We can't blame Coldrick, bad as he was.  Defensive approach was brutal.  Letting Kildare carry the ball so far up the field, without a challenge.  What was the thinking there?

Kildare very cynical.  Ref completely let them be cynical.  A disgrace.  Derry very naive in defence.

McElduff is a disgrace.  He knew exactly what he was doing.  But you still deflect.

Let me tell you defenders of this crap something else. There will be no united Ireland without a proportion of current day unionists supporting it. We have that opportunity now due to the calamity of Brexit. United Ireland might make some financial/economic sense to middle ground unionists. The old guard in Republican circles are put out to pasture which makes it a bit easier to do for them too. Things are moving into place. And then you have a total f**king moron like this guy doing this. Unionists need to see that there losses will be respected in any new republic. Anyone who calls themselves a republican should understand that.

Sinn Fein leadership need to toss this fool out on his hole and show that while Arlene and her cronies have no shame, republicans will deal with this stuff. I am ashamed to see so many republicans defending this and reverting to "whataboutery" as a defense. Anyone who questions it is a free stater etc etc. Cop the f**k on.

What is important is balance and I think it's very relevant that those Free Staters who come on to express their outrage here are usually the same ones mentioned when it comes to commenting on the disgusting behaviour and obstruction of justice of the establishment parties in their own state.

Play the ball not the man

I've made my comments on this matter. I'm just pointing out the selective outrage from free staters, but there seems to be an agenda to quell this being pointed out.

You know what outrages all free staters? Tell me have I selective outrage too. Curious as to your assessment of this free stater.

I find it odd that a SF MLA making a crass social media post about the Kingsmill massacre, intended or unintended, is something that draws more outrage from the Free Staters than the injustices that have the fingerpints of the Free State establishement parties all over them of late. These are also topical issues such as the Mary Boyle case and the Stardust families. Yet none of those posters could muster any disgust about the role of the parties in that thread.

Ulster Hurling and Camogie champions again. Would be some achievement if they could retain the football title too. I wouldn't bet against it though.

This run Slaughtneil are on really is incredible. They've been on the road now for a long time without much of a break, and a good few of them dual players to boot. Collectively they've some fire in the bellies.

Unless theyíre all IC players itís hard to make out they havenít had a break.

Why bother making a comment like that.  He was just pointing up that they are high achievers.  Derry clubs dont win hurling titles.  They did back to back and a big proportion of that team excel at football as well.

Nail on the head by Brolly.

Does Joe give the substantial figure he gets for writing about GAA away?  What Brolly gets is pay , for doing something, not a handout.

What's the opinion on Macker as Derry manager - good appointment?

I think so. Probably a breath of fresh air he obviously knows how to coach and set up a team for modern day football (surprisingly something we've not been able to do) which is a great first step.

seen Derry minors play against Tyrone, against us(Cavan) in the Ulster final and then last Sunday. There is no setting up of the team re modern football, they play man to man, completely traditional style. Maybe you have seen them more than me and there is evidence of modern systems.

What is so good about what you call modern set ups?

what so good is the wrong question, what is needed is the better question, especially for senior, not that necessary for minor depending on the talent at your disposal. Lets take Dublin who are quality as an example, they had two sweepers on sunday, when tyrone got possession inside their won defense area, which wasn't that often on sunday, all the dublin forwards retreated to their offensive 45 m line and they along started tackling. that's a modern system, I can agree that it is not so good.

Haven't seen this thinking from the Derry management, and as I said maybe not needed as it is minor, but there are some serious holes in that defence that have not been addressed,  it will be needed for senior, otherwise forget about it.

There seems to be a lot of holes in defences of a lot of teams that use modern day systems.  In the Snr Semis scores conceded, using variations of the modern-day systems, were 2-14 (twice), 2-16, 0-17 (conceded by a team that won) and 2-17.

Nail on head there Kilkevan.

My problem with you and your ilk Kilkevan is that you are happy to castigate atrocities of the Brits and co but republican atrocities are ignored.  Alway whatabout.

SF didn't offer the SDLP a pact for this constituency.  They wanted pacts for FST and N Belfast and asked for them.  They didn't want one for S Belfast as they were happy to see SDLP lose.  They only possible winner other than SDLP was Little Pengelly.

In this thread I am afraid there is a lot of revisionism about what the IRA did in the North.  It certainly was a cold place for catholics, GAA supporters and anyone who expressed an Irish identity.  But the idea that the IRA were some great saviours is nonsense.   They killed a lot of those that they purported to be fighting for.  Bombed the crap out of Derry and many other places.  Undertook many actions that were cruel,cowardly and brutal.  Someone said that the GFA wouldn't have happened without them.  Neither you nor I know that, but if you want to say that the IRA gained the GFA I would have to question if the GFA was worth all the deaths they caused.  Certainly the Irish community have most rights that we are entitled to, but we don't know if that would not have happened anyway.  Non-whites in England and USA have gained a fair deal of equality without going through what we did.

Martin Mc Guinness has been a powerful and necessary leader in recent years and has stretched himself for reconciliation.  He deserves recognition for that.
