GAA Discussion / Re: When will club football start?

All adults to be vaccinated in the North by end of May.  Sports possibly back at end of March, will we be allowed to start before the 26 though.  Who knows

With the new age groups a lot of the minor team wont be playing McCrory.  Remember too most east down players go to schools that are not as football specific as those in Newry

With the vaccinations in the North massively outstripping the south we could well be allowed back long before them,  but would the GAA allow it or will they go with an all Ireland approach.

If Tally is out for 12 weeks surely we need a new manager,  he can't attend training and it only starts when we go back.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Down / Re: What to do about Belfast
« on: December 28, 2020, 11:14:20 PM »
A few points,  Carryduff and Bredagh know exactly the population in their area and are currently the 2 biggest GAA clubs, membership wise,  in the North.  Both are and St Paul's are involved in Gaelfast and I assume E Belfast  will become involved as they introduce juvenile teams.  Down have for years ignored us but the growing population is brilliant for us and the county. Both St.  Paul's and E.  Belfast have the potential to be were Carryduff and Bredagh are now in 20 years.  The potential for more clubs up here is strong too but they will come out of need not just be invented, it will be a long time before one is set up between Carryduff and and Bredagh for instance. 
There are still parents who bring their kids to play in Antrim even though they live in Down and that isn't going to change, same as kids live and play in different counties in and around Newry.

Whatever the team I think we can beat Fermanagh,  then there is Cavan who are not world beaters.  Let's get behind them.. Down Abu

Clubs don't close down due to Covid.  The PHA make the call on what is deemed a close and a casual contact. Individuals are isolated rather than whole clubs.

The club made that decision but the club was not forced to close Down.

Castlewellan definitely did recently.....

Downjim the reason why every team in every club has covid officers is to allow everyone to act quickly.

The GAA already made the big call there. Itís play on while you can, and donít be a silly bugger when you cannot.

What Iím not sure about is, when championship comes around and a team cannot fulfil: a) postponement, b) walkover or c) reintroduce a loser from the previous round.

Iím hoping itís not a).

I'd say walk-over - time is of the essence.  Only problem is if some club goes down the legal/court route.  That would f**k everything up.

I think GAA HQ would need to make statement shortly clarifying this, or they might leave it up to each county board.

Only problem with this is if some club player tests positive, there's a good chance the club will keep quiet about it and play on regardless.
This has implications which could lead to someone losing their life,  if a club does something like that then the suspensions and punishment must be massive. 
I hope no one is that stupid
