GAA Discussion / Dublin v Kerry AI final 20th September 2015

The final a lot of people wanted to see.

I'd loved to have seen Mayo win the AI but they're going to have to wait another year.

Dublin will be hard to beat. Bring it on.

GAA Discussion / Why do we do it ?
« on: September 01, 2015, 01:13:27 PM »
We moan, groan, complain etc and the players give up their lives for it and for little reward.


So why do we continue to want to wear the county jersey ?.

GAA Discussion / Joe Kernan's international rules squad
« on: March 31, 2015, 09:56:06 AM »
So big Joe has got the job this time around.

I hope he doesn't decide to go all defensive on the Australians.  ;)

It's understood former All-Ireland winners Darragh O Se (Kerry) and Padraic Joyce (Galway) will join former Kildare footballer Dermot Earley as Kernan's selectors.

DUP aren't happy. Sammy is up in arms. What was in it for the DUP ? Everybody else seem to be opposed.

Any USA based posters care to contribute on the US experience ?.

Sounds like the energy company realise that the GAA as the biggest community and sporting group in the county might get this delivered easier than other initiatives.

GAA Discussion / Barry Owens hangs them up
« on: June 25, 2014, 01:58:23 PM »
Barry Owens has hung them up. He was some servant to Fermanagh. Came through the pain barrier on more than a good few occasions and gave all he had to the cause.

He doesn't owe Fermanagh a thing.

Drone takeaways set to be one the norm.

Flying pizzas may soon be available in India, after an outlet there said it had successfully delivered by drone.

Inspired by the news that online retail giant Amazon was planning to use unmanned drones to deliver goods, staff at Francesco’s Pizzeria in south Mumbai decided to try one out as a means to beat the city's notorious traffic.

"We successfully carried out a test delivery by sending a pizza to a customer located 1.5 kilometres away from our outlet on May 11," Francesco's Pizzeria Chief Executive Mikhel Rajani told the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency.

"What we have done now will be common place in the next four to five years," he said, adding that the customised four-rotor drones each cost around €1,500.

The drone carried the pizza box over shops, cricketers and the coastline of the financial capital before landing on a high-rise rooftop.

Rajani believes the test will lead the way to a cheaper and quicker service than their usual two-wheelers can provide by road.

He said there were some glitches, however, such as batteries running out after 8km and drones being banned from flying over security establishments.

Mumbai police said they would be seeking an explanation from the pizza firm as to why they were not informed about the test run.

"As per norms, permission must be taken for flying any such object," said Additional Police Commissioner Madhukar Pandey.

"We are very sensitive towards anything that flies in the sky with the help of remote control," he explained.

It is thought to be the first time a drone has found such a use in India, although the UK arm of Domino's Pizza posted a YouTube video last year showing the "Domino's DomiCopter" apparently doing a test delivery.

Hurling Discussion / Six inch nail for Tony Browne
« on: April 18, 2014, 12:18:14 AM »
What a warrior. 41 years of age.

One of the greatest and certainly most sustained careers in Irish sport has come to an end. Tony Browne, the relentless Waterford wing back, has finally stepped off the inter-county carousel in his 41st year.
The Mount Sion defender made his debut for the Déise against Galway in a national league encounter way, way back in 1991.
“I would like to take this opportunity to officially announce my retirement from inter-county hurling,” said Browne.
“To do so is always a tough decision for any athlete but I know I have been blessed in so many ways to have experienced what I have with the Waterford hurling teams over the past three decades.”
That included some rousing, never to be forgotten hurling epics, which yielded four Munster championship titles and three All Stars, the last coming in 2007, but despite a 23 year crusade, an All-Ireland medal remained elusive.
Browne was named hurler of the year in 1998.
That he out lasted younger heroes from Waterford’s golden era, like John Mullane and Ken McGrath, is an achievement in itself.
“Throughout those years I had the honour of playing with and against some of the greatest players ever seen in the game,” Browne added. “I would like to thank all of the past and present players for their wonderful support and friendship throughout my career.”
