I got the impression it was the 1sf time he seen it and didn't realise what it was like. God forbid be then does some research before writing the piece
As stated, this is his 2nd article calling for it to be banned. The 1st was 2 and a half years ago.

It's a pity it didn't happen. To think there was talk of awarding the freedom of the city to Conor McGregor. It seems there is nothing you can't say or do to promote a fight as long it brings in the Pay per views

That’s not just limited to MMA tho

True, but the stuff McGregor comes out with is outrageous and frankly family/religion/race of his opponents are areas he seems to take particular enjoyment in insulting. Also using footage of him throwing stuff at the bus previously to promote the fight was ridiculous. That was something you would expect from the WWE, except all their story lines are scripted and not real life!

Is this UFC  really real life. To me it's as scripted as WWE ever was with pretty predictabe results

I see Cillian McDaid has been released by Carlton Blues, would be a huge boost for Galway.

Big boost alright. Super talent. In an area where Galway need an upgrade as well.

Surprised he's back so soon. He was mad keen to get out there. Seems like it was his decision too.


Very few cone back and play like Paul Earley or Mickey Quinn. Most have broken bodies.

Hopefully only one year hadn't caused any injuries. A serious footballer and a fit McDaid a huge asset for Galway

JP McManus’ tax issue is not new news. So to those people using the news of the donation to the GAA clubs as an opportunity to vent about his tax status, would you be happier if he didn’t give this money to the GAA and will you be lobbying your club not to accept it as a point of principle?

These attempts to pretend you can't have an opinion on tax dodging just because he gave a few Euros to the GAA are a crock of shít.


What tax dodging.... not domiciled here and earns his money abroad.  Invests and supports more in direct contributions in ROI than this gaa grant every year with no fanfare.....

Well then he has a lot to answer for as captain, knowing this, but never raising it with the manager.

He knows he dare not defy the dictator harte or even bring up the issue for someone else. He really does seem to run a regime of fear.

Who doesn't run a dictatorship? Name one successful manager who doesn't? He's the manager, it's his call. You'd think by talking to you Dublin and the likes run some sort of utopian system where everyone has equal say.

Lad that's awful rubbish. This effects more than his 1 team, it effect the wider Tyrone, Ulster and GAA. It's unacceptable carry on. If you can't see the long term damage this could do you must be blind. Maybe Tyrone are missing out on a top protestant forward who's heard about Mickey set up and doesn't fancy being the odd one out.

Well put itchy

At cost I believe the houses is, but either  way an arrangement underwritten by arguiably the 2nd highest funding  private individual involved in the GAA.

Sean Mulryan has kept us afloat for a long long time

McStay is very likeable  and you've got to admire him for actually giving it a go but those scorelines in the Super 8's aren't a true reflection of the players Roscommon have, they went backwards results wise in the championship in 2018. Roscommon should have been a lot more competitive then they were.

They got a fair trimming off Mayo last year too in fairness.

Defendivecerakness and lack of fitness didn't happen this year alright

All he did to back it up was catch the ball and be on a good team. There’s players up and down the country who could have done what he did I’d give the same opportunities. Limited footballer and unlimited gob.

I’m not going to pretend I like or respect him because he’s retiring.

Would you think Kerry would have won 2006 or 2014 without him .

He wasn't whier than white and never pretended yo be but very few backs could ever manage him which is s fair testament to ability.

And he is seriously good company off field in my limited exposure......

Won't be the last we will hear of him. Happy retirement and an example to loads of players how to maximise the gifts you have and of the need to slog it out. He arguably could have had cause to retire every year since 2013.

I brought him in to speak to TY students last year and the word back from everyone was that his enthusiasm  was infectious

And how many are dropping out of club football because of the lack of football?

I give up, how many?
There were no Senior club games in Tyrone from 01st July until last week,
Fat lot of good the new condensed intercounty season did so.

County board or Mickey Harte decision??
