Ah crap that's awful news. McKeever will be a massive loss. No Toner to step in for that position either.

Who's the best bet there now? Vernon?

Toner was on the bench and warmin up during the Down match so hopefully he's available

Benny why are you so against the opt-in scheme?
Can you not see how it will provide much more organs and so reduce waiting times and so save lives?

You don't even have to ring up and tell them you want to opt out. You can just tell your family to tell them when you die.

I'm aware more organs become available because of this. But like someone said earlier, his father would have to have been kept on life support for longer just to get his organs. It would've been tough for the fanily to do so.

If you're automatically opted in, and you die, then does your family really know your intentions? Maybe someone wasn't aware they were on the donor list, and their organs are taken anyway. Maybe they were against organ donation in the first place? OK, people know the score at the minute, but what about a few years away, when the hype has died down, and the opt-out thing is rarely mentioned?

I just think at least if someone has gone to the bother of registering to become a donor, then that is what they really wanted. This situation where the family can say no upon their death is putting unnecessary strain on an already grieving family.

I'd prefer to see the organ donation advertised properly. Opt in, you could save a life. Don't opt in, you're not a donor. Simple.

from what I understand at the minute the family still get the final say whether your on the register or not, is this wrong?

Paul Mersons 2nd book - How not to be a professional footballer is very good, pretty funny too.  goes into detail on all the messing about he got up too.

How much would it cost to submit plans for a field in the north and how much is the whole process likely to cost?

An outline application is £412
A full application is £823

£75 for building control application if your house is under 250 sq meters

depends where you're looking for, nijobfinder.co.uk is prob the best for the north

I thought the ref was very inconsistent throughout the game in terms of his punishment of too many steps. Ignored some whilst penalising players with men hanging out of him.

Consistency isn't one of his strengths: blowing up Mickey Murphy for minor encroachment onto the pitch for a sideline, yet letting a Kildare kick-out be collected without penalty within the semi-circle (stone cold free in).

Matthew Donnelly played well indeed, seems to be settling very assuredly into the grade.

I'm not sure thats a free anymore, seen it happen quite a lot recently without punishment.  Might've been done away with when the kickouts where changed

McKenna shouldn't be played in the full back line - very short on pace for that job.

Mc Kenna short on pace, don't know what games you have been attending DuffleKing.I firmly believe this will be Mc Kennas break through year... excellent defender & he can take a score

I dont know if its a lack of pace or not, but I dont think corner back is the best place for him.  I think he will develop into a great player, but I think that will be in the half back line not the full back one

banana, fat free strawberry yogurt, orange juice, couple of scoops of porridge oats and some milk makes a handy one for breakfast.  I got a hand blender too, 2 seconds under the tap and it clean.

Free taking from distance is really a thing from the past. The St Marys keeper took at least 5 or 6 free kicks against Armagh on Sunday. Some of them were no more than about 30 yards out. What the hell are forwards doing in training when they can't kick a point from 30 or 40 yards?!

It's time this was done away with. It eats up too much time. I'd say 5+ minutes was wasted with the keeper coming up to take frees. If a forward took that much time, the ball would have been thrown up.

He missed most of them too
