GAA Discussion / Re: The inspiring story of Jamie Wall
« Last post by slippery dodger on Today at 03:38:09 AM »
A truly inspiring piece by Vincent Hogan on Jamie Wall and his achievements with Mary I and how he adapted his role within our game. The podcast is also well worth a listen to.

GAA Discussion / Re: Gambling in the GAA - the ethical aspect
« Last post by stephenite on Today at 03:28:11 AM »
If you're a county player or have played county football or hurling you can pretty much get away with anything.

McCarron
Alan Smith
Davy Glennon
Darren Gleeson
Mark Hehir



If it was an ordinary Joe Soap, he'd have been locked up. What is interesting there is that it's pretty much confirmed Hehir only got the job because he was a GAA footballer and we have people arguing that these lads aren't being looked after well enough!
Disgraceful post.

There have been a few disgraceful posts from this lad, but this is not one of them. Perfectly accurate and appropriate

Thereís a number of basic inaccuracies in the article.
Heís a current panellist.
Heís from Mullagh not Loughrea.
It is still shocking though.

Iím not suggesting that itís not shocking. But, for a national newspaper, youíd think theyíd have the basic details right. Itís not like theyíre a tabloid.

It was reported on GBFM yesterday that he was from Loughrea also. Probably read out officially in court that he was from that region rather than specifically mentioning the parish/townland whatever. A trivial point. Seems to get more exposure than Hehir, whose indiscretions were probably more serious.

Loughrea would be his local district court.
The fact that Glennon is known on a national scale doesnít help. Iím a keen follower of both codes, and Iíve never heard of Hehir.

He was man of the the match in an All Ireland u21 final. Scored 7/8 points.  Was a serious player.

He's a pretty well known footballer. He scored a goal in the Hyde the year Des Newton managed us and made Galway look like AI contenders. They proceeded to lose to Sligo and Antrim immediately afterwards.

I do love Micko. Plus Micko teams lost 3 All-Ireland finals and 2 All-Ireland semi-finals to Galway. He was almost a good luck charm for us in finals.

A living legend though. The 82 final is my earliest memory. Sporting or otherwise. Another loss he was involved in which seems mad as he won so much.

Looked a great prospect when Galway won an U-21 All-Ireland with him one of the main men in the team. Was probably elevated to senior a bit too soon afterwards as I remember him playing against Mayo the following year at senior and looking a bit lost. In a poor Galway side to be fair to him which didn't help. He kinda disappeared after that. At least as far as intercounty goes.

Brady had to get 4 stitches in a cut between his thumb and index finger. He will be fine.

Taking the piss out of Ray Darcy (not difficult) and RTE, Shane wouldn't have much respect for the RTE establishment.

Don't jump to his bait. I was speaking to someone over Christmas who knows one of his in laws. She told him most of them are wary of him and give him a wide berth. I do the same now after hearing that.

That's getting a bit personal DM.  No need.

Yes. Out of order!!!!

but using death of Dolores O' Reardon to try and get a cheap laugh is ok....?

No itís not but two wrongs donít make a right
