Least favourite thing about Junior football: Dirty feckers trying to take the head off ya instead of playing the ball

The Gaels player that should take over as Taoiseach and why: Cathal Mac Suibhne. Because he has the stuff to do and he’ll go out and do it! Plus the cupla focal would come in handy as well.

You’ve just won the €7,100 top prize in the Ranelagh Gaels Club Lotto – you spend the money on: Pay off my debt from my New Zealand trip this year (2010) and a Gaels Jersey to fit Tadhg Kelly…there probably wouldn’t much left after that!

Santy wants to know have you been a goody boy Timmy – and what you want for Christmas: Yes, I have been a good boy this year. I want santa to bring me the winning numbers for the next Ranelagh Gaels lotto draw!

Rule change that would make football better: Bring in the ‘mark’ rule, like in Aussie rules. It would encourage teams to improve their passing.

In ten years time the Gaels will be: 17 years old…like a nice bottle of Jameson!

Playing Junior C Football for Ranelagh Gaels is great because: I get to see places in Dublin that I would never get to see otherwise…like the north side.

  4. Tadhg don’t be taking it personally, Timmy of course will be hiring the man of style Paul Galvin to tailor your jersey! It’s sure to help with his column.

    Enda take note, get on to Paul-G about doing our new jerseys. We could be as big as Stade Francais.
