Tommy Conlon On Sean Boylan's Meath - 4 Like(s)

Replying To carlovia:  "I read the article and thought it was unfair to drag in the second team that Boylan built 96 on as being dirty as they were a young team that played good football. The 80s team was dirty but in their defence football was much tougher back then and all teams got away with stuff that would be jumped on these days."
I always though the Meath team of the late 80's early 90's were hard I would not have called them dirty. I remember Liam Hayes writing that the Meath team hated facing Roscommon even in challenge games as he they know from throw in to final whistle it would be a physical battle. My club team were know as being a fairly hardy team and one of the club transferred to a club in Meath and he said that our team was nothing compared to the teams in Meath. I have always wondered if Meath lack of success in recent years has had to do with some of the rough and tumble in the game having gone out of it.

Replying To Yondu:  "How is he lucky if a similar incident was also one match ban? only those that was losing the run of themselves thought the ban would be longer. Not sure about the moving on either as If Roscommon lose narrowly on Sunday they can point to the loss Donie Smith playing a part in that. On Higgins last i checked you aren't allowed to throw your head in the direction of opponent regardless to what may have happened to him."
people seem to be trying to down play what Smith did, I thought it was a terrible act, very disappointed that a Rossie player would do that. Ok the precedent was set with previous suspensions for such acts and a one game ban is in line with that. But I feel is that the previous offences and this one did merit about a months suspension. The GAA are sending out a signal that eye gouging isn't really that serious an offence. People should have been talking about the magnificent point Smith scored in the first half and not this incident, hopefully he can move on from this now and have a great year.

I'd only have a handful of the Kerry lads in a combined team, sure most of them are in their late 50's/60's now

Thomas McCurtains GAA club in east London/Essex are celebrating their Centenary this year and are in Cork weekend of the commeration celebrations. One of the oldest clubs outside of Ireland, team were always known as the Cork team in London due to their close association with Fords factory in Dagenham and in 1954 the Cork All Ireland winning team with Christy Ring came to Dagenham to play McCurtains. In fact Dagenham was known as Little Cork. Only club in Britain with adult hurling and football, ladies football and camoige and underage hurling and football.

I'd be happier if we had found a few new backs rather than forwards, our issues have not really been putting the ball over the bar (except the Connacht final last year).

100 Years Of London County Board - 3 Like(s)
The London County Board are celebrating 100 years in existence this year, the original board was disbanded before WW1, the board was reformed in 1920 with four clubs and two of the original clubs are still going today. Brother Pearses and Thomas McCurtains. Neither would be regarded as the big names of London GAA, but both are dual clubs, and have a female section, whilst McCurtains also have an underage. Nice article on McCurtains in The42 over the weekend. https://www.the42.ie/thomas-mccurtains-gaa-5058394-Mar2020/

Boards Forum Restructuring - 2 Like(s)
been following this thread the last few days and the majority of people seem pretty content with how things are working currently. I think the fact that the comments are moderated blocks a lot of the nonsense you see on some sites like Journal.ie and the childish back and forth on the comments section. You get a small bit of that on here but you'll still get that if you use a different format.

RIP Tommy Harrell - 2 Like(s)
forgot to post this earlier, just wanted to pass on my condolences to the Harrell family, have known Tommy for a number of years and have to say what an absolute gent he was. Never and easy job being chairman of London County Board but did the job with great dignity. He will be greatly missed around Ruislip. Happy Christmas and New Year to everyone keeping the GAA going over here.

Winning A County Championship - 2 Like(s)

Replying To Nmcg:  "I come from a club that has not won a county championship in 51 years. I don't really want to say the club. I know there is no real answer, but looking for what people in clubs that have won after a prolonged period of time what they put it down to. Is it a crop of players came along and it just happened. Is it down to the people in the club sitting down and coming up with a plan Is it down to management and getting players to commit, like the American football film any given Sunday. I suppose I'm asking for external guidance and views. From where we are(I'm involved underage not senior), which is always losing and lacking the believe that we can win is where our mentality is at it's hard to see the wood from the trees. What can we do to change and bridge the long game Thanks for replies"
my club went around 60 years between senior titles , despite some near misses in the proceeding years and having a very talenting team the big reason for me was bringing in an outside coach. I guess the clubs attitude had been a bit lax. Brought in an outside coach who took no rubbish from anyone and helped to focus the team. Had a similar experience in London, had a coach come in rather than a manager and just got players to focus on how they needed to prepare, train etc. Just having a new voice come in at times can made a big difference.

RIP Diego - 2 Like(s)
what a footballer, alright the likes of Messi and Ronaldo, have had more sustained success over a longer period, but they did not lead the life Diego did. His trophy cabinet may not be as large as there's, but for one man to inspire an average team to a World Cup title was some feat and then to bring them back to the final 4 years later. Then how he turned Napoli from a relatively small provincial team into the top team in Italy. If he had lived the professional life he would probably not have been the player he was. Thanks for the memories.

in a popular vote, every single persons vote would be equal, isnt that what elections are meant to be?
