Chanced my arm going to Inniskeen yesterday afternoon, had the book of excuses ready to throw at them but didn't need any. Once you had a ten pound note in your pocket they didn't care about what diseases you were carrying. Tried staying 2 yards from everyone but the women kept coming up to me for a chat. Mind you I did get my first post lockdown haircut last Friday and was looking well so couldn't blame them for trying.

You obviously must have got the slurry out and the milking done early yesterday in order to get to the match!!! With endless women chatting to ya, you must have been wearing the boot cut jeans, dock Martin shoes and the cheq shirt!!!

What game were you at or which were you on about?

From looking at various games within the county, some games in particular seemed to have more than 200 spectators Inniskeen and Magheracloone being the one that really springs to mind. I even spotted neutrals at the game from a neighbouring club. Emyvale and Killanny the crowd seemed to gather in the stand which is idiotic to say the least. I don't think the issue is 200 spectators at games it's the fact people are still bunching together. People aren't social distancing at games and my opinion if certain individuals can't stay apart during a game then they should not be eligible for tickets involving their club.

Public health and safety is paramount and at gaa matches when people are on top of each other and with shouting and roaring this gives the virus a chance to spread. Unfortunately Monaghan has suffered a high death rate compared to neighbouring counties. Any club that issues more tickets than is permissible under the current guidance should face sanctions.
I'm all in favour of bigger crowds being at matches but if social distancing can't be maintained with a crowd of 200 what hope have we got with 500 people.

absolute joke .. no social distance at the game I was at, when I told a lad to keep his distance, he just laugh at me. I see Cross played blayney in underage match .. the carry on that's happening in pubs up there, this wasn't a smart move...

Seamus - pubs in the North haven't the same level of control as the South … hence the reason why cases are high there
and I would be very concern with any Monaghan team playing teams from the North. the most important thing is keep the cases low so that the schools can open. Monaghan has a very high level of deaths due to the virus and we need to take example for other counties in the republic who haven't had cases for weeks.

One would have to imagine Ballybay and Carrick will win this week while the other 2 games will be a lot tighter will be interesting to see how latton fare against Scotstown at home

Heard Jack McCarron suffered a serious injury last week......any update ?...hopefully not true as he's had some very long layoffs in his young career to date.

not cruciate anyway i heard, but still a bad injury and will probably miss the rest of the season, and yes i just seen on lattons twitter that it is being streamed, most likely facebook. fair play to most clubs who seem to be making an effort to stream

The Latton v Scotstown game being streamed via Scotstown service at a cost of €5! They seem to be the only club charging for the streaming service while three high quality streams have been provided free of cost to viewers by Byrne Performance. Most recently Ballybay v Maraghcloone

Yeah the quality of Byrne Performance streaming has been great i think. Well done to them and the clubs who have organised this.

First half was very poor. Weather didn't help. When conditions improved in second half it was much better. Is there a gear below first? Because that's what Scotstown were in.
Ballybay were comfortable v Magheracloone, only Tommy Freeman's last minute penalty took the bad look off the score for them.
Inniskeen and Donaghmoyne attracted the largest crowned, which was ironic, because it was poison.
Carrick looked good and could be the team to join the Big Three in semi finals.
There's a mini group of Latton, Carrick and Truagh in group 2. Two of them are going to qualify for latter stages, one is going to be in relegation playoffs .
A very underwhelming week.
Fair play to whoever did the live stream from Carrick. It was the best so far. Magheracloone and Ballybay was very good too. Production values really improved on in one week.By week 5 we'll probably have half time analysts!

Castleblayney and Donaghmoyne look in a spot of bother at this early stage

Some dreadful refeering in the junior championship this weekend. Two yellow cards issued to same player and no red in drumhowan v scotstown game and wrong player red carded in Sean's oram game. Two novice refs with soccer back grounds throw in to championship game. Total disrespect for the junior championship against by the ccc. Would love to see them given a senior game and hear the backlash when they make a balls of it.
