I assume syphilis has similar opinions on founders of all political parties in Ireland? All founded with the gun, all unapologetic for it. Another stupid post.

Apples and oranges, as always some wish that 1916 is easily mappable to 1986 but sadly it isn’t. There’s a reason Dev and Collins left SF and the IRA behind.

Do you really believe the Auctioneers and Builders party are going to shore up the Blueshirts after the next election?
And when are you going to read the history of the 6 Cos between  1922 and 1971?

They will do a deal again if needs be, even though policywise they make perfect government partners history and a lack of humility on FF’s part prevents them from forming a government.

That they were more willing to cut a deal with each other than even explore coalition options with SF tells you how little their legacy has been normalised.

If FF and FG get as many votes as you suggest the will of the people is overwhelmingly for a center-right government, not the mad policies of SF and that’s before you get to their role as the political wing of a terrorist organization.

Anyone entertaining thoughts of SF being in the next government is living in a fantasy land. That goes for you, Main Street and anyone else contemplating those notions.

If after the next election  we have FF and FG with about 50 seats each and SF with 30-35........
Syfīn needs to read up on the history of the 6 Cos prior to 1971.

When FF propping up an FG government is preferable to both parties in lieu of dealing with SF you have your answer what will happen. You could do with reading up on your recent history rather than suggesting others do so.

SF are nailed on to lose seats with an ever-improving economy and someone as unsuitable and disliked as Mary Lou at the helm. This is the woman who was thrown out of the Dail a few weeks ago ffs. They are and will remain toxic to transfers.

Labour will hopefully hoover up enough of the votes from the independents and left-leaning voters departing SF to form a government with FG.

The less said about the drunken scrawl on the back of a napkin that was SF’s bailout and giveaway policies at the last two elections the better.

I know I shouldn't also but should FF be in a position to be the senior partner in a majority coalition government with SF after the next election, I think discussions about the politics and morality of the use of the gun in the recent war v all the forces that supported the planters, will conveniently be put on the back burner.

MM has already said he's not going to go into government with SF. The political damage for going against the will of the people and his own words would literally end his political career. Try again.

Syferus, you generally make a lot of good posts. However I feel you need to have lived in the north before making comments like you did earlier.
Growing up in the 70s & 80s, Catholics were 2nd Class citizens. That has now changed and whether we like it or not, it was people like Martin McGuiness that dragged us to where we are today.

McGuiness dragged Ireland backwards before he took a step forward. He can be commended for being more honest than Adams in his IRA role and trying his best to make amends in his later years but it's people like John Hume who never took up the gun that are the real heroes of the north.

SF over-taking the more reasonable nationalist parties in the north was something that set back the north in many ways. The two main unionist and republican parties now are both born of insular extremism. That is never the way forward for anything.

Honoring McGuiness is as turgid and regressive as honoring Paisley. Both are best forgotten.

So mcguinness had nompisitive contribution since 1990 ??

Whitewash and ignore history at your peril

Just because you start to mop up the blood you spilt it doesn’t mean you’re absolved from spilling it in the first place.

How long is a piece of string? Because if we go that route, then hardly any leader deserves honouring.

There’s a whole hell of a lot of difference between Enda Kenny and Martin McGuiness. One was a career politician, the other ran a terrorist organisation blowing up civilians and robbing banks when it saw fit an who did a bit of politics on the side.

The gun stoppped being an acceptable part of Irish politics a long time before people like McGuiness realised it and it’s the main reason no one will enter government with SF.

Total Republican shìtshow ignoring public sentiment to benefit big business. More than anything else Trump’s election has caused, this would have the nastiest long tail.

He's not soft centred  ;)

He's also five foot seven and a midfielder.

Just because he's black doesn't mean you're getting Kante #2. More creative player than that.

Thanks Syferus - I've never seen him play before

It's not that he's useless defending - from all I've heard he's an all-rounder but he could be as much a Courtiniho replacement as a Henderson-type replacement depending on how he's used.

In other words you’re as much in the dark as everyone else  ;D

No, he is mainly used as an attacking midfielder at RBL, which you can see very clearly in his goals and assist stats.

The reason there could be any doubt is because Liverpool is so woeful at the back that Klopp may be tempted to play him deeper in a less natural position.

I remember you trying to pull the same tone when I told you Kolasinac from the same league was a great buy - you’ve been quiet enough on that while he’s became one of the best full backs in the EPL.

The bit in bold suggests to me you are passing internet gained knowledge off as your own. Fair play to you if you watch enough German  football to know better and I apologise if so.. I vaguely remember a conversation before, didn't realise it was with you, I'd say the point I was trying to make was that in general us football fans talk shite and sometimes players that we know little about gain almost mythical qualities.

On Kolasinic, I have to say I've not noticed whether he's any good or not, he is in my fantasy team though and has been good for a few points.

The bit in bold is you trying to read far too much between the lines. If your only response is 'you know nuthin', it's no response at all.

General discussion / Re: Donegal to become part of UK?

How often do you hear of people visiting Ireland and doing the circuit from Dublin to Kerry to Galway and back? The government has traditionally done little to promote Donegal as a tourist destination, whether it’s through simple access issues via road/rail or advertising or whatever. We’re slightly trendy now due to attention from international off-the-beaten-track-type hype and Star Wars, but how long will that last? Even during the height of the Celtic Tiger, unemployment was still high there. The border fucked Donegal for decades.

Don't ruin it. Donegal is one the best places in the country for a weekend away.

Once you get past Cliffony on the N15 you may as well be entering another world. It's as unique a landscape as anything in the Burren or the King of Kerry but with far less Disneyification of everything else.

Your foot and hip have been fecked, like hell are you 100% Lee. Hip injuries are just something you manage, you never get back the same again even in the best case scenario.

The MS stuff is disgusting, though.

Nice kit, but the stars...?

Stars are always a nice touch in my opinion.
