RIP Andy Fletcher.
This was out in my early days in secondary school, always liked it, and in time I grew to love it, and would have it in my top 5 songs.

Dublin v Kildare. Dublin by 9
Kerry v Limerick Kerry by 10
Galway v Roscommon Ros by 6
Donegal v Derry. Derry by 2

Offaly v Wicklow. Wicklow by 4
Carlow v Tipperary Tipp by 9
Laois v Westmeath Westmeath by 9

Longford v Fermanagh Fermanagh by 7
Leitrim v Antrim Antrim by 6
Sligo v London Sligo by 6
Cavan v Down. Cavan by 10

Of the 51 who predicted Wicklow, 12 had the correct margin of victory band of 7,8 or 9 points.

That's enough for Substandard to draw level at the top of the Leaderboard with Taylor and The Trap.

Such excitement...

Ah feck!!  First time in my life I was in the lead!!

General discussion / Re: Tea

Have to say I'm a huge fan of tea, and drink probably far too much of it, with a spoon of sugar each time, but as the auld fella has to check his blood daily, now and again I do, and thus far no problems.
For me, I grew up with two grandparents in the house, and two down the road.  Last thing before leaving either house was to have tea, and first thing entering the house was, yep, 'pon da kittel!'  I also think it's something psychological for me- there'd be a history of drink problems across both sides of the family, and I've always had a fear of becoming an alcoholic, so I think tea substitutes for cravings.
It's always been a social thing, anyone that comes into the house has to have tea or coffee, so like the situation you've described with your aunt, we find ourselves completely at a loss when someone doesn't partake!!
The time the water meters were being installed,  the auld lad was wondering about getting the gun, while the auld lady was fretting about whether to ask them in for tea!!

Leitrim in 94.
I know it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I love Seamus O'Rourke's monologue about it.

Fair play Sligo- was gutted last week, but then you'd think of Red Óg and all the people down the years living for an evening like this evening.
Well done, and best of luck representing the province- nothing to fear now, and all to gain.

Just back from a bad Div 3 league game, and turned on the Late Late.
I think that counts as penance...

RIP Lar.  Enjoyed his posts, whether agreeing or not with them.  A good man, and a passion for his county that was admirable.

Thanks very much for organising it, Mod5, and thanks for the reminders when deadlines were coming,  very well run and very efficient updating scores.  Well done David, happy enough with my own Europa/ Conference finish!!
