Long shot I know but by any chance would there be anyone travelling from
Cavan to Monaghan on Friday for the match?

Not sure if we'll have enough to run a bus, but I can get a lift from Athlone to
Cavan (I've to spend the weekend in Cavan anyway) but need transport from
there to the game and back.

Aw god help ya! Could u not do a Ray and hop on the team bus in Cavan and ditto back?

alternatively there is a bus from Cavan to Monaghan and u could sleep in the club house (has been done b4!) and get bus back to Cavan next day!

there are some links to the buses

Nah, I dont think that option is available for us mere mortals ;)

Afraid not, I have to be in Cavan Friday night.

Cheers for the links though.

You never know, someone might be driving up from Town :eek:

Surely if you can get there by bus there'll be some Athlone people heading back after the match?
Surley they'd let you on the team bus back as far as Cavan. Clubs have to value their loyal fans.

Or have an "accident". With A&E closed in Monaghan hospital the ambulance would have to bring you to Cavan !!

Not too sure what the story is there, we've had so many managers over the
past 2 seasons and each have had their own rules.
Firstly people were allowed travel, then nobody was allowed travel, then the committee were
allowed travel, then nobody again, then the comittee only but had to pay €5 or something to travel.

All a bit confusing so I'll leave that to a last resort!

You'll get better responses to your threads if you give them more appropriate titles.

He will get more response if he doesnt post in the Monaghan forum on here!

True ... maybe I should have had the title as
"Long shot that anyone will read this" :D

No point in posting it in the Athlone forum here as bugger
all people bother with that either

True ...
As for travelling with the team, theres always something uncomfortable
about roaring abuse at somone for 90mins and then sitting beside
them on the way home :p

Magicme, sorry I didnt egt a chance to chat ya at half time.
Busy texting the highlights to the Cootes who couldn't make it.
The "Mon Dogs" got an honorable mention in all my reports :D

On a more serious note, where are the 4 cows gone????
I was shocked to see they were replaced by 2 horses!!!

Yeah your shock was relayed to me by atfconline by text....fecker enjoyed rubbing the result in too!

So what was ur excuse at the end of the game??? I met another Ray from Athlone at the game and he was still in the pubs and clubs of Monaghan on Sat nite!!

Glad u enjoyed the MonDogs....they are becoming an integral part of all that is good about the eL....pity I am a veggie and have never sampled one!

We hit the road straight after the game as the Cavan Road was closed off
so we had to divert through Newtownbutler, adding an extra bit on to our
journey.

Yeah, the other Ray was up visiting a lad he used to work with.
He was a regular in Mels for years but hasn't been able to go to a game in
ages cos of college and work. He was terrified that he'd jinx the Town by
turning up to the game in CHP :)

Yeah, there was conflicting reports about the Mon Dogs. One of the lads
got one earlier in the game and wasnt best pleased, I waited till the half
time break was nearly over before putting in my order and it was
satisfaction guarenteed :)

The lad he was visiting was an old mate of mine (used to date his uncle!!) so it was good craic Sat nite! Forgot bout the closed road. Its a bloody nusiance. Will have to bear it in mind when am going to Galway but will probably go via cootehill instead then!
