Those domains were coralled by the Leinster council about 6 years ago. Nothing to do with anyone in Westmeath. The Longford website got the next generation address from the Leinster council:

So - I'd scale back your score there a tad.

I would give it 1

How in God's name does it even merit 1?  :o

Have vouchers in the program for each game with some classa ticket number like, say LD 250307 1256 (meaning the purchaser bought a program at a Longford home game on 25 Mar 07 and he was number 1256)

Each county than gets 100 All Ireland football tickets that it can then draw out the numbers and offer the program holder the choice to buy 2 AI tickets. If an away supporter wins then too bad - that's the luck of the draw.

Or something like that. Idea probably would need fine tuning.

I think Longford's finest, Eugene Murtagh, led the way on this one.

6 month's ban 2 years ago for referee abuse.

He's back reffing alll the same now  ::)

Wrong there Sean3

Gaelic Sunday was held cos the RIC were introducing a licence system in that before a gaelic game could take place anywhere at any time formal permission had to be sought and a licence issued by the local RIC station.

Rightly (although I think the Church did not support the GAA here) the GAA said 'feck that' and ordered all GAA clubs to have a match on Gaelic Sunday in Aug 1918 without the licence.

The propsal was quietly dropped.  The rest is history

1971 - the 'Ban' on GAA members attending foreign games is lifted

GAA Discussion / At What age did you peak as a Footballer/Hurler?

For me it was minor. Won a rake of hurling schoolboy/U14/juvenile and minor hurling medals (easy enough in Longford) but hit the payload in 1984 with a minor football championship medal ( as last sub  :-\ )

Played one senior football game for my beloved Mostrim in 1984 agin Coyningham Rd Bus Garage who were in the town on the piss and were up for a challenge.

Also played on Nov 1 1984 when all GAA clubs in Ireland celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the GAA. (For the record Wolfe Tones (us) played Clonguish)

So - what was/is your peak of achievement?

I reckon on a scale on 1-10 I'm at 1!

Totally unrelated but I see Crayonman has now been published  :-\

Although in fairness his pictures have never reached the dizzying heights of his, eh, prose!

Four home games for Skelly. Hopefully we won't see a whinge from him in 2007.

"would you hurry up with the kickout goalie"

Longford pa blurts into life at the end of a Nat League Game as the opposition goalie takes his time with minutes to go.
