I think their catchment is New Lodge up to Whitewell but I could be wrong.
Newington, New Lodge, Carrick Hill and surrounding areas.

Johnnies traditionally don’t pull from that area, you’ve Gorts and O’Dees, with O’dees primarily St James area.

The Johnnies way back in my day had Ballymurphy as a juvenile team that joined Commedagh in Championship to form St John’s. They’d big numbers

a strong statement from the newly formed Henry Joys in North Belfast


All support for below Letter very welcome. Pm our page to help but please share far and wide.
A chairde
We have requested to be ratified since February of this year. We have faced our data including bank balances and names leaked to other units, we cant see anywhere in the official guide where by this is standard procedure to follow as only rule 3.3 talks of new clubs.
We have 30 plus hurlers at adult level wishing to go and 30 plus juveniles. We cannot understand why we have to go through other clubs for ratification as 3.3 does not mention this. We have put our hearts and souls into this, from creating community outreach via youth and migrants to getting local business support for rigs.
To date our county board has requested the following.
- get each committee officer trained
- each coach foundation and safeguarding trained
- each coach access ni applied
- evidence of finance to pay fees and purchase equipment
- evidence of a bank account
- list of committee members
- list of players
- letter of support from a local football club
- 5-10 year development plan
- justification for our name which no other club use
- source training venues in the community
- a copy of club constitution
- a financial plan going forward to
- minutes from our agm
- a delegation to meet county board
The above has all been completed at their request, I think this is well and above rule 3.3. our vice chair was now informed that all clubs now have a say in our club.
This decision making process does not seem to be gaa orientated. We do not want anything from Antrim county executive committee other than our ratification to register our games, to make it safe for our community to fully partake.
The camogie club which is part of our one club plan is already registered insured and functioning, their process began months later than our hurlers.
I am a gaa member my entire life, a massive Antrim fan, this is not a line i want to follow, nor did i ever think bringing people into the game would be so difficult. This is not a decision we have taken lightly.
To finish I will quote our chairperson follwing his election win, "Every child in every parish in Antrim should have the opportunity to play our national games and to aspire to play for their club and their county at senior level in our county stadium" Ciaran McCavana 4th December 2018, I whole heartedly agree with his statement, we just simply want ratification and know why there is a hold up.
Is mise le meas
Executive Committee
Henry Joys and Mary Anns GA&CC
IF ONLY THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE A CENTRAL FUNDED PROGRAMME TO HELP... OH WAIT... GAELFAST

You have read that statement? They have everything in place, what remit has Gaelfast on this? They just want ratification to start up.

The next county committee for clubs is on 6th Sept.  If you have all those steps in place , it is a strong starting point

If they have ticked all those boxes then you can only assume they plan to take it seriously, so what's the issue preventing them from being centrally ratified?

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, it’s fairly weakened.
