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

He did not.
Ciaran meenagh held a team meeting

I have to say I think this is more likely.
The Derry county board took abuse for not making a statement.
Can you imagine the outcry if it turned out Gallagher was anywhere near the panel after statement saying he was stepping back.
That would be stupidity of another magnitude.

In the modern world 1 person  with a phone and its headline news.
I can't believe anyone would take that risk or allow it to be taken.

Leenie what hes done is bad enough and if the Derry board ignored an email then thats poor too. All will sort itself out without the need for baseless rumours to add to the thing

Tonto no not you in particular. Just seen the same thing repeated, and at a guess all coming from the gipe that posted it originally

Derry County Board apparently stating they received no such email from NG's Father last year, I would be surprised if the Sindo would state this in their article without asking to see.  Brolly also made reference to the email in his column as well.
How convenient. Ignoring such an email would obviously have a very bad look.

It was a washy statement though he said he was stepping back as Manager which could mean he was still involved in background.

What does it matter if the accuser's father emailed the Derry board?  Surely if someone emailed my work with such an accusation they would be told wrong direction, contact the police.

Not really.

Do you think is all the responsibility a community sports organisation has?
Do you think thatís what their members would want?
Do you think that what their sponsors would want?
Do you think thatís what potential funding agencies would want?
Do you think that would be the best way to protect the game that you are there to nurture would be?

The matter will have to be fully investigated. Was the mail sent? Was it received? Who the did the recipient share it with? What they do next? These should not be difficult questions to answer.

Eh? So your expecting GAA volunteers to perform criminal investigations?
Are they then expected to act as a jury on the outcome of said investigations? What about judge and executioner too while were at it?

The response can only be - "Sorry, you need to take this to the police. It is not appropriate or feasible that we be an investigator in these matters. With society here operating on an 'innocent until proven guilty' premise, Rory Gallagher will remain in charge of Derry unless we receive concerning information from the relevant authorities".


-----------------------

In general, a bit concerned about the trial by social media thing gathering pace. If people are going to condemn someone based only on accusations, that is an extremely slippery slope to start down. Hypothetical argument; if [a,b,c] happened, how would you like it if the other party made accusations and you were sacked and turned into a pariah off the back of the accusations (be they completely false, embellished or true) before even having the chance to defend yourself?

[a - you got promoted ahead of someone and they were livid about it.]
[b - your marriage broke down]
[c - neighbour feud]
[etc etc]

I have two words regarding these allegations about Rory Gallagher. And they will be my last words on this forum.
Posters commentators and Media should be very aware that abuse comes in all shapes and forms. And in their haste to condemn they should be aware that everyone has rights and emotions , even the guilty, and we must be careful mot to be abusers ourselves.
My two last words are " Caroline Flack ".

Domestic violence should not be tolerated anywhere. Against women and men. i heard first hand at Clones yesterday young fella's singing "There's only one Rory Gallagher". Sensibly some older Derry fans told them to be quiet. A proper inquery needs to happen to see if Derry GAA actually got this e-mail. But fair play to the sensible Derry fans for stopping the younger drunk fans singing that.

Has a formal complaint been made against RG to the police?

If not, is there an onus on the police to investigate anyway?

RG may have a case to answer, and I have zero sympathy for bullies and women beaters, but it would seem his managerial career is over. Has he a job outside of the GAA?

Latest rumour now is that Gallagher took a session in Corduff club and had breakfast there after with team. And he was out in Dormans last night.

The Gardai wanted to talk to his wife per her Sindo interview . Maybe the PSNI got the memo.

Not just women beaters, there are some men in the same position. Domestic violence isn't black and white some men wont admit it. Its all wrong.
