Looks like Ruairi Corrigan is fit again after nearly a year out.

That's a big plus for us

Heck no. Keep him fit for the next round.

Localised word for dunghill? Certainly my Dad pronounced it the way you spelt it.

Weren't you posh!

Hell yeah. One of my weekly chores used to be burying the dry toilet in the dunkle.

All this nonsense about her being found out  now the 'mainland' know all about the party will not make one iota of difference to DUP.

If they fell in a dunkle of shite they would come out smelling of roses

Maybe Pete will have the Armagh job before he leaves the Athletic Grounds!

Ruth Dudley Edwards column in the Belfast Telegraph

When in the 1980s I began to know Northern Ireland politicians well, I passed through the stage of being beguiled by nationalist charm and repelled by unionist truculence until I reached the conclusion that, when you looked at substance rather than style, unionists were frequently nicer than they seemed and nationalists the opposite.

Republicans, of course, were a different matter.

While there are individual Sinn Fein supporters for whom I have a reluctant liking, I have nothing but contempt for the leadership of the cult which Adams, Martin McGuinness and their comrades fashioned out of their murder machine.

I’ve known a fair few Protestant bigots, but what made Sinn Fein so dreadful was the way in which it taught its supporters to hate their neighbours by wildly exaggerating historical wrongs, demonising their victims, and embracing all the propaganda techniques of George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth in 1984.

According to the polls, there would be a lot of nationalists and SF voters on this board. You've no substance. Plus, have you been taught to hate your neighbours? Please tell.

Is there a curtain raiser match on Sunday?

From Wikipedia:
The FIFA Confederations Cup is an international association football tournament for national teams, currently held every four years by FIFA.
Number of teams: 8 (from 6 confederations)

How are the 8 teams chosen?

Nice payout tonight backing Brooks at 40-1 ;)

The man hit a three wood at 18 over three hundred and fifty yards, amazing.

That course was neutered, McIlroy was 100 percent correct to complain, ten under would have won any other us Open bar the one in 2011 when Rory won at 16 under, they neutered this course to accommodate the egos of the players and they detracted from the tournament somewhat as a result.

Brilliant win for Koepka, he is one cool customer, I think the yanks are going to own us for a while in the Ryder Cup, they are scary good.

Plus, he had an Irishman Ricky Elliott caddying for him.

I was one of those that thought Mickey Harte's days were numbered. Life in the old dog yet.

Sorry but the 200 million remark didn't come across at all well also when he starts slagging the guys spelling then you know he has lost the argument.

Sorry, but you're wrong. He's got every right to fight fire with fire.

He has every right, but he needs to learn diplomacy, and just not reply to such taunts. Achieving a twitter slam dunk won't win any more majors.

Is it just me or is Sarah looking well tonight. Looks like a bit of a makeover

Plenty of hair on top - always looks well.

You would wonder what input JP is permitted with Rory - there were a number of times last night when he should have hit 3 wood off the tee and worked to keep himself in the tournament when he was struggling so much with the new driver.

Also, you just cant rock up to a major and expect to perform when you have as little golf played YTD as Rory - its a different game when you have a card in your arse pocket!

Rory was driving so badly that on the shortish 15th hole he decided to take a 3-wood for safety. He put it in the rough.

JP is a yes man.

What do you make of this:


Just horrendous on many fronts.

I had heard about his earlier today but had not read the post or listened to the recording.

Firstly, the needs of the child are paramount in all safeguarding situations and it is clear this is far from what has happened for this poor child.

These parents were obviously at their wits end to take the step of recording the teacher.  Even if only elements of their story are true then it is a horrendous indictment of Catholic education that prides itself on its special Christian ethos and care for the individual never mind the most vulnerable in the classroom/society.

It provides a warning to teachers on their vulnerability with the advances in technology.  The teacher in secondary school knows that as many as 30 mobile phones can be recording audio and video in every situation in the classroom.  Hopefully, they remain composed and give no hostages to fortune regardless of provocation.  The primary school teacher has been much less vulnerable to such activity until now.

The parents have also highlighted the education system's worst kept secret that matters are cleared up by teachers leaving the profession on ill-health or retirement or being given a reference to move on to another school.  Where have we heard of such methods before?


It is every teacher's worst nightmare to lose their cool and to have it recorded on a smart phone which can be posted on line for all.  Working in the classroom with some of today's teenagers is very difficult job and even the best and most experienced teachers can find it tough going at times.  It happens and even outside school on a night out the teacher can find his/her pupils ready to video any indiscretion and post it on line.  It happens.

Perhaps but it seems like an odd comment to post in relation to this story. I wouldn't consider the child being autistic as provocation.

There are always two sides to every story. It is hard to imagine that a teacher could be so mean without some kind of motivation.

Rory's balance upset his swing yesterday. Possibly caused by extra weight down his left side. Actually his left arm. Specifically, his left hand.

With the rough they have - I'd be counting Speith out - he's been wayward off the tee lately
Paper today says it's a very forgiving golf course, not at all like the usual US Open courses. So big hitters very much favoured and don't necessarily have to be always straight.

Look up the video of Kevin Na playing out of rough!!

He'll never be a big name
