RIP Eamon

Will be remembered around Meath for being a great player on a great team that put us to the sword. Thereís a lot of respect for that team here even if ye broke our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers with his family and friends.

I expect weíll be facing a Paul Galvin managed Wexford in the Qtr and if weíre building on where we left off last year we should win that.

GAA properties raided by the gardai in Limerick apparently. Officials and players supposedly involved in corruption.

GAA Discussion / Re: Would you be in favour of a second tier?

Yeah. I donít see how this helps move things towards a more open and competitive championship to be honest. Surely 2 tiers should be seen as a temporary situation till we can get teams a more equal footing. But Iím not sure it helps in achieving that goal.

I think the GAA should have always be trying to level the playing field as much as possible by making sure counties like Leitrim arenít stuck for resources that the top teams have. Invest more in the lower ranked counties than the top. You canít solve population differences but there are disparities that can be. Dublin, Kerry, Mayo and a few others donít need as much help from headquarters as others do. The NFL have their heads screwed on in this regard in terms of giving the lowest team a leg up in the draft. Obviously they canít help a team if theyíre coached and owned by fools.

I donít understand the ill will towards the team. Thereís plenty of support for the team even if it is a bit bandwagon, which I would include myself but itís far from fabricated. Perhaps Iím spared the hype as I donít watch or listen to Rte or read mainstream newspapers but that has nothing to do with the players. All that said you cannot be anything but happy for Japan. They played much better than us for about 70% of the game.

The lads looked wrecked at half time whereas the Japanese team jogged into the dressing room. Looked like a losing team even though we were up by 3.

Cian McBride going for trials. Nash already gone and looking permanent now. So much for closing the gap in Leinster.

Joe Stafford of Cavan in 1943
John Donnellan of Galway and the brothers Derry O'Shea and John 'Thorny' O'Shea of Kerry in 1965
Charlie Nelligan of Kerry in 1978,
PŠidŪ ” Sť of Kerry in 1979,
Brian Mullins, Kieran Duff, Ray Hazley of Dublin and TomŠs Tierney of Galway in 1983,

That's the first 10...

Gerry McEntee of Meath in the 1988 replay,
Tony Davis of Cork in 1993,
Charlie Redmond of Dublin in 1995,
Liam McHale of Mayo and Colm Coyle of Meath in the 1996 replay,
Nigel Nestor of Meath in 2001,
Diarmuid Marsden of Armagh in 2003,
John Small of Dublin and Donal Vaughan of Mayo in 2017, and
John Small of Dublin again in 2018.

10 more, up to 20...

21...Jonny Cooper of Dublin in 2019 drawn game.

Dublin lead the way with 7, Kerry have 4, Meath 3, Galway and Mayo 2 each, Cavan, Cork and Armagh 1 each.

Iíd say weíre top of the table based on no. sending off per final appearance. Iím sure if we got to a few more finals we might Ďimproveí those numbers.

Have stuck money on Dublin to win by 7 to 9 points at 4/1. Fear it could be more though.

I didnít think the majority of the Yerra-tales would be coming out of Dublin!

Would ye stop. Dublin will win comfortably enough.

I thought it was a fair shoulder (at least it would have been before we had high definition tv and cameras everywhere!)

Living abroad the McGregor phenomenon has largely passed me by thankfully. I used to think his antics were merely promotional but this isnít the behavior of someone who really should be secure enough in life to be above this sort of carry on. He seems quite petty and self absorbed. Soon enough heíll be out of his own with only a few leeches for a bit of company unless he sorts himself out.

Galleon come back to play ď5-in-a-rowĒ

Top 4 = semifinalists obviously.
