Why are Dublin teams using this NATIONAL centre?

Teams are in using the fantastic gym facility

Saves the Dublin County Board having to develop their own centre, lets just use the one paid for by all the other counties!

85,000 players have used Abbotstown since it opened and 80% of those have been from outside Dublin.

Where did that number come from, Heffo?
Not disputing it, just curious.

I don't have a link to post but the centre manager gave it to me Friday - it's reliable info.

I'd love to know how he came up with these figures. Was every player that entered Abbotstown surveyed? And what is the purpose of these figures? Is it to justify Dublin GAA using the facilties?

Presumably it's based on the booking - so if the Kildare U16's are using it they count them as from Kildare. Same as if say Moorefield booked it.

Sorry if the figures don't fit your narrative.

Who were you representing when you asked for these figures?

Ah here, Jack O'Connor is a fantastic manager. 3 Vocational Schools All-Irelands, a Hogan Cup (the first for his school), 2 minor All-Irelands, 3 Seniors and probably an u21 this year. Some man to hand pick jobs if that was the case...

Kerry were very good but Cork were appalling. How many Kerry players got the black card? There was no way they were letting Cork in for a goal in the 2nd half.

Kerry footballers wouldn't do that would they?

time for lee brennan

I was the same at the start if the year but, tbh, he didn't pull up any trees in both games against Donegal in u21s and I'm sure Mickey would have given him some game time earlier in the league if he was showing up well in training. He's plenty of time to develop yet. Although, it'd be interesting to see him have a go at the free kicks.

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

If Tyrone were winning every game there would be slabbers on here giving off that they are peaking too early by doing too much, as it is they are doing ok but again this isn't good enough for most people.  I would hope that Harte is looking at the bigger picture and is looking for the team to peak in the summer, but I still worry over our apparent lack of a plan B, lack of a real top drawer forward or 2, inability to press on kickouts and our inability to score frees.  Mickey Harte is a great manager but change is required.

There is plenty I wish he would do, in my head if he done it it would work perfectly, in reality I haven't a clue and I could just say woops in my head and go back to slating him for the mistakes he makes. He is where he is for a reason so shout about what you would like to see fair enough but cut the hysteria and dilusion in your own head that your changes are the answer

Just a question for your head then. Are you saying that everyones opinion that is not the same as mickey harte(or maybe gavin devlins), are wrong

Yes

I don't have a list of names for you as I have already explained on more than one occasion. Without interviewing each prospective candidate to get their views and opinions on various matters, I am unable to tell you the best candidate for the job.

I would have thought that was obvious but you seem fixated with me giving you names. It's a rather curious obsession you have and may be indicative of deep seated psychological issues.

Unfortunately I am not in a position to facilitate your mental health requirements. Please seek professional help.
Bit harsh here Stallion, although possibly true.
Just out of curiosity Millsy, who would you recommend for the £30k a year job? Fancy it yourself?

I don't disagree with anything positive that has been said about our PRO but it is getting a bit boring at this stage - I think we all know he is doing an excellent job at this stage but can we not change the record?

To what?

Doesn't matter if its Longford, Offaly or Laois who moves onto the site.

Don't forget Antrim is there in the mix and Sligo are not 100% safe

I see the hurley crowd are now talking about the need to revamp their Championship  due to the football revamp.
The Galway question also needs to be addressed.
A few questioning the value of the (gasp!shock!)Munster Championship.
Even Ger Loughnane  on Seó  Spóirt one night.
