The key words in Johnny Bell's statement are 'in many many formats'. Nolan has some of these in a format which can't be questioned.

Excellent post.This is such a pompous position to take, how is the Irish language going to spread if you disparage people trying their best to use it on a daily basis? Politics aside I commend anyone trying to use Irish, I have a smattering of Irish and try to use odd phrases in my daily routine, where appropriate. This type of attitude is off putting.Irish speakers from south of the border do not even understand Sinn Fein when they stand up and speak Irish, a Church of Ireland cleric has said. Rev Alan Irwin from Lack Parish Church in Fermanagh was speaking after Communities Minister Paul Givan performed a U-turn on his decision to cut £50,000 funding to take children on Irish language field trips.“I have cousins who live south of the border who cannot grasp Sinn Fein members when they stand up and speak Irish,” Rev Irwin said. “They are concerned it is being used as a political tool.

I don't speak or read Irish but I have been reliably informed by someone who is fluent and exceptionally well qualified in the language that the Irish delivered by many elected SF people is either just odd phrases or poorly constructed, grammatically poor and weakly delivered.
To me, and you can watch and listen online, G Adams was not convincing that he was fluent in Irish when he spoke at the Felons Club last Saturday. He was much more fluent in English and his delivery of Irish was stuttered.
Good analysis there. 45 is a much more difficult game.45 is the chess of card games while Whist is more like draughts. Do students still not play 7 Card Whist with mates to win a fast few quid? It was the rage for 10 years easily until the mid 90s anyway.
What are the rules of 45? I always thought Whist was fierce complicated. You had to have a good memory for what cards were already played, and there was tons of situations you could only master through experience. The rules themselves aren't that complex but there's a lot of strategy in it.
Very little strategy to Whist as you have to play to suit if you have it in your hand. In 45 you must play trump if it's led but if another suit is led you can cross with trump at any time. 45 is vastly more complex than whist especially when its played in 4 pairs at a table of 8.
Nobody from Ros would want to go to Belfast.Indeed. He buys a poppy from a local poppy seller because he doesn't want to offend her, yet he's happy to continually offend people from the Republc by referring to is the Free State. A complete idiot.
It even makes Athlone (Leinster side and Connacht side in Westmeath) look good
As for Tony and his "Free State" and "Boxing Day"......
How absolutely British/Unionist is that?
it will be also comfort to know that every Ferrari that pulls out of the showroom at Charles Hurst motors will have been stored at a cosy temperature. Courtesy of you know who? Yes, we the tax payer.Not good not good at all. Community groups and charitable organisations is one thing but that's ridiculous
What's the issue with that Church getting it if they met the eligibility criteria and aren't abusing the schemeHebron Free Presbyterian Church in Ballymoney is a beneficiary of RHI. One of the church elders is Mervyn Storey MLA - a DUP minister in the previous Executive.
This whole thing stinks, its a wonder they thought it would be got away with.
