Not if Dublin bring anyone in their best 250 players. Any club team woild do a number on that underdogs team

They’re not good are they? I’d imagine Dublin will play their O’Byrne cup team with a few established players thrown on?

Looking forward to the pre game interview with Jim Gavin.

" the underdogs are a highly motivated team who we have always respected greatly and we will have to be at our very best to give them a competitive game. Our boys know the process and we will stick to the process"

translated as f**k off you journalists are as welcome as a dose of piles

Wicklow never gave a shît about football before so it’s no surprise to see that hasn’t changed.

How short are GAA attention spans? Their proposal is almost point for point a ressurection of the absolutely squalid failure that was the Tommy Murphy Cup.

You obviously never set foot in baltinglass or rathnew

Through my work, I have had up to 2 dozen lgfa county players incl some from mayo  here either on placement or working and over the yearsv i have been amazed at the low opinion all had of Cora...... the last 6 months have brought public what player opinion hss been for years.

It woukdvbdnkn contrast to male peers opinion of Shefflin, Gooch rtc

Being the most talented player everv doesnt make her right. The nearest I can equate to is Lester Piggott,  genius but only popular for his ability not his personality or treatment of others

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.

http://www.the42.ie/ciaran-byrne-carlton-cillian-mcdaid-afl-4286555-Oct2018/

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.....
