Talk that they might be up by Stormont. Growing ‘green’ in east Belfast and a more liberal Protestant community will hopefully see them develop. Better to be in the Down league rather than Antrim. Imagine some of the hallions they’d come up against the boys from The Short Strand or the like!!

No team in the Strand.Used to be the Seanie Martins so they may get some of them to join up.

Surely St Malachys would pick them up though?

I'd have thought one would have been for further up the newtownards road etc.

St Malachy’s would pick up any Strand folks

Maybe they’d rather play in their own county now though.

Good point.

On that does anyone on here know of lads playing in 2 counties in Belfast, say football for 1 and hurling for another. One of the clubs would need not provide for either code

Bredagh and carryduff are still Down hurling.

Antrim leagues now have derry, tyrone and down teams in them. I'm not sure about any other counties? (Armagh haven't any in it do they?)

It's more like an ulster league so it's where they play championship that counts.
