Brannigan and ward up in front of disciplinary committee tonight.
What is wrong with these Kilcoo players
Absolutely disgusting comments towards Paul Faloon
Disgusting in the highest order
Regardless of the result that has no place in our games
Ah it would make you cross
A one match ban each, I'm hearing. Maybe someone else could confirm.

Bit harsh on Kilcoo above.

It looked unruly but I’d think the same issue registered with everyone at once and they all felt compelled to give their tuppence. If I’m being honest I’d have done the same.

I’d need to go back to the last century to remember only 1 min of injury time in a game, let alone one with water breaks.

Good game though. Point are a very decent side, well balanced and well coached.

There’ll be a few nails bitten tomorrow night when the draw is being made.
last century? And heres me thinking you are only a young pup 😄😄

Again great coverage by Pairc TV, but Kilcoo letting themselves down by trying to attack the ref at the end. Thought the ref had a good game, trying to let the game flow. Still confusion about what is a black/yellow, which penalised Kilcoo tonight and Rostrevor on Friday night. Would still fancy Kilcoo for the championship, but please stop crying at the ref.
hardly a good game, if he is confused about what is black or yellow. To be fair after watching  it I'm confused

Watched the kilcoo/point game on line. Did the ref play the full time?

That is very unfair on the person who got it, I hope he is ok. You are allowed to socialize, but I cannot see the GAA season finishing with all this going on. It is making people feel very uneasy. At the end of the day it is only a game of football or hurling. Is it worth all this? That twice Castlwellan have  had to close, that is an awful lot of pressure on their committee and volunteers.

I get what you’re saying at me being a bit unfair, but if they had symptoms at the time you are supposed to self-isolate not socialise.. Just with the time it takes to have symptoms, book a test and get your results back the probably would have had symptoms at the weekend.

I think it’ll be a domino effect once one club pulls out of league/championship for the year other clubs will follow, just a case of who blinks first.
castlewellan have now fallen to the virus.

Will we be allowed to go to any games at the weekend?
Are clubs going to stop people from attending?
Its not looking likely Downjim.
Its been rumoured that its a second club from Down, lets hope its a negative result for the individual.

I don’t understand the mindset Mourne Red.

The league this year is a series of glorified friendlies and you’re giving off because they’ve been brought forward, thereby limiting the need for your club to organise friendlies.

Meanwhile the championship earns a week of two’s breathing space which means a penalty shoot out might be avoidable.

County board can’t win if you reckon this is an issue.

Injuries - Player Welfar etc... as I said in my original post, yes we’ve all been out running doing our own stuff but it doesn’t replicate what you do in training, less than 3 weeks to train up to league pace then 3 weeks to get into Championship pace.

This doesn’t allow management to get players into right condition and I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an increase in injuries, we’ve had 2 so far from 2 sessions

And from what I’ve heard and I mentioned in my post They’ve also brought championship forward thewobbler so there’s no breathing space

Honestly I think you’re a wee bit caught up in the death-by-training myth espoused by managers. If professional footballers can return to competitive football within a fortnight of training, there is no reason on this earth why GAA players would need longer. Especially for a league with no promotion / relegation.

Regarding muscle injuries, these happen all the time in football. I’d think you’re looking out for them now with some sort of cause and effect scenario being played out, when they literally happen all the time (and I’ve the physio bills to prove it). In my experience, the only training sessions which have a full availability of players starting and finishing the session are those in the week before championship round 1, and those in the week before a championship final.

Hopefully you won't get too many injuries in your challenge match tomorrow morning Wobbler, you don't need more physio bills especially as you aren't covered by GAA insurance to play the game. As club secretary I'm sure you know about this game? Just a short trip up the Dublin road but why the early start?
Just say what you want to say lotto. Share what you have.

Ah I can handle the truth lads.

And it’s the same thing here as it was when I jumped in a few weeks ago.

The only difference between a couple of men staying fit together, half a dozen men working in a group together on their fitness, and full-on senior club training, is how much someone wants to add to the rumour when it arrives with them.

 The curse of the highly paid Coach strikes again and spoken like a true DUP Politician.
My cousin is now a clown.

Ah you see, now you’re putting 2 and 3 together and getting a can of vegetable soup for your breakfast. Your response to me calling this out as Chinese whispers, is to add a highly paid mentor to the mix. I’m looking forward to you naming who this person is.

Ballyholland have not been training in any shape or form, at any grade, in either code, since 12th March.

Is that clear enough for you?

You are absolutely wrong there Wobbler. They have been training in Derryleckagh for a few weeks now, jumping the fence to get in. Some lad pops a knee or breaks an arm they are not covered by the GAA insurance never mind the transmission of the infection which can occur. I admire your strong defiance but I know what is going on, whether you choose to admit it or not.

Lads , so what if there is socially distanced training, any player looking an edge will have been doing it.The fixtures released look good considering the pandemic.For years I have been calling out for a condensed season, just maybe not as condensed as this.
A lot of guys locally are beginning to come round to my way of thinking on this.Championship is going to be real interesting this year and the guys have been on extensive running plans and I imagine in terms of fitness will be ahead of those up the mountains.Those ones win one Ulster and now they are 'Kings of Ulster' they won't reach the final this year.
Have been doing a little social distancing bbqs and all are in agreement they are not representative of us.
"US" ? You mean your bbq friends....just when you think we are getting through this corona virus, the old bullshite virus returns.

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.

That’s because it didn’t happen.

One place you’re 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 isn’t that the GAABoard is mighty, or important or even influential. But there’s 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 it’s a Chinese whisper.

Maybe that’s what you wanted, to entertain yourself.

But it’s shitty behaviour imho.

Craic at work today is that another local club are at as well - any truth Wobbler or is it another Chinese whisper?
Poor Chinese. Getting the blame for everything lately...

Might get parents to go watch matches that they have kids involved in
As I said before Horan went on a solo run which he should not have done
The government give out a road map of return to play July 20
Return to train June 8 whilst keeping social distancing measures
Why he went on a solo nobody knows
Smurfy I Think it's time you got yourself back to the Down Discussion Board and defended that club of yours. It's just been named and shamed.

Not according to 3 lads I know work in CC. It's a fact and the media was contacted about it. Be handy if they actual tell workers they were taking the money of them. Is concrete products a essential trade at the minute. If there's work there,  they must come in. Or the other option is time off on the sick at less than a hundred a week. 10% paid cut to men working over a certain level, The pay cut backed at least a week to the guys I was talking.

I’d have thought concrete products would be essential if serving infrastructure projects - the A6 roadworks are still ongoing less than a mile away from Creagh? They’ll also be required for the major works for the field hospitals - albeit on a reduced scale.

Creagh from their recent accounts run on extremely small bargains - around 3% from memory - they can’t afford to pay this or they won’t be around when we come out the other side of that.

Moreover they’d be so much more clarity if the executive came out and gave a definitive list for closures that can then moved forward to furlough, which employees are assuming they’re able to avail from - this pitting employee’s against employers is horrendous at this time.
This is the legislation drawn up by stormont. Page 13 Part 3 indicates those businesses that can continue to operate ( albeit with restrictions) . Building supplies are among this. Not a bed time read.

Whatever about the response of HQ, the response of local grassroots gaa has been tremendous. Cancelled training before the order, meetings cancelled, lottos cancelled. Offers to the communities vulnerable to help get shopping etc. The grassroots are the glue that holds society together.
Have to agree with you itchy. Our club has been leading the way with help and support for the elderly and vulnerable people in our community at this time.

I have one. Another thing you will need is an appropriate gun cabinet bolted to the wall. Fire arms officer will come out to inspect it before they issue the permit.
That's a very good point.  The firearms dealer should help with application (should you need it) and advice on the storage

Sorry. Miss read your post. Clearly you are.
Here is a link
I don't find it user friendly but this is the way it is done these days. Have a good read through before lodging as they will refuse the application and you have to then reapply.  Hope this helps.
