Derry / Re: Derry Club Football & Hurling

Did a search for it Shawshank but couldn't find anything on google.  Any chance of a brief summary please ?

I'd imagine it echoed his mate Brolly's article a while back - Derry GAA is in a bad state, money has been squandered with a wee touch of "no games in Celtic Park" thrown in for good measure.  He might have a lot of valid points but i'd say he will come across as bitter as he apparently got overlooked for the minor gig.

Good Club man ... good County man.  Was overlooked for  the Under 20 job.  Fergal P has every right to feel aggrieved worked hard with the U21's for 2 years and a very important player on our 1993 winning team.  Deserves a lot more respect than he was given
He always has respect, good GAA man.

i see harte has kicked off a shitstorm on social media after leading the anti abortion campaign in the name of the gaa. the man just cant help himself. and it only 4 weeks to a huge first round championship game.

The group said it "respects and cherishes women." There wasn't much respect for this woman.

Ffs you love posting this story. As a teacher I’m asked to provide references quite often. And on a number of occasions this has been for ex students who find themselves in court. Am I supposed to find out the details of the court case, decide whether the person is guilty or not and decide if I will write the reference? Or do I write the reference honestly based on my experiences of the person?
Yes of course - I think I'd have a good look at the details of the crime first. The victim of that horrific attack was very distraught about the reference. Unbelievable you would give a reference to someone convicted of a crime and not find out what the crime was.
You are 100% correct. Any teacher would be duty bound to check detail first and get advice.

Fair play to the minors, showed great spirit to come back not only at halftime but after the Monaghan goals.  Great game of football, subs had a huge impact. Derry maybe sneaked the win but was worth it to see the Monaghan number 15 at the end.

Aidan McLaughlin as part of a backroom team is hardly an issue. Did anyone have an issue with Gavin McGeehan being involved with last years team? (someone who had a similar coaching role with either Ulster or Derry GAA as far as I know).

Anyone who has seen any of Campbell's teams play before could not be surprised there was no score in their last game until 27 minutes in. It's an absolute joke that he was appointed by our county board to develop our underage players.

I see no problem with someone like Aidy being involved in a fairly minor role in the set up, maybe gathering a bit of experience as he goes. I would though question letting a man who played ultra defensive/negative football at his last 4 jobs (Steelstown, Castledawson, Glentes and Slaughtmanus) with little or no success manage our best underage players.

Cant understand why Campbell was appointed either ....

The other fellas are good coaches with Fabian and Ronan also having had Club management experience.   Aidy McLaughlin (he is from Craigbane isn't he ?) was a very good player and was on  the County Senior panel around about 2010, was unfortunate with injuries and was working away from home a lot.  Good honest committed Clubman and still youngish

The question isn’t why was he appointed? It’s who was he appointed ahead of? Was there a queue of high quality applicants? There should be a good team there but Monaghan look to have an outstanding team given they stuffed both tyrone and donegal on the way to the ulster minor league.


Did a bit of asking, he works with the Goalkeepers, so I assume he isnt involved with the tactical side of things.
Ah now I see where the senior team gets it from - goalkeepers don't do tactics. Explains a lot!!

Well done to ardmore this week, putting up a good score against Moneymore. Unlucky to Doire Colmcille who only scored a point against the Wolfhounds. Hopefully Joe.ie don’t do a report on them like they did to Ardmore.
After only two games, the 3 'city' clubs in Division 3 have a combined score difference of minus 111, just to clarify, that is minus one hundred and eleven points.  Fair play to them for continuing to field.
With regard to Brolly, he is a self-centered, egotistical, arrogant amadán who looks down his nose at genuine ordinary GAA folk and thinks it is ok to do so on national tv.  His charm and luck will run out soon, sometimes I fear for his sanity.

Why are the ‘city’ teams in apostrophes punk?
Mainly because some GAA people view Ardmore as a city club, most Ardmore members do not. What do you think yourself punk?

I thought you were going elsewhere with that.

The fact that you brought this demeaning fact to light, still looks like you have a grudge.
Your sarcastic comment re Doire Cholmcille shows you definitely have a 'city' grudge.  Anyhow, what would your answer be to the question you didn't answer?!

Brolly is a clown, a well paid one at that. How many Derry National League matches has he seen this year? Ultra defence?!  If we did have a defensive strategy we would still be in Division 3. Glad he mentioned Cahir's article though, since he copied a fair chunk of it! The theory for selling Celtic Park is a dangerous one for Dungiven folk, next for the chop would therefore be An Abhainn Bheag. Enjoyed Joe's donkey reference mainly because of the 1997 Cavan banner - "Brolly is a donkey...."!

Bright evenings, spring in the air, under 16 team at pitch looking forward to a match, the other club couldn't fulfill the fixture.  Why?  Because they had to go to Mass! All is not as healthy in club football as some in Derry would have you believe.
Good grief.

VALID enough rerason in my opinion maybe they should have given better notice but people are entitled to follow their beliefs
Do you think they were at Mass?!  Still believe in fairies?  5 different clubs, at the start of the club season conceded matches in the last 10 days.  Not rearranged, conceded. When clubs are honest, especially with themselves, then the inflated county expectations will be more realistic.

didnt say the players what if the managers were at mass end of the day it was an u16 freindly
Since when did the county board start organising friendly matches?

Been seeing a lot of silly chat online and people using the old North / Derry sh*t as excuses for the apathy towards the county team.

South derry people complaining about matches being held in Celtic Park and Owenbeg  is just an excuse imo for why people wont go support Derry. As is North derry people complaining that North derry clubs are overlooked.

Derry get support when the team is going well and don't when they aren't everyone knows that. But i do agree that games should be spread out like Monaghan do, especially when we are at a low ebb and also playing in Div 3 and 4 against teams that have lesser travelling support then Div 1 and 2 teams.

I think the county board are a fair bit responsible for how alot of players have been treated pretty much since Paddy Bradley wasn't asked back, how many players have left with sour tastes in their mouths, players being dropped from panels for playing for their clubs, for going to america. Some not even being asked or told why.  I know it's hard to keep everyone happy all of the time.

We needed a big name appointment this year to pull everything together again but we didn't and are now rock bottom.
Agree 100%.

Lads don't feed the troll he hasn't a clue . . . wouldn't surprise me if it was another tfal account!!
just stating my opionin when ive seen him in club he is exectioal just feel he is out of his depth in county along with the two screen men in the seniors young araon bradley deserves his place on the panel before young mcwilliams who was previously droped at the start of the year along with a few other players . but mcerlain hadnt the balls to stick to his guns when the sponsor / main that pays him his wages told him to take the older players back and that is coming from within the derry camp.
You are entitled to your opinion but that doesn't mean you are right.  I have seen all of Derry's matches in 2018 and Bradley has been one of the team's top performers. To say he is not county standard depends on your standards. To try and say he is not current Derry County standard would require a visit to Specsavers ..... immediately!
