Strong rumour Spurs are watching Tierney closely.Hate to see him leave,but if he has to he couldn't be going to a better club,and should command a fee in excess of £10m
Robertson went to Liverpool fro 10 million and wouldn't lace teirneys boots
he is a 20 million player

While Universal Credit bites the most vulnerable, bedroom tax is unmitigated, third sector workers are laid off and £30m of in-year cuts are being implemented by the Health Trusts, the Assembly runs up £300,000 for broadcasting nothing and spends £200,000 providing subsidised food to well paid MLAs and their staff and former MLAs continue to be paid £55K pa for the last 7 months until C Ruane SF resigns as Jim Allister TUV exposes the continued payments. Danny Kennedy UUP resigned his assistant Speaker post when he lost his seat in June taking no additional payments and A Attwood SDLP pays his MLA salary back each month.  C Ruane claims to have given her payments from the public purse away instead of returning them but did she provide her usual payment to SF to stay within the average industrial wage? She did nothing legally wrong. 

See how it was reported by BBC on The View:

Disgraceful. She should hang her head in shame. One point re: Kennedy, though. He was a minister for years on a very high salary, and then was on a very high salary as assistant speaker, YET he signed on for unemployment benefit when he lost his seat. Did he not have any savings from his 80k a year salary for being a minster for years or his 55k salary as assistant speaker? He has some cheek pleading poverty after his earnings from Stormont
He is entitled to sign on, far from me to defend him  but he has paid his taxes and national insurance,
Ruane well that’s another story.

General discussion / Re: Catalan Independence Movement

The Catalan leadership are backing off from a U.D.I.   now that their bluff has been called. The big financial groups want stability and are pulling out. Hundreds of thousands of Catalan have gone on the street demanding to stay with Spain. The Pro independence crowd will be happy with that as they now have an excuse to pull back and let the chip on their shoulder get bigger. Similar to the six counties which had the lowest level of military activity during the War of Independence and allowed the south to bear the brunt of the Black and Tans. Then spent the next 50 years whinging

Have no issue with Jamie heading off , fair play to him, for myself I would encourage everyone to travel and see the world. I can see no reason why he should stay it’s not as if gaa is giving him a living.
The reality and indeed I see it in my own kids is that they see beyond Ireland and Gaelic football is no longer the be all of life.
Indeed was chatting to a young county player from another county who wants to travel and in his words he is being made to feel as if he is letting everyone down. He feels terrible about it. That’s not fair on young guys.
So hopefully Jamie enjoys Australia and the rest.

As for cross hopefully they fall back in the pack , I am encouraged by the Work so many clubs in Armagh are doing, clann eireann, maghery  who both won minors at different levels etc so we just need more to continue their great work st ground level.

Was it not Shane O'Neills and Carrickcruppen?

Yes. My mistake. Over a security related issue?

when I was a kid Cruppen were the only senior team in the area, indeed 5 championship finals in a row 77-82
corrinshego set up by Gerry Oreilly and a few( he had been a full back on the cruppen team
poynpass then were set up( the Canavans who played with the county were from poyntspass

Shane O Neills were around in the 60s then were set up again in the 80s with regard to a fall out etc
geraldines were set up as cruppen were not allowed to put a second team in the league, it was blocked by cross ( who funnily enough have a second team now that St Johns who were set up in cross in the 80s disbanded)  It fell away when cruppen began struggling for numbers

all the clubs save for the pass are doing ok at senior,
its underage which will eventually catch up with them

GAA Discussion / Re: Mullaghbrack GFC Versus The GAA.

Last time I looked at the GAA Official Guide it said that when a club folds any of its assets  become property of the county board. Which makes sense since you can't really just let large sums of money (or property) disappear into someone's pocket after so much community effort was made raising the funds and building the facilities. In this case the Armagh GAA board could take ownership of the ground, but if the ladies club is still getting use of it then the LGFA's Armagh county board might want to help them take it over for a small nominal fee.

In an ideal world the LGFA and Camogie Association would be part of the GAA, but in the meantime this strikes me as a solvable problem if all parties would get around a table and sort it out.
All gaa land is held  by trustees under a deed of trust
There should be 5 trustees( including one from county board and one from provincial council)
The deed of trust sets out clearly the rules for holding the land and in the standard gaa rules there is a section which deals with the assets of a. Luv when it is wound up.
Putting it simply the assets are owned by the GAA.

Winners are out 4 days later too.

Another example of how much the county team rule the roost, and clubs are an afterthought.
Tbf there was a bereavement so good to see some spirit of community between the county boards, to get the game played.

lets cut to the chase
we are 4 windows in and have spent 4million on the centre halfs
the zonal defence was awful on Saturday with Ben Mees being allowed space to run and attack the ball
everyone can see this and its happening every single week

No red
Ball was there to be won
If a centre half going for it instead of a keeper then it was a yellow card
Changed the game
Although Henderson for Liverpool is really a poor player and the less said about the defence the better

I can see why Armagh fans would like him but I thought he was a 2nd grade thug on the field. Armagh had some great players like McDonnell and mcconville. Mckeever wasnt one of them.
No need to be rancorous if you don't like him that's all well and good he didn't get paid for it but he represented Armagh every year for 14 years with pride
Sometimes in an amateur sport there really isn't any glory only guys like you who will undermine
Am 50 years of age and have watched great players in down ( linden , James etc) in Tyrone ( Peter,o Neill) Derry ( gilligan , tohill)
He was a good servant for Armagh no need to  be depreciating

Glad he played for us.
He served the orchard well and personally always felt he would give his all for Armagh.
I wish him well.

Tbf I get what Mc geeney is saying, some of the players are totally committed at the moment ( Morgan is an example) some are half bought in and some are playing with commitment.
 I think he is getting at the fact that the elite teams have total buy in at all levels .
Armagh are not elite but during the noughties when they were there was total buy in, until we get that again a quarter final is the best we can hope for.
I see nothing malicious in his comments.

Well done Tyrone
Extremely impressive and well worth the win, their speed on the counter attack was impressive
I have numerous issues with the ref today but reality istyrone were far better than us.
I wish you  all the best .
