They're only happy when they have a big chip on their shoulder so this will please them

Your point is that you are talking through your hole as usual

You would actually be surprised at the number of grants available when a county had a good project well presented and planned. Grants will come from Croke Park Provincial boards and county boards. There will also be funds made available from National lottery and local authority sources. It is important to get a good financial manager on-board who knows how to source funds.

You think it will burn out MR?

My experience is many of them hold onto the tradition and even now many in the middle third or second half of their lives still live for this week.

No holidays of any sort planned as they would miss the celebrations.

And their kids are going the same way unfortunately

Wouldn't agree about the no holidays bit.
Check out a few of the Rangers crew in Benidorm etc with their Twelfth marches

Delighted for the Rossies but any of the usual gang that I know travelled in hope rather than confidence. They are in Croke Park now and should go up united. Sheerin and co should accept that McStay has delivered a Connacht title, football in August and a great boost to the county

NI economy to grow 1% this year and 0.9% next year, and that's before any Brexit disruption, which isn't very good when the population is growing by 0.5%. Incredibly, NI is growing more slowly than GB!
http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/business/news/northern-irelands-economy-to-grow-by-just-09-in-2018-study-finds-35895028.html

With the ROI growing at 4% this year and much the same next year people will begin to notice the gap, while of course the public finance gap is only increased by the DUP deal and NI being behind GB.
NI is stagnating. There is no growth driver. For years being part of the UK was advantageous. Not now

Has any party initiated a proper analysis of all possible economic programs that could be developed under a single state ? And I don't mean the magic beans "make the rich pay" policy of the "left and "so called left" also known as Sinn Fein

Well done Rossies and McStay. Maybe all the "experts" in the county and those players who thought they were bigger than the county will slink back under whatever rock they crawled out from. Roscommon need to be united and respect the management put in place. Theyhave a day in Croke Park now with the opportunity of kicking on to a semi final.

British borrowing more, saving less.

last year's growth in spending was driven by debt.
Brits are not getting payrises.
It is time for a new economic system..

Living on the streets by March 19 ... I've got  a few months then
If the thing goes ahead the pain won't be distributed evenly across society. Economic damage usually hits weaker members of society like unskilled workers, single mothers, kids from poor families, old people with no property, the mentally ill etc

You need to secure a decent wine supply. ...

If? surely its set in stone, Brexit means Brexit... out on our ear, skid row, back to the middle ages, internet scrapped, coal mines opened up, people only living till they are in their 50's, single mothers put to work and their kids taken off them, as for property, it will be wooden huts, no hols, and no health care or education
About time. Do you realise how difficult it is to get a good chimney sweep? Some of those under nourished young kids wil be ideal for the job

What is the final sticking points that is delaying every thing?

SF aware that most of their voters think the Assembly is a busted flush.

Or maybe they realise that winning seats is no good when the Dup can walk into Number 10 and start calling the shots. No pun intended

Despite League of Ireland teams producing much higher quality football on better pitches than years before many people still prefer to spend their money on Sky subscriptions or trips to Annfield Old Trafford etc. Clubs like Cork Dundalk Sligo have shown that with good local support they can get results and provide great entertainment for the fans. The gates that traditional Dublin clubs like the Shams Boys and Pats get are very poor considering the support there is in the city for soccer. An extra thousand on their gates would make a massive difference

Cultural Nationlist Unionists :D :D......

Im not accusing anyone ...tho I think its fair to say Quislings would be more accurate a term

That's the type of sneering that does not create a warm UI house for a significant number of the NI population who do not vote for the Unionist political parties and consider themselves to be Irish. Probably less acceptable when it comes from someone who does not live in this part of the world if I am correct in reading your posts.

 ;D ;D Ah Bless your a sensitive soul TYP. What has my location got to do with my comments and how you see them? Anyway how do you know Im not a bot?

So lets thrash this out..... You consider yourself Nationalist but not a Unionist?

The very definition of a Nationalist in NI is someone who wants a single sovereign country reigning over the entire island, primarily from an administration based in Dublin. You've explicitly said that you dont want that so....you cant be one, cultural (whatever that means) or otherwise.

The definition of a Unionist in NI is someone who wants the 6 counties and indeed the other countries on the island of Britian to remain under the sovereignty of the UK. Which you've said is your preference.... so I think that defines you as a Unionist within the common understanding in NI.

So which are you? If your a Nationalist I could only presume your a British Nationalist, now couple that with not being a Unionist I could only presume that you wish the UK to be ruled as one country with the countries within and their regional administrations within dissolved.

It looks like your trying to say is there is this group of people that I associate with and do the same thing a but I'm actually against the thing that binds us all together because your worried about a bunch of thugs?

More verbal diarrhoea.

I think a NI with a nationalist majority would be more likely to be decent simply because nationalists are the locals and don't have the persecution complex that goes with being the settlers.Anywhere that was colonised by outsiders the outsiders have problems.

I dont see any great trend among Shiiners to extend the hand of friendship. Their attitude to the opening of Croke Park to rugby etc, the admission of PSNI to the GAA and their triumphalism following the Assembly elections show they are no better than the other side.

That's right  ::)

Ever wondered why Nationalist led councils in the North are more inclined to have sharing agreements in place with the Mayoral type roles and why Unionist led ones don't?

Yip, its those baddies in Sinn Fein.

Avondhu star, educate yourself and form your opinions on the North somewhere other than the Irish Independent and RTÉ.
I was thinking that so well said.

Who voted against Croke pk being opened to rugby?
Who voted against admitting PSNI
Who was jumping up and down against the dup and now have got their hole opened by Arlene and are doing their best to crawl back into Stormont with Arlene still boss?

Shinners had no vote on Croke Park being opened and IIRC Cork CB also voted against it. Never knew Frank Murphy was a Shinner.
See first part of above. The timeline for the allowing of security force personnel to join the GAA was before the implementation of the Patten report and IIRC was Seany Kelly being the lick ado politician that he finally became.
Alliance, the UUP and the SDLP were the first to jump up and down about Arlene when the RHI scandal broke. In fact the Shinners were being criticised for not jumping soon enough and when Martin did he and the Shinners were singled out, but not Naomi Long, Mike TV or Eastwood, why was that?
Will they go back into Stormont with Arlene at the helm? Who knows, but you'll be ready with your ill informed views either way that (a) if the do go back, they've been outmaneuvered by Arlene, blah blah blah or (b) they don't go back so they're then solely responsible for direct rule from Westminster blah blah blah.

Shinners have their faults but you just regurgitate the same nonsense time and time again with little fact to support.

Now you feel better. Just a little lie down in a dark room for an hour until Nurse comes around
