The people whining about Mickey Harte etc getting involved in a political issue are the same ones who wanted the GAA to come out in support of hunger strikers etc

Sure wasnt Enda and a gang over in Ruislip at the Mayo game campaigning against Brexit outside the stadium.

And the (hammered) Mayo fan was interviewed afterwards by RTE complaining about all the foreigners coming in taking the jobs.

Mickey Harte is entitled to his opinion. He is recognized and respected North and South, but why in Gods name (if he/she exists) would anyone cast their vote based on what the manager of a football team has to say on the matter.

I’ll correct myself. You’re the real king of the bad take.

Dont you have a sheep to be attending to, or a Brendan Shine concert to attend rather than criticizing very intelligent and meaningful posts like mine?
It always comes back to the sheep

To hell with the future
Let's live in the past

The smugness of those whose freedom was won by militant republicans and who didn't have to live in the partitioned part of the country never ceases to amaze  ::)

Let's keep on living in 1922. It will really improve our situation

The Provos planted bombs with the support of the majority of the Catholic/Nationalist community.

So how do you explain the SDLP being the biggest nationalist party for years until well after the Provo ceasefire?

Just allow for the fact he is one of the Shinners useful idiots brainwashed by Adams

Wenger brought some of the greatest players into the Premiership. Vierra, Henry, Bergkamp, Pires etc. He could still end the season with a trophy.
Carlo Ancelotti would be a good choice as replacement

Bruce Rioch signed Bergkamp
I stand corrected. Winger put some great teams together though with a good mix of English and continental players

Cannot believe FF are still a force in the Republic after nearly sinking the country a few years back. Jaysus, people have short memories. I know the SDLP are in dire straits, but to hitch their wagon to that shower of corrupt clowns shows how bad things are for wee Colum. Saying that, McCrossan would fit right in with FF, the snivelling little shit

When it comes to politics, people have short memories. Thatcher and her Tory's wreck the place, then the Brits couldn't get them back quick enough.
People have short memories. The Provos plant bombs ,murder innocent men women and children, disappear so called informers on the instruction of the worst informer of all in a hierarchy riddled with informers and still people will vote for their political wing. It isn't only FF have a history.

"Would you believe I have an entire thread dedicated to me on gaaboard?"
"Do you, Joe?"
"Oh aye, it's true. 700 PAGES long."
"Hang on, I'm just looking at it here and it's only 300 pages long, Joe."
"Did I ever tell you about the time myself and big Geoffrey McGonigle went on safari and he tried to smuggle a giraffe onto the plane home?"

FFS! It wasnt a giraffe, it was an elephant. Dungiven use it now for bringing young lads to matches and the elephants obeys instructions given in Irish

I have been in Irish bars and clubs all over London and have seen grown men and women cry when the anthem is broadcast before big matches every Summer. Even though they are gone from Ireland for many years these men and women still want the link with "home"

The Israeli army posted a statement on Twitter on Saturday apparently accepting full responsibility for the killings a day earlier of 15 Palestinians as thousands took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza.

The army then quickly deleted the admission – as more evidence of war crimes by its soldiers came to light – but not before a copy was made by the human rights group B’Tselem.

The now-deleted tweet from the official @IDFSpokesperson account stated: “Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed.”

Barely makes a ripple here, think I heard it mentioned briefly on one news report.
You do realise there is a Royal Wedding coming up and Vogue Williams has a new hairstyle. The media have more to cover than conflicts in the Middle East
