Replying To Square_B:  "Oh mother of god... I can't help you if you can't see why it is necessary to invest money in the county setup and the GAA in the county in general. Do you even have any idea how much it costs to run GAA in the county on a annual basis? If the clubs shouldn't be asked to contribute who else would you expect to? Would you be happy with county teams going round the place like paupers? Is that what you want? That you wouldn't want the best for club men & women representing their county tells me all I need to know about you. And there's lots like you round the place who want everything but won't pay for it. A fairly pathetic attidute to be honest."
Again you should read you own messages. Lots that want everything but wont pay for it. A fairly pathetic attitude to be honest ( as you said ) EXAMPLE would be county Board. Of course I want the best for or county men and ladies. Our CB have refused to let our county ladies into the COE the last few winters but let in out side clubs. Ladies have to make do with whatever club will accommodate them. Is that what u think is best? You must be one of those that just sit about and sponge of the the tax payer. Of course you need to invest and progress but in the right way. If money was spent in Carrick / ballnamore / cloone we would now have 3 county grounds for training and games but instead we have 3 pitches that just about playable and 2 good pitches in the COE that can't hold game. That not progress or good investment. And our county team has by no way made any improvements

I don't like having a cut at the county board but we are the only county in the country of Ireland to have postponed a semi final championship game (Annaduff vs Allen Gaels) No plan B even though the dog on the street knew that Cloone wouldn't be playable and yet one of the best surfaces in the county was free ie Kiltubrid. Maybe I m missing something so feel free to correct me.

So you are now arguing against the Centre Of Excellence!!

Other counties without one would love to have it.I wish it was bigger,but unfortunately the funds are not there.

Competitive games can't be played there because of the Planning condition.

You're a gas person. By the tone and the lack of coherent posts you've put up here, I'd be fairly sure that I'll more tax than you'll ever pay in your lifetime (whatever that has to do with anything but how in ever...).

I'll tell you what, bring all that up yourself at the next county board meeting or get your club representative to bring it up... I assume you're a member of a club?

You started here moaning about clubs having to foot the cost of everything. That facilities weren't up to scratch. Well NEWSFLASH... they don't foot the cost of everything and NEWSFLASH... the facilities we have in Leitrim are more than sufficent for the resources we have... the facilities you want cost money and there's no magic money tree.

It's gas... I've put a good few questions to you which you haven't answered and returned with nothing but hyperbole and auld guff & nonsence. Typical hurler on the ditch... if asked to get involved at County level you'd probably run a mile. I've come across lots of lads like you, all talk about how everything is wrong and what you'd do but no action.

Ive been told by an annaduff player it was a shambles, players arrived to a pitch inspection and were left standing around for a decision, they were told a schools match was played in cloone friday, i assume mohill school i dont know. Who allowed a schools game to be played a day before a semi final. They were also told kiltubrid woudlnt let the game be played there, dont know if that is true.
Ccc are a joke, how long is this going to continue.
Annaduff or allen gaels will have a 7 day turnaround for a final!
What happens if it goes to a replay?
Surely final will be pushed out a week?

As a neutral I travelled to Carrigallen today for Gort and Aughasheelin and I enjoyed it l have to say it's always enjoyable to watch Seamus ref as a neutral. The big takeaway I took from today was Niall Woods completely dismantled Aaron Hoare in 2nd half great decision by the Gort Management. Aughasheelin straight back down after coming up which tells its own story

It is a pity it turned out this way and it is tough on all the players involved and I can understand why people are very frustrated.

I guess the weather and Leitrim soil are not good partners.

I presume Kiltubrid were preserving their ground for the ladies match.

I think the harsh criticism of the Leitrim Fixutures Committee is a big harsh as generally they do a good job , for what is a thankless task.

Well NEWS FLASH. The more that sufficient facilities you say we have were unable to hold games this weekend. But Drumshambo. Carrigallen. Gortletteragh ballnaglera could. That shows how deluded you are. What other questions would you like answers to. Think I answered them all but you just keep coming back about cost and money trees.

Other countys know enough not to waist millions on something like the shambles we have. And there county team doing a hell of a lot better than ours

You answered nothing but auld guff & nonsense... pure hyperbole. The county board aren't responsible for clubs getting their pitches in order. What they are responsible for is knowing what pitches are in order and it would appear that the officials didnt do a great job on that front but in case you didn't know, there's been unprecedented rainfall in this country for the last number of months so I'm not sure what you want the county board to do about that. There's plenty of fine facilties up and down the county, there's absolutely no shortage on that front.

I didn't say the CB were responsible for club grounds. Again read the posts right before you answer. Our more than sufficient facilities Carrick / COE were not able to hold games while a lot of club grounds could that is my point. And again I ask what questions did I not answer.

Was at the game too and congrats to Carrigallen for having the pitch in good condition considering the rain and I was told a junior match was played on it yesterday. Poor standard match in the main, Aughnasheelin should have been 6 or 7 ahead at the break and it came back to haunt them as they ran out of legs and as they only had 2 subs togged couldn't stem the tide. We'll done to Gortletteragh but I wonder would it be better for them to rebuild at intermediate than face the same struggle again next year as they undoubtedly will. Glenfarne and Carrick in Junior final would love to see Glenfarne win it but Carrick will probably be too strong.

Iv no problem reading. Anyone that on ere will see that. You the one that started about cost and nonsense about money trees. Saying I wouldn't answer questions but you still cant come up with one I didn't answer. Yousef and joeman123 have proved ye happy for us all to spend millions without improvement and think the rest of us should be happy with that

Was surprised that Cloone lost, but well done to Glenfarne. Mary's have rotated players since the group stage so it should be a close final.
I'm looking forward to attending it, hopefully it will be played at the HQ.

That is an outrageous slur on the Centre of Excellence.

Good people put in many hours to make it a reality with a massive fundraiser through the Brick in the Wall campaign through the CB and other mechanisms by the great clubs of Leitrim.Instead of outrageous slurs everyone involved in the Centre should take a bow.

Not to mention the generous sponsorship of the Centre by the McGovern family whose name it bears.

The Centre is well fitted out with the most modern gym equipment .It is used regularly by all the Leitrim development squads .There has been improvement in the underage teams who are now competitive, thanks to the work of the GDA's and outstanding volunteers. Apart from greatly improved performances in Connacht at U17 and U 20's , this year Leitrim reached the 16 Fr Manning Cup final and won the U15 Humphrey Kelleher title with a huge win over West Cork.

Prior to the COD coming on stream Leitrim teams were never sure where they could train, Cloone often was flood logged and other venues might or might not be available. Then of course Leitrim Co Board had to fork out for training grounds outside the county.

Contrast that with the situation where the current Leitrim senior and u20s are able to train regularly in the gym in Annaduff , including off season.I am greatly impressed to read that large numbers have been availing of supervised training in the Centre twice a week. This is remarkable and never happened before.

Yes , we need the other grounds to be improved but please desist from knocking the Mc Govern Centre Of Excellence .
