Phil and Bryson making a hames of their answers to questions on the LIV tourÖ how does the PR team not have better answers to the questions theyíre being asked?


They must have used up their budget on player contracts and hired interns for the PR team!

Hi Lads

Just a quick one for anyone out there who can give me some advise, it would be greatly appreciated!

Basically me and my girlfriend have both graduated from uni (herself this year and me last year) and are looking to head over to america for a year or two to work and live. I have been in contact with a number of companies over there and they are more than happy to offer me a job in my sector. What sort of visa should i be looking for? I have heard that is is very difficult for a company to sponsor an employee to come over.

Also, the J1 visa's and esta visa are only short term, i know you can only stay in the country for 90 days at a time before leaving it over a period of 2 years.


H-1B visa (I think)... a complete lottery.

If he went onto Estonia who would challenge him, it would be another Ukraine.
Are they not in NATO?

And ... you honestly think the yanks or the Brits are going go after him if he strays into Estonia?

They are legally obligated to

Again - And .... - they certainly won't.

The whole concept of NATO is built around Article V, Iím not sure how they could justify ignoring it if it was invoked.

The real crisis will be who will stick up Russian flegs and whoíll take up Ukrainian flegs along the peace wall in Belfast
Surely everybody hates us we don't care would have to be loyalism/Russia

Should get decent prices from the flag manufacturers seeing as the colours are the same.

My god - you all had a club rep at the meeting when this was voted for. Obviously the majority of the vote wins lads - itís an age old tradition. Instead of coming up with problems this system has - how about giving some solutions we can use going forwardÖ We canít play the full league - that is very evident - so thatís not a solution. In theory playing a game every Friday and some Friday/Monday fixtures would be fantastic. But what about the traditional reasons for getting matches off - stag parties, weddings, funerals of club legends, hurling etc etc - where do we squeeze these games in?? THERE ARE NO WEEKENDS FREE!! The complainers at various clubs will complain no matter what - but donít jump on a bandwagon just for the sake of it. Make sure ur club is not on the wrong side of the league split by putting in the necessary work on the training pitch and keeping points or having no points wonít have any impact on ya.



Iím actually not complaining about the system. Itís a seismic improvement on the mooted 16 team D1.

I just find it strange that points are carried across from a qualifying competition to a final competition. Does this happen in any other sport / league you can think of?

SPL split not work like that?

I think the same happens for soccer in the north.

Are you serious about Pete McGrath taking Burren thirds? If this is true then we are on a slippery slope in the association than I thought we were. What is wrong with all the Burren coaches who won an array of underage titles.
Yeah I sure am serious. No expense spared up the road!!!
ALL the burren coaches u speak off are tied up elsewhere. Iím speaking of coaches only - they are like every other club where people are there for the craic not to coach.. talking to a Burren man tonight who said - Neil Coulter won u16 paul mcgirr and minor St. Paulís was up in Killeavy but is currently with Benny in Rostrevor
Eoghan McCartan and Steven OíHare won feile and runner up in feile are current senior coaches in Burren (along with McCrory, Adams and now Pete).
Michael magill (point man) is in Louth with a club along with big Anthony Cunningham- Stefan White won minor championship last year is at Cooley Kickams, Pat Cunningham (Ballymartin man) is with Down minors and Seŗn OíHare has quit coaching.
Despite all this - they will still field at every age group and with 2 teams at some levels - fair play to them. Unlike other clubs - everyone in burren wants to be involved - they donít mind not working with their own kids and in the last ten years they have had some amount of success at underage. Personally I still think it will be 2-3 years before they are winning senior titles again.

they should be ashamed, where will all this stop. Soon they will be employing Jim McGuiness to coach their u12 team. Real Burren people must be embarrassed, not the blow ins from the Point.

Itís an open secret that Jim Gavin has that role sealed up next year.

Hot of the press
 Kilcoo is appealing the sending off on Saturday and a delegation of high-ranking club officials will be in headquarters this weekend.

Itís a shame for choc that heís missing, but itíll be yet another absolute stain on the GAAís disciplinary processes if an appeal is successful.

For if smacking a man in the jaw on national tv doesnít deserve a suspension, then we should just get rid of suspensions completely.

Heís only got one person to blame!

He won't have faced anything like he will against kilcoo. They'll be like flies round shite. They won't allow him to dictate things. Same for Glass.

He will have faced better teams than Kilcoo throughout the years.  There will be nothing new in this game that he hasnt faced before.

I donít think the comment was in reference to the quality of footballer heíd be up against.

The amount of Irish folk reading, listening to siding with the right wing these days is very surprising. They really are making hay (someone on here predicted as much at the start of the pandemic)
Canít blame them with all the other gobshites supporting lockdowns

I donít know of anyone who supports lockdowns, Iím for taking the vaccine and moving on, but if this new mutation causes more deaths, then some restrictions need to be looked at, more community testing followed by isolating if infected
The headcases dont want restrictions or the vaccines when it's clear that we need one or the other. My preference would be that people vax up and we don't need to go in and out of restrictions as they leave terrible uncertainty for business owners and employees, especially around hospitality and retail. I had to use my Covid app last Saturday when out for lunch and not once did I feel like I was being asked for my papers in Nazi Germany.
Felt that way to me tbh. Disgusting.

Then youíre a clown.

One man's clown is another man's deep thinker.
