GAA Discussion / Re: Tom Parsons

Was in gym today in Westpark  Tallaght and Tom Parsons was doing a bit of gym work. Hopefully be back in action next year.

It would be great to see alright but his injury was brutal. Getting back to playing any sort of ball will be incredible. Long road ahead for him.

GAA Discussion / Re: Kildare v Mayo AI Qualifier Round 3
« on: June 27, 2018, 10:31:53 AM »
It was in the year of eighteen, in the lovely month of Jan
The Lily whites were promoted and the excitement it was grand
But seven games on the trot they were f**king traumatic ,
and relegation when it came sure it was automatic

The championship start was not ideal, Kildare fragile you know
And who came out of the draw itself but WTF Carlow
And Horse Lawlor he did get the ball and had loads of time to choose
And once he set his sights on goal sure the Lilies could only lose

And KCR they lost the plot, sure the Carlow boys went mad
While on KFM across the county the mood was very sad
The rasta midgets had had their day, their victory was tremenjus
But the Flourbags had to lick their wounds and start praying the Angelus.
 
This was worse than an embarrassment it was biblical in scope
And on the board Kuwabate and Donnellys had surrendered all their hope
OíNeill was f**king hopeless and his tactics were so poor
What was he doing managing the Lilies, the useless clueless hoor
 
And outsiders they did shake the head and ask all the questions
All that money in Kildare and the team is only messiní
And Newbridge it is still a kip with no corporate suites to offer
And Meath are just as bad and the 2 counties have nothing in the coffer

But life is about soldiering on and the qualifiers offer redemption
Even if the Lilies were only looking at a losing series extension
At least itís not the Leinster championship with the Dubs , that awful load
You can win a few matches with a bit of luck and go further down the road

In Derry the opposition was hard enough to beat
The backs and forwards had to work together in the heat
This was a novelty after all the losing- it was hard to stay on task
But they kept the engine running and thatís all anyone could ever ask.
 
Next up the Larries in their home place- the fans had to shell out
They had beaten Meath you see and were in with a good shout
But the flourbags got the oul mojo going it was a decent oul feeling
An open road and enough horsepower to leave the Larries reeling

So now onto Round 3 and hopefully deeper into July
A draw like Clare at home it would be surely worth a try
A three game winning streak is better than playing cat
And a Saturday evening in the town with pints you could well get used to that

Ah well some of the lads and lassies  had never been arsed watching the Lilies at home before.
It would be the first time Geraldine would have seen the forwards score.
And before they heard the draw, they knew theyíd play the same
So they all agreed that Newbridge was the place to play the game.

But the hoors above in Dublin they had a fella called McGill
And he f**king ordered the Lilies to play in Dublin
The county it was outraged  ONeill would take no crap
And Kildare defied the HQ and all attempts at a bitchslap.

So CP rolled out some big guns and the biggest , Health and Safety
They wanted all the Kildare fans to be drinking in the Big Tree
But Kildare decided otherwise, they had the gander going
And Croke Park ran out of ammunition and the public started groaning

And the Super 8s are the golden goose and the timing is essential
But if Kildare go down the legal route delays will be unmissable
The CLG head are in a bind they donít know what to do
The clock is ticking as we speak this is a huge issue

So Kildare have had a change of fate even if they lose on Sat
Because  the energy unleashed you cannot defend against that
And CLG, the useless hoors, they really need some insight
You cannot force the Lilies into something  that is shite.


So Horse Lawlorís goal was not the end, it was not the end at all
The Kildare lads got time to fight both on and off the ball
They discovered balls they had all over the county of Kildare
And they united around a great oul line- Newbridge or nowhere


Any music to the great lyrics ?

Kildare's call.

The game will go ahead in Croke Park.

You can't be telling the CCCC where you will and won't play the game.
Conleth's park needs millions spent on it. Kildare get get support from the GAA to sort this and move on.

If they get beaten in Croke park at least they can blame someone.

Cavan and Tyrone very silent on the matter.

BBC's record on coverage is at least consistent - they consistently under report on GAA matches and news stories. They tick a few boxes here and there and give disproportionate coverage to other sports.

This money is for Belfast only ?.

I didn't realise either that Belfast has a population of over 600,000 people.

It's great to see Belfast getting this investment and hopefully we'll see the results in a few years time.

I know it's only the league but I didn't see KK winning a league title this year.

Cody is made of stern stuff. Early days and Tipp will come back stronger.

The past few years they've been "softening " us up, preparing us for semi professionalism. The next leader of the GPA will take this a bit further down the road. The amateur days are long gone in most place at this stage. It's only a matter of the patrons getting their heads round it.

6 weeks or more of wading through evidence and legal argument, not to mention months of prepraring for the trial by numerous firms of solicitors and barristers mean that the costs bill is going to be a hefty one. Out of curiosity who is picking up the tab in the event of a win or a loss ?. Just asking.

St Pats Cavan beat Dungannon in Dalton 15 21 to 1 4. Some scoreline.


The ref should be bate for texting in that scoreline. Had the ref no compassion as well as the Cavan team ?.  :)

Really enjoyed the show featuring Lar Corbett last night....quite an intense young man lol

He had great time for Bab.

That time he ran after Tommy round Croke Park was some crack. Some tactics.

Iíve seen the devastation at first hand that child abuse causes. How could a young boy who had been sexually abused for years on a weekly basis from he  was 10  have the emotional capacity to form any opinion to make such a decision. Youíre a twisted man Tony. A very sad, twisted man. If that is what you see as a valid question then there is only one place that your beloved God will have you....biting in hell with the rest of your ilk. You are a child abuse apologist. Simple as that

General discussion / Re: Disgraceful front page in The Irish News
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:12:36 AM »
Irish News does some great work but recently the editorial has become extremely controversial.

Yesterday's headline was totally inappropriate. The editor of the IN needs to take a look at what's going on and stop the sensational headlines and content.

There is almost universal disgust at this headline and quite a few people have decided that no matter about the good sports coverage, enough is enough and they will not be buying the paper. This is something the Sun would publish.
