Double header Healy park next Saturday. So do clubs now get half the tickets they are currently getting?

Anyone got an answer to this? Surely the 400 max still applies even with double header ?

From what I can see all Weir, by doing this, wants to appease the transfer test kids/parents.

That'll work well when there is a rake of them or their teachers down with the virus by the time of the tests.

The problem is Sinn Fein have conceded the transfer debate to the unionists in exchange for justice being devolved therefore Weir has a free run at this...

Are schools going to be the only workplace where social distancing is going to be ignored?
Dangerous place to be !!

Why does social distancing not apply to children when they are in school but does after 3pm?
They can pick this virus up from ones in their bubble just as easy as from anyone outside it.

Need a petrol strimmer. For grass, weeds, briars mainly.

Any recommendations?

Make sure you buy a light one. Cheaper ones tend to be heavy and piss you off after a while.
Stihl are hard to beat

Paddy Russell disallowed Tyrone’s equalising point at the end of the 95 AIF because he thought it already was a draw at that stage.

It's all over the news ffs.

No it’s not.

It was on BBC breakfast on three separate occasions yesterday morning. It was on the news on Radio 2. It was on the Channel 4 News. It was in the Irish times, as well as both the Guardian and the Independent.

You watch a lot of news😀😀

Jim Bob if you think social distancing in shops and pubs will be in place in August you are mad. The 1 metre rule is in but you are mad if you think it will happen in pubs

I don’t think that !!!

You can’t have a situation where social distancing is going to be ignored in schools yet when children walk out through the school gates at the end of the school day will be subject to the same rules as everyone else.  If you are going to scrap social distancing for children then it has to apply in all circumstances , not just in school

Pat Spillane feels the GAA should consider removing the possibility of penalties from deciding Championship games later this year and introduce a golden score.

“A fella misses a penalty, an individual has just cost his county the All-Ireland title. I think the fairer system is, yes extra-time, but then golden score, first team to score wins. Collective responsibility in victory, collective responsibility in defeat. To lose an All-Ireland final with a missed penalty? I wouldn’t like to be that player heading back to the county."

Sometimes Spillane is correct.

I’d much prefer “next score wins” myself, but it doesn’t alleviate the situation Spillane is describing. Players are going to regularly miss the target under such conditions, and there will be some dreadful misses, and the ire of spectators will follow.

Added to that it potentially puts the winning and losing in a referees hands. Could you imagine losing an All Ireland to a very soft free or more than likely the ref not wanting to be the deciding factor and not giving a blatant free. Granted this could happen in the last moments of normal time too but in a golden score situation it would be magnified much more

Sure that’s the way it has always been..

Same in any job. There are lazy feckers being paid a lot of money in plenty of jobs.

I wouldn’t say Teachers get paid a lot of money

They did this month  :)
