Seen on Twitter, Darren O'hagan and Harrison both out injured. Big blow to Paddy Tally that. Anybody see the new players called in named in Newry Reporter?

Shame that, hopefully he makes full recovery, he's probably one of the most under rated players in Ireland. Been consistently excellent for past 8 or 9 years.

Donít think he is under rated he just plays for a county not at the top table at present. His desire/heart/toughness playing for a Dublin, Kerry, Tyrone Mayo he would prob have at least one all star.. serious club player too. Darren is 30 now - the intensity he plays the game at - it could be difficult to see him back to his 100% best. Harrison is another blow - havenít really had much outta him at county level for a while now. Would they not be safer playing a young lad now In these two league games and v Fermanagh with one eye on the future??
That young lad OíHare from Saul is a huge prospect and Conor Mc Crickard from laitroim - play them lads now..

With the new restrictions does that mean that u17 intercounty will go ahead?
I take it thats senior leagues, reserve championships and hurling scrapped then?
Very tough on Clonduff but that is the hand we have been dealt with

Not sure on this one.. I think senior GAA is deemed elite level but U17s would still be children. What then for the u20 semi finals happening this weekend?? Because they are over 18 and playing at inter county standard with a few of them involved in their senior setups - are they deemed elite???

I do not think anyone knows, a statement from Ulster or Down would help to clarify some of the questions. Can teams train?

In the south, the FAI National Youth Leagues are considered elite sports (I believe, judging by the fact that the FAI kept them running after all but elite sport was banned there).

Iím sure they are trying to get clarity themselves seeing as the restrictions were only announced 8 hours ago.

Team named for tomorrow's game;
Burns
Collins
Murdock
McAleenan
D Guinness
P Fegan
S Fegan
Flynn
Poland
O Hagan
Mooney
Kerr
Doherty
J Johnson
O Hare

I would have preferred to see Donnelly (if fit?) playing in the middle. Ryan Johnson surely will get some game time aswell.
