GAA Discussion / Re: AIF 2021 -- Maigh Eo vs Tír Eoghain

McQuillan specifically walked into Morgan prior to the penalty being taken and spoke to him, presumably to tell him to remain on his line so its very curious that the penalty was not retaken. Three officials standing within 10 metres of it and they can't even get that right.

This is the most blatant error of all.
It's a hard one to call at the time. i watched it a few times and when O'Donoghue does his stutter step Morgan is still on the line. By the time he kicks it he's 2 foot off so technically it should be retaken but I'd have an issue with the stutter step in it's being done to make the goalie make a move.

GAA Discussion / Re: All Ireland final tickets thread

I've never seen tickets so tight. I'm a Tyrone man residing in Kildare. I'm secretary of the youth section of our club, manage 1 team and give a dig out for 2 others. 10 tickets where fed out to the Kildare clubs. A draw was done and 5 clubs got 2 tickets each. Still a member at home but had no joy there. Going to head up to Dublin anyway. As a Mayo man in the estate said to me it's best to win or lose amongst your own. At least the people around you will understand what your feeling.

Your commute is two hours each way?
I live in Newbridge and work in Ballsbridge - leave the house at 7 to drive to the railway station - get 7.20 train to Grand Canal Dock - get into work about 08:40. Leave at 5 and get home at 6:50 so essentially 12 hours away from home.
I’d say you’re happy enough wfh!
Some of the commutes into our place are crazy - they-re 4-5 people doing the same as me from Newbridge. At least we all had seats on the train since it starts in Newbridge. It's standing room only from the next station in Sallins. There was one lady in our Dept coming in daily from Edenderry and another fellow coming in from Virginia

Our place is talking about going back in for 3 days a week. Can't say I'm looking forward to it. I had the nicest balance at home - 8 hours work, 8 hours for myself and the family and 8 hours sleep. I found things to be more productive working from home. The travel to work will now make that (12-4-8). The departments in our office were all grouped together and it created a laager like mentality in some areas which meant it was hard to progress work sometimes. It's been far easier to get in contact with people and have the 2 min discussion you might need using Teams. They are also talking of hot desking which I think will remove one of the main benefits of the office which is knowing where the person you need is actually sitting. It means that you're probably going to end up using Teams even if the person is in the same block.

Had my first at 42 and then twins at 45. The twins were actually easier that the first one for me. Probably due to the fact that I knew what to expect and that I was able to work from home. We split the twins at night so that I fed and slept with one in a room downstairs and my wife had the other boy upstairs. Whenever I hear of someone expecting twins I love to tell them of the day that I changed 18 nappies and 4 baby grows in the one day. That was one shitty day.

General discussion / Re: Medical Status of Boardmembers...I'll start

Aged 53 myself. In Feb had the hiccups for a week so got the full checkup done. Thankfully all was well but when I was in for the colonoscopy I was chatting to fellow in the next bed who told me that he had it done every 3 years since his father died with bowel cancer. I'd advise anybody who hits 50 to get a full MOT done.

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

I thought the line was worse in the minor match. We got absolutely destroyed on kick outs. The only plan was to land it on top of McGleenan. Kerry did not want to kick it long and we handed them every kick out by having a sweeper.

Folks, anyone any suggestions to where to head for the day to avoid all the 12th stuff?  Was thinking Omeath or somewhere.  Would be coming from Lisburn so looking somewhere which would take in most of the day.
The Battle of the Boyne site - there won't be an Orangeman near it today

Neither was Red Donnelly

As a Tyrone man living in Newbridge all the pubs are pretty good but Con Cummins would be my favourite. If anybody fancies singing then Con will hand the guitar out over the bar.

Was at the match yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kildare scored a point directly from a mark in the first half. A quick check on google states that this was illegal. Has their been a change in the law regarding this.
A player can score from a a mark.
I misread it  ::)- the player who makes the mark can score but if another player takes the kick then they cannot score from it

I remember looking at the panels for the 2005 All Ireland and 80% of Tyrone's panel was from the senior clubs while 55% of Kerry's panel was from senior clubs. I've always thought that Kerry's senior championship structure was the best way to discover the best players in the county.

GAA Discussion / Re: Kildare v Mayo AI Qualifier Round 3
« on: July 01, 2018, 06:40:14 PM »
Well. I got the whole thing wrong. I thought that kildare could beat Mayo but I didn't think they could do it in Newbridge. It was a cracking atmosphere and kildare didn't hide when the pressure came on. My lads were absolutely buzzing after the match. I've been dragging them to league matches and there was always little enthusiasm from them but I think they've now caught the same bug I caught from going to matches with my dad ;D
