In the tightest seat in the whole 2019 election, I would imagine they would be backing the person who can retain the seat for the party.

A high profile big hitter is required in this seat for either side to get over the line.

Quote from: marty34 on May 29, 2024, 09:16:31 PMThis is the type of candidate that SF are 'going after' now I think.  Moving away, to a certain extent, from the old guard. Pat is new blood, if you pardon the pun!

If she is successful, would she go down the route of Health Minister at some stage? She would have a better knowledge that most of this portfolio.

Maybe some long term planning here but needs to get elected first obviously.

Snapchat might know more?

Bet there are a few Sinn Fein members pissed off in FST tonight who have worked their @@@@@ off the past few years and hoping that maybe they would in with a shout of being selected .............

The hard workers are usually overlooked these days anyway for someone who is the "right fit"

Quote from: thejuice on May 29, 2024, 08:34:38 PMThe same bunch on the county board that wanted Andy McEntee out at the start of 2022 wanted O'Rourke. No idea why. As ever with Meath CB they are a law unto themselves and don't offer any explanations as to why they decide things. But we let them get away with it I suppose.

The fact that the whole back room team walked after year one was telling.
and more worryingly apparently Colm had been lined up to take over should the vote have worked. So it gets more and more sinister. Meath cb have been a disaster for years. We still have lads there that procured the floodlights at a huge cost that had to be removed due to them been seconds and not safe. There's more openness in North Korea than in Meath cb.

Quote from: easty88 on May 29, 2024, 11:57:09 PMAs Tyrone supporters, it's very frustrating at the minute for all of us. Our lads deserve the best and it doesn't seem to be happening. We have the talent in the county to compete with anyone in Ireland over the next few years but we seem to be struggling. Our minors have underachieved in last number of years and are currently in a B competition which is embarrassing for Tyrone. Our seniors don't look to be progressing. the u20 team had great success but it seems the u20s were just such a talented group. But I think dook has to get some credit here as the same team couldn't win minor all Ireland which is easier won than an u20? I hate slating managers as they are all good enough fellas, giving their time but when is there going to be some foresight. Who is appointing managers and are there no better candidates?

But it's 2 different u20 all ireland winning teams.

Absolutely - Westmeath will be a very tricky game for us. Looks like we won't have Comer or Finnerty.
They were the two that dragged us over the line in Sligo.

Quote from: GAABoardMod5 on Today at 12:23:02 AMNot true...you are still referencing walkover scenario.

I think I'll go to bed, especially as I posted the rules in #361 and identified that the Westmeath score was relevant at that point. But then lost confidence in my own post.

(ii) Scoring Difference (subtracting the total Scores Against from total Scores For);


Westmeath will not be easily hammered, and given that they almost beat Tyrone in the last game last year they will hang on to the end. At minimum they will determine second and third place and that could be material.


Yes think it's only in walkover scenario that score difference is based on the results between teams involved.

The other point is that people are being very quick to write Westmeath off here, unless Galway's walking wounded from the last day (and before) are all back, I think their trip to Mullingar this Sunday could be pretty tricky!!
