Replying To WanPintWin:  "Not forgetting Kerry greats Eoin Liston and Colm Cooper. Two fine English surnames."
Huh.. explains something An English named man that reigned over his mighty kingdom and considered GAA Royalty by his loyal subjects. It's no wonder he had such an exuberantly expensive state dinner in his honor.

Dublin V Louth - What A Farce - 10 Like(s)
You'd wonder where Louth GAA would be now if they weren't blatantly robbed of a deserved Leinster title in 2010 That win could have brought more players into the game and given them a lot of motivation, winning breeds winning. Ask the Kerry lads.. golden ticket to a semifinal for over a hundred years certainly kept those kids showing up, that and there being SFA else to be doing Unfortunately the exact opposite happened for Louth and now we have Meath supporters making snide remarks about their performance against Dublin... Short self serving memories indeed.

Replying To realdub:  "First of all let me say I like Joanne, she's very good and will get better. But in the name of RTE's lefty agenda, Moloney was never going to get the gig, I'm surprised Panty Bliss didn't get it at this stage."
Lol Couldn't agree more I've worked in the industry my entire adult life and studied it for years before that There was no justification for her landing that gig ahead of far more seasoned and qualified broadcasters who enjoyed far more experience. It was an absolute strategic move made by RTÉ after suffering a lot of bad PR regarding gender inequalities It was a pat on the head move to appease the noise being made against them.

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "link As the hoganstand article suggests Dublin stars can expect to make up to €10,000 for appearances if they win the 5 in a row. Different ball game in the capital."

Congratulations To Limerick - 9 Like(s)
Marvelously joyous scenes today. A truly great Irish sporting moment. A historic day for Limerick GAA and all their fans and again what fantastic scenes at the end of the game. Caps off what was probably one of the greatest Hurling Championships of all time. Hope it's a great week in Limerick city and beyond.. enjoy! It's going to be some homecoming!!

Ulster Team Allege Sectarian Abuse. - 8 Like(s)

Replying To extranjero:  "I just read Joe's article. Particularly loved this bit.... "My father, a veteran republican, fluent Irish speaker and traditional musician steeped in all things Gaelic quipped to me during the week, " Don't be too hard on the southerners Joe, some of them are almost as Irish as we are." " You've just gotta love anyone who co-opts specific aspects of a culture to infer their superiority over others, eh?"
Very well said. It's the same way the loyalists carry on up there.. They try so hard to be British. Ultra British!! Banging drums and marching about the place.. Look at me! Look at me! It's a very similar thing the other way around. There's many a super-duper Irishman up north and they make sure to let us know how great they are.. Look at me! I'm ohh so Irish... Well done you think you're more Irish.. I couldn't care less. I don't particularly think it's anything to be proud of.. Personally I don't like nationalism. It's an enclosed world and I grew out of that nonsense many moons ago. It just doesn't make sense. It's a big world and there's many aspects of other cultures that are superior to our own.

Ulster Team Allege Sectarian Abuse. - 8 Like(s)
It's not on. Simple as that. But sure Ulsterman has called southern posters "free staters" on here in the past Many a time have I seen Ulster posters / country posters call their Dublin counter parts West Brits and Jackeens etc which always struck me as particularly strange especially coming from Ulster posters. It's the same discriminatory language used and for the same reasons. To insinuate that we're somehow lesser. Dublin posters call country posters culchies/mullahs/muckers Plenty of it gets floated about

Congrats to Kildare Current minor & U20 Leinster Champions & All Ireland Champions Hugely impressive and the work being done in Kildare must be top drawer Quick.. FFS Split Dublin! Thank feck we have an outstanding senior side! Despite all the "advantages" despite the funding going into underage in schools which these kids would have benefited from... ( which is supposedly responsible for the sky falling down over certain hysterical posters counties) We can't seem to buy ourselves an underage title... But.. but.. all the funding... I'm so confused!

Dublin V Louth - What A Farce - 8 Like(s)

Replying To TheUsername:  "Some of the tributes were really touching, i read some really poignant tributes over the weeks and there was some lovely scenes down in Portloaise at the weekend in honor, was really fitting given Anton and Paul Flynn that Niall Scully put on an exhibition of half forward play. Hope all's going well for you pal, you've been missed!"
Well said sir. A fitting tribute and Anton will be spoken about in the games ahead. The influence he had on many of the current squad goes beyond sport. He will be in their thoughts and still be a major presence and source of motivation. Cheers for asking man I'm absolutely grand. I've been working flat out for the last few months, work going well and more importantly after a long and perfectly understandable process we were successful and allowed the privilege to became foster parents to a little baby girl a few weeks ago. Quite an amazing experience, best decision we've probably ever made. So many children need help and we decided to do that rather than continue having our own kids. This little girl will be here with us until her parents are ready to have her back. Hopefully that will happen but as it stands she'll be in good hands here and will always have a home one way or the other. Haha I've been missed by some... plenty happy to see the back of me. What number are we at now chief... 28, 29?

Monaghan Vs Dublin - 8 Like(s)
Dublin have barely kicked a ball An away game against a team that always performs against Dublin (especially in the league) will no doubt be difficult I wouldn't be surprised if Monaghan got another good result against Dublin Tough opening trip but looking forward to it.

Dubs sponsorship gets spread out over football/hurling at all age levels male and female It's 100% NOT pumped solely into one senior football team (unlike some) Hurlers are rightly funded just as much as footballers Footballers generally but not exclusively go further in competitions so need the additional funding Mayo spent more than Dublin on their football team in the last number of years Plenty of counties spending very big and breaking the €1million mark But at least Dublin as a true dual county aren't just primarily focusing funding on their senior football team.. How much does Monaghan pump into hurling? Equal to football?

Donegal's Motion Fails - 7 Like(s)
Hearsay, personal assumption/ conjecture / baseless conspiracy theory overload!! An awful lot of energy being spent on a topic that its fairly obvious that many on this thread have very little knowledge about yet (see above descriptiveness) some are preaching as if they are speaking undeniable fact. It's a very poorly administration gaff that shouldn't have happened in the first place. Donegal's wording aside.. at least they did something unlike the rest of yiz.

The 4 in a row - 7 Like(s)
Who can stop Dublin.. Dublin have already achieved a 3 in a row at a time when the game has never been at such a high level of performance Who can stop them achieving 4 on the bounce Another bunch of young lads to be introduced into the O'Byrne cup and league ROC might be back? Paddy Small shooting the lights out for Kickhams - this fella is very close to Con Numerous options from the Dublin U21 AI Champs to introduce, already established young lads blooded in 2017 with success but now carrying the ultimate experience And more than enough years and game time left in the older lads, look at how brilliantly Gavin handled his squad across 2017 Time to launch a very young and talented Dubs O'Byrne Cup and NFL Div 1 squads and carry the best into the championship panel With the players coming through I feel very confident of coming very close once again next year and there will be new and exciting options available. Mayo - still won't have the forwards, Kerry still won't have the defenders and Tyrone are just not a good enough team and especially with Sean gone If Gavin handles his business with such a high degree of excellence across early 2018 as he did in 2017 The 4 in a row is on. It's very much on indeed. Up the Dubs

Kerry V Dublin - 7 Like(s)

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "I take it you'll be watching the game at home on telly as usual jimmy boy, you're not one for traveling to games are you :-)"
Excuse me now! Haha I've travelled NSEW supporting Dublin but I'm no spring chicken anymore and as a family man I can't be getting to every game. I served my time when it was appropriate to do so and to that I can be sure. I'm sure you can't get to all the away games yourself despite best efforts but the advantage is Dublin are the big show and sure more often than not if I can't get to a game I'll have a plan b in place and watch it on the box or record it. I've been to Dublin club games, Charity games, O'Byrne cup and League games over the last few months and nope I wasn't at every single game granted but you see I've other stuff to juggle as I'm sure you do Chief. I've a family to consider and well I'm lucky to have such a problem. I mean Kerry fans are known for not travelling and I completely understand that. As you grow you've got to pick your battles and after being to the last two games.. 3 weeks on the bounce just isn't really doable for me anymore but good luck to those that have the time/freedom/drive to do so.
