Dick Clerkin and Brolly seem to be continually sniping on Twitter. Not sure what has started it.

A few years ago, Monaghan V Derry, Celtic Park. Clerkin nearly had his eyes gouged out by Doherty. Brolly post match on RTE said Monaghan were the gurriers of Ulster football, never retracted. Doherty 'canonised' by Brolly, GAA hearing cleared of all charges on the basis of Brolly's defense...Clerkin ban stuck...

Because Clerkin was found out as a spoiler with limited ability! He's been going round for a decade raking lads heels and hitting them off the ball because he can't compete on a footballing level just ask Dara O'Se!

Doherty plays football ask anyone but if you want to start on him he won't shy away! I was at all those games and Clerkin got all he deserved!
To quote Clerkin himself (in Declan Bogues book ) "Fergal plays hard, plays fair,I took it to the edge, it was just a case of stopping him and stopping him playing "

There was only one team in Celtic Pk that sunny afternoon who wanted to play football and it wasn't Monaghan. Ferbie met fire with fire.

So, what can we do on the discussion boards to check the validity of the Sunday Times story that O'Neills has been outsourcing some of its manufacturing to Bangladesh and to implore the GAA to do something about it if true?

I'm not Joe Brolly's biggest fan but I'm not sure you can blame him for this.
That was never a square ball!!

I was there of course and still have the game recorded. Monaghan arrived that day to act the wag(Dick in particular) thinking Derry had a soft under belly and were gonna bully their way to victory. Anyone saying different is a blinkered Monaghan man

GAA revisionism is alive and well in Derry. Does your recording include Brolly's rant to confirm your warped viewing? If you recall the Celtic Park match followed two previous championship drubbings dished out by Monaghan to Derry in Casement. You then got a home venue, a weak ref, an eye gouging man possessed in midfield,  and a hatchet job on Conor Mc Manus.

I remember fergal reaching his hand out before the game to shake hands and receiveing a punch in the solar plexus from the bold dick , it definitely set the tone for the game ( to all the dick defenders it would be worth reading Declan Bogues book )

Why does everyone over 5'10" in Ulster get 'big' stuck in front of their name?
Big Dick, Big Doc, Big Tom etc.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
