photos are great, but the content of the reports are terrible compared to Cahir and Conan. Mal's style of writing is brutal.

I dont buy it anymore

I'm sure they will miss your purchase each week. Mal ignore the begrudgers, there are some factual mistakes that I am sure are a result of who ever it is you get information from each club PRO etc, but you never said you were in for the 'Man Bookers' prize. There is massive coverage of all the leagues in football, hurling and camogie. The small mindedness of small people never surprises me.

Would agree that the reports aren't as good or extensive as previous years.

Were they not taken over a few years back by the same crew that owns the Irish News? Running on a very very tight budget by all accounts

I remember on here a few years ago people were slagging Cahair and Co. to the point where they came on here and responded. We don't know how lucky we are with the County Derry Post. We probably have the best club coverage in the country and yet people still aren't happy. They are running on a tight budget and the content is great considering this. As for Mal, met him a couple times and he seemed like a genuine man, loved his GAA and he has been involved with fairly successful teams (what part he played I'm not sure). Probably has more of a clue than some of the keyboard warriors on here.

Completely agree we have the best club coverage about from a local paper but there is no doubt it was better a couple of years back. Saffron Gael website do a good job also for anyone with an interest in Antrim club football, extensive club reports and pictures however it's just a website and doesn't come in newspaper form.

Agree 200 %.

f**k lads. What a great job the CDP does. I wish day buck I could read it every week, but I canít. They give the club game a great platform. Donít know how lucky he are. How many of you would know anything about club footballers before the CDP began to do their business? Mal has continued this.

Mal does an absolute outstanding job. Puts his heart an soul into it. I sent him a couple of reports over the years and he helped me promote the campaign of GAA Jerseys for Palestine throughout the county.

Is this league cup going to turn out to be a complete farce?  Looks like Lavey has conceded all their games already!?
