    when Pat Flanagan weighed into the debate did we take any real notice of whether or not the football Championship truly needs another tier of competition Tyrone need to win ugly again Let s go into uncomfortable territory for a second Knowing that the appetite for this sort of thing has long been sated with a winter spent analysing the scourge of the cynical foul and black cards we press on and ask ourselves one question Enthusiasm of Coggins continues to inspire London in face of adversity A couple of weeks back London county board had applied to play two challenge matches over a weekend ahead of their Connacht Championship match against Sligo Red alert as Ulster title race takes off Old literary legend has it that in the midst of an evening spent in the company of his admiring coterie Ernest Hemingway was challenged to create a story in just six words Dunne may have landed nine points but Keating was man of the match One of the most subjective exercises a journalist will be asked to do is pick a man of the match On Sunday this newspaper along with most others decided that Martin Dunne s nine points were enough to give him the accolade We were all wrong Antrim s day in the sun well deserved For the Antrim fans that made it down through the heart of Ireland last Sunday the Championship did not begin with a crash bang and wallop spectacular of high drama but it was one of the most satisfying days they have enjoyed in recent years Date in the Bronx just as important as those in London in spreading gospel So the race for the All Ireland football Championship began once again in that most mystical of GAA venues The Bronx McIver bold move can inspire Derry On Sunday Eoin Bradley was called off the field by Derry manager Brian McIver after 58 minutes of the Division Two final List of potential All Ireland winners is almost endless at least according to pundits One of the greatest pleasures of this time of year for the Gaelic football follower as April turns into May and the sun gives us the merest glimpse of what it must be like to live in a balmy climate is the innocence of early summer Joys of summer as hunt for Sam starts You may not realise it but the All Ireland football Championship begins in 10 days with Leitrim s pilgrimage to the Big Apple to take on New York more Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Next Most Read Most Shared Most Commented Cathal McCarron s fall is harsh reality Declan Bogue Hair we go again Do you have to be hip or be square Declan Bogue Cavan manager Hyland worth keeping an eye on Declan Bogue Let s get with the programme and put the tactics aside Declan Bogue Jamie Clarke will feel the benefit of his unusual position

  • Cathal McCarron's fall is harsh reality - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    tackled his issues the gambling industry has exploded So has our access to worldwide sport The lives of GAA players have become saturated in sport with little mental release and too much pressure to perform what should be considered an enjoyable pastime With satellite television sport never ends Gamblers can sit through the night throwing money on Australian horse racing or Argentinian soccer When we flick on to watch soccer even on terrestrial television Ray Winstone pops up in Cockney geeza format offering us odds at half time imploring us to Have a bang on that like it s a cosy little crackpipe with your name on it Now picture the typical GAA player on a coach on the way to a match facing a three hour journey The banter and craic on the trip has largely been replaced by men sitting in isolation hunched over i Pads or wearing giant ear phones Your phone is sitting idle with a bookmakers app on the homescreen With nothing to do but waste time the temptation to lay a few bets must be incredible for those consumed by sports culture Nobody sees this man in the bookies The man behind the counter in the bookies can t have a quiet word in the ear of someone responsible who might provide some guidance His car is never parked outside It is a secret game a private shame and we will never know if someone is in real trouble until it is too late The country is full of those that enjoy seeing another man down and in times like these we are reminded of the George Bernard Shaw quote Put an Irishman on the spit and you can always get another Irishman to turn him A few weeks ago I asked Cathal if he would give up his Saturday in order to take a coaching session at Brewster Park as part of a charity event He accepted straight away without question He turned up and was brilliant with the kids who were delighted to be guided by a player they watch marking the best forwards in the game It may take time but McCarron should be allowed to recover from a slip and a relapse into old habits Time will heal everything else and he will be reassured that Mickey Harte left is offering support Above all else the GAA do not practise abandonment Follow BelTel Sport How to Complain If you have a complaint about the editorial content of the Belfast Telegraph or Sunday Life then contact the Editor here If you are not satisfied with the response provided then you can contact the Independent Press Standards Organisation here From the web Sponsored Videos Read More Down and already out but Burns must be given time By Declan Bogue Excuse us while we perform the knee jerk of all knee jerks but it s not too early to say that Down s season in both league and Championship is a write off
