Why is the O'Byrne Cup final in a home venue for Dublin?

It should be played in a neutral venue like Croke Park.

Anyone know if eir sport is available on Virgin?

Unfortunately not.

Good deal with EIR if you have your mobile with them, get internet/TV then cheapish for first 6 months, EIR Sport and BT come with package, you can add Sky.

SKY Now TV is good for me as I only wait till the summer to get it in for Champo, then cancel it at no cost, usually a few deals floating throughout the year . e.g. 2 months for 1 etc.

4 different channels now to watch GAA, 2 you have to pay for, good or Bad, RTE will be showing some same games as EIR, whats the point?

Divide the 1.3m population colossus into 4 County teams.

Dublin males 18-33 that play senior Gaelic football you mean.

Another Dublin thread.

One thing that will never happen is a Dublin split.

Just like we never thought we'd see the second chance back door in Gaelic Football or Hurling.

Just like we though we'd never see group stages in the Football Championship.

Just like we thought we'd never see Soccer or Rugby in Croke Park.

Just like we thought we'd never hear God Save the Queen in Croke Park.

Just like we never thought in 2004 that there would be only one other winner of a Leinster title in the next 14 years.

Dublin will be spit. It's inevitable! Money rules the GAA and this is the only way to keep the coffers filled!

The great Mayo support contribute a lot to the coffers too!

Maybe your right actually, but cant see it happening within the next 20 years, would have to be phased in.

Thanks to all for the good wishes  :)

Well done to you sir, enjoy.

I am sorry that other posters are ruining the thread with Anti-Dublin bias.

Best of luck in the semi.

Well done Mullinaghta, brilliant achievement.  Who needs population and resources....

You'll probably come on here in 5 years time after someone eventually beats Dublin and say the same thing. You really are some clown.

Thanks for the insult. Appreciate it.

Something called Gest.

And just for your information, there is more to the GAA than the Dublin senior footballers, its only a small part of it, so take a breath man and chill.

Jeez some shower of dry balls on here 😂. If you think this is reflective of the substance abuse problems in this country then don’t go anywhere near the outside of many bars/nitcubs any Saturday night!  Lads letting off some steam after busting their bollix for months....good on them I say and I just wish I still was where they are now as it’s gone in a blink of an eye.

100% correct, deserve to let lose for a couple of days, a once in a life time achievement for some, every team and club do it and all levels and codes, too many PC brigade in the modern era giving out, what next.

 Did you go to the Mayo gaa team dinner in the Shelbourne hotel in DUBLIN last week? It's not like you had to spend much money following the team this summer

Doubt you had to spend much either....ya know seen as ye get more home games than everyone else

It's expensive following the dubs. They always reach the finals in league All Ireland and then the added expense of celebrating All Irelands

Always? No they don't.

You have more or less admitted in writing that you've jumped on the bandwagon.

Well in the last 4 years it's been league final and All Ireland final. I didn't realise when you talk about current spending you expected Dublin fans to go back 5 years.

And being a dual fan, its quite expensive, plenty of days out and Dublin is one of the most expensive Cities in the world. I always spend a few bob on matches home or away.

This thread still going, latest gripe I( of course from a Mayo fan) only one Dublin player trials for Aussie Rules.

Couldn't make it up...

 :D

Not according to the players who actually play the game.

https://www.dublinlive.ie/sport/gpa-want-talks-gaa-over-15470754

In terms of most disruptive rule changes, the GPA recently carried out a survey from which it emerged that 96% of those polled were against the restriction on the handpass, with 54% in favour of the mark.

And it is also my belief, for all the Dublin haters out there etc, this rule will only strengthen Dublin as they are probably the best kick passing team in the country. They will figure it out.




13
Sorry it this was posted before, but GPA survey with players, 96% appose the new hand pass rule.

Its going to ruin the game.

14
Its going to be lowest scoring league of the modern era, and the dullest.

A bad bad call to proceed with this rule.

Well done  Mullinalaghta St. Columba's, great achievement.

Just shows what you can do with minimum player base and resources.
