GAA Congress comes up with some good results but some poor decisions too.. now into March - hopefully not long until we see action on the pitches again.

Outstanding article today in Irish News from Jack Devanney.
He has shown great leadership  here and going out demanding a return to games in Northern Ireland before Republic returns. This makes sense as opposed to the romantic views from Tyrone. Our vaccination progress here and the First Minister allowing restrictions to be lifted soon makes it a very sensible and real prospect of games being played soon. The kids especially need back and let's hope this does not become political as we have different laws in NI so lets hope Down moves on. We led before in relation to the ground breaking rule 21 change .Jack Devanney won't be held back by the backward folk.
Even at congress he spoke very well and now could we be beginning to see the emergence of a potential GAA Presidential candidate in next election.
Proud of Jack's leadership.
Let's get behind him on this.

There are plenty of proven liars native to this county so he's in good company.

Unfortunately I dont see the GAA allowing the northern counties to begin games. But kids should be back playing or training in some form.

Yewtree, having read your post about honest Jack Devanney I now am convinced you are on drugs.This is a person who has told blatant lies about organising a training session in the abbey contrary to co vid regulations , how would he make a good GAA President when he canít conduct himself in the proper manner as Down GAA chairman.
Keep taking the tabs.

A little bit of good news with a return to the pitch on the horizon, hopefully players have been looking after themselves and the club coaches take care in how they plan this return. It's one thing going running over the last few months, another thing altogether to be out on the field twisting, turning and playing ball.

It leaves around 7 weeks before the planned start of the ACFL so hopefully plenty of time for players to get up to speed and hit the ground running and provide us with some positive football action to talk about.

And more importantly the young players have something to enjoy after what has been an immensely challenging year for them with school closures, kid's entertainment facilities closed and sport put on hold. Let's hope once we return, we can finally look forward from all of this!

Does anyone know the date that pitches are open? Do they open up on the 12th just when training is allowed?

I thought I seen something about 1st April but havenít been able to find an article the past few days that gives a date of them opening

See Cahir O'Kane grovelling big time in the Irish News today. A lot of these reporters forget that our games provide them with their living. His article was cringing.

Great episode of laochra gael on tg4 tonight. Pete mcgrath is some man for one man, he brought some great days to the county. He's given unreal service to Down gaa and gaa as a whole.
