    The Cork lads on here should know if he is, I did read Conveney offer congrats to Cork when they won the double in 2017, not sure I heard anything from 'Mee-Hall'.

    Dyed to the wool Nemo Rangers GAA man. His son plays in goal for Cork Senior team.

    I've seen him at Turners Cross a few times though. Wouldn't have thought he would have much interest in "Soccer" all the same.

    I wouldn't hold be breath.

    He was on Twitter the other day saying how he was a Man Utd fan but congratulations to Liverpool on winning the league.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    Don't know why anyone expects anything from politicians, they're all the same, out for themselves and their own pocket.

    Martin is a proper insufferable dose though. He would have done anything to get that position. It's a poor reflection on the country and our political options that the party that broke the economy is back in government just over a decade later.

    Cabinteely were licking his hole yesterday for some reason. He's only Taoiseach for 2 years anyway and then he's gone sure.

    Our local TDs here are a joke too. Fitzpatrick elected by the GAA crew, can't string two words together, don't know where they got the Sinn Fein fella from, and as for the next lot coming along (McGahon FG, puke!) I despair.

    The new minister for Sport (and about 6 other things) is a Green. Great!

    😁 It's just 6 months of pre and post election nonsense gets to you, and then Varadkar goes and puts "John Delaney back in charge". Another clown!

    I look forward to watching 22 lads kicking a hemp ball around the pitch so. A real pitch of course, none of this plastic rubbish.

    I wouldn't worry about Micheal Martin, it's the new minister for sport, with no sporting background, and a Green party member, that worries me more in terms of FAI, LOI and ground developments in Stranorlar particularly.

    I expect that new stadium designs will have to look like this example from Forest Green.

    No more lawnmowers allowed. Each club will have to assemble a herd of vegans to eat the grass

    Not human - but mow bot, a solar powered robotic lawn mower.
    Nice design, a happy bot.

    Varadkar compared Martin to Delaney during the election debate, got a great old laugh at the time, and now he's got into bed with him. Politicians have no shame.
