Any truth Carlow will be getting a new manager. A Down man who has already been involved with them? Thatís what I am hearing. It would be a surprise if that wasnít the case. A good fit for both it seems.

According to Gaelic life player tested for COVID-19 from Attical.. Hopefully gets well soon, but have County Board or Croke Park set out guidelines on what happens to club if this happens? They have a fixture on Friday and if itís a player on senior panel do the rest of the panel need to self-isolate?

Should be contacted every day                                        Should ring GP immediately if any symptoms develop
Telephone GP immediately if unwell
Donít leave home unless necessary

Nothing personal but just calling out the clubs who think they are above the law. The truth really does hurt some people.

And who is your holier than thou club lotto?

The issue here is managers and clubs being above the rules and society.
They need to be called out.
Lunatics having 15 ,16 year olds out training in Kilbroney in June (against all regulations GAA and society ) when the games are not until October, it is either right or wrong. Our County Board and our clubs who don't call this out are wrong and weak.
It is not an issue of 'holier than thou' it was and is wrong.
Mourne Red were you aware of this ?
Do you think it was correct ?
If your club had a 15 ,16 year old there when restrictions were not lifted and he was one of over 30 in a small pitch in Kilbroney would you think it ok ?
Would you ask your club to ask at the county board what went on in Kilbroney that night ?
What adults called for that gathering ?
Then ask the County Board to give all details to Croke Park ,Newry ,Mourne and Down District Council Officers and take it from there.
The clubs and managers ethics during this pandemic need to be assessed.

Mourne Red that is terrible news out of Attical. It is very worrying for all in that area and to the continuation of Gaelic matches and training.

Kilbroney gate has not been looked into at all and as usual certain people are above the rules and ethics of GAA .This irresponsible behaviour needs called out , these adults are bringing the game into disrepute.

To highlight this disregard and GAA position on County Team Gatherings and processes under Covid 19 our County mentors have called 15,16 year old lads to Kilbroney Park again this week for a training gathering less than 10 miles from Attical.

Can our County Board and clubs stand by and watch this ? The GAA needs to stop this and sanctions handed out.

These lunatics are making a mockery of everything and a disgrace - does Down GAA sit back and allow this ?

Let's all hope the news from Attical is not life threatening .

Just me thinking out loud, but surely if thereís one thing that might be safer than outdoor training 10 miles from a lightly infected rural community, is imaginary training 10 miles from a lightly infected rural community.

Has anyone actually seen the photo from Kilbroney or is it all rumours so far? Bad news about player in Attical hopefully he recovers quickly, and it doesnt spread.

Gaelic Life also reporting Ryan McAleenan has stepped away from county football. Big blow for Tally that, he was very steady defender and Tally obviously liked him.

Are clubs going to stop people from attending?

As it turns out the Attical person who tested positive was away through work and just returned to the mourned as he was unwell. A parent of a player not a player. All family tested and all came back negative. Letís move on From Kilbroney Gate.

Why? Especially when they so flagrantly broke the rules? Is it cause they're run by Wee James? Or a spineless CB?

If the 2nd case is in fact in our County, does put worries of the league/Championship being played out in doubt - Out of curiosity can those men involved in their Clubs committee answer me this, what happens if a club doesn't fulfill a fixture but cites worries over Coronavirus as a reason is it still the same punishment for not fulfilling a fixture in previous years? i.e a fine and points deduction for the following season
