A fella was explaining the other day that the reason Casey has those red flashing lights on top of the floodlights is in case pilots would mix it up with Casement Aerodrome at Baldonnel.

i remember a final when the Derry Champions were favourites (Ballinderry i think) they were playing Cross at Casement, must have bee the only time Cross were not favourites for the final. but the weather was dreadfull and Cross beat them in a very low scoring final.

Boys are looking forward to it, training tonight and good buzz about them.
Remember it well. A large crowd gathered at the back of Casement stand* to get out of the rain/wind/hail. Was something like 0-05 0-03.

*We need a name for the stand (Is there one?). I propose The Roddy McCorley Aircraft Hanger Stand.

0-05 0-03 alright, John Donaldson type of day. Had to swim across a large moat to get onto the pitch afterwards.

Them St Gall's boys will be thirsty on Sunday night. Unless it's a draw. No drink policy was strictly imposed and adhered to during the hurling and football runs.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Seems TG4 have dropped the Ulster SFC final in favour of the Connaght football final as the deffered match.

I would say it was but how can you know for certain?

their anti-ulster bias gets worse and worse, there's probably more irish speakers in the belfast than there are in galway, but it wouldn't be as handy for the crew to get to - one thing in our favour, they're unlikely to find a pitch to play the connaught final on :D

Galway gaeltacht compromises nearly 50% of the entire gaeltacht population.

The Galway Gaeltacht has a population of 40,052 and represents 47% of total Gaeltacht population. The Galway Gaeltacht encompasses a geographical area of 1,225 km2 (473 sq mi). This represents 26% of total Gaeltacht land area. The largest settlement areas are Spiddal and Carraroe. Carraroe is located 48 km (30 mi) west of Galway City, Spiddal is located 19 km (12 mi) west of Galway City

aye, was aware of the stats, there were great grants available if people could pass themselves as 'irish speaking'.

There are but there are still far more Irish speakers in Galway than anywhere else in the country. I should know as I'm one myself. To say there is more in Belfast is just completely daft.

Just a suggestion.

In future, could the Footrball coverage be on before the Hurling?

When its on after Hurling, you realise how pedestrian and how tame it can be.

Just a suggestion.
