just wondering what the situation is with grants in terms of solar or any other smaller renewables in terms of a club.
In a connected one, is it possible for a club to have a herd no?

Just wondering have any clubs gone down the solar/ wind route...

Div 2 is tasty in fairness.
I think in one way Kildare need to not be too reliant on Flynn going forward so I'd like to think we could cope without him. the last two years it has been so obvious that we were always looking to him, even if he was isolated.
I just think it is a good chance for others to step up and to tweak tactics a bit.
Would posters not fancy Donegal over Armagh? When is McBrearty back?

Didn't get to see it, but how did Larmour do?

I like him at times, but there is a bit too much fawning over him in the Twitter echo chamber. Like he says what a lot of people my age think and makes some great arguments, but he is not a voice of a generation.
Although in fairness he might not have asked for that, but he is being touted as such from times. He is a very well read fella and very clever but he needs to lose the bag at some stage. He is a skilled interviewer and a great communicator but the plastic bag is a sideshow at this stage.

Just listening to Ciara Kelly on Newstalk and in fairness she did say 'the GAA is better than this'.
The mammies and daddies are now piping up and that is serious. No time for fuckin scummy behaviour.

The f**king saddest thing around all this is that these lads throwing punches and acting hard don't hit a fair shoulder all game or go in for the 50/50 breaking ball.

In Kildare we have Kfm who do all the usual big games and their sports coverage is good overall.
There is also a media partner who have been kept on, but I honestly don't see any output bar a quick chat with the manager or a player at the height of Super 8s. Club scene coverage is non-existent and I didn't see a camera at the county final at all.

But then again the fuckin PA system is fucked in Newbridge for as long as I can remember and it hasn't been seen to.

Wales had youngsters on the filed and lads playing in the Championship and still looked like a more seasoned professional outfit.
FFS I know they are not Champions League players but there are plenty of Premier League lads there who don't just hoof into Row Z every time.
Duffy, Long and Clark can play it five yards forward at club level IF a midfielder shows for them.
Then Christie in a totally unfamiliar position while actual midfielders are on the bench.
Playing smaller lads up front knowing they won't get it into feet.

Countries with players playing at lower levels can do it.

Exactly on this we can't go all Theresa May and have a hard fuckin border. It's far from just Ulster.
If two lads are at each other and one lad gets a clean dig in I wouldn't condone it, but they are fully grown men acting like eejits who are toe to toe.
Suckers punches and lads baling in, a one-in all-in type thing is a massively different thing.

Refs are in a bind on this too as in some clubs there is a madness whereby if they law down the law sure they could be gone for.
A fine will hit any club hardest these days so there needs to be a mechanism in place.

This is a joke now and are you telling me that this hasn't been anything other than calculated by the Carnacon women.
Use of the words unsafe and unhealthy. then they are talking about mental health, fully aware no-one can ever question that without being blacklisted.

Then the only two journos who go to the press conference are Kissane (who wrote a piece in their favour when it first broke) and Jacqui who can't exactly go all out when she has worked with Cora on RTE Radio all summer...

OTB are too afraid to be critical too in case they are called sexist. Ger is really choosing his words carefully in all this.

So what if a manager calls a player lazy?! Am I missing something here. Are you honestly telling me Mick Bohan hasn't had choice words for those Dub women in the last two years??

I think Cora and Cornacon were playing that card a bit too, knowing that Leahy and Co would be the baddies...and they f**king were!
Sinead Kissane and others wrote pieces heavily in their favour. Cora was on Off the Ball twice.
Now we see the tide turning and they might not enjoy their use of loaded words like unsafe.

But they are the ones being cagey and using words like 'unhealthy' and 'very personal' implies so much.

If these issues are serious enough to cause a mass walk-out in the first place they should surely let their own team-mates or the liaison officer know??

The timeline that we have seems to be it became unsafe, unhealthy and not nice all of a sudden. Getting on to your own team-mates to drop off and forfeit a game is hardly helping their case, or making for a good 'environment'.

I usually am a 'jury is out' man on these things, but only one side has given a clear side of events and that was Leahy. If something was so serious that it forced half a squad out, they should be fuckin screaming blue murder and Leahy and his team should be ran from the association.
And yet we wait...and still we hear whispers and implications...

Look this kinda shite would not be tolerated in Cork who are the yardstick for years.
They were a proper team and this all shows a lack of respect from a couple of players to their team-mates and their county.
As said to think they were agitating for players to drop out before a big game, to give a walkover shows where their loyalties lie.

Why are the media so happy just to take her word for it all.

As Wooly was just saying on GAA Hour some of the language used implies something v dodgy and if not true is borderline defamation.
This craic of not saying wtf is going on and claiming that they don't want it in the media when Cora is on OTB, Sinead Kissane wrote a big thing about plkayer welfare issue being lost in all of this - without the fuckin issue being explained.
