Cannot believe FF are still a force in the Republic after nearly sinking the country a few years back. Jaysus, people have short memories. I know the SDLP are in dire straits, but to hitch their wagon to that shower of corrupt clowns shows how bad things are for wee Colum. Saying that, McCrossan would fit right in with FF, the snivelling little shit

When it comes to politics, people have short memories. Thatcher and her Tory's wreck the place, then the Brits couldn't get them back quick enough.
People have short memories. The Provos plant bombs ,murder innocent men women and children, disappear so called informers on the instruction of the worst informer of all in a hierarchy riddled with informers and still people will vote for their political wing. It isn't only FF have a history.

Some years ago Robinson was talking at a DUPUDA annual conference of making the Union more attractive to Catholics.
Then Belfast City Council stopped flying the Butcher's and he jumped back behind the tribal barricade.
The Dupes and Unionist majority Councils seem totally unwilling to take any cognisance of the fact there are 2 Nationalities in the 6 Cos.

I agree. But it will be to their detriment. A happy Nationalist isn't talking about a UI.

Split Reserves East & West to avoid long journeys and Div 1,2,3 in both. Play on a Friday night say. You'd soon see participation numbers rocket. But this is too good of an idea to be implemented. I'd love to play a bit but I work long hours and with young children the weekend is for them and not me.

It's interesting times certainly. A lot of Republicans are hanging their hope on 50%+1 catholic majority. Unfortunately that ain't going to work. Any new Ireland will have to be all encompassing, where a place exists for Unionists and Loyalists. It's a challenge to Nationalism and Republicanism to make the case. How it would work and what it would look like.
While Brexit is a challenge and a lot of doomsday scenarios are touted about, in reality it probably won't resemble the Mad Max scenario that some portray. SF seem to hope it will and are probably pushing for this. They hated Europe all along anyway and as the saying goes never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake. So they probably see an equation Brexit + demographics = UI.
Nationalism can't hang onto demographics or indeed Brexit to do this job for us. We must make the case.

Interestingly, last night on BBC's The View Christopher Stalford seem to see the value in making an honest case for the Union. If Unionism (ie: The DUP) were able to promote a society in NI where Nationalism had it's place and OO shows of strength, bonfires etc where more controlled or certainly less triumphalist for example, this would could placate a huge swathe of Nationalists who have no real strong desire to see a UI. There's a comfortable Nationalism out there. Brexit and other issues does poke it from time to time, but for the most part it's happy with its lot.

County Board do not have a sponsor for the Club Championship yet because Donnelly Bros pulled out after what happened with Mc Aleer and Rushe! FACT! That's why the draw hasn't been made yet!

Donnelly Brothers three year contract for sponsorship expired at the end of last season so it may also be related to that surely?

The negative publicity after the Galbally incident may have deterred them from renewing or perhaps they just thought they weren't getting value for money? They're still the kit van sponsor so it's not as if they've pulled out completely.

The way the club championship is rushed through totally diminishes it. A box ticking exercise.  Is little wonder they pulled the plug

What was the galbally incident?

http://www.irishnews.com/news/2016/09/12/news/banners-with-northern-ireland-map-removed-at-gaa-match-690737/

I never knew that happened. That's Galbally all over. What an arsehole.

You'll find it was an individual reaction not supported by Galbally.

Am i missing something here the banners were taken down because of co.uk??

was because they had a map of "Norhern Ireland" as in six counties - partitionist. Can see his point but there might have been a better way to go about it... like bring it up at next meeting

What point? It's Donnelly's f**king logo. Jesus wept.

Donnelly's "Here's a load of free sponsorship money."
Village idiot 1 "Sorry but due to the partitionist nature of your logo we cannot accept it."
Donnelly's "Ok - sure we'll give to some other sporting body who would be grateful"
Village idiot 1 "Thanks, I'll let the local OC of the IRA know"
Donnelly's "Dead on"
Village idiot 1 "Ireland is one step closer to reunification! Rejoice!"

In Dublin I believe the county board assigns the schools to each club and then that clubs GPO can only attend those schools......

co board needs to take over inter club bickering and work out a system that will maximise the numbers playing irrespective of what club.

Don't see any issue with Bredagh's fees at all

Carryduff you mean!

Compared to some South Dublin clubs I'm sure it does seem reasonable but then again hurling isn't seen as a working class sport in a lot of those areas.

I know we couldn't ask for such memberships and hope to have any youngsters come through the gates.

Carryduff i meant........Bredagh are £70


90% of all dublin clubs would be at this rate and more I believe. Clubs only charge what its costing to run the show presumably

Is there a parish rule in Antrim and Down ??

Most Dublin clubs, certainly the bigger dual ones, would be close to €200 for juveniles. Their academys would be close to €100. Pitch hire for all these kids is an expensive business.

I think these costs are incredible. But then if it is expensive for pitches etc. I always loved that our games were more or less free. £5 or £10 yearly membership. Surely these costs are prohibitive to lots of families? If you have 3 or 4 children at €200 a pop, plus boots, jerseys, shorts etc. It would work into almost a €1000 for the year?

Why would Gerry McIlroy mark his opponents ball? Or be allowed to? This is ridiculous. It just doesn't happen.

can someone get this fella Rory's autograph

you havent a effin clue

if you talk to anyone involved competitive amateur golf from 10 years ago esp from outside the north, they will tell you about the charming Gerry McIlroy and his equally affable bankroller / son.

acts like marking an opponents ball with L before a round to signify he was a loser and plenty of classy acts like it.

running charitable foundations to avoid tax does plenty of good but it wont buy class

How can you mark an opponents ball? This is bullshit.

People getting carried away. Individual sports people at the very top are typically single minded and driven. It's this very characteristic that can lead people to not liking/ hating them.

Carryduff charge £100 for an child to be a member. It's a lot of money to fork out on 7 year old who might not like it. They'd need to have a look at that. Clubs in affluent areas can get carried away sometimes. The clubs should look at themselves first rather than the fixtures, development squads

Most elite level sportspeople are arseholes. Tiger is an absolute rocket for example.

I have lived in and around Strabane, Portstewart, Lurgan and Dungannon in my time and work near Portadown at the minute.  Lurgan is not as bad as its made out to be, got more going for it than Dungannon and Portadown.  Strabane is not as bad either.  I take it posters here haven't been to places like Carrickmore, Newtonstewart, Castlederg, Middletown, Derrynoose, Limavady or Coalisland?

An utter shitehole. Full of travellers, 10p RA men and benefits cheats. No-one from Coalisland admits to being from it they all say Edendork.
Traffic in the town is a nightmare as Parking Attendants give it a wide berth due to ongoing intimidation.

Darren McCurry with 0-08 for Edendork. Showing what he is capable of with some freedom.

Maybe Harte should write to the top counties and ask them if they could give him a bit more space like at club level.

or maybe Harte could give his players some freedom to play... as Sean Cavanagh said about last year they were "slaves to a system." We'll see how it develops this summer when they meet the big guns

I'm sure Gavin tell's the Dublin lads go out and have a bit of craic and do as you please. This system stuff and lack of freedom is an easy excuse. A lack of freedom doesn't make you miss important free kicks for example.

some difference the system Tyrone could play 2003 - 2010 and last few years and Im guessing Sean would know

The next time Tyrone are playing Clonoe we should give Darren a shout... Notice he kicked a last minute free to win it yesterday as well, pity he couldn't do the same for Tyrone over the last few years

Should be noted in context, Connor McAliskey missed a last kick free to draw it.

Can we blame Harte for him missing this free?

Sure what do I care about what Mickey Harte thinks?

I'm just saying if men are going to slate a lad for scoring a winning free as an ex Tyrone player for what they perceive as not stepping up when it counts, they should maybe worry more about a current Tyrone player missing frees under the same circumstances in the same game.

Or is that maybe too logical?

You need to turn on your sense of humour.

going back 13 years to the west of ireland i have a intense dislike of McIlroy and his zealot of a father and all connected to them. It may not be rational but most who have crossed their paths since would know where i am coming from. I respect the money raised by the PR / Charitable foundation but i will delight when i see him depending on sponsors passes to play tournaments.

Give me gentlemen like Paul Dunne, Shane Lowry, Padraig harrington, Graeme McDowell and Paul McGinley any day of the week

My point is Rory wants a yes man on the bag, so he got one, but it wont call his putts so that one is all down to his own failings

You need to let go.....
