I see there needed to be an air ambulance for one of the portaferry games at the weekend.

Dundrum now affected.

Unfortunately 4 within our club infected now per the Facebook post the club put out.. Hopefully itís a speedy recovery for them and we can get back out on the field again soon.

Hopefully teams played in the past few weeks all return negative too

Bad alright. Reports are that he went up to catch a ball and twisted his foot on landing so badly that the foot was allegedly pointing in the opposite direction. That's probably an exaggeration but not good nonetheless

Castlewellan ladies coach tested positive and was out in Mullhollands on Saturday night.. Think itís time to drive home ďStay Away if you want to playĒ. Amount of young ones out at the weekends in the pubs then going to training during the week putting teammates at risk is selfish

That is very unfair on the person who got it, I hope he is ok. You are allowed to socialize, but I cannot see the GAA season finishing with all this going on. It is making people feel very uneasy. At the end of the day it is only a game of football or hurling. Is it worth all this? That twice Castlwellan have  had to close, that is an awful lot of pressure on their committee and volunteers.

I get what youíre saying at me being a bit unfair, but if they had symptoms at the time you are supposed to self-isolate not socialise.. Just with the time it takes to have symptoms, book a test and get your results back the probably would have had symptoms at the weekend.

I think itíll be a domino effect once one club pulls out of league/championship for the year other clubs will follow, just a case of who blinks first.

I think you are right and i do not think that clubs would be overly worried about no action. There is too much riding on this unfortunately.

Was at the CPN/Rostrevor game; a draw at half-time, then Rostrevor for some reason substituted half their defenders, and CPN dominated from then on.
Have to mention the CPN goalie, who operated very effectively as a sweeper in front of the Rostrevor full-forward line, preventing any long balls coming in. His kick-outs were also excellent; the county should definitely be looking at him

Took a wee hiatus from the board there but some things donít change.

No real discussions on the football so far this year? Any team think standing out in any division?

See Wee James in the irish news today giving off about other counties breading training rules....

Do the rules not apply to him? When 1 of his teams was photographed in Kilbroney weeks ago???

with covid 19 rife in areas around Newcastle does anyone know if county board has a contingency plan if an area goes into lockdown. A few people on social media crying out for newcastle/castlewellan areas to go into lockdown. If that happens you could be talking 6 clubs!
