There are people who have to work even when everyone else is told to stay indoors.

- Policemen
- Ambulance drivers
- Firemen
- Doctors
- Nurses

There were suggestions that community halls and leisure centres should have been catering for the homeless. Clearly the people who run the community centre would have to leave their own home to go to the community centre.

I'm sure that those who went swimming know fine well that there was no life guard on duty, and did it for the thrill. The same kind of thrill that motor cyclists yearn when racing around the Northwest or Tandradgee 100.

The whole question of insensitivity is exemplified by this story on an Ann Frank costume:

Was it insensitive or not?

Can I still wear a Nazi uniform ato a fancy dress party?

Had the misfortune of watching Liar on ITV. It started well, but then had a whole series of twists and turns that were unfathomable. Stupid ending too which set it up for a second series.

Is that a 2 points or 3 points score?

Well done Harps. You've had a long enough barren spell.

You're not predicting Harps to go all the way?

Not often you hear of a road death being talked of as a murder.
It seems strange.

That's what I thought as well. Obviously more to it but such a tragic loss for the family

Was there a second vehicle involved, or had someone tampered with the vehicle, or perhaps harmed her before she got into the car?

If he had been jailed there'd have been no complaints from me.No excuse for bad behaviour at any sports fixtures.Tarnishes the good name of the club.

The young lad acted the eejit at a soccer match while full of drink .  He looks a harmless craytur . 

Imposing  a custodial sentence on him would be pointless and wrong . 

The embarrassment is punishment enough.

Harmless craytur yes, but how much will his action cost Celtic Football Club? Could be a few pennies if they're made to play a home match in an empty stadium.

Dunphy is an ejit but I wouldn't pay too much attention to these comments

So is Trump. And look where he is now.

Sometimes it is better to call out the idiot before the unthinkable happens.

Following on from the map controversy on the Late Late Show,this week we have had Sean O'Rourke laughing on air at Liam Cosgrave's suggestion that water was too good for the hunger strikers and Eamon Dunphy thanking God on air for "Londonderry" (referencing the contribution of Martin O'Neill,Mc Clean and Duffy in Cardiff).

This has caused a howl of protests up North,but no adverse reaction at all in the South.Are we too sensitive up here? I must say I did laugh at Dunphy's comment,which I interpreted at the time as being tongue in cheek

The blocking of certain programmes is particularly distasteful. For example, why would they block Ireland soccer matches, but allow Rugby or Gaelic?

Any time I feel like I'm becoming too sensitive I read Ruth Dudley Edwards column in the Belfast Telegraph. This reminds me that everything that is wrong in Ireland is the fault of northerner Gerry Adams. Examples are:
- Stormont deadlock
- Brexit
- Water shortages
- Homelessness
- Ireland's failure to reach the 2010 World Cup Finals
- GAABoard down

Yeap, all Adams' fault.

Anyone else think Ballyhegan,the club of Noel Marley,Paul Mc Grane and Paddy Mc Keever,even being in the Junior Championship is a shame? I remember them beating the great Clan Na Gael team in a meaningless league fixture in the mid 70s,and there wasn't a cow milked in Ballyhegan for a month!

Ballyhegan have a very small pick,  we field on our own at underage and having subs is a luxury for us. In the late 80s/early 90s we could hardly field at senior level, so i think we're doing very well. We're lucky that we have a large number of lads coming through over the next few years, so hopefully we'll be giving the intermediate a rattle then.

I've always been amazed that you could field a team at all in the area you're in.
