1/35 Long thread on John Horan’s sit-down with journalists in Scotstown yesterday.

Access to JH for media has been far less than any #GAA president in my experience. I think yesterday was just the third time that I personally had opportunity to question him since he took office.
2/35 But there were 10 journalists in on the interview so you’re never going to put all the questions that you would like to. The interview lasted over 26 minutes and ran to more than 3,700 words on a range of topics.
3/35 The tiered football proposals were prominent. I asked him if there could be a mechanism whereby the tier two winners would re-enter the All-Ireland race similar to Joe McDonagh winners in hurling. I was told it was “not practical” and “there’s been no push for that”.

Twitter, you might have seen this man before, either here or on telly somewhere. His name is Mick McDonagh, and he's Offaly #GAA's biggest fan.

The thing about Mick is that he's not just an Offaly fan. He's a fan of all GAA, of all codes - and it doesn't have to be an Offaly match. If there's a game on, he'll go.
And that's not just a club game elsewhere in the county - he'll go to a game anywhere in the country. If there's a game worth seeing, he'll just go, no matter who's playing. He'll go to four games in a weekend if he can.

But he loves Offaly. Like, he LOVES Offaly.
