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

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.

So why is it Armageddon to you all? Lol

There's a workshop on Monday night. More like a planning session.

The other side of that argument is that the county is preparing for next year now VOLUNTARILY.

Wind your necks in. Its happening anyway. Might as well be this year.

a couple of facts

- clubs were told at a monthly county meeting in September there would be no change until 2020 when Croke Park were making the changes compulsory
- without further discussion clubs are informed by email on 14th Dec that the county is unilaterally bringing changes it doesn't have to make in 2019
- clubs are asking to register disapproval by 28th Dec

If saying this isn't a good way of treating our clubs make me a balloon then I'm a balloon!

I said it wasn't a good start for the new chairman but that doesn't mean he might not end up being a great chairman

MR2 we are all faceless on this forum that's how forums work

Iím not faceless nor is bandside and a few others here, plenty well known even if they think they ainít!

 Having a pot shot at people is cheap, Iíve been guilty of it to in the past, itís frustrating as a manager or player when things at committee level go against your judgement, but these people put their head on the blocks, they are voted in and we wonít see eye to eye on things but there is a process and should you feel strongly about it, get involved

+1.

I've been guilty of it too and have apologised when wrong but ffs he's only in the job a week and he's getting a hard time on here for carrying out a Croke Park DIRECTIVE.

As Mr said, it's happening anyway. We might as well get the structures on place. I take it you wanted a go at Fťile Belfast GAA man?

I hear the county board are telling the clubs age grade changes are happening without any debate like they did last Christmas. Do they think everyone is asleep at Christmas! Bad start from new chairman

What the hell has that got to do with CiarŠn McCavanagh? It's a Croke Park directive. Every other county in the country will be changing and so because Antrim will be too, you want to bash the chairman whose in the job a week or so?

That's terrible on your behalf.

The U13/15/17 thing makes sense. Kids at 10 and even 11 are too young to be playing competitive games and U13 is about right. I'm fully behind it. I think it might do away with Fťile though which is why I heard that Sarsfields will be opposing it (they must fancy themselves at U14 this year)

Nothing but respect for our SW Gaels who, at horrendous times and during the height of hatred, attacks on Gaels and their facilities were able to pull together and keep going.  If they needed to amalgamate so that they could survive, then they absolutely did the right thing.  Those clubs would arguably not be in the position they are in with the facilities they have worked for benefitting those rural areas but for Sean Stinson's existing.  Many of the products of Stinson's represented our county and are the backbone of their clubs today.  Easy for some wishy washy people to criticise sitting in an ivory tower of sanctuary and not being surrounded by the 'mid-Ulster UVF'.  Our games are flourishing in the South West, which is a testament to the Gaels of that area and long may it continue.

In your statement all 15 are dual players thatís incorrect as Iím pretty sure Daithi McGuigan didnít play hurling for your minors this year.

You're either a 17 year old looking to talk about Bellaghy all the time, a parent of one of the kids or their coach or something. You won the game. Well done. Don't be a bad winner.

Bellaghy are amazing. They beat a good Dunloy team. Bellaghy are class. Dunloy should bow to their superiority. Bellaghy are strong. Dunloy aren't as good as them.

There you go. What you want everyone to say really.

And me from Slaughtneil too?? So Iv no allegiance to any of the 2 sides just merely stating facts Farset. Something a lot of people on here canít!

You know the names of some Dunloy U16s ffs all the way from Slaughtneil (or so you say). That's a bit weird for an adult.

Far a start I went to St Pats in Maghera which the lad I mentioned attends. Your also forgetting that the antrim minor hurling league includes the likes of SNeil , dungiven , Swatragh and screen etc so Iíd know a good few players From antrim under age club teams. Your again presuming Iím an adult? Iím 19. You love to presume Farset

OK but at 19 you are an adult 🤔

You can all moan and cry about St Endas winning the intermediate but it happened so get over it.

If they were beat would anyone have complained that they shouldnít have been in it?

They arenít the first div1 team to do it, in fact it happens most years and they certainly wont be the last.

Will gort na mona play senior championship next year? Iím gona guess no.

Until Antrim align league and championship like in Tyrone then this will keep happening.

I do think we handled the whole u21 situation poorly but circumstances and priorities kept changing after we won each game in Ulster.

Yes it happened and we're allowed to criticise if they are fair game, which they are.

Put it this way, EVERY SINGLE TEAM they beat so far were Div 2 and their opponents from Galway are also a Division 2 team.

Nobody said you broke any rules...

Yes 3 years paid experience part of essential criteria

Told you boys Bellaghy wouldent be a push over. Lorcan Brady and Paul Cassidy hard stooped and Conleth McShane that attacking threat from half back! Dunloy never looked liked even shaping and if it wasnít for a penalty that was scored by a rebound it would of been embarrassing for them. Bellaghy should go on and win it now in fairness but cross will take a stopping too. Dunloy probably weakest side in it.

You sound a bit like a bad winner. You came on here solely to talk about Bellaghy and Dunloy a week or so ago. At least you'll now head off to the Armagh thread (if you haven't already been there).

We'll done Bellaghy Wolfe Tones and hard luck to the proud young men of Dunloy.

I'm surprised NE pulled out of the u21 B. After all they played in B (intermediate) Championship against "legitimate" B standard teams while playing Div 1. Pure arrogance.

 Nail on the head

Intermediate is not a Ďbí championship Iím afraid. Junior is not a Ďcí championship either
?
Youíre gonna have to explain that one to me.

The teams that play in those championships are the clubs senior teams, they are not the clubs b team or c team. You can have a junior Ďbí competition but they must win the junior Ďbí competition to play in the junior competition proper...

All saints this year won Junior Ďbí  and played in a all Ireland Ďchampionshipí which I think is a great idea, but Iím not hung up on a under21 championship unless the competition was played first and the winners then entered the real championship.


If youíve played before then youíll know, you play and want to get on your senior team, regardless of the championship they are in.. you donít strive to get on the b team but this may be the level youíre at (not you personally) and thatís fine.

I get senior is Ďaí and intermediate is Ďbí and so on but I wouldnít be little Rossaís All Ireland win in Ctoke Park, or Cregganís Junior All Ireland
The teams (or at least the vast majority) that play in B competitions at juvenile and indeed the U21B are not the clubsí 2nd teams either. They are their 1st teams playing in the 2nd tier competition.
Intermediate & Junior are not for reserve teams but they are 2nd & 3rd tier competitions. Effectively, Senior is A, Intermediate is B and Junior is C.
I donít see why calling them B & C competitions diminishes the clubsí efforts any more than calling them Intermediate & Junior.

Aye alright.. from now on its 'a' 'b' and 'c' competitions .. will the junior b championship be the 'cb' championship? asking for a friend.

Jeeze tough crowd this week.

Junior B is a D grade competition. It's not that difficult to work out. Maybe it isn't the crowd.

Nobody belittling anyone's All Ireland wins.

But the intermediate is a B championship for those teams not strong enough to play A and likewise with Junior and even Junior B.

You don't have to have a second team to admit you are playing B.

Take Money glass for example. Not strong enough to play Senior so they played at the secondary/B level in the Intermediate. Who beat them?

Yes the team that won it and should have been playing in the A. I'm glad more people can see it for what it is.
