A countryís government will say they are so happy being in the EU, but the people think differently. The Lisbon Treaty being the perfect example.

For all this EU arselicking from Dublin, a lot of ordinary  Irish people donít like or trust the EU.

Fake news.

Vested interest lobby group commissions poll that gives it the result to justify its agenda shocker.

P.S just to correction one slight inaccuracy in your intelligent insightful post , Mayo do compete in hurling albeit in the Nicky Rackard Cup and Keith Higgins has won a Railway Cup for Connacht in both football and hurling. I thin k only Kilkenny and Cavan compete in only one code at intercounty level!!
Cavan do compete in hurling again and Kilkenny play in the junior championship in football.

Venue choice for the Corofin V Gwedore is strange. Would have thought Sligo would be more suitable.
Markievicz Park isn't available at the moment so that wasn't an option.

They could have gone to Ballyshannon instead though it is a bit closer to Gweedore than Corofin. Though given that Carrick is almost twice as long a trek for Gweedore as it is Corofin that shouldn't have been a problem.

Brogan's tweet was funny in that it shows how sensitive the LOI mob are!
It certainly has. I've no particular ill-feeling towards the LOI (have gone to watch the Rovers the odd time) but there is a sizeable element of their support who utterly despise the GAA and love to remind you of that at every opportunity, and there's plenty of them to be found in the Showgrounds every other Saturday. Brogan might have been tone deaf as regards the concerns of the rest of us but he certainly snared that mob with that tweet.

Hard to know between them and some of the hardline athletics types who is more embittered towards the GAA though.

A small minority in my experience. Jerry Kiernan is not a representative sample. Maybe it's a Kerry thing - JJ Hanrahan has thrown out anti-GAA comments in the past too.
Kiernan is obviously one, but I also had a colleague of Kiernan's closer to home in mind in that regard, has a column in one of the local papers which is purportedly about athletics but regularly throws in cheap shots at the GAA whenever he can.

A right punch in the gut to concede a goal at the death when hanging on for the win, another one to thank our magnificent keeper for. A much improved display from last week in difficult conditions but with nothing to show for it it's looking a tad bleak from here. The red card for Hughes looked rather harsh too, will be a loss given he did reasonably well today.

Good to see a league game being played in our ground, big day for the club. Will want to be vastly improved from last Sunday but we live in hope.

The match organisers should have contacted the GAA quietly and asked if they could use PUC. They didnít, it came out in the public, and the media forced the GAAís hand. They had little choice but to allow it. The GAA would have allowed it anyway, but it was the way it was done that wrangles me.

But one thing thatís come out of it all, Damian Duff is a wee p***k.

My opinion exactly, 1st paragraph.
1st and 2nd for me.

Not much hope for us this year it would seem.

Absolute rubbish that senior teams last played on 2nd December in provincial final and have to wait until 16th Feb to play again. 11 week gap with no games or anything.

In the mean time players cant play for collages or county team and also end up getting no break all year round.

The club calendar is a shambles
Forcing the club championships into one calendar year would cause mayhem without an even more truncated intercounty season to go with it, but would it be an idea to run off the semi-finals pre Christmas and leave the club finals to the traditional St. Patrick's Day slot?

Will be interesting to see how Leitrim get on this year, there seems to be a sense of optimism about them at the moment that was absent pretty much since the Moran/Morrison days. Could be titling at promotion if it comes right. But Derry really ought to be making a swift return to D3.

Great win for Easkey today, good to see one Sligo side will be gracing Croke Park this year anyway. Will be tough against the latest Kerry "junior" juggernaut but they'll give it a rattle.

I suppose we'll take another year of keeping heads above water, but it could be harder this time.
