General discussion / An Ghaeilge - No Prods Please!

Yes, you heard. Time you Prods stopped learning this 32 county Sinn Féin language.
Yes, that's you Robert Shipboy McAdam, Dubhghlas de hÍde, Ian Malcolm and Linda Ervine.

Although, I'm not sure if free state Prods are still allowed but they should stop forthwith until we find out.

Sinn Féin own that language, you know.

GAA Discussion / Player Eligibilty Advice
« on: January 05, 2014, 12:32:33 AM »
I've been handed a clusterfuck since taking on a role in my club. My reaction was "This is a serious minefield and has to be rectified immediately  :o :o :o" but maybe I'm wrong. Can someone advise?

We'll call them Club A & Club B.

Both clubs play Hurling, Football and Handball at all levels.

A young lad is registered with Club A and plays hurling and football with Club A.
The young lad's mates play handball for Club B. The young lad has been training with his mates, not necessarily as part of Club B, as Club B don't have an alley but under the guidance of a member of Club B.

Now, the above is all ok, I think. I mean, anyone can book a handball alley at the local leisure centre and play away, whether they play for a club or not.

However, it appears that Club B have thrown this young lad in to play handball for them in at least one senior league game and both the young lad and Club B are under the impression that the young lad is a Club B handballer and that's it.

Now, this is not a case of "he's our player, no he's ours", it makes no real odds to me (although I'd prefer if he played for us) but I'm concerned that he is in no way insured to play for Club B and we are in a potential minefield.

What do ye reckon?

GAA Discussion / Croke Park Staff - Fair Play.
« on: July 28, 2013, 11:16:42 PM »
Leaving the house (in Belfast) for Dublin yesterday, I asked my girlfriend, "you have the tickets?"
"Yeah" says she.

15 minutes down the motorway, I ask again, "You definitely have the tickets?"
"YES", says she in an 'of course I do, stop asking' manner.

So we land in Dublin, park the car and start dandering towards Croke Park. About halfway to the ground, she says "I better make sure I have the tickets." :o

So, she looks in her handbag and then looks at me with a Home Alone "Kevin" look on her face. "They're on the kitchen table".

I'm trying to keep my cool but thinking "WTF?" She was really annoyed at herself so there was no point talking about it as there was fcuk all we could do about it at that stage. We didn't even know our seat numbers etc.

Had sort of resigned myself to buying tickets but said we'll go up and see what they can do for us. Two things on my mind at this stage.
1. Surely every chancer has pulled this one.
2. Surely this happens often enough.

So, we went to one of the ticket offices and got a couple of whinces before they told us to go to the ticket office on Jones' Rd.

Headed there and I'm thinking, "How can we get past Gills' pub without tickets" but surprisingly nobody was checking for tickets there. So, we got to the ticket office.

We approached the front of house type fella and told him the craic. Another whince and I'm thinking "Ballix, no chance". Luckily, his whince was only to tell us that Olive, who deals with this, was on her tea break and would be back in 10 minutes. He was sound as fcuk and said it's not a big problem but we would need to get our section, seat numbers and if we could get the ticket barcodes it'd make it easier. I said I could get someone to go to the house and get all that.

He gave me a pen and paper. I phoned home, got someone to go into our house and get the info. Gave the details back to yer boy and he headed up to Olive.

In the meantime, I got a free bag of Hunky Dorys as Dara O Briain, Bertie Ahern, Eoin Mulligan and Conor McManus dandered by us.

Yer boy arrives back 5 minutes later with "re-issued tickets".

So, might be worth taking your ticket details down on your phone or something, incase you lose your ticket en route or whatever.

Croke Park were dead on.

Who'd have thought it?

After the bannings etc suffered under the tyranny of gaaboard mods, I have managed to make it to 20000 posts.

Upara. Upapope. Aontroim abu. Uparossa.

Can anyone help?

After the U21 match between Tipp and Cork, they put up some forthcoming fixtures that they may or may not be showing.

One of them read:

Ard Macha v Sligeach

Peil na mban, I think.

Maith sibh TG4.

General discussion / Weekend Madness planned for GAABoard!
« on: May 13, 2011, 11:30:17 AM »
My sources are telling me that plans are in place for a weekend of madness on GAABOARD.COM/BOARD.

With the board moderators distracted all weekend with the website's inaugural charity golf classic, some of the nutters on the site are expected to have a free run of kicking the virtual shite out of other site users.

The plan is to then delete their posts before the mods return, leaving no sign that anything untoward has occurred.

Aiteannach is burning everywhere. Divis mountain, Omagh, the Mournes.

An Clochán Liath is getting hammered. They are lifting water from Loch an Iúir and dropping it from helicopters.

'Tis the end of the world.

Not filling it in.

How long will I be locked up for?

There are many GAA clubs with the name Clan na nGael. I reckon that's wrong and it should indeed be Clanna Gael.

In Séamus Ó Grianna's much sought after book "Rann na Feirste":

"Ní tháinig aon duine de Chlanna Gaedheal féin ann go dtí gur fheall Eachdhruim s a' Bhóinn agus nach rabh áit chomhnuidhe ar bith i ndán do na Gaedhil acht na sgreabáin a ba bhoichte sa tír.

Lth 1.

I'm with Séamus Ó Grianna.

Is there anyway that the censorship can be addressed on here?

I recently tried to write the Irish word C u í (meaning appropriate) and got Cuí.

Oh aye, let Sidelinekick back on too.
