and Eddie Quinn should be added to my 90s list

Defo feel good factor coming from the most watched championship ever - our PRO made sure everyone got to watch it no matter where they were - top man

Is Gaelfast producing good Vibes too? lots of activity for sure but r any clubs feeling the benefit yet??????

Surely Galefast is working at primary level? I doubt weíll see benefits until that process has run its course and hopefully numbers increase and sustainability resulting in bigger numbers playing our games. Success should be seen as increased numbers, better full time coaches, improved participation from schools. Once those targets are met (if that is their goal) weíll benefit in the long run..

I donít think this is a get rich quick scheme
Definitely not a quick impact scheme but would love to hear some even small results like X club's juvenile membership growing rapidly or a new club being formed on the back of increased numbers but you are right MR2 we will have to be patient in the weeks and months ahead to see such thingS

Cargin committed the cardinal sin in Ulster - conceding two comical goals early on against a well drilled counterattcking team.  Looked to be a few walking wounded from last weeks final also
Michael McCann didn't start - probably best club player in Antrim - massive Blow
