I've reported Minder for sexism.
Zero tolerance.

I donít think that it was his intention. Iíd agree to an extent.

I've reported you as well.

Ah here, I havenít even explained it yet.
I just believe that thereís many more people more deserving of it, be they male or female.


You and the other fella clearly haven't a clue. Aisling Thompson is a warrior and a true inspiration. If you guys don't know that it is your loss. Pathetic stuff, ye should be ashamed of yourselves.

Did I say she wasnít.
All Iím saying is that I believe that there are others far more worthy of a commissioned Laochra Gael than her, both male and female.

Iíd like to clarify that I didnít mean to agree with him fully, I just felt that she was just picked for it ahead of others due to her retirement being more recently than others, as well as being on SportsJoeís live Facebook show.

We should be ashamed of ourselves because we donít know who the f**k Aisling Thompson is? Iíd say 95% of the country hasnít a f**king clue who she is. Another bull shit peddler you are, quick run and find a black, transgender, Syrian refugee that they can make a loachra Gael about. Thereís obviously a white Christian chauvinist hegemony keeling all these loachra gaels Down.

Cork camogie player, fairly tough stages in her life, couple of All Irelands. A very interesting story no doubt.

Has there been a Laochra Gael on Angela or Ann Downey, or Liz Howard? Or even Fiona O'Driscoll. I'd have thought they were much more deserving of Laochra Gael status, but Aisling's story is probably more intriguing.

The Downey's were featured a few years ago. Don't think Liz Howard was, but I could be mistaken.

I only find the Aisling Thompson one odd in that she's still an active player as far as I know. Surely they could have waited until she's retired at least.

Looks like LG are going for less episodes (only 5 this season) but have doubled the length of the show. Will probably suit some players. Others not so much.

I just know Lar's edition is going to be comedy gold.
He's so earnest about everything.
I remember the documentary they did about him a few years ago where he was describing the laundry system his Mam has for washing his gear.  :)

That was something to the effect as to what I was trying to say.

TG4 decide to do a programme on you? It's not a lifetime achievement award......it's a decision by a television programme to commission a programme on your life and moreso your gaelic games career. I suppose you should be a "Laoch"....Ashling Thompson fits the criteria, have no doubt. She's definitely one of the most recognisable camogie players of recent times (along with some of her teammates) and her own personal story is inspiring.

Re: AZ's question above there was one done about Angela and Ann Downey in 2004. That's the only other one to feature camogie players. From ladies football we've had Juliet Murphy, Cora Staunton, Niamh Kindlon, Annette Clarke and Cliodhna O'Connor. Out of 130 episodes. Obviously that's too many for some of our Neanderthal friends.

Perhaps people should contact TG4 with their ideas for "more deserving" candidates?

Aisling has a bag full of AI medals and seemingly a far from normal path through life to date, so no wonder TG4 wanted to do a show on a GAA star with a different story to tell.

Give her a google, powerful stuff and promises to be a great story.
