      New season kicking off tonight. Watching Dublin V Tyrone on Setanta under the floodlights at Croker. Also the 125th Anniversary of the GAA.

      Dublin v. Tyrone
      There could well be fireworks both on and off the pitch here. Tyrone’s games in the Dr McKenna Cup are to have brought them on plus the returning Stephen O’Neill looks like a man possessed. The Dubs could suffer yet again.
      Verdict: Tyrone

      Might find a link here: http://www.myp2p.eu/broadcast.php?matchid=29627&part=sports

      Yeah, it was a great match. I had to laugh at the black card, I had to text my other half (who was at the game) to find out what it was.

      Players are shown the black card at their first offence. It's the equivalent of getting your warning on your first foul in soccer. The ref takes their name and shows them his black notebook, hence black card.

      >_< I no all about the black card believe me. I was shown it and I laughed at the ref because it was a minor match and there are never bookings in them only sending offs

      My Dad is from Tyrone and so scored us some tickets to the match. What a game- what a spectacle. It was such a good experience to have. Why can't every Gaelic match have this kind of event??

      My own county Laois is playing Meath this Saturday in Meath under lights so should be a good bruising encounter. I remember being up there 3 years ago and the atmospere was electric. It was unusal for a Gealic match cos both sets of supporters spent the whole game chanting to each other.

      Was up in Meath last night and it was a disaster. 1-08 to 06 for Meath. We were brutal. Nearly as bad as the weather. We have Cork at home Saturday night so hopefully we can improve.

          The last All Ireland they won was in '03 and the last Leinster was in '07, they got knocked out by Derry that year in a quarter final replay. I remember the first match in Croker as Dublin were playing Kerry that day. We were 8 points down with 5 minutes to go and fair play to the boys they managed to force a replay. A young lad called Zach Touhy scored what was called after ".one of the greatest goals ever scored in Croke Park." Last year they were knocked out of Leinster by Louth (I think). This years campaign has yet to start but I think the fire is gone from their bellies. Anyway mate UP LAOIS!!!!!

        The standard of football has been really bad in most games. A lot of teams are resorting to the short handpassing tactic which as you know is so boring to watch. Laois are desperate, beaten by Cork on Saturday night in a fairly one sided affair. As for Dublin and Meath in the Championship, it will be a real battle between these two as there always is.       :smack:

      I know, I had really high hopes after the Tyrone, Dublin match. Tyrone were playing football out of this world but everything has died down since. The handpassing game just slows down the whole game and limits scoring chances.

      I have to say Kildare are playing well. They bossed Monaghan around but just fell asleep in the second half. They were still able to win the game.They will be interesting to watch in Leinster.

      Dublin and Meath will be a very high tempered match as always. A few handbags no doubt but it should be a great game, and if Meath can beat Dublin then Leinster will be up for grabs.

      Kildare are looking good although Westmeath are doing well. Hard to look beyond Dublin for  Leinster but when the Championship starts its a different set up than the league. Laois U21s are in the Leinster final after beating Kildare yesterday in O'Moore Park .....3-11 to 0-11. Wasn't at the match but I heard it was a good game.

      Good point but I would like to think they will learn from their mistakes.

      Hopefully Leinster will be more competitive than in recent years. It is a shame that the champions of Leinster struggle to get past the quarter finals of the All Ireland. A bit more competition will raise the standard of football. But to be honest I can see another Kerry V Tyrone final.

      I fancy Kerry to win with the return of Jack O'Connor as manager. What I wouldn't give to have him as Laois boss. Did anybody read his book? I think the Dubs will struggle this year but they have quality players and the manager is new so you never can rule them out.

      Kildare are nearing the finished article and I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the Leinster final and beyond.

          Ha ha! The game you are referring to is called hurling. It's an ancient Irish game and the Scottish have a similar but slower version called shinty. Hurling is the fastest field sport in the world. I played it when I was younger and I have the scars to prove it! Go to gaa.ie and it'll give you all the information you need.
