Disappointing to read about Ogra's situation. As thing go forward small rural clubs like this are going to get it tight. Ballindery and Loup will no doubt be keen to pick up whatever players they can, and the truth is they need to, to continue to help provide Gaa activities to this population.

Bannside, in fairness, you have to be the most optimistic supporter I have ever come across.

Donít want to labour the point, but the man is so far out of his depth. If a man canít see that a forty yard hole needed to be plugged in a minor final in front of Clifford, enough said.

Jez Walt, that's not cheeky, its factually correct. I didn't make it up.

Slaughtneil? Don't have their own parish as such but split over Glen and Granaghan.

Or have I totally misunderstood the half parish concept.
Are they picking from 2 parishes or are there clearly defined areas within each parish?

Pick from two parishes, there camogs are better off, they take players from everywhere, Creggan in Co Antrim and Offaly.

Just seen the Scotstown v Coleraine highlights, it was some kick again from Beggan to win it 5 minutes into injury time. Coleraine must be ruing those missed chances though.

You won't see too many goals better than McCarthy's goal and the second Coleraine one in this years club championship.

an absolute beaut, class. Coleraine blew that game, what a sitter to miss.

Not a fan of the new rules...period. On the kick out, with it being taken from the 20m, it does condense the space to kick to?

Surprised there is no mention of it, but Gweedores third gl was not a penalty, big call by the ref that had a big bearing on the game. It was a fair side to side hit

I see Bobby Farren has been proposed as Chairman opposing the incumbent Brian Smith.
Who is Bobby Farren, club? credentials?

How much it costing Kilcoo to bring these men down such distances! You think there's no teams closer to home to manage!!
How much is Damien McErlain "costing"?

Cost us relegation into division 4. As low a point as we have been since God knows when.

So about a month after announcing proposed rule changes they are already considering changing the proposals!

I can see it now. The ball has to be kicked beyond the 45, no shorts. I can see 5 of the forwards retreating beyond the 45 to deny space and keep their defence tight etc  :o

The April club only thing was short-sighted from the start. For a start, compressing club games into such a short window is gambling with the weather. Clubs should have the odd county-games-free weekend each month from late February til May.

There's nothing much wrong with the GAA fixtures calendar, although there will always be an unavoidable conflict between club and county. It''s funny to see it compared to the utter disaster of the health service.


Seriously? Are you for real?

Yes I'm for real.

Incredulous

Feel free to tell me off, but its fairly depressing looking at the players we have lost ie Glass, Brown and Tohill. Each are physically brutes. Maybe they won't cut the mustard and return bigger and better, but I wouldn't hold my breath, we can't take those loses.

Congratulations to Coleraine, very happy to have seen them win their second title, they have been knocking on the door, and the team that beat Slaughtneil deserved to win it. Lavey have had a bad week, beat in the senior county, minor football and hurling and u16 hurling finals, maybe they donít have it 😜 a softer breed than there predecessors🧐, only kidding 😎
Brennan Iím sure regretting not bring on O Boyle earlier or maybe starting him, big call and got it miserable wrong. Lacey have some useful players but have a bit to go. How do you see Coleraine fairing in the Ulster club, Derry clubs usually do well.
