Well done the Magpies.

Should really have won by more but Ulster championships are hard won and won't be forgotten any time soon.

Great show. Terry OíHanlon has put in some commitment to the cause over the years.

Great result for Kilcoo on Sunday well done to all.

But it is now a bit nauseating,all the comments.They are no different to clubs and chairmen up and down the country , all have serious commitment.Not much difference to commitment shown by coaches at Rossowen or Newry City or Warrenpoint Gaelic , it just sounds so oh unreal commitment ,nonsense all sports club up and down Northern Ireland have committed people.To talk about a club having all the right ideals seems to me very hypocritical in an amateur association they have all these paid personnel.

It was the poorest standard of an Ulster Club in years and really not surprised Kilcoo won.But some on here need to get a grip and coming out with all these cheesy words about Kilcoo.

It seemed to be a very poorly attended game.Now moving on who are the new faces in at County this year.Ross McGarry must be given proper and sustained game time.

All very quiet on the county front, hard to believe season starts again at the end of this month. Any word on who's been called into the panel for McKenna cup? Seen R Mc Garry & J McCartan names mentioned on this.

Typical comment from Yewtree, chip on shoulder, canít congratulate Kilcoo on a magnificent achievement, has to drag soccer clubs into his post, he is right that right across  the board there is serious commitment given by all coaches in all sports and you only get out what you put in andKilcoo have and continue to put in a serious amount of work , Iím not their biggest fan but admire their achievements thus far and would love to see them win the lot, also Richard head you canít have watched the Ulster final.  Kilcoo s performance was excellent , standard was very good, and while Ross McGarry is an outstanding club player I canít see him being a success at county level, I sincerely hope Iím wrong for the sake of the county team but time will tell.

Not many people looking to unseat any officers?? I actually think the county board are doing a lot better than previous years, the debt that has been left by previous officers is a disgrace

Jack Devanney as Chairman is a massive coup for Down , the regard he is held in is phenomenal on the corridors of GAA power.The fact that no one stood against him is a mark of the esteem he is held in within the county.

He is extremely educated well spoken ,well read on GAA issues and is a progressive.From talking to people the amazing part is it has taken him so long to become Chairman ,some say a potential President.He has worked tirelessly at all levels of the GAA over the years.

From a business background and living in South Down his first big challenge will be Ballykinler.

Will he scale it back and look at the options closer to home in Newry for us? Talk before was of the site near Newry and a scaled back Ballykinler , yes planning has been submitted but an amendment could be added.Jack Devanney will be looking to make his mark from the get go and I have a feeling Ballykinler will be on his radar to scale back.

Already the rumblings from sponsors like what has happened in other counties has begun.The sponsors will have a big say on this before any brick is laid and Jack Devanney will be very aware of those sponsors.So very much looking forward to his term.

Heard Jack made a great acceptance speech. He is a very capable  orator.  Will he be able to keep the man in the hat in check? As a paid officer his role is to carry out the decisions of the County Board, not be the decision taker as he has been for too long.

Yes, congratulations to Jack. Can't really see him curtailing BK, but then again there's people on here that seem to have the inside track
