He helped the poor tenant farmers fight against their mean landlords. He also became a good friend of the founder of the Land League, Michael Davitt of Mayo, and he formed the first Land League group outside of Mayo. The ‘fight’ was about the ‘Three Fs’ for the poor struggling tenants – fair rent, fixity of tenure and freedom of the tenant to sell his interest in his holding).

(iii) Bord Thrá Lí has decided to introduce a new ‘zero tolerance’ policy regarding abuse and the use of foul and abusive language towards match officials. This is being done (a) because good behaviour, respect for others and the use of respectful language is the hallmark of a well-reared, mannerly and truly sporting person and (b) so that young people might be encouraged to take up refereeing. Referees are being instructed by the Board to report any form of abuse that they receive or any foul language that is directed towards them during or after a game. Any reports of such shameful acts will be dealt with by the CCCC.
THE ROCK: Hard luck to our seniors who went down to Dingle in the County Cship on Saturday evening last. We will be back!
