It's a thankless task. Some clubs have only 1 pitch and take into consideration that clubs offer Football, Hurling, Camogie & Ladies Football from Un8 right up to senior, only so many hours in the day and days of the week.

October/November I think I read in the Irish News. Not sure if heís to work his notice with his current job.

You wouldíve thought it would be better to start in August/September before the schools went back.

By all accounts he is a good get for the job which is heartening but October/November ! Hate to be a dark cloud on this but that's some notice period and we need urgency as we have yet another barren summer while we watch the all-ireland series unfold in front of our envious eyes :(

We will watch many an AI series roll on as we have barren season after barren season. PD starting in October/November or next spring will have zero impact on that. It will be years before we see the results of this.

Urgent, why's that? We have slept through a slow decline, hit the wall and now its a crisis!! It is what it is. PD is as good a candidate there is and isn't one for going through the motions so my prediction is he will make a positive impact. My preference is suspend senior inter county until we put bricks and mortar under our aspirations, however long that takes. Lets make it about the club again. This isn't a fit for the current business model though.

To the posters above of course the new initiative will take years to affect the adult scene but we don't have 4/5 months to wait that's all.

I'm looking forward to seeing PD in operation and disappointed its not happening sooner. Initiatives like this can lift other Antrim Gaels struggling to see the fruits of their work

Like your radical thinking about pulling out of county and diverting our resources to building a strong clubs. I'd say this is well worth a debate and if one county did it others would follow but no one will want to be the first to do it

Why donít we have 4/5 months to wait? Would you have preferred a lesser candidate to take over today? And not get the right results further down the road?
