Quote from: tbrick18 on Today at 11:35:11 AMWhat ever about the local politicians running for Westminster - the only real interest I have in that is the nationalist v unionist count at the end of it. An increase in the number of nationalists might nudge us further towards a border poll.

It feels inevitable that the Tories are going to lose in a landslide Labour victory and as much as I want to see that, I can't help but feel Starmer is not going to change much. I'm not a fan of his. It's such a pity Labour aren't going in with a Corbyn-esque leader who I think would do some real good. I know he wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but I think he was honest and had the good of all people at heart.
Starmer is the continuity candidate.

Quote from: Rossfan on Today at 12:54:19 PMWon't be doing away with Provincials while hurling exists.
Munster SHC will be grossing €6m in gate receipts this year.

Terrace tickets for Munster Hurling Final sold out in 15 minutes this morning.

There is no reason why hurling and football have to be the same.

Separate provincials plus a league as suggested above would work for football.
Fógra : Only 2 of the football provincials work

Well done Louth but it is hard to see Meath like this.
The malaise in football is bigger than just Dublin.

Louth destroying us. O'Rourke and the whole back room team can go now.
3-10 to 0-9
On a seismic scale this is equivalent to the time Westmeath beat Meath

Quote from: whitey on May 21, 2024, 06:30:38 PMI'm sure people are going to go ballistic (no pun intended) when I ask this question, but what exactly did Hamas hope to accomplish by the attacks on October 7th?

Was it a revenge attack for decades of oppression on the Palestinians?

Was it an attempt to start a war?

Was it an attempt to derail the normalization of relations between Israel and other Muslim Countries?

Netanyahu was like Tyson Fury on Saturday night and would likely have been removed from office. Why did they give him this lifeline ?

On a scale of 1-10 how did they think Israel would respond ? (1 being do nothing, 10 being dropping a nuke)
They wanted to stop Saudi normalising relations with Israel, they wanted to put Palestine back on the agenda and they wanted to swap hostages for prisoners. Israel will never be seen in the same light again.

Quote from: seafoid on May 14, 2024, 10:13:27 PMAny idea what the €500 million refers to?

Yes, he referred to two different groups / lists of commitments - one was in relation to new / improved centres of excellence (with both Armagh and Monaghan getting a mention) and the other to GAA Stadium infrastructure projects - this latter list included Kerry, Tipp, Louth, Meath, Kildare and Antrim.
I don't think adding money to GAA grounds does the games much good. Pairc ui chaoimh is a great warning

You don't think Louth, Meath, Kildare and Antrim don't need a help financially??
They do not need tens of millions each.

Casement does need 10s of millions.
This is a circular issue. What sort of improvement levels does it need? does it need to be ready for the Euros ?

RTÉ doesn't have a business model and the Govt aren't going to give them much more than pocket money.
