It was an unreal play but on some respects it was a free go. Game was not lost as it was going to overtime so it was a good percentage shot. Execution was great though and as has been said the high arc to get it in was essential. The reality is that given the closeness of many of these teams at this level this type of ‘clutch’ play is regular. Small margins and Leonard has been outstanding all the way this season.

Was class but a free go as you said....v different than a must make bucket when youre 2 down. Still. Class

Gutted as i like the 76ers

In Armagh, according to BBC.
I thought it might be in Windsor Park.

Its a supposed home game for us....Corrigan?

Will we score from play?
Will you care when we win?

That Louth & Wexford game seemed to be a cracker. Somebody should have told the commentator that. Was it computer generated?

Lol. The Robot

Booking a Xmas break with the Mrs, unfortunately she can’t do long haul flights. Have done Prague, Edinburgh which were very good at Xmas and also Dublin, Galway etc which are great but it is as cheap to head away somewhere. I was thinking of Bath in England, not a big fan of English food but am told Bath is a lovely place to go. Has any of you been there and would you recommend it?

Copenhagan at Christmas. Tivoli Gardens Winter Wonderland is awesome

Short flight from Dublin.

Where do you start?!

Too much fighting and not enough narrative I agree although I suppose it captured the chaos of war... Although when you know deep down the Night King will most likely be beaten you can get a bit fed up waitin for it to happen!

Loved that Arya killed  him

How in Gods name Jamie etc lived... Was a bit ridiculous... Sam and Brianne were on the deck more times than Neymar yet somehow survived

Very hard to see too

But unprecedented television

Holy fcuk lads,  would some of you wise to fcuk up...there are 3 dead darlings barely cold and you're having debates about blame and the like?  Honestly take a huge look at yourselves.  There is a pretty widespread Tyrone membership on here.  I am sure there are connections to people involved.  Temper things and let the dust settle.  There are no answers to this at this stage and some of you should get the fcuk off your high horses and have respect


Well said BCB1

agree 100%.


Horrific. Honestly believe the police didn't need to Go looking to blame someone prior to the funerals.

It's Not like a case where a robber might discard his ill gotten gains if not arrested immediately

It's made this tragedy into a pantomime

He has been dearrested now, what a shambles from the Police. Have they no compassion for the families of the kids?

A very serious issue has descended into farce.

Absolute f**king farce

Police shouldnt have touched this to next week after the funerals. The owner and other boy are not flight risks...families did not need this shite and people saying to them about the drugs arrest etc. Total rank amateur, insensitive, shite.

PSNI are poor as f**k at times. Very few bright minds in this part of the world want to grow up and be a cop...hence the distinct brainpower deficit in that organisation

The point I was making about the arrest is that it has to be necessary to meet a certain condition. I was speculating to a degree but I can’t think which of the conditions were likely to have necessitated an arrest. I would have thought anyone the police would have wanted to speak to would have attended voluntarily. If the suspected offence was manslaughter rather than corporate manslaughter then my thoughts might be somewhat different.

Should have been done voluntarily.

If arrested should've been done at 9am....not late in the afternoon when they knew fine well they wouldn't have been finished interviewing by night.... Meaning they had to sleep in an empty police cell.... All this while the evidence still isn't collected...... A major police incident room has only just been set up

This whole incident is tragic... Like a horror movie. In my opinion the police have jumped the gun

RIP to the poor teenagers, god help their families and all the ones who witnessed and are affected by it

We are all shocked and rattled by it

Did McKeever win an AI IFC title with Fr Rocks?

Yes brilliant so should Seamus Shannon get the Antrim senior hurling job as  he’s won intermediate hurling with Rossa and won Antrim championship as a player. More than McKeever

Why not?

Personally im in favour of a young coach. Id like to see John get a go

Those boys in their 30s are still unfortunatly our best players....still good enough to get us out of Div 4. Life gets in the way but would be nice to have at least a few of them to have assisted brjnging younger players on.

We lost 3 games by a point....if we had (to take 1 example) say Tomas McCann we may well have won all 3.

Would John McKeever have been more likely to cajole a Tomas out (or say he would be happy to work round his work and family schedule)....i dont know.

Are the current mgt team too rigid re attendance at everything......i dont know. 

Just disapointed as a fan that we went from a resurgence of sorts 10 yrs ago for a few years to the bottom. Those days in Clones, Tullamore and Newbridge were we suddenly had a proper county team. Besting Meath in Div 2 at Casement.

Kerry football fans are notoriously demanding re their team.  Here we dont have radio shows discussing our team or holding the mgt to account...we have about 5 of us who care on Gaaboard discussing it

edit: Just seen their 2nd to last score, how has McQuillan not noticed he's taken 16 steps.

The enforcement of this specific fundamental rule by referees, and Mc Quillan is far from unique here, is generally atrocious. How refs of the 'highest standard' don't have that 5-steps/5-seconds rule running subconsciously at all times escapes me.

At least 16. Ridiculous

The likes of Higgins & Moran really struggled tonight. Father Time is saying hello. Didn't have the legs. Disappointed in Dublin. Normally they are ruthless. Only for Hennelly it would have been a slaughter

Higgins did very well in scrambled defence. Andy did ok apart from product and legs had nothing to do with that. Higgins still has legs to spare and Andy was never about legs ever.

Totally agree. Some people haven't a clue
