Aha my mistake.

Whoever 11 was seemed to disappear 2nd half. (If he he was taken off I didn't notice!)

Did he not score the goal, he doubled on it in mid air from the hand pass across? Maybe I am wrong.

To be fair St Johns style leaves them very light up front and any one playing along the half forward line for them rarely spends much time in the attacking half.



Number 11 McCallin set up the first goal and scored the second goal, along with winning frees throughout, impressive from where I was standing

Definitely first half and I think he may have been far side second half and I couldn't see his number as I was getting pretty blinded by the sun.

JJ was Ciaran Johnston not number 11? He was playing in the forwards for at least the first half and causing problems?

I am not sure where he went in the second half.

Both teams should have changed their free taker earlier.

Cushendall have for years now been susceptible to pace running at the centre of their defense. That was again a big issue yesterday and one that could have seen them beat.

Good to see a Belfast team give a good account of themselves again today. Not too far off the pace at the top end of things and room for improvement as a lot of them look young enough.

If i were a st johns fan i'd be sore losing that. Could have won that game. I wouldn't say should have but definitely could have. Was ciaran johnston still on second half? I wasn't sure. Too many free misses both sides late on. St johns will obviously rue them more.

Minor game entertaining. Good comeback by Loughgiel.

Didn't see any scuffle in crowd though something seemed to be going on in Dunloy dugout area late on.

Fair play to creggan. An outside manager diminishes nothing in this at all -utter nonsense and petty begrudging. It's great to see a different club in the final and would be good to see them get over the line though I would still fancy cargin to win it.

Terrible draw. Apparently we would only have an option of a home game depending on the result.(Were we to have a home ground).

There is nothing economic in anything the dup say. Bitter bigots who want to drive every wedge they can between the north and the south. Not one crap could they give about a peace process.

I firmly believe that in bad cases there should be prosecutions. I have seen a few things over the years, one incident in particular stands out, where boys should have got a criminal record for their antics. Unfortunately in our case some in the club tried and some refused to follow this line as the attitude to police in the north wasn't good at the time. This was about 15 years ago so I would hope it has changed mind.

It's the best way to stop it in my view. I am not sure whether southern clubs would pursue this with the gardai or not mind. It's like the law stops before you go into a GAA ground for some people.

I am not talking for 2 guys digging on or off the ball but when you get boys wading in, punching people in the back of the head and doing things like fracturing eye sockets and broken jaws for boys who are doing nothing but trying to break a fight up. Sometimes people suffer from being unable to work off the back of these things too.

Where any lads done by the police when our own Ref was attacked in Ballymena a few years ago? I said it before on here and a gael was against it! Strange one. If you were punched in the side of the head on the street and you knew their names surely you would report it?

Yeah I agree. People have to be held to account for what they do by law if they are breaking it. Just because it's in a GAA ground it doesn't make it any different.

I doubt anyone was done for the ref getting attacked.

If someone goes far enough in a GAA ground to do something which they would be prosecuted for in the street then they should be prosecuted for doing it within a GAA ground.

Down south do many of these make it to the gardai I do wonder? I do think up north there may be an aversion to getting police involved.
There was a case in Dublin where a fella clobbered an opponent with a hurling stick and he was charged with GBH. I think the fella made a full recovery and dropped the charges but he was taken to court anyway. I'll see if I can find it online.

I have a feeling the lack of police involvement could be part of the reason they are worse up north. Apart from one or two you hear of, one in wicklow seemed pretty bad, they generally seem to be worse up north.
