One of the bravest performances by a Down team this year in football or hurling was from the County Under 21 Hurlers in the Leinster Qualifier v Antrim. Thirty-Eight Clubs played host to visitors from every County in Ireland and Beyond, Contacts had been made weeks and months in advance, clean ups had been organised and all of our Grounds and Facilities were looking magnificent in anticipation. At half time the lead was one of seven points with Down 1-9 to 0-5 ahead even though Kevin McKernan had been lost to a black card just on the stroke of Half time. I particularly thank those schools for facilitating our requests and permitting their pupils to be able to represent Down Schools. The performance against Cork was sluggish in the first half and it was largely through the free taking of Anthony Doherty that Down went in at Half time just one point in arrears. The fact that we have the greatest games in the World was particularly evident at the end of June 2018 when Down along with Louth and Meath hosted National Féile.

We were flat in our performance; after twenty-five minutes it was 1-8 to 0-0 before Caolan Mooney got a point for Down. This must change and change soon, 2019 can be the year that we start to make that difference, we must try to win every competition that we enter and we must believe too that we can. Reality was to kick in though with our visit to Donegal, it was one of those weekends where there were clashes with Fitzgibbon and other distractions resulting in a disappointing performance and a first ever win for Donegal over Down in competitive hurling on a score of 0-17 to 0-14.

He was a skilful dual player but it was his talents as an intelligent, tenacious and committed administrator that set Bertie apart and he was the driving force behind the club in those difficult formative years. So, it is with some sadness but with great pride and affection that we remember the life of our Club President, a Giant of a Gael both for Aghaderg and Down and the perfect gentleman through and through.

The men of 1968 too were guests of the Ulster Council on 26th May in Newry and also for the first time we had an Under 20 Curtain raiser as opposed to the traditional Minor Football curtain raiser. This can be done though and if one key area, the conceding of frees is addressed then I believe we would make a huge difference. The men from the West shaded the verdict over a Down team that battled bravely to the end, but few could begrudge Mayo their win on this bitterly cold day in Cavan. Certainly, the respective managements of Paul McGrane and James Mccartan would have shared equally the frustration of their young charges being seemingly unable to follow instruction. Armagh were the next visitors to McKenna Park in Ballycran and despite making it difficult for Down at times, the Down attack showed their ability to score goals and with Eoghan Sands, Danny Toner and Paul Sheehan all finding the net, to leave the final score Down3-15 Armagh 0-13.

The focus on that day was elsewhere we were not calculated enough to go out and be clinical and just win the game ensuring that we were in control of our own destiny, days like that and results like that mean that you fail to achieve.
