Last sentence is bang on MR. GAA by its very nature is parochial but there comes a time when being the best in your own area isn't good enough.

3 billboards outside ebbing missouri is a good watch.

Enjoyed it, lots of Oscar's enroute

Small enough budget I'd say. Solid acting makes it good. The mother is excellent.
Cinema or ahem, online?

An absolute moron and always has been. As funny as cancer. He should have been put up the road a long time ago. Imagine this is the best public representative you can find in the area. The mind boggles.

I remember Eamonn saying one time that Saint Brigid was nothing but an aul cnut.
That would have made her cross.

How the f**k is Holgate still on the pitch?
Nevermind the push which should have been a yellow anyway but also pulling at the Ref.
Everton only interested in hacking down Liverpool players so far. Bad tackles from Rooney and McCarthy and a few others.
Peno a little soft alright.
Soft but proper compensation for some rash challenges. Robertson showing Moreno how it's done.

Written by a 25 year old 'freelance' journo who writes clickbait pieces for the Sun, Mirror, Daily Mail and Paddy Power, enough said..

Taylor indeed could be a right knob at times but his overall legacy will be his sheer domination of his sport over a substantial period. He also suffers from the well established begrudgery syndrome that is so popular in this part of the world the more you win the more people dislike you..
It's easy to dislike someone when they are dislikeable.

McMafia anybody? Not too impressed so far. Boilerplate plot, unsympathetic characters, the lead character has the personality of a suck calf and the actor has the range of expression of a bench. We'll give it another episode, maybe.
Didn't see it but someone I know said it was generic oul shite.

Maybe it is just nice to have your efforts over a long period recognised and rewarded.I know another guy,a schoolteacher,who was honoured for his efforts to amateur drama over many decades.I joked that he should have held out for a Lordship!

I assume all those objectors here will also turn down their British pensions etc?
Doing it should be reward enough. Those from a Nationalist background accepting these awards are obviously doing so for reasons of pure vanity.

Did Seamus Heaney not turn down one of thesethings?
Don't know but he definitely turned down the Poet Laureateship (sp?).

Would you take one if it were offered?

Personally, not a chance, and I often feel disappointed in one way, yet strangely proud in another, when I see people I know get named.
I'd love to know the stats on the refusal rate by area.
No. Leaving aside the British/Irish politics I fundamentally disagree with people getting an honour for doing a job they were already rewarded for. A relative of the wife got one for being a school headmaster wrapped up as "services to education". A load of oul bollocks as it was HIS JOB. IMO they should be for voluntary sector only.
