I was watching the Dublin club championship on TG4 last night . a very attractive looking double header with ballyboden ballymun, st bridgets and kilmacud   all playing and only a handful of people there . much less than a similar attraction in Mayo or most other counties I'd bet
there was a high level of football though the results were uneven and big names on all teams.
surely more could be done to promote this

Dragging Crokes & Boden over to Parnell Park for the game, would have a knock on effect on attendance. As would the games not being knock out anymore.
killmacud  to donnycarney  is is 13,4 K most country clubs would have people travelling further to training . we used to go 20k without the power of Dublin bus as well

Probably 500 sets of traffic lights in that city trip.
It's a short journey in distance but factor in the lights, traffic, reduced speed etc. and it is a long enough spin at any time. Unfortunately no decent venue on the southside bar O'Toole Park so their options are limited.

is that why Dublin refuse to play their home games there out in the sticks. it would suit country clubs like St Vincents though

Roscommon's biggest kip = Ballinlough. Runner up Ballaghaderreen.
give it back so if you've fucked it up. it was fine when it was in mayo.
living in the midlands you spoiled for choice .
edenderry  portarlington clara mountrath mountmellick Rathdowney borrisokane take your choice
and regarding Mayo its not somuch that they are shit holle in the sense of being dangerous more they are losing all the young people and to parapharse , President trump the people that are staying are not always the best people, not Criminals or anything but the ambitious one are gone .
i think  the sad fact is the is not much reason for these towns to exist anymore ,
there are no many towns in northmayo but ballycastle killala bangor have all be come place you would have trouble filling an afternoon in, excpt for hard drinking

In fairness to Joe it is very hard to be consistently original about GAA. Tom humphries was probably the best GAA journalist 20 years ago and even  he gave up after a while.  The plodders like Sean Moran and Breheny rely on statistics but never rise above mediocrity. 

As Eugene McGee told Kimmage in 2015

 "A lot of the matches are shite, but the worst of all is having to write the column in wintertime. I sit down every Saturday night and say, 'What am I going to write here?'. I'm 30 years writing columns now, for God's sake! And some all  of the stuff I write on Monday is pure shite."
just corrected that
they just cant be arsed to look for Real stories that's whay journalist should shut up and journal

Very good performances in his debut season in 2010 v Sligo and Longford. A good game v Tyrone in 13 . Mostly negative contributions for the rest of his time , a tendency to shy away from 50/50 balls , a complete no no for inter county.   it was 2015 v Dubs I seen him with my two fooking eyes yellow out of a 60/40 in his favour when it was melting pot time . His fans never seem to see whats obvious to others.

Unfortunately accurate.
no point in slagging him off at this point.
he did his stint for mayo and should be thanked for it

no Substitutions   after 5 minutes to go , stop games petering out with a whole host of stoppages , this including injuries

the reason most Gaa people don't like Joe brolly is that he is a class one bollix. Always willing to put in his glib one liner looking for a headline  at the expense of anyone or anything . and then come back with a slimy retortor apology  in private  like the Marty apology or  'what are you getting  excited for were only having the Crack'
he came across on the late late show as being desperate for some one to pay attention to him and love him he reminded me  of a young lad who keeps betting picked last for teams even though hes the best player there . people would prefer to lose without him than win with him.
what he does outside football is of no interest to me and could open up 10 homeless shelters and save have of Norn iron by his hard work on transplants while curing cerebral palsy before lunch ,
if you start going down that road and reading details about private live next all their separations divorces, kids communions will be fair game.
if any of the above seems nasty sur were only having a bit of crack

Did he do something on you?

If you actually take him seriously I can understand where you are coming from sometimes as Brolly does often play to the gallery for reaction and can get a bit too personal with some of his criticism. However he can also be very entertaining, is a very clever man and can see through bullshit. Whatever your opinion of him as a GAA pundit, he has done some outstanding work for organ donors and CF. 

I have no intrest in he Charity work or private Life we all do what we can .
its his Say anything for a reaction on the National Broadcaster which has made the sunday game the equivalent of the Daily Mail that I have a problem with . It is now unwatchable .
at least Spillane and O rourke Were important figure winning multiple all Ireland and not just a lucky to be there corner forward whose sole reason for being on telly is to provoke a reaction. my reaction is normally to fast forward or turn off.
its only when he comes on mainstream TV claiming sainthood and hoping to be 'Forced' in to running for the ARAS he need to be called  out for the  sycophant that he is

You just need to take him far less seriously. There is a mute button on the tv and it might be recommended. He can be a divisive character but never boring and I'm glad he is on the media because he does more than most to hold authorities to account. If something has to be said he will say it and I'd rather a pundit with an opinion than some of the dull bland analysts.

As for the assertion that his opinion has no value because he only won one AI that is simply nonsense argument. The number of AI titles he won has no impact on his ability to perform a role as a TV pundit.

are you joe brolly ? because that exactly the kind of mealy mouthed reply id expect from him,
surely the whole point of a Gaa discussion board is where people take all matters GAA far too seriously
as for the number of all-Irelands  when  you have 8 all-ireland's and none all stars and several player of the year trophies your entitled to a fools pardon  , Brolly is owed no such Privileges .

Cant fathom ground capacity stuff at all, stand is 10k,so thats saying its only what 6k in other three ends , lets guess 7k in albany and bacon factory end with 5k on the other side . Wtf like how do health and safety come to these figures is it based on all patrons been 30stone , 8ft tall and 4ft wide.

Because the place is a hovel. Those low concrete slabs for sitting shouldve been levelled years ago, they're a serious safety hazard. I'll forever remember someone claiming it was an all seater stadium a few years back because he wanted Castlebar included in Irelands RWC bid. We won't delve into the brand new stand with concrete bars blocking everyone's line of vision as it's the only functioning part of the ground.
apparently thise bars save 1 million or more when they were put in
