Few Sri Lanka flags at Healy Park tomorrow evening?

Probably lots up Ballymena & Cullybackey direction.

Couldnt make it to Creggan on Wednesday night to watch Carey so went to the Armoy and Randalstown game.

Do referees under go fitness tests? Dont think I have seen worse...

Sign up then & give it a lash. Some of us on here either did our bit, or are doing it. Not quite as easy when you're out in the middle as it looks when you're hanging over the fence. But, rather than sound off, contribute something.

There's also the ongoing investigation into how Mid & East Antrim Council authorised a payment to take a table at a North Antrim DUP dinner. That could add more fuel to the fire & increase the younger Paisley's woes. Snarlene refused to express any confidence in him earlier. Wonder is there a plot to put the entire Paisley legacy to bed? Baroness Paisley has been rather critical when she gets the chance to get her say. Wonder is time up for the Paisleys?

Lord Laird, prominent Ulster Scots campaigner.

Mey 'e reist a pace.

Yeh...all the tributes glossed over his earlier career in Vanguard...a completely bitter ould ballix & that side of him is being airbrushed.

Is there any reason they couldn't have played extra time in the Galway/Kilkenny game?

Yes...the unwritten GAA rule.....sides level, blow it up & wait for replay cash to roll in.

I remember  that I stayed in a hotel right  outside the  Central train station in Stockholm where the Arlanda express from the Airport got in... can't recall  the name, but handy enough.

Flying to Bergen, Norway before taking the train to Oslo for a few days and finally on by train to Stockholm before flying back to Dublin.

Anyone been in Bergen, Oslo or Stockholm.

Been to Sweden couple of times. Stockholm lovely place.

Are Sinn Féin doing the right  thing  by not putting the boot in?

Why step  in, when Coghlin is laying into them & skewering them all roads??

Mrs Playwiththewind drew Tiger Roll in her office sweep. Put a tenner on it at lunchtime  for her. Collected the winnings....she gave me my  tenner back. That's  a hard lesson learned.

Age levels & structure? Black card rule? Casement reopening? The GAA is a total mystery nowadays.

I have this recurring dream, that I was at an All-Ireland semi final in 1989 that Antrim won & that I was at an All-Ireland final with Antrim appearing in it shortly after. Just shows you how far backwards we have gone that we are talking about the Joe McDonagh Cup nowadays.

The Funeral Murders on BBC2 was totally compelling. Remember the time well and must bring back some memories for MR2 etc from the area.

Recorded it will watch it tomorrow, half expecting to see my face.. so soon after Stone! The place was on edge..
I'll look out for you. Did you have hair in 1988?  ;D

Flowing locks!

 I remember standing at the roundabout at Kennedy way for the Stone carnage and one of the news team came up to us and were asking why are there so many people out to mourne these IRA men and woman, as a 16 year old your were mainly curious to see if something would kick off, as they generally did at these funerals, but I remember saying that people are out to show respect for these fallen volunteers or words to that effect (i'd no political views growing up despite the day to day), the view of a young teenager i suppose growing up in a place that during those times was relentless, shootings and bombs going off, riots on plenty occasions following various incidents..

Bizzare times. The Michael Stone is the one that sticks out, watching the ground blow up was almost unreal, hearing the cracks of Stone's gun go off and watching the fellas (including my older brother) chase after him, madness

I took a half day off work, to go to the funerals.  Taxis had been told to stop, so got to Milltown just as the 3 hearses arrived. All kicked off shortly afterwards. Frightened the feckin shit out of me, I can tell ya.
