Tony was in a very cunning disguise for his behind enemy lines jaunt to the sectarian cesspit.

Sadly little has changed in Windsor Park.I was there in 1979 when Gerrry Daly was split by a bottle thrown by the natives.Yesterday,I was in the North Stand,among Linfield fans,in the only section open to me to buy a ticket.The rabid Anti Catholic sectarianism and racism was rife from first minute to last.Before the game started,an acquaintance of mine,a professional man along with his two grown up sons took their seats a few rows down from me in the same section.It got so bad,they asked the stewards to escort them out early,and were showered with sectarian abuse as they left.

You missed the perfect chance to test out your truly inspirational theory re the recently ordained Fr Mulryne, surely , if you enquired, you could have found one or two faithful blues that would have passed a few moments reminiscing about the now Fr Mulryne and the nights he used to perform for the faithful on the very pitch you were looking at last night.

Mervyn and Sammy could have discussed your divine intervention theory over a half time bovril with you.

Essendon destroyed St Kilda tonight 118 - 57
Conor McKenna had a quiet enough game whilst steady enough at the same time, he scored a clinker.

Billy was financed by the Jews in Amsterdam. When he beat James, he brought the Jews into Britain. Up until then they were banned. When they got in, they set up the Bank of England.

Is that why loyalists fly the flag of Israel?

If themmuns are gonny fly the PLO fled we are gonny fly the Israeli fleg would be the rationale behind that particular move

It could be better all round if Tony joined the Cistercians and took a vow of silence.

I have been job hunting for the last couple of months following notice of pending redundancy. I finish up with the company I am currently with later this month.

I have met with 6-8 recruitment agencies and would agree with what is being said here in that they are mostly pretty average at best. Some young ones that clearly have never worked in another industry and wouldn't have a notion about my level of technical competence and also some more polished but pompous gimps who say all the right things but generally don't lead anywhere.

I have had more success from my own work than through recruiters and I know I have missed out on one role because the recruiter got in first with my CV and the company wouldn't be willing to take their fee.

It is tough going but it just takes diligence and I am sure that the right thing will come off sooner rather than later. I have written off all but maybe one of the recruiters I met at this stage and have much more trust in my own ability to find something suitable for me.

The whole process will have me wiser should I ever be in this situation again in the future.

Look after yourself and don't rely on anyone else.

Edit: LinkedIn. Worthwhile or not? I have never had a profile. I am generally quite a private person when it comes to my work and don't publicise what I do outside of close friends and family.

First of all good luck with the job hunting, sounds like you already know what needs to be known about recruiters, lower than estate agents.

Re the LinkedIn profile I have one and find it useful for keeping in touch with people I would have worked with in the past - you never burn bridges do you - even though you may not be bosum buddies , on a professional level it's good to stay in touch with people that could be colleagues again in the future.
If you manage to get by without it then all the better .

If vocations are at an all time low it must be part of God''s plan. God must also have planned the Holocaust.  I wonder what those poor Jews and Gypsies did to deserve it.

We should just accept Gods Will & listen to some gospel music and prepare our souls for repentance or whatever or something something Mary and the little ass

I haven't seen any evidence of anyone being anything but complimentary to the now Fr Mulryne on this thread.
More fiction Tony.

There are good recruiters and bad recruiters. Same as most professions. Try and find one where they'll discuss your career and what you want to do rather than shoehorn you in to a position that they have. A good recruiter will complete an interview and should be able to build a target list of organisations that fit. It also has to be mentioned that some candidates have unrealistic expections of what they want and can be ott demanding.

Yes I am a parasite recruiter.

This was my expectation, however not one recruiter has actually offered to interview me, review me CV or offered any substantial advice around my expectations. I use to do a lot of the recruiting for my old company so I know my worth in the market.

Now reconsidering going to Monaghan instead of France for my holdays, just for the Indian food mind........

Do it Dinny , I can't imagine why anyone would forego the chance of a culinary Mecca like the Eastern Balti House in Park Street Monaghan for a trip to France  !

Tolerance wasn't exactly a trait the venerated Roman Catholic Church displayed too often in Ireland in the past but now it is expected in return ?
Having pity on otherwise sensible people that worship the sky father is surely akin to most values espoused in Christian parables is it not ?

While it is sad to see the extent of irrational anti -Catholicism here and in general,the story of Philip Mulryne is heartwarming and indeed inspirational.The transformation in his life path is evidence of divine intervention,of that I have no doubt.

And you genuinely have no idea why ? It's not anti Catholicism per se Tony , far from it, I know lots of practising Catholics and apart from sometimes questioning their sanity genuflecting before the sky fairy I do not in any way hate them, even you Tony !

Even the most hard hearted anti humanitarian would struggle to have the any respect for this guy, who , in his previous religious life had it all , considered himself untouchable and is now set to face the court where he will hopefully be sentenced to an extended stay in the big house, Please God.....

Ffs, there's plenty of threads to discuss this sort of thing. It's like those knobheads on twitter who reply to Gary Lineker about shitting himself every time he posts. Oh there's a positive story about priests...I need to post an abuse story!

Fair play to Mulryne - I wish him all the best. I have been blessed to know many great priests in my life, hopefully he will have a positive influence in his new role.

Thanks for letting me know what, where and when to post big lad, I'd be lost without you.
Seriously , Tony has been posting about the now Fr Mulryne since just before he entered the seminary.

Good to hear that you know or have known good priests in your life, unfortunately more than a few of our fellow country men and others around the world have not had as benign an experience as you .

If Tony , who has condoned the clerical sex abuse cover up time after time , is going to keep us informed at every step of the way , on Fr Mulrynes path to ordination , well then I will , if I choose to , post links to the increasing volume of Fr Mulrynes now colleagues worldwide who are been hauled before the courts to explain their nefarious activities of the past.

Now I must go and tweet to Gary Lineker that he soiled himself on the field of play, yet again Benny I am in your debt , I almost forgot I had to do that
