Owen care to name any of these? In 1974 Portadown were in Div 4.3.years later they joined Ballyhegan in Div 1 and were considered upstarts.

the Tiffneys played for Tir Na Nog for a while before transferring back to Ballyhegan

Was there as much hooha about dublin playing heir home games at CP between 1996 and 2010?
All three of them?

I suppose the GAA would have been better off without those 218,000 spectators coming through the gates of Croke Park for those three games, and the resulting money generated.

Far too elitist.

Would have been much better if they had been played in front of a cumulative 27,000 in Parnell Park.

You have lost me with this
Dublin played three home league games at Croke Park between 1996 and 2010. The cumulative attendance at those three games was 218,000.

I don't remember any objections.

I was referring to championship games also

Eh? That’s been a point of contention long before Dublin started hoovering up AIs. Weird thing to try to point to.

It was a question. Not pointing to anything. I ask because it's only in the last couple of years that I have noticed it. That's not saying it didn't happen as I I've been living away for a long time until recently. Hence the question

If he had been jailed there'd have been no complaints from me.No excuse for bad behaviour at any sports fixtures.Tarnishes the good name of the club.

The young lad acted the eejit at a soccer match while full of drink .  He looks a harmless craytur . 

Imposing  a custodial sentence on him would be pointless and wrong . 

The embarrassment is punishment enough.

Harmless craytur yes, but how much will his action cost Celtic Football Club? Could be a few pennies if they're made to play a home match in an empty stadium.

could argue how much would the inept stewarding cost

Dunphy is an ejit but I wouldn't pay too much attention to these comments

So is Trump. And look where he is now.

Sometimes it is better to call out the idiot before the unthinkable happens.

While I appreciate the logic of your post, I don't think there is any danger of Dunphy running anything nevermind any country

Dunphy was vehemently anti republican and nationalist up until he witnessed the famous Night in November 1993 at Windsor Park.He changed his tune right away,after witnessing the bigotry,sectarianism and anti Irish hostility that night,and became almost a Sinn Feiner.

Kerr was pictured not long after losing his job as Irish Manager at a Setanta Cup match,involving St Pats Athletic,in the North,with a bag of chips purchased from a chip van in a small decrepit stadium.Something I doubt you'll see any other ex Irish manager doing

"vehemently anti Republican"
In other words did not favour sectarian slaughter of innocents by bombing pubs in Birmingham etc

Because that is all republicans are and do/have done. Ejit

Northerners certainly get a tough time from the Southern media, I think you'd need to have your head in the sand if you can't see it.
Utter nonsense. The fact that McClean, Duffy and O'Neill are from Derry rather than Cork or Dublin is totally irrelevant to anyone in Ireland in terms of praise or criticism dished out (to anyone apart from those in the 6 it seems)

Don't feed the cries for attention any more than you have to.
The irony  ;D

« on: October 09, 2017, 10:09:06 PM »
Look at the number and diversity of the vast amount of strands of Protestantism to see what happens when these structures aren't in place.

Protestantism is a robust idea that swept Europe during the reformation, and today evangelical megachurches are growing at an alarmingly high rate. Meanwhile the pews in Catholic churches are emptying and they can't get enough priests to cover the pitifully small number of people still going to mass on a regular basis.

Lurgan is doing alright. Though if a certain priest continues with 15 minute long homilies that may change
