I see the club formerly know as Warrenpoint had their dinner dance at the weekend. A great day for the parish with the senior team being presented with their bronze senior league medals.

As a Burren man you are undoubtedly aware that teams in Burren have not always played under the St. Maryís name. Early teams in Burren included Corrags Clan na Gael, Wolfe Tones, Parnells and the Dreadnoughts. There was also a team known as the Hedge of Rats, maybe your family may have been represented on that particular team.

Your constant belittling of Warrenpoint/CPN is becoming a little tiresome to say the least. CPN are doing magnificent work at all levels and in both codes and this should be encouraged by anyone with an interest in GAA, wether they are from the locality or beyond. While we all enjoy local rivalry you just take things to a whole new level of fuckwhittery.

Looking forward to poacher v Down this weekend. Or I mean Carlow. Every paper you lift itís about poacher nobody else. Nothing to do with some great players Carlow have in Broderick and the murphys to name a few. They do not even get a mention. Has any number 2 in the history of the GAA got so many headlines?

Sherlock last year... Have to say it takes all the attention of the Carlow players, allows them to go into the game with no pressure on them. Smart tactic.

Has he been behaving himself on the line with Carlow or is he still at his usual antics?

Donít imagine thatís the plan. Itís always about him. Fecking narcissist. Last summer he had splash all over the papers withdrawing from the race for the Down job. Never in consideration!

Never in consideration because he wouldnít have Sean og dictating how heíd have to do things the ĎDown wayí. Only room for one narcissist in Down GAA.

Itís an excellent article and shows Poacher in a slightly different light than youíd expect. Iím sure most of us donít actually know the man, other than what we see for 70 minutes along the line. Heís a very well respected coach, who just happens to be working with the opposition today, but behind it all, heís still a Down man, a passionate one at that.

Seems to have been quite a game in Carlow. Our winning point came in the fourth minute of injury time and, according to the KCLR coverage, Poacher went for the referee at the final whistle. The commentators were frequently confused about what was happening but we appear to have had two red cards for second yellows in the closing stages. KCLR had no clue who went off.

The postponement of Laois v Westmeath complicates everything, and gaa.ie has suggested that it will not be played `this weekend'. Monday may be an option but, if that does not happen,  a decision will have to be taken on staging the final round of league fixtures next week.

Is that 3 of our 5 wins with injury time winners. We could be very easily sitting on 4 pts. But lads have done well to always be in a position to win the games.

Strange match. How Down found themselves in a draw game with time almost up is mad. Down dominated the match from start to finish and missed 4 goal chances. The referee give Carlow some really easy frees. Carlow kicked all but 2 score from free kicks. Good to get a win but thatís a poor Carlow team who lacked any fitness. Heavy suspensions to follow for Carlow after what happened at the end.
