Replying To NYCcavanman:  "absolutely crazy. how do you get to rockland without a car? from the city or queens? I have no idea."
There is actually a bus from the Port Authority very close to the GAA grounds in Rockland.
Go to the Coaches USA website: [url=]https://web.coachusa.com/rockland/index.asp

Search for the bus from Port Authority to Orangeburg, NY. It is the number 20 bus.
It is about 1 hr 15 min by bus.

The 20 bus runs every hour on the hour. Likewise returning from Orangeburg to NYC every hour on the hour.

Here is the link from Coaches USA website for the Number 20 bus schedule.

I hope NY GAA get Gaelic Park operating soon again, but I am glad for Rockland, I am biased because I am one of the original member of the Rockland Hibernians.

Any word on if or when Ian galvin is going to be ratified as NY manger.. the sooner the better as this would give him time to look at next years oppenents in the championship and more time to do what he does best and scout his own players for next year..

2 good sporting games put on by Junior Bs last night. First match saw Rangers overcome a decent Shannon Gaels team and 2nd match saw Celtics win big over St. Pats. So stage is set for B league final, who do yous think will take it? I'd say Celtics with few points to spare.

Celtics might be a bit stronger but rangers will be hard to beat. They bring a little bit extra to crunch games. Barnabas were more than poor yesterday. Not a senior team. So in truth we have 3 senior football teams and 2 hurling senior teams. Is the end of senior near?

Yeah Cross, you could be right. Think Junior B is wide open. Senior football is going to be down to Donegal and Monaghan, and hurling will be non existent in 2-3 years imo.

I was very surprised about that also, actually pretty cheeky I think. Manhattan College have been having graduation parties all week and have full access to field and stands, but people going in to watch a match have been charged money! So all the fun starts now with dealing with the Tappan Zee bridge heading to Rockland for matches. Park officially closed today for 4-8 weeks. Think it'll only take 4 weeks at most, but you just never know.

Donegal and barnabas played an 11 a side senior game yesterday. apparently neither had enough for a full team. yet cork, who are now junior, had a strong panel of 20. firstly, this is obviously terrible for the senior division, but also junior. how can cork go from senior to junior when they have a stronger panel than senior teams?

By all accounts, Cork only has 6 players left from last years team. 6/7 are from Junior B that transferred back to the club and picked up a few new signings.
Hardly going to be competitive in Senior or Intermediate with half a Junior B team..

so they have half a senior team, half a junior B team and new signings. surely they should be an intermediate team.

How were Cork allowed to go Junior B. They were competing at senior level until only recently, surely they had to drop to Junior B??

3for10 where did you hear that Ian Galvin is taking the reigns back of the NY senior team?? That would be mind boggling if true......

Problem here is no rule to overcome this. IMO No team should be allowed to drop two Divisions at once. IE Senior to Junior, Intermediate to Junior B.

This is happening all the time now.

Sorry typo... I ment Junior B. They dropped down from Senior didnt they? I thought that would have ment an automatic drop to Junior B. How did they end up in Junior A??? Sad to see them drop down so much, they were knocking on the Senior door for a few years, seemed to have a lot of home based players to back it up too

I met one of the lads involved with Cork lately and he told me that they just god fed up with the madness in senior and now intermediate football. They got a lot of their own lads back, mostly Cork lads and tried to have a club again rather than been at the mercy of a bunch of paid mercenaries every year. Have a funny feeling they wont be the last going this road somehow.

So Gaelic Park is coming up on 1 week down for resurfacing job. What's the rough timeframe, I heard around 4 weeks. So by the time all the league matches are over, the park should be open for the championship. Not bad I suppose.

there were games sunday. so we are 3 days down, and it's raining today! work probably hasn't started yet. I'd say we are aiming for it to open after 4th July.

I just figured with timeframe, Monday morning was the kickoff of resurfacing job, so after tomorrow would be a full week. Don't think the rain would hold them back from ripping up the old sod, manys I day I worked in the rain haha. So for a job like this, figure first stage is demo of old sod, that can be done in rain. Anybody have any updates if they have indeed started?
