All of it really. Most if it speculation. Does he realise they have a redeveloped pitch in kilcloon 5k from kilcock that is used for majority of training sessions now? .....and when they were winning div 1 minors, u21, senior and competing strongly every other year for 10 years, there was no parish centre or secondary schools back then either and it didn't effect performance or team spirit, I'm not even sure where he was going with that one. And they do have a manager in place already, and have done for weeks now, to correct someone else that said they don't cause u can't manage unmanageables. As he said himself, it's not his club so he doesn't really care, and that's fine, but that's even more a reason not to be coming up with half cocked theories and mis informed opinions.

Replying To Crinigan:  "Well I'm open to correction on any of the points I made.

Maybe everything is rosy in the garden there and my info is wrong and it's a tight knit club, I'm not too bothered either way as they are not my club. I'd be amazed though if the kids growing up in all the new estates on the outskirts of Kilcock which are in Meath and therefore within BHG catchment area will travel the 16km to train in Batterstown though."
16km from what part of kilcloon to batterstown Gaa pitch? That is a massive exaggeration

Correct I exaggerated it seems. Just checked google maps, its 14km from just outside Meath Bridge (beside where the estates are being built) to Batterstown GAA field. Not 16 km therefore.

I bow to Southmeath gaels' better knowledge of the club as presumably its his club (SouthMeath would indeed cover much of the clubs catchment area) and I didn't intend to cause offence. I suppose time will tell as to how the club performs and develops over the coming years.

well it's not my club but I would the majority of those group quite well having been in school with and them and playing with some of them on school teams and playing against them with our clubs and your claim of their being lots of big egos and unmanageable players is way off base. look i don't know if someone is telling you that but its simply not true. all clubs have players that need more managing than others and Blackhall is no different but its certainly not an overly difficult group any different to any other club. They punched above their weight for alot of years but unfortunately the lack of quality players coming up from the juvenile ranks coupled with losing key senior players like Tadhg Brosnan has finally caught up with them. certainly not q difficult group of players so your way off there.

Not sure Moynalvey do. Heard they are struggling to get who they want.
