GAA Discussion / Club pitches
« on: April 26, 2022, 01:05:46 PM »
I was speaking with a gent yesterday whos son is u11 and he informed me that his team can only train once a week as their pitches are always full.  He says the club host hurling , football, CAMOGIE AND LGFA . He says the kids are even losing space to Gaelic for mothers, gaa lads and dads and that sort of crap we are seeing at gaa clubs these days.  Is this is a  problem in every club? Clubs should be doing more than 1 night a week of training and a match at the weekend?

I was at Croke park at the weekend at Ed and was shocked and the Blaise nature of people taking coke. Is Cocaine a societal problem or does the GAA need to do more to tackle it?

GAA Discussion / Best gear manufacturer

Is O'Neills still the best on the market? There seem to be a lot of new brands over the past few years.

Any ideas as to what the best value is?

I have heard good reports of MFC and Playerfit?

GAA Discussion / Club social media

What should be put on a club's social media?

Personally, I think that it should be used to advertise matches and events, match reports and photos, death notices.

Some clubs go way over the top and congratulate people on finishing their dinner. Get wee soon to wee Mary down the road.

BTW the death notices should be for immediate members, not a death notice every day.

GAA Discussion / Sectarian abuse from the free staters
« on: February 07, 2022, 11:18:19 AM »
Down hurling manager Ronan Sheehan has alleged that his players were subjected to sectarian abuse during Sunday's Allianz League clash with Carlow.

Marc Fisher scored a late goal at Ballycran as the Mourne men won by the narrowest of margins in the Division 2A Allianz League encounter.

But Sheehan took to social media afterwards to express disappointment at some of the words that had been used against his players in the game.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Sheehan alleged that the abuse had come from Carlow players, and that he had been informed of it by his own panelists in the dressing room after the game.

"It may only be loose words for the person saying them but it does impact on players given who they are and what some of their families endured to play our national games," Sheehan said.

"If we had lost today I would have said nothing as people would say it was only sour grapes but when we won I thought it was important to highlight [it] as it's an insult to Gaels up here."

Carlow GAA were approached for comment, and released the following statement: "Carlow GAA are committed to upholding the principles of Anti-Sectarianism and Anti-Racism.

"All related reports/allegations are investigated and action taken as appropriate," said Jim Bolger, chairperson of Carlow GAA.

Under GAA rules, sectarian abuse is a red card offence, which may carry a two-game ban, if witnessed by the referee or one of their officials.

General discussion / 20 years of the PSNI
« on: November 02, 2021, 09:15:07 AM »
Whats people's views on the PSNI now? Brolly gave them a good report in this week's Sunday independent?
I still do not know a cop personally and none live within my community. Do you ever think there will be a time in our lifetime that they will be living among our GAA communities?

GAA Discussion / Striking (Punching)
« on: October 25, 2021, 10:15:59 AM »
After seeing the disgraceful scenes in the Derry SFC a few weeks back and in the Down SFC yesterday, I feel it is time for the GAA to increase sanctions for punching. There is going to be someone badly injured someday. The GAA is supportive of the one-punch can ill campaign but in reality, is a one match ban enough for this sort of behaviour. It's time to crack down on this crap before someone dies.

GAA Discussion / Change underage back to u14,16,18
« on: October 04, 2021, 02:49:32 PM »
What is everyone's take on this? I personally think that we should change back to the old way. The gap from u17 to senior is massive and let's be honest about it, u19 competitions are a joke. In Down, it was run off like a go games blitz and only a handful of teams entered as your best u19s are involved in seniors. It was ok the way it was!

« on: August 23, 2021, 11:21:43 AM »
Recently I have seen lists by texts in Castlewellan, South Armagh and yesterday Newry on the drug dealers in the area. Personally, i think it's great to see these names outed. Will anything be done about it

General discussion / Boredom
« on: March 18, 2020, 11:27:15 AM »
I still in work at minute thankfully but my evenings are hateful now. My whole free time revolved around sport and especially gaa. I do not have a great attention span for netflix etc but i have them so would be open to good shows. I am single at the minute so tinder is out the window due to social distancing. After a few days I find myself totally bored and need tips to keep  the head right. I have planned on a run as soon as I home tonight. I think a lot of people will be in the same boat for the foreseeable future.
