Where was the advantage in that? Terrible refereeing.

I liked McGregor's suit!

Well done to the Rossies, a thoroughly deserved victory.

Just finished American Gods, thought it was very good, if a little weird.

Two observations, Gillian Anderson was superb as Media and Pablo Schreiber, as Mad Sweeney, is the absolute spit of Sergio Ramos!

Just reading that, can't think of anyone more deserving.

You take er! If it makes you feel any better, the same team lost out on a place in the Féile two years ago on a coin toss! Of course I was taking them at the time!

To be honest i've lost faith in the Feile. We have a hurling club in our town who go to the Feile EVERY year whether they win the county Feile or not (in fact 3 clubs from the county went this year) I assume this is in order to 'promote' hurling in weaker counties. As a football club we have our training and games disrupted EVERY year in order to facilitate the hurlers going to the Feile, despite on occasion not having won the county Feile. This year however our club made it to the final of the county football Feile - this has only happened on a handful of occasions over the years. We lost out narrowly to the winners and as you would expect everyone in the club was very disappointed. This disappointment was compounded when we discovered that a neighbouring club were to enter the Feile as a 'host club' given there were not enough clubs to host in Monaghan. The club in question (and fair play to them by the way) were beaten in the first round of the Shield comp in the county yet got to go to the All-Ireland competition due to their Geographical location. I would have thought the county runners up (situated 3 miles away would have been next in line to enter as a host.
I am cross due to the effort that was put in by the lads and the opportunity missed for our lads- it seems that the powers that be hand pick who they want at times which is disappointing on those who are perhaps more deserving. In short I dont believe its a level playing field which would have you question why have young lads out training in all conditions from January to try to qualify?

You are absolutely correct in your assertion that your club, as Féile runners up, should have been next in line for a place. But, if I'm right in my assumption the club you refer to were entered into Division 10 and the team that beat you in the county final were entered into Division 1 so your club would be at least Division 2 standard at a minimum? Perhaps the only vacancy as a host club was at Division 10 thus ruling you out, and them in due to their geographical location?

How did Ballygalget end up in the Shield? Did they not win 2 of their games? They beat us well in the shield quarter-final.

Kilcormac Killoughey won the group on less scores conceded I was told. Both teams lost a game in their group and the second team ended up in the shield.

Less scores conceded, that's a strange one! Congratulations on winning the shield, you have some very talented camogs. Our poor goalie went over on her ankle coming out of the changing rooms prior to their opening game and was in a lot of pain all weekend, that probably contributed to the nightmare start she had against you. My daughter was playing corner back and certainly got through a lot of work all weekend. The experience will stand to her and all the girls in the long run. All in all it was a great weekend's craic  and the weather was fantastic.

Very warm in Clara today and some good camogie on show. Our girls battled hard but unfortunately lost their opening two games. Realistically they are not Division 2 standard, I've no idea why they were placed there. Enjoying a well earned pint now.

Just looking at some of the footage, it doesn't look good at all. Horrifying.

Funnily enough last time there was a weak Tory government propped up by unionists, we on the Garvaghy Road got the shit kicked out of us to facilitate an Orange march down the road. There is zero chance of this happening as there would be considerable bloodshed.

Any danger of any of the republicans taking their tongues out of Sessions arse and asking him a question? Sessions is woefully forgetful and evasive.

Boris to replace her and negotiate Brexit? How has it come to this.
All the contenders who failed last time due to personality flaws will be ruled out

Rudd and Hammond I'd say this time

Amber Rudd might lose her seat!
