Are there any Aghagallon lads coming through the senior county team? They are one of the upcoming club teams....

3 featured in McKenna Cup, Pat Brannigan, Ruairi McCann and Eunan Walsh.

Are we sticking with the current U14 / U16 arrangements this year then?

I think he means getting out of that group after the poor start, particularly as, on paper, it was probably the hardest group to get out of.

Holloway with an absolute clinic on Saturday night - very impressive

He was great wasn't he?  Would love to see him try 155lb though.   

What about Gunnar opening up Cowboy like a tin of sardines?  Brutal elbow.

it pure madness and ive never heard of anyone doing this before.

the fact that we got an official transfer form from the other club, signed by the relevant people to say all was in order that he was able to play U21 and senior football. we thought nothing off it until someone got suspicious about his age as they weren't sure if he was or wasn't 21 after the first game.

it wasnt till afterwards that we found out that he lied about his DOB and was actually in fact 22 and not 21 that we then notified the county ourselves.

Through absolutely no fault of our club we have been left in a position where we could be fined, deducted points etc. and the young fellas punished over the lies of someone. You assume that an official transfer form is an official document and you take it as gospel but it opens up the question now of how does a club check these things themselves?

Fair play for notifying the County yourselves.

Birth certs or id with club transfers under the age of 21 may be the way to go.

I was 13, sat at the back of the stand behind the dug-outs, brought to the match by a sales rep who my da knew. I was obviously the only ROI fan in the stand.

I nudged him and smiled at the end of the game when I realised Ireland had qualified.  He told me to keep my mouth shut and say nothing until I got home.

Scary enough.

Interested to see what others carry most of the time and why?

I carry my hopes and dreams and about 16p in change.

Both regions need to be performing in order to develop a mutual respect and that needs to be earned. The county needs both regions pulling their weight.

I don't know if it's the social media thing but there definitely seems to be a helluva lot more underage activity, blitz competition, challenge competions, go games  etc and more of a coaching focus across the board than say a decade ago. Anyone else see that or am I imagining it?

No, I don't think you're imagining it.  Our end of year party with our U8's (P1 - P4s) we had something like 80 kids there.  But the best thing about it is the amount of parents willing to help and assist the coaches.

I don't think I had a proper training session until I was U12, but now we have kids coming up still in nappies, all decked out in the club gear.  Long may it continue!

As you move up the age groups, the structured Go Games are a godsend as well.  And the week we're not at Go Games there's normally a tournament or a blitz or friendly happening.  It never quits!
