Great win for the minors yesterday evening in Portlaoise. An 8 point win over Leix which follows on from a 9 point win over Dublin.
The most promising crop we've seen in a good few years,

jesus, the No9 who got MOTM had a full tash and mullet Lionel Ritchie would be proud off.

I'd be asking to see the birth cert for that one.

Son of Kevin Martin, though I don't remember Kevin ever looking like this.
He looks more like Gerry McInerney

   Boris Johnson was locked in a stand-off with Northern Ireland’s biggest pro-UK unionist party on Monday, as a row over post-Brexit trading rules left the region in political paralysis.

The Democratic Unionist party warned Johnson that only the enacting of legislation to scrap a post-Brexit customs border in the Irish Sea — not just the threat of a new law — would be enough to end the political deadlock.

Liz Truss, the UK foreign secretary, will on Tuesday set out plans for British legislation to override parts of the Northern Ireland protocol, a key element of Johnson’s 2019 Brexit deal, if talks with the EU on reforming the pact fail.

But while that plan has enraged politicians in the EU — who argue that Johnson’s government is threatening to unilaterally rip up an international treaty — it is still not deemed hardline enough by the DUP.

Yesterday morning on the BBC website someone said that if results went against Leeds, the club could be all but down by teatime.
But Burnley and Everton both lost. The goal difference means Leeds have no room for complacency. The point was very important. Burnley could lose all 3 matches. It's all to  play for.

The DUP are walking all over the Shinners.
Border Poll in 5 years my arse.


Care to elaborate?
SF as biggest party doesn't change anything. There is no majority for unity if you look at totals for the 2 sides. The DUP can always get the Tories onside .
So "the DUP are running rings around the shinners" because demographics? OK so.
The demographics aren't there for a successful border poll right now . And the DUP are setting the agenda now. What are SF doing ?
You used demographics as your one and only explanation for how the DUP are "running rings around the shinners". It's a bit....desperate.

Since I'm sure you will concede that perhaps the demographic makeup of the population isn't really down to anything the DUP has done, then can you explain how you think the DUP are setting the agenda? There's a big border down the Irish sea which they're not one bit happy about, remember?? Their agenda since the Brexit referendum has been a hard border on the island of Ireland. How's that working out for them? Oh and they also just had their worst Assembly Election since the very first one in 1998. We're also hearing in the news this morning that Boris is flying over today with the intention of once again throwing them under a bus. The best they can hope for is some meaningless, minor alteration to the protocol which they would then have to attempt to sell as a victory. Unless you are basing your analysis purely on the DUP decision to collapse the executive? Which would be odd, because I just took a quick glance through the SF thread from the time of the SF collapse and your analysis then wasn't that SF were "setting the agenda". It was all about how damaged SF were and how they were going to be in big electoral trouble. Funny that.
The Shinners promised a border poll in 5 years. that is not going to happen because 27 Assembly seats do not mean a stable majority in favour of unification.
The DUP have agency and they are using it.
The Shinners need a new strategy.

I feel sorry for Monaghan. It's hard when your county's time is up after a period of success.
Derry will feel that anything is possible.

As I said earlier in the week, Monaghan are not a great Championship team recently. Derry on a good run, winning games, building up, and getting the players in the right place. Monaghan just never seem to be right for summer after expending a lot of energy staying up in Division 1. Priorities all wrong
They had their day.

So much for the wisdom of the board. Derry are back. Fág an bealach.

This weekend has the rugby semis and the second last weekend of the Premier League ahead of the champions league final. Lads will watch any kind of sport.  The GAA are nuts.

Yep, rugby and soccer in centre stage now, GAA left behind.

Even apart from that the GAA have fixed virtually no football next weekend but squashed all 4 Provincial football finals and the Tailteann Cup first round games all on the same weekend. I think the Champions League final also on that day. Madness. Tailteann will get no coverage or attendances that weekend.

GAA in a world of their own where they think the common GAA supporter does not look to be entertained by other sports.

GAA moaners are in a world of their own too.

There was always championship matches in May.

Always.
I am old enough to.remember all Ireland semifinals in AUGUST.
