Well itís two div1 teams in the final at Croker, so that should persuade the begrudgers to support St Endaís  ;)

100%. Two teams who used the system to get where they are. Couldn't care who wins the final. Both teams should never have been in it.

I can't see any team in Div 1 this year entering the Intermediate and that's the way it should be.

What can I say apart from that it was men against boys.  Or dare I say seniors against intermediates.

The gulf was massive.  Surely you all can see that?

but the team that they beat in Ulster final (Mullahoran) are in truth a Div1 side (one of the most successful senior clubs in Cavan). 

In saying that the leagues should be aligned with Championship and that will remove such issues.

I've heard that argument before about them beating Mullahoran and how much pedigree they have. One. They were a Div 2 team but even if they were at senior standard, all that happened was that two senior teams played against each other and the Antrim senior team won. That proves nothing other than that St Enda's are a capable side.

Your second point is making the point that I have been making all along in that they shouldn't have been in the championship being a Div 1 team.

So to say that the criticism is harsh but agree that championships should be aligned with leagues is a bit contradictory don't you think?

Anyway I'll scuttle off now and stop being a naysayer.

What club are you from Farset?

Farset is on the Springfield rd.. so I'm guessing either the Johnnies or Gorts  8)

The same farset River that flows into the Lagan at High Street after flowing through much of Belfast. Good one, Columbo. 😂

Look ill not post again about it but St Enda's heads are buried in the sand and they are pretending here and they all know it. Whatever they achieve will be a hallow victory. You know it and I know and they know know it.

When Ahoghill won the Junior All Ireland, Shamrocks won theirs as well as St Galls won theirs I was a proud Antrim man. I was at Galls two all Ireland finals cheering them on and was also there for Loughiels and Rossas wearing my Antrim colours.

Any time Antrim clubs went out into Ulster and beyond I supported their teams because they were men playing at their level giving it their all. I have nothibg personal against St Enda's people. I know quite a few but their decision to play Intermediate was disengenous. Remember the ONLY club from Div 1 to do so at the expense of Div 2 clubs.

If they win and they should it won't be any significant achievement in my eyes in stark contrast to St Galls footballers was to them or Loughiels was to them or even when St Galls intermediate hurlers getting beaten that time with a certain wee tiny guy as their manager. The difference is that they were all playing according to their Division. Nothing subjective about it at all. Just facts.

Ignore it. Call me a negative begrudger. Say I have an agenda if you want. I don't. I'm just pointing out facts that many people agree with. I hope that the teams who didn't play the system for some hallow victory wins at the weekend and that is the Galway men but they'll be up against it playing against a senior team. It's about fairness and sportmanlike behaviour.

Broken record or not... The point still stands that they chose to play in a championship below. No amount of feel good factor or name calling will change that.

They play another team from Division two at the weekend. They should win it.

Whether or Gorts or Moneyglass (or whoever would have went on to win the Intermediate) would have fallen at the first hurdle is simply subjective and besides the point. St Enda's were the only Division 1 club in the championship lol.

If say Gorts or Moneyglass (choosing these clubs because they were beaten by St Enda's) had have won the county intermediate and been beaten in the first round or the final, then they would be able to look back at it proudly as a club genuinely at that level. The same cannot be said of the men from Glengormely who were playing at a level above EVERYONE to date. That's just a fact, whether the rules allowed them to or not. I'm glad the new rules will address that.

Farset away climb back underneath that rock you came out from under. 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈


Glad that divisions will determine your championship. Feel for the Gorts and I suppose everyone else St Enda's beat because being a Div 1 team they robbed the genuine Div 2 clubs of the chance to win their championship but this year a new year and hopefully lessons learned.

Good luck to St Enda's at the weekend though. They should win being a Div 1 team against a Div 2 side. 👀

What is factually untrue about what I wrote? Or do you just want to insult people who you disagree with.

St Enda's have played Division 2 teams in every single fixture they have played in the championship to date. They play a division 2 club at the weekend too. All facts.

We aren't a strong football county??

I think you are confusion club football with County football. Using your logic Tyrone and Donegal teams should be winning Senior, Intermediate and Junior every year.

St Galls over the years and this year arguably Cargin have proved that our clubs are strong or certainly comparable with some of the highest standards.

Every single team that St Enda's have beaten in this championship have been Division 2. That's just a fact. Spideal are too so yes they should win it.

must say on another note i was disappoint in the Brigids line and management constantly calling for a black card in the second half to get a player out of the game.

they were pissed at the ref black carding two of their players in the first half so felt the need to constantly harass the ref to try and get him to get our players out of the game. at the end up the black card and red card we did get were totally deserved at the end of the game and down to frustration.

it was very poor imo.

It's frustrating and the ugly part of our games.  While you mightn't like it, there will have been loads of supporters and people on the Dunloy line in the past calling out refereeing decisions including black cards.  One of those things that you have to just take on the chin and know that you are better than that.

I am flabbergasted that there is already opposition to something that is 100% coming in in the first place.  Why not introduce it and plan for it ASAP?

Before the creation of St Brigid's what clubs would the players from their catchment area have went to?

Oxford and Cambridge boat clubs.

It's good. It raises the age in which kids play competitively from 12 to 13. Less pressure. More fun.

I take it you donít coach any U10ís or 12ís or been to any of the blitzes or tournaments.?

This age change will make zero difference.

Maybe I should've clarified what I meant a bit better.  I meant that kids will not be taking part in any formal divisional board or county run competitions.  If individual clubs run competitive tournaments then of course people will be competitive and as MR said, overly competitive to the point where it's stupid.  If coaches and parents can't hold themselves back at those competitions, then that isn't the fault of the county board.  The county imo making formal competition starting at 13 is a good thing.  If clubs, coaches and paretns choose to be OVERLY competitive below that then that in my opinion that's wrong.  You can't take competitiveness out of kids but you can control the arena in which they play.

Already training for next year??

Nothing underhand about it. It was touted from summer time and then county received communication from Croke Park and are planning for it. That's it. Get over yourselves and stop creating problems where there are none.

They aren't last minute changes lol. It's still 2018 you absolute cry babies.
