It really is hard to comprehend how small Mullinalaghta is but they have produced really good footballers. These lads are no lucky mugs. The squad is laced with inter county footballers and Fox has really impressed any time I saw him play last year. Couple of their lads played some underage rugby too.

Don't their underage amalgamate with Abbeylara and play in green and black?

Their local village is Gowna in Cavan who themselves used to be a powerhouse in the Cavan championship.

Granard would be close to them as well but that place is an awful shithole.

They often do. They have had good success in recent years.

Is it between two lakes?

Granard is like an oasis compared to Edgeworthstown. It's actually improved a good bit in recent years. The large family that caused lot's of trouble have either grown up or moved on.

Gowna are still strong. We'd have a history of getting lads in to play rugby from Gowna and Arva.

Yep, beautiful part of the world. Mull are based right beside Derrycassin Wood which is lovely place to go for a walk.

My dad is from Cloncovet right beside Mullinalaghta but on the Cavan side so he was in the Mullahoran parish and his team and my mam's team are Mullahoran who had players like Damien O'Reilly play for Cavan. Gowna are Mullahoran's bitter rivals.

I remember going to a Cavan county final years ago when I was a child and Gowna had Dermot McCabe and Bernard Morris playing for them. They were a hell of a side. Needless to say Gowna destroyed them.

That part of the country produces briliant footballers, all in the diocese of Ardagh-Clonmacnoise . St Mels in Longford always good footballers from there.

Edgeworthstown is the weirdest town in the Midlands. Its one street surrounded by dozens of housing estates :lol:

If Mullinalaghta can win it, no reason Legan can't get back in the Senior Championship and win it too :P

Mels were to football what Blackrock were to rugby but the closing of the boarding section finished that. We used get lads from all over to Mels as it really was a nursery for footballers. Mels have won more rugby trophies than football in recent years!

Looked it up there

Jarlaths have most All irelands with 12 - didn't realise they had that many

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogan_Cup

The hurling one is much more stacked with Kierans winning so many, and my schools Flannans in 2nd. The end of boarding has messed up flannans too

Don't think he's gone yet though his successor has been appointed- til that fucker is 6 feet under I'd assume nothing regarding the damage he could still do to Cork GAA.

I'd surprised, actually amazed, if it wasn't a lot more than that. Piss up in a brewery... a more useless shower of bastards I've not seen.

GAA leadership also have to hold their hand up here and take some blame. Letting those numpties run a project of this size was never going to work and considering the amount of money put it was actually irresponsible to not have significant oversight. A complete farce from start to finish.

The pitch there is an absolute shambles also and been higlighted by McKenna. I could bore you to death with horror stories over that, the lights, electrical... but I'd prefer to just close my eyes lalalalala.

RTE becoming GAA channel, meanwhile rugby nowhere to be seen.

Quote:

RTÉ will broadcast live Allianz League and club championship matches for the next three years.

The GAA this morning announced an agreement with RTÉ and eir sport, which will see Allianz League games simulcast by the two broadcasters this spring, while RTÉ will also show live games from the AIB Club Championships.

Complimenting the 31 live Championship games to be broadcast this summer, today's announcement means the national broadcaster has extended its live televised GAA coverage to nine months of the year.

The new agreement runs from 2019 until 2022 and will see the national broadcaster televise live matches from the GAA's three premier national competitions.

RTÉ will simulcast four of eir sport's Saturday Allianz League games under lights, with RTÉ bringing its own style and expertise to the coverage, along with the top class editorial, presentation and punditry teams that have made The Sunday Game the home of televised GAA every summer.

The weekly Allianz League Sunday highlights show also returns, with the first episode on 27 January.

RTÉ's live club championship matches will consist of two matches each weekend, from September through November. Running alongside TG4's existing coverage, RTÉ will select their own two matches separate from the Irish language broadcaster's choices.

Dinosaur talk. What a clown. Gaa blinked coz the general public rightly reminded them how much tax payers money was handed over. And they lost the propaganda war on “foreign sports” more than a few years ago.

My money is on Clare this year. They've been fairly close recently and one team that seems to have Limericks number.

O' Donnell has some skill. Can do something even with 2 or 3 defenders around him.
Clare dying in this half.
