An All Ireland with a working Stormont that effectively still looks after and governs the 'wee six' , it has a budget and a payoff from Britain to appease the local, but must have a time frame (20 years) to bring everything into line.. selling something like that could make the ones on the fence buy into it

The mind can only boggle at someone whose reaction to this trial is to deny that there is a problem with men's behaviour yet simultaneously claim there is a problem with women's behaviour.

Give it up Syf/Sid, pick one username and go with it.

Again you have jumped on this rape culture thing, that actually doesnít exist, in your strange mind it does, but it doesnít. Now let it go.

 Iím sure there is a nice girl out there for you, but youíll have bored them to death after your first conversation!

The case will change/ has changed

How rape trials are conducted in the South
How the IRFU  train younger players
The earning capacity of the 2 legends


A very significant legal case therefore

More than anything it should make men question their own behaviours. Not much of that happening in this thread, though.

Jesus! youíre one boring Cnut!

Why are you defensive?

Men and women should question their own behaviour ffs! Pure fantasy that men run around like cavemen, plenty of stupid women out there also, behaving in a manner that wouldnít be the norm!

As for me being defensive, Iím not but Iím bored of the movements out that think they are making a difference, they arenít.... if someone is a rapist then they need to go to jail via the court system, itís the only one available and yeah it could be better..

I donít know of anyone who thought they definitely raped that girl, and if the jury had have found them guilty, then job done, no one I spoke to about this case would have given it a second thought, nor started up a #ibelievethem campaign either.

So put it to bed and start a thread about the ex Armagh player who wanted to rape a taxi driver and rob him on the way home from a night out in Dundalk!

I would like you to explain how the woman did anything wrong, because youíre way out on an island of your own to be suggesting she or any other woman should be looking at their behaviour after an incident like this.

Youíve said some absolutely shocking things in this thread.

Read the post thicko! I didnt say this girl, I said women

Youíre that far up your own arse that you donít see it!!

Would agree with who said earlier about Plumbridge. I'd actually extend that to the Glenelly Valley as a whole.

Portstewart IMO tends to be underrated, nice tidy town, it benefits from being somewhat a student town even when the students aren't there, the Strand is a great beach and has little of the sectarian blight that is otherwise afflicted in nearby Coleraine & Portrush.

A little surprised that some parts of North Antrim haven't been mentioned, Cushendall and Waterfoot/Glenariff have looked like great spots any time I've gone through them.

Enniskillen has it's location going for it and again it's a tidy enough town, though for whatever reason I've always found the natives there a bit cold and unwelcoming, while the traffic in the town centre gets easily chocked at peak times.

Truthfully and honestly I've never been further south of Birr, nor have I ever been in Galway or Mayo with the exception of Charlestown, so I'll defer to those in the know about the southern half a lot better than I do.

Yes Cushendall Cushendun and Waterfoot have a lot going for them.. plenty of great scenery and walks.. Cushendall having some nice places to eat have a pint and a bet!! The natives are grand though a good crowd of Belfast ones have moved in part time  ;)

Longford, Cavan and Monaghan seems to be the cowboy music heartland.

You forgot Tyrone.


Fermanagh is hardly much different..

Is this kind of music a catholic only thing up the north? Or is it cross- curricular?

What?

I think he means do Protestants listen to that kind of music as well   :o
Exactly. Well? Do they? Do the protestants flock to Hugo Duncan, Philomena etc. as well? I dunno? But I am serious about this?

Yes they do ... why wouldn't they?

because many of our interests are different say like motorbike racing seems to be much more popular among Protestants here in the North.

We're more into racing cars, and it doesnt have to be your own car,

Towns that i have been in (or passed through) that I consider shitholes:
Portadown
Newry
Limavady
Coleraine
Newbuildings
Clough

Love Ballina, Westport and Enniscrone (when it's not crowded).
Great call on Dungarvan in Waterford. Some great wee villages and rural pubs round about Portlaw and Carrols Cross area. Might have been my youth or the great weather but I have great memories of the area.

Headed to Dunfanaghy this summer when I'm back, have a wee spot booked right on the beach. Donegal has some gems.

I was going to say Dunfanaghy. I have great memories from there as a young leader at summer camps. Take a walk up around Horn Head for some great views. Also there is a hidden beach about a mile or two accross the dunes from the football pitch which was pretty cool.

Tramore. Beautiful place to walk and see Tory changing shape the further along you go. Rarely run into anybody else. Spent many a day there before heading to pub at top of village for gorgeous pints of stout

Yes many a childhood in Tramore, took the kids there one time, had great fun

Bunbeg, its been a while but I would have went often enough, and with the National park beside it you've got one of the best areas to walk around

Good call, although I think the recession has hit it hard.

Must get back to it then, stayed at the harbour hotel twice and then further up the road at Teac Jacks a couple of times

Hiudai Beag's used to be a fantastic spot.
Drink pints till they come out of your ears and have the craic with anyone that comes in.

Havent been back to it in years.

Was there a nightclub called Seaview or similar?

Aye, was there one year (24 years ago! feck I'm old)  for New years! great craic altogether

Not sure there is anything more to say here
Let's see how many more links seafoid can post before it gets shutdown.

275 pages and counting


Would be interesting to see who had the most posts in those 275 pages.

Syf/Sid.... seeing as they are the same  ;)

Carlingford is an awful kip. A once lovely town infested by Stags and Hens, you can't move from Friday to Monday for them on a normal weekend, never mind a bank holiday and it's like Andytown in July. Fat women in 4 inch heels and too much make up getting airlifted off the mountain. Locals can't afford houses, they are all on Airbnb now. People in Omeath are now advertising their houses as being in Carlingford. For those who don't know it, Omeath is like Tenko with added inbreeding and slightly more despondency, with a bit of luck Brexit will bring a hard border and no one will ever pass Davey's Pub again.
Ä15 for a one way trip on the Scenic Carlingford Ferry over to Greencastle. I'll repeat that Ä15 and we complain about prices for the national league. At least there's a chance when they get as far as Greencastle they won't be back, they'll never get out of Kilkeel alive.

Hens and Stags do have a lot to answer for. A f**king scourge to all, except the breweries.

Never been on a stag do? If you owned a shop, bar, cafe or restaurant, you'd be hoping they make your place a target...

I have, but they have morphed into an abomination, where people behave nothing like they would on a normal night out. Pubs, hotels etc encourage them, but a lot of people abandon their local towns in heg/stag season.

Yeah, I get that, I would have went to Carlingford a lot but once the stags set up shop there, it has changed dramatically. But having been at a great stag there not so long ago and having made complete tits of ourselves, I understand that people who live there (not bar owners ) would find the place just about bearable! So we are going to Spain for the next one!!

what did you do - show them your gaaboard posts  8) ;D

*sits back from laptop, smiles smugly*
