It'd be great to see an upset. To see one of the minnows have their day in the sun and give a little joy to the long suffering fans but I just can't see it I'm afraid. Longford by 2.

Replying To Themall1916:  "Ronan O'Gara was a fine rugby player won a few triple crowns a grand slam and two Heineken cups happy retirement Ronan."
I'm sure Ronan's a great lad and all the rest but he never buried a goal into the Hill to finish off the Kingdom in an All-Ireland semi final.

Complete straw man argument Wayne imo. Disagreeing with the Sky deal doesn't equate to believing everyone has a right to watch every single game on TV.

The GAA And "Northern Ireland" - 15 Like(s)

Replying To Onion Breath:  "Why are the GAA seemingly unable to issue a statement that includes the words "Northern Ireland" and thereby reflecting the democratic view of people across the entire island to recognise the existence of the state of Northern Ireland? It was democratically recognised when the Treaty was democratically approved in 1921 and again when the Good Friday Agreement was voted on in 1998. Still the GAA, like the IRA, continue to act as if they refuse to recognise the state of Northern Ireland. They're happy enough to recognise the state when it comes accepting government grants. Their linguistic gymnastics designed to avoid saying Northern Ireland are tiresome and irritating at this stage. Enough of "the North"."
The GAA is an All-Island organisation. It uses the four provinces of Ireland to administer its games. The same as other sports such as rugby and hockey. One of those provinces spans 2 jurisdictions. Using a term that excludes 1/3 of one province is silly and I don't know why they'd need to use it. There are enough things to get annoyed about in the world rather than making up ones all by yourself.

Replying To Aibrean:  "Andy was good but Cillian O Connor the highest scorer of all time, FGS!"
By your logic that makes Cillian O'Connor a better forward than Gooch, Maurice Fitzgerald, Peter Canavan, Pat Spillane, Matt Connor etc.......

How Long Have You Been Posting? - 15 Like(s)
I'm 'fishing' and you took the 'bait', 'amn't I so clever' schtick is a fairly tired way of putting up an unpopular and inflammatory opinion and then not having to have the ability or intelligence to defend it. Royaldunne's pro-Loyalist persona is part of his character by now on here but he's always 'trolling' when replied to for some reason.

The Corona Virus And Possible Effects To GAA Matches - 14 Like(s)

Replying To royaldunne:  "You ok with the treatment of Maria Cahill? Aine Adams?? Call me Arlene all u like. I will never defend abusers. Unlike u it seems. Btw how do u feel about a sf elected member defending people who have brought parts of Dublin to its knees?? U ok with that too ?? Obviously"
That's some leap of logic you've made there. Although I don't think logic is quite the correct word to use. I make a little joke, one based on your pro-loyalism/unionist views, and you equate that with me defending abusers? That's not a good look for you to be honest. I've no idea what you're talking about in terms of the rest of your post if I'm honest. It's all a little incoherent to be fair. So because I make a little joke about you being a unionist/loyalist, which to be fair is consistent with your views expressed on here about the North, and suddenly I'm a defender of sexual abuse? Seriously man that's a really low and scummy thing to post about another poster in my opinion.

Four Teams Representing Dublin Geographic Area! - 14 Like(s)

Replying To bdbuddah:  "The basis of the tradational 32 counties of Ireland was the way the British shired Ireland into counties for local administration. Northern Ireland in the 70's moved away from the using counties as basis for administrating local government but never actually abolished their counties. Tipperary used to be one county consisting of 2 ridings (ridings are a sub division of a county). Technically the only one of the tradational 32 Irish counties to be abolished in law is County Dublin."
County Dublin hasn't been abolished though. You seem to think it has because Dublin County Council was split into DLRD, SD and Fingal in 1994. It was already separate from Dublin Corporation. Same way just because there is Cork City Council and Cork County Council doesn't mean that the County of Cork, which includes the city, stops existing. Or that county Derry stops existing because it is split into different administrative zones. Especially in a GAA context which has used the counties as they were traditionally since its inception. Your argument that County Dublin has ceased to exist is wrong and also irrelevant to the current discussion.

Replying To Onion Breath:  "You don't know what you're talking about. The GAA is issuing statements referring very specifically about matters concerning Covid in Northern Ireland, not Ulster."
So that's what is annoying you? The GAA can use whatever language they like as long as it is clear and understandable. If even the likes of yourself understood them then I think they're doing OK. Some people don't use the term Northern Ireland, some do. Get over yourself.

I don't see it as a problem, you've invented the problem and then got offended by your own invented problem. "you sound like one of gobsheen from Sinn Féin' Skipping over your inability to coherently write, if a 'Sinn Féin gobsheen' would think that you have just made up something to be annoyed about so that you could come online and virtue signal about how great you and your opinions are then I am indeed a gobsheen.

Was Buttsy Daly on the panel in 2011 lads? If so he'd have four too. What about Mick Savage? I've a feeling that it was maybe Supple as sub keeper in 2013 but could be wrong. Mick defo has 3 now though.

Replying To bdbuddah:  "I initially was answering a post that pulled someone up for being wrong in not calling Dublin county. I found this ironic as technically Dublin is no longer a county."
But Dublin is a traditional county. It is no longer administered as one county, similar to Cork, Galway, Limerick, Antrim, Down, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Armagh and Derry. Possibly Waterford too. Tipperary had 2 administrative areas for a long time as well. The GAA has never used administrative areas as its basis for inter-county football and hurling. It has always used the traditional 32 counties of Ireland as its basis, and Dublin is one of them. Whether the GAA should break from this tradition is the question of course but the fact that Dublin isn't administered as one county doesn't make it "technically" not a county anymore, especially in a GAA context.

There was a time when people didn't have electricity in their houses too.

Replying To GreenandRed:  "Good question. Don't have a clue. Vaguely or wrongly remember John Maughan taking a few kickouts in his brief career. Apologies for cutting across your question but I've a goalie one. Who was the first goalkeeper to score a goal and a point in an intercounty senior football championship?"
He might not have been the 1st but I'm pretty sure Shane Curran has scored 1-1 in a Champo game for Roscommon.

The Kev Mac goal was embarrassing from their point of view , he went by about ten of them and not a hand laid on him. clondalkindub (Dublin) - Posts:8382 - 27/03/2017 12:34:16 It was yeah. I couldn't believe when he just strolled through. Something wrong in the Roscommon camp going by that non performance. Dublin weren't that good imo.
