Argentina not in good shape.

Absolutely awful. No spark whatsoever.

Phil with the big Mea Culpa yesterday

“I know this should’ve come sooner, but it’s taken me a few days to calm down. My anger and frustration got the best of me last weekend. I’m embarrassed and disappointed by my actions.

“It was clearly not my finest moment and I’m sorry.”

No, his finest moment was throwing Tom Watson under the bus at the Ryder cup.
No. Scratch that.
It was his shady dealing in the stock market.
No. Sorry.
It was his shady dealings with a bookie
No.
It was the time he wore a beeper onto the golf course in case his wife went into labour (she didn't)

The man is a total fake and the masked slipped at the US Open. Other Golfers might be arseholes but at least they're consistent. His whole personality is a veneer.

You're forgetting his spike marks and Vijay Singh, and his alleged illegitimate child in AZ.

He's one of the best. Here's a big Phil grin and a thumbs up to you!

Trailer, there’s more evidence that you’re an arsehole in this thread than Phil will ever be.

That won’t last forever. They’ll be holding daddy’s hand intermittently between now and 9/10.

It’s a lovely physical connection and it can lift your spirits with the slightest of touch.

I share custody of my daughter with her Mum and to be honest I don’t know where I fit on the mental health scale but I know I’m pass remarkably happier when she’s under my roof and when we’re engaging with each other. She’s 10 now and starting to assert herself and push the boundaries. There have hands down been times when she’s my sole reason for everything. A great comfort.

Best of luck and keep talking and enjoy those moments of connection with your kids when you get them.

Digging this shot clock masters format. 40 seconds to hit the shot otherwise one stroke penalty. 2 time outs can be called per player, per round.

No one has went over yet!

Didn't think Fado had much going for it at all Iceman. Mediocre stout, Americanized menu and zero conversation.

Good shout on Irelands 32. I enjoy Fiddlers Green in Millbrae as well as The Irish Bank and Foleys in downtown SF. Good stout in all 3.

Gave it a listen, definitely has been edited out.

Alan McBride, whose wife died in the Shankill Bomb, and always speaks very well on these matters, made an absolute wee boy of Bryson about his right to speak on behalf of victims.

If Nolan and his contributors/guests actually waited until everyone was finished talking they’d have no problem making wee boys out of the likes of Bryson. Fact of the matter is the continually interrupt and talk over one another that the winning message almost always gets lost in the noise. It’s my biggest frustration with Nolan’s program.

The SDLP woman, Alan McBride, and even The other lady who lost her daughter had so much to say that actually would have buried Bryson and shown him go for the cut throat Petty point scorer that we all know he is. However they all lost their way and were pushed to lose their way by both Nolan and Bryson. The constant interjection and shouting over is infuriating and the sad thing is I think it’s done on purpose because rational discourse would cut the show to 20 minutes.

Mary, the DUP loving catholic who said everyone is going to hell was another f**king dose.

I don't know what elevating the church to a pedestal or vilifying it does at this stage. I think you're all missing the mark of the need for a post catholic Ireland or even a Neo Catholic Ireland.

Ireland is no longer a Church run state, that much is clear. 2-4 more generations will cement that status. This is not a bad thing, frankly. Casual Catholicism is a very real thing - and the church will have to find a way to fit into Ireland now that Ireland no longer fits into the Church as easily as it did when the grip was vice like. The Church may decide not to pursue any changes in it's commentary on real life in 2018 and beyond, but I think it will and I think it will do so because it will not want to get left behind.

Those who deride Casual Catholicism can do so - but given the saints fall 7 times a day I doubt very much there's many folks around who haven't deviated from a teaching or behavior at times.
I challenge whether those who want to exclude the Church will give it any place at all in Ireland in the coming era? The aggressiveness shown on here alone would point to no.
It's an atheist Ireland where anything goes or bust?
Will you stand up and allow it to exist? Or is freedom of religion only reserved for non-christians? People on here have talked in their delight at the church's decline - I believe they won't be happy until it's done away with?

I'd take that aggressiveness you're seeing and ask you to consider why you're seeing it? To me it's on a par with the Kaepernick kneeling situation. Some people have absolutely had enough. That's something the church needs to understand - in my opinion.

I don't think the church won't exist, so I don't think I'll have to stand up and fight for it to exist. But it will be rightly separated from state matters.

You asked this question of Gallsman  - What role does religion have in your ideal Ireland?

Religion will exist in my ideal Ireland. But it will exist privately for individuals and it will not control society and life how it formerly did. I'm not out here to tell you or me mam not to be a Catholic. But I'm not out here to have the church shape my life. I would not fight for existence of a church that continues to attempt to dominate the fabric of a society.
