'Donegal? Why in caps?'

Why not?

Why emphasise where the ref is from?

Would be more inclined to emphasise that he is in actual fact a football ref primarily.

Wasn't at the game but I have to say there is a terrible tendency with hurling referees throughout Ulster to blow for every little contact.

We had a visiting club up from Cork during the Summer and they commented on that a number of times during the games played

Predictions time
Dall by 4
Keady by 2
Dun by 7

I was convinced on keady earlier but think st galls could do it with the experience they have.
Castebkayney no mugs but cushendun are on the crest  of a 5 year wave. So they shouod do it.

Dall in the big one.

No Derry club won it, but they are normally the 33rd team in Derry league wise, the Monaghan teams would be 22nd or so, which would be mid division 2 team in Derry who would do fairly well in a ulster junior championship

Doesn't really work like that.

This slush fund was setup when Margaret Ritchie cut funding to the UDA via "conflict transformation". SF and DUP set this up. Funds dished out by OFMDFM to Paramilitary linked groups.
Another example of both parties lining their pockets and enriching themselves.

"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."

Raymond McCartney is spinning this one that while the process may have been flawed the actual outcomes were good and referencing eight projects in his constituency, I wonder what they were??

I presume Charter NI are in this mix.

No Raymond is Derry City. No charter NI there. They are all available online to view. Most of the projects in Derry went to community groups under SF control.

Another SF/DUP carve up. Money for the boys. wink wink.

I find it amazing anyone from a Nationalist persuasion would vote for SF. They terrorised communities with bullets now they want to do the same with political power.

100%. It has been so blatant in Derry City it wouod make you laugh. Sf basically lining their own pockets.

Wins for both Coleraine and Banagher in Ulster. Good to see. Best of luck to Limavady later today too.
Great win for Banagher but Eoghan Rua seem to have made hard work of it v 14 men in second half.

Wasn't just v 14. We lost two county men to injury and had our full back black carded. Went man for man in second half using keeper as an extra defender. We just ran out of steam.

Very harsh sending off to be fair. Black card also could have been down to soft ground. I'm sure you will be back

2nd yellow was very harsh but the black card was spot on, soft ground might have made him fall but doesn't need to trip with the hand.

Yep fair enough.

The County Board don't give two f**ks about promoting the GAA in the city. They have paid it lip service for years. They should flood the city with coaches, GAA promotion,  you name it.

The clubs in the city are doing okay, some more so than others, but this is an acorn that needs broken...............meanwhile the County Board yet again sits idle while the youth don't play the sport in the city. It is not only looks bad on the city for them not wishing to par-take in our gaelic culture, but casts a huge weight around the County Board's neck for not not bothering their backsides to do something about it.

Yes. Full time coaches is the only solution. Needs to be driven then by club men

The problem in the town is there's a small number of hardcore gaels busting themselves to push, promote and enhance the game. The numbers just aren't there to make big inroads atm. Take 3 of the city teams, Brian Ogs, Dolans and Colmcille, a big percentage of their coaches and committee are blow ins from county Derry or further afield ie dyed in the wool GAA men and woman. There is serious apathy towards the games in this part of the world. There's coaching officers in the primary schools trying their level best to get the kids into football, especially key stage 1. This is really beginning to take off. All the clubs and I include Ardmore who have been struggling badly at senior and underage in recent years and the new Culmore club have very good numbers in nursery, u8 and u10. Just go to any of the local go games, it's a heartwarming sight. Hopefully these numbers continue to grow and the young gaels continue to play up through the grades. This inturn keep the parents involved who join committees, become coaches or volunteer in some shape or form.. Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd. The future is bright in the City imo and that's not something I would have said 5/10 years ago.

Yep agreed. Don't forget Na Magha. Probably biggest club in town after Steelstown. Going to be a force in years to come

Couldn't agree more. I've had my young lad down a few times at the College, hopefully get him back at it again. Met a lot of Na Magha folk recently during a very tough time for the club, great people. Great club

100%.. Get young pup back soon. Cub very very appreciative of all the help received from throughout the county. Onwards and upwards for all clubs hopefully. County and city need each other in both codes in the future
