Limerick are going to be tough to beat, especially away (think that is away?). But if we end the league with only one defeat we will go up. Head to head win over Wexford night come into play. Huge game coming up v Carlow at home. It appears they aren’t the team they were two seasons ago, a repeat of performance against Wexford could see us home in Carlow game.

There are some 50 year olds who lined out last season and are a few years off a heart attack yet!

I wasn't there yesterday, so fair play to Bannside and anyone else who made the journey. Its been a while since I was at an away league game, Wicklow in fact, when we last got promotion.

I listened to the Ocean FM commentary - love those unashamedly one sided commentaries and fair play to Ocean FM - and I thought that it was sounding like we were in for a draw which would have been fine by me. This isn't a disaster though, a win in London looks entirely within reach and then its all attention on the home game v Carlow, which becomes a must win. If we end up with 6 points after 4 games promotion will be in our own hands.

Heads up all round, and it is important too that a decent crowd turn up late Feb for the Carlow game.

A very encouraging performance. Agree that Paddy Gallagher was terrific throughout, I would say nearly everyone posted strong performances today. Obviously McCann with left his mark his goals, I’d still like to see us feeding him more 50/50 balls, I think he would do well against most teams in this division in that scenario. Ricky was great too, full back line looks solid. Our third goal was started with a turnover from James McCauley, he played v well, Conor Murray did too...lots did.

In some ways the day me longed to Paddy C. Pure class and not just from frees.

Be interesting to see how Wexford get on, some fine individual players for sure and Ben Brosnan kicked a couple of great points. But they are lacking something...

Good days work. Felt good to watch it and well done Glenavy, well stewarded and well set up.

"I fail to see why Cunningham was invited back"

"His free taking is outstanding"

These two sentiments are a mere dozen words apart.

neither CJ nor Kevin stayed for long enough periods to make this list - by the way, a very interesting diversion on a discussion board! - James Loughrey one of the best and wouldn't it be great to have seen him playing even longer too. Tony Scullion is in that space where quality meets longevity, Mick McCann definitely on the shortlist. He was at the top of his game in successive promotions in 09 and 2010. Kevin O'B...Justin Crozier, Kevin Niblock, Paddy Cunningham, Tomas as well and those last two back on board.

Looking further back, Lenny was one of our best flair players, Donal Armstrong when we won the B championship, Aidan Donnelly, Mackers, Whitey with his overhead point!

This really is a talking point for an evening over a few pints.....

Yes, certainly seems to be a willingness among more players to get on board, which is just brilliant to see. Div 4 will be tough, games v Sligo, Wexford and Carlow will decide it. Imagine even half the crowd who turned out for championship final coming to those games? It would be a massive boost for the players.

Hopefully more good news to come, thinking of KOBO for example, recovered from injury and such a brilliant county player...

Between Cargin being awarded a free and actually taking it there was a full 2 mins, thats just one play. Thought the time added on at end of normal time and ET was correct. The Cargin ones beside us screaming 'cheat!' at the ref were hilarious. I asked them for one example of what he got wrong and they clammed up.

An epic battle today, expect Cargin gang to be on soon enough giving out about the referee - their abuse from the crowd was in turn hilarious and pretty obscene. That was a very hard match to ref and he got the big calls spot on. Fair play to both sides, both contributed hugely to a very dramatic final. Some of the scores today were outrageous. Some championship.

Not sure where to start with tbh.

1 The club is called St Brigids / Naomh Brid. Not St Brids

2. ‘odds on favourites’ - with who? I’m not a gambler but where there odds available for this game? I doubt it. Certainly no one in Naomh Brid was certain of success against a very good Cargin team. Hopeful yes, but thats different.

3. “West Belfast clubs are envious of St Brids massive success at juvenile level over past 10 years” -but didn’t you just say the club hasn’t had success? So what massive success are you talking about?

4. ‘extensive financial resources’ - what evidence or relevance is this? Do you imagine the U12’s are getting paid in haribos or something?

5. ‘A lot of clubs have not been fielding juvenile teams due to falling numbers while St Brids have had 2 teams in juvenile leagues @10/12/14’

Apart from the fact that there is no U10 league, being able to field two teams in most age grades is purely down to volunteerism, hard work and maximising the playing pool. All good things surely?

6. “Despite the large player numbers and good support they seem to suffer stage fright at the business end of juvenile level” - come on pick a side, is it stage fright at the business end of juvenile level, or is it ‘massive juvenile success?’ It can't be both.

Not running down the lads but losing Minor finals has been a bad habit for your club. Hence the choke remark, just stating the facts
Brendan

Yeah lost two in 21 year history 🙄, does that constitute a habit?
