Anyone listening to Aiden Henry needs their head examined

half agree, but at least it is not a cliche filled article, like half the crap you read from the more "seasoned" Dublin and Kerry journalists.

Challenging times. 3 fully paid up members including myself at the club. We are very active and both participate and volunteer with teams...not one of us got a ticket. Wife and I would be season ticket holders also but no options to purchase...ah well! Suppose you have to expect it in current times but a real pain in the ar$e nonetheless!

really feel for you.
I started a thread on attendence in June and the potential problems that one be faced, Never in my wildest drunkiness did I think we would be over 90% fully vaccinated and this same shit show would be present.

GAA deserve a good share of the blame, they only had three or four months to plan for staggered entry and ID check.
if you were told the only way you could get in to see game was to show up three hours before, would you. Answer Yes.
I think back to Mayo V Donegal in Castlebar two years ago, folks were in the ground two to three hours before.

Leo and Tony and HSE should be ashamed embarrased, that they are restricting attandence to 50%, in an outdoor arena, where 90+ % of population are vaccinated.
Anfield and Old Trafford dont have these restrictions. There should be a lot of Anger and frustration directed at both the GAA and Govt (sorry HSE)
Side note, last orders still at 10.45pm , what is the science behind this. Just embarrassing.

Got my two premium tickets today. Very lucky.
However, I feel so bad for really genuine GAA supporters from both Mayo and Tyrone who have followed their teams through thick and thin.
From the Irish Times today,
88% of Adults fully vaccinated, Truly wonderful news , but on the other hand
WTF, it will most likely 93-95% on Saturday Sept 11th, but yet the attendance will only be 50%.
Shameful.

It's a ridiculous cautious approach , it's insane tbh . Full crowds in uk into their third week now .similar vaccine rollout . 

It's hard to understand the reasoning when croke park reported zero covid transmission from all the games up till yesterday .

Mindboggling stuff when you consider that vaccinated percentage ain't going to ever be a lot higher.

On RTE increased BY 1,150 unbelievable.
it should be minimum 60k

Joe McQuillan confirmed as the ref for this All-Ireland final.

Was hoping for Gough.

+1 way more assertive, McQuillan is not.
Advantage Tyrone, as he is an Ulster Referee, Tyrone will be very well aware of how far they can push the boundries, which TBH they are very good at.
Was at the game on Saturday and watched the entire game again last night , got confirmation of that.
Not a slight on Tyrone by any manner of means, as they were the better team on Saturday.

Dublin Joe has been very generous to Mayo againat the Dubs 2012  2013 and 2015. James Horan called him out after 2011. McQuillian had no choice but to send off Don Vaughan in 2017 final.  Listen ye are favourites and have the better team. No need to be whining about referee. Some Mayo supporters are never happy 🙄🙄🙄

Just like you kerry guys and your alter egos;

Kerry for Sams
The Greatest
Eire 90
Macker 15
CK Redhand
Fear anFhiranne

your infantile wind ups' are getting very old.
The gig is up, can you please disappear from what was a very good genuine GAA Blog.
btw shit job by the MODS.

What a final to look forward to now. I'm living on the Sligo Mayo border here and so many of my close mates being Mayo men as well as my boss and manager puts some spice on this for me. The final is being played on my birthday too!!

I think the bookies have this one right at the moment with Mayo being slight favourites but there's really very little in it. Mayo are 5/6 and Tyrone are 11/8 so not huge favourites. Probably about right


Two teak tough teams with no shortage of talent in defense and attack. I can't wait!

Has the ref been named yet? Can't see any other ref allowing as much to go in the next game. It'll be all on the day, Tyrone maybe slight underdogs, but a couple of goals and anything can happen. The game will be relentless, that's for sure. Up Mayo

Joe McQuillian favourite to referee.

Thanks hoynevalley, Kerry for Sam, Eire 90, Thegreatest, Macker 15, ck_Redhand, Cobra and all your other aliases, Get lost for the next two weeks Kerry were beaten. you are a complete tool.

It will be interesting if the GAA go with Tony on only allowing fully vaxed people to the football final. Can't see it happening, but IF it did there would be no reason for it to be less than a full house then.

Bingo,

My exact thoughts, let 75k or 80k vaccinated people in.

Can anyone make sense of this.

Only 1,800 will be allowed to attend the All Ireland Minor football final scheduled for August 28th while 40,000 will attend the senior All-Ireland hurling final this Sunday.

If Tyrone are in it surely it would be a double header at Croke Park with Tyrone V Kerry semi-final.
The sh*t will hit the fan after that if the HSE keep the all-ireland football attendance at 40K, with 90% of adults fully vaccinated, (it is 84% today,) meanwhile full crowds at soccer matches in England.

The GAA hierarchy or lack thereof also deserve some blame for not pushing this.
IMO completley over the top if as stated above, we will be at 90% fully vaccinated on September 11th and only allow 50% attendance, the majority of who will be wearing masks.

The GAA are doing OK, considering that music events are not being allowed, they don't want to press their luck. However, I think GAA HQ just want a quiet life, if the authorities said they could have more if they check vaccination status then they wouldn't bother, the suits will get All Ireland tickets anyway.

Agree, but is it all not a bit daft, you can now eat inside, drink in an outdoor beer garden or inside a pub at a table (despite the best efforts of )
why not increase the capacity to 60k, stagger the entrance of supporters, I feel for one game they would be happy to comply.
It is three weeks away, but with only 40k or 50% attendance, there will be mayhem looking for tickets.
it could very well be another PR disaster for the GOVT, especially if a lot of them go to the game and truly year round supporters do not get tickets.

Cahir O'Kane has suggested that regardless of player welfare concerns Tyrone should have fielded this weekend whether players were suffering from Covid or not. Jesus wept, pray such fcuktards get removed from active society

What a tube - trying to make a name for himself by being controversial.

StPatsAbu is a tube alright

correct and one of Ten aliases he is using including;

The Greatest
Honeyvalle
whodat
CKredhand
Kerryforsam
macker15

many more.

why regular good posters still take the bait and answer him confuses me.

Address your questions to here  https://www.gov.ie/en/organisation-information/63b3b3-office-of-the-chief-medical-officer/.
As for mask wearing....99% obviously take off the mask when they get in the gate ::)

Not true,
I was there at Mayo V Galway, people were for the most part respectful, there were also people walking around telling to you put it on if did not have it on.
Outside they did not wear them.
inside yes.
BTW, it is an outdoor stadium.

"From the HSE today,
Now over 6.4M vaccines administered here with 82% of adults fully vaccinated & 90% partially. Continued great progress too on the 12-15 year olds, with almost 100,000 registered & 47,000 administered. The vaccines are working & give us a pathway to a brighter future."

This is great news on the vaccination front, but can anybody explain the rational behind continued draconian rules behind outdoor sporting events.
How can the powers to be only allow 40k at an all-Ireland final 25 days from now, when the fully vaccinated numbers should have approached 90% ??.
I happened to watch the highlights of some of the Premier league games just checked the attendance 72k at Man Utd, less than 200 miles from Dublin.

The media is filled with Paul Caffrey opinions, is it because he's the best person for the media to talk to now that Dublin are back to the flaky team as they were under his management?

Funny I thought the same thing, why are they resurrecting this clown. Can you ever forget his ill advised shoulder on the Mayo coach back in 2006, I think

Reality is that the GAA will give Tyrone an extra week.
Does anyone think that a team will get a walkover in all-Ireland semi-final, because the GAA would not give an extra week to a team impacted by covid.
They should just announce it tomorrow, if the all Ireland has still to be on sept 4th, so be it,
But that will also be pushed back a week.
One of the very few sensible posts on here today.

By all accounts, it is now pretty obvious that Tyrone will get an extra week, big Q
when will the All-Ireland be, Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th or Saturday 11th.
