Counties are manufactured too - by the Normans and English.
For example Ballyfarnon has nothing in common with Ballyforan except being within the lines drawn on a map by some Norman back in the 1200s.
However they're embedded in us now and from a GAA viewpoint have been there since the beginning.
However the question arises are Counties the best option any more for administering GAA affairs or for fielding representative teams?
Roscommon is a Tudor era construct + ballagh when they moved - athlone and ballinasloe when  they moved

Is there many on here involved with club nurseries? How have ye handled the return to play with this group? Are parents allowed to hand around?
They actually have to stay
They complete the health questionnaire for the child so they must accompany them onto the pitch. We get them to hold the child's bottle and stat along the fence or sideline
It's up to them to keep 2m between themselves and other parents

Apart from the scenery out from dingle, I actually don't like it as a town.
It might be better this year with less yanks floating about

West cork is beautiful.
With all the peninsulas you could easily do 5/6 days there

It's up to the individual.

Personally, my take is that until we are sure we are on top of this virus on this island, no one should be taking the luxury of a holiday abroad. But that's just my take, as the virus is very much in the infancy of being understood. The opposite view is just as valid in other eyes.

I want my mother to enjoy her remaining years not shielding. She is and will continue to until she's sure she won't be in danger. Again, that's her call. For that to happen I want airports under serious scrutiny with testing but sure even that is unreliable.

Everyone's view on this is valid and no one is correct. You just make a call and judge it on your instinct.

I don't buy into the whole...i've worked hard for this. My da worked 20 times as hard as I did and never felt the need for a foreign holiday. And there are many who feel the opposite...relaxing in the sun is a nice reward.

But again, no one is correct in their stance on this. You have a view, that's it.

However, anyone who uses the word staycation should be shot.

All very easy when you've been off on holidays since March. You're probably holidayed out at this stage.

Would you like a wee tickle? I'd hug you only I'm not a hugger and it's probably inappropriate right now.

I'll be holidaying in Ireland and later on in the year I'll be holidaying abroad. And I'll do it all with a big smile on my face.

I wont holiday in Ireland - not a penny will I give to the rip off merchants.

If the virus subsides/weakens and it is safe to do so I will holiday abroad at the end of the year
You can get great value for self catering in Ireland if you know where to look
6 of us  are heading down to Kerry for a week tomorrow, we booked a  4 bedroom house for the week on Homeaway ,it was very reasonable and touch wood its as good as the reviews it  received on the site .
Enjoy, and spend plenty of money!
Too many doom merchants about Irish holidays

I've done both foreign and self catering in Ireland and all holidays are enjoyable

Top of the charts

Just bantz though, la

The rest of the premier league have been poor this season though.

Surely the Everton v Leicester game cannot go ahead with the lockdown being imposed on that city?

No more P Flynn type roads for Mayo...
Or grants for Prenty Vanity projects.
East and South is where it's at :-\
Where the numbers are. Cork elects as many TDs as Connacht while Dublin elects over twice as many.

Sure they know the westerners won't mind and will vote for them anyway. They are like bet dogs
Too many independents west of Shannon

best team in the league this season, no doubt

From a purely selfish point of view this announcement today of bringing forward the easing of restrictions is a positive. We need some form of social outlet after what has been a suffocating time for most people. However I canít help but feel that it is a reaction to sustained heavy criticism from some media commentators such as Colm OíRourke and I really hope that we donít have to tighten restrictions again before the season is out. Huge onus is now being put onto a lot of unpaid volunteers to assist with planning and implementation of the new measures and the cabal of paid coaches and media hacks who led the charge for the quick return to play will be happy that the till is now turning again.
We can barely get one coach to take a team  never mind all these other helpers now needed
