General discussion / Re: Bruton says Easter Rising was "unnecessary"
« on: August 08, 2014, 09:35:52 AM »
What is our fascination with the bloody side of things only?

Where is the celebration of Catholic Emancipation?
Where is the celebration of the achievements of the Land League?

Leaving aside opinions on 1916, why do we feel (Britain does this to an absurd degree) the need to celebrate war and conflict and we are inclined to ignore the other successes on the road to (in our case) independence.

By "in our case", I assume you mean in the case of just a part of the nation?

And to think, Ireland's position on this, as far as foreign affairs are concerned, is being represented by the horrible, deceitful, bitter, west-brit, pro-Israeli b****rd Charlie Flanagan  :'(

Can't say I'm bursting with sympathy for anyone who willingly gets involved in drug trafficking. They made their bed, they can lie in it.

Interesting story.

Yeah, what struck me was the inability and/or unwillingness of her mother and sister to admit that she (Michaella) had done anything wrong.  They were right on the edge of portraying her as some sort of victim in the process.  Seems that the prison isn't quite the hell hole some of the media described at the time.

They went beyond the edge in that regard long ago, when they set up an online donations site for her legal fees.

So far, people have donated 4,410 to help a drugs smuggler  :-\

I know all that, but is it not a case of Belfast parades and protests being exploited by paramilitaries on both sides?

Do explain

No walkey home this year again.  ;D

Unionists have collectively walked out of the talks before they've properly started. Showing, once again, that leadership is a concept beyond them and that their entire political philosophy, across the board, is to appeal to the lowest form of knuckle-draggers in society. Outrageous. Dangerous.

Looks like Willie hasn't been allowed to moderate the comments on his photos during his leave of absence:

Cavanagh is getting the thick end of this as he is now the main culprit in a team who are famous for diving. It started on a mass scale in the 2003 Ulster championship. Handy frees in and around the 14/21, easy scores.  Its continued ever since. Do parts the media / certain pundits have it in for Tyrone? Maybe, but its been earned. Cut out the diving and the so called anti-Tyrone agenda ends.
Diving is a fierce blight on what is a physical / manly game

Utter drivel. To pick out Tyrone as being any worse than any other team is an opinion based on nothing more than buying the waffle being spouted in the RTE studio. Dessie Mone gave a couple of masterclasses in diving last day out. Does anyone care? No. Why? Sure Joe hasn't told us to worry about him. It's only "cheating" when Tyrone do it.

but its not drivel. Tyrone are, by some stretch the market leaders here. I dont anyone to tell me that. If it was Donegal, Kerry whoever, I'd call it the same. Its an anti-diving rant

It's drivel of the highest order, spouted by those who need good ol' Joe to tell them what to think. An anti-diving rant? Is that why you're giving Mone such a hard time? Oh wait....

So it's not possible for someone who watched the game on BBC and saw absolutely no RTE coverage of the game to draw the conclusion that they think Cavanagh dived a lot? Is that what you're saying? Every conclusion that Cavanagh dived a lot must have been influenced by Joe Brolly?

You're giving Joe Brolly a lot of credibilitiy there.  As well as various other flaws in your argument...

Is there an 11th commandment with some of you Tyrone posters sometimes "Thou shalt not question Tyrone"?

So it's just a coincidence that the widespread "Cavanagh's a diver" thing only started two Tyrone games ago, when Joe first went on a rant about it? Odd too that the general public aren't hounding Dessie Mone for his diving on Sunday too then, you know, saying as people aren't just being led by Brolly like?

See Mr. Bryson on holiday in Turkey with his friends. Genuinely confused here, what the f**k are they doing? Did they really bring flags and drums to Turkey so they could march up and down and sing the Sash?

They are a very strange group of people.

Probably just trying to make amends with the fellow fleggers after letting the side down so badly on his last trip to Turkey.

  watched 1st half on sky+ HD.

5min37.  .dessie mone dives after being nudged from behind by c. McGinley. mone warned by ref.

8min30. vinny corey deliberately hand-trips McGinley TWICE in full view of linesman mcquillan and ref.free given to mon for pickup off ground.strange he sees pickup but not 2  hand trips which are much more obvious and cynical than mccurrys elbow trip.

9th min. .penrose pulled back by Kelly,whistle blows well after foul,ref gives free out for ?overcarrying. very harsh!

14min31..  k hughes slips as he shoots for score, ref DIDNT have his arm raised for advantage so why did he give a free when the ball landed short?  there was NO foul.

16min11... vinny corey dives/goes down easily for soft free,sean protests,there was minimal contact. ?ref conned again!

23min07..  dessie mone goes down easily in box,after hesitation ref gives penalty,then consults via radio again with linesman/standby referee mcquillan and gives mcnabb yellow.it was barely a foul,def not a yellow

28min14..  drew wylie pulls big sean down behind him with his left hand right in front of mcquillan and ref.mon get free.sean doesn't bother protesting(prob assumes both are blind/subconsciously influenced by joe 93 rants)

29min50..  penrose is "taken out" by colin walshe at corner flag, again in full view of ref and mcquillan.!no free,! unbelieveable!!

36min47..  penrose pulls down k duffy by arm.free to tyrone,ref duped again.
If only the ref had HD.
If only Joe Brolly had HD. Or a pair of eyes. Or if only people would talk about these things above that we all witnessed, instead of every mouthpiece in Ireland arguing blindly about whatever Joe has told them to think. Incidentally, the Vinny Corey hand trip occurred almost within touching distance of the linesman Joe McQuillan.

Remember it vividly,took the shine off the victory.Also remember Down beating Monaghan in Armagh next day,in front of a very sombre crowd almost in complete silence.

Hard to think the ceasefires were only a few months away.Remember another atrocity shortly before when loyalists shot an 18 year old catholic schoolboy in an amusement arcade in Armagh city.Desperate times

Yeah that was Gavin McShane, there was another young lad McArdle killed in that attack.  The terrible irony of the tragedy there is that Gavin's mother was caught up in a bomb attack when she was pregnant with him and actually lost her eye.  She survived that only to suffer the horrible murder of her son 18 years later.  Too many tragic memories.

The Step Inn bomb. An interesting piece on this in Lethal Allies outlining how the RUC had intelligence reports weeks before that this bomb was being planned at the home of an RUC reservist, with the intention of being sent to Castleblaney before a change of plan directed it to the Step Inn. Despite the RUC Special Branch knowing the names of most, if not all of the bombers (as a result of intelligence and surveillance in the weeks leading up to and after the bomb, but surveillance conveniently lifted while the bomb was being transported), the RUC told the DPP that they had no suspects and to this day, nobody has been charged. This bomb came just months after the bombings of Kay's Tavern in Dundalk and Donnelly's Bar in South Armagh, both of which were carried out with the involvement of serving RUC officers. Another gun and  bomb two months before the one at the Step Inn, took place at the Rock Bar. This  shooting/bombing was carried out exclusively by (four) serving RUC officers. One of these was RUC constable Ian Mitchell. This same man, two months after attacking the Rock Bar, was taking a witness statement from the father of one of Step Inn victims. Obscene.
