I thought it a strange performance from Munster who despite being outmatched could have gotten something from the game but too many errors when in great positions combined with some cute hoorism (tackling the ref to prevent a try) stopped them from ever getting back into it after their very poor start. Zebo's exclusion was a strange one which cost Munster dear. Would still fancy Leinster in the final though.

Think Leinster would beat the pick of Munster and Racing at the minute....playing great stuff

Well, Munster are missing Tyler B, Chris Farrell, Jaco Taute, Chris Cloete, Tommy O’Donnell

I think Cloete was missed very badly yesterday.

Tadhg Beirne will be a good signing but the disparity in the schools and academy between Munster and Leinster is very apparent. Munster are just not producing backs like Ringrose, Larmour etc. They'll always be 'hard to beat' but when you come up against elite teams in big matches, that's not enough.

Schools, schools, schools.
You know yourself. Leinster can comfortably have a club academy, as well as a schools academy.
Not as many schools in Munster, nor is it near the level of the money-racket that Leinster schools is.
A lot more fee paying schools in Dublin alone, than in Munster. Patrician College Newbridge is the only non fee-paying school that enters THE Leinster Schools Senior Cup.

Ha!

No wonder Naas CBS have passed them out. Have the Dominican College taken up football instead?

A video potraying the views of Tyrone GAA Manager Mickey Harte was recently shot at our pitch WITHOUT Club knowledge or consent. Our Club is non-political and non-sectarian - as such we would never tell citizens how to vote - that is a matter for individuals to decide at the ballot-box, none of a GAA Club's business. We have requested that the video, falsely associating our Club with Mr. Harte's views, be taken down forthwith.
 PS - Tyrone Co.Board has expressed regret at any annoyance caused to CC Club/members by Mr.Harte's unauthorised use of our premises - but also regrets it is unable to take down the video.

That's fairly black and white for me.
If right is right, a suspension will follow.
Gives Croke Park some leverage anyway.
If Harte was suspended as a matter of interest, how would Tyrone fans react?

would be very divided opinion. Some think he can do no wrong, others have had enough of him

Wonder what the county board think.
To be honest, I don't think Croke Park will go after him on this as it will stir up a hornets nest.
They should though.

What about the women who used gaa grounds to promote the no vote? Should the GAA “go after them too”?

For all the talk of this being about the principle of it there’s very little talk of any other of the GAA athletes involved in this bar Harte. Sheridan has been mentioned once but Gallagher and the rest have been mentioned in the midst of hardly any posts. Now I’m not aiming this at you jinxy but some people are barely concealing their dislike of Harte behind the thin veil of concern for the GAA’s non political stance.

Just me, or does anyone else notice attendance levels to be extremely high at club games so far this season?

Great to see

Definitely higher than last year
Ours is well up. However I assumed it was division 2 itis.

They’d have to reciprocate the action with those groups who used the GAA as a vechile to further the repeal movement. I don’t think they’ll want to wade into this mess and I’d say a strongly worded cease and desist sort of letter is what they’ll go with and I’d say that’s also the correct line of action.

The obsession of Irish media and some Irish people with the British royal family. I don't get it. What is wrong with these people. If you are obsessed with reading about them you are a sad sad b**tard.
It's hardly just an Irish phenomenon, it's pretty much a worldwide one. The 'merkins are probably even more obsessed.

Most countries have a media sector that slobber over foreign or local royalty. France got rid of the monarchy years ago  but the magazines plough on.
Thehistoric  relationship between the English royal family and Ireland would you imagine influence how people see the institution but it obviously doesn't.  WTF
