Title: Sunday Life article
Post by: Therealdonald on March 09, 2018, 06:23:46 PM
First time opening a thread men and women, heard an ad on the wireless there about a top GAA player who had to flee under dissident threat to Australia? Is this the case or is it just the Sunday Life being extravagant with the truth?

That might be fake news the real Donald.  Any more specifics?

Wasn't McCarron run out of Tyrone a few years ago?

Literally that's all it said. It was a proper advertisement but I can't find anything online or anything. In this case I suspect its more Over the top news as opposed to fake news.

Sunday Life a total rag. Don't let yourself get sucked in.

Aww well aware it's a rag and I don't normally read it. But if they're using the GAA as a headline they must reckon they have a big story.

Eh? No.

Just the usual derision thrown at the Sindo and the Indo here makes little sense in the context of an article that hasn’t been published yet. And if the player is saying what the headline is, it’s hardly the Sindo that people should be focusing on anyways.

The term 'GAA star' is basically used by the media to describe anyone who ever kicked a ball in his life.

Sickens my shite that. A lot of the papers up north are prone to using that regularly.

In terms of this one tomorrow it’s obviously about drumming up interest in that the lad is a club player as opposed to some high profile GAA star. The story is very much real though and shows the scum that are still hanging around these parts.

Typical rag shit by the Sunday Life. Used to only buy it for the jobs section!!!

Don’t know anything about the lad himself or the actual story. On a general note though I see square ball referring to the dissidents as scumbags, which they undoubtedly are. The thing is they wouldn’t take or threaten to take this action if the lad or any other person was on the straight. In certain areas, and I very much include my own , there is a vacuum of law and order where the ‘street’ rules apply. Would that be the case where this lad is from? I’m curious as for all the support SF have given to the Polcing Board and the PCSPs etc there is still a huge level of distrust in the police and the same back from them. I had first hand experience of it recently and spoke to a friend who works in the prosecution services and they were very taken aback about what was happening. Definite disparity of attitudes towards people by the police and this just creates further gaps and opportunities for the likes of dissidents or drug dealers or general hard men criminals to ‘enforce the law’ and funnily the joes on the street where I’m from anyway often think back to a time when there was no common criminality due to the ‘community policing’.

In fairness his family were the ones telling their side of the story so not as if the Sunday Life have exposed it. Smart move by them imo.

It comes up in many areas. Plenty of people say there wouldn't be as many hoods about Lower Falls, students acting the maggot in the Holylands, people getting robbed in rural areas etc. if there was still the potential to get the business end of a baseball bat or the Black & Decker treatment. I'm not sure the Troubles is a time we want be harking back to as a golden age of community policing.

Been many an example of someone falling foul of an IRA man or relative and receiving some treatment. Scumbags.

There are plenty of people on the straight and narrow in our communities who have been targeted by paramilitaries.

He played a bit of underage and may have been on the odd McKenna cup panel but that's about it.

The stories posted in the links to Irish Times and Belfast Telegraph both name Dean McNally of Kildress.  This is the same boy. Fairly talented defender probably played his best football for UUJ in the Sigerson and did represent Tyrone.

I haven't seen the Sunday Life article and not sure who that refers to.

Belfast Telegraph cover the story of a fella having to flea in today's edition, more likely to be what the Sunday Life article refers to and this is a different fella from Pomeroy, young lad only 20.

Terrible situation for the family involved.

As a previous poster advised, Dean McNally is not from Pomeroy. He would have been born and raised in kildress, a neighbouring parish of Pomeroy and plays club football for them. I believe his mother now lives in Pomeroy hence the address in the newspaper article.

He's been named now by the family anyway in an attempt to sort this all out.
This relates to the original post in this thread, FYI.
