2,400 spectators allowed to attend the test pilot event Limerick and Cork on Saturday July 3rd in Semple Stadium. That's only 5% of capacity, nothing will be learnt from such a small crowd.

The sight of many unmasked Biffos zitting together won't do much to convince NPHET /Government to increase permitted attendances earlier than planned.

Maybe they are all vaccinated.

Any Offaly supporters sitting together would be likely part of their own social bubble. If vaccinated or tested negative for covid there is a case for no masks. Indoors is the main spreader of the virus and in July we'll have homes or pubs with groups of people watching matches on TV while having near empty stadiums.

Heard what supposedly was a strong rumour last week that a Dublin first team player has retired or opted out this year (on top of Jack and Mannion), but don't know if there's any substance in it and haven't checked to see what rumours are on any Dubs GAA sites.
Won't be any surprise if Cluxton does call time on his county career. He's 40 in September and the type of fellow that wouldn't let the media know that he has retired

If I get to any match I'll not go near any cnut without a mask shouting and spraying germs all over me.
As for the English.......

Long before any covid few wanted any fellow supporter to be spraying his germs on them. The English are having proper 'testing" events. It's a half arsed attempt by us.

Is mask wearing compulsory at matches?
Were an awful lot of unmasked Biffos in Croker Saturday!

Yes going by the government guidelines but I'd question why. That was a test event and test events across Europe has no mask wearing instead they test all before and after events. England at the weekend allowed moshing at a 10,000 rock concert and it's a country full of the 'Delta variant I might add.

I think Armagh will breeze past Antrim but will yet again shite themselves in the semi which should be Monaghsn, although they will be made to fight against Fermanagh.

Donegal will take Down handy enough. I was really optimistic for a Cavan win against Tyrone when the draw was made but it would be heart ruling head to think that now. Tyrone v Donegal semi, I would say Donegal by a few points there and beat Monaghan in the final.

Why was that, don't Cavan have an awful record against Tyrone at senior level over the last number of years?

Ciarán Sheehan Cork.

An All-Ireland winner with the Rebels in 2010, the 30-year-old has been plagued by knee cartilage injuries and has been advised by medics to step back from top-level football.

"My knee has got to the point where competing at inter-county level intensity is no longer an option as the long-term health of the knee is at high risk if I continue to play at that level,"

Full time Derry 0-21 Offaly 1-6. One sided final, Derry look in good shape going into the Championship, their disallowed goal should have stood and could afford that penalty miss with the last kick of the game. Offaly and John Maughan will know that performance this evening won't be good enough to beat Louth next weekend.

Subbing off Bernard Allen after 25 minutes a tactical change or injury? Derry well in control 8-1 ahead.

Half time Derry 0-10 Offaly 1-3. Injury time goal a bit of lifeline for Offaly.

Yiu dont just change the whole team in a transition period, ffs.

Some in the media would led you to believe that Mayo did change their whole team. The likes of Mullin, McLaughlin, Conroy are bedding into a ideal environment of so many experienced players to play along side with and Horan of course whos into his 7th year as Mayo manager to guide them along.

Achilles is the rumoured injury Cillian O'Connor has got if true he'll probably miss all of the Connacht championship campaign.

What height that lad middle of the field for Clare, seemed to have a few inches over O'Shea.

Darren O'Neill 6ft 6

He looked to injured for the majority of the match, limping around a lot with a bandage on his knee

He got a knee in the back and elbow in head from AOS in first 5 minutes. O'Shea dominated him around the middle after that.  He only came into game when went to full forward.  Did he bundle ball over for goal not given? I know Clare got  goal a minute later.
The ball was clearly over the line but officials thought otherwise.

Some score to win it for Monaghan,  yet another year in division 1 for Monaghan fantastic achievement for them to stay up in the top division this long.

Heartbreaking for Galway but only themselves to blame for not closing that game out in normal time

Roscommon got worse the longer the game went on, never looked like getting a goal to get them back into the match. Armagh fully deserved the win and even them will be surprised how comfortable the win was. Huge for their development to retain Div 1 status.

Big drama at the end of that match in Clones. Galway will be kicking themselves for not closing out that game if they go on to lose.

Half time Armagh 1-7 Roscommon 0-7. The goal a big error in the Roscommon defence and could be a big score in a a expected tight match.
