Beware of touts I was always told.
In Sept clubs advised no change, now after AGMs there is a will to change something that is not being implemented nationwide until 2020. Feel sorry for lads that will not be able to play Feile and those who are 18 and miss out on minor.
Following a late directive is not really planning for future implementation

Would you also feel sorry for the lads the following year?

So referees and paid coaches aren’t hard working? I get expenses, I don’t get paid, I’ve a job..



Now Now MR you get a match fee plus travelling expenses for mileage... ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) the refs in the south have to declare their match fee to the revenue.....  and i do agree we all work hard irresespective wheter we get a fee or expenses or nought...thats the GAA

A few quid, for having to listen to an hour of non stop shite. An absolute bargain.

Commiserations to Dunloy who lost nothing in defeat and will be back competing for this title again next year. But sincere congrats to St Brigids who posted a flag in the ground for the City, first one of the year, and a big statement of intent for their future.

Antrim needs a strong base in the city and St Brigids have now scored their biggest ever success. Well done, enjoy and go build on that. Greg Finnegan has seen a fair bit in his football career, but today could be the highlight, and to do it with his son Patrick leading from front must be particularly satisfying. On today's display Antrim football is not in bad shape. Hopefully St Brigids will go on to hold their own in the Creggan tournament.

we shot ourselves in the foot in the second half with some poor shooting. had we not missed all them chances esp when we were in front it would have made a difference.

A pity but at the same time not too disappointed at losing. Brigids were the strong favourites for the competition and have looked strong all the way through the competition and were worthy winners at the end up.

B county final last year and A county final the following year so we are making big strides there. The lads can now take a well deserved rest now after being on the go for so long.

Before the creation of St Brigid's what clubs would the players from their catchment area have went to?

I thought there was no Creggan tournament this year?
EDIT: I now see that there is.  Was there an issue about u20/u21 teams?
I would say Carryduff will be hard to beat.
