Wow. It’s been a while since this place has witnessed such an outpouring of emotion. It’s been a veritable exudation of opinion, counter-opinion and questioning of the validity in raising opinions, not to mention plenty of bitching, back-biting, put-downs and all the rest. All very cathartic, I’ve no doubt and I do hope that everyone feels the better for it.
Meanwhile, there were further developments today on the Hyde Park decision. Mindful, however, of the danger of unleashing a second tsunami of outrage and counter-outrage on the issue, I’m saying nowt either about John Prenty’s justification of yesterday evening’s Connacht Council decision or Sligo’s protests about the choice of venue. At this stage, I’m taking it that the decision is a done deal and so there’s no point in discussing it further.
The problem, though, in moving this debate on is that there’s bugger all else in the Mayo GAA world to be talking about right now. Wait, that’s not quite true – there’s another round of club action on this weekend so that’s something different to concentrate on. It’s a bit late at this hour to put up anything on the weekend’s fixtures but I’ll do so in the morning.
