Second Galway goal?  :o

Where you watching another game Seafoid? Haha
Thanks for the lift to the railway station. Just made it.
Great stadium Pearse and unlike Healy park good toilet facilities with actual hot water

Thought the Galway fans were a bit harsh towards Sean Cavanagh and Morgan
I think I dreamt it.
What I liked was what Kevin Walsh described in the indo

"If they get on top of you they can come in droves and run at you."

That is the essence of Galway football. It is nice to see it again.

I feel sorry for Mayo . They hafta win this year.

I don't even feel sorry for Galway anymore!  ;D
Mallacht Mhaoigh Eo. I was talking to  a fella at the match yesterday. He also thinks Galway will win Sam before Mayo.
That would be sickening considering all the effort Mayo have put in. Same number of all Irelands in 1952.....

That was the old line back in the '90's when we were knocking on the Door and ye were hanging off our coat tails. Ye, fair play to ye, got past us and showed us how it was done. And ye let us know and have doing it since. And sure why wouldn't ye! I'm afraid them days are no longer. You are without a connacht title for eight years. Ye have not been within a arses roar of us for 4 years now and taken some hidings. Sligo have had the better of ye a couple of times the last couple of years. Have ye won a game in Croker since 2001? Even the back door has been a disaster. Have ye beaten a decent side since 2001? How long are ye in Division 2 now? Feck, they say the first step to failure is trying and at the moment at least we are!
It's all about the future now. Who cares about connacht titles? When we get going again we'll stack them up.
We'll probably win an all Ireland in the next 5 years. I jusht wish Mayo could do it before that

So hard to see it at the moment Seaf. Going by yesterday, (though for obvious reasons I wasn't at it!), we need a heck of a lot of new defenders (2 at least in the FB line alone); still not decided on a goalie or kick-out strategy; midfield seems to have reached a ceiling in terms of performance and a powerhouse CHF required also. All these don't come overnight.

Gerry was doing some awful spluttering when he was trying to explain how FG were wrong ::)
Would be some craic if him and Kenny were debating Financial matters ;D

Enda doesn't do debates anymore does he?

Calls the shortest election campaign to minimise the amount of time his government can be questioned by the electorate.
Why is that?

Could it be that the election by law has to be held within 18th to 25 days of the Dail being dissolved? Given that it was dissolved on Feb 3rd, I make that 23 days. And realistically it was the only option to give students a fair chance to vote on a Friday.

An election campaign is only allowed to be three weeks long by law - just more nonsense from Foxcommander. Quick to insult, not so quick to know basic facts about the political system.

Technically, the shortest campaign in the history of the State gets underway tomorrow.

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/for-those-relishing-the-election-campaign-we-say-enjoy-1.2520578

Be careful of everything you read in the Irish Times because Wikepedia actually has a record of dissolution of the Dail and election date.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_general_election_timetable

Looks like even in recent times, there were shorter campaigns:

1992 - 20 days
1997 - 22 days
2002 - 23 days
Even 2011 only had 1 day more, 24 days.

Will have to remember to fact check you bucks anymore.
Also from that link:
1982 I - 22 days
1982 II - 20 days
1989 - 21 days
1965 - 20 days
1961 - 19 days, etc...

Sorry. I meant to say Mcgarry, got completely mixed up between him and Rushe... Although, in reply to NP.. Mckernan will clearly start, he's been the best player in recent Ulster championship games. It's only feburary

Them feckin red indicators, I still get caught out thinking "yer man must have a bad earth, his tail light is flashing instead of his blinker"

Aye who the hell thought that was a good idea and don't get me started on the frickin' size of the gaps between the door and the frame at a public toilet.

On the mexican food thing, half of Fresno are Mexican so there are loads of authentic style restaurants. One you basically go into someones house and they've a few tables in the front room. I'm not a big beans & rice fan though but do love the tacos

dont mind the gap as long as you dont adopt a wide stance

Tobin believes the Connacht championship will be extremely competitive this summer.

“My own county Galway I think are going in the right direction and can challenge strongly for promotion to Division One. Roscommon have the potential to be formidable. This will benefit Mayo as well and makes the championship something to look forward to.”

He'd say that. As much as a former Mayo footballer will spin a tale of Mayos chances of making the breakthrough. What else would they say? What is the gauge for such a statement. Last year was a bit of a disaster for Ros, Galway, Sligo and Leitrim. The tale of a competitive Province to help win an AI does not hold. In fact it has helped Dublin having an easy passage out of Leinster. Where as a Competitive Ulster has burned out Donegal at the business end.
