Any word on Trumera and Ballinakill? I would have assumed it would be approved or declined last night.
It was "approved" last night at county level. But the word is Croke Park are unlikely to allow it.

Big boost for Castletown. This year was always likely to be a crucial one; Slieve Bloom have a couple of promising young hurlers coming into adult ranks.

And so it should be blocked. No reason for allowing it. I don't understand how or why CB allowed it to be "passed" when it blatantly goes against their own bye laws introduced specifically to stop this kind of thing?
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

It shouldn't be approved anyway, these bed hopping amalgamations are the very thing brought up as an issue last year, although Trumera will probably say they cannot field a team on their own or something along those lines.

If Trumera go that route then surely they shouldn't be allowed compete at Senior A level on their own.

They have joined up with Mountrath at all juvenile grades. There had been a link with Raheen Parish Gaels but that seems to have fallen through.

In fairness, it was more of an ad hoc arrangement with Raheen Parish Gaels, and the move to Mountrath is an attempt to streamline matters, and have all their players playing underage in the one place, I suppose.

Oh God knows, they were allowed to join up with Kyle and play junior b or c on their own a couple of years ago, so on a different note are park/timahoe a full amalgamation or will they play junior on their own or play football on their own?

Timahoe and Park is a full amalgamation as a new hurling club. They will likely enter two teams; one in intermediate and one in Junior B.
