If Stormont is to be preserved, so will the six counties (even the SDLP concede we're different from the rest of Ireland), so I see no great practical difference from the status quo,not that unionists will ever agree to this or any other form of United Ireland

Anyway, don't talk about the occupied six - they don't exist according to some big GAA men on this board

In other words Unionists would still rule the six counties due to their inbuilt majority,with none of the current checks and balances in place.Not that they will agree to waive their British identity for any form of United Ireland in any event or under any circumstances

I think you mean Unionists would still rule 3 counties / constituencies.
And the dual Nationality feature if the GFA will if course be still there for residents of the North East Autonomous region of the All Ireland State.

No, by the time we have a united Ireland it means we've reached a nationalist majority in the north. If Stormont were retained in its present form it would mean that nationalists would have the upper hand in the north but the same checks and balances would be in place to keep power sharing. This time instead of our ones being the protected minority, their ones would be the protected minority.

The counties in the north were abolished in 1973 as far as local government is concerned. Some organizations like the Post Office and the GAA continue to use them as geographical markers though, but they no longer exist as political entities.

Wise advice.

No maybe about it, actually.

Did he use the old Betty Davis to Wogan line? To be honest, I'd think more of a guest if they did actually say it.

Looks like Gooch told a bit a lie on the Late Late to get out of a sticky corner!

http://www.hoganstand.com/ArticleForm.aspx?ID=276642


Joe Brolly has flatly rejected claims that he apologised to Colm Cooper for criticising his upcoming testimonial dinner.

Appearing on The Late Late Show last night to promote his new autobiography 'Gooch', Cooper claimed Brolly texted him to apologise for comments he had made about the groundbreaking corporate dinner in Dublin on October 27, which is expected to raise 250,000 and has greatly divided opinion within the GAA.

Two charities will benefit from a proportion of the proceeds - the Kerry Cancer Support Group and Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children in Dublin as well as Kerry GAA and Cooper's club Dr Crokes.

Writing in the Sunday Independent recently, Brolly claimed the event had gone against the amateur ethos of the GAA.

"It is a great pity Colm has done this. The point of the GAA is supposed to be volunteerism and community activism. The question is supposed to be, 'What can I do?', not 'What can I get out of it?'," he wrote.

"As an icon of Irish sport, he could have set an example of altruism, but instead has chosen to enrich himself. What could and should have been a night the GAA could have taken great pride in, has instead become something cheap and self-serving."

Cooper said last night: "On a serious note, Joe actually sent me a text this week to say 'sorry about all the fuss'. He said he wishes there wasn't the reaction that there was and that it's gone overboard. And he's apologising for it.

"So he's obviously changed his tune since. And he fully respects that I'm entitled to have a testimonial dinner if I want. There's players doing dinner dances and speaking after events. There's brand ambassadors, there's players doing launches all the time. So unfortunately for the GAA, there are players earning money. So if that's the argument, I don't really get it."

However, Brolly later took to Twitter to say he hadn't apologised to his fellow Sunday Game panellist.

"I didn't apologise to Colm for anything I said. I stand by every word. I said I didn't intend him to be demonised as a result.

"This is a serious principled debate. I said face to fact to Colm he was wrong in doing this. I stand by that absolutely."
