Fantastic achievement. Will be interesting to see if any (or how many) of those involved progress to wearing Saffron for our seniors in the next few years.

Big shout out to John Mc Keever who was involved in Holy Trinitys all Ireland B college success beforehand.

It might stop people travelling from Lurgan to St. Colemanís Iím Newry now. Lurgan is a Gaelic mad town and the buzz about the place is unreal. Itíll take years for these lads to realise what they have done. The young ones in our club have some fantastic role models to look up to as well.

Fantastic achievement for the school and your club. it was brilliant to see.
hurl like f**k boi!

Early in the season I know, but the Belfast clubs seem to be picking up where they finished last year.  Both A & B boys Feile going to city clubs.  Could it be another clean sweep for Belfast?

What is the criteria for clubs selecting to go A or B?

Whose turn is it to get all the good players from around the city this year?  ;)

Watched an excellent All Saints minor team last night. Confident there would be two or three potentially good county seniors in their ranks if they stay at it. Notably a midfielder too, really caught the eye.

Senior leagues start tonight. All quiet on here....everyone quietly optimistic as usual at this time of the year lol.

I think it will be a very interesting division one this year. Two or three teams (Cargin Lamhs and Johnnies) think they are number one, Galls haven't gone away, Creggan always thereabouts still chasing the big one (in recent terms) and then there are the rest.

Rossa always a dark horse, Aghagallon on a definite progress curve, Portglenone blow hot and cold and need consistency, and of the rest, everyone capable of picking up points on their day!

Anyone brave enough to predict the top six in descending order??

Some scoreline in the dunloy match -3-0 to 0-8 with apparently 2 goals in injury time!

Some interesting results there. St galls beating st johns, portglenone so close against lamh dhearg.
