GAA Discussion / Re: Bars in GAA Clubhouses - Yay or Nay??
« on: April 05, 2017, 07:04:07 PM »
We have a bar in our rural club that has beaten all the odds and is still on the go after more than 20 years. It takes a mix of paid and voluntary staff to keep it going. It is not a big money spinner, but it provides a positive social aspect to our club.

The only down side at the moment would be a recent spat of anti social behaviour coming from our "own" people!! We are considering getting new doors installed.



With this in mind we are drawing up a set up bar rules and code of conduct! Do any of you out there have these already that you would be willing to show? Just to provide a template to start from?

We have a Brian Cody for the serious side but would like a second speaker more for the craic. Wouldn't necessarily need to be Gaa personality, just sports personality !
Have had Joe Brolly before (club member) so maybe give him the nite off to let his hair down 😜

Well if Joe is a club member then he is the first to ask! Simonstown Gaels celebrated their 50 years in 2015 and held a legends night. Colm got a load of his Indo buddies in, including Joe. It was an excellent night. My favourite was Kimmage, but Joe was excellent. Colm being the local man was slightly reserved, but a well put together night and the MC was crucial, on that occasion it was another Simonstown man who writes for Independent news and media in the big shape of Colm Keyes. Basically, I'm saying, ask Joe about the Simonstown gig

The Fog of War as linked above is a good watch.

I enjoyed *cough*cough* watching this one about the Major Fraud on Who Wants to be a Millionaire

Plenty of full episodes of the Nat Geo "Aircrash Investigations" full episodes on You Tube. The famous Gimli Glider is a good win with a happy ending!

General discussion / Re: Quinn Insurance in Administration
« on: December 14, 2012, 07:51:56 PM »
Delegates at the Fermanagh GAA County Convention have passed a resolution in support of Sean Quinn and his family.

Sean Quinn was sentenced to nine weeks in jail last November for contempt of court, while his son has also served a prison sentence for failing to comply with court orders to stop putting international assets out of the reach of IBRC, formerly known as Anglo Irish Bank.

The statement read: "Sean Quinn and the Quinn Group has been a very generous supporter of the Fermanagh GAA family for a long time and his exceptional innovative skills have brought great benefits to all Fermanagh people.

"Delegates also expressed concern regarding the future of employment under the direction of the current management who now control the Quinn Group.

"Fermanagh GAA wishes to express their best wishes to Sean and his family at this time and hope that 2013 will bring a favourable conclusion for the Quinn family in their present difficulties."

Well Done Fermanagh CB   ::) Bringing more shame on the GAA

At last common sense prevailed and we have gotten actual "Natural Justice", it only took two DRA hearings to get it!! And what now, a few days short of the month of December, we will have the Minor Championship Final.

I don't think that anyone could blame the Clans for taking the initial objection, but the lengths that they went to and the Amazing decision of the Louth Hearings Committee have just made a joke of the whole thing and made all them look foolish (to say the least).

At least now our lads can focus on trying to emulate the team of 94 and Win the League and Championship Double  8) (facing the Clans in the league final!!!)

No surprise with Eamonn Mac getting the Gers job, it was rumoured even before they played us in the championship. A good deal of disharmony in that camp this year, Gallagher is a good coach, but there was a section of the Gers who throw the rattle out of the pram by all accounts and weren't interested in playing for him! (If talk is to be believed)

Kelly is a good appointment for the Blues, maybe they can give the Pats some competition next year, as I think it will take Clogher another year to get to where they need to be at to be senior champions! You heard it here first, Blues or Pats for 2013 Senior Championship (no ground breaking prediction there) and Dreadnots to win it in 2014!!

Just looking at the fixtures for next Sunday. Now there is no matching our County Hearings Committee for Amazing decisions. But how did the CCC get away with fixing the U16 championship involving the Gers & the Marys for Haggardstown???

From what I gather the minor board dragged their feet getting a replay played and the senior board had the intermediate final fixed, we were given the option of playing on another day but mentors wanted to play before the adult game.

Not the first time that a mid louth club has suffered at underage level this year in the cross fire between the minor and senior board. They are like a pack of kids! Best of Luck on Sunday, O'Connels and Mary's to take home both cups I hope

Louth's current PRO is excellent, I think that the senior final programme in Louth won an award last year, don't know if it was best in Leinster, or best in the country
I was at a good few finals last year and am doing plenty this year too. Best I've seen by far are what Ronan produces in Louth.

He's a top class PRO overall, although somebody should tell the Louth Hearing's committe that they can't use his tweet's to overturn a refs report!
