I seen him in the Kings Hall in 1993, great show.

We are going to the "Bat Out of Hell" musical in the Grand Opera House in August, now that's a sign of getting old!!

That'll be a brilliant show, probably sold out, or will be in the next day or so, My mate was kicked out of that concert at the Kings Hall, got into a bit scuffle with someone who had his girl on his shoulders and he couldnt see, a short arse like me! as he was getting carried out, Bat out of Hell was playing, summed him up lol!

Yah, looking forward to that night out, will be a bit poignant now.

Why does it not surprise me you and your mates getting into a scuffle

Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING

hear the Derry clubs looking back into juvenile and reserve leagues, be a good move for everyone that.

Agreed! Thereís a vast contrast in ability level within the leagues so this helps even it out a bit more. I think the external counties in our senior hurling leagues are badly needed kept too! I heard tell there was discussions as to whether they should be ďkept in.Ē Would be disastrous if they were removed! Eg St Galls and Sarsfields in Div 2 sit well at their level- if we remove the Down teams (for example) from Div 1, you end up with a lot  of mismatches in Div 1 and a waste of time for everyone concerned.
Iíd actually suggest pushing to get Slaughtneil etc into our league also to help push our top 4/5 teams on!

yes , 100% right, but heard the chairman not keen on outside clubs

I know heís chair and puts a fair amount of time into it Iím sure, but how could he possibly push through his own agenda without discussing with clubs? Did he even hurl? Or even hurl to a decent level to understand the need to for competitive games rather than drummings? Iíd be disappointed to see something like that become real.
Now that is a ridiculous statement. Do you need to play to know what a team needs? Plenty of managers  who have won top level competitions but have never won them as a player.

I didnít ask has he won something. Well aware of successful managers backgrounds.
The point Iím making is- if he hurled for NE in his time, itíll have been at a low standard, likely then without the ards teams or other teams in the league, therefore not knowing the benefit of having these teams in our league. If heís willing to make crass statements and potentially decisions about removing external teams from our leagues, without consulting with players/managers in the leagues affected, them heíd need to have experienced it himself- hence my question! I know now he hasnít, and shouldnít be making calls like that without some form of consultation.

Imagine Leinster didnít allow our hurlers into their league/championship through the years, wed have been complaining all the same.

Away and get your head felt lad, CMcC is a very intelligent man, I think he would have the wherewithal to consult others. I can't see him going on a solo run with something like this.
As for having to have experienced it himself before making this decision, ffs give him some credit. Your statement is akin to not letting lower league clubs send players forward to county teams due them not being of a required standard, if that's the case then Nicky English would never have worn the blue and gold jersey.

As for Leinster....for years they didnt allow us into any of their leagues, juvenile included. Currently they won't allow us to play any games at home, you sure you want to hold at this high standard you're portraying them to be?

If you know the man- which is seeming like you do- then youíd be well aware he loves a solo run! Again- youíre not reading what Iím asking and looking stupid in the process. I never said him playing lower league stops him playing county, I said it wouldnít have allowed him to experience the external teams coming into the league.
Regarding your Leinster statement, if we want to play in Leinster then we should have no problem travelling- we have no right to walk into a league/championship and demand home games etc.

Do you support his views on removing the external teams from our leagues then??

Outside teams have been coming into Antrim leagues at all levels for years. 3 down teams, Dungiven and the rest of the Derry teams, Armagh teams applied a lot of years back but nothing came off that. They have played numerous competitions at juvenile level, thanks to NA, against NE. The 3 down teams have all, at some stage, played in Div 2 against NE, Johnneycool would be able to fill you in on when this first took place. CMcC would have seen the input outside clubs have had on the Antrim teams, they have boosted the competition standards for years. Given he never leaves NE, he must be up there every day of the week, he has seen this at first hand. It doesn't take you to have played against outside teams to see their benefit.

As for looking stupid, is that the best you can do? I am really busy today and don't really have time for going backwards and forwards with you, you seem to have an opinion, fully entitled to it, you're welcome to it, I just don't agree with it.

I've said it here before and I'll say it again. For a large swathe of Unionism, they cannot stand that Catholics have equal opportunities. This irks the f**k out of them. They want the so-called glory days when they thought they were superior and your average Catholic knew their place. They are not interested in anything else. It is as pure and simple as that.

A personal one this time... my niece who was born prematurely died aged 20 days 4 weeks ago tomorrow. She fought until the end but it wasn't enough.

Luckily for her parents and us all, she has a twin sister who is doing well, still in hospital though.

She'll still be missed by all.

Sorry to hear this, condolences to you and your family

30, 25 and 15 year sentences for the 3 scumbags.
What is the story with one of them not being able to named ?

Was thinking that myself, was he an informer? Then why is his sentence more severe, don't get it personally

He has a another court case pending.

Ah I see, thanks for the info
