Will both Colt and Shanahoe clubs continue to exist by fielding football teams? As Errill, Rathdowney, Borris and Kilcotton do?

Seems positive. Well done to those involved.
At least they are going about things the right way. Doesn't appear temporary, kneejerk or reactive.
It does leave Clonad a bit isolated though! Was there ever any talk of them being involved?

No id say if anything they want them gone, only thing stopping it underage this year is the fact Ballypickas are gone from the Raheen set up to form one with Ballinakill, possibly with a few of full amalgamation in time, believe Colt/Shanahoe/Trumera and Clonad are split for some ages where both have numbers which is fair enough. Clonad starting to run out of options if Raheen Parish Gaels falls apart because i doubt Ratheniska/Timahoe would take them again and not a hope of going with Portlaoise

They’d be in shits creek if they all split underage.  Clonad have the majority of underage players  in the Raheen Parish gaels (colt and Shanahoe combined underage). The pickas split leaving 1 or 2 teams short in numbers.
Clonad gone in agreement with Portlaoise College over new AstroTurf pitch use so whether that’ll be another base remains to be seen. Be interesting to see how it works.

That Portlaoise College link could well be Clonad’s last throw of the dice. Hopefully they can rejuvenate & return to something approaching former strength.
Clever move really when you consider Portlaoise have no great presence in that area.

Interesting meeting next week

Where isolated players will be sent to one designated club from now on

The days for example, of a football club having lads particularly at juvenile hurling with 2/3/4 different clubs is going to be at an end.

Does this apply to Juvenile & adult?
And I presume it’s a year on year decision?
Does the player (s) or home club get to decide?

On face value, it’s a reasonable step from a fixtures point of view?

It’s almost a Gaels set up then. Presume it has no impact on ability to play in Leinster Club Championship.

I can see there being a lot of rows over this if its true, take us for example, we have lads currently playing hurling with, abbeyleix, ballypickas, clonad clough/ballacolla, colt/shanahoe and park/ratheniska/timahoe. How do you decide if it's the hurling club or football club as the home club? Imagine trying to explain to the other 5 clubs that lads that have played for them have to go to abbeyleix. Easier solution is to alternate between a hurling only week and football only week for both league and championship
