Derry promoted to division 3,and not one mention on here,forby Glenman93 that is.not even from the pessimists who are quick to bash Derry.well,for wat it's worth,well done Derry,the stint in division 4 was short lived.will be great to be back in croke park again.lets hope we get promoted out of division 3 next yr.well done lads.#DoireAbu #UTW

A full 24 hours before the team who relegated us last year swapped places after five consecutive defeats and a points difference of -40. No honour in this promotion; we touched lucky that Coleraine and not Sleacht Néill are Derry senior champions.

GAA Discussion / Re: NFL Division 1 2019 Dubs again?
« on: January 27, 2019, 08:45:44 PM »
Enjoyed Monaghan’s win. Felt they had to overcome two very poor refereeing displays. Dublin seem to get all the marginal calls. Dublin seem to go down looking for frees constantly and also the holding of the ball (esp MDMA) is unreal. Dublin continually looking for every advantage and refusing to reduce to 14 men by trying to slip MDMA back on. Gavin and his management team are clued in on all the dark arts. Thought the officials on the line should know exactly what’s going on rather than looking completely f**king stupid.
McCarron and Hughes did very well despite the attention of Cooper and co.
Overall Monaghan the better team and good to see the Dubs defeated even after they tried every trick in the book.
If referees start to referee games involving Dublin with a fair hand I can see them being defeated this year.

I thought McCarron’s yellow should have been a straight red and McManus should have been black carded.

Why was the penalty given?

Felt sorry for us ::)

Possibly, but too close for that.

McNamee suspension should be doubled.

Need to back it up with a win tonight!

be poor showing if you cant beat a uni team

You'd hope / think so. Family do tonight so can't make Owenbeg, but we've a big athletic team out with 1 big hitter making a welcome return.

Don’t do that. For a moment I thought Mark Lynch had reconsidered.

So does anyone know all the various leagues and who is in what league next year?
What exactly are you looking for? The senior club football leagues?

If so, I believe it is as follows (Bolded teams to play senior championship, underlined to play Intermediate):

Div 1A
Slaughtneil 
Magherafelt
Coleraine
Glen
Ballinderry
Dungiven
The Loup
Lavey
Bellaghy
Ballinascreen 
Swatragh
Banagher


Div 1B
Newbridge
Kilrea
Greenlough
Glenullin

Claudy
Foreglen
Castledawson
Ballymaguigan
Steelstown
Drumsurn
Faughanvale
Limavady


Div2
Ballerin
Slaughtmanus
Desertmartin
Lissan
Craigbane
Doire Trasna

Drum
Magilligan
Moneymore
Doire Colmcille
Glack
Ogra Colmcille
Ardmore
Sean Dolans

A small thing possibly, but could the 12/12/14 model be replaced with a 13/13/12 one.

Would mean div 1 and 2 teams would have an equal number of home and away games and a week off during the season (possibly at the request of the club).

Would also mean that the strongest 1B team and the two strongest teams in div 2 would be moved up. The three reconstructed Divisons would lose little in terms of competitiveness.

Apply the Kerry Model to this list for Senior, Intermediate & Junior using the percentages that Kerry do
58 clubs in Kerry League - 8 Senior (~13.8%),16 Intermediate(27.5%) 16 Junior(27.5%)(referred to this year as Jnr Premier) -- 16 Junior  & Novice after that

We'd have 4/5 Senior - 11 Intermediate, 11 Junior

Slaughtneil 
Magherafelt
Coleraine
Glen
Ballinderry

Dungiven
The Loup
Lavey
Bellaghy
Ballinascreen 
Swatragh
Banagher

Newbridge
Kilrea
Greenlough
Glenullin

Claudy
Foreglen
Castledawson
Ballymaguigan
Steelstown
Drumsurn
Faughanvale
Limavady

Ballerin
Slaughtmanus
Desertmartin

Lissan
Craigbane
Doire Trasna
Drum
Magilligan
Moneymore
Doire Colmcille
Glack
Ogra Colmcille
Ardmore
Sean Dolans


So to make things even, should we run off an intermediate competition from the current senior championship - the 11 that don't make the semi-finals.
& the current intermediate competition winners can represent us at Junior Level

And we could further apply the Kerry model by introducing regional teams.

The Clady Valley - Bellaghy, Lavey & Greenlough
The Roe - Dungiven and Banagher
Moyola - Castledawson, Newbridge & Ballymaguigan
Kilrea & Desertoghill - Kilrea, Swatragh, Glenullin, Ballerin
Tyrone - Lissan, Ogra, Loup, Moneymore (Loup may have already tried that one)

Anyone remember Cafe Montmartre on the Stranmillis Road? Became the Abacus, could be anything now.

Great spot.
I lived in Stranmillis 95-97 and the Abacus was there then.

Montmartre would have been gone by then, early-mid 90s. Owned by an old Italian couple, best Saturday morning fry I've ever had; I didn't drink, so it wasn't hangover influenced.

Wolfhounds, Banagher and Eoghan Rua all back in action tomorrow. Be great see them all win, though no easy matches at this level. I'd say Frank McGlynn would take the watching at intermediate club level!

More than Mark Lynch?

Doubt it.

Best of luck to all three clubs.

On reflection, the ban fro next year's championship is quite lenient. Neither team would be serious contenders, nor be expected to progress far. With the back door, it's a loss of 2-3 games at most

My take also. Very lenient. Ban both clubs from every competition for the maximum period permitted. And ban identifiable individuals for the same length of time.

Very easy to do with few county men involved. (And, therein lies the real issue).

BTW, same punishment with recent rows in other counties, including my own.

Do the current rules allow this?

If they don't, they should be amended to do so. The Harps and RGU folk would think several times before jumping the wire again.

Would you ban Slaughtneil senior hurlers and footballers for something their reserve footballers did as well?

Short answer is Yes.

Long answer is Yes, because some of those reserve football scoundrels will be lining out against Ballycran next weekend and because there were incidents in the senior match the previous evening and because there is a track record of similar behaviour over a number of years.

Great club and community though, but not exempt from appropriate sanctions.
