What way do these gales teams work? Do all players train together for the whole year do the players who want to play senior train with both?

The latter

O dempseys vote against an amalgamation with Annanough  (source from Annanough)
I heard Clonaslee had approached Annanough. Odd bedfellows.

thank you for the reply, probably no point as ben conroy is the only one they would most likely benefit from and he wouldnt he able to get it all his own way at senior level just yet

Oh now, I'm not sure T Crilly would agree with this!
Didn't you , I mean he, have him in the Top 3 players in the county?

I though that alright, just from what i heard from the shanahoe/ballypickas thing they were going with the first option which wouldnt have been done before, also heard abbeyleix still havnt found a trainer yet

It's a novel way of doing it, but it makes sense if true.
I'd imagine both teams would have small numbers. It would share the burden of paying for a trainer and training costs, would increase camaraderie and it would give those from the smaller club an excellent chance at making the Gaels team.

What happened with the Tyrell fella from last year?

Left of his own accord, believe there was a money issue

Clonaslee and Annanough was in the pipeline but has fallen through and The Heath and Timahoe has gone too at the last minute! Is there any Gaels teams actually going ahead??

There's talk Colt and clonad at senior b hurling as a gaels possibly. Would be a good one considering they're in same parish. Did barrowhouse and Kileen talk mount to anything about a gaels team?

It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Heard that Timahoe's committee threw away the idea meaning that they have managed to piss off both sides of the club if true. The long distance/lack of juvenile link gales teams seem to be failing to get off the ground. The only one that seems to be happening is crettyard and spink which was always likely given the success they had last year. Also seems to be a higher chance in hurling. From the gales teams ive heard proposed.
The Heath Gales (Timahoe) No
Mountmellick Gales (Emo) No
St Josephs Gales (Barrowhouse) No
Crettyard Gales (Spink) Yes
Arles Killen Gales (Barrowhouse) N/A
O'Dempseys Gales (Annanough) No
Castletown Gales (Slieve Bloom) N/A
Ballinakill Gales (Slieve Bloom) No
Colt Gales (Clonad) Yes
Ballyfin Gales (Mountmellick) Yes
Shanahoe Gales (Ballypickas) Yes

Ive heard that some of the bigger clubs, hurling ones in particular have been complaining about these gales teams and how it is an unfair advantage but the reality is that a colt/clonad or a shanahoe/ballypickas combination still wouldnt have 2/3rds the pick of a borris/kilcotton or a camross.

Thanks for putting that together.

The Kileen gaels is almost agreed although it may cause one or two defections from B/House.
