Forgive me if I'm being ignorant but what happened to Washingbay years ago? did they simply change to Derrylaughan. Or was it split into several clubs?

While we are on the history lessons where is Windmill?

I vaguely remember playing them underage and had always thought they were in Ardboe parish, possibly Coagh.

Mountfield folding is part of the history of Killyclogher underage being called Cappagh, to represent the whole parish.

I don't think Glencull St Malachys were ever amalgamated to the GAA and only played tournaments and carnivals.

Dregish have also been bordering on Castlederg and Drumquin so it sounds like a group decision to throw their lot in with Newtown despite combining underage with Drumquin.

Not to start a bit of a war on this....but did Glencull as a club actually fold or was it a club' or what exactly was the craic there?
It was in effect an unaffiliated Gaelic Football Club. It tried to obtain affiliation via the Tyrone County Board but got cockblocked each time before they "merged" or "reunited" with Ballygawley St. Ciaran's to become Errigal Ciaran.

Mountjoy Emmetts changed to become Brocagh (or Brockagh) Emmetts in think in 1980.

The link between the old Washingbay Shamrocks and the present Derrylaughan is one I'm not entirely sure of but as far as I know both clubs covered the same catchment area. Someone nearer the loughshore than myself will probably know better.

Windmill was based up along the Tyrone/Derry border close to Ardboe & Moortown. It amalgamated with a neighbouring club in Co. Derry to become ”rga Colmcille if I'm correct. (EDIT: Seems like ”gra Colmcille is itself struggling to stay afloat themselves after withdrawing from the Derry senior league).

Way back in 2007, Drumquin & Dregish formed a youth amalgamation called Michael Cusacks, but it was disbanded after the end of 2008. Since then youth players whom would otherwise be associated with Dregish have been playing with different neighbouring clubs.

As to which folded first, Windmill or Mountfield, someone with a pile of old Tyrone GAA annuals might be able to look it up. 🧐

Ironically enough, Ogra Colmcille folded during the sumemer.

Funny I was looking through a newspaper from 1980 earlier. It looks like Mountfield were fielding but not Windmill.

Also, and I'd need to check again, was there a youth team called St Albans?

IIRC St. Albans was a combined youth team of Stewartstown & Brackaville - our resident Stewartstown member might be able to confirm.

I assume they were suspended that year.

On the subject of amalgamations areGael Naomh Padraig an Augher, Eskra, Clogher combination?
Who then are the similarly are Naomh Padraig?
Was there once an Eglish, Aghaloo, Kileeshil combination called Shamrocks, perhaps early 90s or late 80s.

Yes you are correct about St. Albans. That team was present from the late 70ís to early 80ís.
It actually wonít be long until we need an amalgamation again with somebody.

Still canít get my head around our current u13ís being put into grade 2 as we only have a squad of 15 players and nearly half of them are still in primary school and there are no 3rd years on the team either. And then you look at some of the clubs in grade 3.

As for Windmill they were definitely playing circa 1990/1991 before folding.

There was a Shamrocks playing in that 1980 paper I read today. It was a youth grade although I can't mind which one.

Windmill were definitely around in the late 80ís. Their minor team played in the U16 competitions one year and nearly won it 😉 think they are located on the coagh road out of Moortown but not 100% sure. Maybe closer to Ballinderry. If I am correct their best player was Scotchy Hagan who later transferred to Moortown and won U21 All Ireland with Tyrone and played senior for Tyrone also.

Talking of amalgamations - I think we will see a lot more of them in the near future - lot of rural clubs struggling for numbers again. A great pity if it happens but clubs will do it in order to survive
