Should be a cracker, mainly dry this week bar tomorrow so hopefully the ground will harden up a bit and conditions wont be a talking point....

Hard to call, maybe a year early for Dunloy but if they manage to get over the line then the coneyor belt of talent coming through of the 3 times minor finalists and under 21 champions and the now reaching the final it could be a new begining for Dunloy...

Course Cushendall will be having none of that crap and if they manage to turn over more scores from the possession they had against Loughgiel then they should win, McManus still the big engine in that team and he drives them over the line and they have managed to grind out results, propbably a feeling of unfinished business with the All Ireland run so plenty for both teams to go for!!

You on duty?

Nope? I'll probably watch our kids in the Nipper Quinn final
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Noticed a few fixtures for Sunday, bit of a clash for some people who would want to go.

Noticed that myself, some football fixtures too, I'm sure if the clubs could talk to each other then they could arrange a better time?


As for the minor final, Dunloy when they got going were too good for a big Ballycastle side, Ballycastle had chances but goal win games and Dunloys second goal was something else, Dunloy seem to have a great system (im sure on purpose) of having great past hurlers putting in the hard yards with these lads every year, I know how hard it is to bring

I have to praise Glenariffe for their efforts in helping me out with umpires, who did a great job and their efforts at keeping the ground (considering the conditions) in great shape. and the tea and food as usual was great

Agree, let's hope clubs sort it. I know the attendances at the semi final were hampered as lads had games fixed in Div2 hurling.

Glenarriffe are a super club.

I thought that anything good and positive that happened any GAA club would be positive for the club members and parish that it belonged to. For to long negative press about our association have been aired and written, fair play to Ossians in securing the funding necessary and making it work.

What Glenariff have achieved in raising and securing funding to build their new facility is nothing short of magnificent. They are an example to many other clubs who wish to improve their own facilities. That being said securing the funding is actually the easier part. When all the big knobs leave after the grand opening and tea and sandwiches that is when it get tough. There are no grants for heat, electric, rates, maintenance or the like.

Continuous fundraising is the only way forward!!

That's the nail on the head & i feel we have maybe over extended, could be wrong. I just think the maintenance & upkeep could be difficult year on year.

No doubt it'll be tough Minder but your club now has a track record in fundraising. That level needs to be maintained and it's important the community understand that when the ribbon is cut the work doesn't finish.
