Interesting there's no nominations for anywhere south of the Galway/Dublin line. Funny that!
Ulster has the majority of nominations.
None of the nominations would be a hurling area either

Most of the gaaboard seems to be from the North. Do the southern lads not have internet or is there another gaa forum out there that the southern ones use?
There is but we're not telling you Nordies about it. You've already ruined this one  ;)

It is only right that Portadown should be the inaugural winners of the "Anthony Fearon Award For Outstanding Achievement In The Field Of Excellence".

far from being the worst around but for some reason or another Caledon and Aughnacloy always depressed the hell out of me. But neither a patch on Keady.

Roscommon's biggest kip = Ballinlough. Runner up Ballaghaderreen.
give it back so if you've fucked it up. it was fine when it was in mayo.
living in the midlands you spoiled for choice .
edenderry  portarlington clara mountrath mountmellick Rathdowney borrisokane take your choice
and regarding Mayo its not somuch that they are shit holle in the sense of being dangerous more they are losing all the young people and to parapharse , President trump the people that are staying are not always the best people, not Criminals or anything but the ambitious one are gone .
i think  the sad fact is the is not much reason for these towns to exist anymore ,
there are no many towns in northmayo but ballycastle killala bangor have all be come place you would have trouble filling an afternoon in, excpt for hard drinking
If you make yourself understood, you're always speaking well. Moliere

I'll ignore your nonsense about turning the clock back to 1897 :D....but you have a point when you say so many small country towns have no real reason to exist any more.
In these motorised days streets of small shops are a throwback to the days of the horse and cart and bicycle and none of those 3 things will be coming back.

Itís not enough to simply put down the name of a town. I think some brief background to justify the nomination should also be provided
Careful now

This is a huge issue. It is about how we organise our society.
To address it properly would require analysing all.the hidden assumptions of the current model which is falling apart.

Houses in Dublin are very expensive. Interest rates are a coiled spring. When neoliberalism collapses life in Ballagh may look quite attractive  . It all comes back to how we value things.

Another thing is the car and rural.towns. You could say that because of the Internet there is no need for the huge centralised bureaucracies that are so common in Dublin.

I'd say most or  all the "back office" functions of Government Departments and big Private Sector Companies could be done by employees from their own homes anywhere in Ireland.
