Kingsman 2 was the most aggressively bad film I’ve seen in a long time. The fact the first film was a genuinely surprising and fun film only heightened the sense of increduality at how bad the sequel is. After the first scene with shîtty CGI and stakeless action I had a feeling I was in for a turkey and nothing that followed changed that perception.

Agreed, a serious let down after first one.

The Disaster Artist is a super movie, bit mad but some genuinely funny parts and because is based on a true story all the better for it. Lags a touch in the middle but it is worth it. James Franco immense in it.

Dunphy just now on RTE.
Liverpool fans are knowledgeable and have a connection with their club unlike say Man United fans..

United have plenty of morons as fans with a good few on here. Probably not tonight though as they only appear when Liverpool get beat.

 However this is just a typical bullshit comment by Dunphy designed to get some controversy going  and some air time for him.   United are no different to the other big clubs in this respect. Dunphy is just an attention seeking bollox

Joe Brolly,Eamon Dunphy and George Hook basically its RTE gimmick to have a sports pundit like that.

Sometimes you be in the pub and someone will shushhh you cause they want to hear what one of these tools has to say  ;D

Always enjoyed his contributions, will be missed around here. Condolences to family, friends and club mates.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Not as good as yesterdays Ulster semi final but a good match between two good clubs sides nonetheless. Slaughtneil v Corofin or Castlebar will be a very interesting semi final. St Vincents getting caught on the hop probably means the defending champions Dr Crokes has easier path to the final now.

Is it not Connacht v Leinster champions in the semi final this year? Corofin have been rusty all through this year but games like today will bring them on a ton. Thought Lundy was fantastic today, his vision and passing is something else, they missed him when he went off injured. Great game to watch, looking forward to the Connacht final.

Lundy did a lot of running alright.

He’d be a lot easier to like with less playacting, though.
Thought if Brigids kept the head after goal they had chance of creating chances themselves, they dropped the heads and were bit ill disciplined and game was up then.

Good game and credit to both teams for a right game of football. Connacht now a play off between the big teams of each county.

Brigids worthy champions, better team and more incisive on the wet wet night.

Brigids will more than likely beat Balla in the final. Annagh Rivers more than likely will be the best hope of a Mayo winner next Friday. What are Tulsk like?
Maybe they will but what are you basing a Brigids win on?

Obviously some kind of axe to grind there!!

To be fair I think a lot of people's teeth are on edge whenever they see things in the media like how great the GAA is, and how it's the heartbeat of the country/community,  and as Dinny said maybe there's a sense that it's a bit harder on soccer. (I don't think Rugby gets a bad rap). WWN must be run by soccer lads in Waterford, so they are going a bit OTT. Normally they are wittier than that.
Think main man for WWN is a Dub relocated to Waterford. Sounds like 50% of Dublin taxi men in the article moaning about the gah. Cue telling us about playing a bit of hurling in primary  school aka borstal.

The auld fella used to talk about Debby all the time. Haystacks flying off over the hill, bridges being washed away and so on.
Debbie does Dungloe.

Messi never does it for Argentina except when he scores one of the all-time great hat-tricks in a do or die World Cup qualifier after they've gone a goal down. Well worth a look on YouTube.

In a game they desperately needed to win, at altitude in Ecuador where they had something like one win in about the last billion years. The man is a footballing God.

Unbelievable stuff from Messi - absolute genius
Wasn't bad was it!

3rd goal, this man is on a different planet.

Garrycastle came out of Athlone

Garrycastle had actually formed prior to the Athlone split. They weren’t making much inroads though, and may well have fallen apart. The Athlone incident led to an injection of influential men in to Garrycastle, such as Des Dolan.
I remember half time a the county final, about 2008 I reckon, and Athlone were the 25 year team getting commemorated. There were only about 6 former players on the field.
What was the Athlone incident you refer of?

Bundoran and Aodh Rua were formed when St. Joseph’s split in the late 70s  (Joseph’s formed, in turn, from an amalgamation in the early 60s).

St Joseph’s won an Ulster club back in the mid-70s and the first two “unofficial” ones in the late 60s. Not bad for 15 years or so of existence! Not sure if their dominance is why they split (7 Donegal senior championships in 11 years and 4 in a row before they split up again)

McEniff and Martin Carney would be their best known players.

Bloody hell is Carney a Donegal man!! Never knew that  :-X :-X

Ballyshannon man.

His brother, a priest, was principal of St Eunan’s College for years. I’m assuming Carney himself moved to and played for Mayo due to work?

Jackie Carney was either his Grandfather or Uncle and was an All Ireland winner with Mayo in 1936 and trainer of the All Ireland winning 50/51 teams.

In a sense Martin came home.

Some of his Midwest radio commentary

A supremely gifted and talented player but nowhere near one of the greatest of all time.
The best are usually considered the best because they have the complete package which would include temperament, character, reliability etc and unfortunately Connolly has shown to be lacking in a few of these areas in recent years. The best can also usually be relied upon 9 times out of 10 to perform to a level and where they can be the difference between winning and losing.

A supremely gifted footballer but a heck of a way to go before being considered one of the greatest of all time.
Yeah, you'd have to rule Diego Maradona out of being one of the greatest footballers of all-time on a similar basis.
Diego also has 2 less all star awards.
