Did I pick it up correctly that Ronan Devlin is employed as GAA Development Officer at St Marys Magherafelt? Does any other school have one of these? They're doing well in a time where school budgets are being ripped apart.

Didn't hear that but he could be allocated to the school by the county board or Ulster Council as a coach as part of the wider scheme for coaches into schools across the country.  No school could seriously afford such a post.

From the Derry thread

Yes. Great win for the convent boys in the McRory cup. Some investment to bring in young Devlin to train them. Have to give it to Derry County Board too. I hear they pay half of his salary. Not too often I praise them lol. St Pius's will be kicking themselves today. Heard they  had the chance to have Devlin at their school for football and turned him down. Bad decision there boys. Yous could be bringing the McLarnon cup home too.

That was a tremendous game today, thoroughly enjoyable and full of incident and great score-taking.

St. Mary's play a lovely brand of football.

Can't beat a bit class up front and big Small certainly has that.

Magherafelts defence certainly won them that game. Serious amount of close range blocks and keeper saves. If colmans had got a goal on that 1st attack it would have been a real blow to SMG. Also have no idea how Rian didnt get a penalty in the 2nd half.

After watching the turgid affair in Omagh for the U21 game, I was worried the MacRory was going to be another defence-fest. Thank fook it wasn't.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Congrats Screenexile. Great win!

Surely not the Screenexile who plied his trade in Perth about 10 years ago?
To find his equal an Irishman is forced to talk to God!

That's a quick turnaround for St Mary's. Seems to be a little disrespectful to the competition to be playing an All Ireland semi final on a Wednesday afternoon. I'm sure there's plenty of ex- Marys folk who would have loved to have gone to the game. Best of luck to the lads anyway!
That was never a square ball!!

Hopefully they're still up for it after their celebrations at the weekend. The son was telling me that they didn't lose any players with the lower age boundary.

You sure that still applies? Thought it was done away with. Be shocked if anyone gets near Killarney but good luck to SMG.

Maghera play Dingle in the A.I Rannafast final on Saturday too. 7 Glen starters. Good luck lads!

Saw it with this title so thought it still applied -  All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Hogan Cup (Under 18.5 A Football). If you were born in July you'd be over 18.5. Maybe it has been done away with though.
