All Kilkenny clubs have been asked to observe a minute's silence before their next game to commemorate the retirement of Brian Gavin.

Now, now, PE. Can't recall Tipp doing likewise when John Denton called it quits.

Bit surprised Stoke not (apparently) offering the job on a short-term contract to Steptoe & Son. Worth nearly anything for them to stay in the Premier league and the two speak English (O'Neill does anyway).

The way MVG is playing, Taylor could very well go out with the win.

Anyone think the boards are chewing up really badly? It was noticeable enough in the first match but it's shocking in this one with more sets. Could potentially play a part in a long final.

Looked fairly pock-marked on the treble-19s alright, but it was/shudda been a new board after the first semi'.

Man City might be heading into a Fergie decade. That will hurt down the Stretford End.

Citi are heading into an era where arab owners with simply bottomless wealth can buy clubs like Citi and PSG and manipulate fair-play rules to buy whoever they want and pay whatever wages are required to get them to come to the club. The  Qataris tried to buy United from the Glazers before buying PSG and personally I am glad it didnít happen.  As bad as the Glazers are viewed, at least the money buying players is coming from the clubís legitimate revenue streams and not from oil wealth off the back of human rights abuses in the Gulf.

Surely only a matter of time before middle east money makes the Glazers an offer they won't refuse.

I agree that this thread should stay open because it is educational. There are also a few questions to which there is no straight answer. Discussing these openly here might actually help someone.

Iím no counsellor, but if Hawe had spoken to someone openly about his issues, then five lives could have been saved. Isnít that the important lesson here?

Not so sure. He did consult his GP and had counselling earlier in his life. Not an expert by any means, but sometimes these issues are very, very hard to resolve.

Great talent. Swatted Killererin aside in the 2003 county final in Pearse stadium. A shame he was too young for the 98-01 era; instead he had to play with some very moderate Galway teams unworthy of his ability.

Lots of new players training with Galway currently especially as the Corofin players will likely be missing for most it not all the league and there are a number of senior players who will also miss the league as they are recovering from injuries.

Called up are Sean Andy O'Ceallaigh (Leitir Mor), Peter Cooke (Moycullen), Sean Kelly (Moycullen), Ronan Boland (Michael Breathnach), Cein D'Arcy (Caherlistrane), John Maher (Salthil), Eoin Finnerty (Mountbellew-Moylough), Rob Finnerty (Salthill), Dessie Conneely (Moycullen), Ciaran Duggan (Annaghdown), Frankie Burke (Annaghdown), Evan Wynne (Salthill).

Called up from the past two minor teams are Sean Mulkerrin (Oileain Arann) and Evan Murphy (Salthill).

Back after missing 2017 due to injury are Patrick Sweeney (Killanin) and Adrian Varley (Cortoon Shamrocks).

Cillian McDaid (Monivea Abbey) has joined Carlton in the AFL.

Ye hoors have plenty of young forwards, any chance ye'd give back Larry jnr?

Ya, take him away. He's not great anyway I'm afraid.

Wouldn't write him off just yet as you can see the talent that is there but he definitely gave a few displays last year that would worry you a bit. From what I remember he had an absolute nightmare against Kerry in the U-21 semi final. He must have left about 2-3 behind him. I guess you could say at least he was getting into good positions to score. Worse maybe was then being taken off at half-time in the final against Dublin where he was just anonymous. Still I'm loathe to criticise a young lad too much who was just out of minor last year.

True, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

Defeat in the Commons for May over Brexit bill. Some Tory's (sensibly) rebelled. Further obstruction and confusion to the situation.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/dec/06/the-guardian-view-on-the-brexit-crisis-time-to-stop-the-fanatics

Since Monday, however, it has become much clearer that the UK governmentís failures and incompetence on Brexit go wider and deeper. Ph
ilip Hammond confirmed on Wednesday what this column had reported, that the cabinet has never at any time had a specific discussion about the kind of Brexit that it is aiming for. As Sir Keir Starmer said in a Guardian article, membership of the single market, the customs union and a role for the European court of justice were simply swept off the table as options by Theresa Mayís grossly irresponsible diktat of October 2016.


it's not a failure if you don't want to do it. The UK Government do not want Brexit and are trying to achieve as little Brexit as possible. The only shocking failure is the media and opposition reporting on this as a failure.

Trying, failing, to make sense of this.....

Might yet be all for naught if stage II talks fail and the UK go 'hard', or if Tories shaft May and elect Boris/alternative hardline Brexiteer as leader, or if UK changes mind altogether re: Brexit.

Utterly paradoxical that the best chance pro-Brexit DUP had of maintaining the status quo was to Remain.

Hurling Discussion / Re: County Senior Hurling Championship Updates

Yeah nothing wrong with spreading round the titles, how would they fair against the Dublin champions?

Cuala aren't reigning AI champions for nothing and will take some stopping.

Puts a bit of perspective on Slaughtneils game against them last year. Slaughtneil will give Na Piarsaigh their fill of it in February although Na Piarsaigh also being recent previous winners will be hotly tipped.

Is big John Lee playing for Liam Mellows?
One of the many fine hurlers who for whatever reason didn't get going at intercounty level.

Didnít see his name in the report, I was actually looking out for it. The best hurling match I ever witnessed was the Fitzgibbon semi in 2010 between NUIG and LIT. Lee was outstanding at centre back for NUIG. They won by 1 point after extra time. Maybe he felt working as a doctor wasnít compatible with playing intercounty.

Lee did his cruciate at the start of the year and missed pretty much all of the campaign I believe. Don't know if he will be available in the new year; Mellows will have their work cut out anyway against a formidable Cuala outfit.
Lee is a trained doctor and currently doing locum experience as a GP. Was a good prospect, particularly at underage, but ultimately couldn't really commit fully due to his studies.
