Edendork To Resist Proposed New Dungannon Boundary & Allege GAA Gerrymandering

New Dungannon proposal

By Aughoughilley Schniffles

Officials in Edendork are up in arms alleging that Dungannon Borough Council are guilty of engaging in “gaelic gerrymandering”, following new 30mph limit signs being relocated to just south of Darren McCurry’s home house, extending Dungannon’s reach by a couple of miles. 

The chairman of the club has accused Dungannon Clarkes GAA as having a hand in the action, in a bid to annex some of the local talent to assist its mission for a first ever O’Neill cup victory on Sunday 20 September.

Groundsman, Peadar McAtasney, confirmed:

“Aye they are some shower of bolloxes. The signs were unearthed at 2.00am last night and wheeled down the road on the back of a Datsun and re-erected just outside Mallaghans. They are hoping that it means that by default McCurry becomes a Clarkes man, and will tog out for them in the Senior final.  I heard on the grapevine they wanted to get it as far as Morgan’s home place too, but that would mean taking half of Brackaville with them, and sure what would be the point in that.  It’s unreal, considering the wealth they have at their disposal with all the endorsements and prime billions in sponsorship that comes with being based in a major town, that they would stoop to such a low”

Husband of one, McAtasney, went on, pointedly:

“sure luk at the cut of thon: it says you are now leaving Dungannon right outside our pitch.  My Grandfather didn’t die in the war for this.   It would sicken ye…  Anyway, I’m away to move these sheep, they’re atein’ away at the goal mouth there a bit much”

It is understood that should this move be rubber stamped by Dungannon Council at an emergency meeting convened for this evening, that up to one fifth of the Edendork population would be left with no choice but to ditch the gold and green colours of Edendork, to don the green and gold of Dungannon.  If the move were to be successful, it would mean eighteen O’Donnells, five McGearys, half a dozen Mallons would be annexed, and force to play for their closest rivals, with some predicting riots and no more Powerscreen gear being permitted to get near the M1.

In other unrelated news, a row has broken out as to where the real Gortin is, whether at the top of the Coalisland Road, or the other Gortin.  Tempers have frayed between several oul biddys on Facebook, who have promised to settle their differences at half time of the Intermediate final.  We will be opening a book and selling hot dogs at the event.
