If Casement Park sitting ready to be played on, would you still want it played at Ahoghill?

No, why would anyone not want it played at what would be a wonderful venue if its ever built?

But thats all what could be.

I'm just talking about the surface and it being in Belfast.  You wouldn't complain travelling for the surface there. Corrigan every bit as good as what Casement was in my opinion.

That said I always remember the same people slabbering about having to play in Casement for hurling County finals involving two NA clubs.

Yes Chapeau to Cargin and St Galls for that match. Really was one to remember, two teams going at it was a joy to behold and the resolution of both sides was admirable.

Final will be a different affair, can Cargin be as reckless against an organised Creggan team?  Creggan dont have the stars that st galls have but work so hard for each other and do the simple things well. Their form starts them as favourites but can Cargin's returning contingent make the difference?

Toals do not agree with you........but sure they go to lots of games  8) and go;

4/9 Cargin
13/8 Creggan

Handy money......?

naw your grand, we dont want to play in corrigan. Ahoghill will do us fine or even somewhere else halfway between until we get a county ground. until then we will continue 'slabbering' about it.

Yeah look in this instance Ahoghill makes sense. Randalstown would have been perfect as well had they decent vantage.

No need to ask supporters to travel to Belfast when nothing more available there right now.

Well if, as I've heard, you are going to be playing your minor final before the IFC final, you'd hardly expect your slabbering to work with 3 Belfast clubs involved.

As I wrote. If it's to happen before the IFC final that would be Gort, St Endas and the other minor finalist would be St Galls. 🙄

Afraid not, St Enda's play in South West competitions....including O'Cahan, Mc Cormick, as well as Laverty and Breslin cups and participate in all juvenile leagues (under12 to under-18.)

They may be a SW team but can they be considered a Belfast team?
Bredagh are a Belfast team but they arenít a South Antrim team.

St Endas from a competing point of view are a SW club but location is more Belfast so its really 50/50 for me.

Reading a fine article on social media about these fights during/after matches etc and about the passion from clubs. It did make a lot of sense. Our PRO got a mention in it though maybe a bit that should have been left out  :-X

And you are correct! They could be SW or NA.. donít forget SA couldnít cater for their teams a few years back so they came to the dark side  ;)
