Keyboard Warrior, Donegal are a very fine side but they are actually in division two, rather than division one. Down managed to win breaking ball from a few kick outs yesterday but the area was so congested that we had very few opportunities to set up attacks. The result was that we managed a total of three points by half time, at which stage the game was over. However, you are right to stress that all our preparations need to be geared up for the start of the league. If we are in decent shape for the Laois match, yesterday will be very quickly forgotten.

Congratulations to my own club, Bredagh, on scooping the Gaelic Life club of the year award last night. That's another one to polish 😉😜

Burren are a top notch club and an example to us all, but to be fair have a head start on other clubs due to a very strong tradition, and long established quality facilities , in an area with a very strong gaa ethos , with ready made rivalry and  competition  on your own doorstep .
Bredagh by contrast are formed less than 50 years ago in a non traditional GAA  area. They have had massive challenges accessing facilities in Castlereagh borough and even up to recently have endured harassment. In the midst of this they have actively promoted male and female football and hurling, and been successful . With GAA jerseys aplenty on the ravenhill  and ormeau roads, and the hive of GAA activity which is Cherryvale, the legacy of the visionaries who formed Breadgh in the 70s is amazing. Congrats Bredagh gaels, delighted that you are now getting the respect and recognition you deserve
