Demographics globally are a move from rural to urban. So what?

 I see the Leinster Council have decided not to adopt a proposal to give Dublin a bye to the Semi Final in 2020.
However they won't do the Semi Final draw till after the Quarter Finals are played.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Very true but so what is a different matter entirely on two fronts.
Dublin at present has around one third of the republic's population and, crucially, almost half of its economic resources.
It's estimated (by Simon Coveney, not me) that over 40% of the population will reside there by 2040. I suspect that he is underestimating  this projection.

Furthermore, with only one CB, Dublin has only one internal club structure to cater for one third of the population.
That's more than the population of 16 other counties. It's no wonder Dublin has an appealing drop out rate, which is much more acute than you'll find in another county.
According to a few Gardai in Finglas that I was charting to their station covers roughly the same population as County Cavan.
But Cavan has 41 clubs and Finglas has only on senior club.
I think the figures speak for themselves.

What do you mean exactly?
Presume you refer to  Erin’s Isle. Who are barely senior. 32 ‘senior’ clubs in Dublin. Erin’s isle might be 20-25th. GAA completely a minority sport in Finglas.
If it became the number one sport, there’d just be more moaning and whining from mup and spewan etc. Another reason why Kildare are underperforming for 100 years

That is all over twitter lol.

350 euros (not counting travel expenses) to be taught how to kick frees. I wonder how many takers he'll get  ;D

(There is the possibility it isn't real mind you but it looks legit...)

jesu I wonde how much could Cillian charge.
Though to be honest I reckon Rory Beggan has the best Technique  of any Kicker i've seen. so little obvious Effort so much distance  . he's a joy to watch.
now if he was a bit more accurate I reckon they'd have to change the rules or he be scoring from any where around midfield

He's already one of the all-time best freetakers ... clubs have no hesitation throwing away money on snake oil salesmen ... I'd say why not.
