Can people in Donegal confirm that the Irish economy is going ok

The best cure for Donegal's economic problems is SFs other project of uniting Ireland.

I would imagine the completion of the A5 project would be of great benefit to Donegal and the North West in general. Sinn Fein have been a bit quiet on this. Should have been finished by now....

Given that the Strabane-Lifford bridge is the gateway to the A5 route to Monaghan and SF shifted the initial works to Derry Strabane which has the low through flow of traffic just to buy votes in Foyle would be enough to keep them quiet.  Not sure why the Donegal TDs haven't been making much noise given that RoI money is essential to the project and the building of the least used part of the road from Strabane to Derry and the section with the highest traffic flow between Strabane and Omagh won't be built until the other two sections are completed and the by-pass of the main bottleneck in Omagh will be the last piece to be built many years into the future.

When did this happen and what SF person made this decision?
Whoever it was must have a loaf of bread for brains

I've had numerous run-ins with Mark Allen and he's a complete bell end. Forgetting the whole GAWA and the flags, he's just not a nice guy. Someone mentioned a list of sport stars from the North earlier and tellingly there wasn't a GAA player mentioned.
Get the chip off your shoulder
 If you want to be pedantic O Neill played gaa for Derry but all the names mentioned won fame at international level. Of course there are certain gobshites who spout equality bullshit but won't recognise any achievement unless they are from their own narrow minded community

A lot of good fixtures there. Hopefully no weather disruptions. It would be nice if players being interviewed after could make an effort to speak their native language

Native language generally refers to the language someone has been exposed to from birth. For the overwhelming majority of people in Ireland, this is English.
Do you really think that the majority of GAA supporters would agree with that English is their native language?

In my experience, they certainly do.
The majority have a sentimental attachment to the Irish language and generally wish they had a better understanding of it but wouldn't take any positive steps, such as attending Irish language classes, improve their knowledge of the language.
I'd say your experience is very limited so.

Not going great round here but voting for Sinn Féin won't do anything for us.

Perhaps Not, but has any other party done anything?
No as we all know too well.
Need some form of tax incentives to get companies to move some of their operations out of overcrowded Dublin  to underprivileged areas.
But with th'internet at 1997........
Contrary to eu law.
And anyway you will have some nimbly act the bollix like in Athenry.  People in rural areas can't have it both ways and our Dublin 4 Taisce pals will object so as to keep our natural boglands or such

Delighted for him in much the same way I am delighted when McIlroy wins.  Find it hard to stomach when they're draped in their flag
Then you have scrotes like McGregor pals dragging the Tricolour along the ground and you find nothing wrong with that. Move on FFS. Think of Best McIlroy O Neill Higgins AP McCoy Dunwoody Joey and Robbie Dunlop and all the other great sportsmen that came out the North and consider yourself lucky to have seen them compete.
Allen deserves his success and Wilson will have his day too

There has to be some representative from the North to keep evetyone on side and prevent a North South split. A Dublin based leadership could very easily fall into a Dublin 4 media mentality and actually forget what happens on the ground around the country.
At this point we are moving to a "Its the economy" viewpoint. People will want more from Mary Lou than the "tax the rich" shite of the left.
Any of the tradesmen I know who are back in business with the construction boom earn their good money and arent in favour of paying extra tax to feed scroungers

Maybe its time for the players to tell these coaches to "feck off. I'm going to play and train with my club and generally limit my involvement so that I have a life"

Yeah but their name,History etc should be attractive

There is a lot to be said for having Bricks and mortar when Purchasing a Club!

Not particularly. Around Europe many of the big clubs are groundsharing facilities owned by the city councils. It would depend a lot on the state of the stadium. If you have to put a lot of funds into renovating a ground it means less for day to day spending.
From a League of Ireland view Rovers get use of a fairly modern stadium in Tallaght. Bohs and Shels are going to groundshare a renovated Dalymount. Irish clubs will never get massive crowds while the "greatest supporters in the world" traipse over to England and Scotland every weekend

The offaly lads were outside the Pale but faithful to England according to Wiki.
If you weren't so ignorant and studied your history you would know the Offaly lads did their bit unlike the Galway lads queuing up to join the Connaught Rangers

All quiet from the Shinnerbots. They'll accept Scapaticci being on the British payroll but are gobsmacked that Dessie the TV repairman has got away with getting the full monty from the Free State payroll

Can she play in goal?

Afraid not. She's great up front though.
Flanagan could show her how to do a bit of kicking

At least someone in Sinn Fein has a bit of cop on. Good man Dessie. Tell those gobshites that want to follow the average industrial wage shit to get a bit of sense. Anyone on the average industrial wage would jump at a chance of getting a TD's packet.
It will be fun seeing the usual crew trying to defend the Shinners about turn or is it one rule for the newbies and another for Adams old soldiers

So Keaney back on the panel and now Tom Ryan from Limerick has transferred to Cuala/Dublin - interesting summer beckons anyway
Absolutely. Gilroy seems intent on doing a good job. Danny Sutcliffe back, Paul Winters in good form. It looks like a united camp who have a good panel of players. A lot of these lads have had underage success and have played to all ireland finals,leinster finals and League finals. Not necessarily winning out but have the experience of meeting the best along the way
