GAA Discussion / Championship 2016
« on: April 26, 2016, 08:59:05 PM »
It starts next Sunday at 9pm Irish time with the Community Service obligation in Gaelic Park New York and will, barring a replay, end on 18th September.
A few predictions to give ye all a good laugh ;D

Connacht -
We play NY followed by Leitrim, winners v Sligo
Rhus play London followed by Galway. We shpuld fulfil our potential and reach the Connacht final where I wouldn't be surprised to see us face Galway but still expect the Rhus to be there and to put us to the sword.

Leinster -
Only question here is who loses to Dublin in the Final - Wexford v Kildare, winners v Longford/Offaly or Westmeath. I expect our nice neighbours from Longford to come through and then we'll have the equivalent of a slow bicycle race to try and avoid Dublin. Lillies to have that dubious honour.

Munster - Cork v Tipp/Waterford - will be Tipp and Cork to advance to play Kerry  who will have beaten Clare ( bt Limerick).
On the law of averages must be Cork's turn to win this so Cork it is.

Ulster -
Fermanagh to beat Antrim and lose to Donegal v Monaghan who will have beaten Down.
Tyrone to beat Derry and beat Cavan who will have beaten Armagh.
Tyrone to win final.

Round 4
Ros and Kerry v 3A winners
Donegal and Kildare v 3B winners

Qtr Finals
Mayowestros v Kerry
Ros v Cork
Dublin v Donegal
Tyrone v 4B winner ( who will have beaten Kildare)

Semis
Cork v Dublin
Kerry v Tyrone

Final Dublin to beat Tyrone

General discussion / Republic of Ireland
« on: April 18, 2016, 08:24:04 PM »
I believe the 26 Cos officially became a Republic and also left the British "Commonwealth" on 18th April 1949.

PS it stopped being the " Free State" 11 or 12 years previously.

GAA Discussion / New York v Ros 1st May.
« on: April 11, 2016, 08:34:59 AM »
The League is done and dusted, Division 1 status secured for 2017 and the last3 games have shown up our frailties.
Time to turn eyes on the real World but first we have to do our Community Service to the semi official twilight GAA world of NY plus the free holiday for the Connacht blazers.
First about 10 days rest for those who soldiered right through the NFL and a load of training for those who missed a lot of it.
Then get this nonsense game out of the way and avoid injury.

General discussion / End of the Free State.
« on: December 29, 2015, 02:16:26 PM »
For the benefit of certain 6 Co. posters ----
Today marks the 78th anniversary of the abolition of the "Irish Free State" as the new Bunreacht na hÉireann came into effect at midnight.
This renamed the State "Eire, or in the English language Ireland".

Do try and get up to date buicìns ;)

GAA Discussion / Possible Rule changes

This will upset a few of the "everything is grand " bucks here  ;D

Having watched the highlights of Club Finals on GAA 2015 last night one thing I think they need to look at  is the 2 handed push/throw goals. 2 were scored last night where balls were handpassed across to an unmarked chap and in both cases they basically controlled/half caught the ball in their 2 hands before pushing it into the net using both hands.

The Irish International Rules Team are hosting an open Training Session in the Connacht GAA Centre tomorrow at 7.30pm & on Saturday at 10.30 and all are invited to attend.


Once again the team will be managed by Roscommon native Paul Earley and the event is a good opportunity for supporters to see the players ahead of next month's big game against Australia in Perth.

I always knew the PrentyArena would have its uses  :)

Now Jinxy etc can have a month or 6 weeks to see whi can run this thingy down the most. ;D
