Laois / Re: Fr Manning Cup 2018
« on: November 12, 2018, 11:42:10 AM »
Unfortunately they lost by 4 points.

They were down 11 points at half time. There was a blinding sun and stiff breeze n the first half which Laois played into
of course in the second half the sun went in and the wind died down. That's the way it works out.

Offaly broke through very easy through midfield in the first half and played the better football and have some very talented individual players.
Laois had the opportunity in the second half to pull closer if not go in front but a number of wides and also with some cynical fouling by Offaly
in the later stages of the game prevented goal opportunities. From a positive point of view they played much better in the second half  and if they
had matched that in the First half the result would have been different. It was a good opportunity to look at various players at various positions
in a tournament environment so whats not to find encouraging about that.


       
Who played well for Offaly?
I wasnít at it but I saw a picture of the program so would know by the numbers. Thanks

I know that from ordering my own club gear from OíNeillís that theyíre an absolute disaster. Ordered a top, when I got it, the secondary colour was incorrect.
Also our club has a very generous sponsor whose only request is that his companyís logo be on all gear. It is on the site, but when I ordered gear it came without the logo. I sent them back straight away. Theyíre so lazy, probably trying to save a few cent on thread.

Abuse is ok as long as it's directed at Fenians😡


Seriously though - I understand anti-Irish abuse is a crime in the UK. Surely the perpetrators should be easily identifiable in a soccer stadium and dealt with appropriately?

Well let's consider this.....John Taylor calls Varadkar.....'typical Indian'.....nothing happens
Sponsored burning of effigies and anything remotely Nationalist every year.....nothing happens
Sectarian abuse and death threats to McClean and Lennon.....nothing happens
Don't forget that up until recently the Head of State couldn't marry a Catholic.....they can now....but they themselves can't be a Catholic........now imagine if instead of Catholic it was Jew or Protestant or Muslim. You couldn't make it up but now you know why the Tories and DUP are made for each other.

I don't think the UK monarch could be Jewish or Muslim, or anything other than Church of England.  The monarch is head of the Church of England, so presumably has to be part of that religion in order to be able to function in that capacity.  I don't think that particular policy is anti-Catholic as such.  Any more than saying that a Presbyterian couldn't be pope.

Up until relatively recently...2011 I think....the head of state could NOT marry a Catholic......if that's not anti- Catholic then I don't know what is in your world.

Wasnít there a thing that the PM couldnít be Catholic either? (Itís more than likely changed since, but still)

I know that thereís a few on here from Crossmaglen. Saw Aaron Kernan pictured outside a Bar One shop, with the Armagh senior club championship cup. Iím aware that Bar One is still displayed on their jerseys. Why havenít Crossmaglen been reprimanded yet?

Aaron was merely walking on the street with the cup and someone photographed him.
Sure someone from Cross has that cup most of the time.

Apart from the fact that he mentioned that they sponsored Crossmaglen for 11 years, while they won 8 Armaghís, 5 Ulsterís and 2 all-Irelandís.

Also I note that their race night is sponsored by Bar One.

It doesn't come into effect until 2019.
I thought that it came into effect this year because I noticed that bookmakersí ad boards were taken down in numerous club grounds in OY.

Clonbur will represent Galway in the Connacht junior club competition.
They play Corofins second team in the county final and go onto Connacht regardless as Corofin can't play in it.

Did Clonbur not play in an All Ireland junior a few years ago too?
They did. Canít remember if they won or not.
