We had a system that was working well and kept fellas playing until they were 21. Many had passed through college before they were overage. It was win-win for GAA clubs.
It was a simple system of 12/14/16/18/21.

One rule fucked it all up- changing the age that you were allowed play adult at from 16 to 17. (Are you listening L. Oí Neill?).

Now we are pussyfooting around trying to rectify a self inflicted problem.
Some counties have changed like us to 11/13/15/17....some havenít. Itís a joke trying to get challenge games.

Agreed, itís a balls of a situation. But I do believe that if a fella isnít involved in an adult team of some sort by 19, then youíve nearly lost him already.

You probably have, but the aim and ethos is community involvement and fellas who drifted a bit at 18/19 were often coaxed back at 20/21 to play with their mates.
The implications that ďdo-gooderĒ decision has had is very frustrating.
Even our feile teams- win their division in Laois & no match until the National competition
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......
