I see there was an Edward English from Mullaghbawn playing for Armagh tonight.

Not the kind of name you'd usually associate with South Armagh!

Correct. There are English's in mid/north Armagh but more into rugger or soccer.

We had very regal sounding names tonight: a James and a Charles too. No Billy, though.

I take the diagonal buttresses to represent Navan Fort, although I'm not sure what the red stripe up the middle of it is about.
The tree is appropriate for the Orchard County.
The three-bar cross is, I think, the Papal cross, signifying the city of Armagh's status as the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland.

Personally I always preferred the simpler county coat of arms:

As a youngster, I used to think the cross was an electric pole, and couldn't figure out what that had to do with Armagh

Did he not contradict himself re: Kevin Lynch? Brolly despises violence, criticises those who attacked Heffron, but is happy with the naming of the club after Lynch?

No, you see....you are looking at things in a 2 dimensional sense. Joe doesn't look at things that way.

So a man nearly at the top of his profession in the North, and he can't see things in a 2-D sense? You're opening up a can of worms regards to Kevin Lynch. There is a world of difference between both examples.

To be fair, Joe himself opened up said can of worms.

Have no knowledge of Portrush at all. Went on a school trip once, that was it. During the troubles, we got the feck out of the North. Usually to Donegal. Holidays in the North was and still is alien to me.

Donegal not in the North?

Is that you, Taylor?

Maybe if you had visited Barrys' Amusements and had an ice cream in Morelli's Italian ice cream parlour you would have had a broader outlook in life.

Really? By licking an ice cream and having a ride on a rollercoaster?  :o

RIP Dolores, great distinctive voice.

She suffered from Bi-polar disorder according to some commentators on RTÉ

Remember her saying last year she had a disc problem in her back. Think she had it removed and seemed to be very problematic for her. A recent tour was postponed because of her back problems.

Looking back the last couple of years, in interviews she seemed pale and frail. But I guess she was always pale skinned and of thin build.

I wonder if SF will indeed put Barney the Dinosaur up for the re-election.
