Again from someone who doesn't follow it overly closely - MM always comes across terribly imo, I always be fairly impressed with LV as well, but maybe it's just my Liberal / Natural Political tendencies coming out in me. I still associate FF with Gombeenism and the worst excesses of the recent past.

Can't agree on Clonoe, it's a huge catchment area - and recent development will only further that around there.

The recent development will NOT benefit us greatly as most newly developed estates in Clonoe contain families from Neighbouring clubs....there is one estate in Clonoe that 3 starting players for Coalisland live in..... Clonoe Coalisland and Derrylaughan all punch above their weight for the numbers and competition they have in their catchment area.....
How do we define this punching above weight for their catchment area? IS there a database anywhere showing numbers of families or potential playing population?
The diocese of Armagh website used to have a table with numbers of families and IIRC both the Clonoe and Ballyclog both had fairly large numbers compared to the likes of Carrickmore and Ballygawley.

Ballyclog and Clonoe Parish takes in Clonoe Derrylaughan Coalisland Brockagh Derrytresk Stewartstown and Brackaville

Which clubs are which parish
I think u seen a parish map in Tyrone one time and ardboe looked to have a massive parish???

Will there now be a big rush for one side to cosy up with SF?

What side?? Fine Gael and Finna Fail are pretty much the exact same thing. Nobody really notices that they are cozying up in government together. Piggies all eating from the same trough.

An amalgamation would be better for the country. Sick of their petty little squabbles that distracts from tackling the real issues.

The Telegraph has been campaigning for a new Britannia to help win deals for Britain after the UK leaves the European Union for months.

Plans for a new £100million Britannia have already received the backing of two Cabinet ministers, Liam Fox and Boris Johnson who has insisted he would “love a trade yacht” to help win deals for Britain after Brexit.

He's not engaging though. He comes across as a D4 head, and he hasn't reached the constituencies I think. I'm not sure anybody really pays any remarks to debate. In Ireland, as most places, politics is local but the man or woman at the top has to be somewhat popular.

There’s a reason they stick up as many posters of the party leader as the local candidate in areas where it’s a toss up, AZ. A leader that is seen as polished and competent (which is enough with the field we have at the minute) can bring home enough preferences to pull those candidates over the line. FF will likely be blamed for this election, so LV has an opportunity if he wants it.

The left wing parties like SF and the water charges are going to get a punch in the face if this goes to the polls.
Not sure about that. The electorate is volatile. FG badly misjudged the last election. How they would do is in their own hands. The message needs to resonate.

They won the election.
If they had won Syf a FF vote of no confidence would be irrelevant. They didn't make the quota

You really don’t know Irish election history if you think the last election counts as a disaster for FG.
polarisation is everywhere. It is because of the economic situation.
The last election was like an unplanned pregnancy for FG.
