Replying To butterfly:  "Is there talk of allowing 500 spectators into our games up the north? would that possibly include intercounty league games, would happily drive to Derry, down or Antrim for a hurling game at this stage."
Amen….I'd settle for anything too though I must say the GaaGo thing is awesome. I work weekends so it's a lifeline for me. Galway Abu.

Think they are going to allow 500 spectators but trying to get one of those tickets for a Championship game would be near impossible.
Hopefully as things progress they'll start allowing in more and more as things improve.

GAA go has been great. Once crowds are back I hope they keep all these games being covered. 21 games being covered this weekend. Its keeping everyone connected with the games no matter where you are.

I agree with everything you said PLUS the price is very reasonable.

I got the Johnson and Johnson vaccine exactly 48 hours ago. No issues. Nothing. In fact I walked over 5 miles today. Just letting people know in case they're afraid of it. Stay safe.

Yeah no use worrying about games you'd never get into like an All Ireland or whatever. Underage or challenge matches are a more realistic worry for most right now. I hope they open up soon.

The League of Ireland and the rugby have crowds back at games this weekend, I think it's time the GAA got on to the government about letting the crowds back to watch inter-county games.

There is a very small number of games where crowds are being trialled.
which GAA games and how many would you suggest to be used as trials for crowds to come back.7

Next weekends camogie league finals in croke park will have crowds and if there is a division 1 mens football league final it will have some crowds attending

Munster Hurling Semi Final Cork v Limerick in Thurles and Connacht Football game Roscommon v Galway in Hyde Park in a few weeks time are also listed as trial events.....

Fair question and I should have stated it. I'm 53. 54 in October. I got no effects at all from the vaccine but my friend got fair sick from it and missed a day of work this past Wednesday.

For some reason or other, the GAA does not seem to have the influence that Rugby and Soccer have. So it will take a campaign to get the crowds back. A hostile media does not help the GAA. Some of them are just waiting to ponce on any breaking of regulations especially by the GAA fraternity.

The GAA are like daft risk assessors just short of sounding the everything's ok alarm.
In Newbridge this Sunday you will have at least 100 customers in Penney's plus staff and a queue outside. There's no limit in the Whitewater indoor shopping yet St. Conleths Park will have no attendance.
Trials, who needs trials when you have shopping centres open? Get with the times. The meat factories didn't stay closed too long.

I am in Canada and got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine a few weeks ago. I felt tired the next day and my arm was a bit sore but other than that, no noticeable effects whatsoever. I am 52. My wife has had her second dose already. She had the same response as me to her first dose and no reaction at all to the second one.

Oh ok. Some people get hammered with the second dose for whatever reason. Good luck to ye both with it. Galway Abu. (Beat Cork tomorrow).
