Re: Byrne v Duignan

That would be a career of covering local and national GAA. Ongoing involvement in GAA administration. Involvement in two large sponsorship deals, dealing directly with county boards from the other side. If you disagree, disagree, but it's hardly a controversial view to say that different ways of wor...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

First and foremost, congratulations and well done to Michael and everyone elected last night. I'm mildly surprised by the result even allowing for the late surge that there was in support for him, much of it on the back of the Tullamore members giving him such a public endorsement at their AGM. If t...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

it's not realistic for most clubs to hold their AGM before convention [/quote] Is it not a requirement in Official Guide for club to hold AGM before convention ??? [/quote] It is - however it's a rule that's widely ignored, and in many cases it's ignored because in order to have your AGM held befor...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Unfortunately I feel public opinion and delegate votes are not aligned for December 10th. If a vote of Offaly GAA patrons was held in the morning, I have no doubt whatsoever what way this would go but the hopes are pinned to club delegates and I have no confidence in their willingness for change. L...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

you honestly regard yourself too highly. As if your opinion will have any outcome on what happens on the 10th anyways. I never said it would. That doesn't mean I drop my professional standards. "Again I will stress that until I talk to MD for the paper, and he's suggested to me that he will be happ...

so Lone Shark will give his opinion each week in print and on here and twitter every other day and when an actual real important issue comes up he is on the fence. Hilarious.
If you can't understand why it isn't appropriate for me to pick a side here, I don't know what I can say to you.

Re: Byrne v Duignan

I should have done this first - I just checked the official guide there.
Rule 3.11 (f) - Voting to fill the Elective positions specified above shall be by secret ballot and on the basis of the
Proportional Representation system.
That seems pretty clear cut.

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Most clubs on the night will have three votes each if they manage to get three delegates to go and the top table one each. See my earlier post on the break down of the votes. I think it's 141 votes overall. I know some clubs have mandated their delegates to vote in a certain way but on the night it...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Can i ask a question regarding the Byrne vs Duignan debate. I know each club gets a vote but who actually decides, i assume it is the secretary but do they go back to their club and and decide or how does it go. What i am getting at here is like the All Ireland B as we could call it and the people ...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

I did not personally abuse anyone..just made reference to to a pool of opinions on here who have always backed the county board yourself included. You were at the same political crap when people were calling for Bolands head. If Mr.Byrne and his buddies do get in again I suppose the only bright sid...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

If Mr.Byrne and his buddies do get in again I suppose the only bright side of it is I can say I told you so in 5 years or 10 years time...pack of uneducated monkeys! Sure Offaly is flying it! I can't let this go unchallenged or not picked up - this is a disgraceful comment. There is absolutely no c...

Re: Divisional sides

It would be a good idea. But the season will never end. You want to have a very good fixtures committee and judging by the underage still going in November Offaly don't have that. Just on this, it's utterly impossible to try and get underage run off much sooner. Don't forget that due to exams, you ...

Re: Divisional sides

Make the Leagues smaller, less games, and throw this regional thing in early in season before real championship starts. I don't know if you're being facetious or genuine. If it's not "real championship", Offaly people don't care. The leagues prove this. There's not a notion of players signing up fo...
