Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

Credit to St Galls, we simply had no answer to them today. They stamped their authority on the game early and didn't stop. Their football was classy...a reminder from some of their stalwarts why they were one of the best teams in the country just a few years ago. Credit where it's due they were too good for us when it mattered.
Casement's were possibly a bit unlucky in the concession of two of the goals but failing to cope with the threat posed by MP was their undoing.....he scored 2-07.....leaves 1-04 for the rest and he did set up the third goal.

Where was MR2......he has been quiet.
General discussion / Guest Speaker required
« Last post by Emmett on Today at 09:55:40 AM »
A local family are organising an evening in memory of a loved one they recently lost as a result of life long mental health problems. The aim is to generate funds for Mental Health charities and of course increase awareness in the area.

Omagh is a possible venue for this evening and the organisation is moving along nicely but there are one or two things they require advice on.

Would anyone out there be aware of a Guest Speaker and how to contact them) who would be appropriate for such an event? As this will be a cross community event they want to steer away from Politicians.

Also, a band would be required so any recommendations for that would be highly appreciated.

It's probably been said before, but the Derry of that era should have at least another All Ireland to their name. A super team with a real strong central spine and some classy forwards.

I was at the ' massacre at the Marshes' and the Ulster final drenching. I watched the semi or parts of it in A and E in Newry. I vividly remember mc Gurks point at the end. I
     The final was a strange affair. Derry should really have won by a lot more but the occasion did get to them a little.
       A top team.

Damian has reffed a lot of our games in Tyrone here for Ulster League, a gentleman and a very fair ref. Disgrace what happened, players will always have brawls etc but spectators entering the field is a worrying trend.

Who was the ref SE?

Damien Harkin was the ref.

Referees, by my reckoning, are the most ardent of GAA supporters.  Why else would they put themselves up for public ridicule week in and week out by so-called 'supporters', some of whom can't watch a game without wearing their club blinkers?

Sure, referees make mistakes, they're only human after all. Players make mistakes too, far more often than the referees do, yet when things go wrong it's invariably the referees fault.  Who in their right mind goes out to have a bad game?  Not even a bad game, who in their right mind goes out to make one or two mistakes? 

To treat a fellow Gael, one we rely upon to play our games, like what happened tonight to Damien Harkin, is nothing short of disgusting and scandalous.

I for one stand up and applaud the referees we have.  Sure, they might not get everything right, they see things from different angles than most of us on the other side of the wire, they make the calls on what they see, and they may make mistakes.  But let's not kid ourselves - they are honest mistakes, made by men who make it possible for our games to be played.

To treat anyone to the vitriol spewed towards our referees is an easy way out, when that descends into a physical assault it is SHAMEFUL.

Let's hope the idiot involved tonight can put himself up for the GAA world to judge, like our referees do every week.  Let's hope he doesn't hide behind his club blinkers, or worse his club hide him.  That idiot tonight was an embarrassment to himself, his club, OUR county and the GAA in general.

The shameful thing is, is that it seems to becoming all to prevalent in our football.  One idiot hits a referee, a whole team chastise him for his performance and he's generally out there on his own taking this abuse.  Why would anyone in their right mind do it? 

I said it before and I'll say it again: referees are the most ardent of GAA supporters.  They deserve our respect and thanks for doing the job.

So to Damien Harkin and the rest of the Derry referees, I say thank you for enabling our games to be played.

Great post. Damian loves the GAA. One of best referees out there and goes out each game to do his very best. He is a cousin of mine and shocked to see the video this morning. I referee my myself and often speak to damian for advice and such.

The same man will not let this affect him.

Greenlough Facebook account usually great for match reports and stats, but didnít like that post.
