This has got to be a record. Maybe I'm finally turning over a new leaf, but I wouldn't hold my breath!
Before I start adding more detail onto the site, like completing the rules or adding in the family history, i want to make a few amendments to the pages that are already there. I've retitled some of the pages so as to more accurately reflect the content. Also the page about planning the stadium (now called "The Gaelic Vision") has been slightly rewritten to take into ...Read Full Post »

OK, I know I haven't done half as much with this as I would have liked, and I know that even I don't believe the promises I make to myself anymore. Still, it's a new year and, in a triumph of hope over experience, here's a list of the things I;d like to achieve in 2010.
- Paint some actual football teams
- Build the stadium
- Finish the rules on the website
- Add in information about the family members who have made notable achievements in football.
- Put up a...

As you can see, I've changed the name of the website. The main reason for doing this is that the web address seemed to be hard to understand by anyone I was telling it to over the phone! I wanted a new name that was catchy enough and reflected the fact that the project I was working on was a GAA version of table football (Subbuteo). This also meant that my website name was free from any trademarked or copyrighted terms. I doubt anyone would have complained about it, and there's certainly enou...Read Full Post »

I've just built a first prototype of what my new goals will be like. It stands at 9.2 cm tall and 8.5 cm wide with the crossbar at 3.3 cm. Of course, this means it is absolutely unplayable! But it's perfect for a model.The prototype is made out of nothing but coat-hangers and Sellotape, which in terms of some grounds I've seen (both GAA and soccer) isn't as unrealistic as it sounds!
I'm also looking into the possibility of building my own stands from scratch. Originally...Read Full Post »

Whoa! It's been a while since I've actually posted anything here. Anyway, all further development of Pairc na Ríocht has been suspended for a while until this recession bottoms out and I can figure out how to fund the project. Still, I can at least continue painting spectators and teams, planning the stadium and of course, completing this site. I have changed the template for this site, and I have a new logo - it's a picture of a 1929 Kerry County Football Championship winner's medal - t...Read Full Post »

Since I've found that I'm attracting a worldwide audience, I decided to make the site a little bit more professional looking. Unfortunately, a lot of the old stuff is inaccessible. Old blog entries can be viewed by going to http://paircnarioch.angelfire.com/blog. The old guestbook can be found at h... Read Full Post »
