Any updates on the Timahoe/Heath amalgamation?

Right so we have had

Clonad/Colt/Shanahoe Juvenile
The Heath/Emo
The Heath/Timahoe
Timahoe/Ballypickas
Emo/Mountmellick
Slieve Bloom/Ballinakill
Slieve Bloom/Castletown

I've probably missed a few too.
Have any of these happened or look like happening?

Shanahoe/ballypickas is done for gales apparently,timahoe deals in both codes shot down by committee, josephs/barrowhouse was rejected by josephs, they are the ones ive heard anyway, im assuming with the exception of ballinakill and slieve margy all other gales teams areremaining from last year

Colt/trumera was another high stool story as was kyle/knock with kyle to hurl in tipp which didnt happen but was discussed at meetigs on both sides

Kyle/knock was going on for a few years now, came close a few years ago apparently but they were going to hurl in laois because they reckoned they would make a bigger impact, wonder is a cross county amalgamation been done or even possible?

I would say that whichever club was moving would have to disband. The other club would then have to change their name to incorporate the other club. The players would then need to get intercounty transfers from the disbanded club to the newly renamed club!

Shanahoe/ballypickas is done for gales apparently

I have a problem with this. If this is true,
Ballypickas will play on their own in JHC, with Shanahoe in SHC A, with St Fintan's in U14 & U16, with Abbeyleix in Minor & U21.
This all getting too messy for my liking.

Same with mooted arrangements like Ballinakill & Slieve Bloom and Na Fianna underage which at some age extends to Mountmellick, Ballyfin, Emo, Courtwood & Clonaslee.

Did Carrig and Riverstown once play separately in two different counties?
If not, it is not the same thing. Moneygall certainly isnt.

AFAIK there is no way for Kyle and Knock to link up without at least one of the clubs being disbanded.
