No alcohol allowed in the stadium but there will be ample supplies of Horlicks, Werther Originals and incontinence pads.
Irelands Own have brought out a special commemorative issue

No campaign have defaced Benbulben in Sligo this morning. That'll help tourism. Thanks.

Nearly as good an idea as murdering the elderly member of the Royal family and a young boy up the road.

I'm more familiar with Omagh as my friend had a run in with the FBI agent involved.

I thought that it was the boys out in Langley ran that one.

What are their Arab brothers doing to help the Palestinians? Sweet FA except to use their plight as a propaganda tool to keep their own people subjugated. Or maybe the likes of Iran Iraq Saudi Arabia Yemen Syria Egypt are so busy introducing human rights, democracy, equality for women for their own people that they havent time for the Palestinians

Bob Geldof is appealing on men to vote Yes.  Krusty the clown wasn't available.
Why the f**k do people think we will allow Geldof Bono etc influence how we vote

Maybe he can go down the Liffey with a megaphone shouting down people he doesn't agree with.  It worked real well for him with Brexit

Isn't the Liffey smelly enough?

Next stop Wembley! What's the chances of getting a ticket? Assume villa and Fulham websites will sell majority and then possibly some on the Wembley site that the touts will likely gather up  :'(

Read villa will be allocated 38,000. Id say they will be snapped up quite quickly.

Some great performances over the 2 legs from villa.  I'm sure it wasnt great for the neutral but by god was it tense.  Fulham will rightly be favourites for the final but villa are of course well capable of it.

If you’ve been to a game this season you’ll have a good chance. If you’ve been to 3 or more you’re guaranteed. Fulham are probably a better team. Their midfield 3 are excellent and Mitrovic is a cut above the Championship. However Villa have an edge on experience, and as you rightly point out they had some big performances in the Boro games, mainly from those experienced players - Jedinak, Terry, Hutton.

Fulham are a nice tidy side but there is experience at Villa both on and off the pitch. Not much difference between them in the league. Whoever makes it through will have a lot of buying to do.
Good championship panels but bottom 6 Premiership.

Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador over the massacre

Turkey. That great upholder of human rights. How are the Kurds doing these days?

Ireland finished in the middle of the pack.

Stupid hostess gave away the final outcome before announcing the final vote.

She did have a couple of good points though

Offaly are doing their bit at underage level and hopefully this will come through over the next few years.

Whatever about the Ulster championship it will be interesting to see how the Dubs would do if the "Super 8s" land them in Clones to meet Armagh Tyrone or Donegal

The main thing was that we showed how cool we are with a couple of gobshites dancing together

There are still problems with equality in social housing. If nelson mccausland has any sort of responsibility for anything you can be sure there will be inequalitie
s.
The main problem with allocation of social housing that it is being given to some useless dirtbird on benefits instead of a decent family that are doing their best on minimum wage

And that will probably be the most common position. I didn't mean to be disparaging by referring to 'short-term grumblers' - people have to look after themselves and ensure they have the best future they can - but I believe those grumbles will be well alleviated by the time a vote comes round, i.e. there will be money available so as to give immediate, rather than merely aspirational economic benefits

You've made some very good points haranguerer.
There are issues in the South that many Northerners would want to see tackled. Housing and homelessness being a major one. The South needs to tackle these effectively. Reunification will throw up lots of hurdles expected and unexpected. Being able to demonstrate an ability to tackle them would be key.
And that's why it isn't only Sinn Fein needs to welcome unionists. All pro unity parties should be making the case
