Some evenings entertainment. Superb 2nd half and 2nd half of extra time when the players showed serious bravery and heart. Good quick footpassing football with the ball sticking with the inside forwards. Young Kearney when introduced was excellent and he shipped some abuse. Downey is a rolls royce of a player. Did not see that result coming after the first half. A serious scalp
A fair few of those Monaghan lads over stepped the mark on numerous occasions.
Huge well done to the players and management team.

Get them all in a room and play the video. Whats the point in sending it to them? God knows 20/30 men will all draw different conclusions from watching the match back.

We used YouTube / unlisted and sent via WhatsApp the evening or day after the game. Allows men to watch and discuss with group, then watch as a group after the next training session when management could focus on certain aspects that need work etc. Great job but fairly time consuming at the same time

Towns that i have been in (or passed through) that I consider shitholes:
Portadown
Newry
Limavady
Coleraine
Newbuildings
Clough
Much of east Belfast
Newtownhamilton

Newry? WTF have you got against Newry?! Nice people, nice town centre, canal towpaths being done up...
Newry is one of these places where every road into and out of it is covered in litter. The canal is stinking! Banbridge is a nicer town.

+1 on limavady,was wondering how long it would take for a mention.
Limavady is an awful town, itís more the sectarian element than anything else. f**kers have nothing better to do than paint roundabouts and put flags on anything that doesnít move!

Have relatives down that direction. Have had many's a good night out in it, but i think the place has suffered badly in recent history with the council rehousing the dregs from the likes of Larne , Antrim etc (Id say a few schillings crossed a few palms ).
Serious pity about the roundabout on the way in from Derry, first impressions and all that. The same p***k (apparently lives a couple of hundred yards down the Magilligan Rd beside it) has painted it again, an awful sight and a pity for the decent folk in the town.

There must have been excitement aplenty today  in the Jim Mcguigan shield final ,Derry  and down went 27mins in the first half before the scoring got opened  (Down won after extra time )

Who is the Derry U17's  management team ?



Fabian Muldoon,Ronan Rocks,Jody Wilson and Aidy McLaughlin


Has a job as one of Chris Collins' puppets doing primary school coaching etc and is now somehow part of the u17 set up. Unreal

Whats 'unreal' about this?
Have a really tough task in their first game against what appears to be a really strong Monaghan team with Banty at the helm.
Is there a back door this year?

Going nowhere with men like that on board

 ::)
I see absolutely no issue with Aidy being part of the u17 setup, a top man who's helped many's a club @ the drop of a hat. What are you doing Toby to help the cause?

Ok sorry, Aidy is the man for the job

that answer was hardly a surprise now

what;s that URL again? HAve you ever got NFL or MLB from them?
shootjerseys.cc
No but if they are as good quality as the soccer jerseys they will be fine.

I see on the website it says handwash only. Have you put them through machine wash? Do they survive OK?

Going to order the wee lad a strip. Great value.

says handwash only, though I accidentally put the boy's home strip through the wash (40 degree quick wash) by accident , no harm done

As you come in country from Ballycastle places like Mosside and Dervock would scare the f**k out ofnyiunif you didnít know what was going on. Horrible places

What's so bad about them? Just curious, don't doubt they're dumps.

lets just say they wouldn't be very accommodating to people who like the Pope. There never has, nor never will be,  a GAA team in Dervock or Mosside

I heard that he had taken the homeless man in.  I was just interested to know how long it was going to be before he told everybody about it.  Same as the giving of the kidney.  People do that every day.  He wrote about it, did about fifteen newspaper and TV interviews about it, and three documentaries.  OK Joe - you have a charitable side.  We all know about it now.  Just leave us alone.

I find lines like this absolutely astounding, lives are being saved, and I'm sure the many people who have benefited (and their family and friends) from the campaigns and the promotion of the campaigns would disagree

He mentions Dublin clubs get Ä20,000 for coaches but doesn't mention they have to come up with the other half of the salary. Mind you if Liam Mellows are not being offered the same deal then that is entirely wrong.

He also says the rate of funding reduction is too slow but that seems entirely naÔve to me as many projects/employees that are being funded by this money could be under threat if funding was reduced too quickly.

I think there is a lot of hysterical hand wringing when it comes to Dublin funding but there's obviously an imbalance that needs to be redressed and I would hope there is a plan to help and support counties outside of Dublin. I'm sure there is as despite what some of the more uninformed posters here like to claim, the people running the GAA are intelligent capable genuine GAA people.

Common sense has spoken. Yes these clubs come up with the other half, they get off their backsides and look for sponsorship and sell lotto tickets. It's not like the exorbitant funding is wasted! Dublin GAA get huge amounts and they spend it wisely. The rest would want to get off their own arses and stop complaining. It's not like Dublin are a special case. They just get a sh1te lot more than the rest of the country. The people running the GAA are intelligent capable genuine financial GAA people.

and your reply is spoken like a man who hasn't a notion how much it takes to run a club ! Have you any idea how much it takes to run even a junior club with underage teams and ladies teams? Huge money and a yearly struggle to stay afloat. Constant ticket, lotto and organizing at least 1 major fund raiser a year.

Imagine the vast majority of clubs outside of Dublin having the luxury to even stump up half the money for a full-time coach, cloud-cuckoo land!.  Would you be involved in running a club?

What? Next you'll be telling us that Dublin playing in Croke Park is an advantage!

touchť! i added a note to the foot of my original post there

One of the main factors for me in us ending up in Div 4 is the amount of players that have been used over the last 5/6 seasons. Each of the last 3 managers have done a clear out and went for youth. Should the current management and county board not have been looking to get experienced men back on board that were out of favour or had left previous panels?

Should Keenan and McFaul not have been kept on to help keep us in Div 3, as if they are around next year it would be more benefit to them to be playing Div 3 than 4.

Should the boys just out of Minor not been kept with the U-20's to keep their progression going and until some have caught up physically.

Those are all obvious mistakes made by the current management. Hopefully they will learn from it next year.

Agree wholeheartedly that mistakes have been made, but why not try to rectify some now (specifically squad members)? We play either Cavan or Donegal at the end of May. Plenty can happen between now and then

How many clubs in Derry city?

Must be 6/7 maybe?

Doire Trasna
Doire Colmcille (Are they still going?)
Sean Dolans
Steelstown
Slaughtmanus
Ardmore
Glack
Na Magha (Hurling)

Doire Trasna - intermediate. (moving to a new pitch in the Waterside in the next year or 2)
Doire Colmcille - junior. going rightly by the looks of it ie finally winning matches! Have moved into a new ground
Sean Dolans - junior, stagnated a bit at senior, new pitch and clubhouse
Steelstown - intermediate. huge numbers
Ardmore - junior, struggling due to low numbers and the age profile of many of their current seniors
Culmore - outskirts of the city. Huge catchment area. Have u8 and u10 teams and have decent numbers. Have participated in their firdt Go games in the last number of weeks.
Na Magha (Hurling)

Glack and Slaughtmanus? Jesus Screen!

Sorry Glack isn't a place I've ever been to just thought it was in that general direction but clearly not!

Surely Slaughtmanus counts as a city Club though it's only just outside?!!

wouldn't be seen as a city team 'Screen, proud culchies the Manus men. Hillbilly, if he's still about would be the man to ask !
