Jesus that article is some bullshit. One to watch for Leitrim - 34 yr old Emlyn Mulligan is one of the gems.

Cavan with no Gearoid McKiernan this weekend due to suspension, so thats 5/6 points less than usual for the lads. Should still have enough to beat Leitrim you would hope.

Who will gain most from his demise (Assuming it plays out that way). Alliance or the DUP?

Is there a politician in unionism who is not a complete moron?

Former pup dr John Kyle and a boy Robbie butler in the uup. Robin Swann not that bad either. The rest well the less said the better.

As a people, unionist have little or no leadership in the midst. You'd almost feel sorry for them

Did Armagh not have to change its crest in the mid noughties over something to do with the city owning the crest and not the GAA?
Yip
E will see more and more counties designing their own crests to maximise merchandising .

Cavan did the same as their old crest was the co council crest, new one is copyrighted by cavan gaa.

we stumbled across a Kia Carens 7 seater and I literally mean that. We've looked at Santa Fe's and the big Kia Sportage which my wife didn't like as it was "too big" and I just happened to ask the sales rep if they'd any other 7 seaters and it turned out I was leaning against it..

They aren't overly big but I've put all 5 in mine regularly for long enough trips with a little storage and its fine, decent enough fit out on the "4" version, not overly powerful but no big issues in the 60K miles I've put on it to date.

Its amazing how car sizes are perceived in Ireland and in the US.

In the US, the Sportage is classed as a compact (i.e. small) SUV.

Kia sells the larger Sorrento here, which would be classed as mid-size, similar to the Santa Fe.

Then they have the even larger Telluride, which amazingly is also mid-size by the ludicrous US standards (its a bloody big vehicle). Gets rave reviews BTW.

Cost obviously has a lot to do with it.

I have a Subaru Outback, a big enough car by most sensible standards, also because I have kids. If I was in Ireland, I wouldn't be able to afford it in a million years. The base engine version of the model I have, which is the only engine they offer in Ireland, costs 61K euros (roughly 70K dollars). I got the turbo version here for about 40K dollars.

I assume he meant the Sorrento as it as you say is the equivalent of the Sante Fe. They sell them here in Ireland too and they are a fine bus. In fact, if you try to buy a new one you will be waiting they are so popular and there are supply issues.

Have three kids under 5. How have you all managed it vehicle wise? Don't want to go for a people carrier to be able to fit three child seats but the larger jeeps with sufficient isofix etc are all crazy money

I think a VW Touran can take 3 across in the back - and has done so for a number of years now.

OK, people carrier it is - but a small enough one rather than a 3 row bus.

I was in this boat a few years back. I had an outlander, sorrento and a Peugeot 5008. All can fit 3 child seats in back and I went with 7 seat versions of them all although I seldom used the back 2. Sorento was my favourite

Isn't it it inevitable that in 10 days time we are going to have a huge amount of covid positives. Is that the idea that we are going to let covid rip now?  If that's the case do people just go to work now with a sniffle again? This whole jump into two footed in the Republic seems very odd to me.

Interesting at end Beggan wasted a full minute taking the free yet ref made no allowance. Is he not allowed to account for time wasted like that?

Cavan / Re: Official Cavan GAA Thread
« on: January 22, 2022, 05:38:14 PM »
It is a good structure but its a very win at all cost structure.  There is more then 8 teams capable of playing Senior in Kerry.

And Kerry have been doing it for years ,so wouldn't be easy to emulate it in Cavan.  In kerry they are proud of their regional areas, North  West  Mid ,South, East.  I don't think that players in Cavan would have that same gra to with a amalgamationafter being knocked out with the club.

With the split season maybe they could trial  regional leagues in Cavan without County players?

You'd swear Kerry won every all Ireland going. They don't. This is a very Kerry specific set up that doesn't exist anywhere else. I dont believe it would work in Cavan. Tyrone are all ireland champions, Dublin before that. What do they do. We have amalgamated the arse out of our minor club teams yet our minor county team have been hopeless for years.

I never actually mentioned Kerry dominating at County level. The point was about their dominance in Junior and Intermediate level.Which is helped with so few Senior teams

Munster Junior winners https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munster_Junior_Club_Football_Championship
Intermediate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munster_Intermediate_Club_Football_Championship

Cavan away to Monaghan in the U20 Ulster Championship.

I wasn't arguing with you, just pointing out Kerrys system won't work in Cavan and at end of the day they are not Irelands strongest county anymore. The win so much jnr and intermediate as they pretty much cheat the system by how they set up their championships as you've pointed out. Maybe in cavan we could have 4 teams senior playing each other home and away twice, then 4 intermediate doing the same and throw the rest into junior. We'd be racking up the intermediate and junior titles then. (A joke)
