Sullivan does look after ( is involved in looking after ? ) an under age team in Cloyne / Colmans . Has a young fella playing . Maybe U12 / 13 ?

Someone is wrong.

Throw in John Cooper, Harrington from Passage, Ahern Na parsaigh and Saich Kilworth and there is a serious outfit in the making. Sully is learning his trade as a coach and no doubt his presence adds extra weight. There are some super 16 years olds on the fringes but at this level a years development is a huge gap to bridge.

Dress it up anyway you want but Premier 2 is just a fancy name for the second tier grade. In old days it was B plus some of the so called big clubs competing in Premier 2 should be embarrassed like Ballincollig, Midleton etc. it's a joke with their population bases they should be in the top tier

I noticed that myself. WTF are Midleton especially doing playing Premier 2.

Also re the schools in Harty Cup. Some progress with 8 Cork schools playing but is anyone on the Board looking to get big schools in Carrigaline and Ballincollig involved?
Massive population bases. There should be coaching or games development officers planted permanently there.
Colaiste Choilm in Ballincollig surely has a gaelic ethos and should be promoting hurling and football. If the principal/teachers there can't be arsed making the effort or supporting it, the County Board in conjunction with local clubs should be all over it and should have been for years now.
Looking at the U14-U17 development squads, there is a huge number of pupils from CC and the Community School in Ballincollig on these lists.

Once again, another sign of inaction and ineptitude by the Cork County Board.

Carrigaline, The Glen also playing Premier 2
Plus another thing which is a joke is Blackrock & the Barrs playing Under 16 B (sorry Premier 2 )hurling typical of clubs taking the easy option of dropping down the grades rather than putting in an effort in coaching players to come up to the required level. Clubs might not win it but at least their players play at the level they should be playing at. B or Premier 2 should be for the smaller city clubs and smaller country teams.

Well said,
If we are so far off the mark from a hurling perspective then its easy to see why we have had little or no underage succes for a long time. Is there really that much of a difference between premier A and Premier B hurling. Its a soft touch for the clubs to pick up a county title.

As far as I know, Johnny Dwyer is coaching full-time in the schools in Ballincollig, I think funded by Ballincollig GAA, with a contribution from other clubs in the area with players going to school in Ballincollig.

Premier 2 is B. Dress it up whatever way u want.Teams playing A in rebel og are actually playing C . The premier 1 & 2 standards are good but after that its poor fare.

Just giving the competition the titles they have, well aware that there are 5 (and at some levels 6) grades of competition. Of course the standard after premier isn't as high, what else would you expect from a grading system?

Clubs playing at the lower levels are usually those that come from smaller catchment areas where there simply aren't 15 lads at each age level that are up to the standard of Premier etc. Occasionally a group might come along that is exceptional, but they may be followed by a group that isn't as rich in talent. No point putting teams into competitions that they won't be competitive in (See the All Ireland Senior Football and Hurling Championships for proof of this).
