Replying To ArmaghCat:  "My family have significant links to An Garda....indeed where among its first members ....this is a GAA forum yet you have been given free rein for some reason to spout widely inaccurate and dangerous comments about not only political parties but people based simply on what part of the island they live on....
As said before its interesting the vast majority of people making these statements are from Meath...."
Tis a grand county Meath.

Also surely in a democracy the people of Meath are equally entitled to their views?

Replying To Crinigan:  "An Armagh man. When you come down here and kill unarmed Gardaí, do you need to go to your local SF rep before going to the law enforcement? You think Gardaí down here want to share a country with that kind of culture and be gunned by "Gaels" from Armagh? And SF barely recognize OnahE as the legitimate defence forces of the state."
That "Gael" from Armagh, was a British citizen. Check out the links. He carried a UK passport. He was a thug and a murderer. I fully support the Garda by the way. Just get your facts right. He was not Irish.

If the posters here from Meath and Limerick put as much effort into Gaelic football as they do into politicking they might start winning. But they are probably just Rugby heads really. On this site to troll.

Did a prominent SF politician from Kerry not pick up the convicted murderer of a Garda detective from prison upon his release from prison? Yes, yes he did. If you had any respect or affiliation with Gardaí in this country there is no way in hell you'd be spouting support for SF on a public forum.

Wouldn't be a big fan of the rugby scene myself, especially in Ireland. Wall to wall coverage of a minority sport. It's all about what school you want to and who your daddy is. And when you go to a match most of the crowd aren't even watching the match, it's all about being seen to be there.

Replying To Htaem:  "The Premierleague is on most weekends as well, the shinners supporters love nothing more than a good game of English club football, that should really keep them away from the polling stations :-)"
Oh how wrong. My original post wasn't allowed. Think back 15 years and see who allowed foreign games to be played on GAA grounds. Not many Ulster counties you'll see.

Why answer your own question? Cringing stuff.

Ah sure look the colour of everyone's ***** is the same at the end of the day Crinigan and I couldn't care less what the toff beside me is looking at, I enjoy watching the games.

It's not really wrong though, PL football is very popular over here, many SF/IRA supporters can also be seen sporting the jersey of their favourite English football club, which is no harm, just an observation.

As for the opening of Croker, that debate is long over and I'm not sure who was for or against it but personally I was for opening anyway, I think it was the neighbourly thing to do, wouldn't you agree?

Question for you Crinigan, out of curiosity...who do you support? Is it FF/IRA or FG/IRA? Or maybe its Labour/Official IRA ?

No such thing as SF/IRA. There is SF and there was IRA. I could guess you would have been on for opening it up. A lot like you too. Glad to see these clubs you support coming to the wall during these times and the more the merrier. And a answer to your question is a big NO.

The effects of the Virus continue to have an impact on the GAA with every league game and some more being shown live at the weekend. I would say some of the games will get more of an online crowd than they would have got live.

That PL football your on about, I'd rather watch London V Meath in a Qualifier and it wouldn't be good stuff.

More people watching is a Silver Lining to this whole mess I suppose.
