And if Heaney had blasted a fourth goal instead of a point we probably wouldn't have managed it.
Entertaining meaningless game but sure twas nice to win it.
Always good to bate your bigger neighbours and hopefully we do likewise in June whichever if them well be playing.
Wonder how many of today's 40 or so players will send Summer action?

4th* Final in a row between Connacht's big 2.
Can we stop Galway doing the 3 in a row?

*7th if you include the July finals.

Wasn't there an entire family blown to pieces in Dublin 1974 by MI5/6/ Jackal?
You left out Bloody Sunday in Derry Avondhu.

Indeed its all Croke Parks fault while the poor dekegates to Conventions and Congresses arent allowed vot at all!!!
Ah sure nothing like a good rant!!
I wonder how Paddy O'Rourke's and other teams will "knock Kerry Mayo or Dublin out"  in whatever competition Give and go is proposing? If there are only 3 top teams miles ahead of the rest then they'll dominate anyway.
Does he or she seriously expect Meath or the equivalent to win the AI if you reduce the number of Co games and have more club games?
Does he propose having more club competitions?

Lar the Tommy Murphy was a TOURNAMENT for teams from lower League divisions who had already been knocked out of Provincial and All Ireland Championships.
That 1984 thingy was  TOURNAMENT too.

Esmarelda the CPA asked last year's Congress to hold off the so called Super 8 so they obviously were in existence before the decision was made.
One only County Championship in Roscommon would fail small thinly populated clubs like St Ronans.
That's why we have 3 different graded Championships like most Counties  ( Cork's and Kerry have more I believe).

We'll all be rooned says Seafóid before the plan is out.
A first step would be to move Dáil,  Government, Top Civil Service, President etc to a new Capital in or around Athlone.
A new 10% Corporate tax rate for designated underdeveloped areas.

I said keep the Provincials by the way.
Same logic as doesn't have St Ronans in the same Championship as St Brigids in Roscommon  and similar in 31 other Counties.
By the way who did the GAA head bucks consult before putting the Super 8 before Congress?
Both player bodies were opposed.

Can you imagine the laughter if someone put a motion to the Roscommon County Convention to
1 Abolish the Junior and Intermediate grades and have one County Championship.
2 Start up Regional Championships with 5, 6, 7 and 10 teams where the winners of each would go straight to Qtr Finals.

Logic says 3 All Ireland Championships ( keep Provincials as stand alones with all grades entering like in Kerry) with promotion and relegation.
Have a League of some sort as a pre season competition.
Designate certain weekends of the 27 between 1st weekend April to 1st weekend in October as club only (say 11) and others as County only (11) with the other (5) flexible.
All All Ireland Finals same weekend U17, U20,  Senior, Inter, Junior.

To those who say players from weak Counties are opposed -when did players ever get to say or decide what type or format of competitions?
Even the GPA despite becoming insiders had their proposals barred from even getting to Congress 2 years ago.
