What is up on proc looks good, can't see why anyone would have a problem other than divisions losing 'power'.

A lot of clubs had problems with travel. Like how can clubs like Kinsale Courceys Kinsale Macroom be considered for the East Region. A lot of travel cost for parents. My own club had to travel from east cork to Agihnagh on a weekday for a game at 6-30. If they are planning set dates. They must consider smaller clubs who use players from all ages to fill teams ie U-14 team needing U-12 boys to fill teams

No wonder Cork hurling is going backwards. I know of 2 clubs who wanted to play prem 2 Hurling @ U -16 level and were told no. They are now playing in de A grade. It'ss no wonder we are light years behind.

One club won U-15A county last year. The other club beaten in U-14 A county final 2 years ago. Didn't play U-15last year. Makes you wonder.

Yet another shambles made by Rebel Og. These so called soft -borders to help cut travel distance. Watergrasshill Castlelyons Bride Rovers. St.Vincents all have individual teams put into the North region. So numbers could be made up. These teams will have to travel to places like Millstreet. Charleville. Kanturk Ballyhea. All at least an hours travel time. All done without notifying the clubs. How can a club be considered East for one age & North for another. Jokeshop

What's going on with fixtures? Somebody said there's war at u14 due to gradings? It was always gonna end up this way when they decided to go with 8 team league groupings from the start.

In under 16 soccer, you have teams from Coach Ford, Youghal, Kinsale, Little Island, Fermoy and Macroom in the same division. In under 16 Rugby you have teams from Killorglin, Bruff, Cobh, Waterford and the West Kerry Gaeltacht in the same competition. I know those involved in under 16 athletics frequently travel all over the province and the country for meets. These parents have been doing all this traveling for years. Isn't it amazing that these sports survive at all given, I assume the desperate amount of complaining those parents must be doing. We are the GAA though and we do things differently, the divisional structure that was set up 100 + years ago is as relevant as it ever was. There has after all been no changes in society-in transportation or communication technology in that time. It is also obvious that the 5 teams best equipped to provide your team with competitive games must always be the closest. Doesn't Frank not know any of this? I assumed in lived in the same cave as...
