Tragic. A terrible week for the family.  Some small consolation that the body has now been recovered. Suaimhneas Síoraí.

Great win for the U 20s on Sunday. Serious questions though around the work of the disciplinary committees as to how players who were clearly guilty of the charge for which they were being considered ended up walking off free men - how did this happen?
Agree.  Some of their antics on Sunday were out of order as well.

We're in a county where the board do nothing over fist fights in games that spill over into the stands. There's no room for anybody to accuse any other county of anything.

It's the way the game's going, and it's not a good direction.
Were you at the U20 final?

The police wouldn't ask you that.
So the answer is no, then?

The great 1993 Derry team was honoured in Clones on Sunday, 25 years on. Brolly didn't go. Integrity at its best.
Don't recall Brolly playing in that game, he might have come on as a late sub but I can't even recall that.

Steven Mulvenna and Brian McCormick played for Derry.

Brolly and Seamus Downey came into the Derry team for the semi-final against Dublin having played little or no part up that.

Apart from missing the point, a memory check for you.  Brolly was the second of three subs Derry used. Both others, Dermot McNicholl and Karl Diamond, had the integrity to be there.

To wave at Donegal and Fermanagh supporters  ::)

Maybe you were not aware but Derry won the inaugural Dónall Ó Murchú cup on Sunday and Brolly missed that as well.

I think a lot of Derry supporters missed it but sure if it's an opportunity to have a go at Brolly. I remember Frank McGuigan missed Clones anniversary celebration of 1984 Ulster final that he was the star of... no-one was bothered bout it.
Given your very recent memory lapses .... some may take your defence of Brolly's absence with eleven pinches of Ard Bó salt!

Don't see any big deal with Brolly or Frank or anyone else miss that.
But for money Brolly would have been there - no show like a Joe show!  Great chance to blow a few kisses missed! Did send his daughter thou. Hope she gets doing the All Ireland one as well, sur!

Unfortunately was not able to go to Derry's historic U20 Ulster final victory today.All of these players and both their current and previous management teams deserve heartiest congratulations  for the latest success for this talented and dedicated group of players.Would like to know, from those who were at the game today, which players  have the potential to develop into above average  to excellent Senior County  players? Doire Abu.
A good question!  For me, Conor McCluskey, Pádraig McGrogan, Shea Downey and Lorcán McWilliams. With more maturity maybe Ben McCarron.  I also rate highly Conleth McShane. However it was a real panel effort on Sunday and do not want to take away from the victory. On the day, both Cassidys were in top form also.

We are getting away from Derry's shortcomings,  but this whole modern stuff with cynical play has gotten out of hand. All top level sport has an element of 'cynical play'. Successful teams are not angels. Our only all-Ireland winning team had their share, anyone who thinks differently is in la-la land. Off the ball holding, third man tackes, taking out the runner. These type of things actually used to be worse.
Name them.

Not going to personalize things with our 93 team, but you can't be serious! Look at our current all-Ireland champs. What did all their players do when Rock scored the last point?
As I mentioned earlier,  this is distracting from a symbolic year that our senior football team had. No point in blaming those big bad cynical Kildare men. Carlow seemed to handle them.
Knew you were full of shite about 93.

Greg Blaney must have hit himself off the ball in the marshes! Niall Cahalane must have knocked his own teeth out in the final. Grow up and learn how to watch.
And you are still full of shite trying to discredit our 93 team. Grow a pair and name them.
Don't be silly. We had masters of cynicism on that team and everyone who watched football in that generation new them. We laughed when they played for Derry and we yelled and screamed at them when they played for their clubs because we knew what they were at.
Go ahead big balls and name them. Or are you another bluffer?

Look back at my posts since yesterday's game. Nothing to do with discrediting 93 team. I pointed out that all winners play on the edge, and then some. This was in reference to some crying about 'cycinicle' Kildare. I have no real problem with this, it's reality. We need to stop papering over our senior teams inadequacies with lame excuses. You seem to want to avoid our failings by petty point scoring with me. Maybe that's your thing.   ;)

Btw congrats to all involved in the U20s. Great job!
Typical mouth who can't back up his shite talk and who defends "cycinicle" (new one for me!?) play to win.

On a more positive note for the future, Deegan had no bother giving out the red today, compared to Coldrick's performance yesterday.  Players gave their all against Kildare and definitely restored pride in the jersey. Good crowd support as well which is encouraging moving forward. Fair play to Rodgers, great club and county man.  Don't let the moaners pull and drag us down.
