Has the election been & gone already, since nobody on this thread has mentioned it for weeks? What was the result?
Well surely its a done deal with this brilliant sell here.

General discussion / Re: Poppy Watch

I donít know exactly what point youíre making to be honest. Are you suggesting that Frank chose to wear one or was forced to wear one? Regardless Iím not sure Iíd want to be drawing any comparisons between Frank, whoís a pretty sound guy, and Roy Keane who I donít actually know but who seems to be a bully and a pretty nasty piece of work

Iíd imagine Frank chose to wear a poppy.
However there are influences in the workplace , in the public eye particularly , that affect that choice. Would Frank be wearing a poppy if he had remained around Newry for his work?
The poppy campaign is a charity for an honourable cause, however it has been hijacked by some.
I donít like the expectation on those in the public eye to wear one, and the abusive treatment of James McClean  over it , is clearly racist, yet not one prominent organisation has called it out, To my knowledge. Itíll be interesting to see the support he gets from his new Stoke manager Michael OíNeill.

Is it?

If WW1 was the war to end all wars, like they said, there would be no veterans left now. Therefore, no need for the charity. Of course, the Brits continue to stick their nose in around the world, so thereís always a war somewhere.

It would be interesting to know the number who marched in protest of the Iraq invasion in 2003, who also buy poppies. Iíd imagine quite a few. So even though theyíre against war, they help look after soldiers who were sent there.
That is not a contradiction.

I didnít say it was. But itís very strange all the same.

To me, the whole poppy push is about the British government neglecting their soldiers (not that I care much for them tbh) and itís the ordinary people who fund the soldiers post-war needs.
Its not strange at all Benny. Its called empathy

Gaoth Dobhair would probably be a better team to win Ulster. Naomh Conaill lost to  Trillick in the qf in 2015. When is the last time a team from Tyrone won the Ulster Club?

Ah jaysus donít open that can of worms again ;D

It was before colour tv

Your the type a bey sweeps up the changing room after a game
What a player, manager, kit man, club chairman, club member? You havent really narrowed it down have you?

GAA Discussion / Re: Munster Club Championships 2019
« on: October 28, 2019, 10:38:02 AM »
With regard to the Kerry Senior Football Championship, Dr. Crokes got a goal late in extra time to force a draw with South Kerry in the semi final.  The replay will be on next Sunday, 3 November in Killarney with result on the day demanded.

East Kerry await the winners in the final, scheduled for 10 November, with the Munster Club semi final on 17 November.

If Dr. Crokes do not win the County Championship, Kerry will be represented by Austin Stacks in Munster.  However, if the Kerry championship is not finished (another draw in the final and no postponement of the Munster game) and Dr. Crokes are still in it, then Dr. Crokes will represent Kerry in Munster.

By the way, Rathmore were relegated to intermediate status for 2020 when they lost to Kilcummin on Saturday.  The relegation final consists of the bottom team of each group in the senior club group stage played in April, unless the team makes it to the county final.

The county league has yet to conclude, but Rathmore will finish top of Division 1.  Intermediate champions Templenoe and junior champions Na Gaeil were both relegated from Division 1 this year.

County league position/division has no bearing on championship status in Kerry, in case anyone hasn't figured that out.
Out of interest would a team like Austin Stacks still be training in the hope of this eventuality?

An extremely brave, informative and much needed post. Fair play to you Emmett and best of luck to yous in the future.

Of course thereís some who use abortion as a means of contraception. 200,000 in uk annually, theyíre not all rape, incest cases. Youíre naive if you think otherwise.
Again
"97.7% of abortions in England & Wales were performed under ground C - the pregnancy has not exceeded its twenty-fourth week and that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman."

The mental health one is a nice card to play.

We know how babies are made, we all know the consequences of the action behind them, 3 months later down the line if something has happened then it's time to face up and deal with consequences of your actions. It's a shame that your life may now be different and it's not just you anymore but that's a direct result of the actions you have taken.

I'd liken it to drink driving, there's a possibility something will go wrong when you sit into that car under the influence but if you do it then it's a decision you can't go back on and you should face the consequences.

There will be many women who have an abortion and will regret it later on in their lives, it will probably lead to mental health issues with them. It's interesting that those in favour of abortion yield out these statistics but only look at them through one lens.

Ultimately the decision to terminate a pregnancy of a perfectly healthy baby, created by your own conscious decisions and actions is the most selfish thing you could ever contemplate doing.

I could think more selfish things you could ever so...

Than terminating the life they created through their own decisions and actions because it might cramp their lifestyle?
There you go again, boiling it down to a fairly simplistic level. Would having abortion because having a baby would cramp their lifestyle be selfish thing to do? Absolutely. Does this happen. Yeah, I would say there is a few cases like that Im sure. However I would imagine that the vast vast majority of cases involve an extremely difficult, complex and agonizing decision for the individuals. Tell me have you ever spoken to someone who has had an abortion? Or someone who wish they had that option available? I have, and it is as far from what you have made it out to above as possible.

Right so your happy to accept the stats and figures when they fit your argument but question them when they don't? Ive stayed well clear of this argument for the most because its dominated by loonies on both sides calling the other murderers and what else. My views would be fairly similar to Tonto and other posters. I myself would view abortion as an absolute last resort if  the risk of a full term pregnancy was that high. However it must be an absolutely horrendous decision for anyone to have to make, and I wouldnt want to judge them for it, or take that choice away for a large section of society. Lets remember that abortion is already available for those who can afford to go to England. Why should people that cant be treated any differently?
