Hello to all, so I came across the Antrim GPA by way of Facebook. Formerly I lived in Antrim, Carrickfergus, now living in Canada, and would very much like to keep in touch and support the club. If you could send me some information and add me to your newsletter, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you Manny

Even though the fixtures aren't out yet for the new Div 3/4 can we assume the dates of the matches will be the same as previously listed?
Details are now out regarding Div 3/4

I agree with you admin,Sundays match against Longford is a huge match for our senior footballers. I would say its far more important than the championship so lets get as many supporters along to Corrigan as we can. In a tight game the roar of the crowd can make all the difference.
Its undoubtably the biggest match of the year for our footballers.
It would be tremendous to consolidate our position in Divison 3!
The lads need the 16th man. Lets make our way to Corrigan Park.

ANY WORD ON DIV 3/4 FIXTURES you said on 24/03/17 that would be out very soon ? 1st match 12/04/17 is that still on ? people have changed work shifts etc for this fixture can you confirm ? im sure the Monday meeting should have the answers to these questions
The CCCC are working on the fixtures.

Was in Armagh last night to watch a great display by the Saffrons. Was looking forward to next Sunday's winner takes all game against Longford however me and other club players will miss the big game due to club league games next week. Surely these club games should be played before or after the county game to ensure maximum support at Corrigan Park. Can common sense prevail and sort this out please.
Yes, if the games can be arranged for earlier in the day and agreed between both teams than that will be fine. Contact the CCCC directly with agreement.
It would be great to have a large support at this Sundays game in what is a massive game of our Senior Footballers.

any date when new fixture list will be available for div3/4 hurling ... looking to book holidays totally unfair that we don't have any dates of even confirmation of home matches to get pitches sorted
They are due out very soon.

In response to the "St. Paul's find it below themselves to play in Div 4" comment. I find that comment very offensive and misleading. Im not one for tit-for-tat, but feel obliged to defend my club. A proposal was put forward, and as per our right, we didn't agree. We put forward another proposal which thankfully was agreed. On that note if our proposal hadnt been accepted, we would have been more than willing to play in division 4.

Changing Hurling leagues just before they are planned to start and after fixtures had been provide is unprofessional to say the least. Let's call this as it is, Div 3 and 4 have now been lumped together because Naomh Pól thought is was below themselves to play div 4 hurling. As a player in my later years with my own club Naomh Eanna we struggled to get out of div 4 , always seeming to be one game short of winning the league, we built the juvenile structures and over time it started to pay off, we got promoted to div 3 and won it in 2015, but the county restructured the league so no promotion to Div 2, last year we we fell just short of promotion to div 2, but felt senior hurling was going in the correct direction with reaching IMH final last year. Now due to county change of mind we are back at the bottom tier of Hurling in Antrim. Where there will be teams who are struggling to keep hurling alive getting beat by cricket scores. The new county board when lobbying support stated that it would be a level playing field for all, it seems to be that certain individuals in clubs, who wouldn't know one end of a Hurl from the other have homed there skills to manipulate county meetings, it is up to the county Chairperson to be the gate keeper for all clubs not just the boy's in the know? And for my final say , over the years as a club delegate and a club chairperson , i always thought the county convention was were these changes we mandated to take place , but i am sure one of the rule book brigade will be able to highlight some line in the official guide to prove me wrong.

Really disappointed to hear a 17 team hurling league of Div 3 & 4 teams. Complete nonsense. We now have seasoned Div 2 (last year) and IHC clubs playing against JHC teams in a league, including teams only recently formed. Some teams are going to get hammered. What purpose will that serve anyone? How will that develop players especially those who aspire to play county level, other than make them feel good? The Jim Nelson (a St Pauls stalwart) review of 3 years ago sought to create competitive leagues and did so successfully. You therefore had to fight for every point to gain promotion or survive in the league. In Div 3 the intensity of the hurling had to be maintained. They were working well. The St Pauls proposal bins that report. I understand that most Div 1 teams abstained from the vote. That is sad. In the county we should be seen as a hurling family all looking after each other for the betterment of hurling. Abstaining indicates total apathy for what goes on outside of the elite clubs. PS. Someone will come up with the brainwave to change the leagues next year to avoid teams getting scalped….

Fair play for the intriguing tweet in relation to the breaking news. It got me. Keep up the great work. I hope the golf classic goes well for the hurlers.
It did get a lot of interest.
More importantly- get yourself a four ball booked or sponsor the team on the day.

Find it hard to see how our county hurling manager can say that hurling is dying in West Belfast, when St.Marys are now into an All-Ireland Final having beaten every North Antrim opposition comfortably, also rossa and Stjohns have won numerous minor titles in previous years and more recently Stjohns winning an U21 title. This is extremely insulting to proud hurling men in west Belfast, there may be a lot of kids but there is a lot of other hobbies to taken up in Belfast. Think coaches in Belfast deserve credit, ok it hasn't became evident at senior yet but it'll come! Tus maith leat na-obire
Sambo's interview was open & honest. Your homing in on a negative. Antrim hurling is currently not were we all would like it to be. It is also there for a reason.
The tide is turning - our Senior hurlers are working extremely hard and have heart and will be successful.
Well done to St Mary's this weekend.
I wouldn't see it as an insult at all.
You know what your club and other clubs have achieved in Belfast and there have been successes as you have indicated.
The stats pointed out by Sambo in relation to children hurling in Belfast is a reality.
Keep the good work up ODR.

will the u21 game be shown on periscope?
No. Ulster GAA don't permit live periscoping of the U21 championship
