I remember looking at last years list of transfers and and I think I counted 9 from Eire Og transferring to St Galls😳

Surely not....
thats probably a team folding. Eire Og struggle to field at juvenile level and are in amalgamations most of the time I think

So what are we saying here that if a player wants to transfer to another club they should be refused entry?!

Poaching?

Yeah.

So they were illegally stole from another club? Poaching definition, in case you are confused with players willingly changing clubs for their own personal reasons.

A bit unfair to say that or post that about lads youíve no idea as to why. But hey carry on

Mitchells no juveniles / McDermotts club gone / St Aggies, Eire Og , Colin gaels rarely can field at u12 upwards so kids going from them to clubs that can field is not poaching - the SW examples provided the SW posters were all from clubs that were fielding and look more like glory hunting

Surely thatís a failing on the divisional board though, no effort in keeping clubs going and arranging games for them. Look at the blitzes organised every Sunday in SW and NA. St Endas only started to achieve success when they left SA and came to the SW and NA underage leagues.

Was Sean Stinsons a failure of the SW boards having teams amalgamate? Or the current under age hurling amalgamation is that a failure of the NA board?

Who do you blame for the poor showing outside of Cargin for SW senior championships?

Youíre a laugh PJ, you SW ones were tearing strips out of yourselves on here and you thought Iíll start a Belfast bashing post!

Your first attempt was pathetic as you couldnít even get the club right, your knowledge of Belfast clubs was summed up perfectly and your silly attempt at using St Endas as platform for upping the SW is wrong also and a disservice to the hardworking volunteers within that club whoíve set up a community Irish hub, has nowt to do with the SW and more about the geography and numbers in that area, and with the help of some blow ins  ;)

Hopefully more SW teams can push Cargin in the future but I doubt it

Youíve a lot to answer for MR2! Poaching players and you robbed us at the start of the year too.
