Good news from our Assembly, we can now go to the pub and drink to 2.00am with 1 hour drinking up time to really integrate. But don't go to a football field to spectate where there is 500 meters to social distance in the open air where it is accepted that the virus is unlikely to spread. What about the players who are coming in close contact during the game.

If youíd read past the headlines youíd know that the first part of your rant isnít currently relevant.

Understand, but they may well be in before we are allowed to spectate.

Go on father, go on. Lock the gates to God's house. Sure they were locked at the time of the Famine too. No priest died the time of the Famine: only poor people like us.

Would anyone at the Glenn and Saul game tonight be able to confirm if Shay McCartan togged out. Seen Maurice McKey put up photos on fb and I'm near sure Shay was #10

Correct and sent a Saul player to the shop for groceries while bagging his goal.. Video on the Glenn FB.

Class goal. Always had an eye for a goal. I suppose he is free to do as he wishes whilst not having a soccer club contract. Would be great if he stuck around for a year or so but i suppose there is still very good money in the lower english leagues

Best wishes to the Stone player. I think the GAA has some big calls in next few weeks. If clubs continue to shut down then it will turn into a farce. The risks at GAA clubs are crazy and its very hard for volunteers to enforce rules correctly.

Downjim the reason why every team in every club has covid officers is to allow everyone to act quickly.

The GAA already made the big call there. Itís play on while you can, and donít be a silly bugger when you cannot.

What Iím not sure about is, when championship comes around and a team cannot fulfil: a) postponement, b) walkover or c) reintroduce a loser from the previous round.

Iím hoping itís not a).

I'd say walk-over - time is of the essence.  Only problem is if some club goes down the legal/court route.  That would f**k everything up.

I think GAA HQ would need to make statement shortly clarifying this, or they might leave it up to each county board.

Only problem with this is if some club player tests positive, there's a good chance the club will keep quiet about it and play on regardless.

This has implications which could lead to someone losing their life,  if a club does something like that then the suspensions and punishment must be massive. 
I hope no one is that stupid
