What's with all the children on here?? We have one lad commenting on stuff got to do with other clubs, then another fella trying to convince this fella that he's from an area that he says he's not from. To be honest knowing both places, I would rather say I'm from Newtown than Drumlish so I don't know why Spinx is saying he's from Drumlish if he's not!! And why has this got your hair up on your back Rhynestonecowboy?
Yis are both acting like big babies!

Replying To Spinx:  "We played a challenge against Killoe in Monaduff. An off the ball incident happened on the field and a row broke out. It got out of hand and a few words and pushing resulted on the stand side. A member of the Killoe committee at the time was involved and ended up pushing a female from Drumlish who is a part of my family. She fell to the ground as a result and suffered a cut and bruising. It all settled down the but an apology never came from that individual or the club towards that person. That is why I have a chip on my shoulder with Killoe"
All a bit silly to hold a grudge for long over a bit of pushing and shoving!!

You'll be glad to know Oddball, I'm finished with answering questions about my personal life to that fool.
Only one child on this forum and I'm sure he'll be back spouting rubbish to try and get another reaction, but I will not be firing back. It takes a bigger man to walk away and that's what I'll be doing.

I know the last thing Longford needs is to lose another club but would it make sense for Killashee to amalgamate with Cashel at senior level? They have been amalgamated at underage since about 1998. I haven't heard anything out of Killashee but if things haven't improved player wise since last year, then surely they should consider it. They might actually make a strong Intermediate team out of the 2 clubs.

A team who won 2 intermediates in the last 3 years joining up with another intermediate team doesn't sound too pleasing to other clubs
One year lads gone on j1s and a few lads emmigrating but every club has to deal with that

I think Spinx needs to calm down and take a deep breath. He's embarrassing himself now.
The terms "lol" and "haha" in earlier replies have quickly descended into insults. I can only assume that he's annoyed at having his cover blown.
When Killoe got the ban a few years ago Spinx was one of the posters who couldn't contain his delight. Many of his comments have been anti-Killoe. But I'm glad to see that he has finally admitted to having " a chip on my shoulder with Killoe."
I couldn't care less where he's from. Many other people have noticed his pro-Clonguish posts here and called him out on it. It's very obvious. As was his over-compensating, letting on he knew so much about his 'club' when he hadn't a clue.
What I particularly don't like is someone trying to stir up trouble where none exists. True Killoe GAA people have no gripe with Clonguish or Fr Manning Gaels and I'm sure the reverse is true.
No Gaels supporter I know would make disparaging remarks about possibly their greatest player ever either.

Kilashee won intermediate in 2020 2021 and cashel hammered "your" team last year lol why would they need to amalgamate to be strong for that. I shouldnt feed the troll!!

How about Drumlish and Killoe amalgamating. There seems to be a lot of love between the clubs judging by all these posts. Might be a chance for Drumlish to compete at Senior level consistently.
Maybe amalgamations are the way.
Works in Kerry with Junior and Intermediate players able to compete in Seior championship.

Its all getting abit silly now lads!! im all for the craic but lets not let it get to far!! Spinx is a decent Longford GAA follower, and regardless of where he is from its only a bit of craic!! I dont agree on the Kilashee and Cashel comment at all, both clubs are strong intermediate contenders at the moment! every club has to deal with players not commiting and emigration, lets not lose more clubs!! its a struggle as it is! the intermediate championship of 2022 was pretty decent with each team bar Legan with a great change of winning it! lets leave the past in the past, 1997 is a long time ago lads!!

You are being tongue in cheek but this is a good idea in my opinion. Something has to change drastically if we are to improve Longford football, nothing has worked for almost 140 years so why not follow the lead of the most successful GAA county! Carrickedmond/Kenagh did this in the 70s and were unlucky to run into the great Clonguish team of that era as well as a strong Slashers side. Exposing the young players of the junior and intermediate clubs to senior football is the only way to develop them

Back in the 90's for a few years we had 6 intermediate and 6 junior teams. One from each grade amalgamated to play in a Senior B Championship with the winner of that going on to play in the Senior Championship.

A max of 3 teams coming together, with no more than 2 Intermediate teams being part of it could work very well and be competitive. The 90s teams were farcical because of the restriction on their makeup. The Intermediate and junior championships would have to be a shorter format due to all the games. Like a lot of things nothing will come of it!

Junior championship at minute is not fit for purpose

Colmcille looked for postponement, St Columbas unwilling to defer the final . Game was awarded to St Columbas by CCCC

We weren't unwilling; it's just that we weren't asked.

Did Colmcille seek a postponement and County Board said no, so Colmcille then conceded the game?
