Carlow (ex D4) might try to horse Tyrone out of it and then target their fragile confidence.
Or else get hammered.

The men of 1916 established a democracy, where women had the same vote as men. If that is what people wanted then that is a fair outcome of 1916.


What about the women of 1916? The rest of your post displays similar ignorance....I'd advise you have a watch if you can access the documentary. The treatment of women by the Republic of Ireland government since 1922 has been totally scandalous and vastly at odds with the ideals of those brave people who fought in 1916.

I didn't know that the men of '16 were woke as well as everything else. Most of them were shot before women got the vote, so the news that a patriarchal, Church-dominated state would have been a horror to them comes as news to me.

Can you point me to where I can read up on Padraig Pearse's attitude towards the patriarchy, or Thomas Clarke's opinion on LGBTQ issues? Where can I learn about what Eamon Ceannt believed with regard to intersectional feminism, or find out JM Plunkett's views on toxic masculinity? I want to learn.
Just look at the proclamation or read Hyde or Yeats about the change they were expecting and compare to what actually happened. Many of the elites who drove independence were  progressive. The people were not  . You cannot change groupthink overnight.

Longford might nick this one. The Mullinalaghta boys can beat the Slashers and Clonguish so the Flourbags won't scare them.

Two ethnic Albanians with the goals and Xhaka with a double eagle celebration. His father was imprisoned for three years fire protesting against Milosevic.
The Serb  fans were whistling the 2 all match. 
Kosovo v Serbia is very strong

That was the best game of this World cup so far. Fitting that Shaqiri scored the winning goal as he was the best player on the pitch 2nd half.
It was  a Balkan derby. Over half the Swiss ream are Kosovars,  Macedonians etc

Parking out the Nenagh Road is fine. There are numerous little 5 car parks in fields, but you'll see a pile of people on both sides of the road all the way up from Thurles Crokes AC (which is a big car park itself) all the way out to the Newport/Borrisileigh junction on the Nenagh road.

A right Hoor of a place to get out of after a game !
You can sing that

World Cup performance depends on the supporting cast.  It is very like the All Ireland club in that regard. I don't think you can say Diego Armando is better cos he won a World Cup.
