Courtois should be MOTM.

It should be noted that today’s parade celebrating partition was organised by a 32 county organisation.

Like Gaaboard, the OO has more from some counties than others (not the same counties).

If it had been in St Petersburg then it would have been on time

It seems that Leitrim might be interested in the Tailteann cup while Antrim are not.
In the old qualifiers Leitrim did not seem interested, for instance when Armagh beat them by 27 points.

True, great job Helen McEntee. Reform in indeed.

This type of thing isn't so unusual, youths fighting in parks is something in every town. The airport thing was well out of order.
What an amazingly odd take on these incidents.

People from a community well known for fighting each other engage in such. In an airport though, well out of order.
People from the same community randomly attack people just dandering by. Close to a park, just standard stuff in parks.

It is not an odd take. In the airport there should have been a police response, there cannot be police everywhere.

28,000 at the Ulster Final this weekend.  This Armagh Tyrone game could surely sell more than 20k tickets.  Totally understand armagh want to retain home advantage but costing the GAA a hell of alot of money

Except tickets have been on sale to the public for days now and show no sign of selling out.

This one won't even be full.

I don't think you could double the attendance, but there is still 10 days of ticket sales, some people will buy one closer to the date, perhaps after seeing the weather forecast.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

What's that about in this context?

I'm no economist but if the Govt are pumping £30bn into the economy how exactly does that stave off inflation will that not make it worse?

Of course it makes it worse. But people need to be able to pay their bills and if they do not get some loot off the government then they will be looking for pay increases.

For anyone with Season Tickets, you can book online now for next week's games.

Keeps telling me there are no available events

Select redeem tickets and choose All Ireland Championship option, should be under there.

It is indeed. However, for an organisation that makes its business selling tickets the Ticketmaster site is suprisingly shЇte and hard to navigate.

genuinely dont see a full house.
its live on tv and after the depressing exit from the championship by armagh a  fair few will stay at home
fancy 9/10k at it

 

You have a point about the dismal performance in Ballybofey, but the problem with us Armagh people is that we always have hope.


its the hope that kills you!!!!!

Supporting Armagh is like sky diving, the fall gives you a buzz but the sudden stop at the end is the problem.

If the league game was full (and it was streamed live) then there must be chance of a crowd for the championship.

Odds on the four matches

Armagh 7/4 Tyrone 4/7
Clare 11/8 Meath 8/11
Cork 2/5 Louth 5/2
Mayo 4/11 Monaghan 11/4

A Louth and Monaghan double would pay out nicely there.

Ticket arrangements - surely a sell out predicted here, tickets via clubs only or expect online availability?

The league game was a full house, this one will be too. Glad that I got a season ticket!

It's probably the game both counties needed. Another run through the qualifiers beating weaker sides only to stumble at the first decent opposition would have proved nothing for Armagh. Tyrone meanwhile looked to have clocked out this season between indiscipline, players walking out and others just lacking in motivation for various reasons. This game should awaken them for their slumber. For the losers it could be a long winter but for the winners it could kickstart their season. Should be some atmosphere in Armagh for this match.   

Exactly, whoever wins this can probably expect to get through a couple more rounds. For the loser played 2 lost 2 is not very impressive.
