Sadly mistaken ask anyone in the know and they’ll tell you laverty Donnelly county board coaches have done all the training and coaching and dom looks after the selection side of things. Smart on his end but paying coaches for schools is a bad precedent to have started IMO
Pretty sure Magherafelt won the MacRory a couple of years ago and they had your fella Devlin from Ballinderry in training them. As far as I know he was the 1st coach employed by a school to help improve their football at all levels

Coaches have been paid to go into primary schools for years.
The days of teachers taking teams solo is well and truly over.
It's getting harder and harder to get teachers to take teams for many various reasons especially at the secondary level.
Monaghan and Cavan have been sending their county development coaches into secondary schools for a number of years now and it's seen an increase in schools teams winning Ulster schools titles.
Derry have obviously being following the same model with Magherafelt and I would assume with the Derry city team that played in the MacLarnon final today. Kerry county board have also been doing it for years .
Fermanagh I assume send the county underage coaches into St Michaels as these are funded by Club Eirne and St Michaels is by far the most important school in terms of county development.
Non-issue

Ballybay, Co Monaghan are the winners of the senior All Ireland Community College (Rice Cup) against Boherbue.
An incredible achievement for the college. The game went into ET and Ballybay from a position of 3 points down finished strongly to win by 2 points.
