What clubs have got Social Clubs that are actually open on a daily basis?
St Galls, O’Dees, Davitts, Gort na Mona, St Paul’s.

Lámh Dhearg, St. John’s, Sarsfields I think are only open a few days a week but I’m not 100% on that.

Probably forgot some too.

St Endas also has a bar... but that’s a SW club  ;D

Damn sures they are.. fine club they also  ;)

So that’s why Belfast GAA man is so angry, he will have to pay full price for a pint now.. 🤷‍♂️
Not really. There are other social clubs he could go to.

But surely it’ll be a GAA club he’ll want to go to..

What clubs have social clubs open?

What’s the aim of the GAA? To promote happy hour? If they can’t do what they are told then fine the said clubs.

Obviously things were not out like that (said email) at the start, and clubs that could open due to having kitchen facilities waiting staff and outside areas, probably felt they they were working within the law... and they were

I completely agree with the chairs view on things and hard to argue against.

The social club is exactly that,  a social hub were members/friends can meet after games to have a pint or two and head home, there’s no real money making going on anymore, not since the ceasefire!

Some exceptions of course, that the club does generate much needed funds.

Any sane thinking person would agree with the chair.
so you and county chair are more medically qualified than the chief medical officerS ? GAA Social clubs provide community hubs for their membership and were breaking no laws

Where did I say I was more qualified than anybody?

Why bring extra risk on to people by opening social clubs etc? If Clubs are that hard up for money then maybe they should think about pulling the pin.

Was such a big thing seeing, and actually playing against that Ballymoney team, think it was played at the school, small enough pitch with barely 15 in attendance.

As you say maintaining this needs to be done from the bottom up and interaction from the schools in at area... otherwise you can’t feed into it and eventually it falls apart..

Like you I genuinely wish them well and I hope they have looked at the structures required to achieve a lasting membership and budding future

Mind playing against them also.

HS would know better. i think they are twinbrook? Not aware of underage structures but don't know the belfast underage scene that well.

Poleglass, no real tradition in that relatively young ‘Belfast’ outskirts...

Haven’t ref’d Mitchels in years and can’t remember the last juvenile game either, been a while..

Always said there are too many clubs in Belfast, but I get tradition and members and families wanting to keep it going..

How many clubs are there in Belfast?

Lagmore gaels
Mitchels
St Pauls
Sarsfields
Rossa
Lamh Dhearg
St Teresas
Gort Na Mona
St Johns
O 'Ds
St Galls
Davits
Laochra Loch lao
St Endas
Pearses
Ardoyne
East Belfast
Eire og
St Aggies
St Brides

Anyone else?

St Endas are SW...  ;)

Casements beat again. Creggan off the mark. Was tempted to go to the Casements game again, but after watching them at the weekend I couldn't see them winning. Decided to watch Cargin and Aghagallon. Cargin have alot of depth in their panel. The players that weren't playing and then the players who went off for injuries. Well over half their championship winning team off from last season and they still won. Aghagallon lively without having any real forward punch, their keeper has a beautiful kickout, is he on the any county squads? But if they couldn't bt them with so many players missing they never will.
Stewards at Ahoghill and Cargin have a lot to answer for if you've been to both grounds involving different clubs. You're allowed one club's ticket to see only that club.

He’s maybe bought tickets for each club or maybe he’s a journo?

They don't seem to be in the league this year. I have played against them a few times over the years and there tend to be boys who end up playing who can't even hand to toe the ball. They just struggle to get numbers I think but want to keep the GAA club going there.

Some interesting results last night. Rossa drawing with St Johns a standout one. I thought Creggan might snatch that game too. Cargin looked to struggle a bit with Aghagallon. The usual suspects do look the teams to beat though. I would still imagine cargin are favourites. Intermediate looks interesting. Looks like dunloy, moneyglass, ballymena and st pauls the four front runners for now. Didn't expect Laochra Loch Lao to beat st malachys but the rest of the junior went as expected to. Pearses might be one to watch too.
Rossa actually beat them. Only the Johnnies’ umpire couldn’t resist a bit of cheating  ;D. Appeared to be one of our referees too!

Is he still a ref?

Spoke to a few PG1 people today, not one complaint about losing. They said they lost to a far better side on the day.
