I'm a fairly unique type.  I'm a born and bred Sheffield bloke.  But like watching GAA.  I've turned up at games from Manchester to Cork and few places in between as a lone traveller with a Yorkshire (or anywhere English) accent.  I've met people who call the GAA an anti-English faction.  I say very pro-Irish needn't mean anti-anywhere.  I come along to games for no other reason than to watch what I think are two great sports.  That said, I would never risk waving a Union Jack or even St.George cross at a venue.  But eh.  It would be greatly noticed if in view of what happened in Manchester last night there was some kind of solidarity gesture towards the victims, if not all Britain, at upcoming GAA games.

The PRO of Lancashire issued a statement...

All at Lancashire GAA would like to send our deepest sympathies to those who have died or injured last night.
Manchester has been a home for us exiled Gaels for years - as we arrived here for work,family or university. They treated us as one of their own.
These welcoming actions were clearly to be seen again last night, as the Manchester people were thrust into action to help those in the greatest of needs in the aftermath.

I agree J70 life has to go on but the difference with this attack is that it seems to have been purposely directed at kids and teenagers which they know will have more impact on how people react to the terror.

Kids are a lot more vulnerable than adults and you would imagine that parents will now really worry about sending their kids out to events like this in the future. If you have kids would you be happy to send your teenage daughters or sons to a gig in NYC this weekend or would you think twice now?

Do you see much security on the streets in New York these days or after events like this in Europe?
Do you think much about terrorism in your normal week?

I stayed in a hotel on the same street last month where the Berlin attack happened (6 months previous). There were a serious loads of cops there at the market; plus boulders all around the place.

Good article on Derry News Now

https://www.derrynow.com/gaa/thomas-mallon-joins-padraig-cassidy-derrys-exit-door-ahead-tyrone-clash/164280

Derry's missing men:  Michael Conlan, Ciaron O’Boyle, Mick O’Kane, Callum Mullan-Young, Eoin McNicholl, Gareth McKinless, Shane Heavron, Eoghan Brown, Emmett Bradley, Oisin Duffy, Dermot McBride, Sean Leo McGoldrick, Christopher Bradley, Ryan Ferris, Connor Kearns, Conor Murphy, Peter Quinn, Niall Holly, Liam McGoldrick, Daniel McKinless, Joe Morgan, Shane McGahon, Shane Mulgrew, Gavin McWilliams, Cailean O’Boyle, Declan Mullan, Brian Óg McGilligan, Barry McGoldrick, Kevin Johnston, Padraig Cassidy.
Is this post serious?? Michael conlan and mick okane aren't even first choice for their clubs at the minute. Would Shane Mulgrew brian og Mcgilligan Gavin McWilliams, Kearns, Quinn Morgan or McMahon make the current slaughtneil team or the ballinderry team of a couple of years ago?
Fair enough we are missing some good players but don't be making excuses for the sake of it

Shockingly shite report there; fecking hell. I was wondering why my name wasn't in it for a second as they named every other footballer in the county.

Step 1
We've got them fighting amongst themselves.

Step 2
We've got them discrediting Mickey Harte

Check

Step 3
Get them thinking about 2006

Step 4
Beat the feck out of their supporters as they pass through Strabane on Matchday and team up with the 'lads' in Newbuildings to destroy the team bus.

Pending

It's all going to plan.......

Step 5. Remember that your team is pure shite and get thumped by 15 points again.  ;)

I'll be attending this game, my first Championship game in 5 years. I'm looking forward to it but we won't have a hope in hell.

Couldn't tell ye what happened as I wasn't there ( although I could make a good stab at it), but if ye want to know what happened at a Lancashire football game, then I'm your man.

Jesus oh I am only back from the kingdom! Don't even want to be thinking about this after that showing.

f**k it, we don't want it either.  We will call it a draw and have a replay a week after instead.
