A new Derry senior management and no Derry men in the management team. 1 from Donegal 2 from Tyrone.These decisions are being made from a highly paid Tyrone man. It isn't funny any more

Braveheart I donít think weíre in a position to complain as someone could describe us as a mercenary club, with Enda McGinley taking our football seniors and Conor Gillian taking our senior Camogie.
There are very few clubs who haven't someone in a paid role. Slaughtneil have a fellow from Tyrone training them. Maghera have a fellow from Kilcoo. Bellaghy have a fellow in. Lavey have a fellow from Tyrone. Draperstown have Baker. Magherafelt have Cush. Dungiven have Fat Mick. Banagher have men in. Other than Ballinderry I don't think many clubs are free from paying for something

Can't understand how Paddy Downey still gets jobs,a mercenary
Be Careful now. He's a blue through and through. He's up there with the Cassidy brothers. He is doing it for the love of the game.

Are Quigan relegated to junior football?

Yes - but I think will play in the intermediate championship next year.
Gaelic football is extremely odd ATM. From being in an Intermediate final to dropping to junior football in 1 season. Kilrea dropped to the intermediate league last year and Dungiven have dropped to intermediate this year.

What was the attendance tonight?
4500 I saw in Twitter, shows what the people of Derry think of league football when it matters
Yes. There would have been less in Celtic park. A good junior championship game between 2 Derry city team's at Celtic park would almost get double figures paying at the gate. South derry is the heartland and always will be. Next year at senior football the only real north Derry team playing senior football will be Claudy. Coleraine will also play but really Coleraine are outsiders to both south and north derry.

It's obvious the South Derry clubs are putting a lot of effort into closing the gap after the North Derry championship clean sweep last year. The hard work of south derry gaels like yourself should be commended.


We need to lay off braveheart  He's probably one of those super Gaels that sums up what the GAA is all about. Celebrating in the glory of the neighboring club and running around following them about. He might be even one of those who wanted to jump ship and join the neighbors in the true spirit of the GAA. Could even be a member of the local angry daddies group.
It is a sore point for me. Celtic park is a white Elephant. Great pitch,good facilities but in the wrong end of the county. Even Owenbeg understands that now. And for that reason 90% of the senior championship games this year will be played in owenbeg.

Duno what you're getting at Braveheart. Great crowd surely, think 4,000 might be a bit generous.

Slaughtneil though, they looked back to their best, it's hard at this stage to see who will stop them winning the championship.
I'm only stating the obvious. Very big crowd watched slaughtneil back to their best. Glen will be disappointed and maybe Derry finest is correct in saying the 3 townie clubs will always come up short.

The amount of shite talked there was fantastic
All factual,other than the Coleraine issue but they are an enigma. They don't want to be part of anywhere apart from portstewart.

What have you to say now Braveheart. If thatís what you think will get you to the top, you will soon find out that it takes more that brute force and ignorance to win the boy with the big ears.
Bully boy tactics never won anything. You have no history and less class.
Shock, Horror. The Swa' beat the mighty tones. The blues are coming(just not this year). No-one knows when but supposedly they're coming.  Imagine us having the Audacity to beat Bellaghy. But as for Bully boy tactics I disagree. Maybe when you're talking about  bully boy tactics you should talk about Declan Brown

I'm hearing news this morning that a former Ballinderry great ran On the pitch on Tuesday evening and pushed an opposition u14 player during a championship game. Shameful if true.

The first evening of league action for soooooo long. This needs to change. We had a predictable win. Draperstown started well but when we settled down we took control and looked comfortable. Artie's 4 lad probably the best on the pitch. On another note,Tiernan Walsh is a quality defender but didn't play for Derry u20s.  More questions!

For years,despite evidence to he contrary,I have always looked upon a brighter  future for all Derry football teams.As my friend "BRAVEHEART" SO ACCURATELY SAYS OUR 2019  U2O TEAM WAS TO BE OUR GREAT WHITE  HOPE!!

INDEED THEIR PERFORMANCE AGAINST Mayo in last year's All Ireland semi final seemed to add substance to that opinion.Now teams which we beat at minor level,including players who performed really well against Mayo last year are trounced at u20 level this year.

Where are the great u20 players whom we were told were ready to make the step up to the Senior County team?It seems to me that the gap between Derry and Tyrone is getting wider and wider.That is not progress in my opinion.

As a consequence of being liable to be called up to the Trades Description Commission I hereby resign my Derry Optimist portfolio and apply instead for the moniker Derry Pessimist! If any one can give me any credible explanation for this pathetic turn of events I would be delighted to hear from them ad then maybe,just maybe,I will reconsider my position.Otherwise I will only be looking forward to meeting St Peter at the pearly gates!
Sad time's. Minor level means very little. I am a huge believer that you don't need the best teams to succeed. Having the best management's in place is much more important. We,in Derry,falter at this fence


So a management team that won Ulster last year ran Mayo close and lost in a final this year are a failure ? Some people are hard to please or have maybe some connection to a former manager who won nothing and had a good cry to the newspapers. Derry had a number of players injured for this or carrying injuries. Some doom and gloom merchants about.  We do need to look at how lads our developed for senior and the injuries especially hamstrings need to be questioned in terms of what's being done.  We have lost a couple of players to Australia from from our underage who definitely could have had an impact at senior and maybe in other counties the incentives would have been there to stay.
Granted. A good response. Imo a few of this group could easily have made the transition to the senior team this year but it looks like they were held back so that they could win another Ulster u20. The amount of hamstring injuries coming out of the crazy training sessions was worrying,my own clubmen included.
