Who makes the final decision on the constituencies?
Is it an independent non political commission or is it the relevant British Minister in London?

Every pitch should be locked from 1 December to 31 January.
That will leave 43 weekends.
Plenty of time for Club and County fixtures in those 43 weeks if organised properly.

I don't like to use the IRA/SF thing but they were the same grouping from 1970 to 2005.
SF are only now beginning to knock the odd Provo atrocity.
I was responding to Bombast's nonsense and all those things I mentioned were visited upon the Nationalists by the Provo IRA.
You are missing the point, the troubles up here are not as simple as southerners believe, they like you for the most part accept the Unionist mantra of a one sided affair.
I've never believed the "Troubles" were a 1 sided affair.
Just because I post critically of SF and Provo atrocities doesn't mean I agree with blinkered Unionists who say all was grand until the Provo IRA for some unknown reason started violence in 1970 or 71.
Still no justification for Kingsmill Enniskillen etc.

And I with the above piece that head office in Dublin told Barry to fall on his sword to help SF's chances in the next GE in the 26 which they obviously think isn't that far away.

What about ?
Yellow card!!

There you go again, SF and the Provos!!!!
Gerry was never in the IRA
SF had no connection whatever with the Provo IRA

True but in a voluntary amateur pastime if someone doesn't want to play for you.......


Ya but there are supposed to be rules in place to prevent "tapping up"......it's not just black and white.
Things seldom are but if a lad doesn't want to play for you all the rules  do is prevent him from playing at all and that  send him off to soccer or worse. Fkn rubby.

Apart from the 2 or 3 Glaveys people nobody else will want to go to both matches this weekend.
Also why are club finals on a Saturday yet the Semis are on Sunday?
Surely the Final is more befitting of a Sunday fixture?

I won't be going to Tuam anyway.
With the Final in the Hyde I can't not go to it.

Wasn't DeValera anti treaty?
He was from 1921 to 1926 when he started Fianna Fáil and decided to accept the Treaty's and Free State's existence and work within it.

Bombast - the killings around Dunmanway were it appears carried out by the Anti Treaty IRA who were  the Provos of the time.
Kingsmill sadly didn't prevent Sectarian murders of Catholics by loyalist murder squads.

Donald People and Politicians in the 26 will stop throwing Provo atrocities at SF when  the SF politicians stop holier than thou hectoring and pontificating and provide proper opposition instead.
Picking Marylou as leader instead of Pearse Doherty certainly won't help in this regard.

So what exact outcome was expected at Kingsmill when you line up 10 or 12 civilians and rake them with gunfire?
When you set off a bomb in the middle of a public gathering in Enniskillen?
When you leave a bomb in a bin in the middle of a busy town centre on a Saturday and let it off without warning?
Set off incindeiespecially during a busy function in a hotel?
Bate a lad up in a shed with crowbars?
