That's from the GAA report. Grass routes is at an all time high and this will keep growing year after year.
Trust the GAA! While everybody else takes the roads and footpaths, they sneak in through the grass routes.
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

It was idiotic what he did but a lot of ref's would have let it go.Was a handy free to kick over as well.

After an excellent first half ,we were very wasteful in the second and only scored once.Not good enough at this level.

A point against Tyrone isnt a bad result and it was very good to see we able for the physical side of their game.

What do you make of Tuam?


The stadium or the Town? LOL

If you referring to Stadium, then I have very strong opinions on it. Amongst extremely deluded people within the North West of Galway, Tuam Stadium is the spiritual home of Galway football. Spiritual in the sense that it stopped hosting Championship matches after 2001 and the rich vein of history the ground has. (it once held an All-Ireland Semi-Final back in the 1940's etc. etc.)

However, the ground was never a fortress. Galway only managed to win half of their championship encounters in Tuam in the 80's and 90's. Even if the Leitrim team of the mid-90's were a better outfit than Galway were at the time, they still managed to win back-to-back Championship games there. Much was made of the fact that in 1997, Mayo won in Tuam for the first time in a generation. When you take into account that venues alternated between Castlebar, Tuam and Salthill in that time period in games between the two, and the fact that Mayo, arguably were the 3rd best team in Connacht between the 60's and late 80's, the stat wasn't at all that impressive. Certainly not in my eyes anyways. And their win there in 99 was exacerbated by the fact we were reigning All-Ireland champions at the time.

I've heard many a time from Mayo fans that they prefer Tuam, that it's a great venue etc. Why wouldn't they? It's a much shorter journey to Tuam than it is to Salthill! And some locals are never shy of sharing that opinion around. Yet the locals are fair more concerned with what their neighbours might say instead of what their fellow county supporter living West of Galway City has to contend with when travelling to Tuam. As long as the "Shams" have a few hundred yards to walk down the road and not have to worry about parking or traffic etc. then all is well. There is a huuuge sense of entitlement with a majority of football fans living in North Galway, a lot of stemming from past glories.

Not all of these locals are that deluded, there's a local group doing great work raising funds to refurbish the ground. They have reasonable expectations. The work they're doing is admirable, but they've given locals in the area wild notions of the old days coming back of Connacht Finals and Galway winning etc.

To quote Dara O'Briain, "nostalgia is just heroin for old people"
Both i suppose!! Will be there in a few weeks might head up the Gilmartin road heard that's a lovely place worth visiting!😂Was only ever in the Gaa ground once a few weeks back just had a look in there was no game taking place! For a lot of Mayo people Tuam would be a lot easier to get to than Castlebar so not really surprised they like going there! Not a fan of Salthill myself they should leave the Hurling games in Ballinasloe.

I can see us having a few of the experience players back for fermanagh game. We play them in 1st round of ulster so both teams be looking at laying down a marker for the summer, add in the Tory Gallagher factor and its an interesting match up

If playing in ballybofey id fancy us but the fact that it's letterkenny I wouldn't be as confident. Don't know why the county board insists on playing their as our record is brutal their only won 2 games in over 10 years their
the closest i will ever come to playing for ireland https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0_7w4JyvI4

Roscommon won a free in on the 21 right in front of goal and apparently (I didn't see this bit) Morgan kneed the player sneakily when he was on the ground. Harney ran in and barged Morgan who fell to the ground and ref changed it to a hop ball

Valuable lesson for the lad. Better off learning this lesson in the league and not championship.

What's the story with PUC.  Any matches on it this weekend or next?

Very sad to hear of the death of John Morrison. By all accounts, a great coach and was hugely respected by all of his players here in Mayo. Sadly, we only had the one year from himself and Mickey, but a wonderful year it was.

They finally did it man... They killed my f**kin' car...

Very sad news. Was in college at the time he was joint manager of Leitrim along with Mickey and lived with two lads on the panel who always spoke highly of him and his training techniques. Has huge respect throughout the game which only reinforces what a great coach/manager he was. 
I do love a good OG
