Disaster... :'(

There is quite a lengthy report as to why SA are recommended by World Rugby when in reality its quite simple the 181million they are offering World Rugby is 61million more than Ireland lol.

61 million saved so and the massive expected unexpected over run

Didn't hear the Fat ( Am I allowed use that adjective?) Lady sing. While money generally decides these things there's still the "Old Boys" network.

I nearly pissed myself laughing when I read how the report drily noted that a full rebuild of Casement Park was due to be finished in 2020 but there wasn't even planning permission approval yet.

I feel sorry for the people who had to do the technical review and expose themselves to the infectious stupidity that is Ireland's construction sector and try to make sense of it all.

It will take a wee bit off the panic from getting casement built so quickly. 2030 here we go!

The Orient express doesn't take as long as the train journey from Derry to Belfast.

One benefit of direct rule or joint authority is that the likelihood of this being built increases.  Nationalists in Northern Ireland may be given a choice between having a world class GAA stadium in our premier city or an Acht na Gaelige.  As a dedicated Northern Ireland supporting gael Id know which one Id prefer.  Bricks are bricks.  Norn Iron abu!

And as the Dublin train driver said when asked about the dangers on the Dublin Belfast route, " It's fine once you get past Kilbarrack"

Didnt a guy race the train to Derry on his bike and won lol. The problem is it stops fecking everywhere like cullybacky FFS. Worth the journey though for that view form Castlerock to Derry - one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world.
