Hmmm,

Just got an updated fixture list in which all Killoe's matches in both the Senior and Junior championships are marked as "Postponed".

Skulduggery and intrigue going on? Never change, Longford GAA.

Championship will now come to a halt once Killoe go to the DRA or High Court to win their cases leaving the other clubs to bail out the County Board costs, while does responsible slither off into the night

No.

Let the clubs of the individuals concerned pay for the privilege. Some of us want nothing to do with this and will object strenuously if there's an attempt made to land us with the bills.

Why did Killoe refuse to fulfil the fixture?

Rte say its because of 'an outstanding issue'. We can't really make a call on this without that piece.

The allegation is that a player on the opposing team had been given a straight red in a match only for the referee to be pressured into changing the red to a second yellow. The referee subsequently sent in a letter to a county board meeting confirming that he had been so pressured. There is an overlap between the individuals alleged to have applied the pressure and the individuals behind the current sanction.

I am told that a member of the Killoe club when notified of the intended sanction offered to pay the outstanding fine himself but the offer was refused and the sanction imposed regardless.

My experience is that some leading individuals associated with Killoe tend to lack tact in terms of their interactions but it does not justify anything that is going on at the moment.

A new low in this case allegedly happened on Tuesday evening at an U 10 blitz in Killoe. A call was made to the referee coordinator about 2 Emmet Óg club people, who are official referee's and giving their time refereeing the kids learning the game. The caller informed the coordinator that they should not be reffing because of the clubs suspension and for the coordinator to put a stop to it. That the news of the suspension was only breaking, this individual was aware of all what was going on. How much lower can these sleevens drag Longford

This weekend's matches:

Group 3:

Fr Manning Gaels v Carrickedmond, Friday, 8pm, Kenagh.

Group 1:

Mullinalaghta v Rathcline, Saturday, 7pm, Ballymahon.

Group 4:

Granard v Abbeylara, Saturday, 7pm, Edgeworthstown.

Group 2:

Clonguish v Mostrim, Sunday, 6.30pm, Carrickadorrish.

Would favour Carrickedmond, Mullinalaghta (if we can't beat a Division 2 team we can forget about it), Abbey and Clonguish for those matches.

There are no championship betting markets at the moment, presumably because of noises off.

Fr Manning Gaels 1-12 Carrickedmond 0-12

First surprise of the weekend and hard to see Carrickedmond making it to the quarter-finals unless one of their opponents are somehow suspended for 48 weeks. (These days anything is possible.)

Good to see "FOX40WHISTLER", who is very well-informed as to the shitstirrer faction's case, sounding off on H*g*nst*nd. Someone so articulate would be an obvious shoo-in for county chairman should the current incumbent fall off his perch somehow.

Granard 1-12 Abbeylara 1-6

Second major shock of the weekend as Abbey need to beat Dromard next weekend to survive.

Mullinalaghta 4-14 Rathcline 1-10

Was starting to look like a third major shock when we were a point and a man down just before half time but we looked death in the face at half time and decided we didn't want to make a closer acquaintance just yet.

Clonguish 2-12 Mostrim 1-15

Mullinalaghta and Granard are through to the quarter-finals (along with Killoe if the ban was overturned).

If the ban is overturned then a draw between Killoe and Mostrim would see both teams through at the expense of Clonguish. A certain prominent member of the Hearings Committee might be about to learn about the Law of Unintended Consequences  8)

Watched Mostrim v Clonguish on the telly. It was a pretty good game and could have gone either way.

I do think Killoe (hopefully the issues will be resolved) will go out to hammer Mostrim so that Clonguish and all who sail in her will qualify.

I really do think this.

Honestly.
