Could not agree more around the venue.  The first location was ahoghil as it accommodates a crowd and attracts the derry supporters who would have interests in both teams.  Glenavy was the second option based on past few years but parking an issue and may as well travel to belfast.  Portglenone could hold claims to it as well - great setup.

Two good teams, two good managers, parish derby.   tick, tick, tick

I see that the Derry SFC final is scheduled for the same day - that could affect attendance.

You think the Cargin ones will go to the Derry final instead?  ;)

Both Cargin and Creggan (and both Managers) have the strong backbone of Derry education.  You would probably be surprised at the amount of people disgruntled with the two finals being on the same day

MR2 probably lying low till the hurling and football championships are over in case he gets the nod to perform the man in the middle role. Fair play to be in with that shout, a thumbs up from me anyway for commitment.

St Galls lost absolutely nothing in defeat on Saturday, contributing to a classic, with eight players in their mid thirties. Something I fear we will never see again in our lifetime. They mightnt have won the championship but showed us patches of football that took them to elite status at national club level.

And 100% fair play to Cargin for the comeback of all time!
Sounds like you need a hankie BS.....and you can use it again if an unlikely umpire's position becomes available
Wonder why you seem to require the "fair play to them" prefix when making reference to Cargin.....

If they take this anywhere else other than Ahoghill they need a good kick in the stones
10/15 minutes up the road for everyone
IFC in corrigan will make sense

Agreed Portglenone might also be in with a shout great set up.

Portglenone or even whitehill could be good shouts too
Ahoghill has the experience of having had it before

Hearing plans to play Minor A final before IFC final at Corrigan Park. Surely Dunloy would like it a bit more neutral

Glenavy best pitch in the county IMO and done a great job of hosting the final last year.

Have not been down round Portglenones new pitch yet. Did they build up some vantage viewing points around it? By all accounts great job done in every other way.

Would guess it will be Ahoghill though.

Probably is but surely geography has to be taken into consideration

Big call saying any particular surface best when there a number of excellent surfaces out there right now.
