How'd that wee donegal shite get a ticket?

Should be banned for life. Also should be getting a visit from the guards.
Seen someone named and shamed him yesterday.

I wouldn't think he is to shamed.

I never really got the County supporter who's not affiliated to his local club, unless he/she have moved away from their area and never bothered with the local club nearby....

Is that the case for these supporters? Or are they just weird?

There is also the club person who doesn't give a hoot about the county until a final comes along...

Being on the club committee means you have duties to carry out, more that anyone else, the work that goes on behind the scenes that no one sees but just expects to be there when they turn up and drop their kids off or watch a senior game.

The running of the shop
Organising club gear
Arranging challenge games and sorting out ref's
Getting the grass cut
Having a ground/pitch clean up
Getting the memberships from arseholes who won't pay them
Checking registrations
Organising tea/food for away teams
Renting a bus for games
Cleaning the club rooms and changing rooms
Working behind the bar
Doing the accounting
Taking shit from wee Johnny's mum an dad cause their kid isn't playing up front
Mediating disagreements with the teams/coaches
Bringing in physio's and organising a doctor come championship
Ensuring the defib is working and nearby
Chair meetings with the club every fortnight and looking at progressing the club further
Setting long term plans so wee johnny has a better training experience that what we had 20 years ago
Arranging the health and safety courses and coaching courses
The lotto
Marketing the club
Working closely with schools
Fundraising.........


These are just some of the jobs the committee do or organise every year, but yeah give Mickey and Mary a ticket over them because they drop their kid off a couple a nights a week so that the kid can develop physically and mental within a great club and go on to be a better person because of it? If Mickey and Mary want to give off about that they can go to soccer or rugby

Where Mickey and Mary are paid up club members they have every right to a ticket from a club draw as  clubs use this as a selling point when trying to sell memberships.

Absolutely. After the volunteers around the club are sorted out first or course. Unfortunately Croke Park is only at 50% this year so it's unlikely that ordinary club members will be accommodated.

Every member has a right to a equal chance of a ticket. What about players if a club have 150 players from underage to senior/junior b etc have they the same right to a ticket as the volunteers?

Everyone looking tickets is paid up members. I doubt a club would guarantee AI tickets as part of their membership.

I doubt they would either, but entry in to a draw for tickets is what they guarantee.

Was up in North mayo today, ballina stephites, knockmore and crossmolina all raffling 2 tickets by selling lines to all and sundry. Personally I think that's real shitty on their members, taking tickets away from members. Half the county going around moaning about no tickets and clubs doing that?
If a county is in the final the clubs will get a lot of tickets. This approach using 2 tickets as a fundraiser is fine provided its agreed beforehand and the remaining tickets are balloted fairly. What's not fine is where the chairman or committee decide there will be a raffle, but nevertheless guarantee themselves tickets from the remainer.

Chairpersons, committee members, mentors, groundskeepers and other club volunteers should absolutely 100% get sorted first for tickets as opposed to Mickey and Mary who drop of Johnny and never lift a finger around the club. There can be no argument on this. The amount of work it takes to run a GAA club nowadays is incredible. These people give up their time free of charge and you begrudge them a few AIF tickets when the county eventually reaches a final?

Without Mickey and Mary there would be no club either.

Yes there would. Mickey and Mary's come and go in all places across the country. The GAA is the one constant.

Kids just don't land at training and games on there own. Mickey and Mary are on the road 3 or 4 times a week dropping the kids to different training's and games sometimes having to leave work early as the game is at 6pm the other side of the county.  You shouldn't be so quick to right them off.

I know John and Bernie have no interest in sport and there kids quit going because John and Bernie  never encouraged them partly because they couldn't be arsed giving up their spare time to bring them to training and games.

I think Kelleher is the best goalie we have at the moment.

How have you come to that conclusion?

From watching Kelleher play for Liverpool a few times. Bazunu is good at the old penaties but overall I think Kelleher is ahead at this point in time.

Kelleher has only played a handful of games and won't see much game time this year either. He probably should have looked for a loan move this season.  I don't think you have seen enough of either to say that Kelleher is better.

Assume the rumour of McVittys returned turned out to be bull.

That's a pity he could have helped us stay out of Division 5.

Time for a clean out. Standards are shocking from Cantwell down.  Spillane is a disgrace.   Cavanagh very poor - shock jocks.

Whats this nonsense of having to have women on the panel for the mens matches and then when the camogie is on its a ladies day out and not a man involved apart from the commentary.

Agreed.

Spillane, Cavanagh, Staunton and Whelan is a gutter of poorly researched, inconsistent and blinkered nonsense, delivered with the panache of an obese American climbing a dozen flights of stairs while chewing a Big Mac.

And if that wasn’t unbearable enough, you then have Cantwell continually interjecting with attempts to reveal how smart and measured she is, and failing miserably each time.


The coverage is disgusting. It would give the  Sunday World the appearance  of a high quality communications outlet.

And you haven't even mentioned the commentators who are no better.

How long do we have to put up with Ger Canning too?
He is close to retirement.

Who will tell us that Joe Bloggs has scored there 5th ever championship goal ?

There is a house in Ballsbridge of all places with Mayo bunting out 2 weeks in advance of the final. Mayo are losing the run of themselves, they think they have won it already.

I don't think one house in Ballsbridge with bunting out can be classified as Mayo losing the run of themselves.

Common sense, for me a ‘blood’ sub can be a temporary assessment of whether that player can come back on, in a championship final you need a good fourth official who’s recording the subs throughout the game.

AFAIK it is the total responsible of the teams to record substitutions.
