Extremely disappointed for the Bridge, progressive club and a good club, the d**kheads who have gone out of their way to make mischief should bow their heads in shame, I doubt we will see these individuals supporting a GAA team , is it jealousy or just an evil mindset, donít let the begrudges get you down Mayobridge GAC

I enjoy an open mind on any matter. But Jesus thatís one cynical and downright disrespectful comment.

Just asking the question. I know the sales weren't wonderful a few months back. And tell me this Wobbler, do you know how many tickets were sold?

Lotto I have to agree with Wobbler, thatís one crass and disrespectful remark, take Mayobridges post for what it is.

If it's some legal technicality it's a lesson for other organisations to be aware this. An unfortunate situation for them. Real task trying to refund those who wish to be refunded.

For the draw to be legit under current legislation , every person taking part, has to be a member of the club.  Surely they could make everyone an Honorary member for the draw ?

Tickets I believe far in excess of the number needed and thatís from a reliable source.
I heard 4 separate complaints about the draw caused the psni stir.
The issue is clearly that they are in breach of the gambling rules.
They should have set up a special class of membership at £100 with everyone getting free entry into a draw for a house.( or something along those lines).
Clearly an unfortunate episode.

There are some very hard working people behind the scenes in Mayobridge.  I hope they find a way through this and the powers that be can give us all some clarity for the future.  Anyone casting negativity at this should maybe just keep their thoughts to themselves, or better still roll their own sleeves up and do a bit of ticket selling for their own club, generally a thankless task. 

In the bigger picture, GAA clubs, and other sports, do such great work giving young people a pathway, it amazes me that more public funding isnít available.  Itís wasted on so many other things.

Could they finish up better off if most people don't ask for their money back and they still have the house?

Kilcoo seem to be coming into form and most likely to finish top; disappointing to see Clonduff's challenge fade, as I thought they looked very strong earlier in the year. Surprised to see Mayobridge in the relegation dogfight

Some dogfight indeed, 4 teams joint bottom on 10 points and 1 on 12, going down to the wire. Into championship so may see the odd strange result

Does this mean the mighty Warrenpoint are no longer  in the top 4 in the county, I think smurfy was banging on about it earlier, any shocks forecast in the championship, canít see the point winning
