GAA Discussion / Re: Should the GAABOARD Shut Down
« on: February 20, 2020, 09:29:39 AM »
These former players (incl GPA) see themselves as more important than the rest of our GAA community. Donaghys remarks are just more of the same.. he was probably asked about Caroline Fleck thing in a GAA context, and instead of giving an intelligent analysis he jumps at censorship and denying the ordinary man a voice (Ridiculous and ill informed response). Only high profile people like him are worthy of comment via the media?

The issue is how people behave, not the fact that there are platforms to give the ordinary man a voice. The day these platforms are shut down will be a sad day for free speech.

Good man, thanks.
Where do you find that info? How do you know which games are televised?

Anyone know what games are on TV this weekend?

Excuse my ignorance but what, precisely, is the delay on Casement getting built? I know there were planning problems and objections from residents but how long does it take to resolve and/or revise plans?? This delay is nothing short of an utter disgrace and shocking!

Stalemate usually comes from incompetence. Is that the problem here?

GAA Discussion / Re: Paddy Heaney of the irish news!

If we were expecting Paddy's new column to be like his old one then we are sorely disappointed.

The IN will be pissed off as they obviously hoped the arrest their drop in sales by taking Paddy back (his old pieces were really good).

The two latest pieces will do nothing to help sales as they are dire

Agree. The stuff I read the other day would put people off buying it. It was a blatant advertisement for his own gym. As for the love letter to Rory Gallagher? Another blatant business development tactic. The whole thing was embarrassing for the man.

I rarely read the Irish News but happened to read a copy today. Heaney is a good writer but his article today is a glorified advert for his gym business in Maghera. His sucking up to Rory Gallagher was pathetic and OTT and again clear that its another business move as his gym will be used by Derry players.

Call me cynical but Heaney would appear to be back writing to enhance his own business!

GAA Discussion / Re: Sigerson 2019

I can honestly say I have never seen such poor coverage for Sigerson. I had to look up to see who were in the semi finals and struggled to find it. The HE GAA committee do not deliver when it comes to PR or coverage.

A lot of talk about Sigerson recently with fixture clashes. The ONLY solution is to move it to pre Christmas and play it off quickly through December or else kill the whole thing off cos this year was an absolute joke.

PŠdraic Joyce sounds confident in his first interview as Galway senior manager.

Quote
"A successful year one would be to start off winning the FBD league and then go on and win the National league, and then the All-Ireland. Thatís our aim Ė thatís what we are aiming for straight away,"

"It might sound far-fetched to a lot of people. Iím not saying we are going to win the All-Ireland in two or three yearsí time, we are training for the 30th of August next year. Thatís when the final is on, thatís when we are training for. And if we donít do that, I would see it as disappointment."


The words of a VERY inexperienced manager! Silly comment which will haunt him.

Heard that Donie Buckley might be on the ticket with of the men been interviewed for the Galway job.

That would be odd. He was years away from Kerry before landing back with his native county. He'd hardly leave them after one year.

The only possible ticket he could be on is Liam Kearns I imagine. Can't see it though.

Is Rochford completely out of the running? I know he is with Donegal but I'd have thought he would be an obvious choice given his knowledge of Connacht football

Played 4 or 5 games with Crosserlough. He left in the summer and returned to St Brigids for championship.

He played Sigerson with Sligo It also.won 1 or 2 Sigersons with them

Jesus he loves coaching. Who's he managing next year? Antrim? Laois? Surely it's only a matter of time till he picks up the International rules reigns? Will he cross codes like Jim before him, Finn Harps perhaps?

Yeah he loves the oul "coaching" (money!) alright. Seriously though, is there ANY other man in Ireland who has played for 4 different irish clubs? Wouldn't you be embarrassed after the second one!

Heard a good one tonight about Rory Gallagher.

He has played for 4 different clubs in Ireland and 3 in USA and has played for 2 different counties also. He has coached 10+ different clubs, mostly short term and Derry is his 3rd different county to manage in space of 3yrs.

Has there ever been a greater journey man in the history of the GAA!

I'm hearing Tony McEntee is a shoe-in in Monaghan. I'd guess Monaghan people would be happy with that?

Sligo going all out for 2020. A great coup getting Taylor on for another year afetr his 100% record this year.
Massive statement of Intent by our County Board. ;D

I feel depressed. Taylor was quoted in the media recently that he was "just getting started". I would be very concerned about where he could take us
