HS would know better. i think they are twinbrook? Not aware of underage structures but don't know the belfast underage scene that well.

Poleglass, no real tradition in that relatively young ĎBelfastí outskirts...

Havenít refíd Mitchels in years and canít remember the last juvenile game either, been a while..

Always said there are too many clubs in Belfast, but I get tradition and members and families wanting to keep it going..

How many clubs are there in Belfast?

Lagmore gaels
St Pauls
Lamh Dhearg
St Teresas
Gort Na Mona
St Johns
O 'Ds
St Galls
Laochra Loch lao
St Endas
East Belfast
Eire og
St Aggies
St Brides

Anyone else?

St Endas are SW...  ;)

Casements beat again. Creggan off the mark. Was tempted to go to the Casements game again, but after watching them at the weekend I couldn't see them winning. Decided to watch Cargin and Aghagallon. Cargin have alot of depth in their panel. The players that weren't playing and then the players who went off for injuries. Well over half their championship winning team off from last season and they still won. Aghagallon lively without having any real forward punch, their keeper has a beautiful kickout, is he on the any county squads? But if they couldn't bt them with so many players missing they never will.
Stewards at Ahoghill and Cargin have a lot to answer for if you've been to both grounds involving different clubs. You're allowed one club's ticket to see only that club.

Heís maybe bought tickets for each club or maybe heís a journo?

They don't seem to be in the league this year. I have played against them a few times over the years and there tend to be boys who end up playing who can't even hand to toe the ball. They just struggle to get numbers I think but want to keep the GAA club going there.

Some interesting results last night. Rossa drawing with St Johns a standout one. I thought Creggan might snatch that game too. Cargin looked to struggle a bit with Aghagallon. The usual suspects do look the teams to beat though. I would still imagine cargin are favourites. Intermediate looks interesting. Looks like dunloy, moneyglass, ballymena and st pauls the four front runners for now. Didn't expect Laochra Loch Lao to beat st malachys but the rest of the junior went as expected to. Pearses might be one to watch too.
Rossa actually beat them. Only the Johnniesí umpire couldnít resist a bit of cheating  ;D. Appeared to be one of our referees too!

Is he still a ref?

Spoke to a few PG1 people today, not one complaint about losing. They said they lost to a far better side on the day.

Barry McFall hurling for the Gorts now?
Although Iíd heard that earlier in the year, itís strange to see that alright.

Also I see a Don Whelan hurling for Davitts, is that the same lad who hurled for Cushendun I wonder?

McFall could do some damage at 14 for Gort Na Mona.

Aidan Delargy ahead of Shane McNaughton for me in Cushendall team

Big shout there..

It's mad seeing the 3 of those boys and are they not all brothers too?

I'd have had Aidan Delargy there or thereabouts too.

Hard to argue much with that team DR though you've maybe squeezed a few boys into that full back line lol.Very 90s dominated too lol.

 ;D to be fair Mushy played full back for the 95 and 96 all ireland finals and those seasons but he would of played anywhere to be honest. Malachy and Frankie could swop positions handy enough but yeah all in its very dominated by the 90's squad.

Most of them all played up to the 2000's with Alistair and Gregory picking up their 11th county medal in 2009 so the guts of that team played for most of the games i went to.

Yeah from memory all 3 were brothers.

Danny collapsed and died at a game in Dunloy. I remember at that game when it happened.

Budda was one of the best characters i ever met in GAA circles. he used to land into the pub and dunloy and we would sit and listen to him chat about hurling and laugh at his stories he would go over. He was turned up after Dunloy would win a championship to enjoy the party and the craic a fair few times.

James was a rolls Royce of a defender. so cool and calm on the ball and made it look so easy all the time. Of that 89 team him and Beaver were the players i loved

Danny, Buddha, James, Sean, Brendan & Allister could all of been on a Cushendall panel to a win SHC at a stage I think. Could that be a record in Antrim I wonder?

I wonder if those people from the Dall who have very vocal all weekend about visitors will turn the tide and direct it towards the club?

No end to it -  :-\


After a couple of conversations with Shane McNaughton over the past few weeks, I persuaded him to write down some of his thoughts.

Iím glad I did. Absolutely lovely piece in the news section tomorrow.

Finding beauty in the simple things. Maith thķ @Shanemcn15

Itís actually not that bad of a read.
