From July 2023

QuoteFollowing Sky Sports' departure, BBC Northern Ireland got rights last year to broadcast the All-Ireland semi-finals and finals in hurling and football, as well as the Ulster football championship.

The games have also been available on the iPlayer. But part of that arrangement included coverage across the network of one of the finals, opening up the games to the 27 million households in Britain that have televisions.

However, Sunday's All-Ireland hurling final between Limerick and Kilkenny will only be shown on BBC Northern Ireland. The GAA said last year that BBC would alternate coverage of the finals on the network over the five years of the current arrangement.

That's means the football final will not be live on BBC in Britain this weekend?
Not sure how anyway can dislike Fields of Athenry especially Paddy Reillys version.

MacGyver should   get a mention too.

Quantum Leap as well

Quantum Leap more 90's?

1989 to 1993. Speaking of which does Ziggy post on here anymore?

Questioning what is real anymore. Would make more sense for Hulk Hogan to run for president than Trump getting voted in for a 2nd time.

Kerry did,  2016 All Ireland semi final it took two added time points for Dublin to prevail, was one score between the two in the 2015 final and took a replay to win the 2019 final.   
Not the first time age is a issue  for America president. Ronald Reagan was always good for adding a bit of humor to that debate.

This date 19 years ago. Sean Boylan took charge of his last game as Meath senior football team manager after 23 years in charge. Meath lost out to Cavan in an All Ireland qualifier at Clones on the 17th July 2005. 4 All Ireland's, 8 Provincials and 3 NFL titles won in his time.

Another onlyfans model stunt?
Season ticket holders guaranteed All-Ireland final tickets. Thewobbler left that out of his easiest way list,  How many season ticket holders did Galway and Armagh have this year?

Latest possible blow for Kerry from the Irish Examiner

AFL outfit Geelong believe they are in the box seat to sign rising Kerry starlet Cillian Burke.
Efforts are underway at Board executive level in the Kingdom to convince the Milltown-Castlemaine youngster to stay put following an excellent debut season with Jack O'Connor's senior squad.
However, people close to the situation fear it is an uphill battle and that the powerful young attacker is set to give the AFL professional path a go.
"There is nothing signed," a source close the situation stated.
The indication from Jack O'Connor that his management team intends to remain in charge for 2025 may be a help in convincing the young forward to stay put.
Burke isn't the only possible departure from Kerry's stock of nascent talent. At least two Aussie Rules clubs have been looking at Kerins O'Rahilly's youngster Tomas Kennedy, and Dr Crokes' Charlie Keating, both of whom were part of Tomás Ó Sé's Kerry Under 20 side that were beaten in the All-Ireland final.
Kennedy is a big, rangy midfielder or wing forward with serious aerial potential, while Keating has already been drafted into the senior set-up with Kerry after an impressive campaign from wing back with the Under 20's – his athleticism and serious pace a feature.
Losing Burke to Australia would be a significant blow, though, to O'Connor's Kerry. He produced a stellar cameo in the quarter-final against Derry and again was one of the big performers as the Kingdom wilted down the stretch in Saturday's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Armagh.

Quote from: galwayman on July 16, 2024, 08:23:19 AMFor us - McGrath and McHugh are nailed on. For the rest - the final will dictate a lot.
For Armagh Turbitt looks to have one in the bag already also. He should get one even if were to have a poor final he's been exceptional
Paul Conroy would be another nailed on player for Galway, at 35 he's having his best year in the Galway jersey 2-13 scored from midfield only Shane Walsh and Rob Finnerty has scored more
