LŠmh Dheargís was a saga after a battering match with a Donegal team led to multiple suspensions, appeals & squeals.

I was out of the country for a few years. Sounded like mayhem.

Rossa won U16 all county. Is that the last of their good teams for a wee while HS? Fair to say the rules the roost there for years.
Sometimes get my years mixed up but almost certain we did the double in All County Feile last year. If so, next yearís U16 teams should be handy enough.

You probably get a lot of their names mixed up as well HS, given the number of players from other clubs that are poached!
Go ahead and name them for me then.

Rossa best Cushendall in the fiele final last year, canít remember the score line but it was a fairly wide margin.  That same Cushendall were very strong in North Antrim!
What happens next????

Challenge is to get through that the feile isnt the end goal and to get the lads to stick at it past this and through the ranks upwards. Obviously challenges are greater for this for Belfast clubs traditionally, but it needs to happen regardless to get Rossa and other clubs back to competing regularly for senior honours.

Rossa's underage success over a significant number of years was purely down to clever poaching, manipulation in relation to transfers and sanctions.  The winning factor was the carrot and guaranteed trips to Feile.  I'd say over the past twenty years, you'll probably not find a more successful hurling club at underage level.  Only 1 senior Championship in 20 years tells its own story.

But they are the only club in Belfast to win a senior hurling championship since the early seventies. And as regards player poaching, all the big clubs poach off small clubs. Plenty of juvenile hurlers from Armoy, Cushendun and Carey playing for Cushendall, Ballycastle and Glenariffe, Even Loughgiel with their pick have pinched the odd hurler from Armoy over the years :)

Right up there with the lie that Belfast teams donít fulfill their fixtures that you went scurrying to the county board with before being exposed as the bitter wee bullshitter that you are.
Keep it up!

it could go either way sundays game but i think that Cdall have that edge in terms of knowing how to win a championship and could take it by 2 points.

Looking forward to it

When a Belfast club has a sniff of potential success they will fulfil their fixtures otherwise more often than not, will play at home but will not travel to NA.  Any NA club will relate to this.

You were proven to be telling lies. Joe Edwards went through every unfulfilled fixture and showed everyone at county convention that this claim was entirely false and that the clubs at fault for unfulfilled games were spread throughout the entire county and beyond it. Indeed, it even provoked the chairman of NA to apologise for including this nonsense in his annual report.
Keep peddling it if it gives you comfort.

Rossa (and Belfast select) must have gathered up a good team that year!  You keep referring to "me", I made no such claims at convention.

Didnít know Glenariffe were a big club

5 out of 5 senior semi finals played outside Belfast this year.gaa has recognised that Belfast is struggling with the gaelfast initiative.Seems county board are very happy not to promote our games in the city.Absolute farce.You would think that with casement gone they could at least try to encourage our games in the city even if it is just to pretend they are impartial.
