Must be an election coming.
Ring giving Prenty a lorry load of s to build a big shed.
I don't suppose our Co Sec had the gumption to ask Ring and Leo for anything when they were hob nobbing around Carrick yesterday.

Was looking at this article. No one from Dublin with all it's wealth of young talent feels there is a need to try their hand at the Aussie game?

Over the years Kevin Devine, Sean McGuinness, Declan O'Mahony, Karl Dias, Brian and David Stynes have played Aussie Rules.Ciaran Kilkenny played for a couple months but was homesick. Jack McCaffrey was over for a trial but wasn't interested in pursing a career in Oz. Eric Lowndes, Kevin Nolan, Cian O'Sullivan, James McCarthy, Cormac Costello, Gavin Burke, Shane Carthy and Niall Scully would had trials at various stages.

From your list and the list in the Article, it looks like Aussie Rule option has faded as a decent option for the young Dublin footballer in comparison to being a professional sportsman in their home town?

Some of them.Dublin lads had trials before Dublin success in 2011 and didn't pursue professional career . A lot of the younger players wouldn't be suited to Aussie Rules. There are no professional players in Dublin set up. Yes they get perks but none  are paid.

None of the Mayo lads have any perks/cars etc?

 Did you go to the Mayo gaa team dinner in the Shelbourne hotel in DUBLIN last week? It's not like you had to spend much money following the team this summer

And we won't be spending much this year either following Dads Army.  There will be plenty of money in Mayo this Christmas and next Christmas!

As long Mayo GAA keep coming down to Dublin every Christmas and spending their money down here, that's good enough.

All the culchies head back down the country so every penny counts!!!
