You have got them all up in arms now Countyman. But I disagree. If it wasn't for Ulster football we'd be having more of the same as most years the last 100 years. Kerry v Dublin.

Your comments are a disgrace and embarrassment and run against the founding principals of the GAA. Maybe you would be better off popping the short distance across the water to Wales. You seem to have more in common with them than your fellow Gaels. Recent years? Have you seen the 1983 Dublin v Galway AI final?

Disgrace? For pointing out the truth? I dont think 40 years ago would count as recent. Maybe in Rosscommon years it might.

That's why I asked, you believe that pre partition all people living on this island were british (as they were all under british rule), in your opinion the nationality of being Irish was only founded in 1921, it is a strange concept and one that is totally at odds with the GAA (and every historian) who believe that Irish people always existed on this island.

By definition anyone from the island of Ireland is Irish. Even Jeffrey Donaldson. To be British you need to be born on the island of Britain.

I'm guessing the furthest you were North is Jones Road, and Blackpool for your holidays.

Hard to explain the basics of nationhood to the west Brit loving partitionists here. Hilarious how they call themselves Gaels, a 32 county organisation. Sitting at home insulting their fellow Irish on mammy's laptop after playing with the hoover for a while..

That is exactly the point, it wasn't recent and that sort of behaviour has been going on for some time.

Yes because calling someone a West Brit isn't insulting at all....

That's interesting. You can't actually argue with the superficial fact you elude too. Unfortunately for you Irish history is much more complex than two sentences spouted on an Internet forum. But then you probably already know that. Thankfully from my perspective I have always found the GAA a sport that doesn't see any borders and certainly not artificially created ones against the will of the people. Do you know what it was like in the North? A hurl or a GAA sports bag making you a target? Being careful where you went or what you said? Of course not. We are proud in the North of our GAA heritage. We love the game and no one will ever put that out of us.

Sorry but I'm not sure what else you call someone who insults his fellow Irishman.. belittles his unfortunate reality of living in a state that he doesn't recognise, taking a weird pleasure in the fact of partition and essentially looking down their nose at their fellow Gael. Thankfully it's minority mindset but it sadly prevails with plenty in the 26 counties, Man Utd or Liverpool supporters too quite often, ironically.

When I lived in Foxrock, every year, Foxrock put on a fete (very English) for Foxrock "village". Every year, they put up red, white and blue bunting. It was like being back up home around the 12th lol. Everyone in the Gables wine bar read the Daily Telegraph, and spoke with faux English accents. West Briton is not an insult (unless you think being British is bad), it's merely an accurate description of a rich Irish minority who view Irishness and Ireland with a discreet contempt.

Tyrone management has serious issues, unrest in the camp, 9 good players left, half the replacements are not up to standard and will be roasted on a Summer pitch. Tyrone will struggle to do anything in Ulster this year and will not be serious contenders again until there is a change of management.

It's very hard to replace a long term previously successful management team, even it had run its course. However Tyrone people should not complain too much, at least the 'new management team' delivered an All Ireland so must have done something right. I will agree that good players leaving the camp is worrying. Strong leadership now required from the County Board/Committee.
