Last night the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship kicked off in earnest as all 12 Counties were in action. Reigning championsMeath got their defense underway in Parnell Park as they faced Dublin. It wasnt to be for the Royals as they lost out by 2 goals 4-10 to 2-10 in a lively encounter. Early goals were exchanged with Aaron Chinchilla scoring for Meath only to see it cancelled out shortly afterwards by Sean Purcell. The roles then reversed as it was Dublin who netted next through Robbie Bolger before David Bell responded for the visitors to leave it all square at the break. The second half was where goals proved the difference as Ryan ODwyer and a late strike by Luke Swan were enough to ultimately give the home side the win.

Last years beaten Leinster finalists,Kildare, finished strongly to see off a gallantWicklowside in their first round clash. The teams were level at 0-10 apiece mid-way through the second-half, but Kildare pulled clear thereafter and made the win safe when Adam Conneely struck for a brilliant late goal.

AKilkennyminor team managed by DJ Carey made a welcome return to the Leinster Championship as they hosted Louth in Nowlan Park. The Cats produced a creditable performance, scoring three goals against before losing out by eight points in the end on a score-line of 3-16 to 3-08.

see the GAA has embraced the whole cultural marxism advertising where you have to specifically state that such and such a person or group is welcome rather than it just being implied .

Its like the tesco advert .. "everyone is welcome at tesco" .

Genuine question : Was there ever a point in the past when some people weren't welcome at either Tesco or the GAA ? If No , then why include this in an advertisement ?

I personally would have thought this was a given in any store or club , the fact that these people are being forced to specifically state this fact , just goes to show how Irish Society has been taken over by cultural marxists
