Name the club then if you are already prepared to spread idle gossip on the matter
  If I had wanted to name the Clubs I would have done so 3 or 4 posts ago.Paid help justifying their outrageous weekly wages.

It's common knowledge that the clubs in question were caught training at Milltown and Derryleckagh.
I would find it extraordinary and very hard to believe that clubs had full training sessions at council venues during lockdown.

Thatís because it didnít happen.

One place youíre not going to train is on a field that is just far enough away from a public road to not be able to stop someone taking photos, but just close enough to a public road for any modern camera to identify faces.

Anyway other wobller the problem here isnít that the GAABoard is mighty, or important or even influential. But thereís someone in every club in our county has read this thread now, and has subsequently circulated the question around their own club. And people will stress and promote paranoia as a result.

So itís a Chinese whisper.

Maybe thatís what you wanted, to entertain yourself.

But itís shitty behaviour imho.
   Lotto has the answers

Even worse that one of them was apparently pretending to be their local soccer team when asked what they were at.
Ah go on Lottoóput them all out of their misery.
It is interesting that one of the clubs has kept their walking route around their pitches open which I believe is in contradiction of the Croke Park directive.
Lotto,You are holding onto a lot of info.

Any confirmed instances of this virus having an impact on any club preparations? As in training or friendly matches cancellations?

Personally I am sick of both these power hungry organisations who have no intention of integration. At club level, everything is done on a one club model but at county level they can't liaise with one another. Personally i think its time the GAA start refusing them access to pitches and Croke park. The power had went to their heads!
What has happened for you to come out with this today?

Would anyone have the team and scorers from Saturdays league game in Tullylish? PR for underage football in Down is brutal when you look at likes of Antrim, Tyrone etc

u17s starting lineup:

1. A Murdock
2. F McEvoy
3. P McCarthy
4. O McCrickard
5. C Rogers
6. R Magill
7. W Kelly
8. O Murdock
9. J Howlett
10. J Morgan
11. N Toner
12. O Cunningham
13. J Duggan
14. O Savage
15 Z Murdock

Can't recall all the scorers.

Didn't see much of the u16s so couldn't give you the team.
  Any idea what Clubs they are all from?

JC the two biggest clubs in Down in terms of numbers are Bredagh and Carryduff and by a mile.

What i was tying to get at was that there are clubs in the county not even playing lip service to Scor.

When i look at GAA clubs in the county, the likes of Clonduff and Mayobridge would be strong in providing most aspects of the gaa, Warrenpoint, Kilcoo , Ford, Castlwellan as well, Burren would be a strong football clubs for boys and girls but Scor could improve.

I know Scor could improve but music, dance and song is as much as our heritage as our games and we as the gaa community need to protect and pass on to future generations.

I would also like to see a resurgence of hurling in clubs in the county but numbers might be a problem but clubs should amalgamate so give children the opportunity to play ,

Truth hurts you belong in 1900s , the GAA has moved on from this bullshit.No one cares about those things only a handful of backward folk.The GAA is a modern sports association and is moving on to a tolerant modern era.
No longer being manipulated by extremists .It is a sporting association not some dinosaur.
In time Score will be binned along with Rule 21 and Rule 42.
The people don't want any politics in the new GAA  , they want unionist and nationalist involved together and don't want these dinosaur activities bringing it back to its past.
It is sport and only sport.
In time with guys like Burns at the helm it can get rid of the playing of the Irish anthem and maybe adopt Ireland's Call type song.
I would say most posters on here are of the same view.
Spewtree,head on back to the soccer.

Bredagh run cultural events all the time, Irish language, music events, community events, quiz, etc, etc. There's a night coming up with a talk from Linda Ervine for example.
Fairly sure our neighbours are the same.
Linda Irvine-my God >:( >:(. Who next? Winnie Mandela?  ;D ;D

I was at the East Down Scor final at the weekend and I was shocked to see that 8 clubs never got involved in Scor this year, 6 of which are big div 1 and 2 clubs in East Down.

I would like to remind clubs that the Rule 4 of the GAA's official guide states:

The Association shall actively support the Irish language, traditional Irish dancing, music, song, and other aspects of Irish culture. It shall foster an awareness and love of the national ideals in the people of Ireland, and assist in promoting a community spirit through its clubs.

Scor gets people involved in the GAA who may not be from a sporting background, any club not promoting our  culture are leaving out a lot of people in your communities. Clubs should be proactive in having a cultural/Scor officer to increase participation.

Carryduff and Bredagh have the biggest memberships in the county, come on folks you can do better.

At least they play hurling and also camogie in Bredagh's part, so swings and roundabouts!

JC , share your sentiments re spreading the hurling/camogie gospel but Tbf it is very very hard to start up hurling/camogie from scratch . Providing cultķr/singing/dance/music/drama is relatively easy. I think every club has a responsibility to provide male/female sport and culture if they are to meet the ideals of the association. Scůr isnít for everyone however and the GAA needs to be imaginative regarding promoting culture.

When James Guinness danced through the Longford defence on Saturday night it was like music to my ears. Poetry in motion. How is that for culture>? #Scor(e)
Very good A 60.

What injured players? Harrison
Cork were 9 points up with 4 minutes to go and playing with 13 men.
Some people here need to cut this crap about playing to the final whistle.
What do you expect players to do?
Down have not progressed under PT thatís the bottom line here
  Wee birdie tells me your werenít even in Cork yesterday. >:( ;D ;D

Here is a thought for discussion. Teams in division 4 to be allowed to sanction 3 players from div 1 or 2 clubs who are not on the first 13. These could be something that would benefit a lot of small clubs . Thoughts?

I see Abbey knocked out at the first knockout phase today. What an underachieving school.
  If the players aren't there,what can you expect?

Vilamoura booked, countdown is on. Itís great having a target again. My only problem is sorting out the dogs.
   Recommend anywhere to stay in Vilamoura?

We booked a Villa, but there are 7 going so it works out cheaper, 2 families the kids are adults (well one 17) flights I thought were expensive enough though, but if you can get somewhere near the marina or centre then its best, a friend of mine goes every year, has stayed in the Old Village apartments says its great
