By the way Limerick were denied a 65 at the end of the match - the sliothar definitely hit off the Kilkenny man’s hurl and went out.

Limerick lost by a point after hitting 15 wides and will be sore about this defeat but you just have to credit Kilkenny with putting in a massive shift and riding their luck. Kilkenny just don’t do lying down.

John Horan's call for a second tier cannot be resisted. It's just a matter of compensating the provincial councils for any loss of revenue suffered by them.

2016 and getting beaten shows you the firepower / running power / decision making of the Donegal team.

Kerry and Donegal super 8 game is in Croke Park ? Should be interesting tussle.

Meath got a harsh lesson. Dublin on a different planet to the rest.

9 in a row Leinsters and counting.

Great article above

He was indeed blunt and direct - great attributes.

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned....
Then again it's "Only a third world place"

RIP to all the victims.
Will any Billionaires offer aid???

A few posts on the subject. RIP to all the victims.

A Danish billionaire lost 3 out of his 4 kids in the attack. 8 billion he’s worth allegedly.

It certainly does take an extraordinary type of evil to go into a church / mosque and kill innocent people with the church packed full of children and worshippers.

The news that government ministers had prior knowledge of the attack is sickening.

On the mouth of Christmas the general public get the news that the scheme has overrun by many millions and that Croke Park are going to sort it but that it’s going to take many years to run it around.

Surely 18 months after the place opened it was apparent that the overall cost was way in excess of the contract price and this can’t be news to the inner circle so why the secrecy ?.

Was in gym today in Westpark  Tallaght and Tom Parsons was doing a bit of gym work. Hopefully be back in action next year.

It would be great to see alright but his injury was brutal. Getting back to playing any sort of ball will be incredible. Long road ahead for him.

GAA Discussion / Re: Kildare v Mayo AI Qualifier Round 3
« on: June 27, 2018, 10:31:53 AM »
It was in the year of eighteen, in the lovely month of Jan
The Lily whites were promoted and the excitement it was grand
But seven games on the trot they were f**king traumatic ,
and relegation when it came sure it was automatic

The championship start was not ideal, Kildare fragile you know
And who came out of the draw itself but WTF Carlow
And Horse Lawlor he did get the ball and had loads of time to choose
And once he set his sights on goal sure the Lilies could only lose

And KCR they lost the plot, sure the Carlow boys went mad
While on KFM across the county the mood was very sad
The rasta midgets had had their day, their victory was tremenjus
But the Flourbags had to lick their wounds and start praying the Angelus.
 
This was worse than an embarrassment it was biblical in scope
And on the board Kuwabate and Donnellys had surrendered all their hope
O’Neill was f**king hopeless and his tactics were so poor
What was he doing managing the Lilies, the useless clueless hoor
 
And outsiders they did shake the head and ask all the questions
All that money in Kildare and the team is only messin’
And Newbridge it is still a kip with no corporate suites to offer
And Meath are just as bad and the 2 counties have nothing in the coffer

But life is about soldiering on and the qualifiers offer redemption
Even if the Lilies were only looking at a losing series extension
At least it’s not the Leinster championship with the Dubs , that awful load
You can win a few matches with a bit of luck and go further down the road

In Derry the opposition was hard enough to beat
The backs and forwards had to work together in the heat
This was a novelty after all the losing- it was hard to stay on task
But they kept the engine running and that’s all anyone could ever ask.
 
Next up the Larries in their home place- the fans had to shell out
They had beaten Meath you see and were in with a good shout
But the flourbags got the oul mojo going it was a decent oul feeling
An open road and enough horsepower to leave the Larries reeling

So now onto Round 3 and hopefully deeper into July
A draw like Clare at home it would be surely worth a try
A three game winning streak is better than playing cat
And a Saturday evening in the town with pints you could well get used to that

Ah well some of the lads and lassies  had never been arsed watching the Lilies at home before.
It would be the first time Geraldine would have seen the forwards score.
And before they heard the draw, they knew they’d play the same
So they all agreed that Newbridge was the place to play the game.

But the hoors above in Dublin they had a fella called McGill
And he f**king ordered the Lilies to play in Dublin
The county it was outraged  ONeill would take no crap
And Kildare defied the HQ and all attempts at a bitchslap.

So CP rolled out some big guns and the biggest , Health and Safety
They wanted all the Kildare fans to be drinking in the Big Tree
But Kildare decided otherwise, they had the gander going
And Croke Park ran out of ammunition and the public started groaning

And the Super 8s are the golden goose and the timing is essential
But if Kildare go down the legal route delays will be unmissable
The CLG head are in a bind they don’t know what to do
The clock is ticking as we speak this is a huge issue

So Kildare have had a change of fate even if they lose on Sat
Because  the energy unleashed you cannot defend against that
And CLG, the useless hoors, they really need some insight
You cannot force the Lilies into something  that is shite.


So Horse Lawlor’s goal was not the end, it was not the end at all
The Kildare lads got time to fight both on and off the ball
They discovered balls they had all over the county of Kildare
And they united around a great oul line- Newbridge or nowhere


Any music to the great lyrics ?

Kildare's call.
