How did i back track?? Read my last message reply to Gerry again and ull see I wasn't back tracking,I said that they weren't a match for well over half the teams in junior which another poster said they were, so ur talking nonsense with your back tracking. The tones were in huge trouble years ago everyone knows it but they've done brilliant lately rebuilding things

Would D'hill have a big catchment area? Where is their territory? North of the Castletown river out to the Ballymac roundabout?

That's about it Ollie. They are the dead centre of Dundalk, facing the sea, surrounded and pressed by Clans , Roche and Pats. A relatively small population area but had two clubs for a while in 50/60s when Fort Rangers were there. They played in the thenu Pats field in Ravensdale.

They have no schools in their area Ollie. That is a huge obstacle for any club to overcome.

I thought the only border in Fundalk was the one with the Clans and the Gaels?

The Gaels haven't a clue where it is for sure, when they got to the final 3 years ago they put their flags up in the clans and DYI area...

Would the Gaels have a big area?

Close between them and Clans, Gaels area does cover a good area to be fair

Yes agree. Very poor. Great momentum built up at club level with all playing. Perfect preparation for county level. Why stop it. Fringe players and main county players now going back to not really playing. End result, County teamer weaker

Let all clubs continue to play full strength and then county players to keep peeping for county championship. Why stop players playing with their club. Keep club standards high and as competitive as possible. Benefit county players and team

I can't understand the grievance about finishing a league without promotion or relegation with no county players...given the circumstances...and given the fact that this was spelt out months ago as a way to ensure meaningful games for club and county. The last 2 months of club games where great and they have opened some conversations at national level for how a year should be structured. I get the point of keeping county lads sharp through club football but surely the county players need to train together to get fitness levels and sharpness up to intercounty standard, work on tactics etc.
