I see caught on video in a nightclub shifting the face of a young lad who isn't his partner. Personally I couldn't care less but the silence of media today is worth noting. Would it be so silent if

1 - it was a woman TD caught snogging a man who wasn't her partner

Or

2 - if it was Mary Lou McDonald (this would be front page news for 6 months)
Or another male td shifting a woman…

Depends what party
Of course.
Anyway, Leo’s business is Leo’s business, as is Mary-Lou’s and every other politicians. As long as everythings consensual then the media don’t need to be telling us about anything they get up to
Anything?

Did Kildare not produce one with a rainbow trim for Anthony’s testimonial?

Once off for a challenge game. Slightly different to the years kit

Don't live in Ireland, but you do hear that it is becoming more common.
Now I drink my fair share and maybe more but,
Biggest thing I don't understand;
Do any of these young people care about the potential long-term effects on their organs. Heart especially.
How do the users at local level trust what they are putting into their bodies.
How do they trust their source and that dealers source.
How long before a bad or contaminated batch that is mixed with (Fentanyl) or some other poison kills or incapacitates three or four people at one time.
The amount of unintended overdoses in the US and the suffering from it is terrible.
Not an expert and maybe they are completely different drugs, but the outcome is scary nonetheless.

Finally, why dont the Gardai open up a confidential hotline to out the dealers at local level, it would be a starting point.
The Gardai do.

Fentanyl is heroin, very different story.

A major reason for the rise in cocaine use is the exorbitant price of hooch.

If you are going to ruin your life you will. No matter if it is drugs, alcohol, gambling. In many cases that person was destined to be a f**king disaster. If it wasn't drugs it would be alcohol or gambling or something else. Eradicating drugs isn't the answer nor is it the whole problem.

That is an absolutely ridiculous post.

Not entirely ridiculous, just a bit generalised. SOME people who have these addictions are genetically predisposed to some addiction, it could be stamp collecting as much as drugs etc.

And I would expect a manager/club if they saw this behaviour to offer help. I wouldn't expect a public expulsion from the entire GAA to be that help.

f**k I’ve heard it all now. The Mayo county board are “virtue signalling”.
Some boys watching too much GB news
😂😂😂

A lot of young gay men still feel uncomfortable fitting into local sport

Indeed. And some of the commentary on this shows why we need this sort of thing.

But if Mayo get this, a midlands county get 'let us cut turf'. Then it's 'upgrade our hospital'. Then 'Prosecute Soldier F'. Then 'our county is full, no refugees' and then we are in a world of pain.

Say that, not patent bullshit about shirts when anyone can sponsor a team.

Virtue signalling shite.
Agree. Same as the world cup rainbow shite.

Maybe it’s to symbolise that Mayo are as likely to win Sam as someone is to find the leprechaun and pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

The treatment of the migrant  workers building the stadia in Qatar has all been forgotten about in the constant  talk of gay rights.  Some estimates of 6,500 dead, thousands paid  shite wages or none at all .

Yer woman Alex was lauded for wearing a rainbow armband on the sideline .  That’s all well and good , so why didn’t she wear an arm band on the other arm  in support of the migrant workers?

Because LGBT advocacy groups have asked for a stance. Migrant workers equivalent hasn't

Should we not try to help people? Be it with education or in a lot of cases a kick up the hole to wise them up?
  a kick in the hole from the mamager in private or a public kick in the hole that employers can see?

This would be entirely illegal. There are no contracts and the reason the county players are tested is because they get grants from the Olympics fund.

Also all this talk of 'helping' players. You don't do that by publically banning them for smoking a joint

Mayo not allowed incorporate a rainbow design at the request of their charity partner because the jersey is sacrosanct. Unless of  course it's a sponsor or manufacturer logo.

Right answer, wrong justification for me.

Confirmed: Galway become first GAA county to go over €2m in team spending for one season


https://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/gaa/arid-41014745.html

what all would add up to that?
Joyce and his team? Few nights in Dublin hotels? Wouldn’t be long adding up but 2 million is some coin

Finn Harps have that. And they pay their players

850k a team? There are professional soccer clubs spending less. I would love to see that spending breakdown.

I hope I live to see the day Ros CB will be applying for planning for a Centre! where teams might be able to train.....

Building two at the same time is largesse we don't need.  Remember there is also Abbotstown

Hollystown GC is at least closed. The Spawell has bars, restaurant, golf, astro, tennis and a load of smaller business like hairdressers. All will be evicted and at leat 100 jobs gone. For a third cluster.

Jobs gone is bollix. People get their hair cut, if not in one place than somewhere else. Likewise with drinking.

That attitude will go down very well with the locals who are losing amenities

If only they'd sit on their hands whinging the various Dublin Councils would give them loads of free stuff....

Not sure I follow, but both NAMA sales to the DCB for our new 'clusters' were, ahem, intersting.
