GAA Discussion / El Classico - Breffni Park, Saturday 18th
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:42:55 AM »
Has there ever been a more low key build up to the greatest Derby in the game?

Mickey Graham has said all year it is all about championship. Gearoid McKiernan is back fit and going well. However Cavan dont have high scoring forwards if the league is anything to go by.

Monaghan missing a few but they have McManus and some able support from elsewhere and that has been the difference in previous meetings.

Freetakers would be in Monaghans favour too with Cavans efforts in the league on that front really poor.

Bookies have it 2/1 Cavan and 1/2 Monaghan

It will be close but it is surely time for normal service to resume and the Ulster Kingpins to reassert themselves as top dogs.

Sad to hear of his death, an important figure in GAA and sports journalism. I personally enjoyed reading his Indo articles.

GAA Discussion / Ulster Minor/U17 Championship
« on: April 28, 2019, 10:13:54 AM »
Round 1 games played yesterday

Cavan 2-14 Fermanagh 1-7
Armagh 0-4 Derry 1-5
Donegal 1-8 Tyrone 1-12
Antrim 1-2 Monaghan 0-6

What are some coaches in Ulster at. 6 scores to 4 in one game and 6 scores to 3 in another. Minor was always the beautiful game and it's being ruined.

Anyone know the draw for next round?

It's been said many a time here and elsewhere that the Irish are a crowd of begrudgers. Don't believe that myself so I'm hoping people can list a few celebrity type people they admire and why?

GAA Discussion / Ulster U17 (minor) Championship

Dont think there is a thread on this.

Does anyone know what the format is as I see there are back door games of some sort in it this year.

GAA Discussion / 21st Century Membership issue
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:47:53 PM »
21st century issues. Wondering how the GAA manages a situation where kids are from a family where the parents have split up. Kids with mother in County A during the week where they go to schools and then with Dad in County B during weekends.

Can they be a member of a club in each county? Which club should they be a member of by GAA law? Have the GAA any provision for such a set up which most surely becoming more and more prominent?

Any info appreciated.

General discussion / Irish Dancing
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:46:12 AM »
Hello all. Recently my daughter starter Irish dancing. It was innocent enough to start with but I am becoming very uncomfortable with it. My Mrs doesn't agree! These are my concerns, interested to hear from others in a similar situation on what they did. My daughter is 10 yrs old.

1- Kids from 4 yrs old competing as in there are winners and losers. Seems to me it should be about enjoyment at that age. Other sports are non competitive under 10.
2 - Fake tan and wigs. Sexualising small children in my opinion. Apparently you get marked down if you do not conform.
3- Feiseanna are some of the most disorganised shambles of events I've ever encountered. Last one my daughter arrived home at 1am, she was gone since 2pm to an event 1 hr from our house.
4- It's all about money. 1000 euro dresses (marked down if you don't wear at certain grades), expensive to enter, allow people to walk of  the street and register to fill the coffers, that's why it's so disorganised, place full of people selling crap.
5- Medals for all. Huge trophies and medals. It's like chocolate for kids keeps them coming back.
6- Psycho Mammies. They'd whinge about their kids being out in the rain for an hour's football, or having to support a  local football club but all the above is ok.
7- What's any of this doing to support the culture of traditional Irish dancing

I'm hoping someone will come on here and tell me I'm totally wrong and why.

A classic el classico in Breffni. Cavan 4 up with 15 to go but anything could happen. Both teams having purple patches and scoring heavily.

Anyone have any interest in this? Ulster is starting this weekend, not sure about the other provinces. One good thing is that it can be run off earlier as none of the players should be doing final year school exams.

GAA Discussion / Mixed sex underage football
« on: March 25, 2017, 12:47:38 PM »
Quick question. Up until what age group in football are boys and girls allowed to play together? When I was young I think it was up to and including U12. Anyone know the rules now?

GAA Discussion / Aogán Ó Fearghail Presidency
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:10:36 AM »
What does everyone think of the reign of the previous president? It gives me no pleasure to say it as a fellow Cavan man, but I read Joe Brolly's article below and found myself in almost total agreement. I listened to all the candidates prior to the last election and Aogán was very strong on clubs and fixtures, that was his No 1 priority. I look back and what I see is that zero has been done and club players have been forced to set up their own union as a result. In fact I really wonder what this man did at all for the last 2 years. This Super 8 thing seems to have been pulled out of Duffys backside with no consultation with clubs and does very little to address any fixture congestion.

Have I got it wrong. Was Ó Fearghail a pioneer who set in motion critical change or was he another conservative leader who did nothing?
