Lovely people out in Stonetown straddling the Wee County/Monaghan border.

Amazing that they managed to win 3 senior championships so, let alone a Leinster Club championship on top of that.

Agree with other Westmeath posters re Loughnavalley, they have struggled for numbers recently I think.

Replying To Horsebox77:  "I'd say Knockanure in Kerry would claim this title."
Would Waterville's pick not be very small, it's in the parish of Dromid but Waterville itself is tiny, if you blink you are over the bridge into Sneem/Derrynane (and Templenoe - for underage) catchment area.

Mullinalaghta has the smallest geographic footprint in the county (slightly smaller than Ballymore I reckon), but I would bet that Legan Sarsfields is a smaller club in terms of number of members and players.

Would Cuchulainn Gaels not be the smallest club? Definitely the youngest, the rovers have a junior

Replying To The_Fonz:  "Would have thought CFCW would have pulled most of that area around Pollard, Ringtown and Collinstown. Ballycomoyle is very small and close to border with Longford and Meath. Loughnavalley would probably shade it. Stuck between Ballymore, Shandonagh, Milltown and Malachys. A lot of clubs competing for players in a small area."
Ballycomoyle has all of Collinstown, goes from starts between Delvin and Collinstown, right around by brownstown and the meath border all the way over to castlepollard and everything in between

Ballymore have the pick of Granard parish even though only a handful of townlands would play with them

Would most of Brownstown not play with St.Pauls?

Good shout for it. Not only the youngest club in Louth but also the most northerly club in the Wee County.
