Agree why was Donnelly not put in for Flynn in the middle

He’s not 100% fit yet.

Cleaned out in the middle of the park yet again, this time by a player from the Westerns, who play in the lowest division in county Louth, but we didn’t even try to change the kick out strategy until mid way through the second half. I may just stick pins in my eyes instead of watching the Armagh game.

Two positives from today’s games, we won’t have to pay those inflated prices into Div2 games next year and Sean og is overseeing this shitshow on 50 grand a year.

You’ll enjoy Saturday’s Irish News then!!

Can’t wait

It’s an excellent article and shows Poacher in a slightly different light than you’d expect. I’m sure most of us don’t actually know the man, other than what we see for 70 minutes along the line. He’s a very well respected coach, who just happens to be working with the opposition today, but behind it all, he’s still a Down man, a passionate one at that.

Don’t imagine that’s the plan. It’s always about him. Fecking narcissist. Last summer he had splash all over the papers withdrawing from the race for the Down job. Never in consideration!

Never in consideration because he wouldn’t have Sean og dictating how he’d have to do things the ‘Down way’. Only room for one narcissist in Down GAA.

Has he been behaving himself on the line with Carlow or is he still at his usual antics?

You'd have to want the weakest side left in it so United next please!

United definitely aren’t the weakest side left in the CL. Porto would be the dream draw. Spurs aren’t exactly pulling up trees either.
I just fancy a nice few days in Barca. Munich has been cold and damp.

Liverpool v United final anyone? Nice away day in Madrid, with hopefully Barcelona thrown in along the way for good measure.  8)

Anyone a rough idea of solicitor price to sell a site? Got a quote and it seems high given the value of the site.

A grand ish plus VAT

Shop around, you could save a decent amount just by making a few phone calls. Also watch they don’t try to throw in a few hidden extras.

I see the club formerly know as Warrenpoint had their dinner dance at the weekend. A great day for the parish with the senior team being presented with their bronze senior league medals.

As a Burren man you are undoubtedly aware that teams in Burren have not always played under the St. Mary’s name. Early teams in Burren included Corrags Clan na Gael, Wolfe Tones, Parnells and the Dreadnoughts. There was also a team known as the Hedge of Rats, maybe your family may have been represented on that particular team.

Your constant belittling of Warrenpoint/CPN is becoming a little tiresome to say the least. CPN are doing magnificent work at all levels and in both codes and this should be encouraged by anyone with an interest in GAA, wether they are from the locality or beyond. While we all enjoy local rivalry you just take things to a whole new level of fuckwhittery.

Westmeath up to second with a win over Sligo, who remain the only team in the four divisions without a point and are now relegated with two games still to play.

We were ordinary enough in the first half and two points looked a vulnerable lead with Offaly having a strong wind after the break. However, we improved steadily as the game progressed against admittedly limited opposition who relied heavily on generous frees from a fussy referee to keep in touch.

Our defence is capably organised with Wells settling in nicely at full back and Laverty an impressive newcomer at wing half while O'Hagan had another outstanding night and McKernan was a reassuring presence.

There is always likely to be a problem when we play two non-midfielders at midfield, although Flynn was a little unfortunate to be replaced so early, and we really need Donnelly back before long.

Ryan Johnston had one of those games where he kept beating men but only went sideways, while Jerome may have been fortunate to stay on when he got involved with an opponent right on the half time whistle

O'Hare was excellent again up front, where Guinness had his moments but really should have palmed in his first half chance. Quinn did not let a couple of misplaced passes worry him when he came on and finished clinically for both of his goals.

One more win should take us up, as well as earning a day out at Croke Park, which would have to go down as a very satisfactory debut league campaign for Tally.

All but one of Offaly’s scores came from frees in the first half, you could argue that many of them were dubious, but it’s something that needs to be addressed. Midfield is a worry, we rarely win primary possession, though we have started to do quite well with breaking ball, but with the introduction of the mark we really need one high fielder.  Mooney is better suited to either the half back or half forward line.
Carlow won’t be a push over in their own back yard but I do expect us to beat Louth in the final game of the league. Hopefully we’ll have done enough for a day out in Croke Park.

Congrats to Clonduff Camogs on their All Ireland success today. There’ll be a hell of a party in Hilltown tonight.

Twitter melting by the fact that the DUP have an STD

Emma Little Pengelly is the most likely source for STDs according to Ian og.

Hi all Ive been a long term reader/fan of this board and rarely have the time to contribute, but am building a 3500 sguare foot house and am looking advice on the following if theres any peoiple with experiences, Id appreciate this, ive seen a lot of stuff so its real experience im looking without the blurb.
1) Efficient heating system - at this stage Im almost certainly not going for ufloor heating - too many scare stories, so I need to go for a different system, assuming rads and probably oil - is there any options? Also insulation needs and eg heat recovery systems / solar panel experiences etc.  Pressured water systems.'
2) Smart home systems - Surround sound in a couple of rooms / lighting / security cameras / bband /tv etc.  What are the options on a sensible enough budget?

Bruno Ganz, who played Hitler in the 2004 film Downfall, has died aged 77.

The film that launched a thousand internet parodies and memes.

A good actor and an emotive, tricky part well played.
