Am signed up but did the Bundoran 10 mile last weekend and having trouble with glute and lower back. Havenít been able to run since. Any one ever have problem with their Sacroiliac joints? From some light reading think this might be the issue. Need to get it looked at but struggling to get time.

Nothing worse than niggling injuries that screw up your training block. I've really struggled over the past few months with a combination of things. The physio will see point you in the right direction but working on some fundamentals will do you no harm. I've been following these guys on Instagram for a while and they post some great stretches for hips, lower back etc. Getting as much flexibility in those areas as possible will help you a lot.

This guy also does a lot of focused exercises that should help you.

This one being specific to your injury.

Good luck!

Cheers for that. Have to try and get seen this week. Have only been running since Jan and never had a injury until the week before the Bundoran run, I had a slight twinge in the left calf. So rested it all week and rolled away. But felt it at about 8 miles in the run and think I was trying to carry it and now have screwed up my whole left side. From lower back, down into my glute and hamstring. Nightmare.

Have stayed off it since the run but the half is in 3 weeks so gutted that I can't do anything. If's it's not right by next week I may pull the plug for the half.

Mary Lou marching behind an ĎEngland get out of Irelandí banner.  Thatís embarrassing.  All SF have to do is keep their mouths shut and let the DUP get the bigots prize, but they always manage something offensive.

The Shinners have played this entire brexit thing horribly from the start. Constantly bleating on about a border poll has resulted in the extreme unionists coming to the fore again and digging their heels in. Its quite conceivable that if the british leave the EU that scotland will leave the UK and NI would follow. Mary Lou doesn't seem to realise or care that even though she may get a majority in the North for a UI, if there is even a possible sniff of hassle for the south she won't get it here. People in the south are not going to suck up the initial financial hit and have the UDA planting bombs in Dublin. The best thing that SF could do is get the assembly open again, do their utmost to work with the unionists, remove as much as possible the hatred between the two and wait for the general population to get pissed off importing goods from, or going through customs checks in france, germany, spain etc and decide the benefits of the EU outweigh any of being in the UK.

This was tried before - that's why the Shinners pulled out.  DUP still have the notion that it's 1960. They had their chance to share power on an equal basis.  Unionists showed, as in the 20's, 60's and 70's etc. etc. that they are not able to share power with nationalists.

No return to Stomont - they had their chance and blew it.


You do realise the unionists couldn't give a Damn about storming. They're happy with direct English rule. Tell them to stick it if ya want but it only hurts the nationalists.
Explain to me how Stormont is an improvement on Direct Rule when the DUP have a veto on anything they donít like? How will handing the control back to The DUP help nationalists? As far as the DUP are concerned it wasnít power sharing.

Towards the end of the first half Dublin were a joy to watch paying the ball around but didn't result in a score
Usual cynicism fromTyrone. Not sure how their no 22 stayed on the pitch after taking out Fenton in the 1st half. Weak ref and Tyrone took advantage. It is strange not to have a league final to forward to

Iíve missed Dublin comments like this. Gives me a nice warm feeling inside reading it.  :D
I suppose its the law of averages. All the times they played each other and dublin won (3 times last year alone) Tyrone had to win one eventually. They are horrible to watch. If you enjoy watching that sadomachism every game good luck to you

Sure itís great to see plucky Tyrone take on the Might of Financially doped Dublin. Real David and Goliath stuff.

Prob not, but I think we've as good a shot as anyone else to beat Dublin. Which is only a long shot unfortunately.

While I think the vast majority of people south of the border are in favour of a UI, most would be apprehensive of the inevitable consequences. The probability of a violent loyalist backlash has most of us very worried.
Right now we have major issues of our own, namely Health, Homelessness and Harris in no particular order.
If there should be a hard Brexit, there will be a renewal of hostilities along the border at the re-introduction of customs posts.
The cost of subsiding the people of NI to the tune of billions of euro annually for the foreseeable future is another mater folks down here won't welcome.
All in all, Marty & Co. should take nothing for granted about public sentiment down south.Maybe a good start would be for the Shinners to tone down their aggressive approach to the debate about unification.

Says the person who uses the terms 'issues of our own', 'folks down here' and 'down south'....very partitionist terminology indeed.

I see Charlie Flanagan on the politics show - pity the interviwer didn't ask him why he hasn't released the Crowley report into the murder of Aidan McAnespie.  It was at a border post.

The GAA, according to some on here, shouldn't get involved in politics but recently they voted to have the report released but Flanagan won't do it - I wonder why?  Oh that's right, he doesn't give a toss about the people of the 6 counties!
<Sigh> ;D ;D
I see you still donít get the message so Iíll spell it out for you.
The vast majority down here would be in favour of a UI. But we have enough problems of our own without having to put up with the antics of the lunatic fringe of SF.
If you and your ilk want to keep fighting the battle of the Boyne over and over again with the extreme loyalist mob who has as little time for compromise and dialogue as you have, them you can frig off and do your point scoring and coat trailing somewhere else.
It would appear that most of the Nationalist in NI are sensible people and know there is more to a UI than a mere majority of one in any referendum that might be held sometime in the future and  I, for one, would have no difficulty in welcoming them onboard.
Itís the loolas fringe that concerns us down here. Thereís a serious possibility that there will be strong opposition from the loyalist faction as it is without you and your fellow-travellers stirring the shit for them.
I dunno why Charlie Flanagan didnít release any report into the murder of Aidan McAnespie and neither do you. It doesnít necessarily follow that he doesnít give a toss about the people of the 6 counties.
You sort out your differences with themmuns first before you bring your problems down here.

I'm sorry Lar but that post absolutely stinks of "I'm alright Jack". You think it's up to Nationalists in the North to engage with the Unionists/ Loyalists? Do you not think the South has a part to play there as well?

Saw Ger Cavlan score the most audacious point at Healy Park for Dungannon, won it out in front of defender who was up his arse, turned round to face the defender on the 45, was satationary defender poised for the next move, took a solo in standing position and 2 steps backwards, sent it over the bar outside of the left foot, absolutely no momentum aside from throwing the leg at it, and with the outside of his weaker foot, there was an audible gasp then ripple of applause from everyone, he was slightly off centre too so 45 plus a few yards for the diagonal, plus conditions, savage, obviously not the same sense of occasion as Dooher v Kerry but scores like those live long in the memory

The Dooher point is definitely one that stands out in my memory. Another point I can vividly remember was Stevie O'Neill v the Dubs in the league in the 125 anniversary game at Croker. Was lucky enough to be down that end of the Cusack lower tier and see it from along that line. He was about half a foot inside the endline, scarcely believable how he managed to put it between the posts.
Canavan in the '05 final under the Canal End stand was a remarkable score as well. Honourable mentions to Peter Harte's monster point in the Ulster Final v Donegal a few years ago in Clones, and Raymie Mulgrew sending a Dublin player down the road to the shop with a dummy before landing a peach in the 2007 game under lights.

Throw in the League final in Division 2 against Kildare where SON scored two or three of the best points you are ever likely to see.  His ability to score from acute angles from both sides off both feet was uncanny, plus his penalties were near perfect too, sort of curled them in behind the post.  Its a shame that he was ravaged was injuries because you could argue that we only really had a year or two when he was at his peak and injury free.

Definitely. O'Neill was the best point taker I saw play for Tyrone, better than Canavan IMO (Not better player). His ability to meet a ball with back to goal and turn and shoot was remarkable in addition to his scores from tight angles. Must have been a nightmare to mark.

Can anyone tell me the current crop of forwards aren't as good as the ones that lifted Sam in 08?

The Current crop aren't as good as the ones that lifted Sam in 2008.
I disagree

 Fair enough. To me it's not even a debate.

Yesterday Martin Millar (Belfast Millionaire) criticised the NI budget.

Are you that much or a bitter, narrow minded, self-loathing Irishman, that you feel the need to translate his name to English? Absolutely warped.

It's his f**king name!
Care to address the point?

You don't get to decide what his "f**king name" is. You display the same characteristics of the worst vestiges of old school unionism - a supremicist attitude (to the point of feeling entitled to tell someone they are wrong about their own name), and a level of deeply rooted bitterness and intolerance and just sheer pettiness that you feel compelled to translate someone's Irish name into English before using it. You have placed yourself firmly in the same category as Nelson, Gregory and Jim. Well done.

You display all the characteristics of a stalker mate.
When you try so hard to get attention don't complain when it comes your way.

Wonder if that was a deliberate or as a result of the Thailand holiday. After AI final i thought Tyrone should target the league this year to give the lads some confidence. We dont seem to be targeting the league for the past few years.

Seems strange that they target the mckenna cup but not the league

Declan Bogue on off the ball today saying he'd heard from a good source that the tyrone panel were approximately 6 weeks behind last year's fitness levels at this stage. Makes sense when you see performances recently. Much better support from runners that was very poor in first two games.

I don't think it's a case that Tyrone target the McKenna cup. I think it's more a case that no one targets it, therefore everyone's on the level playing field with fitness, preparation etc. Where as focus for the league is different in different counties.

I'm glad to see no one has descended to fried bread yet. You'd be as well just getting a bottle of oil and pouring it over the plate.

Ehh hello....what do you think they do with the Soda bread

Toast it?

f**k that....fried in the left over grease from the salty bacon...only job!!!

Maybe I need to clarify, no issue with dropping it into a frying pan and giving it a quick sizzle. I'm more on about the deep fried stuff. (That goes for your farl as well Illdecide).
