Ardoyne is very nearby. Why not play for them?

All teams that meet the criteria should be afforded the same opportunity to develop a club, east Belfast Gaels prime example

That's a poor comparison. East Belfast GAA is an attempt to tap into a new market. New Lodge have an under utilized GAA club on their doorstep.
I appreciate that there is an argument there but when you are ratifying Laochra Loch Lao and Colin Gaels in West Belfast, itís fairly weakened.

Laochra Loch Lao, ratified for similar reasons as East Belfast. That being, a unique concept (all operations through the medium of Irish). Colin Gaels a different matter and yes, probably comparisons with the New Lodge situation.

My concern is that there is an upward trend of amalgamations involving even large clubs in Belfast. Maybe there is room for another in the north of the city. Ardoyne is right there and well established. The GAA playing population of  the New Lodge could readily be facilitated there.

Is East Belfast not different as it's down county board?

It is great to see another club wanting to grow, but is there not a wider question needing to be asked when we are seeing more and more clubs amalgamating up through the ages groups. Clubs that would be considered to be well established clubs and cant even get 15 of their own kids out to field a team?

does this not exacerbate this specific situation even further?

Pearseís as well up the road. Did I hear a couple of clubs up the glens closed for COVID?

Dunloy should win the senior Championship. Intermediate - as per usual anyone could win it. Just look at last year. Creggan or Sarsfields for me. Cushendun a good outside bet. Glenarm for Junior.

Two stand out fixtures are Dunloy v Cushendall and Creggan v Sarsfields.

So far thatís a pretty good set of predictions. Impressive getting the draw right. Still some results I donít see on intermediate.

Yeah the draw is some call, by all accounts a fair result.

Think Creggan v Sarsfields is the only one missing: 3.19 to 0.18 in favour of Kickhams. Creggan clearly finished messing about in the league and straight into Championship mode with aplomb.

St Paul's sucker punched Cloughmills ......9 in it for Cloughmills at half time.
