She sounds to be a real good one. Loughgiel very dominant in Antrim but just have a formidable opponent in slaughtneil when it comes to Ulster.

Will league games be going ahead? Iím hearing murmurs of a few clubs finished up for the season now. Suppose with Championship over there isnít really the eagerness to play so called meaningless league games

I've heard that league games will go ahead but clubs will not be forced to play. I think clubs should play games, even though there is no promotion and relegation, and no county players included, to give squad players and up and coming players game time before next season.

How is the hurling panel looking? Be good to see the likes of Ronan  Molloy and Seaan Elliot in it.  Nugent, Johnston, molloy, McManus,Mcnaughton and the likes of Elliot or cunning would be some forward line. I havenít seen much of Rossa but with how they did they must have some players to add too.

Will Nugent be fit? A dislocated elbow is a bad injury even if he did do brilliantly with it in the Loughgiel match.

Loughgiel Camogs stepping it up a gear in the second half. Roisin McCormick running the show.

was at the game on Sunday. really entertaining match between the two sides but Loughgiel were always on top from the very start of the game. Ballycastle did get back into the game but they never looked like going in front.

Christine Laverty was Loughgiels best player. serious work rate and broke up so much ball, won it and then delivered into the forwards. That said they will struggle to beat Sneill. they look seriously good still.

1st half was competitive enough i suppose but the 2nd half was a whitewash. Think Ballycastle scored once - with a few minutes to go. They just don't have enough quality up front and they couldn't contain Catrion Dobbin and Roisin McCormick. Christine Laverty had a good game but Roisin McCormick was head and shoulders above the rest. Even when they doubled up on her she still won 90% of the ball. Think she finished with about 15 points.

Dunloy v Ballycastle is where the battles lie over the next few seasons. Loughgiel too far in front to be caught just yet.

Is there an Ulster club camogie final this year DR? There's only 2 teams so it'd be relatively straight forward to run off.

yeah and ulster final in Jan between the Antrim and Derry champions. No more counties enter it at senior level though to be honest the Down champions should be in it now as Clonduff have shown they would be good enough.

Derry final is this saturday.

Yeah them pair up front are total quality. they are fantastic players and are the main scoring threat for Loughgiel. Young McKillop had a good game as well, they pushed her up rather than in defence and she broke up alot of ball and won it as well. Good decision to play her where they did.

Ourselves, well we made a balls of the semi final against Ballycastle. We beat them twice in the year but come championship we played nothing and were 1-08 to 0-01 down. BC never scored in the second half and despite us playing so bad we could of won the game.

I wouldnt say Loughgiel are streets ahead at the moment. I would say they used to be but the gaps closing now on them. they used to beat us by 30 points now the max is single figures, but they are still the standard bearers for Camogie in Antrim that we all need to get to their level.

we have a lot of strong young girls into the senior set up that won the last 3 U16 titles in a row and the Minors so with time id be confident we will be there or thereabouts.

Anyone else think the rise of ladies football will have an affect on camogie? Popping up all over Derry and we would be a camogie county. Very easy to get a team going in matter of months. I hope camogie can sustain itself, a much better game.

Don't know how Clonduff get away with this, they're by far the best team in Down yet win the Ulster intermediate and even an AI intermediate and then somehow are allowed to enter ulster intermediate the following year.

This one has baffled me for a while, how does this keep happening? Surely having won it there should be the stipulation that you are senior grade the following year. Also slightly irksome on the socials when you keep hearing about the great achievement year after year, romping the Down championship and then entering a championship in Ulster that they are over qualified for.

I would have thought that there would be some ambition to at least test themselves and see where they are at one year JC no?
