the reserve leagues a bit light this year i see. At a time when we want to give young lads games after they leave minor theres going to be periods of nothing for them at all. Pity to see that.

Is the North Antrim league running this year? i think South Antrim are running Hurling this year, maybe some SA teams playing in it instead as its a Monday night and means lads that dont get a run in the senior game or only 10-15 mins can then play a full reserve game on the monday night.

North Antrim league runs every year. Usually a competitive enough competition yo.

The Z'ds do well, and for years the south antrim league ran pretty well. When  the Johnnies Rossa ourselves Sarsfields st pauls and the rest join in its a very good South Antrim leauge.

There were a catalogue of events that has made this happen, but fundamentally, not ensuring that people are queued correctly and safely is one major factor.

No poster on here was actually at it, second hand evidence isnít to be trusted. So while everyone has a view Iíd wait until the HSE and police come up with some facts before giving a balanced view on it.
Agreed. However your point about queuing correctly applies across the board which is why I am reluctant to criticise the owner. Like Iíve said previously, a tragedy like this could happen at any venue in the country on any big night. Hopefully changes in attitudes to queuing systems are brougt in across the board in the aftermath of this.

It is, Iíve tried not to talk about this tragedy, but right across every event that will attract hundreds or thousands to an event must be seen to follow the procedures and adhere to the risk assessments that would have required for any job that involves a risk.

But the police and other authorities will view this particular one as a breach of H&S, no intent of course and no one would wish these incidents on any one. But too ever learn from these mistakes there has to be a fall guy.

I posted earlier there was a lot of responsibility across the board, and as a collective there was some failings. This ended with kids being crushed to death.

Itís not so much fake ID, they get friends who are 18 and borrow their real ID providing there is a likeness, and as far as bouncers are concerned they have checked and job done..

Itís not like the states, I was 21 and had to show my ID to the same barman and off-licence every night!

Messi on fire tonight.  His hat trick goal was just ridiculous.

The free kick was probably the "worst" of the four Barca goals.

Fantastic article here on Messi. And his latest hat-trick.

Iím sure Klopp has a plan for Messi

Forgetting about the horrible tragedy in Cookstown for a moment

People/parents/kids and owners of such venues all have a responsibility to look after people

Letting your child out knowing youíve bought them booze, arranged photo ID and knowing fine well they were going to an over age disco is wrong legally never mind morally. Iíve done it and was allowed to do it when I was that age, now, thankfully me and my friends came back from such nights out with nothing more than a sore head, and in relation to my two daughters that was fine also, the eldest daughter is now over the age but Iíve put it to my youngest that such things wonít be happening again

Owning a venue thatís taking a booking for a school disco has to stopped (if this was the case) underage kids will go regardless and as an owner of such venue you are leaving yourself wide open.

Venues should all have queueing system, and if thatís in the health and safety risk assessment then it has to be adhered to.

Buses allowing drink to be taken on their bus is also an issue, a lot harder to work out but it happens

Kids drinking on the streets outside a venue can be fixed, if the police had have been informed of that behaviour
Drink culture? Monkey sees monkey does, we are all responsible

There are a host of reasons that can lead to a disaster, very rarely will it be one single point. But very often it will be the owner whoíll take the fall as the law will go after them as public opinion can be a factor.

I hope that from this there will a huge change in how everyone goes about their thinking as there a chain of events which has resulted in three young talented lives. Hopefully no one should have to go through something like that again.

And the point scoring shite on this page is disgusting

I underestimated Ballyhale, watched a few of their games, and they were good without being great, but they showed when it mattered! Thomasís were poor enough

Hes a caretaker manager doing a brilliant job, Iíd give him the job based on current form, but the nagging doubt of experience must be the only factor from the board to go with it!

I donít see other contenders really jumping out, other than the wolves manager (whoís been superb) for Utd to go for
