RG at arms length
« on: May 15, 2023, 11:40:53 AM »
It's hard to see how he can go back this side of the all Ireland Final.

His absence in the wake of domestic abuse allegations by his ex-wife meant that the occasion could go off without everyone on tenterhooks. The last thing the Ulster Council wanted was an incident or a talking point.On television, RTÉ cut to an ad break before Conor Glass began his winning captain’s speech, presumably erring on the side of caution.

The fact he took a training session on Saturday in Derry may suggest otherwise.

Is that a fact though? Someone on another thread said that was nonsense and whoever posted it as fact should be called out for it...

I think if you have a starting point that all forwarded WhatsApp messages you get are a load of crap and then work back from there.

Sure there was another message he was in Dormans last night ffs!

I'd believe that one. I thought it was more than a coincidence that RG was gone, only a few hours after the bbc contacted Errigal looking for a comment regarding Gallagher.

Match done and dusted and Derry don’t have another game for a couple of weeks. There is a window now for whatever investigations to be held.

The allegation that Derry were informed is extremely serious. Ultimately they will have to make a statement as to what they knew and what they did with that knowledge. Anybody advising them should work on the presumption that at some stage the full details will become known and consider what it is you want to be explaining at that stage. If a misstep (complete euphemism in the context) has taken place its better to own up than have it exposed/dragged out later. If there steps to be taken now then make sure they are decisions that you will be comfortable defending later.

At this current stage of the evolving story I can’t see how any member of the Derry county board can appear in public or with a journalist and not be asked the fairly basic question as to whether they were one of the Board members that were told on one of the ones that weren’t. It’s not a question to be evasive on. That is not a sustainable position.
