Probably "Thousands Are Sailing" as the absolute favourite.
The other two would be "The Irish Rover" and "Turkish Song Of The Damned"
Don't know, but in the Irish Times today they said there were grave concerns for her life. As far as I know, she's still on life support. Horrendous.
Quote from: tonto1888 on November 29, 2023, 04:00:03 PMwhats the deal with Aontú

Aontú is a socially conservative party but, in my view, is fairly soft on immigration/ is afraid to rock that boat.

Yes, as Batman!!! says, 10 teams is a farce. Two groups of five, I assume? Are the leagues going to go back to 10 teams per division, as well? All these extra games, and seemingly we have no refs, either?

My missus is a teacher, and when we were first married, I used to rib her relentlessly about what a handy number she was on. Eventually, our children started going to GAA activities, and I was inevitably roped in to lead the group w/ my own young lad in it. Well, it was only once a week at the start, but that one hour of the week was more stressful for me than the whole rest of it at my normal work! Many times my assistant wouldn't show up, and I was left w/ 20-25 u6s on my own. Complete nightmare! Also - the parents! Sheesh! So, I've definitely revised my opinion: teachers deserve all the time off they get!

Quote from: Rossfan on November 28, 2023, 01:43:39 PMCould I point out that applicants for International Protection are not illegal.
If their application is rejected and they don't leave and don't appeal then they are illegally in the State.
Anither example woukd be someone who'd got a visa for a term and didn't leave when it expired.

No Irish person would do the likes of that anywhere of course🙄.

Never. But we dont talk about that do we............

So, because we have Irish in American and Australia over-staying their visas, we should let all illegals here stay on?
It's like "because we already have murderers in Ireland, we should let in a heap more".

Obviously, it's up to Americans to deport those who are in their country illegally.

By the way, tonto1888 (I think it was you who asked), the 7% figure for forced deportation comes from an Irish Times article from earlier this year looking at figures for the last 5 years. Unfortunately, it's now behind a paywall but, as I recall, there was something like a further 7% that voluntarily left the state. However, these were never followed up on, so could in reality be less.

Hmmm. Remember I said only 7% of failed asylum seekers were deported? Turns out our Algerian friend was one that slipped that porous net. He was arrested and issued with a deportation order in 2003. Instead, the NGO fiends helped him fight the order, and he was given citizenship. Imagine that!! And the bugger was caught with knives in May, and all!! The mind boggles. How lax are we?!!

Quote from: whitey on November 27, 2023, 11:30:01 PMThe stabbings occurred in her constituency where she romped home with 35% of the first preference votes in 2020 (equal to the first preference total for next 3 candidates combined)

She is accountable to her constituents
Plenty of legitimate ways for citizens to express their views, but not by haranguing their politician walking to their car.

Well if she is refusing to address their concerns, she only has herself to blame if  they harangue her
Concerns of whoever?  racists dullards? Mary Lou does have to answer to blow-in dumb as fck racists.

Ha ha! But we all have to answer to blow-in immigrants? Get a life.
Quote from: Armagh18 on November 27, 2023, 11:24:07 PMShe'd wanna rethink the open borders shite they're pedalling.

She really would. An awful lot of people who vote for SF assume they're nationalist, and have the back of the 'salt of the earth' Irish working class. Not a bit of it.
She should be representing her constituents.

Scoreline looks bad, but I think there was only two points in it going into the last five minutes.

Quote from: Rossfan on November 25, 2023, 09:28:25 AMHe was an EU National, probably here for years.

2013 he came over. Was working on a building site when he got injured and started to claim disability benefits. He must have had legal status then

Aye injured ffs, do you believe in Santa? Bad back but able to ride about on a bike stalking women and hold down one and murder them. He seemed like a real good guy. He probably did the usual roma/Slovak move of working for a bit to show a work history and the downing tools when he was entitled to benefits.

No idea. Only going by what I read online. Nor do I have any idea what the usual Roma/slovak stereotype is.

Yeah, right - pull the other one.

You just had a chuckle about a Far Right nut job roaring abuse at Sinn Fein.

Yes, how dare you chuckle at someone calling out Sinn Fein for being traitors!

Since citizenship is handed out fairly handily, I think it's better to look at numbers born outside the country - and that stands at 20%.
Is there any research? Yes, there is. Here's a link:

Personally, I'm not sure those predictions are right. However, and as I mentioned in this thread before, you only have to look at what's happening in the cities in Britain to see that the demographics are only going one way.
