No mention of any allocation to Gaelic language schemes...
Or compulsory Ulster fries for school lunches. What a sell out!

having the draw on radio surely creates the impression of a rigged draw or am I just too cynical! Is there a video of the draw anywhere just to see those big logs being mixed around before picking them out!!

Yes I'd agree. It's easier to put the required balls on the radiator to heat them up.

Not only that, but it shows a disrespect for qualifier teams, most who are lower division teams. You can be sure the super 8's won't be drawn on the radio!

No reason it couldnt be done at the end of the sunday game fs

Its about raising the profile of the games. If it wasnt on this morning RTE  would fill in with 5 minutes of shite from the Lions camp

Down not going to be a soft touch anymore. The slow learners are catching up

Nelson McCausland is an odious bollix, but one of the reasons he is so odious is that he understands perfectly well but spouts bigotry to those who do not. One thing he said on the radio there was that the billion would bring SF back into the Assembly as they main objective was in the South and they couldn't be supporting austerity in the 6 counties, now they don't need to. Sad, but likely true.
But Sinn Fein want Arlene Foster to stand down. They wont betray their principles surely

I think a NI with a nationalist majority would be more likely to be decent simply because nationalists are the locals and don't have the persecution complex that goes with being the settlers.Anywhere that was colonised by outsiders the outsiders have problems.

I dont see any great trend among Shiiners to extend the hand of friendship. Their attitude to the opening of Croke Park to rugby etc, the admission of PSNI to the GAA and their triumphalism following the Assembly elections show they are no better than the other side.
Did you think that all up by yourself?
I did. I have the ability to see through the bullshit emanating from Patnell Sq and Falls Rd unlike the useful idiots who believe that shite

Just watched the great Kris Kristofferson at Glastonbury via the BBC.  So sad to see him stumble through his greatest songs, his voice quavering and weak, a shadow of his younger self.  Time has taken its toll on him and really not unexpected as he is now 81.  I found it so sad I had to turn it over.

I googled to see if this was a one off situation but it appears that it is not, yet he is still being booked and touring even going on solo tours that expose his frailties.

Clonliffe College Car Park -
The Clonliffe College car park is situated 5 minutes from Croke Park Stadium. The car park has 2,000 spaces which include 100 disabled spaces and is accessible via Drumcondra Road Lower. Parking is available for just €10 on specified match days only and you will need to purchase your pass in advance
 When did this start, booking in advance ??

Since the Corporate Health and Safety gobshites butted in

CP execs are rubbing their hands at this.

Only a matter of time before all food and drink are banned from being taken in. Another example of the €€€€ coming before the people

What?  :o With everything that happened in the UK and France recently, plus Ireland being listed by ISIS as a high target, it's a necessary course of action.

Then why only Croke Park?  ???

Its only Croke Park have issues with running on to the pitch. Look at Thurles last Sunday

Last two Galway v Roscommon Connacht finals went to replays. The replay date for this final is Sat 15th July and if that happens the loser of a replay will only have 6 days to recover before playing their round 4 tie and if they manage to win (stats against them) they will have to face a well rested Kerry in the last eight. Anyone else find this scheduling to be total nonsense?

What do you suggest instead Cunny?

One thing i would suggest is that Connacht final loser has at least two weeks to prepare for their qualifier game even if the final goes to a replay.

But how, Cunny? There are only so many weekends in the summer. If teams don't win games fixtures will backlog. It's as inevitable as day following night.

In the Qualifiers earlier iterations I think the fixture-makers were blind-sided by the difference loss of recovery-time made, but right now it seems to me the gaps are as good as can be hoped for, not least with the introduction of A- and B- streams in the qualifiers. It's to allow for as long a gap as is feasible that they were introduced. But if teams are drawing and not winning games, there will be consequences. There are only so many weekends in the summer, as I say.

Get used to it because when the Super 8 kicks there will be a big rush to get rid of the no hopers

Tipp are out to 4/1 now
Worth a punt.
Paddy Power this morning.
Galway 2/1
Tipp.    7/2
Cork 9/2
Clare 13/2
Kilkenny 10/1
If Tipp can get through the qualifier into Croke pk they could still do it

Checked that yesterday and kk were 9/1, wonder why they moved. Surely worth a pop at that if they can get Fennelly back?

I honestly don't think Kk will be there. All the sounds say Fennelly won't be rushed. The panel isn't what it was. Too many greats have gone

People talking like they are rank outsiders.
They are 7/2 second favourites FFS

They are best of whats in the qualifiers and could face the winners of Wexford Galway in a semi final .If Galway win Leinster they will be booking the open top bus for Eyre Square and would be open to flop again. Tipp need to get their act together but no reason why they cant.

A preview show full of yerras and I suppose.... no thanks, a proper highlights show on a Monday night showing coverage of all the weekend games if what is needed.
You mean a show full of "look"    "we have great respect"  "Ruislip is a hard place to go" and a few Davy Fitzisms

It's a Connacht final. Expect the unexpected. Galway arent as good as they think. Ross aren't as bad as they think. If Ross forwards had shown some guts in the last ten minutes in 2016 they would have won ad Galway would have avoided another Croke Park embarassment
