Hope it gets better in the remaining episodes.
Apart from the Smiths' tribute to their brother Cian the rest was just fluff.
By the way Enda Smith is on Joe Kiernan's 20 for Australia.
No matter what people think of those games it's still a great honour to be selected on your sport's National team.

The economic argument in favour of reunification has already been proven. But good luck getting that to resonate with the unionists, they'll just dismiss it out of hand. That's a detailed report put together by senior and impartial economists. On the other hand, Jimmy Deenihan was once asked a question on camera about whether or not we could afford reunification, and the unprepared minister grumbled for a second and said "uh, uh, no really....."


Sadly, the economic argument has not been proven. A fundamental problem is that SF are not credible on economic matters and don't seem to have realised that economics is the biggest obstacle to moving thing on.

That report was not published by SF.

It was effectively paid for by SF. I'm not saying it is wrong, but lot more work is needed. Nobody much is doing this work.

If the Republic doesn't qualify at least we will be spared Facebook entries of gobshites serenading babies or helping some **** of a Russian fix a puncture

You're a sad man if that really bothers you.

Lads all us be long dead before theres any united ireland; when a referendum will come and it will happen; the size of a defeat on the percentage vote would kill another referendum for many a year! I nearly say there be a 60-65% vote to remain

Of course there would. I often think SF can be a bit delusional about this sort of thing. The Brexit vote might have moved the needle a bit, but we're a long way off a nationalist majority in the north and there's much work to be done to build one.

"What are you in for?"

"I went swimming on a rotten aul day."

I guess the lives of emergency service personnel doesn't matter a jot to you if you're making quips.

There should be a punishment for willfully ignoring a red alert and potentially putting others in danger. At minimum a fine with the proceeds going to the services tasked with dealing with the eejits when it all goes wrong.

Clowns jumping into the sea and kite surfing when there's an alert like this on, putting the lives of first responders at risk. It should be illegal and punishable with a bit of jail time. Gobs*****s.

I was listening to the radio today and these people were justifying themselves and some other woman who was swimming in Dun Laoghaire who reckoned it was her business and alerts did not apply to her.
