Funny you men mention the Abbey, any Lurgan man with half a brain ended up at St Coleman's but never the Abbey. suppose they had the football in mind when selecting their school :P.

Well it obviously wasn't education.

This is not the same thing at all. If you directly go to a Democrat website and choose to login then that is a conscious choice you make and you are aware that they know about you. If you go to a website with nothing to do with politics and they sell your details on to Cambridge Analytica then that is a totally different order of magnitude.

Because of the pickpockets etc we are definitely avoiding the Ramblas at night, maybe head for a walk on Saturday during the day just.

Now there are some episodes of more serious things in Barcelona, but the proper response to pickpockets alone is to put stuff out of reach, changing where you go is excessive.

being from Lurgan , I've never heard of anyone from the town who ever went to the Abbey

The Abbey had many positive features.

I'm confused- I really am. This is the statement from the UK today:

"We agree on the need to include legal text detailing the ‘backstop’ solution for the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the withdrawal agreement that is acceptable to both sides,” said Davis"

So there is a backstop, so there is no hard border, so there is a customs union in the north?

why is this not news?

It is news. But it still only applies if there is a final deal and the British cannot be trusted.

Dublin to beat Kerry
A narrow win for Tyrone v Donegal
Galway and Monaghan to draw a low scoring match
Mayo to beat Kildare

Not too far away. :)

Kildare v mayo could be the game of the weekend,it's do or die for kildare,a win gives them a chance while mayo have the cushion of Tyrone at home in there next match to garner a minimum 4pts.i expect Galway to beat Monahan in a tight game what odds on both finishing with 15?
Wins for Dublin and donegal.

Don't give up the day-job! ;)
Though Tyrone are more of a hedgehog than a cushion, Mayo will surely langer Tyrone senseless in the next round.
FoSB ??
a tyronite  who finally emerges , throwing shapes, after cowering in some some dark hole for months on end until rescued by Tyrone coming out on top in a relegation dogfight :)

Run that one by me once again, why don't you?::P
Perhaps I was a bit distracted in wondering who would emerge as Monaghan's semi final opponent in Ulster this year. I think it's going to be too close to call between Fermanagh and Armagh.

If they were wise they would send both teams  to play Monaghan at the same time

Is league Sunday available to watch online? I've got a vpn app that has me in 'the south' so should get round the whole northern black out!

A vpn app that showed you in the "north" would also work, as there is no northern blackout, only one caused because RTÉ have no rights in Britain.

Thon Stockdale is built like a rugby player, but has some great acceleration.

Since he doesn't exist in law, presumably he couldn't be prosecuted if, for instance, he robbed a bank?

That would be a brilliant existential defence.

Likewise if you robbed or even killed this guy would that be a crime?

These games have a chance for Sunday, not being in snowy regions.

A case when a little research would have gone a long way. It's frightening that these people (-1 now) are walking our streets.

Truly frightening, when research would have been easy to do.
I expect they hadn't read the encyclopedia.
