oh and speaking about incompetence,

The lack of hurling referees has now reached "a crisis" according to the powers that be in an email today and there is a "likelihood" that hurling games at u14/16/minor might have to be postponed due to a lack of refs in the coming months.

at least mentors might have a bit of practice,having reffed all the u12 games might now be able to step up and do the older games as well.

laughable

I must say, I agree w/ Don on this. Get it over with. No need for this holier-than-thou rubbish.

The lack of referees in the county is FAR more serious. However, we've been able to get county board refs for some of our u12 games. Just because the county board ain't supplying them, doesn't mean they're not to be got.

Also agree with all of dons take on this, apart from the public floggings!!

Disgusting and brainless behaviour by a "thick", pure and simple, if you're  A team & 'A' players take part in division 1, what the f**k good would s div 8 final be to you or your 'A' players.
I'd imagine knockmay & similar schools with very little GAA background get it tough to promote the games, a win in anything would help no end keep interest with kids and parents alike.

As for them quoting rules or lack of broken rules etc., one further expresses the level of backward thickness involved. Should you need a watertight rule book for primary kids games?

What about a bit of integrity, common sense and intelligence, attributes you surely would expect to find in our principals and their staff.

Castletown were completely wrong and the principal of the school who was also chairperson knew what she done was deceitful and displayed a complete disrespect for the children of her School and the opposing school. as a result of this she put her hands up and resigned in embarrassment.
How can she look at a cup in the school for the next year knowing it was won by cheating under her instruction is beggars belief. All of her Students know this, so the wright thing to do is hand back the cup and close the issue.
lets hope it is a lesson learned,keeping the cup is telling the school kids that it all right to cheat and win at all cost is more important than honesty.

At the opposite end of the spectrum to that clown of a principal in Castletown

18 Pupils

2 teachers

A first class goalie in every sense of the word

Just goes to show what can be achieved with good people in charge

what a wonderful story well done to all involved. this win was achieved by hard work and dedication. reading the story of the school and all involved would lift anyone's heart. an achievement that will never be forgot by all the students, parents, staff and mentors to me that is the true spirit of  cumann-na-mbunscol a very positive achievement after all the negatives from Castletown N.S.

Our U14 hurlers face Dublin tomorrow morning at 11 in the Centre of Excellence. Should be a good test for this group of lads who have been going well. We may be short a few though.

Interesting that Laois are the only team here that wouldn't be a considered a top team. Admirable ambition. Are they strong enough for it?

Good luck to Rosenallis who play Bunclody in the Div2 Feile Cup semi-final today. They are doing the county proud.

That club deserves serious praise. A template that should be repeated across the county.

The feile has been devalued somewhat since they reformed it a few years ago. But this was real deal in so far as they beat 2 Kilkenny Division 1 teams in the knockout stages. There are only 6 teams in Division 1 in Kilkenny which shows the scale of the achievement.

You are right on that. One advantage Rosenallis has is that it is the only club in the parish which puts the club at the heart of the community. Everybody tends to sing from the same hymn sheet. Very few clubs have people as committed as Rosenallis and it shows in their teams. Ballyfin and Clonaslee are other clubs who could do well to emulate them.
