Clubs referring to themselves as "the town". How unimaginative is that?

Nothing to do with imagination - it's tradition.
C'mon the Town has been the catchcry of Zach's home club, Portlaoise, for decades (as indeed it has been for other towns, e.g. Athlone Town FC in soccer).

Congratulation to Zach - he did his town proud.

Hundreds of GAA clubs are towns.

His country!

Hes awesome.

Up there with Rory, Shane and Katie now 😁

But Aussie Rules is a poor enough watch. I watch a lot of sports, and Id prefer NFL, cricket, baseball, F1 to Aussie rules

Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

Confirmed this evening. Geelong category B rookie for 2023 season.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Good luck to him, hopefully when he does return he will still be able to play county football.
While no one player will win an All-Ireland, his loss to Mayo is huge.
We don't have the depth of talent of a Kerry, Dublin, here his loss would be less significant.
