I'm hearing dunloy played an illegible player against Aghagallon whats happening there?  are they just losing the points and the player gets suspended or will there be further action ? Wouldn't expect that from a club like dunloy more likely for something like that to happen around our parts LOL

theres a lot more to it that we just played an illegal player. i wont go into names but suffice to say they lied about their age to allow themselves to be able to play for the U21's. he had never ever played for us and was a member of another club, not in this county, before transferring to ourselves prior to the U21 championship. transfer form had him the correct age, signed official transfer papers, player themselves confirmed it was correct but unfortunately he lied about it

the club have already notified the county the moment the deceit was found out. hes no longer involved with our club nor probably will ever be after this.

Yeah look it is current hence worth commenting on in my opinion. Yes other clubs have actually succeeded in saving their bacon with this type of motion in the past. Sarsfields immediately spring to mind if I am correct. Certainly there was a recent case but in that case, again if memory serves me correct, leagues were expanded and a few clubs benefited rather than Sarsfields benefiting at the expense of others.

I could and have in the past named plenty teams who wouldn’t take their medicine. That’s not the point.. the county need to put measures in place (as Hardststion as mentioned) to make it fair and just.. proposals can be positive btw

DUNLOY
AGHGALLON
SARSFIELDS
All took the medicine over the past 4 years. It hasn't done them much harm to fair to them

ill have to agree with this. we went to D3 and we fully deserved to be there for the duration until we got our act together and started to move up a bit to a higher league. No complaints or excuses

we beat them in the league over there missing players but to be fair they have lads from other clubs hurl for them and football for other clubs so theres at times a conflict of interests.

we were beat by a better team on the day, no complaints from us.

it doesnt help when you have an U21 football match on tuesday night past and have most of the team in it. Bit of a joke that we are playing that competition now and still have an ulster hurling and ulster football championship to play in. but thats the price of success i suppose.

With championship over for most of our clubs, is there any players that have stood out for you and should be in our new managers (whenever appointed) panel to improve on last year. Or even is there any player that you feel shouldn’t be in the panel

Ive seen alot of our young lads step up this year to the senior ranks from the previous minor teams and they have given me a lot of hope for the future. Much to early for the county for them but def down the line.

Keelan Molloy has been excellent this year for us and could make an impact in the county team if he sticks at it.

Agree about James McNaughton. hes really come to the fore this season and has taken over the main man role now in the go to for scores for Lgeil. Has a good future ahead of him.

ill never understand teams that want the leagues constantly changed every single season just because it doesn't suit them.

theres no doubt that their proposal looks good but their motives leave a lot to be desired. the teams that won promotion should all have that honoured and those relegated this year should stay the same.

Also, we are wasting our time debating leagues, instead of coaching structures etc.

I would rather the same effort went into looking at the underage leagues to made sure they are still being effective at developing youth, rather than political games about senior leagues.

No other county changes / debates changing their leagues as Antrim does

nail on the head!

thats where the time and effort should be put into rather than fannying about changing senior leagues to suit peoples own interests.

funny i had wondered what the outcome of this was. I noticed that both social media pages had it up that each other team had won the league but nothing official had been announced.

PaddyJohn, Dunloy is not a typical club. It probably ticks every box as an ideal club. Almost everyone in the parish is involved in some way in the GAA. Plus it's a dual club, treble including camogie. If we had more clubs like Dunloy Antrim as a county would not be in, or ever would have been in doldrums the way it has been for far too long.

Please don't try to get personal, I put you down for better than that!

Not getting personal at all, please don't think I was. 

I just don't understand how a clubs facilities equate to how passionate its members are. The finance side of things are normally the stumbling block. I know of a club in Tyrone who have a stand which were sponsored by 3 local engineering firms at no cost to the club. How many clubs in Antrim can boast that kinda financial support? No doubt clubs have improved their pitches and grounds, none more so than your own club which is a credit to the members so the passion is there but is there more passion in PG1 than say St Galls who need new changing rooms?

Interesting debate this one as we've been in review of what we need down our way and TBH we need a second pitch fully floodlit but due to the lack of available ground running into our current facilities and a hoor building a house where we might have been able to develop.
That might still happen thanks to the bigotry of our local council who in an attempt to steam roll a Sport NI funded facility meant for all sporting organisations on the peninsula attempted to bypass it's GAA responsibilities and go full hog into a soccer pitch elsewhere. They've been pulled up on that and are now looking at the feasibility of developing a second pitch elsewhere away from the soccer crowd with two sites on offer, one in our parish and another in Portaferry. Either way I'd be happy with access to it even not on our door but close by and shared with ourselves, Portaferry and Ballycran to utilise it better and IMO that is the way forward for clubs not able to have the financial clout to go it alone.
Currently Ballycran are traveling to Belfast and Kilcoo to prepare for the upcoming Ulster final and we've been there too and it's far from ideal.

In the meantime we did build a new gym to a very high standard of gear not only to be used by our players but also the entire community (Monthly DD  8)  ) and that in time will become a revenue stream for us all being well and is bringing new members into the club.
It takes a few enlightened and dedicated members to drive these types of projects through to completion even if financially viable.

was in your facilities earlier this year JC and got a look around them. its some job thats been done to it.

Just need that to translate to the field but it will take time and a huge effort.

was down with our senior camogs to play yours that day in the summer the hurlers were playing Nenagh after it. that seemed to be the general thinking from anyone i chatted to in the club that day was that hopefully it would help to improve the talent already there.

to be fair you have a great set up down there anyway, much the same as Ballycran and Portaferry.

our flood lights are for training only. they are due to be upgraded so they can be used to play matches but thats for another phase down the line.

were currently finishing off the outdoor 4G pitch at the side of the academy which will be flood lit when its done. All down to money of when it all gets finished off.

Double header in Armagh on the 11th. C’Dun & C’Dall

good choice of venue for the games. Its a good drive down to it and theres plenty of covered areas to watch the game.

truth be told its what we would need rather than what we might possible maybe some day have.

i had a feeling that Lgiel might have won on sunday due tho how they beat us and the fight and desire they showed. That didnt materialise on sunday and Cdall just had that bit more to get them the win.

Fully deserved to win it from start to finish. Wasnt a great game to watch but if who win who cares what it looks like.

Just going to say that myself. SS were a serious force back in my day at underage and then on wards with the number of titles that they picked up.
