I see what youre saying, the more I think on it Orior was right, she is an attention seeking gimp......

In the context of which she was in the news - giving her side of a police ombudsman report into the PSNI's handling of her rape at the hands of the IRA, I don't think she was attention seeking and to say she was is utterly reprehensible.
Firstly her rape was not at the hands of the IRA, she was raped and abused by well known member of the IRA who it appears abused at least one other girl. The IRA failed her in not dealing with the abuse. The RUC failed her by trying to exploit her abuse for their own ends and social services abused her. Maria Cahill has very obviously been traumatised by her experience bot of the abuse and trying to seek redress. In my view she has been further abused by those political parties opposed to SF, not without abusers in their own ranks trying to score points, rather than get her justice. Maria herself has had a colourful political career. But nothing can excuse the way in which she was treated by the state or by those in the IRA seeking to cover for the organisation in much the same way they criticise the church for doing. MaryLou needs to make a fulsome apology for the sins of the past.

Who are you talking about here?

One hand owning up the other slinging mud

Jack O Connor has been interviewed for the Mayo job, may be an announcement soon.

Such nonsense. There’s rumours going round he was in Breaffy Friday night, again nonsense.

Next thing it’ll be Roy Keane with Liam McHale and Mick McCarthy as assistant

Naughton is an outstanding footballer, the points he kicks are unreal

Wasn’t that impressed by Nally but thought Golden was outstanding. Lost the programme but yer 20 impressed in the first half

Kauai’s some serious scoring between Coolera and Savage Bears while I look like getting away with a win for the second lowest score

John Maughan the new Offaly manager

If he got it what was their shortlist? Eugene McGee, Mick O Dwyer and Tommy Carr. Talk about yesterday's man.

One bullet dodged. ;)

It gets worse. Tommy Tom Carr is apparently on the ticket as well.

If it keeps him off the radio ye should do the decent thing and take one for the team

I’d say he’s exactly what Offaly need. They should be very happy with that appointment

I'd be fairly confident he made that comment assuming you wouldn't publicly attribute it to him on
It was made to a sizeable enough group, all involved in the Mayo club scene or at least with an interest

Sure don't I feel bitter myself I didn't get a run. The knives have been out for Rochford in Ballina in a serious way

As for Brolly, he may be living out this way but in no way whatsoever is he an honorary Knockmore man

There’s incompetent stupidity, and there’s Knockmore stupidity - I'm not really sure what you mean by that?

It seems like Rochford resigned because he was left with no other option, he had stated last week that he wanted to stay and then was given 2 weeks to finalise a backroom team, unrealistic

There is a whole lot of propaganda going on in the county, so you need to know where the information is coming from and what that person gains from that news being out there.
I spoke to Noel Connelly a couple of weeks back, he told me the players didn't want Rochford but that they couldn't go against another manager and that McEntee would go for the job but not against Rochford. Who knows how much of that is true, how much of it is spin from he CB and how much of it is sour grapes against the players that ousted him. Any of those are a believable and understandable.

Its a mess

Personally I think Rochford did a great job, he got no credit within the county. I think especially in Ballina he was vilified for the Clarke thing and not playing Regan, the daggers were out for him locally. I also think his time was up. We were at a stage this summer when he had no players on the bench that he trusted to bring on in a scorching day in Newbridge. Not beating Galway eventually left us with too many injuries. But we had probably our best year ever as supporters in 2017

Has been confirmed that Stephen Rochford is staying on as Mayo manager.

No it hasn't - theres been no meeting between the CB and Rochford yet, Rochford has said he's staying for another year - different thing

There were a few little tussles going on alright but he was feckin wired. Like a Mayo man was booked for one too so local radio bias might have been in play a bit too.
Correct me if I'm wrong but Flynn also completely took out Kildare's corner back in the first half under the Cusack and it wasn't even a tick, when it was a blatant black.
It was far more than minor interference but i wouldn't like to see him hung out to dry.

That was at the start of the second half, it was Evan O'Brien. It was the far side of the pitch to me but looked a clear black. The ref played advantage and it ran on for a long time. The next break in play O'Brien was subbed off. The ref dodnt seem to be looking around for him though
