General discussion / Re: Catalan Independence Movement

If Catalonia becomes independent will FC Barcelona leave La Liga? Will that be the end of El Classico other than in Europe and Barcelona win the Catalan double every year?

We will always have the El Classic Midlands. Longford Town V Athlone Town

They actually kept their bail conditions and returned to the Police Station😂😂😂😂😂

A lot of brain dead were attracted to the paramilitaries because it made them look like the local hard man. Twenty years in the Kesh knocked that notion out of them

Nice of RTE to miss the teams coming out onto the field due to their yapping and then to talk over the trophy presentation too.

Was not taking any notice but a friend said that Mayo came onto the field without any Music over the PA, Music was blaring out with the introduction of Dublin. Like the way a home team in Soccer does the same.
Didnt notice the music for either, but did notice that Mayo came out early. As per page 1 of the program, Dublin were drawn to come out first, but Mayo seemed to jump the gun. So perhaps the guy on the music button wasn't ready

At least we had Imelda May trying to reinvent herself.
Whos idea was that?

More to the point how come he wasnt starting on the Kerry minor team 2 years ago? Kerry with 4 all ireland winning teams got roughly the pick of 50-60 players to bring the Kerry seniors to the fore in 4-5yrs and take over Dublins mantle
That's what the countryneeds. Another gym manager
U16's are not allowed played inter-county minor.

Think Clifford's education in Tralee IT was a one year Sports Management thing...see this

GAA Discussion / Re: Thank God it was not a draw!

Gas, as we (the poor downtrodden Mayo fans) left Croke Park. The overwhelming feeling was 'Thank God it wasn't a draw'. The Financial as well as the emotional cost was just to much and most were happy it was done and dusted. Who wants to spend more money on Petrol, Food and 80 (cos the GAA of the people don't reduce the price for replays in Football). If there was one small thing that made me happy it was that them greedy corporational whores missed out on screwing us one last time. Small mercies!   ;D
Get a look at the financial accounts for Mayo county board and any club there that has done development and you will see significant funds were given from Croke Park
And then take their ignorant chip off your shoulder

Did Vaughan think he was playing some club game where the big "county" man gets away with murder?
It could have been 15 v 14 and surely advantage Mayo.

There will no doubt be a raft of GAA books coming up to the Christmas season as usual,which I will buy but never get round to reading.Have found book about Cormac Mc Anallen riveting though.Couldn't resist the final chapters first dealing with the shock sudden death and aftermath,and am now engrossed in the early chapters and his time in my alma mater,St Pat's Armagh and the mention of a few teachers who were there in my day.
You're getting great value from your remedial reading class

GAA Discussion / Re: AI Final Ticket Swap
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:37:47 PM »
Any tips on buying a ticket from a tout on Sunday? Where's the best place to go or how do you make sure it's a genuine ticket?

My usual source for an AI ticket doesn't look likely this year.
You look like the type that would sell your tickets for magic beans
 Does your guardian actually let you out alone?

I think ye are seeing something that's not there personally. It was a draw away to Stoke hardly Armageddon ffs. Hughesey is pretty spikey and has plenty of history with opposition  managers... Jose knows how to stir up the media when needed but was there any need for deflection after that result? Hardly

Why even discuss this little spat when you could be laughing at Liverpool?

Galway hurlers didn't bother walking the cup over the Shannon or Suck.
ara sure why bother. it's only been 29 years

Clare crossed the Shannon with Liam 3 times in that period. I realise I'm being pedantic.
Getting to.more all Irelands than Clare and Offaly is massive
Yes. It's great getting to finals and winning one out of every seven

You mustn't have spent too much time in the company of supporters of the Armagh one hit wonders if you think the Kilkenny lads are arrogant.
If they are they have something to be arrogant about

Ronni bought some stinkers. Johnny Hayes from Aberdeen tho, what's that about?
All that was about was removing any possible threat from the rest. Flog him off to Sheffield Wednesday or someone else in due course

Don't you hate it when Nordies are over sensitive?

No, it's very amusing.

This is not a case of "going out of our way to be offended".

Yes, it is.

Ah, I get it. You're a 26-county free stater who couldn't care less about your fellow countrymen. Would you be happy if the Ulster Championship consisted of only three teams?
Well it would be better than the one team championship at the moment

GAA Discussion / Re: AIB Jeff and Kammy road to Croker
« on: September 05, 2017, 05:21:52 PM »
Enjoyable but you do wonder how much of it is choreographed and their "amazement" driven by the fat fees they no doubt are receiving
You probably would prefer the Daniel and Majella B and B roadtrip

McGrath, Halligan should get a joint award. Publicity seeking gobshites. Of course those who voted for them are as bad
