For then Armagh match in the Ulster Championship at Pairc Esler there were shuttle buses running from the train station to the ground and also from the Quays/Buttercrane car parks to the match. I'm sure with the crowd expected they will be running something similar.

That's a partnership between Ulster GAA and Ulsterbus, I don't know if it'll be extended to AI series.

I see Newry train station is a handy 50 minute walk from the field. WTF?  - are there shuttle buses into the City Centre?

The shuttle bus is waiting outside the station and leaves a few minutes after the Enterprise train arrives from Dublin or Belfast. Just head out the main door, bus waiting on the right.

Similarly, the bus leaves the bus station along the canal (opposite Canal Court hotel), and gets you there for the corresponding train to Belfast or Dublin.

Is the canal court hotel near the ground?

Yes. Just a 40 min walk!

40 minutes?

I'd have thought it was much shorter than that unless you've a feed of drink in you.

It is about a mile

It's not as if we're blessed with midfielders either. Best wishes to young Matthew. A true gent off the pitch as well.

Tough break for the lad! Seamie is only a 50 minute man at best anymore and Donie has lost a lot of guile since recent injuries. Parson's  is still a long journey back.

The feel good factor from from winning the League in March and to the New York game is slowly sliding.

So unlucky at a time that Ruane was in fine form. Will S O'Shea take his spot or Diarmuid O'Connor move back into midfield as he did v Kildare last year?

Disaster for Mattie ruane, the team and us lot too. Wish him all the best in his recovery , should still make it back for Breaffy who might fancy their chances this year.

Cillian is also rumored to not be near 100%, I think we are as well off out of 2019 championship at this stage , nobody is really up for it , ya can feel it , there is an air of acceptance now the good run has ended.

I sincerely hope when commentators on both social media and mainstream start writing the aul obituaries that they do take a moment and give a little credit to this band of absolute warriors who have given everything they could the last six/seven years and just came up a little shy of winning it out. There is no need for the nastiness at all , the battle is lost now , when a team leaves the stage like this a bit of respect should be shown.
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.
