Robbie's 100th Cap. Robbies's son. Common enough for those sort of occasions.

Her Mother is from Laois, that's where she gets her good looks from

Here in the Aviva, good atmosphere, it's great to have matches back here finally, much better for soccer than Croke Park.
Oohhh close there from Messi

I never knew you couldn't be offside from a kickout. I don't think Shay knew either :)

Duff just missed a chance. Then Argentina score. The fans in the stadium don't like it. Was it offside?

Good view from the upper tier of the douth stand.

I heard that too.

Who knew the wee Scot was such a genius on the rules? Nice one Ray.

I wouldn't usually be looking in here, but I wanted to know what people think of the national broadcaster referring to the Argentinian national team as "the Argies" in its sports bulletins. It's my understanding that this is a disrespectful term that originated in the British tabloids at the time of the Malvinas war. I certainly don't think you'd hear it on the BBC, just as you wouldn't hear them referring to eye-ties or krauts. But RTÉ's standards of sub-editing and basic competence in the language seem to have sunk so low that they don't even know (or care) what they're saying.

Does RTÉ even have a department that looks after language guidelines and pronunciation or the like? I'd say they definitely don't but for one thing. Everyone on RTÉ seems to have been trained to pronounce the "R" in "RTÉ" as "Arrrrr", which nobody else in the country does, that I know of. My guess is that the old codger who runs language and pronunciation has forgotten everything else except the importance of "Arrrr" and that's all new recruits get taught. And of course he can't be fired or even told what to do because he's a civil servant.

Sorry - I didn't know where this was going when I started.

YOUR RIGHT NO ONE CARES
As long as they make the selves clearly understood . it does not matter how they pronounce words or spell them for that matter. it is the main strength of the english language .
refudiate my point if you must
If you make yourself understood, you're always speaking well. Moliere
