Meanwhile Kilkenny bring in DJ to freshen things up & a new 10 year sponsor for Nowlan Park. In Galway they start all over again, the level of politics & incompetence is staggering but no surprise as its entrenched for decades & not even a clear out will sort it as the loyal Lieutenant's who closed the eyes will be next to be installed. Can't see anyone being stupid enough to hand over their hard earned cash in sponsorship to them & have their name associated with their incompetence or the next scandal to break.The whole thing is toxic & rotten & has been for decades as some people were allowed to do what they liked at all levels, good people walked away.

Replying To kazoochka:  "At underage Caltra are with Kilkerrin Clonberne i think, but i think at Minor this is simply Caltra. The Salthill minor team is a bit of a superteam. Basically returned the entire panel from last years county winning team. 3 lads starting on the Salthill senior team plus Tomo Culhane who probably would be if he was eligible age wise. Lads on Galway minor team this year (u17) are on Salthills bench (U18) to give an idea of the depth. Good to see Caltra back at that level as their senior team last year was maybe the worst team ive ever seen at Senior and it would be a real shame if they drifted down the divisions. They must be good as the Claregalway team they beat in the North final and the Northern Gaels team Claregalway beat are all very good teams."
I don't think they are amalgamated with clonberne. I think its more of a hurling club their minor football are joined with.. It could be Pierces. Not sure

Replying To Donaldtrump:  "They're not joined with Ballygar nor anyone for that matter, they have lads on permission to play from clubs with no teams. 4 Pearses lads on permission to play (Plenty of Ballymacward lads would've played football with Caltra down the years). There's two St Brendan's U16s on the panel with the minors as they've no team at U16/U18 this year. But 11 of the team that started the north board final were Caltra lads. You may want to note that Ballygar's two best minors Karl Healy and Mícheál Flynn played with Northern Gaels this year."
Well as I said it's a very good caltra team. I knew they were either joined or had lads playing from other clubs. I would hope that having those lads playing is not the cause of yer 2 best minors going to northern Gaels. I would fancy Caltra to win A final. Should be a cracking day in Tuam.

moc.dna i've learnt in life is that good people don't walk away, its up to us to leave the place in a better state than we received it.
