Itís either that or club players from teams who canít put a team into the competition lose out at that level

Or they could pool together to form a team of their own.

Sean Stinsons was formed as a 'juvenile' unit of our association way back in the late 70s (1978 possibly) and involved an amalgamation of youngsters from neighbouring 'junior' clubs, Casement's and St Mary's.
The formation ensured the progress of both the clubs involved which is underlined in their respective current status.
St Mary's in particular based in an area in which the majority of the surrounding population are not friends of our Association.

Stinson's gained success in the All County stage in a four in a row minor titles 95/98.

There have been more than a few attempts made at replication in our county......without longevity......none were successful.

I struggle to understand those who would draw comparison to the current 'sanction' system...with Sean Stinson's.

See above post, they could pull together to form their own club, Like Sean Stinsons did a while back

Nothing but respect for our SW Gaels who, at horrendous times and during the height of hatred, attacks on Gaels and their facilities were able to pull together and keep going.  If they needed to amalgamate so that they could survive, then they absolutely did the right thing.  Those clubs would arguably not be in the position they are in with the facilities they have worked for benefitting those rural areas but for Sean Stinson's existing.  Many of the products of Stinson's represented our county and are the backbone of their clubs today.  Easy for some wishy washy people to criticise sitting in an ivory tower of sanctuary and not being surrounded by the 'mid-Ulster UVF'.  Our games are flourishing in the South West, which is a testament to the Gaels of that area and long may it continue.

this all started with someone saying rossa/st teresas/davitts were beat by Dunloy - is this person saying they had more than 2 sanctions?

I hear the county board are telling the clubs age grade changes are happening without any debate like they did last Christmas. Do they think everyone is asleep at Christmas! Bad start from new chairman
