GAA Discussion / Finishing on the Day -
« on: July 05, 2018, 07:05:30 PM »
Here is the link from GAA website.

Note that the football free taking contest will have kicks from 33m out (top of the D).

RTE article states kicks will be from the 45...

Hopefully the referees will be aware of the rules of the competition and have the kicks taken from the correct distance.

GAA Discussion / All-Ireland Junior Football Championship 2017
« on: June 27, 2017, 10:22:04 PM »
All-Ireland Semi Finals set for Saturday 22 July.

Leitrim v Kerry

Britain v Meath  (Britain's final is Warwickshire v Kilkenny on Saturday 1 July)

Kerry beat Cork tonight AET to claim the Munster Championship on a score of 4-24 to 3-20, sides were level at 2-17 apiece after 60 minutes.  No defences must have shown up in Pairc Ui Rinn.

Any idea why Ulster doesn't enter a team?

Final set for 5 August.

General discussion / Staff meeting at the Palace
« on: May 04, 2017, 07:37:37 AM »
Anyone clued in to the agenda of this meeting?

With the issues of the last few days on the board, I was wondering what would we do if she passed on to the great cyberhole of wherever.

What will we do if this place is gone?  Having a more active presence on the county forum is the most logical choice - assuming the mods are reasonable.

What other options are there?

GAA Discussion / County by County performance in qualifiers era
« on: November 05, 2016, 02:08:55 AM »
Since the qualifiers started in 2001 here is the spread of performances, showing the number of counties in each category.

Multiple All-Ireland titles: 3 (Kerry 5, Dublin 4, Tyrone 3)
Single All-Ireland title: 4 (Galway, Armagh, Cork, Donegal)
Finalist, but no title: 3 (Meath, Mayo, Down)

Semi-finalist, but never made it to the final: 5 (Derry, Fermanagh, Wexford, Kildare, Tipperary)

Quarter-finalist, but never made it to the semi-final: 8 (Westmeath, Roscommon, Sligo, Laois, Monaghan, Limerick, Cavan, Clare)

Leaving those who never made it to a quarter-final: 10 (Waterford, Leitrim, Antrim, Longford, Louth, Carlow, Wicklow, Offaly, London, New York).

So...7 different winners, 10 different finalists, 15 different semi-finalists, 23 different quarter-finalists, 10 failed to get to a quarter-final, and one county never entered (Kilkenny).

Any surprises in all that?

GAA Discussion / Kerry v Tyrone
« on: July 16, 2012, 08:51:15 AM »
Let's get it started.

The end for one team or the other?

Especially Kerry...not much coming through.

i suppose it would only be fitting that Tyrone would drive that final nail.

Or is there something that Kerry can produce at home....

Weeshie Fogarty says:  No County has a publication that even comes close to the level of detail presented in Niall Flynn’s “36 and Counting…Kerry’s Football Story to 2009”

It’s amazing despite being the most successful football county in Ireland that some scribe has not put pen to paper earlier and record for posterity the names and achievements of the long list of Kerry men who have worn the green and gold with such distinction.  This book rights a terrible wrong; that of not remembering our past as it should be.  This magnificent publication is a tribute to all those great men who donned the green and gold for their county through the decades.

Between the covers of this book are the names and achievements, not alone of the Kerry players who have won the coveted Celtic cross on All Ireland final day in Croke Park, but also, and for me more importantly, the names of the unknown and almost-forgotten men who gave their all for the sake of their county without achieving the glory of an All Ireland medal. 

The teams, the names, the facts, the figures, the scorers, the opponents, the dates are all brought together here for you in one superb publication for the very first time. What Niall has published is one of the greatest contributions to the story of Kerry football since The Kerryman’s legendary GAA reporter, Paddy Foley, published his history of Kerry football in 1944. That work was entitled simply “Kerry’s Football Story”.   Niall includes the same words here as a small tribute to PF’s account.

Niall's addition of a short summary of news events, both at home and abroad, for each year adds a touch that will educate, recall, and enlighten all of his readers to events long since forgotten. This section of the publication is fascinating in its own right. I am fully convinced that a copy of this publication will in time rest in every GAA home in Kerry and beyond. On this score it is a must. It will settle many an argument and browsing through its 400 pages or so will pass many an idle hour during those long winter evenings. 

Most importantly of all, Niall has now assured that those men who donned the jersey even once with their beloved county have not been forgotten or erased from history’s pages but thankfully have been written into the pages of Kerry’s amazing football story.

Statistics on Players are from 1928-2009, while County Statistics go from 1884-2009:

Top 20 Scorers (goals and points combined); Top Goal Scorers; Top Points-only scorers;
Top Average per Game Scorers (20 game minimum); Top Scorers in an Individual Game;
Most Goals-only in One Game; Most Points-only in One Game;
Top Appearances from 1928-2009 – the 36 with 40; Darragh Ó’Sé - Details of an Ironman
All the Goalkeepers 1928-2009; Top 6 Family Names.

Kerry’s Record when scoring x (goals and points combined) expressed as a percentage.
Kerry’s Record when Scoring Goals; Kerry’s Record when Conceding Goals;
Goal Scoring Differential Analysis; Kerry’s Record Points-only; Replay Records;
Kerry’s Biggest Winning Margins; Kerry’s Greatest Losing Margins
County by County and Province by Province Records 1884-2009;

Instead of an index, the book has a Register of Players, which reads as a players CV, for example, the 5 players with last name starting with "A" that played Championship Football for Kerry since 1928 are:

Aherne, Darren; 1995; (1-1) in 1 appearance      
Aherne, Pat; 1963; 1 appearance
Aherne, Roger; 1928; 1 appearance      
Ashe, Mickey; 1959; 1 appearance
Ashe, Tom; 1949-1953; (4-9) in 9 appearances
