Hopefully the result will put some urgency and money into the selection of a new manager.

I expect no less than a medal from the Queen of England for the manager and captain.

Could RDE and O'Hanlon be any further up the arses of unionism?

I know they browse GAABoard, so just to let the girls know, there is more to journalism that "unionist good, nationalist bad".

But if a damp squib so far Matsuyama holding his own and the rest floundering around him.

Hate to see anything bad happen to him but would like at least some drama!

It still looks like he is saying:
"Why am I here?"
"What is going on?"
"Who are all these people?"

lol

Jesus wept. Here is the wonderfully clever Eilis explaining to everyone that it's all the big bad EU's fault.

Worse, all the other idiots weighing in behind her, giving her credance and massaging her ego.

Shameful.

I like the way Matsuyama carries himself. He looks humble, not what you expect from golfers!

They're the only party on the island with UI in their manifesto and they're the biggest party on the island, they're driving it at present and inviting collaboration, which the establishment in both states are roundly ignoring.

Unionists don't want it by definition, which is fine, equally as legitimate as Nationalists wanting it.

FF/FG in the south don't want it as they know it breaks the hegemony and puts them on the back foot, it would require them to deal with the 6 counties which they have no notion of doing.

SDLP while in serious decline are wedded to FF which puts them in no mans land.

Its kinda SF or nothing presently until others step up. I'd say the Tories would be more willing than anyone the way things are going.

Why do people keep claiming FF/FG don't want a united Ireland? To be fair to them no on in the south really knows (or probably cares) if they do or not as it's not an issue at the moment. It has never been an issue come general elections and the public aren't pressuring them to focus on it.

As far as I can tell its only SF calling for this at the moment so why haven't they published their proposals, especially as they expect to be in government in the south after the next election

Could you imagine FF/FG deciding that Mayo was worth feck all, then governing over 25 counties while letting Mayo look after themselves? That is exactly what they're doing to Irish in the occupied six.

In other words, Nationalists have done fcuk-all but talk about/plan for a UI for the last 100 years, the problem being that they've been talking amongst themselves (alone  ;)), with nothing conciliatory or persuasive to say to Unionism.

People like John Hume and Gerry Adams said plenty in the way of conciliation to unionism over the years. It's hardly their fault if unionists can't hear it.  Latest example: The Claire Byrne show.

Leo varadkar: Any united Ireland will have to respect the British identity of the unionists.

Mary Lou McDonald: Any united Ireland will have to respect the British identity of the unionists.

MicheŠl Martin: Any united Ireland will have to respect the British identity of the unionists.

Gregory Campbell: "Haha ha! You just don't get it, do you?! We're British!"

There are none so deaf as those who will not hear.

Exactly.

Ruth fooking Edwards is now lecturing about quotation marks on Twitter. The message is still loyalists good, nationalists bad.

Can someone go to her tweet on Twitter and post the following:

I quote "RDE is a twat"

Thought Shinners would have welcomed the violence last night

Shure didn't they do that for 30 years!

Lots of Twitter talk of retaliations tonight

Seems like there could be a serious escalation

Hopefully not

Is there a whatabouttery award thread? I nominate this post.

And no amount of assurances of a post-UI state being a "warm house for Unionists" will persuade them to take a chance on it, why should they? It is still remembered that in 1921, the Unionist/Protestant population of the Free State was just over 10%, half a century later it was what demographers deem "statistically insignificant" i.e. under 2 1/2 per cent. (At the same time, the Nationalist/Catholic population in NI was going the other way).

- The DUP took a chance on Brexit. How did that work out for you?
- How much money would you need to make it a warm house? £20k per annum person? £50k per annum per family?
- Would you look forward to live in a world where Orange marches are truely joyous occasions and a draw to tourists?
- You can still genuflect to the Queen - nobody is stopping you. She will still send you a letter when you reach 100
- An all-ireland soccer team could actually compete
- In Westminster, Unionist politicians are very small fish in very large pond. In the Dail, Unionist politicians would have real influence and could even partner in government
- But you're still thinking about the money, eh?

Olivia Mehaffey from Banbridge is currently sitting in 2nd place at the Augusta womens amateur tournament.

She's one shot back heading to the back 9 of the final round.

I think she started in Tandragee Golf Club.

I wouldn't have much time for Eilis O'Hanlon as a writer

But maybe she was correct in some of what she said

Certainly the Shinnerbots on this forum seem very intent on proving her right

Syd you ballix, you got an honourable mention...
