McGuiness. Three years ago. As simple and as immovable a repudiation of the responses above as you could find. Even in his peacemaker persona the mask slipped far too easily for the comfort of everyone in the south or with a conscience, even.

But don't let facts get in the way of the nonsense. They rarely have when it comes to anything in the north.

Those in the south who are like you have to dress it up as you do, because the thought that those in the north are exactly like you, and, but for the grace of god, are you, becomes too much to bear when you think about about what was done to help. Northern nationalists were on their own at the stroke of a pen - given how that state was administered thereafter, conflict was inevitable - and its rarely pretty. So watch injustice inflicted on your countrymen and do nothing, then give out when someone does do something. Admirable indeed.

Super post.  The likes of Syferus,  and those other folk I had the misfortune of reading on the comments section (I should know better)  re McGuinness typifies how the Internet has given a voice to folk who spout on various subjects without having a feckin clue.

William Crawley after making a complete p***k of himself...he had Cal Thomas on talking about the inauguration and he interrupted him with a typical inane comment when Thomas was trying to make a valid point...Thomas lost it and basically told him to stick his programme up his hole and hung up. ;D ;D


The same right wing republican chap Matt Cooper has on?!

Syferus is a silly young gobdaw taking his views from British media outlets.
He's still entitled to his opinion and no doubt when he reaches 25 and his frontal lobes develops he might just learn that the world isn't one dimensional.
And by Jases in Derry it certainly wasn't from 1968 onwards.

I'll tell Michael Mulligan you're still genuflecting to your photo of Comrade McGuiness (does anyone actually believe he severed ties with the Provos in 1974 like he says he did?) in the mornings next time I'm in. He'll be well pleased.

The rest of us still see McGuinness for what he is. A divisive figure that did more to drive communities apart than bring them together.

Who's 'us' ?

The club must have trouble getting the players to support fundraising

That's some assumption to make!  You do realise it costs around 40k to keep an average size club going / year (if the pitch is well maintained)?  Add another 10k to that..... 
I've zero problem with standing orders to help run the club,  ie pitch maintenance,  heating,  lights,  kit etc...,  but asking boys to dip monthly for a mercenary is ridiculous.  As shark says,  a well to do benefactor will cough up the cash and rig it through their books.  I'd be very surprised if players paying for an outside manager if common,  I'd say the story above is an exception to the rule and you'd nearly question the naivety of the committee for thinking this is the route to go down re paying managers

Yer behind the curve lads. KAT has been gone for a while - it got raided in 2016 and was shut down. The 'proxies' (they have nothing to proxy anymore) are just taking the old KAT torrent database and a few new torrents, if that. Seeder to leecher ratios tend to be very poor on those imitation sites.

If you want a general use torrent site this is by far your best bet -

1.8gb photoshop cs6 downloaded from kickass on sat in less than 15 mins. The seed count was low,  but no complaints from me!

slightly off-topic-ish.
Anyone know where I could download a copy of Microsoft Project etc?

unless you're paying for the software, you're bang on topic!

Kickass would prob be your best bet. Google kickass uk proxy, click the 2nd or 3rd link and connect to it via a proxy site

Yea there has been a massive crack down on them. Haven't used one a while now so would be interested to see what other people are using

Downloaded some photo editing software from kickass over the weekend.  You have to go via a proxy site.  First time in a good while right enough.

Would there be a lot of poultry farmers in Tyrone and Fernanagh ???

Tyrone is has almost as many hen houses as it has wind turbines.  Possibly the highest density of both in the country.

It is incredible the amount of wind farms that have sprung up across the county.

I drove across from Garvaghey to Carrickmore and into Pomeroy last week and there must have been 100 of them built or in construction. There has to be some kind of lucrative scheme going on there, as well as fast tracking planning permission.

It is ridiculous the amount of them that is going up in that area. They really are a blight on the countryside and people are just letting it happen.

Rising sea levels caused by global warming which has a direct link to greenhouse gas emissions from non-renewable energy sources will be a considerably more serious blight in the decades to come.

Or slap one nuclear power plant up at magiligan, far cheaper, less CO2 emissions, powers the whole place and no one even knows its there

Magilligan is built on reclaimed land.. You'd want to build it on higher ground to get value for money!  Garvaghy?  ;D

Jones made a meal of it to a point against West Ham but there's no doubt he was caught high up on the leg and it could have been a sore one. I wouldn't say dangerous but probably sore. I think they're all at it and it makes games harder to watch for sure.

agreed, a real gear grinder !

Milner should have triple somersaulted la Phil Jones v West Ham :D

Can you show us that video of the triple somersault please? I watched that game and I missed the triple somersault.

not quite a triple somersault but the theatrics were embarrassing...Same on Sun, bit of contact, go down screaming and clutching your shin-pad, it's part of Mourinho's philosophy, always has been
