Just seen the groups there, senior in particular is interesting. All the big hitters are in the one group, a lot of people won't be happy...

I only got a quick look at an email someone else had but pretty sure group A had Scotstown, Ballybay, Clontibret, Magheracloone and Inniskeen in it. Obviously the rest are group B..

The draw is going to be taking place in the next couple of weeks. Bit of pot stirring going on

Lads - with the games due to throw in in little less than a fortnight does anyone know how the crowds are going to be managed and if the games will be all ticket?

Assuming that we move to Phase 4 as planned on 20th July - will the games that following weekend be limited to 500 people?

If so I can foresee big issues! Imagine Scotstown and Truagh only getting 250 tickets each to divide among members! There's gonna be a lot of cases of players own families not being able to see them play in the Championship.

Are there plans to live stream games or anything?

You'd hope that the county board would have thought about putting in place the facilities for live-streaming but it may not be feasible, especially in the rural areas of the county.

The way I read the statement from the GAA is that the games will not be pre-ticketed but either a member of the county board or a member of the host club will keep track of the number of attendees and report the numbers to the relevant people. But yes a limit of 500 will be hard kept

You would really hope there is a live streamlining plan because my understanding is that the 500 includes players,management and backroom staff.

You can barely make a phone call at many club grounds much less upload a stream for a live game, assuming you're using mobile 4g - rural ireland just isn't capable...deferred coverage is the only option imo unless the club has a landline broadband connection...

upload the game on youtube within a few hours and this will have to satisfy the fans during these strange times..

games should be stop .. this is a breeding ground for the virus.. the country will be on lock down again because people want this to go ahead. some of the company mangers have told the employees no way are they allowed to play, if someone get the virus from a game and the whole company has to close for 2 weeks, we will go out of business.. this is real issues with peoples health and ability to pay their bills - this madness needs to stop

People need to realise that we are going to have to learn to live with this pandemic. A crowd wearing masks that is socially distanced is far less risk than the players on the pitch. This double think is stunning to me. If crowds are a problem then games are a far bigger problem. So either play the games with crowds or don't play the games at all. But stop pretending that the crowds are the problem.

If we are talking about crowd control, who was responsible for the 300+ spectators at an U17 championship game on Friday?
