There is s great blend of hurlers and while Joe may take the limelight every so often there are just as many good hurlers on that team who have been placed in their best position for the county... was shocked at how steady they were against Waterford, they didn't once panic took their points and built momentum which Waterford couldn't claw back... before Galway would have wilted and took the wrong options, went for goals instead of tagging on points...

the spread of scores is positive also, decent mix and the win surprised me on Sunday

Signed up for Dublin this year after swearing blind after Amsterdam 2015 (my one and only) that I'd never do another!! No idea what time to target yet, plenty of time till the training starts though.

Small matter of a sprint triathlon at the end of June to get out of the way first and considering I can barely swim 50m in a pool I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew!!  :o

How was Amsterdam ? Doing it this year so any tips other than don't will be welcomed!

As for your swim you'll be grand, just get in the pool and do a length at a time for your training 30 lengths for the sprint so build your training to work on ten lengths break for a minute then another ten break for two and finish off! You'll love the craic of the tris

Maybe somewhere like West Clare then? Around Lahinch or Kilkee? At least in those spots if the weather is bad, you can occupy the kids with some activities. South Kerry is my favourite part of the country, but if you get bad weather, you have to go 40 miles before you can go anywhere. At least out in Clare, you'd have the Aillwee Caves, Cliffs of Moher and you wouldn't be miles from Ennis or Limerick/Galway for emergency activities. Waterford up to west Clare is probably 2.5/3 hours? I did Clonmel to Newport last Sunday in an hour and 15.
Have been in Clare plenty of times...Herself is from there!
Only thinking Sligo as really it's a county I know little about and have never been really.

Stayed in Galway (Salthill) apartment two bedroom was 260 for two nights over Easter! Apartment was in great nick and views right over the bay were stunning

seems strange on two fronts, until we get the full story (and not from a brother of a guy who may or may not be on the squad) I wouldnt pass judgement on it.... If the player did something and was caught then deal with it, if its no conclusive and it could be a number of players due to poor image then Croke park needs to be definitive on the rules for this also...

but no lets get the media on it and make Antrim a news story for all the wrong reasons

You doubting me Dazza?

Agree,  yet again Antrim make the headlines for the wrong reasons..

Well with the amount of crap pj/cb you say it's hard to judge

Frustrating to see us back in the news for the wrong reasons. :(

Self inflicted as usual

Yeah the lad in question should have had some representation from our County at his hearing.  Not sure what the rest of the letter is about.

It's a bit of a sticky one for Antrim CB when Croke Park no doubt were putting them under pressure for a name to be seen to be coming down hard on what must have been an off the ball incident reading between the lines and trying to keep the player in question available for the championship. Not giving any name due to lack of "total certainty" will only wash for so long.
If there was genuine doubt as to the person in the photo it doesn't say much for the lad who probably knew it was him and was content to keep his gub shut and let this shit get to the letter writing stage.

Irrespective it was bad manners that the Antrim Croke Park delegate or someone in the county executive wasn't there to represent the lad in question.
Think concern expressed as to how the original judgement was overturned on an appeal which the CB could or would not  take part and then was revisited a few weeks later with the original decision imposed.

I'm sure if they use the same logic that turned over the first appeal then it would surely turn over the other appeal?

Looking a week in the sun in July. We just want a decent hotel and a quiet place to dander about at night and grab a bite to eat. Any hotel or location recommendations. Im just back from Vegas so we are only looking to spend 1500 between us.

Benidorm


Crazy looking back over the holidays that people can afford nowadays considering the austerity going on.... my parents could only afford Tramore and Galway the odd year or Ballycastle!! How many holidays are paid with your current accounts? I'd say most are on a credit card with high interest rates from the get go !

Is that it??  Youngsters don't know they're born these days!!
Been about a while AQMP........but cannot recall a player receiving sentence, dubios or otherwise and winnin an appeal on such......then recalled a few weeks later and initial sanction imposed again.....but possibly in "your day" this was commion place :D

What are you saying here? It's ok to let players off the hook, I'm not talking about Antrim player here, just in general?

a dude with a dick is on the front of Time magazine championed as woman of the year...where is the biological science, reasoning and fact there?
the responsibility of proof is on the side that says he is a woman..
2-5 year old children who think they are boys or girls are being held up as trophy kids
male athletes are competing in female MMA and beating the shit out of women
male powerlifters are competing in female competition and breaking records
where's the science? wheres the biology?

you still believe its the same as the talking burning bush?

jeeze that didnt hurt!!

While we much prefer the ref to deal with this there and then, this sort of stuff has been going on for a while now, and i'd say if Croke Park issue a request on naming a player in an image then that would need to be given? no?

Antrim has never been great at this stuff, unlike Armagh and Tyrone in turning over these sort of decisions, why the county is being blamed on giving up this lad for something he did/didnt depending on what it was (I take it the lad in question carried out an off the ball red card offence?) is silly, if shoe on the other foot and Micheal Murphy was getting a ban we'd be all for it and saying how well the Donegal county board has dealt with that ;)

Back to page 918 and read the bottom few posts. Things have taken a turn for the worst.



Still as clear as mud!
Seems our senior football team is very concerned at their perception of the complete failure of our County executive to act in a supportive role for one of their number.
They have forwarded a letter to that body outlining such concerns
Document signed bu all the panelists and has been circulated to clubs.
Again Only in Antrim :'(

Well if there is a letter out there and everyone knows why be cloak and dagger about it? so first off, what did the player do and when did it happen and why?
Can see at least four signatures placed by Milltown Blues on the document......ask them or indeeed ur club sec.. :)

You're still not making any sense lad

Line of duty maintaining  the high standards of the first 3 series , brilliant show

But who da hell has killed the girls? or anyone for that matter??? is a cracking show

the lawyer has had two brilliant lines (put downs) calling Dunbar Pasley and your man Ironside

I'm late to it and don't know who's been killed and by whom, but its gripping in fairness will all the skullduggery and backhandedness, you don't know who's covering for who all the time.

You're ok Johnney, know one knows
