"Would you believe I have an entire thread dedicated to me on gaaboard?"
"Do you, Joe?"
"Oh aye, it's true. 700 PAGES long."
"Hang on, I'm just looking at it here and it's only 300 pages long, Joe."
"Did I ever tell you about the time myself and big Geoffrey McGonigle went on safari and he tried to smuggle a giraffe onto the plane home?"

FFS! It wasnt a giraffe, it was an elephant. Dungiven use it now for bringing young lads to matches and the elephants obeys instructions given in Irish

I have been in Irish bars and clubs all over London and have seen grown men and women cry when the anthem is broadcast before big matches every Summer. Even though they are gone from Ireland for many years these men and women still want the link with "home"

The Israeli army posted a statement on Twitter on Saturday apparently accepting full responsibility for the killings a day earlier of 15 Palestinians as thousands took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza.

The army then quickly deleted the admission – as more evidence of war crimes by its soldiers came to light – but not before a copy was made by the human rights group B’Tselem.

The now-deleted tweet from the official @IDFSpokesperson account stated: “Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed.”

Barely makes a ripple here, think I heard it mentioned briefly on one news report.
You do realise there is a Royal Wedding coming up and Vogue Williams has a new hairstyle. The media have more to cover than conflicts in the Middle East

No use standing on the back of a lorry in West Tyrone roaring about a United Ireland. Show the people that they would be better off in a United Ireland. Show them how the State would be  without excessive taxation. And dont use the old shite comment that the Brits will pay. They wont

I find it very, ahem, "interesting" that so many men deny there is such a thing as rape culture.

Who denies this?

Accepting it in the abstract but denying it in individual cases seems to be the modus operandi for people like yourself. Every major case is the exception to the rule in your eyes.

Why not take each case as it is and look at the facts first before cutting everyone down!

Why not take into account context so?
You're just lucky sheep can't speak

Peter Hain was on radio about her this morning. He knows the story and is very simplistic to just say she was a bad 'un. She suffered terribly and was very courageous in the face of oppression bit in later years did things were not just. He thinks 'things went to her head' later on.
And Stalin loved Labrador puppies

Not justifying what she's alleged to have done but she faced the worst brutality from her oppressors so is not black and white... actually it is black and white! Interesting on Stalin, I didn't know that.

The brutality of her oppressors doesn't justify the cruelty she inflicted on black South Africans.

Winnie Mandela, 81.
Child murderer, corrupt individual living off her name.
No loss

They were tough times in appartheidt South Africa. She did what she had to do.
She did what she had to do to line her own pockets. Mandela wasn't long dumping her after being released from prison. There will always be gobshites like you to be used as useful idiots to support crooks like her.

Adrian had one placed also.....a great horseman like his brother in law but an awful battle to survive

Elite NH is gone like the flat classics
There may be some chance when the economy is picking up and small trainers can make a bit from point to points and maybe selling on some animal with potential but if things go down paying training fees will be well down people's priority

13 runners from 30 for one trainer .

High end NH racing is gone to be a f**king joke..... a monopoly of elliott and willie.

Mallow much more entertaining today for the normal man in street
Indeed. Handy little winner there today for Adrian Maguire and son Finian.

Mallow will always be Mallow not Cork racecourse and the Junction will always be the Junction and not Tipperary

One for her head and one for yours.

FFS will uou lighten up.......Id bet 90% of fellas were thinking exactly the same thing

You can wrap yourself in sheeps wool if you were triggered by my comment

Why when Syferus is mentioned it always comes back to sheep?

Grade 1 (4.30pm) at Fairyhouse yesterday with nine runners: five of them Mullins and the other four Elliott. Ridiculous.
It is putting a lot of the shop punters off. How many times have we seen Mulluns/Eliott favourites turned over by outsiders from the same stable? I was a reluctant backer of Irish based jump stables anyway but really gone off them this season. At least on the flat Bolger Weld etc are not overwhelmed by O Brien.

Why don't punters speculate on the outsiders then?

At least they aren't dominating the Irish national today 😂

Punters will follow what form leads them to believe is the form horse. There could be three or four outsiders from the one stable in some races

Kilkenny MOM? Didn't think he was even in the running. Thought Mannion was very good for Dublin.
TG4 man of the match. Every time!!

Although Con O'Callaghan will give him a run for his money in future league campaigns (assuming the Cuala hurling juggernaut gets held up at some stage)

Has he fluent Irish ? That seems to help with TG4  ;)
Unless you are a pure thicko anyone who went through school should be able to put a few sentences together for a TG4 interview. The TG4 team arent tyrants and will help If the player is willing.
