There are,but the unionist bloc is overwhelmingly opposed to gay marriage and this is another deterrent to unity.

I'd be fairly certain that a majority of unionists would be pro marriage equality. A healthy majority

Maybe not?  From the same Lucid Talk poll that Owen quotes below, on marraige equality:

If a referendum was held tomorrow which way would you vote (UNIONISTS ONLY)

For:  37.5%
Against: 56.25%
DK: 6.25%

If a referendum was held tomorrow which way would you vote (NATIONALISTS & REPUBLICANS ONLY)

For:  91.4%
Against: 7.00%
DK: 1.6%

Our infrastructure has been way ahead of the South since our motorways were built in the 1960s

Actually, he hadn't made clear that he was referring to a specific vote in parliament on 11th September 2017.

This vote was enhanced by 7 Labour MPs joining the Tories and a considerable number of them abstaining.

Which is why the argument that SF going to Westminster will make a blind bit of difference to Brexit, or anything else important is complete nonsense.

GAA Discussion / Re: Gooch Cooper testimonial dinner

"That will always be the elephant in the room," he said. "Like, the aim of the night wasn't to raise funds for Colm Cooper albeit that people might have different views on that. We wanted to have a GAA celebration because we've seen all these sporting stars in Ireland have these nights."

Does Colm think we're feckin stupid?

"We're saying, 'Well our GAA people are very much to the forefront of every community so why shouldn't we be doing if for our own people?' - so that's where it's kind of breaking ground a little bit. And obviously the charities were very much to the fore of it as well.

Nearly forgot there Colm!

I see Judith Gillespie,ex RUC Deputy Chief Constable,is a hotly tipped contender! I recall her learning Irish under the LIOFA scheme up here a few years ago.Well if Northerners can be Freestate Presidents and managers of the Free State Football team....

Reports say the salary will go up to €300k.  O'Sullivan was paid €180k

Do the DUP actually know what Deal they got from the tories. I feel they are going to learn a very hard lesson on dealin with the brits.

The £1bn needs to be approved by a vote in Westminster and there is no date set for vote yet

They've built up a bit of a reputation at under age, let's see if the DUP can hack it a senior level.

We'd need one for General Gerry by himself if you wanted to be fair.

I think this is what's called whataboutery ::)

More shite. O Neill and Keane haven't a clue and the players are brutal - a bad combination

Brady will always have that goal against Italy. Otherwise he's useless.

Give up Orior
Wise advice.

Which maybe you should also take.

No maybe about it, actually.

Have you googled what the EU is Fr Dougal?

Davis and Evans yeah, but who else would make the ROI team. The rest of the team are not as strong as ROI and yet they are playing better stuff.
I dont expect  ireland to play nice football but decent stuff isnt beyond tbe realms pf possibility. I watched Burnley v Chelsea and Spurs with a large helping of Irish lads. Despite the massive gulf in class they actually passed the ball at times.
Even if you go back to front quickly like Burnley the ball should resemble a pass and not a panicked lash it away.
Harry Arter may not pick a killer pass but he gas good passing skills and he stands up v well for his club. Then he gets slated for Ireland who kick it into the clouds.
Hoolohan woukd gave nade no difference if the ball from deep was like that either. It gas to something they are told to do.
The players are not great but they are not shite. I am not asking for FIFA 2017 stuff but just sonething that doesnt have lads terrorized by a pass.

Are you serious CS.  Do you think the north would swap any of their team for the dung that's turning out for the south??

Don't you hate it when Nordies are over sensitive?

No, it's very amusing.

This is not a case of "going out of our way to be offended".

Yes, it is.

Ah, I get it. You're a 26-county free stater who couldn't care less about your fellow countrymen. Would you be happy if the Ulster Championship consisted of only three teams?
Nice little rant there.

Pity for you that it doesn't bear any resemblance to reality.

So, you're admitting you're just a wind up merchant?
To be fair, what else does the ridiculousness of your "non-WUM" WUM reaction to something so utterly irrelevant deserve other than ridicule?

You just don't get it.

Give up Orior, you're dealing with someone whose grasp on geography and politics is so developed that he thinks Europe and the EU are the same thing.
