2 Tyrone clubs eliminated form their perspective Ulster Championships on penalty shootouts. I understand a winner needs to be determined but the penalty route doesnít seem right to me. Iíd sooner see 45s as a GAA alternative maybe just the one nominated kicker one per club.

Portglenone v lamb dearg  had 45s  , a few weeks ago . It was a pile of rubbish  compared to tension penalty kicks would generate !

The NI public finances are bust already. Building a whole new set of schools would be ruinous.

Decrease funding to the CCMS, increase funding to the integrated sector. Same amount of money.

And buy or confiscate the existing building stock?

The significant majority of catholic maintained (CCMS) schools are over 60 years old , falling apart , in desperate need of modernisation , so not worth buying or confiscating ( of the church ,who technical own the land and buildings)

They were subject to years of neglect by the Education Authorities at all levels.

Still donít see how itís fair that U21 teams can transfer players in for a championship campaign
If their own club doesn't field in the competition , the player is able to get a sanction to play elsewhere . Max.no. allowed is 5 afaik

There is only short term security in professional sports in terms of managers and coaches. At some stage , the management team is sacked and new people take over.Thats why they get paid so well.
GAA is going the same way. New manager leads to new backroom members. You have to make your mark and charge accordingly. Even in club football the gravy train keeps moving on.
What would the career span be for coaches /s &c coaches ? 10 - 15 years ?

It's a long enough journey from  airport to Brussels central station but regular connections. ( Not sure of train link ) Got a link bus , cost Ä35 return.
Bruges definitely a one day tour by train
Brussels a busy spot  enough to do and see
Food is not that spectacular
Louvren nice day visit with a great town square  of pubs
Drinking culture is very enjoyable !

Mind that wee Lisburn team. Madden was coaching there teams around that time.

They were a well drilled outfit & beat us in the SW final. Could have been 03/04.


Be interesting to know if any are still playing


They won u12 cup in 2003 and u 14 Shield in 2004
Five from 03 still playing

I remember coaching under 12 years ago(early noughties) and Lisburn were a fantastic team. I wonder did any of them win the junior recently.

Dunloy always produce good footballers. Itís balancing the dual side of it.

There was 9 starters and 6 subs in the Lisburn squad , last weekend , who played under age football  in the 2004 -2010 period.

Tight junior final by the looks of it. Two point win for Lisburn. Fair play to them. Good to see a strengthening GAA presence there.
28 years after last junior win , after two loses in the final , st Patrickís won the JFC, after a hard fought game against Ardoyne, with 14 men for over 50 mins

Shocking intervention. But sure as long as no-one on the teams disagreed  ::) Whats the point of having rules if some lad with an ego can just overwrite them when he feels like it? They all signed up to it, if they need changed (and I'm not a fan of the rule), then there's a process to do that, the same process that set them. Unbelievable to see him striding in to call a halt  :-[
100%.Especially since it was Antrim's own bye laws that created the problem in the first place!

The kicking competition was created by Central Council not Antrim CCC

I thought the rule was a further 2 x 5min period of extra time if it was a draw after first period of extra time?

After the St. Johnís portglenone game, the general consensus was that games should be finished on the day, now people are happy with a 2nd replay on this occasion.

Extra 5 mins each way , after extra time abandoned  last year for 33 m free kicks. 2020 will see a straight forward penalty shoot out from 11m !

If a player receives a red card and a one match ban for the next championship game, but in that next game the opposition concede, does the players ban roll on to the next game?
Yes it rolls over! You canít escape the rules. Another example would be a player sent off in last eligible U 21 game ( over age the next year ) would have ban carried over to next senior game eligible to play in .

Yes. It rolls over to next game ! No escaping the rules. Another example would be a player sent off at end of u21 age group but over age the next year , is banned from senior level match(es)

Once had a parent ask me for the childís membership fee back in the middle of a tournament. I quickly opened the wallet and handed it back and pointed them in the direction of the gate!
f**k you fairly showed them there, great promotion of the primary ethos of the GAA.  ::)

You need to know when to cut your losses. Some arse moaning in yer ear on a weekly basis , needs to know that the club wonít fall apart without them.
