General discussion / Ireland's Greatest Sporting Moment RTE 2
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:57:28 PM »
Focusing on the 1980s tonight.

Top 5 are;

- Barry McGuigan
- Eamon Coghlan
- Ray Houghtons Euro 88 goal
- Stephen Roche Tour win
- seamus Darby AI winning goal 82

No mention of Dennis Taylor's world championship win in 1985. Surely that's Ireland's greatest sporting moment of the 1980s?

General discussion / Van Hire question

Need to hire a van for the day. Anyone recommend a hire firm in the Craigavon/Armagh area?  And how much it's likely to cost?

General discussion / Big Head John Terry clocks off an hour early

I'm only really catching this story today as I missed MOTD on Sunday.

Apparently he organised it all himself. Jaysus, what a egotistical arsehole!

GAA Discussion / Italian National Anthem played before Hurling match
« on: February 14, 2017, 12:30:13 AM »
Apparently it was played by mistake before Cork v Clare on Saturday night.

I hope Billy Sheehan wasn't in attendance. Poor fella is confused enough as it is.

General discussion / Dogs and House Rules
« on: February 07, 2017, 02:51:56 PM »
A few short years ago, I never knew of a dog that got over the back door. Now they never leave the house. Call to someone's house these days and if there's not a half dozen Jack Russells jumping over you on the sofa, a Labrador is eating your ham sandwich off your plate or a Rottweiler is eyeing you up because you're sitting in his armchair. Seriously, what the feck is going on? When did all this become the norm?

Do you have a dog, and what rules do you insist on?

Do they live indoors or do they never get over the door?

Does it cause arguments in the family?

Other than having a relay race in Croke Park a couple of years ago, where else do you see athletics promoted? Surely it's time for a name change?

The GA doesn't have the same ring to it, but surely the Athletic part is meaningless?

General discussion / Mass attendance

OK so results are not going to be reflective of the country as a whole, but just wondered about the boards mass attendance.

General discussion / Britannia Rules The Waves... of Lough Foyle?
« on: November 18, 2016, 04:39:07 PM »
So, the Brits say they own all of Lough Foyle.

Lough-stealing backstards!

General discussion / Singers/Vocalists you hate
« on: November 04, 2016, 05:24:12 PM »
We've had great voices, so it's only right we have a thread of singers you can't stand. I'll start...

Adele
Ellie Goulding
Leann Rimes
Celine Dion

GAA Discussion / GAA clubs named after Republican figures
« on: October 05, 2016, 05:35:47 PM »
I'm interested in collating how many clubs in Ireland are named after Republican figures, particularly those from the 1916 and 1798 rebellions. Feel free to add your own county.

Armagh folk may want to correct me, or add more...

Ok, trying to get into holiday mode and thought I'd see if there's anything in Ireland I could/need/should do or experience.

I've done a few things on my list in recent years (climbed Croagh Patrick, visited Dun Aonghusa on Inishmore, seen Fungi in Dingle etc).

What would you recommend seeing/experiencing in Ireland at least once in your life?

Glenswilly stuffed St Eunan's 0-3 to 0-2 yesterday in the Donegal league. Only one point scored in the second half. Has there ever been a lower scoring match?

GAA Discussion / Davy Fitzgerald
« on: July 21, 2016, 08:48:26 PM »
I see Davy underwent minor heart surgery. Hope all went well for him and he's back soon. Can't imagine him being on the sidelines can be good for him though.

Well, what did you think?

General discussion / Lough Derg Pilgrimage
« on: May 08, 2016, 10:20:36 PM »
Got into a conversation over the weekend about doing the Lough Derg pilgrimage in Donegal. My first reaction was balls to that, as I'm not exactly the most religious catholic in the country and running around in my bare feet doesn't sound like my idea of a good time. But later I thought maybe it might be something to consider. One of those things to experience and to say you've done that. Maybe just the one day thing though.

Just wondered if anyone has done it, and would like to share their experience.
