Fair play to Tracey Magee, refusing to wear a poppy on UTV Live... girl has more balls than Frankie Fuckwit and all those other west Brits on UTV and local BBC
Wouldnt expect anything else from Frankie, he hadnt even the balls to use his own name.

No surprise, a college man.

Not sure if the recent BT Shoulder to Sholder documentary has been discussed yet on this thread.   Despite his expensive education, BOD is clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer.  Complete lack of empathy displayed throughout.  Also, time given to Belfast Republican sympathiser seemed misplaced given segment that followed relating to Ulster players injured in IRA bomb on return from Ireland training camp before the 18987 World Cup.  "Wrong place, wrong time" was how BOD dexcribed it.  Never mind the fact that the bomb should not have been exploded in the first place.  Poor documentary with little insight provided.
An expensive private education doesn't mean anything
If you're not the sharpest then exclusivity won't remedy it

Your own education was not inexpensive, possibly quite expensive depending on the state school you attended.

O'Driscoll's family like many in RoI were prepared and able to buy a different education from that available from the state.  There was no guarantee of the educational outcome for their son but attending Blackrock opened so many other doors for him him both sporting and social in RoI.  That's what his parents bought for him.

Why are the BBC even showing this crap, their cameras should be in the Athletic Grounds tomorrow night for Cross and the Island, but we all know thisíll never happen!!


If tg4 can purchase rights to games no reason why the BBC can't do better. Continued pressure and lobbying needed. As for utv??

TG4 bought the rights to all provincial club championship and AI championship games. Be sensible, why would the BBC try to outbid them and deprive people in the south from seeing them. 

TG4 exercise their rights purchase every week and prevent counties from broadcasting even when they have no intention of showing them live just an option to show them as clips.  Take your issues to TG4.

At least give the BBC some credit for buying highlight rights to all 9 county finals and showing them on its Gaelic Games web page.

Or maybe none of that fits your agenda.

Bit rich coming from you!!!  ::)
Agreed !

What a pair of hypocrites! Everyone on this forum has their own agenda, some may prefer to call it their opinion. You wouldn't be contributing to the forum if you didn't have an agenda/opinion.  The problem arises when someone has an opinion at variance with your own.

Girl who sustained severe brain injury while 'tram-surfing' on Luas settles Ä550k High Court action.

Rebecca Kelly was only 13 years of age when she and a friend jumped on the outside of Luas tram gripping on to the edge of the doors as it departed the Fatima station on the Red Line eight years ago.

The young girl fell back on to the tracks striking her head and had to be rescued by her friend. The friend along with the help of others pulled Rebecca out of the way of an oncoming Luas tram en route to the city centre.

Rebecca Kelly (20) of Pearse House, Pearse Street, Dublin had through her mother Elizabeth Kelly sued the Luas operators as a result of the accident on September 3, 2010.

She claimed there was an alleged failure to have any or any adequate visual systems employed and activated on the tram and that the driver was unable in the circumstances to see the non-platform side of the tram before leaving the station.

Mine goes to 45 miles then stops showing it but at that stage the dial on the tank is showing at the very very end i.e. that it wont do any more.

On that note is 130 miles for 20 quid of diesel a crap return? Should i be getting more than that.

@ £1.35 per litre this works out at about 39.5mpg. It is not brilliant but not too bad. What type of car is it?

Vauxhall Astra 2.0 auto

Told you at the time to buy the Golf.

I am averaging 48 mpg over all types of driving and the over speed being less than 35 mph over serval thousand miles. Has been as high as 51 mpg over almost 2,000 miles and an average speed of 37 mph.  The car is a 2L TDI Golf - 148 bhp with 6 speed auto gearbox.

Looks like Casement is a dead duck for the foreseeable future.

Time for Ulster GAA to spend some of its own money to demolish the stand, provide temporary accommodation for changing rooms and renovate the pitch in time for Antrim to play on it next year. A small amount of money in the context of the project and/or Ulster GAA income.

Do not waste another year by leaving the ground to continue to deteriorate.

Maurice has been a teacher with years. Heís also an auctioneer/estate agent.

Given that he has become principal of ColŠiste na Sceilge in Cahersiveen he won't have much time for auctioneering or managing a county football team.

Can't believe any self respecting GAA person would go on that show unless they were getting paid? Then Kieran has always been about the money, just look at his twitter feed promoting his sponsored cars, writing a book, yerra etc yerra.


Did he have any book signing sessions in local shops to promote the book?

Have you looked at your hero's twitter feed to see his promotion of sponsored clothes:

https://twitter.com/benettimenswear/status/1039873544082128897

his book: https://twitter.com/SeanCavanagh14/status/1037402878791622657

and his business.

All of these players who are switched on are into self promotion to get as much out of their name while they can and fair play to every one of them regardless of where they are from.  They put a hell of a lot more into the game than they ever will get in return. It's just of them are better and more prolific at it than others.

GAA Discussion / Is the Indo going after Tyrone GAA?
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:08:16 PM »
Brolly has consistently hammered Tyrone in his columns in the Indo.

Com O'Rourke has been behind in ladling out the criticism of Tyrone football in his columns.

Recently Ewan McKenna has tackled Mickey Harte and issues relating to Sean Cavanagh.

Today Dermot Crowe goes even further with this article.....

Those are 3 different personalities completely.
Cavanagh strikes me as a gurnin bastid of the highest order.
He has little or no loyalty too; only out of that Tyrone setup a wet weekend and already mouthin off about everythin.
He has literally scattergunned all areas; Catholic Church & the GAA, Mickey Harte, Mental Health, gamesmanship and abuse in games.
Mighty mighty player but i think Joe Brolly may have been right.

Not often we agree but +1

You are one bitter Armagh man. Pity you canít get 03 and 05 out of your head after all these years.

Your post says it all about you without the need for any further comment.  ::)

The Cavanagh photo was obviously taken and published by himself. It was made deliberately to look worse by doing very little to clean up his face of dried blood before the photo was taken. There appeared to be no broken skin and the blood would therefore have come from the alleged break in his nose.

In other words it was another piece of self promotion to enhance the claims of victimhood in his book.

He didn't post the picture. But please continue to spout uninformed shite.

I think you will find he took the picture himself and sent it on to a "friend" and doesn't know how it got on from there. ::) 

Read the article below.......

What you said "The Cavanagh photo was obviously taken and published by himself."
What happened - sent picture privately to a friend.

Are you a slow learner?

Not quite as slow as yourself as you cannot tell the difference between posted and published.

If you don't want a picture to become public you don't send it digitally to anyone else. If you do publish it by sending it on to a 'friend' then don't feign surprise when it becomes readily available on-line on various forums especially when you are actively flogging a book and going around book shops for signing.

He neither published or posted the picture. You are wrong.

What shops has he been signing the book in? - More lies. You're making shite up just because you don't like him. If you don't like him that's fine. Just don't make up bullshit.
I'd quit now if I was you.

There you go again, mouth running off before putting any brain into gear.

Tomorrow you can have your copy of the book signed in a very small newsagents in Omagh. Go to Top News in Georges Street.

If you can't make Omagh, go to Easons in Foyleside in Derry on Saturday
