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.

It isn't just me who sees a whole world of problems with this stop start nonsense in a few years time, worn out starters, batteries etc.....
I knock it off before i get to the first junction.

Unbelieveably some batteries actually have to be coded to the car, gone are the days when you could use a set of jump leads and swap batteries so you wouldn't have to input the stereo code that you invariably didn't have.

An absolute nightmare tbh. BMW are the worst offenders along with Merc.

Most battery companies will supply a stop start battery. It must be one of those or it wonít last.

Today i've hit a wall. Just took the wind out of my sails. Went to be bed at Four O Clock but have had to get back up as I was just lying there going to some dark and strange places. Im not a house drinker which is a good thing cause I know if a pub was open today Id been in it all day.

Off work now six weeks generally bored on Sundays but kept a form of structure to my week days as best as possible.  But today looked at a few wee jobs then just locked the shed and said no. Didn't even go for my walk. Suppose I will try again tomorrow.

Keep the head up pal. I hit the wall a few days into lockdown and it was hellish. Keep at it, brighter days will come. Drop me a message if you need a chat. 👍

I think Iíve said before that my own club have used outside managers in the past, due to the fact that we donít have the people within our own club to want to take senior teams. Weíve no end of people wanting to take underage teams but nobody wants to step up to the senior set up.

Who in antrim is paying 20k to their managers?

Very few would be - maybe one or two...

Iíve heard of 2 clubs paying managers huge money to clubs but thatís rumours..

sorry our misinterpreting what i meant.

A sponsor gets what they paid for - exposure and advertising of their business and will get a return for their money

i was meaning that an outside source paying for a manager to take a senior side.

No I meant that an outside sponsor can bank roll clubs to provide better facilities this in turn puts them at a better advantage to the next club. But Iím not against it Iím just showing that there is money in GAA and if they have the means to use it then so be it.

Name me an Antrim club thatís been bankrolled for better facilities?

Sad to hear of the passing of Paddy McIlvenny. An absolute gentleman.

Assuming it involves Antrim clubs PJ.

Biased... but I was on the line in 2009 when PGI beat Creggan by a point. Paul and Brian Mc Iver were preparing Creggan and we nipped them with a majestic Tony Convery point in the last minute of a cliffhanger.

Allowed a couple of answers? The match at the Dub as mentioned above will be hard to had the lot!

But the greatest...St Galls beating Nemo in Portlaoise in the All Ireland Semi. Cork had 9 Cork senior panellists and St Galls held them scoreless from play for 40 minutes.  We wont see a performance like that again from an Antrim club team in my lifetime.

Antrim clubs yeah..
