I was talking to a man from Drumkeerin yesterday and he was telling me about their situation in the league table and how their chance of promition has almost gone because of the CCC. they were due to play bornacoola back in june and bornacoolas pitch was unplayable so Drumkeerin said they could host the game on that evening bornacoola refused to travel and the CCC secretary told Drumkeerin that they would be awarded the points for the game. 4 months later the fixture was refixed and drumkeerin said they would not being playing the game as the points had already being awarded to them. CCC ruled that drumkeerin did not fullfill the re-fixture and then awarded the points to bornacoola. I was looking at the div 2 table and them 2 points that were awarded to bornacoola seem to be the decieding factor in the league. This is just 1 of a number of issues that clubs have had with the CCC this year. I hope all clubs go to convention and get rid of the CCC and other boards that clearly dont rule with common sense

When i said get rid of the CCC and other boards i ment the members on the boards we obviously need these boards but we need members that are fair and have GAA at their heart not the ones we have now that are their for there own personal agendas and are destroying Leitrim football

Bornacoola has 6 points handed to them! It's a joke!

Surely the CCC in its current format must be changed. Crazy situation with Div 2, Intermediate relegation final, U16 non-competition as it turned out. Mohill and Ballinamore could have played the final 3 months ago. Wake up CCC and resign en bloc and let forward thinking people in.

And what about Div 3,the final played months ago & still some important games left down the lower end of the table.

Div 3 is sorted already Leitrim Gaels are down, as Aughavas won promotion from Div 4 only one team will come up (Dromahair), Aughavas 1st team will stay in Div 3 and there 2nd in Div 4, if Leitrim Gaels win their final 2 games they will have 4 points but as they lost to Kiltubrid they will still go down (on head to head meetings), thus the league is complete no point playing anymore games

We all agree that the CCC is a joke. But can someone clear up what is happening witht he intermediate relegation game? is it going ahead?

Bornacoola had only 2 points handed to them! the very last game against annaduff which was always going to be a forgone conclusion! they got the 2 points for drumkeeran game because drumkeeran did not show for the game!

Bornacoola did not turn up for he orginal game v Drumkeerin but Drumkeerin were not awarded the points for the game. Dumkeerin did not turn up for the re-fixture as they felt they should have the points. the CCC ruled in favour of Bornacoola.

Surely the lower 2 in div 3 should still go down

Not much point in keeping teams up for little loophole reasons when they will struggle next year to even score let alone win a game

It's not good for Leitrim football for a team to play pairc Sean and score less than 2 scores in any half

Lugdrum you are wrong - the original game was postponed due to terrible conditions.

94allstar quit talking your usual sh*te, the first round of league games this year was wetter and colder than it is now so don't start saying lads don't wanna get out and play, it all comes down to the CCC not the club players. And good man ya I can really see them closing that loophole alright, first league game of Div 3 this year Aughavas vs Aughavas, where will they play this???

Drumkeerin and Allen Gaels should feel aggrieved by the CCC becaue they fixed a Div 2 game between Gortletteragh and Manorhamilton on the eve of the Div 1 final, by doing this, Manor were unable to field their strongest Div 2 team. Also looking at the table prior to final round of games Drumkeerin and Allen gaels had it all to play depending on results from other games. Leitrim gaels conceded the previous evening to Gortletteragh leaving the Drumkeerin and Allen Gaels game of no importance. Fair play to both teams for fulfilling the fixture. I wonder will the clubs that conceded games be fined.

I suppose false hope is better than none

If it keeps ye thinking ye will stay up next year good luck

Loopholes don't win games and neither do ye

Who's takeing the wides/ frees next year for ye?
