The offaly lads were outside the Pale but faithful to England according to Wiki.
If you weren't so ignorant and studied your history you would know the Offaly lads did their bit unlike the Galway lads queuing up to join the Connaught Rangers

A lot of good fixtures there. Hopefully no weather disruptions. It would be nice if players being interviewed after could make an effort to speak their native language

All quiet from the Shinnerbots. They'll accept Scapaticci being on the British payroll but are gobsmacked that Dessie the TV repairman has got away with getting the full monty from the Free State payroll

Can she play in goal?

Afraid not. She's great up front though.
Flanagan could show her how to do a bit of kicking

At least someone in Sinn Fein has a bit of cop on. Good man Dessie. Tell those gobshites that want to follow the average industrial wage shit to get a bit of sense. Anyone on the average industrial wage would jump at a chance of getting a TD's packet.
It will be fun seeing the usual crew trying to defend the Shinners about turn or is it one rule for the newbies and another for Adams old soldiers

So Keaney back on the panel and now Tom Ryan from Limerick has transferred to Cuala/Dublin - interesting summer beckons anyway
Absolutely. Gilroy seems intent on doing a good job. Danny Sutcliffe back, Paul Winters in good form. It looks like a united camp who have a good panel of players. A lot of these lads have had underage success and have played to all ireland finals,leinster finals and League finals. Not necessarily winning out but have the experience of meeting the best along the way

Read the story once, might have been Paidi's autobiography. If Kerry were playing say, Donegal in the league, Micko made sure to land into the Kerry dressing room afterwards with a couple of "Dun na nGall" O'Neills balls under his arms. And the league was a ball-nicking exercise for him.
Or when he was with Kildare and coming of the dressing room before the game. He met the referee and said "I glad to see you here today. We will need a good strict referee"
The ref was delighted with the praise from Micko.
Result Kildare win with a few soft frees


Referee management. We all do it to varying degrees and with varying degrees of success. It's an art!
Ah yes but the Kerry lads have it done to a fine art. How many times when play has stopped have you seen Tomas O Se chatting with the linesman or umpire?
All tricks learned from Paidi and Micko

Of course there is a split in SF.  Take a look at the representatives in the Republic. Theres a lot of bandwagon jumpers there who would be perfectly happy in the Labour Party, FF or some of the left parties.

Most of them more talented than any representatives in the 6 counties.
That wouldnt be too high a standard to beat but at least the Northern representatives stay loyal to the party

France Gall also died recently. She was a French singer. One o the magazines said she was "emporte par le chagrin" which roughly means "taken away by dissatisfaction with life" . Probably the same for poor Dolores.
Speculation

Wasn't DeValera anti treaty?
He was from 1921 to 1926 when he started Fianna FŠil and decided to accept the Treaty's and Free State's existence and work within it.

As was Sean Lemass of the "slightly constitutional" Fianna Fail.  A man who didn't like to talk about what he's done during the War of Independence "because people were killed".  Ah well, sure that's OK there, Sean.



...runs for cover!

Free staters don't want to be held to account for the blood shed in their name, they feel only the northern nationalists they abandoned and left to fend for themselves should feel shame in this regard.

Not once has the free state government ever issued any sort of remorse, apology or contrition for their shameful record during the Troubles. Only this week they have further rubbed salt into the wounds of the McAnespie family by refusing to publish the findings of a report they conducted on his murder.

This is the type of attitude that has consistently prevailed down south towards northern nationalists.

Deflect deflect. INCOMING BULLSHIT

There will be a lot of happy Scousers in the dole office tomorrow

Classy as ever
Well done
Thanks, much appreciated

Was being sarcastic, didnít factor in your IQ
So letís just keep it simple.
I would say your biggest problem with Liverpool residents is a large portion of them is of Irish descent.
In previous post you seem to perceive northern nationalists in the same skewed and inaccurate way
Donít think a have read such bigotry from anyone up north
You make Gregory Campbell look balanced.
You are a shinning example that trash talk is not consistent with job status or place of residence and
 Alcohol consumption
Some people are just born tacky

Haven't you some McElduff movies you could be watching

Liverpool thread
Take your disgusting bile somewhere else
Amazing to see you so fond of the Liverpool gang. Plenty of Scouser squaddies did tours in your neck of the woods

That's very sad. A very good friend of mine is a Coventry fan, and I remember in the mid 80s the chant he used to sing incessantly.

"Nice one Cyrille, Nice one son,
Nice one Cyrille, let's have another one"

was that originally for Cyril Knowles of Spurs? Regis was good... very strong. Sad he is gone so young. RIP

It was originally a song for Cyril Knowles of Spurs and made the Top 20. He died aged 47.
Similar Jim Holton of Man Utd died aged 41.
