We have Laois Wicklow and DIT in our group.

Should get out of that one all going well.

He's the one who is risking getting his skull crushed in so he might as well milk it for all its worth while he can. I'm sure the UFC are quite happy for him to do it too. I understand Brock Lesner is still the biggest draw in UFC because he brings over WWE fans, but he's in and out whenever it suits him so they need their own marketable commodity. People shouldn't pay too much heed to all the posturing really, it's business and its not going to do him any favours being a church mouse.

When are we getting fixtures?

Looking forward to something of a statement of intent from the new management. Although it is hard to do more than what we achieved in this competition but its the manner in which we play that matters.

And ultimately it needs to carry on into the league.

I've read some amount of shite over the last 48hrs about the election, (primarily what is supposedly in the recent wikileaks documents) even then everyone has their own spin on it. If Hilary stabbed someone, they'd say he fell on her knife (and vice versa). I've given up following it at this stage, whatever will be will be.

My only recommendation at this point is that the right and left at this stage should spilt off into separate countries. Otherwise you'll never get the country you want. Time to stop standing each others way and getting all annoyed about it.

Call them NEWSA-Rght and NEWSA-Left or AngryWhiteMan-istan and Pinkoleftytellytubbyland.

In Europe we'll have NouveauFrance-Droit avec NouveauFrance-Gauche.
Ireland can have Gombeen-topia and Gobshite-topia.
Part of Germany will form New Syria under mother Merkel.
Hungary and Poland probably remain unchanged.

I have friends who are raising money for the protesters.

I can't say I've kept up with this at all but I'd be inclined to side with the tribes. Sadly it seems the oil business over rules every other consideration these days.

Where is Obama on this one by the way?

It was better for Ciarán Kilkenny to stay at home and he's winning all Ireland's. We're winning f**k all. That's what it comes down to for me. I wish Nash all the best personally but I want Meath to win so I'm not happy about it. We badly need to be able to hang on to talent like Nash.

cerys Matthews is a good call
She really isn't.

Aye, she's no Adele  ::)
Didn't see anyone mention Adele. She's no Roberta Flack is for sure.

She's no John De Hart.

The JCB's are rolling in to Pairc Tailteann soon to start tearing down the place if the stories coming out from the final are true. Talk of a 25,000 to 30,000 capacity ground to be built. Exact amount of funding coming from GAA is unknown to the public at large. Outline permission for a new stand was granted in 2012 but a quick scan of the Meath CC website has no mention of a full application being granted permission.

All a bit of a mystery but sure what do you expect.

So now it turns out Conor Nash is going to the AFL after signing with Hawthorns for two years.

Well all I can say is SHIT.  :(

Best of luck to him all the same but we certainly could have done with him. Would have been hard with both the AFL and Leinster Rugby after him too.

If Pairc Tailteann is ever redeveloped I wonder what you'd have to spend on it. I reckon we wouldn't need more than a 25,000 capacity ground. Cork are spending €70m on a 50,000 seater. Nothing like that kind of money isn't really floating around these days. I suppose we're lucky to have Dunganny.

Given the way the floodlights were handled if it ever happens it needs to be taken out of the county boards hands completely.

Obviously its a complicated issue and could set some difficult precedents but ultimately I think the cake shop owner ought to have their religious views respected even if I don't personally agree with them. Plenty of other religious views are accommodated by businesses across Europe despite the questionable moral ethics of some of their practices. In this instance this is the least incendiary case I can think of and yet look at the storm its creating, and this families livelihood could be in jeopardy over it.

I've spoken to some gay lads who've told me they find it all embarrassing. In their words "Its just a bloody cake, can't they just go somewhere else, there is plenty of other places". But then they weren't that keen on gay marriage or modern gay activism in general.

Interesting graphic that illustrates what I said a few pages back. As the white demographic goes so goes the GOP.

Not sure about the source but I'd say it's close enough. What the underlying reasons for it are up for debate. Does lower taxes and limited government not appeal to non-Europeans and women?

Hillary will not be able to govern.

Wanna bet? The way the house and senate races are going, it looks like Trump is dragging the whole GOP ship down to the bottom with him. The Republicans are finished for a generation. We're looking at immigration reform, socialized medicine, death penalty abolition, gun control and a load of other progress in the next eight years with plenty of high quality Democrats waiting in the wings to step in next (Booker, Newsom, etc.). The catastrophic GW Bush years are looking more and more like an anomaly.

The GOP are finished from what I can see. They would love to go back to nominating a Jeb or a Romney but that will fail miserably as everyone knows they stand for nothing different to Hillary that really matters. They can try pandering to minorities like the democrats but they'll lose the disaffected white vote, though where that vote goes after that is anyone's guess. The libertarians are a joke.

The democrats will have their own problems keeping the neo-cons who are backing Hilary and their multi-faceted base from diverging. But as the podesta emails have shown its only a matter of keeping a "uniformed and compliant electorate".
