There's a lad Pickering on his profile page now just throwing in all sorts of comments "murdering bastard" and sticking up links to Belfast live
Thatís smartÖ. Anything posted on social media can be used by the defence to try and get the case thrown outÖ

Exactly. Let the law run it's course.

Just immensely sad for the family the whole thing.

Some of those posting on his fb page....like seriously...but then when I see their profiles I'm not really surprised

Don't see any posts to his page.

Glen took the FK before refs whistle. What is the sanction here?
They didn't.

Are we going to replay every game in which refs make a mistake?
No only those where the rules say the offence/mistake is serious enough to warrant a reply.

The probability of Glen scoring a goal was low.
The probability of scoring a goal in the last kick of the game is always low, but it still happens frequently enough and for that reason you can't definitively say it wouldn't have happened here. After all, the odds were against Kilcoo scoring a goal at the death to win it last year but guess what happened? They did. You can't definitively say they would done so had Kilmacud an extra defender in the danger area that day too. So "probability" has precisely NOTHING to do with the debate.

After the bore fest of that Tommy Tiernan interview with empty vessel Roy Keane, it was a return to form for TT this Saturday night with Patrick Kielty and 2 others who he managed to get to their story with ease. It was a good chat with Kielty, though he does suffer somewhat from the nordie syndrome  that  'nordies know better', that 'no one understands us and what we had to go through', and a tad condescending about the Irish ladies football team celebrations in the immediate aftermath of their magnificence in reaching the WC Finals.
Regardless, the show was riveting from beginning to end.

Yea he only had a father shot dead, so he is hardly qualified to talk about what the north had to come through. He really ought to wind his neck in. Arrogant of the nordies to think they have a better understanding of the conflict they lived through than the people south of the border who, after all, watched so many Section 31 censored news reports about it.
So obviously when you have a people spoon fed on a diet of censored adulterated news and middle Ireland LLS nonsense, is it not a wonder that so many southern folk supported the H Block hunger strikers (albeit starting with a trickle), voted for them the polls  and political support for the Republican Party has steadily risen over the last 20 or so years in spite of the persistent campaign to isolate and 'criminalise' Sinn Fein.
As Bernadette McAliskey responded to a condescending question put to her about a then recent H Block Dublin protest march being populated with 'rent a crowd' from the north,  she replied (virtually ripping into Gay Byrne) that if the people were more informed and not subject to such censorship and blatant anti republican RTE portrayals, they just might be able to make different more reasoned opinions
As regards Kielty, I fully respect and admire the man but just because he lost his father does not mean that I have to support his (imo) cringeworthy comment re the Irish ladies team post match dressing room celebrations and because I have that opinion does not mean I think he isn't qualified to talk about 'the north'.  I said that the interview and whole show was riveting, what more praise can be given?

Jesus, effin' nordies and their martyrdom ;D

So you're still maintaining that "nordies" don't know better about the conflict they lived through than those who didn't live through it?

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling

Even compare  the Managers before the match....Fossa manager with humour and smiles laughing away

Then the Clarkes manager asked if they'll be ultra defensive due to Clifford's responded dead serious with a frown:

"No, That's only levelled at us because we're from Tyrone, we'll play football"

No humour, no "we tried to tell the Cliffords the game had been moved to Parnell Park"

As someone who works on and off in Dublin for years they see us as humourless, serious heads and football wise they think Tyrone are prickly,  always have a persecution complex, thugs who are humourless.

As they naturally turn off from the North on the News the only time they hear us in many cases is through Sport.....its actually a bigger issue as its going to be a factor in a Unity referendum.

We need a charm offensive at all levels.....mad as this sounds

Before everyone gets prickly with your backs up, actually think about it. I'll be in Dublin in the morning and lads will be going on about the same shite as always about that game today
Crawler! If you want to live your life trying to become worthy of a bit approval from a crowd of partitionist free staters, then fire away. I think I'll just maintain a healthy "f**k them" approach.

You're talking as if SF are some sort of ultra squeaky clean political party and not one up to its eyes in murder and criminality.

SF as a party is currently involved in murder and criminality? Care to elaborate?

Hereís an interesting one...

McDonald is registered with the electoral commission as the leader of SF in NI.  :o

She isn't registered as the "leader of SF in NI". She is registered as the leader of SF. Probably because that's what she is.

Not that interesting is it?

I used to vote Sinn Fein to she came on board....Don't know what Adams was thinking when he decided on her.

OK. We'll just ignore how they've grown to be comfortably the largest party in Ireland since she became leader then ::)

Mcdonald f**k all up here, I wouldn't vote for her, What's the point in Michelle O'Neill if she needs backing every time she has to met the UK govt. Did McGuinness need down south help when he was in the same position.

Not sure what planet you were living on during the Adams/McGuinness era but they routinely met the British Government together. Can you recall a single instance where they were told that they couldn't both attend a meeting with a British government minister? I certainly can't.

Are the rumours of a young player from omagh looking to move to kc true?

Very strange situation to be honest. Hard to fathom. Are KC actually willing to accept the transfer?

From seeing who the omagh manager is I presume itís bullshit
Apparently itís true
Nobody prepared to name the player then?

I see caught on video in a nightclub shifting the face of a young lad who isn't his partner. Personally I couldn't care less

Why bother posting then, he can do what he wants


Imagine someone coming onto a thread to announce they aren't interested in the topic being discussed. I remember somebody doing something similar on the Celtic thread recently:

Never will get the Celtic thing.grew out of it at 15.

Ireland's Future needs less grey haired cranky old men. Some of those lads are about as effective selling unity as Arlene will be selling the Union. Freshen it up with younger, diverse voices.

Doesn't look like a collection of "grey haired cranky old men" to me  ???



I did not mean lineup, and thereís been excellent speakers. I mean those running the show, who are essentially the face of Irelandís future. I donít see any 20/30 somethingís. Thatís the generation that will bring a United Ireland. I donít think thereís anyone under 40. Most are over 50. They should be there, too, of course. But it should be freshened up with younger voices running the show. Fortunately the Union side is doing the same thing with Arlene taking it upon herself to compete with Irelandís future. This happens in all walks of life when something is being advertised to younger people -  a bunch of boomers gather in a room to decide the strategy.

Fair enough point that it would be nice to see a few under 40 years of age organising the thing, but I don't think it's fair or accurate to characterise those running Ireland's Future as "grey haired cranky old men" either:

https://irelandsfuture.com/who-we-are/

Always easy to criticise, but it's far more useful to be supportive. To me, that's far from a group of cranky old men. Brian Feeney is possibly the only one that comes close to meeting that description and any civic group's attempts to argue the merits of ending partition would be weaker by his omission. He's incredibly articulate.
