Belfast to Loch an Iúir via Derry City or Ballygawley>Omagh? Google maps suggests both similar duration.
Always go Derry but much of a muchness. Avoids Strabane I suppose.

Avoids Tyrone full stop. 😂

Been away twice, but the guts of €15 a day.

Though was parked in section A both times; obviously more accident than design.

Was there not a Galway boy who was on the same team as Donnelan and Joyce at underage who was supposedly better at the time? (I think? Donnelan and Joyce same age?). It was a st jarlaths team.

John concannon

So did McNicholl play minor for Derry for 4 seasons or 5 years?

Four seasons - 80 to 83
Three AI finals, winning one.

As mentioned above, the bad birthday, so missed out on a fifth year. by about six weeks.

Was playing for Derry minors when he was 14 (end of his third year in St Pat’s)

I don’t think Rian O’Neill was the second best midfielder this year.

Gallagher, for a deep thinker like him, was poor tonight.

I think he deserves one and that was his best chance.

Tokenism.

Stick him in goals then. Every bit as much right to win one there.

Do you think he didn't play midfield?

Nowhere near enough to be considered in the top two.

Kilkenny is a certainty. Rian O’Neill for midfield wouldn’t be a bad shout either, I don’t be think he gets in the 6 forwards.

It would be. Contesting (and winning) throw-ins is quite a low bar for All-Star midfielders.

Thought Derry deserved 2 really with one from either Glass McCluskey or Rogers.

Glass and Rogers having poor semi finals maybe did for them but McCluskey played at a top level from day 1 through to the Galway game where he roasted Shane Walsh.

I'd agree but when they discussed players who missed out you realise the challenge. I know Gallagher mentioned McCarthy, but he almost beat the eventual All Ireland Champions himself in an All Ireland semi final, for that alone he deserves his place. Glass is close but it's clear from their team O'Neill would have to miss out to accomodate him, O'Neill edges it imo.

There is always changes to the eventual All Star team from the one selected by the SG so lets see. There are a lot of Kerry pundits on the SG, and whilst Murphy had a decent season, won an All Ireland, I think a wider panel will give Rafferty the nod, you could sense that is where the SG debate was.

O’Neill the second best midfielder this year?

Rogers and McKinless played more minutes and had better games there than him. And neither would be seriously considered for a slot there. And that’s before we mention Glass.

Some folk aren’t near wise.

Switched to Sky after Cavanagh’s comment on Paddy Russell and Dublin.

I’d say you are only saying that…not a bit of you switched over…

I did actually. Could listen to Canavan all day. McGuinness not far behind. Even Donaghy a massive upgrade on RTÉ panel.

It wasn’t specifically because of that one comment; just the realisation there were likely to similarly banal ones throughout the analysis. And life’s short enough.

Though there were times during the game that I had to turn back to RTÉ as Sky picture was dropping. But that was ok because Darragh moloney was commentating.

Anyone ever use the evening before bag drop at dublin airport?  Sounds like a good job to save a few minutes the morning of your flight

Used it about ten days ago. Well worth doing. Parked in short term car park, straight across to the bag drop, no queues. Back to the car inside fifteen minutes.

The check in / bag drop queues the next morning were awful. For those in them.
How much was the car park for 15 mins?

I presume that was AL. I understand Ryanair aren’t offering it at the moment

I think it was €3.50 for the first hour. Yes, it was AL.

1. Free kicks off the ground from various distances and angles like the rugby boys do.
2. Penalties, but let the opposition choose at least two of the penalty takers:

Four match ban. Would have been one match if he was a player, so doubling that and doubling it again because he wasn’t a member of the match day squad and because he shouldn’t have been anywhere near the melee is about right.

You want to deal with gouging properly, have a rule that allows you to deal with it properly.
