Should Derry win, Joe will surely put it down to a dressing room rebellion.

Until listening to these Free State podcasts I hadn't realised just how cheap, bitter and nasty he can be. As long as it was Tyronies I didn't mind so much, the DUP and racists are fair game anytime, but behind the smirky 'don't take me so serious' facade he harbors bitter grudges for years and years. Possibly it irks him no end, the one person who did not applaud him in a room full of worshipers.
Did anyone else nod off while listening to the so called Brian Mullins podcast? (just another 'Mickey Harte is not from Derry' podcast).

I finally took the plunge and watched Spy/Master, a cold war drama series set in Romania in the mid 70s, about the defection of dictator Nic Ceausescu's right hand man. It looked to have all the appeal of a frugal east european communist state paradise, side burns, cigarettes and cheap suits, but it turned out to be very good.

Quote from: Main Street on June 16, 2024, 08:27:55 PMMonaghan threw away achieving 2nd spot in the group but I suppose the only difference finishing third will make is to the length of the homebound journey next week.
You're likely to get a weaker team are you not?

As Monaghan cannot get Louth, they are now going to get Mayo, Galway or Tyrone, not easy games. Had they come second they would have had Roscommon, Derry or Cork in Clones.
yeah second defintely preferable.
Preferable?   death by firing squad or death by hanging?
Monaghan couldn't put away probably the worst  most inept Meath team ever when they had them by the goolies in the 2nd half and with 2nd place beckoning.

Not likely toget a weaker team but we do have a 1 in 3 chance of getting Tyrone  :-\

Quote from: Tony Baloney on June 12, 2024, 08:50:11 PMBit of a purple patch this week on the streamers. Presumed Innocent on Apple+ tonight and The Boys on Prime tamara.
Presumed Innocent, Harrison Ford's Presumed Innocent? What's the point of that?
Aye same. Strung out over episodes.
I was more thinking how can you follow the gravitas of Harrison Ford and Dennehy as his boss. I appreciate that Jake Gyllenhaal is a good actor but it looks like the equivalent of casting Tom Cruise  as lead in a Ben Hur or Spartacus remake. Would you believe Jake if he stepped forward and stated "I am Spartacus"?

Not just a mere useful idiot, Claire is (most probably) a well paid propagandist for the world's worst tyrannical regimes.
Gone and I hope Mick the Pr*ck follows her into the dustbin of Ireland's shame.

Isn't it obvious that Gianni is a made up account for some other GAABoard small membered subscriber.

Since the debate about the refs' interpretation of the advantage rule, from watching some televised games since  I have gotten the impression that the refs are becoming very clear and consistent about the interpretation of the advantage rule and in most all cases called play back if no advantage was accruing, regardless of circumstance.

Quote from: burdizzo on June 11, 2024, 11:15:37 PMWho's talking about 'fascists'? I merely referred to "anti mass-immigration" candidates. You can choose to misrepresent what I said all you like. I call it deliberately dishonest. Now, as I say, away with ya.
Link  still required   to the so called anti mass-immigration" candidates  claimed 15% vote count

Quote from: Itchy on June 11, 2024, 08:03:00 AMYes based on polls at the time. But I was wrong about that and no issue admitting it. I was not wrong however at there being little support for far right parties when they should be at the height of their vote, especially when you look at gains the far right are making in mainland Europe.

"Little support"? According to one figure I saw, anti mass-immigration candidates got 15% in the Dublin euros. I don't know what it is for the other constituencies, but Derek Blighe did surprisingly well in South, and there's the IFP, too. What did SF get?!

Why should right-thinking parties be at their height? The mainstream media and major political parties refused to talk about mass-immigration for a long time. Sinn Fein KEPT insisting "it's all about housing". Hah! Sinn Fein are pure dishonest on the issue, and it's been their undoing. Good.

The right-thinking movement in this country is only getting going. The various parties and individuals are still jockeying for position. At the moment, there's too many little factions and big egos. One will emerge from the crowd.

In other European countries, the right parties are well established. Countries such as France and The Netherlands, Germany, too, have been subject to forced diversity for longer than we have, and people are starting to see it's one-way street.



I wouldn't believe all  that is written on toilet paper.
15% me hole :D

Dublin Euro result
The Irish peoples fascist party 0.5%
National Socialist Party 0.7%
Irish Freedom Fascists 0.9%
Ireland First Fascists 1.2%
Malachai  1.9%





It was The Irish Times. I agree, it is toilet paper.

As for your feeble attempt at being funny... Puh. What is it they say? "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." Well, your statement qualifies under all three. Go to bed.

Provide a link to your toilet paper of choice.
I have offered the recorded minuscule vote % for the Irish fascist parties and it's deposit losing scenario.

Have the Irish fascists recorded the lowest  fascist vote across Europe?

Quote from: Rossfan on June 10, 2024, 11:06:10 AM3 or 4 of the cnuts elected in Dublin.
There are around 950 Council seats in total.

Another of the cnuts ejected from a Count Centre for allegedly assaulting some people.
Sadly Europe in general moving towards extreme right.
Last time that happened Europe had WW2, 40 million deaths, millions displaced, half the Continent destroyed.......
Obviously all the voters who lived through that now dead and the human race displays its inate stupidity once again.
Is that not a desperately poor result for the Irish racists? Ireland First tailed off in last place?

Quote from: Rossfan on June 10, 2024, 06:46:27 PMAny of those 3 woukd be better than the present incumbent.
Carthy would be my choice (if I was a SF member and had a vote).
Time the Party grew up and the local election results might just be the catalyst to get them to do so.

Bigger picture - was good to see over 100 candidates who were immigrants or from an immigrant background.
Possibly 40 elected.
The Whiteys abd Burdys of this forum won't be happy🤣

Oh, I am happy - SO happy! The National Party got a lad elected in Dublin. Brilliant!

As for the immigrants elected... You know political parties are paid to put these 'diversity' candidates up? And you know political parties bussed asylum seekers to polling stations and told them who not to vote for? Bizarre! I was once discussing with a girl - why do governments want to bring in all these immigrants? Do they want consumers, or what? No, I was told, they want voters. Turns out she was right!! Mind boggling. It won't end well
i was once discussing  with ::) .. mind boggling?   some minds are easily boggled.
