Played for the martins myself marty, minor and senior, tis a pity the football has ended, the club has a good catchment area, maybe a gael like yourself will revive it

road hog i agree area has a great catchment and mickey o hara and skin worked their socks off trying to keep it going, i dont live in the area anymore but was hoping maybe some of the younger lads like mickey o donnell would bring it back to former glorys but its hard to compete with the football , kids dont have the same intrest and i think myself and other lads were lucky at our age growing up to have a gael like hugh nugent to show us that gaa could provide as much fun as football

When I played marty, the player / manager was Danny Taggart. Other players were Dessie Bateson and his brother Thomas, John Carlisle, two brothers from Ardoyne named Turley,Tom and Alan Hughes The late Ricky Mc Cusker, his brother John, and others I cant remember. When I got married, I moved to lurgan and played for the great clann na gael, then the medals rolled in, so sad about the martins though.

My dad played for the O'Neill Ogs which was the team from Ballymacarrett before the Sean Martins were formed .The majority of the players moved to the new team Sean Martins this was in the mid 40's.

Marty i think i know you and played both against and with you and i was on the losing side that time you won the junior championship. I was still playing up until this year but have also been managing the mals now for 2 years
