is this total shite or retrospective? bizarre it would be Oct before an under 16 final would need to be played in any county.
U-16 finals still not played in Tyrone and looking at draw for Spirit of Paul McGirr the Donegal champions not yet known either.
I know it Tyrone the u-16's is an August-October competition to minimise overlap with u-14's and u-18's (March - July).

I thought his piece today was excellent. Comparing all the unheralded work done by volunteers in the GAA against Colm Copper's "testimonial" dinner.

While I generally like Brolly and generally don't like Cooper, I find this type of comparison as pure nonsense.

Cooper's dinner has no impact whatsoever on the "unheralded work done by volunteers".
Cooper is a GAA superstar, and if he wants to sell a dinner, then I couldnt give a rat's ass. Doesn't affect me one iota, and I certainly won't buy a seat. But there's no reason for me to stop someone else buying a seat, if that's what they really want to do.

FFS, the "woe is me" shite about volunteers is vomit inducing. Of course it's "unheralded work", that's why we need to get volunteers to do it!

Cooper is also a volunteer at Dr Crokes, still playing senior and helps out with coaching of one of the underage teams (U16 I think). And turns up for all kinds of events run by the club.

I love how brolly positions himself as some sort of crusader for the people and idiots lap it up. Anyone who can not see this mans ego is at the core of everything he does and there is plenty not for putting on this board are completely deluded

I see tight-arse Brolly couldn't stump up a further required £2 for an Antrim final.

I wonder how many of us would get in having not paid the full amount.

He gave a kidney to save a life and has used that publicity to increase the awareness of donating organs. How can you possibly have a problem with that!!!!!
It must be tough to go through life with such a bitter attitude

All that kidney stuff is bollix.

Why does donating a kidney give you carte blanche to insult and deride people when giving ~15 years of your life for free to entertain and inspire thousands of people doesn't entitle you to have a whip-around when you finish up?
