Yew tree , Wobbler and all the rest of the south down brigade , for years players from east down have travelled to hilltown and Newry, players who served their county with distinction from the following clubs, Carryduff, Bredagh,Loughinisland , Downpatrick,Ardglass,Teccouaght,Kilclief to name a few, did they complain, heíll no they f king got on with it, so whatís different if some guys have to travel to east down to train, the current hurling squad trains in Downpatrick and there are a few from south down and Iíve heard no complaints, but then the wobble brigade who know everything about down football maybe no different and to trot out a few serious football people have concerns doesnít wash, ask Greg Blaney , John Kelly Neil Collins Brendan Mason Gary Mason Dan Gordon,Alan Molloy, Barry Breen ,Conor Deegan, to name a few about travelling to training, did they complain, no , they got on with the job in hand because they wanted to play for their county, they made excuses to get to training not excuses to get out of it , so get over yourselves, financially it makes sense, logistically itís no worse than what we have had to put up with before, and wobbles the SFC, IFC and JFC will all be coming to east down, your team got lucky last time out , you have some decent young players who hopefully will be playing in the red and black so get the sat nav updated in case you get lost going to Ballykinlar 💙😂❤️🖤

Cuan , you are trotting names of old men from a bygone era and bar one or two of them they wouldnt count in the modern game.Time moves on and yes East Down produced the odd footballer of note but in recent times they haven't.The heart of football in Down is in the Newry area and to invest serious capital in East Down is insane.There is growing resentment in South Down and mark my words it is doomed the serious football men will not be training or taking teams in Ballykinler and other counties will not travel.It is in a remote backwater footballwise ,beautiful scenery yes but logistically mad.
At the weekend I was in the company of serious smart football men and they have said 'we will not tolerate it'.Abbey and College facilities already built and waiting ,make it a East Down Football Rehabilitation Centre !

Yew tree tell me what level you played at and what you won, all of the names I mentioned were superstars in gaa terms , they could have played at any level, they would have adapted they would have trained but most of all they would not trot out horse shit of excuses, I had the honour of playing with and against these men and they wouldnít used distance and facilities as excuses, I would love to meet these serious gaa men you trot out who are against Ballykinlar , I believe some very narrowed mi def people are against this, Parc Esler will always be our pitch and is in south down, why canít we have a centre of excellence  in East Down, itís voted on at county board ,its passed and all the bull shit excuses wonít change it, so show some respect to ex down players, get a good sat nav and start supporting your county, I would love to call you some bad names here but you are a down Gael and I respect that

I played against and with POR, against Ross Carr, against Pete McGrath , managed by Sean I Neill and the late Pat oHare and every one of those men and a dozen more like them are not worried about location but having a facility to call our own and be proud of, so get on board .

but all the moaning wonít stop Ballykinlar from happening and guys like yourself need to get behind this project , thereís no other alternative

You sound like Boris f**king Johnson.

You just need to believe more and we'll get Ballykinlar done and there will be rivers of chocolate and pots of gold at the end of the rainbows.  ::)

Couldn't care less who you Cuan played against - your points regarding Ballykinler are out of touch with followers of Down Football.We don't want it located there , there will be a boycott in essence managers won't train there ,clubs like Harps,Burren or The Bridge won't tolerate it.
East Down Rehabilitation Centre perhaps to get East Down up to a bit of a level.And please refrain from the old chestnut of naming a few old men from there.

Few facts , east down club has dominated the SFC in the last decade, east down club wonít ulster intermediate c ship, last year all three c ship trophies last year, so why in heavens name locate everything in south down, the amount of dis respect to east down players is in real, we donít show the same towards south down players , coaches and administrators, quite the opposite , A tricolour and a red and black flag over Ballykinlar will warm the heart of this Gael and fellow Gaelís, you donít want involved f k off and watch Newry City or Warrenpoint Town , after all only take you 10 mins and tickets wonít be hard to come by

What happened at the lgfa intermediate final on Saturday?

I heard there were punches thrown by a Kilcoo man on the stand side. I was on the opposite side so didn't see it, happy to be corrected if its wrong. What I did see was Conor Lavery running all the way round the pitch to abuse the lineswoman who had advised the ref to give a yellow card to a Kilcoo player. It was unnecessary and unsporting and a really bad example to young players, as Kilcoo were much the better team and never in danger of defeat.
This shouldn't take away from what was a great occasion; hats off to the organisers. The Down LGFA are unsung heroes, providing games for our young women despite operating with a tiny budget.

Well, bar the important one.... unless Burren teletransported last year?
