Belnaleck were junior last year (won through to Ulster final), so they've done very well to come straight up and win intermediate. A coming team, but I think a bit soon to expect much of them in Ulster yet.

I can't believe that the farming community aren't giving the DUP hell around their stance.

Northern Irish agri / dairy is sold on the basis of us maintaining EC standards.  After next March how do the third countries update their required standards to say that UK standards are acceptable?  Will they need to be tested / audited? And if so, how long will that take?
What happens before those standards are changed?

In terms of other sectors effected:

In the material handling sector (a sector where NI, and specifically Tyrone lead the world) the equipment tends to confirm with the EC Machinery Directive, and is CE marked accordingly.  The body that is attesting that the equipment applies to the CE standard needs to be based in the EU.  This will really complicate things for the manufacturing sector.

The aerospace industry is very tightly regulated and is governed by the European Aviation and Safety Agency (EASA).  Again will UK manufacturers be able to supply parts to be used in planes as they will be outside of EASA?

Dairy farmers nearly all to a man voted leave. Red tape, being told what to do and when to do it by Brussels being the main reasons. And you know what? They are dead right. Regardless of what happens the UK government will support them. So for the farming sector there is probably no downside.
Personally I'd love to see the bundle of hungry c***ts being put on the side of the road, but that's unlikely.

Utter bullshit. Incredibly inaccurate.

I don't understand what you think the relevance of it happening directly after he caught a mark is. That doesn't change in the slightest whether it was deliberate or accidental. The ref was there, he deemed it accidental.

If they want to appeal, they can (as you say, presuming entitled to under the rules) - releasing a statement would not seem to be the best way to go about that, and indeed, would seem to be deliberately designed to escalate this in the (uninformed) public eye

Watching frampton's documentary last night it was interesting seeing "leave eu" written all over the side of houses in tigers bay and then eu flags on the 11th night bonfire. I wonder what reasons these people have for wanting to leave the eu??

Before their fairly recent about turn, wasn't Sinn Fein pretty anti-Eu, too?

SF very anti EU. The UKIP of Ireland. Consistently campaigned for No votes in all referendums. Didn't register as an official remain party and tellingly didn't campaign for a remain vote. West Belfast a SF stronghold had the lowest turnout in the referendum of all constituencies.

That's just false

No itís not. And the article (from 2015) you linked says they will campaign for yes vote but in reality they didnít bother.

You don't have a clue what you're talking about, so you should stop.

What exactly does prolonging this achieve? Who cares what the man on the street thinks about the incident? At the end of the day those who want it to be deliberate will see that in the video, and those who don't, won't.

Moy have released a statement saying they disagree with their own county boards interpretation of the incident. I don't know on what planet they think that's a good idea. If they really are that interested in having a player retrospectively punished for what appears to be a debatable incident, releasing statements to the media would not seem to be the best way to go about it, and it certainly contravenes part of their self-same statement:

'The club also condemned online abuse that appeared against both sides in the aftermath of the incident and appealed for restraint, and wished Edendork well in the next round of the championship.'

Such a shit show

He did, as did Gooch, Donaghey, and many of the others Cavanagh has been compared to on this thread. I don't, however, recall their books slating those they were involved with to the same extent (regardless of Seans over-sensitivity [imo] to one passage in MHs book), nor do I recall other gaa figures coming out and stating that what they had included about them was complete lies.

To conclude, releasing a book isn't at all reprehensible - using it to settle scores, and filling it with bullshit, is.

Yous are watching too much of the Sunday Game  ::)

For me:

Tyrone v Monaghan in Omagh - sensational game (the second game was also great)
Donnellys goal Fermanagh v Monaghan
Monaghan in general
Carlows joy
Atmosphere before Ulster final in Clones
First 20 min of All Ireland final
Jack McCaffreys recovery - better than ever

Bud, I've no doubt Cavanagh does plenty of good, but so do the people he slates in his book. Do Mickey Harte etc and their relatives not also have access to the internet or bookshops? A legacy of the greatest manager Tyrone have ever had, and one of the best in football as whole is being tarnished by one of his greatest players to sell a book. That deserves criticism in my eyes. If he is going to question others methods and actions then he is leaving himself open to the same.

The real issue here was the attempt to slur the ballymurphy families - said councillor seemed to miss that point and made it about herself a bit.

By the same token, if the players feel intimidated by the way he is delivering his criticism, they are fully entitled to tell him to shove it up his hole and opt out without the county board banning them from club football.

They didn't just walk out, they tried to orchestrate a mutiny. Very different things.

This is not giving off to each other, this is a form of bullying. It can't be denied, he was on a power trip and took delight in it.

"He basically said he didn't give a "f**k" about how many All Stars I had or what name I had made for myself in football. He was the manager and what he said goes this year."

"I knew what was coming. I was brought away from all players and all of management. It was like a personal attack that evening, I can only describe it as I've never felt so intimidated in my entire life.

"He told me I was getting absolutely roasted at training, that I was performing absolutely shite, that the reason I was distracted the previous night at training was because I was so caught up with going to him with this suggestion of bringing this guest player in.

"He was doing this action - 'you're listening to the others, you're listening to the others' - and I was standing back. He was getting visibly aggressive with me at this stage. It was probably the first time I stood up to him and said 'who are these others you're referring to? I don't understand what you're on about.'

"Peter had mistreated this player, excluded her from the team that evening and treated her really badly. Me and Denise were consoling her and Denise was apologising to this player.

"She was told she wasn't selected on the team that night on purpose and that she wasn't going to make the Connacht final squad. Two weeks beforehand to tell this to a player is not acceptable.

"While me and Denise were consoling this other player, the manager was upstairs having a laugh and joke with another girl who was good friends with the girl who was upset and saying 'oh you'll have a fun journey home tonight.'

Power trip  ;D

You're having a laugh. The above is bullshit, anyone hurt by any of it needs to have a look at themselves. I would say there are a lot of people having a serious think about whether they actually want to get involved in ladies football if this is the sort of shite thats flung around.

A couple of fairly serious allegations in there.
I dunno what Peter Leahy does for a living, but I'm sure he has female colleagues.
Now we're getting into legal territory.

What in there is serious?

This won't go legal. The statements aren't clearly defamatory really and even if they were, they can be argued as truth. Leahy should have enough between the ears to stay well away from a solicitors office.

You're right on all counts.
