Sounds a bit bitter. For some lads it's the equivalent of winning a senior and probably have trained just as hard as any team.

Croke park are looking for input from all counties and clubs to format a table. Of how much any team county or club can celebrate after wining a championshop .
Intercouny wins all irelands and provincials will be decided by their respective county board as age groups and completion varies. Ambitious counties may not want to celebrate provinsionals as it shoes mediocrity.
Leagues don't count as only secondary competitions and should nt be celebrated as such.
It's up to any club whether the reward hurlers more than footballers but be careful not to to upfront zbiut it you need to be mindful of the downtrodden.
U12 depending on grade soft drink and peanuts crisps for players with allergies . Maybe a trip to local amenity fo kids teans that win higher grades .
U14 much the same as above only McDonald's for higher grades
U16s gets trickier clubhouse party no alcohol though officially,bowling or cinema or the higher grades
U18s a minefield. Party in somones House where Liberal parents allow girls and alcohol present but under strict supervision.
U21 very tricky as u18s might be in the panel again party in hotel ,clubhouse or lounge with u18s togged out with bibs so they can be Monitored. Higher grades a trip away if sponsors willing to contribute .
Junior b junior a and junior .
1 2 or 3 nights out depending on if its 1st 2nd or 3rd team . No leinster championship so ya can go for it bit
Don't celebrate too much as its embarrassing to win really at this level.
IntermediateA intermediate and senior
Have a night maybe 2 as leinster is the following weekend . And you don't want to be embarrassing the whole county now by getting well beaten . Sure what would we do on here or have to complain about if ye done well .
Feel free to add any opinions suggestions on above
Only serious contributers now please .

Oh I agree it should be celebrated by the players and the club as to win any county final is a huge achievement - it's their twitter account and social media that are an embarrassment.

Name and put up a photo of an opposition player before the match that's "a legend in his own mind"

Replying To TerribleFootwork:  "Its just a case of year on year sure Fethard won Intermediate last year and Adamstown got to the final, we've struggled in Senior for years and we've actually became more competitive the last few years, I actually wouldn't be shocked if Lomans got to the final Kilmacud are undoubtedly favourites for Leinster but I'd expect Lomans to beat the Longford champions and them against Naas or Summerhill of Meath would be a 50/50 for me, also when you look how clubs like Kilcoo, Ballygunner and Cuala further back have done the fortunes of 1 club don't always reflect the county at that time."
I would agree, it is in fact almost the opposite now in football. Either Shels or Castletown I would say would fancy their chances now in Leinster as long as they could avoid Dublin. Shels don't have that one marque forward that would have made all the difference - looking at who got the scores yesterday - it was the county hurler playing corner forward who got the most. For club football the top two and it now looks as if Kilanerin may be getting there, are as good and well managed as any teams in Leinster. We now need to get out of Div4

Humour and comedy are subjective . If you dont find something funny more on . Had to have look at tweets to see what they on about . Woukd say it's bsnter fir sure he insulted more of his own than anyone else . Above posts sound like some ones own agenda and bitterness . Most likely rival club to he other team . At least most people know who the tweeter was or is .
I d assume he prob knows some of the lads mentioned or most of them and may be acceptable banter between them .
Know lot of lads from the club all good people with banter being flung endlessly . Don't know anything or seen any video . I d say the 2 or 3 on here doing the triolling were delighted they won in the first place and were straight on to say how well done they did and its great to see their fellow townies doing so well .

First time on here since before the weekend and I could reply to several posts, but instead, a few quick points:

- U21 is an adult grade. The fact that somebody set up the competition fixtures/results in the underage section of the Wexford GAA website doesn't change that. The deciding factor is that it's run by the adult CCC, not the Coiste na nÓg one.

- Ballinastragh Gaels/Kilanerin/Tara Rocks are not all the same. Officially, Ballinastragh Gaels is a dual-code Coiste na nÓg amalgamation, approved to play under that name up to and including U18. Kilanerin is an adult football club, whose members are allowed play hurling with Tara Rocks. Tara Rocks is an adult hurling club, whose members are allowed play football with Kilanerin. If entering an U21 competition, it should be done under the name Kilanerin in football, and under the name Tara Rocks in hurling, because officially, there is no Ballinastragh Gaels at U21 level.

- Clonee have never come with a proposal for any sort of similar arrangement with Ferns, St. Pat's, or anyone else near them (e.g. Kilrush/Askamore). It's not a case of them "not being allowed to".

- The fact that you can play Leinster Club Championship at age 17 (or if you've just turned 18 this year), but can't play in Wexford Club Championship at the same age, is not down to "interpretation of the rules". It's down to different rules applying for the different competitions. Both rules are black and white. The Leinster competitions are governed by the general rule book. The Wexford competitions are governed by the Wexford bye-law which was approved for this year.

- You don't have to be involved with the County Board to know what the rules are!

Your right re rules wecall shoukd kniw them and not take our interpratation of them but just making the point .
I can't understand why it can change through competitions and counties . Same organisation same rules should apply . I m asking maybe from a legal point of view if it was challenged how would it stand up . And yes rules have been challenged legally and over ruled. Be it bye laws add ons to suit counties whatever . I just feel its left to open .
Do u not get my point there is no consistency and not set in stone . Either an u18 born 2005 can play adult or he can't end of . Regardless of county or competition it needs to be countrywide . Is nt age barrier different for ladies competitions who cone under he umbrella of code of practice gaa too .

1. Pikeman has explained the situation exactly as it is.

2. It would stand up no problem to challenge because the rules allow each county to make bye laws which deviate from the general rule.

3. In relation to consistency, counties have different rules for different things all of the time, and no rule is ever set in stone. Every rule can be changed so if you believe it needs to be countrywide then bring forward a motion to repeal the regulation which allows counties to decide individually

4. Rules for ladies football or camogie competitions are not under the control of the GAA so therefore are not relevant to this discussion
