Hendersons are the biggest rip-off in the country and should be boycotted. Shop in Lidl etc and buy their own brands for the most stuff. Its have the price and less and tastes the same. £2.10 for mustard in my local Hendersons, its £55p in Lidl and tastes better.
You'd need a loan to shop in Mullan's Spar in Armagh. Mad prices.

I can't get my missus talked into shopping outside of Sainsburys or buying own brand as she has this very old fashioned "yellow pack" view that they can't possibly be as good despite me telling her that in a lot of instances it's the same stuff from the same factory!

Lidl own called Batts are brilliant at mayo, sauces, etc

Those other places are ripping us off

All the best to Armagh this weekend! Many of you may not like it, but they are a properly run county and we should aspire to follow in their footsteps! A team who plays attractive football, and let's hope they win it for Ulster!

Down gaa.tv is missing a trick tonight and should be streaming live updates from around the grounds from all the games, especially division 1. Patsy Russell and Peter McGrath junior could do it .

No decision on the senior football management will be made to senior management to early August.

Bit disappointing but not surprising.

Minors?
Have they no shame to be staying on?A sh-t show set-up from start to finish.
As the weeks progress itíll all come out from the players as to how bad it was.Watch this space.

Who? Minors or seniors?

No decision made on it either, we are going to wait in limbo like 2021. Everyone should be onto their club delegate to give out to them as although everyone will blame the county executive for this but every club had a voice last night and yet we are still no further on.

Anyone you know in your club? (an Fear Rua 20212)

The Shit Stirrer

The scourge of all clubs.

Has no role in society, let alone a GAA club other than turning up at the club's general meetings, dressed in their Sunday best and wreaking all sorts of cumbersome havoc. As footballers they were in general, disgustingly hopeless and with a pair of arms and legs that refused to work together in harmony on the pitch they spent their careers wrapped up in a good big overcoat on the line belittling the efforts of their team-mates on the field and vocally cursing the mentors who had the sense to keep them off the starting fifteen.

Their resentments are built up over the years and anyone who ever crossed their path is subject to their pent up vitriol. Will seethingly complain about everything in the club from selectors to assistant-treasurers, have a penchant for refusing to accept democratic decisions at all levels yet will never offer to do anything constructive for the club and even buying a monthly Ä5 ticket is beyond their limited capabilities.

Are completely selfish and only seem to care about themselves and their brothers/sons/nephews within the club - all of whom are a milder version of the general Shit Stirrer.

Have a deep hatred of all neighbouring clubs, referees and most of their own clubmates yet in most cases never receive the widespread condemnation they truly deserve.

The Idiot

If a club only has one such character they are something of a mundane outfit.

However, it is usually the most lunatic character within the club's environs that gains this unenviable title. Can be seen at championship matches pacing up and down the line frothing and foaming at the lips of his mostly toothless mouth and shouting all sorts of impenetrable obscenities at the referee, linesman, players from both sides and supporters.

Will be among the first people in the dressing room before a big game, will reappear again at half time and at the end and will be very forthright in his much-maligned opinions. He will more than likely have changed his tack later in the local after a few pints of the black stuff and couple of half ones yet will always swear by his views.

In most cases this raving lunatic doesn't own a car yet there is always someone available to prop him up in the front of their vehicle and bring him to his required destination.

Whenever the opportunity arises he will serve as linesman and his arm always signals the same direction - in favour of his team. He will more than likely cause some sort of row but has an uncanny knack of being able to disappear when the going gets tough.

The Saviour

Every club in every county has one - if they didn't they would have ceased to exist long ago.

He is the man in the club that does everything - often without a title to his name. He arranges games, he lines the pitch, puts up the nets, pumps the balls, opens the dressing rooms, turns on the showers, brings the water, jerseys and first aid kit, pays the ref and locks up afterwards. He informs all the players of all the necessary details and if the game is away his car is bursting at the seams with players, supporters and club officials.

Often he will train an Under-10 team on a given evening in the field, finish up in time to select the Junior 'C' team, and end up being forced into action himself because of a lack of numbers before rushing to a County Board meeting as the club's delegate and then back to the 'local' to co-ordinate the monthly draw.
On the rare occasions that this individual falls sick or goes missing for a couple of days the entire club falls into disrepute and scenes of chaos ensue.

When do county board meet again?

Iíd expect there might be a discussion on the management teams for next seasonís minor & senior footballers.

Would be novel to have them in place before championship time.

There is a meeting tonight so I am sure it will be discussed.

Times are changing when the Bridge beating Bosco is a shock.

They hammered them in the league and are the nest scorers in the league. Bosco were the form team coming into the final looking at results.

Glenn Minors playing Aghaderg in a league final tonight, it seems the CB thought the best place for this game would be on a nice local pitch in Dromara

Div 4 league, Glenn need to play at a higher level at underage, they always win low levels and should be pushed up.
 I would imagine the reason for Dromara is pitch availability. I am sure every senior team trains tonight but blame the county board as there is no way they would not have asked Banbridge, Annaclone, Drumgath etc ::)

If clonduff and Loughinisland both win do clonduff not take 4th spot on head to head?

That's right if RGU are beaten and Clonduff and Island win then Clonduff are up. Clonduff might just shade their game V Mayobridge as they have more at stake but I don't think they will be getting much favors from their neighbours.

Every game means something so it leaves for an exciting end to this first phase , Ballyolland host Warrenpoint in a must-win as If CPN win they go 4 points clear from them. We could start to see some more outliers after the weekend's fixtures.

45% of reserve league division 2 games were conceded this year. It's time for the reserve leagues to be given back to the divisional boards.

Loughinsialnd are managed by Kevin Duffin and Collie McCrickard, they are in pole position and if Rostrevor cannot stop Oisin Savage on Friday then It will be the Island joining Kilcoo, Burren and the Bridge in the league play-off. Savage is special and he is someone who we should have on S and C programme already. Is there any update on the senior management, Plans need to be in place for 2023 already?
