Face doesn't fit?

We ( GAA) all are signed up and signed off - governed by policies of fairness and being inclusive- non discriminatory on a range of principles? But all that goes out the window when we want our man in ; we want that young player to play for us and so on... Play by the book - that is why it is there..

I would. Like to take this opportunity to say that I have never heard of county officers acting in the way they have concerning the elections at the upcoming convention. It is not right and I hope the clubs do not respond to their wishes. Well done Jim Murray you have kept your dignity when others have not

I agree with sentiments expressed by sideline view. People are elected to do a job - to 'represent' or maybe 're-present' - it is not about a self selecting grouping after they are in post. Each person is just in post on a voluntary basis for 1 year and there is a democratic means set down to give us the team to represent us. No that is bad form- bad practice. And it is happening at club level also. Was it called 'group think'?

I would just like to pay tribute to Jim Murry, who has resigned as County Dev Officer for his many years of hard work of Antrim GAA, this follows a message sent out on behalf of our County's Officers, prompting Clubs to vote at Convention for another candidate. Do those at the top in our County not trust the Club's to make their own minds up without such intervention, it seems to me that our current County Board should be mindful that the GAA is a grounds up organisation, and in many cases do not like to be pushed in certain directions by those who think they know better, the good will shown to Saffron Vision at last years AGM will soon disapate if those in power start to dictate to Club's. Personally i feel that our County Officers should not be getting involved in our democratic process by favouring one candidate over another, which in effect underminds the other, not only have they done this with the position of Club Dev Officer, hence Jim Murray resigation, but thay have also named those they wish to see successful in the vote for the Ulster Delegate's job. This type of interjection by our County Board leaves me with a uneasy feeling and asking the question " Is there any room for a dissenting voice at the center of Antrim GAA". If this is the case and there are no dissenting voices at the top table in Antrim, where are the Checks and Balances, and the accountability in the day to day running of our County. This is not an attack on the Current County Board, it is more of a reminder that Club's can only be lead by concensus. The essence of good leadership is knowing when to step forward with opinions, but also knowing when to step back and not express any opinion.

Interesting comments for consideration by GAA President re playing of National Anthem and flying of Tricolour. I don't know what the percentage is when there is neither flag nor anthem played at gaelic games?

I had the privilege of attending the Clash of the Saffrons in the Devenish last night. It was a very professionally organised and highly enjoyable evening with many action packed and exciting fights. Congratulations to all who contributed to the successful event and it was a very positive showcase for the county and again brilliantly promoted and covered by the county PRO. Well done to all concerned.


It was a fantastic evening!

Thank you to all who attended and supported the event.

This is the time of year when there will be a lot of talk about recruiting team managers? Would there be any truth in thinking that as regards hurling there isn't necessarily a big pool of expertise about? Maybe clubs in general need to take it on board to get more of their coaches up to a standard by availing of whatever courses are offered through the GAA? Or maybe there are more than enough ?

Ok

Moltai (1) 

The Motion propose the following changes to the Antrim Hurling Leagues for the year beginning 2017. 

The main adaptation to the league would see the creation of 3 x 10 team divisions (Divisions 1-3) and a 7 team Division (Division 4). In Divisions 1 thru 3 each team would play twice home and away versus each of the other 9 teams, totaling 18 games 

In division 4 each team would play each of the other 6 teams 3 times; Home and away and then a split of 3 home v 3 away. To be drawn randomly/decided upon using a fair basis such as using the first stage league standings. This would total 18 games also.

Well done to Cultural Officer on organising a brilliant County Scor Final. All the competitors were a credit to their clubs and Moneyglass were great hosts. Great to see new clubs involved and hopefully it will go from strength to strength.

Im sure the clubs that took part will definitely be participating next year. 

The event was we organised by Bronagh as usual. Lets support our teams in Ulster.
