General discussion / Vatican - No more scattering of ashes
« on: October 26, 2016, 11:29:30 AM »
So the Vatican have released new guidelines telling catholics they aren't allowed to scatter or hold ashes on anything other than Church approved holy ground?

Money making scheme in my opinion....

GAA Discussion / Footballing "Style" within your club
« on: November 19, 2014, 11:08:51 AM »
I know it will be necessary to adopt your style of play in matches to counteract the opposition, however, does your club preach a certain footballing “style” or “philosophy” that is ingrained throughout all your underage structures and all your coaches buy in to?  E.g. are you a kicking club?  A hand-passing club?  A club of blanket defenders?  Attack in waves?  All of the above? 

If you are, how do you implement this?  Do you have one coach in a coordinating role ensuring everyone is committed to “the philosophy”, or is there direction taken from your existing Senior Management Team?

Or, if you don’t have a particular philosophy, is it the case that you just allow the kids to learn the game through making their own mistakes along the way and not worry about one particular style?


GAA Discussion / Underage Awards
« on: September 24, 2014, 03:03:27 PM »
Well, what's your opinion on Underage Awards?  What do you do at your club?

Should there be awards for Under-8's / P3-P4?

We normally do Player of the Year and Most Improved Player and then all the kids get a medal.  My preference would be not to have awards at this age group.

GAA Discussion / Under 8's / 10's query
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:50:39 PM »
Just a bit of a straw poll here if you please for those involved in underage football.

If your club participates in small blitz type tournaments or Go Games are the teams made up by birth year or Primary school year? Is this consistent across your County?

Would you have a preference? Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things?

General discussion / The Turner Prize
« on: October 23, 2013, 08:46:12 PM »
Had a dander round the Turner Prize Exhibition today in Derry. Strange to say the least. However, the video exhibition and works in Gallery 2 by some French girl was pretty good. Very thought provoking.

Anyone else planning on getting up to it?

General discussion / RTE Player

How do I convince the RTE Player to let me watch the Ireland match on my laptop from the north?

Planning on a roadtrip to Polkraine for the Euros next summer.

Will be taking a campervan so any  advice on roads, ferries etc. Would be appreciated.

General discussion / Daniel O'Donnell on Gay Byrne
« on: August 05, 2011, 10:45:42 PM »
Not literally, but I thoroughly enjoyed that programme tonight. In fact, I haven't laughed as much in years.

He's an institution is Daniel.

Watch it?

General discussion / Airtricity in the North
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:19:23 PM »
Lads, I had some dude call at the house there asking me to switch from NIE to Airtricity.  Offering a reduced rate etc for 1 or 2 years, depending on how long you want to sign up for.  Pay by Direct Debit, paperless billing, read your own meter and all that jazz.

Obviously I can't make a decision on my own and need the wise words from my fellow GAA Boarders before I sign up to anything.

So, anyone made the switch?  Any hassle?  Any problems?  How's the customer service?  Noticed any reduction in your bill? etc etc.

Thanks!  :)

General discussion / Fundraising ideas?
« on: January 24, 2011, 08:07:04 PM »
Dudes, bit of advice needed if you please!!!

The missus is thinking about organising a charity event for the Cancer Treatment and Research Trust (specifically for the Trophoblastic Tumour Screening and Treatment Centre), a charity which helped her a lot over the past year and a half. So I need some fundraising tips!

Karaoke night? Disco? 70's night?  What do you think would be a good night out and most importantly, would raise lots of money for the charity?

I've organised a gig night in the past for another charity so I was thinking about doing something different.

Any ideas welcome!
