I think you'll find the €30m was given on the understanding that the GAA would change its rules to allow the Rugby World Cup games to be played in some GAA grounds of the Irish bid was successful.
But sure let's bash th'oul Gah.
It'll take attention away from 2 soccer clubs about to go under.

Agree with that.  Also ban " throw" points while we're at it..

It wasn't me said it improved standards.
Antrim's standards falling for a while now. Weren't they in the Leinster Championship a few years ago.
I'd imagine they have a fair few more hurlers than Carlow or Westmeath so why were they not in the tier 2 Final?

Have standards in Antrim improved?
Let's have Cavan v Galway next year.
That should improve the Cavan lads.

No. Much easier for half eejits to go off on a bit of "Gah" bashing.
Why didn't they kick up over Cork's soccer team not getting the Páirc for their game against a Polish team the other week?
Sure half the Poles in Ireland would have gone to it?

What would the sanction be?
Free?
From where?

2015 Nicky Rackard Cup Final.
Totally irrelevant question.

And was it shown live this year on National TV?

The only irrelevancy is tiered completions, Tommy Murphy, Christy Ring, McDonagh and Rackard. Standards drop crowds drop interest drops TV drops.

There is a reason why Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.

The standards in those hurling competitions haven't dropped at all. They've improved if anything.


I'd imagine lads would be putting more in when they have a realistic chance of winning a competition.

Hmmmmmm. ......
Maybe management wanted him to get more "game time"??
I see Fitzmaurice is named on the bench too.
Will he go down in history as being the only Inter County player to have never played in anything but AI Qtr Finals? ?

If the 2.5m (as it will be then) working taxpayers in the 26 Cos are told they'll be funding a "Reconstruction" or "Equalisation" tax of €10bn per annum = i.e €4k each or €80 extra per week........
To misquote Clinton. "It's me pocket stoopid"
A no of 6Cos people already said on this Board that if a UI cost them money they wouldn't vote for it.
But we're expected to pay for it so that people,many of whom spend their time running down the "Free State" and "Free Staters" can continue to live in a subsidised basket case free gratis.

If SF as alleged get their way and that the 6 Cos becomes a total basket case altogether who are they going to unite with?
We will be voting NO in such a scenario.
If SF are anti EU who the fk do they expect to pay for this basket case 6 Cos?

Is this the royal "we"? 

If that was true, then more shame on you. An opportunity to unite the country and you would say no? Maybe the South should make up for some of the past and take a hand in creating a better United Ireland even it it means short term uncertainty rather than just look to see what it can get out of it. If that feeling was prevalent in the south then it would be hugely disappointing.
Read the full context.
If SF deliberately work to make a total basket case out if the 6 Cos. You can bet your life people in the 26 Cos will not pay through the nose  for their vandalism.
On the other hand a responsible adult Party trying to make the 6 Cos a better place would have a far better chance of getting a "Yes" vote.
I presume SF's MEPs collect their salaries from the EU!!

The main thing for me in Ewing’s interview:

“Players in every county not been given an equal opportunity to develop their potential.”

Critics and their propagandists in the media talk about the inequity in provincial system, but hardly ever about the inequity from county to county. Remove Dublin. Other counties still have huge advantages over rivals because they have more money to develop players potential and development panels from youth.. Why do they have more money:

A) bigger population = equals more money from support base
b) More businesses in economic hotspots  = more commercial support
C) bigger population = more gov clout and more funding

It goes on...

What county would trade places with the Leitrims of the world. It’s a shame a player of Emlyn Mulligans talents will never get to play in Croke Park. This message was sponsored by absolutelyfuckingnoone.
Good post.
I doubt if we'll see representative football moving from the County unit, with all its inequalities, in our lifetimes.
