Down will suffocate Armagh and win this game handily enough. ;)

But for those who would normally have voted SF but decided not to this time because they aren't back in Stormont - is the memory seriously that short that it has already been forgotten who it was that reneged at the last second on a deal to get back to the assembly? As far as I'm concerned, not voting for SF for that reason is naively punishing SF for the DUP's intransigence.

think its wrong to thin otherwise
council elections first chance possible to mark sf card
1 Brexit wtf are sf doing
2 no Stormont, issues with education, health etc

united Ireland, equality etc are important but jeez its a fking mess out there re jobs pressures on public services etc.

Chatting to a fair few who didnít vote sf
Brexit/ stormont( no storming impacting in schools etc) and complacency for their votes
The main reason.

wait, the pitch in question isn't owned by the GAA?
the GAA club lease it.

well then, that puts a different slant on things
I assume you mean the land is vested in the Gaa and the club use it in accordance with the rules of the gaa for the purposes of activities in accordance with the rules of the Gaa.

If leased from a third party then the landlord then the land isn't vested in the Gaa?

So is the GAA that autocratic that a Club needs to seek permission to run events for its local community? What about this social capital role that the GAA plays and we see referenced in every funding application? I think this insurance business is a complete red herring. Club public liability insurance canít be that tight surely?

If we hire our hall out to a local Irish Dancing school we take a copy of their public liability cover in advance. Same with a Pilates class.

The GAA has tightened up on these extra cirricular activities in a big way.

WRT this particular tournament. why did the organisers play it as a soccer match if this lad was a former member and GAA coach?

Surely it would have made more sense to have a gaelic football tournament or am I missing something?
no one seems to have answered why it was a soccer tournament on gaa land?
why not play Gaa?

I know people will say that i'm biased because i know NL personally but all i'm saying (not defending him) is give him a chance and if he doesn't take his chance and he's not up to the task then give him a few quid and thank him for his efforts and move him on...Simple. I'm a Celtic fan first and I want whats best for Celtic but i'm prepared to give NL a chance and see how he performs, what's annoying me is people don't want him for the job without letting the fella have a proper go (their minds were made up the first day he took over).
10 in a row is too near
we cant take chances at this stage.
sorry I have a lot of time for NL but we need to nail this one.

GAA Discussion / Re: What do New York bring to the Championship
« on: April 16, 2019, 03:33:05 PM »
Is this excercise not just a waste of time at this stage.....

Mayo go over it costs them a fortune the players have a few beers ...Hammer a New York team who don't even go into the back door draw then.....

What if they won a game what would happen then !Is stupid and pointless!

its essential that it continues because the gaa  is more about community than football
remember heading to the states for a summer in the late 80s,, phone call home was simple if I played some ball I would have a job.
for me I would love the new York game to be passed around the provinces as would be brilliant to watch the orchard playing there 
gaa in the states is important to a lot of ex pats,
be it in phillie, boston, new York or san Francisco,
sometimes we lose the run of ourselves over here so its great to head to the US to see how important the gaa still is in these areas.
look at the amount of teams that play in the USA.

18k in Croke Park today!

19,927 is the attendance in Croke Park yesterday!

There were over 28,000 at the Dublin v Tyrone league game at Croke Park 2 years ago.

I thought 20,000 was still a fairly healthy attendance given the weather, the fact that it was being portrayed Tyrone had no chance and the fact it was st patricks weekend with a lot of other distractions. I think if you went back to the fixture 4 years ago that was played on st patricks weekend there was only 16/17000 at it.

But I do think the gaa are missing a huge trick on a game like this. They have proved in the past that when they market a match like this and turn it into an event they get huge crowds. Why they didn't try to tie it in with the st Patrick celebrations I can't work out. Have a big parade and lights show after the game and market it properly. You'd have got loads of tourists and people going for the event and it would have been a great pre st patricks day celebration.

Or why didnít they just play it in Parnell Park.

Feck all atmosphere in Parnell Park. They could have played it out of Dublin, say Thurles.

£19 in to watch Armagh at the weekend and stood on a gravel bank
not much comfort

you got to breathe the good Cross' air.
am surprised I wasn't charged for that as well

How about making football attractive to watch and we might get 25% more people going to all  games?
how about cutting the costs

Half that team will be Armagh lads

Doing what they are told. Itís a f**king disgrace. Simple as that. I am proud of my time playing schools football with the Abbey. We played great football, honest and hard. This shite is a stigma on the game and whoever coached it needs kicked in the hole and told to get out. Disgraceful
Truthfully itís shocking how our abbey teams are presently set up
Was at two Mc Rory games and definitely pewk football
Disappointed is an understatement

That is a pretty compelling article.
Reading that makes you realise the game is now a boogie
The gaa central council  should hold their heads in shame.
