Not all bad news. Unemployment at 10 year low in NI.

What do they all do?

Was it slurred? She looks to me like someone who's been hitting the sauce of late

I'd say Theresa May must be tempted to knock a few back at this stage.

Arlene speaks today
We were not contemplating bringing in an Irish language act and I could not be clearer in relation to that. If you look at the so-called draft agreement that is only one of a number of documents that were circulated and put out and about, and I think the important thing is that we now reflect on where we got to in relation to all of those issues, we have a budget put in place, I think that is important for the people of Northern Ireland and that we move forward.

The "middle ground" who would be nationalist with a small n and unionist with a small w will always be driven by economic realities.
An economically well off Catholic isn't going to suddenly insist on a border poll if all's well with the world and I think that's the point Malachi is trying to make.

Unionism/loyalism in its current trajectory is driving those people into the arms of the Shinners.

Not quite the Shinners, Leo Varadkar, perhaps.

You mightn't support the Union itself but loads of Catholics support the status quo, it's not exactly the same thing.

This is the mistake they made with Brexit by making the status quo chaotic.

Totally opposed to domestic violence in this World but would anyone condemn Tom if he was giving this witch a good slapping right now?

Wouldn't they likely be lodged in different lodgings in the after life?

The charge will be in the basis of what she reported to the police. Not sure of any criminal justice systems that charges people based on what they say to a doctor.

However, inconsistency in different accounts could affect the likelihood of being convicted on that charge.

I see Monaghan beat Kerry as well.
Obviously wasn't a day for football.

Armagh got robbed in Sligo last year, absolutely robbed, I would love to see Armagh pound on ye but ya never know.

My prediction for this year, Armagh 2-17 Sligo 0-9.

I will go for the same score. Just a hunch.

Will any bookie take us on, I wonder?

We’ve Armagh co. Board to thank for the coverage not really the bbc. If this match was in Omagh or newry the cameras wouldn’t be there for it. It’s the Armagh tv gig which we’ve to thank for the coverage.

Wobbler is somewhat sceptical of the sustainability of volunteer input to such operations, but perhaps the GAA providing the coverage is one way forward for smaller games.

Meath are not the Meath of old and probably due to a lack of underage success for years and club football that has only improved recently. Basically Meath have to walk before they can run. Meaths aims should be to reach the super 8s and try to gain promotion to div one this spring. If the rest of the Meath players attitude was like O Rourkes "this is not worth it" then Meath will only stay where they are and make no progress at all.

The question remains does the toil match the reward? I think in every county bar Dublin the answer is a resounding no. Even the players involved now probably regularly ask themselves if what the IC game has become is worth it.

Is the toil less for a Dublin  player ??

Apart from the travel, no. But an AI medal might make it worth it.
