As a season ticket holder at Cartwheel United I'm delighted that Jamie has remained true to his roots and avoided the temptation of being lured into the big time by Armagh.  Good lad Jamie, enjoy your holiday and thanks for the entertainment you gave all us Cartwheel supporters this year

Fair play to them. They adapted to the conditions much better than us but we have no complaints. It's some record and I doubt if it'll ever even be matched never mind broken.

The Armagh County Board really did spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar when they decided to build the new stand around the Ceannarus Building. It was already a poultice before the stand was built and it remains one of the 3 worst structures at a GAA ground in Ireland, the other 2 being the concrete box at the rear of the Nally in Croke, which masquerades as a control room, and the pylon at McHale Park which is supposed to be a commentary box

It all depends on what standards you set. I agree with the 2 previous posters as regards the Athletic Grounds, it's ok, much improved on what was there, and as good as there is after Clones. It's about adequate for the present but not up to what we should expect in the future.  Ravenhill, which is almost complete is functional, but it won't win too many design awards.  The new Casement, however, will be an iconic structure offering top class facilities for years to come.  The only drawback is that it couldn't be fully covered

No, and in any case I have no wish to discuss the matter with you

Yes I am emotional and the situation is not helped when someone insults my Club like that guy did. It doesn't take a genius to work out the connotations - Glen depicted by a picture of  Watty Graham, Silverbridge by a picture of a fictitious alcoholic priest.

I returned home from a wake at 5am this morning to discover the 2 posts about Silverbridge GFC posted by hero member drici.  In these he insinuates that our Club is a pack of drunks, using a couple of photos put up on the Club twitter account earlier this year to demonstrate the volunteer ethos which could transform a pile of pallets and plywood into a functioning bar for a one off event, as a means of substantiating his claim. It was the same volunteer ethos that was evident over the past 2 days and nights when the same volunteers stayed out in the wind and rain to steward at the said wake which was that of the 42 year old son of an esteemed Club member who died on Boxing Day leaving a widow and 5 children, 4 of whom are under 8 years of age.  But we never put photos of that sort of thing on twitter, we just do it as a matter of form.  I cannot understand what would drive a person to post something as spiteful and vindictive in a thread about an under 18 football match.  I would ask him what does he really know about our Club?  What does he know about its members? What does he know about our minor team? And finally what axe has he to grind with us?  It must be something pretty bad to warrant what he did.  If ever the term hero member was inappropriate, this is it

You are one sad pathetic person putting up a post like this about an under 18 football match

Great win for Silverbridge today. Unbeaten in 2013.  They'll give the final a good lash.  I understand final wil be played under current rules so no black cards

Pitch inspection at 11.30 this morning to determine whether today's semi final between Carrickmacross and Silverbridge goes ahead.

Jesus that's awful. It's bad at any time but it is worse in the mouth of Christmas. RIP

I couldn't agree more. I'm also at a loss as to why concerts are such a big deal. If the residents have any sense they should seize the opportunity to make a few quid selling bottles of water bars of chocolate etc from the front of their houses. They could clean up

When did you hear this before and how many times have you heard it at this stage ?

Broken record stuff at this stage :

"We're prepared to work on for as long as it takes to resolve these issues because we recognise how important they are for the people of Northern Ireland."

Sinn Féin's talks negotiator lothario, Gerry Kelly, said "advances" had been made.

"We can make progress, but the political will needs to be there and this is an opportunity which we, certainly in Sinn Féin, and I would say all the parties, need not to lose, is we'll not come back again easily, so we're up for finishing the job for the people in the north, and indeed throughout Ireland and Britain," he said.

Fixed that for you.
You reckon Gerry and Meghan might have got jiggy at all

Technically many of the players are overage on 1 January
