GAA Discussion / Re: Half Parishes

Daingean in Offaly has 4 half parish . Daingean , ballyconmmon kilclonfert and Cappincur thought does the main parish count as a half parish?

the  main difference between a Parish and half parish team is players from the Parish can play for any of the teams

Why do GAA players have to announce retirement statements ?

Never understand this . It's not  a professional game.

probably as a mark of respect to all their supporters who otherwise would be wondering where they are or whether or not they were just dropped. and give them an opportunity to thank all the people who have helped them on the way
that or rampant egomania . probably the 1st

Andy Moran reckons that Mayo need to concentrate on the FBD, that’s not breaking it down into silly stuff. That’s being serious, Mayo haven’t won a trophy for a long time he said.

That is breaking it down to silly stuff. Dads Army will have little appetite for picking up unwanted injuries on the dodgy pitch days of January.
plenty to stand in for them.
im hoping for reape and ryan o Donohue in particular I think they'll give it a right go this year

Floodlit all weather pitches are needed in the West and midlands

To play club games and school games all year
Most clubs and counties cannot afford to put in those sort of facilities

Why all weather. If they were grass and done properly they wouldnt need to be Astro. Astro is not good for GAA in my opinion.
No cutting
Less maintenance
No mud

Play basketball then.
You can play 3 schools games in a day on a 3G pitch
Or colleges games or primary school blitzes.
In any weather
That is why they are useful

Instead of wasting money on Fenway classics and sending Gaelic footballs out to africa we need to invest in facilities for the grassroots.

Did the fenway classic lose momey  I thought it made a profit?

What is the considered opinion
Was it a white Elephant waste of money used only by Mayo teams? ir is hard to kno how everyone survived before it existed?

I remember being here in the old days - back in 2001 when Hardy used to be Hardyarse.


was that before or after the fiddler?

Is any Mayo man as upset as a Roscommon man about young Akram young lad.... on my limited viewing saw nithing to show he was county senior material.....

Limited viewing would be the best description you could put on yourself alright.

Back in your corner.

Ignoring the petulant prepubescent,
Calling mayomen as opposed to the  Sufferus..... is Akram non selection a scandal
As a Ballagh Mayo man I would say no is the answer. Sharoize is a talent but he still needs to work on parts of his game. He’s really unlucky that he’s in a line of the team that is so strong. If he works on his skills and develops more physically then I think he’ll be looked at again.
Akram seemed to have got a lot broader this years and playing more aggressively . looks more like an old style corner back now than a flying wing back

What a bluffer this man is. The James Horan show is well and truly back. 100 players trialed but what’s the odds 13 of the established players start in the first big championship test? I’ll come back to this post in July. Horan has the best Mayo panel ever and messed up. Why does he have to give a running commentary about what’s going on in mayo football?
well if he et 2 new player that ok of a return .

any word on a final panel apart from ah refs version?

tiers are a good idea bit as Parkinson says your tier must be your aim from the beginning of the year and not a consolation prize . if you win it you then go up .
I would  not like to see more than 3 tiers .  one for the vey weak counties Kilkenny limerick wicklow roscommon  and the like . one for the top 8 to 10  and the rest in the middle . they don't all have to be of equal size .
like a peoper super 98 with every one playing every one or home and away games too increase familiarity

and the wedge thickens
now Liverpool are looking to push their brand on the back of Sean cox  by having a match in Croker.
a far more worthy case but  if Liverpool feel guilt over what happened to Sean cox they should cover his medical bill and not use him as a promotional tool

You said one of it's principles was not to enrich individuals. That's not strictly true.

Maybe check what enrichment means: making people rich.
Like Ed Sheerin? Garth Brookes? Westlife?
not members of the association , not competitors of the GAA indeed not sports men at all
complete red herring

Why is the GAA held to such different standard to other gaes just saw highlight from munsters brawl last weekend . 2 massive punch up not a peep from anywhere.
is it tat thuggery is so ingrained in Rigby that no one even notices it any more?

Any member's of the Munster management chin a player on the blind side? Any Munster players jump the fence?
List the last few massive punch ups in Rugby you've seen prior to last weekend.  Do rugby players / management usually take their punishment and move on?
why wouldn't they no one was suspended its not like anyone put his foot over the offside line ,

heres a selection of the jolly japes you rugger folk get up to

or the legal violence that caused the premature retirements in 2018 alone of
sam wharbuton
Christian wade
Joe Marler
tim visser
james heaslip
Bryan Habana

General discussion / Re: Muslim gangs abusing children in England

Much to respond to there Iceman.

No, I wouldn't want my family or myself living in a middle eastern society. It has nothing to do with Islam in isolation - it's the combination of the society that I have no interest in. I wouldn't want us living in an Asian culture either necessarily

So long as you continue to hold this view below - I have to argue you are straying into being morally crooked as opposed to straight. That is an incredibly large, and ignorant brush stroke (no matter how much you claim to know about Islam - which I won't argue could be more than me).

Islam is dangerous. True Islam is dangerous. I don't think it has a place in a functioning, peaceful western society.

You have always been devoted to the Catholic Church - what does your religion and your religious leader state about Islam? I doubt very much the Pope would let you slide with the above.

Equating sexual with any religion or race is just stupid .
some men rape women
some men rape children
some men rape other men
some Roscommon men rape sheep

the men are TV producers Priests , Journalists, Immans , social workers , scout leader gaa coaches swin coaches soccer coaches , judges ETC
they are are catholic ,prod ,Jew ,atheist, muslim hindu humanist, animist  ETC
they live in Ireland England usa Pakistan india Russian japan ETC

The closet thing to a common factor is the 95% of the time it is men, We have set moral standard we cant live by but for the sake of civilization all we can do is keep trying
now let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone
