Watched it full and uninteruped last night, apart from those 6/7 lost minutes at the start of the 2nd half

Really impressed with Monaghan for me what won it for them was three key things

Rory Beggan's frees. Long range sniper outstanding kicking and kept Monaghan ticking over to thwart any momentum Tyrone were building. Within 50metres you cant foul Monaghan or you'll be punished that's some asset.
McManus star quality: Quiet for most of the game but just as it looking Tyrone had reeled the game in McManus came to the fore and blew the game out of the water
McCarron McAnespie: Both quality footballers and a threat any time they got it. Not sure why the former was subbed

There is a certain confidence in this side that I haven't seen from Monaghan sides in the past. They will have to be consistent

Tyrone should reach the super8s and it wont do any harm to have a run in the qualifiers. Tho it may attribute to fatigue in the super 8s. Colm C and McCann probably should not have started as they were fairly anonymous the back door will give them time to get back to pace. Peter Harte was anonymous too. sending of was very unlike him, probably frustrated. The starting FF line was reasonably impressive especially McAliskey of course. We'll see how  it goes but, we need leaders in the absence of Colm.
and I'd say Monaghan were a lot cuter in possession than in previous championship games,  where once inside the Tyrone half the venture would invariably end up getting ambushed and dispossessed. I checked with BBC NI player and I only see the Fermanagh Armagh game there, did you record the game?

What does GDPR mean for teaching? Iíve heard all sorts of things like you canít have pupilsí work on your desk when youíre not in the room (in case the cleaner looks at it or some shite).

Anyone had any training on it?

Teaching long enough and never heard of that dung

True and Carlow hammered them in a manner similar to the good teams in division 2.

Carlow would lose to everyone else that was in D2 this year, as well as the two teams who are being relegated to it next year. You can't read anything into beating a team as bad as Louth.

Carlow havenít improved that much yet, donít be silly.


Their last performance against Louth was the performance of a solid second tier team. A similar margin of victory as was managed by the top division 2 teams and more than Meath managed.
Kildare are absolutely demoralised at the moment and I can think of every reason as to why we will lose to a well organised, fit and confident Carlow team.

Louth are barely a third division side.
