IIRC Liam was either the judge or one of the judges that decided who won the "Best GAA Website" in the annual McNamee Awards.

RIP.

Good guy with a chair stops bad guy with a gun.

A churchgoer armed with a folding chair reportedly helped stop the suspect in the Alabama church shooting that left three people dead.

The suspect in the shooting at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, identified by police as 70-year-old Robert Findlay Smith, was charged with capital murder, The Associated Press reported.

Two victims of the shooting died at the scene, while a third was treated and later died at UAB Hospital, Insider previously reported.

Rev. Doug Carpenter, a pastor who served at St. Stephen's until 2005, told the Associated Press that a churchgoer in his 70s charged Smith with a folding chair, disarming him amid the shooting.

"He hit him with a folding chair, wrestling him to the ground, took the gun from him and hit him in the head with his own gun," said Carpenter, who told The AP he was not present during the shooting on Thursday but spoke with witnesses of the tragedy.

Vestavia Hills Police Department Captain Shane Ware said the actions of the unidentified churchgoer were "extremely critical in saving lives," per The AP.

"The person that subdued the suspect, in my opinion, was a hero," Ware said.

GAA Discussion / VEO Cameras 🎥
« on: June 15, 2022, 09:29:15 PM »
I've seen these cameras crop up at times in the last year or so at some football matches (and a couple of local junior soccer games as well), anyone here actively involved on using one of these devices for their club?

I see Clann na nGael are fielding a combined team with Craigbane at U13 & U15 levels in Derry this year - anyone familiar with it know how that works?

Under 13 is understandably difficult to grade well. Prior to the age levels change the autumn U13 mini-league helped balance these things a bit before the U14 competitions the following year, but to do that now you'd need some sort of U12 competition in its place which would seem a bit much considering U11.5 is done under Go-Games.

I see the youth fixtures committee have decided to start the u15 league on 16th July, probably the biggest holiday week of the year.. ridiculous decision.. will be a few games conceded early on id imagine especially for the smaller clubs and it being peak holiday season

Strange start date all right. I see that except for Grade 3, all the grades are being played as a single section, single round-robin. Some sort of experiment?

I don't think there is forward or back marks nor kick out marks.  so no marks in general

Yes and Ladies football is the easiest games you'll get
BiB - Sorry, you're correct. That also explains how long ago I refereed them!

In terms of playing rules, there are three key differences between the mens & womens ladies versions of Gaelic football...

* In the ladies game, the ball may be lifted from the ground by the hands by a player as long as she is in a "standing" position i.e. has at least one foot on the ground with no other part of the body from the knee up touching the ground.
* Kickouts may be taken from the hands.
* All deliberate body contact is forbidden.

The first two matter little in terms of fundamental game play compared to the mens game, the third one is the most different - but in the mens game the only deliberate bodily contact allowed within the rules is the side-shoulder charge (except for the goalkeeper in his own small rectangle), all others are technically forbidden. However most referees in the mens game tend to allow more "deliberate" physical contact than the rules would appear to allow. The rules of play concerning the ladies game tends to be more explicit as to what is and isn't allowed.

I'm (technically) a qualified ladies football referee but only done referring mens boys football at blitzes, but from speaking to some other referees in Tyrone whom do officiating in both codes, all of them have said that the ladies games is easier to referee and I'd concur.

The 1/4 finals are made up of:
3 Munster teams
2 Connaught teams
2 Ulster teams
1 Leinster

Is there anything the GAA could do to alleviate this problem with Munster football being too strong?
Maybe move one of them into the Ulster Championship?
Move some more Ulster teams into the Tailteann Cup to help them improve?
