Jesus lads. Pet hate alert...

If we are measuring distance for Gaelic football in terms of moving the ball up, how far a free travels, etc. Its 14 yards or 13 metres.

McManus a pundit on the Sunday game today.

A sop to the “no coverage of Joe McDonagh” but yeah he has been relentlessly raising his profile for a few years now so fair play to him. Would say southerners couldn’t name another Antrim player

I actually thought Neil spoke very well, certainly one of the better punditry performances recently

Our under 20s looked very good at times yesterday too, drawing with Cavan and finishing their league campaign unbeaten after three. Obvious progress in this sector, with half a dozen players or more marking themselves out for senior activity in the near future. Well done to Hugh and backroom team, this set up has been impressive and the panel has responded. many McRory cup medalists are on this panel from either St Marys Mfelt (2017) or St Ronan's (2018).

Totally agree with you, Antrim were by far the better team. And only for a crazy 5 minute spell straight after half time should've been out of sight

A class act on and off the field, possibly one of the best wing half forwards to have played, great work ethic and could score as well. Managers dream player

Some of you are hard to please. Was an unprecedented piece of television.

My main issue was that it was a bit dark when I originally watched it so I changed settings on TV and watched it back last night. My only other gripe was that Jamie, Brienne and Podrick seemed to be stuck against that wall themselves for half the episode. i closed the curtains and turned off all the lights in the room, picture became so much clearer after that

For an 80 minute battle I thought the character moments were still there and done pretty well. (Beric, The Hound, Theon, Jorah, Sansa + Tyrion etc.)

Loved the lighting of the swords and how quickly they were extinguished. Really helped early on to drive home that they couldn't beat the army and had to focus on the night king.

Enjoyed Melisandres not so subtle hint at Arya (Blue eyes) and Lyanna Mormont killing the giant was 100% fan service but enjoyed it none the less.

Most deaths seemed to be to protect someone else (Ed for Sam, Beric for Arya, Theon for Bran, Jorah for Daenerys)

Actually enjoyed that there was chaos. At different stages The Hound, Arya etc. looked like they could give up and be overwhelmed.

Liked that it was Arya and not Jon to kill the Night King. Jon was clean useless btw, running into trouble again and shouting at the dragon yoke at the end.

Apparently the second dragon survived as can be seen in trailer for the next episode.

Looking forward to Cersei's downfall, still think Daenerys could go mad yet.

Enjoyed it, thought it portrayed the chaos pretty well. However still felt somewhat unsatisfied, the ending of the Night King seemed contradictory to his abilities and annoyed me a bit as did all the major players surviving....still bloody hooked though...

Him surviving the dragon fire surprised me I must say although as with you I expected a few bigger names to be cut down at least one of the Starks and a Lannister!

The Melisandre thing confused me why was she coming from the North where had she been?

Does surviving the dragon fire confirm the theory that the night king was a Targaryen? The wee smirk he gave after that was very good.
I'd have liked to know a bit more about the red woman's back story myself. Where was she and what was she doing?
The only small gripe I had was that the night king turned out to be a bit too easy to kill. I'd have liked to see a few 1 on 1s with the White Walkers and maybe between Jon and the Night King.
But have to say, I thought it was a fantastic episode.

Not sure if Jon's dragon died? Is there any army left at all? +1

Pin stripe jersey gone.

An unashamed plug. My kids made this video with their playmobil toys last night and I’m trying to increase their views for them. Have a wee look. Thanks.

Brilliant 10/10

I think anyone who hasn't been up to St Paul's for a few years would be impressed by the improvement in facilities. There is a new terraced area for supporters which is really excellent, much better than before, no grassy banks any more, all concreted with shops, barriers, fencing, etc. There is also a new first-class all-weather warm-up area for teams, plus the pitch surface is vastly improved. The club will admit themselves that the pitch was a weak point in years gone by but they have worked very hard on it, plus several games have been played this year at Colaiste Feirste which is one of the best GAA facilities I have seen, both for spectators and players. In every interview, players and managers talk about the honour and excitement of playing in the Tournament, whether they are new to it, like Inniskeen last Sunday, or Bellaghy who are trying to emulate their previous generation who won it in the 1990s. It's quite incredible that the competition has been hosted every single year in all sorts of climate, both weather and political, since the early 1980s. The host club members have always stepped up to the plate, whether to clear snow or do umpires or whatever, year in year out, giving up their Boxing Day and New Year's Day. The tournament has also inspired an U-16 version in Dromore and an U-21 version in Creggan. But at the end of the day it's up to the players and clubs to take part or not, and every year they come from all parts of Ulster. In 2012, Kilcar left home at 6am to play and an unknown Paddy McBrearty banged in a great goal. 9 months later Paddy won the Sam Maguire. Not that it's all about winning. In fact, Kilcar lost that day. I do recall the Final where the presentation was made in awful conditions a few years ago, but that can happen and of course it is worse when you lose, but it is custom for losing teams to watch the presentation, no matter what the weather is. Half an hour later, everyone was sat down enjoying a 3-course meal in the clubhouse. By the way, it is an official competition, sanctioned by Ulster Council.
