I'm no fan of Spillane's but the idea that this was some sort of Kerry (or Meath) hatchet job is laughable.
He pushed an official, he got suspended.
Move on ffs.

Dublin are fairly good, lads.

Noticed that Burren won the U14 All-Ireland Premier competition in Sligo.  Is this some sorta separate competition to the Feile currently being held in Monaghan, Cavan, and Fermanagh?  I thought this was the competition which included all the various county champions as well the hosts.  Apologies, didn't see a thread anywhere else.
There are also regional Feile competitions taking place. Not sure how Burren ended up in Sligo.
Our boys were beaten today in the quarter final in Monaghan.
Some good teams on show. In particular, Naomh Colmcille from Meath. Great team. One thing though, they appeared to be Dubs.

Lost by a point to Portlaoise in the semi-final.
A lot of Dubs moved to the Meath Riviera in recent years for a taste of the good life.
Unfortunately, they brought their accents with them.

So this was their 'day' was it?
I suppose you'll hammer them in the final, yeah?
Sickening arrogance as usual.

Really disappointed with Jack McCarron today. He was brilliant against us in clones when he got a lot of space but he didn't want to know tonight. Never got into and couldn't handle the physical stuff and really poor free at the end

He had a great league but has totally lost form in the championship.

I think league football & heavier pitches suit him.
Hasn't the burst of speed or agility to make space for himself in summer football.

Congratulations Down.
Always happy to see our fellow aristocrats (up North) doing well.

He got a kick in the puss for his troubles.

That Johnston lad for Down reminds me of Tiernan McCann.
Similar style.
And hair.

Wylie had hold of his leg and did a judo throw ffs.

Will be watching our FB & HF lines with interest to see if we've learned anything from the Kildare game.
Keoghan can't be everywhere.
He's needed at centre-back, but we need someone else to drop back to cover the FB line as he is one of the few players we have that can get us up the field from a defensive position.
Mickey Burke did well enough on Kelly the last day but he hasn't enough football for centre back.
Reilly, O'Sullivan & O'Coileain should be the starting HF line.
Move Wallace into the FF line with McMahon & Lenihan to see if he can contribute there.
I'd imagine at a minimum Andy will expect everyone to work like dogs.
If that happens, we should come out on top by 5/6 points.

Haven't seen too much of Sligo recently to be honest.
We'll need to put our best man-marker on Dessie Sloyan.

We had more possession than them though.
So... there's that.

Was thinking RTE just got that the wrong way round? Sky had it 60-40 in Kildare's favour.

So... there's not even that.

GAA Discussion / Re: Croke Park - Bags and Shít
« on: June 20, 2017, 11:26:23 PM »
Could the stupid f**kers not just check bags. Sure how can you bring kids to a game without a bag? Why only Croke park?

Checking 83,000 people isn't easy.

83000 people won't all have backpacks, I'd say maybe 5% would at a guess although Armagh people would probably have more to carry in their buckfast.

The poor stewards would have their work cut out if Cavan ever got to Croker, with Cavan families bringing in as much cheap food and drink to avoid the extortionate prices inside the ground. The place would be full of rucksacks.

Many's the child from Cavan that was brought into Croke Park in a rucksack.

Roscommon won't fear Galway.
