Quote from: marty34 on February 20, 2024, 08:11:56 PMSouthern by-pass for Enniskillen given the green light by O'Dowd.  A good news day all-round today.

This should help the town centre in Enniskillen plus benefit the link up to Sligo.

All roads, if you pardon the pun, points to an All-Ireland agenda. Logistically getting ready for it.

Good to see.

I'd imagine Unionists  lately  feel like they are  being cast adrift from their mothership,  and slowly being  absorbed by osmosis into a United Ireland .

Albeit a mothership who has  screwed them over time and time again . Although , they'll still  be blindly loyal to a  land who  is clearly trying to get  rid of them.

Time for  the DUP to talk about  the bridge to Scotland again

Heard an interview with the deputy leader of the TUV on GMU this morning. He was easier in the ear than Jim but spent his time bemoaning the neglect by GB.

Quote from: marty34 on February 20, 2024, 05:56:13 PMWee Jeff seriously annoyed that this is happening. He's luke warm that it's happening, obviously can't refuse it but it's through gritted teeth.

I see some farmer on that A5 road annoyed that he's losing land. He was probably one of the lads who was holding it up. Sew it into him as some many unecessary deaths on that road recently because of these reviews etc.

For unionists, it must be this on one day and on the same day, the Brits looking for the wee 6 to raise more money.

Yip he is Hamilton Hassard part of the Alternative A5 Alliance who have been against the upgrade from the word go.

That a**hole shouldn't be given one second of airtime. Countless young lives wasted cos a bigoted tr**p like him doesn't want to see a road connecting Derry n Dublin. Going on about high quality agricultural land. It's not County Meath you headbanger!

I didn't see him, but I did see an interview with another Protestant farmer who could lose up to 50 acres(!). He was all for it and quite emotional as he knew someone killed on the road. "No blade of grass is worth more than someone's life"
Should the GAA not be scaling back the plans to develop a new stadium within the budget and saying they will have it completed 2029.

A good surface and a couple of tin shed for stands and tear up any mention of UEFA standards.

Quote from: sam03/05 on February 17, 2024, 04:28:26 PMMinor semi finals today - mad how long those lads had to wait to play those games. Cookstown seem to be on the rise a bit, they were beat in grade 1 u16 final earlier this year, they were in the grade 2 minor final last year, now grade 1 final, all their teams seem to be playing in grade 1. Donaghmore though should be the best team in the county at that age group.
They have 3 teams entered at u14.

Quote from: Eire90 on February 15, 2024, 07:57:16 PMWhat sort of squads  will be in that cup is it just the same format as the senior championship could they have change the format to make a different

Lack of County and u20 players will make it different.

Quote from: bannside on February 12, 2024, 06:50:56 PMTyrone schools football at an all time high. Must be serious work going on in clubs, then schools pick up the mantle in year 8.

Holy Trinity & St Joseph's Donaghmore both stepping up in recent years too...

Only show in town amongst the bushes...fair play.
The Dean managed a Markey cup last year and were competing in grade 1 on down the years reaching the Dalton (?) final.
Holy Cross Strabane also reached a Markey cup final this year.
St Ciarans Ballygawley seems to have slipped off the radar.

Quote from: Tyrone11234 on February 07, 2024, 01:02:25 PMAny rumoured fixture release dates?

Not be anytime soon I'm fairly sure it was April last year

Reserve leagues and Jim Devlin will be well underway at that stage so it would need to be earlier.

Quote from: ClubScene13 on January 31, 2024, 08:31:16 PMStrange one regarding reserves if the plan is to play them off weekly starting 10th March

Will the Ulster leagues be finished up by then or do many clubs enter them now?

I see the 2023 Minor semi-finals have now been scheduled for 17th February. That should see the final played a week before the 2024 season throws in.

Quote from: Rossfan on January 30, 2024, 01:39:37 PMYou score a goal now = kick put from opposition 20m.
Score a goal if that was passed = throw in 50m nearer the scoring teams goal! Punishment for scoring a goal!

How about anyone on a yellow or who got a black in normal time can't play in the extra time?

Are you looking to add in stupid rules ?

I thought I read somewhere that there was a push to ensure reds picked up in normal time would carry through to extra time, no more "it's a new game so reds are cancelled but yellows and blacks carry through"

So Israeli allegations of involvement by 10-12 UNRWA operators out of 30,000 (a list previously provided to and cleared by Israel) is sufficient smoke to cut out aid.

However genocidal statements and attendance at Settler conferences by Government Ministers is not sufficient indication of Israeli direction of travel.

Quote from: shawshank on January 29, 2024, 09:49:21 AMSomebody tell Leo this isn't rugby. Hope Leo isn't a ref. How anyone could justify that as red is beyond me, outside of having done something in the pushing shoving afterwards.

Where did I say it was rugby? I said the red was harsh and the tackle was careless but the Ref makes the call in real time and if you are clumsy you run a risk.

Quote from: LeoMc on January 29, 2024, 08:28:23 AMThe red card was harsh but Kilpatrick gave the red a decision to make
No square ball.

We often hear this trotted out.
A tug on the jersey gives the ref a decision to make.
The wrong decision would be to issue a red card. Just as it is here.
IMO, The tackle was careless, he made contact with the players head, albeit with his chest, and there didn't appear to be any attempt to play the ball. In real time that give the Ref a decision to make.

In rugby it would not even be in doubt as there is an onus on the tackler that is not in our game.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on January 28, 2024, 11:55:58 PMIt's difficult to tell, player never would have got the ball In The first place if he didn't come across the square then out he didn't receive it on the square.
There is no prohibition on being in the square, only on receiving the ball in the square if certain conditions are met.
