Tight pitch will suit us.

Where is the pitch anyhow?

Down, Derry game set for Davitt Park in Belfast.

Is it a good job there now?

yep.

How do you see it going? Down seem to have picked up a head of steam

Was told last night that Down may be querying the size of the pitch as Davitts is meant to be very short but it's bound to be at least 130 metres.

Not sure if there's any truth in that TBH.

The only other pitch in Antrim that could have hosted the Down Derry match was Portglenone and Ronan Sheehan was in no way allowing that venue due to the fact that Derry is a stone's throw across the Bann.

Id say the Athletic Grounds wouldn't be in great shape either.

I think Amcomri Street in Beechmount is how to get into the Davitts pitch.

Milltown Row or one of the Westies could give precise directions.

go up Beechmount street and turn left onto Clowney Street and head up to the top of it through St Marys Gardens and the pitch entrance is there.

seeing this spread of the virus now there are people asking the question if its wise to be allowing so many people to travel to Dublin for the game on Sunday.

we have 2 buses of kids going (around 100 of them) and id say there will be parents asking the same question.

There'll be plenty of room in Croke Park to practice "social distancing"

I saw on his twitter feed he had sambo i the top 5 hurlers he'd ever seen. I would have a lot of time for Sambo so absolutely not slating him but he seems to have latched on like you joke about there. There are probably cushendall people who would have 5 cushendall players ahead of him!
