« on: September 07, 2018, 09:30:46 AM »
Anyone watch Underdogs on TG4 last night- there is a catch up on the website.

Thought Paul Galvin came accross real well- I think he imagines himself as a Roy Keane type figure lol.

Anyone know anyone on the panel? Don't see anything listing players online but maybe we can compile it here:

Ronan O'Neill- Derrytresk- Tyrone
Conor McKenna- Eire Og- Antrim
Anthony Durney-Moorefield- Kildare

Serious amount of pot holes on Tyrone roads these days. Lot of them marked out with the yellow box but its been ongoing for months. Worst I have seen them.
I see some councils are saying its due to the bad weather, beast from the east, what cheap ass material are they using.

Free Jason, FU British Milk Council.

GAA Discussion / Why are Dublin so minors
« on: September 19, 2016, 10:48:46 AM »
Not really up to speed with the minor competition but Dublin never seem to reach the latter stages of it. Why? Massive massive pick. Too big? Too many players?
What say you

General discussion / Oasis
« on: September 09, 2016, 10:10:55 AM »

The first trailer for Supersonic has been unveiled, a film which documents the career of “one of rock’s true giants”, Oasis.

The film, which comes out in cinemas on 2 October, was produced by director Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees who made Amy and was directed by Spike Island’s Mat Whitecross.

Thanks to Liam and Noel’s frequent and much valued interviews, there’s little we don’t already know about the brothers’ 20 years together. During the clip, the footage follows their ascent from “lads on a council estate” to the heights of fame via tabloid exposure, 90s hedonism and peaking with their two-day stint at Knebworth Park in 1996.

Although Liam and Noel’s voiceovers were recorded separately, the film has given hope to fans who feel it is the brother’s first attempt at uniting since their acrimonious split in 2009.

Whitecross, the film’s director, did not rule out a possible reunion during an exclusive screening of the film at Festival No 6 on Sunday. Revealing that Coldplay’s Chris Martin had been playing the role of Oasis peacemaker, he added: “Neither of them have discounted the idea of getting back together. It will happen, I’m sure. The idea of never seeing them again for me is impossible.”

It is not yet known whether both brothers will attend the Supersonic premiere, but it’s likely it will take more than encouragement from Martin and a red carpet to unite the two together. As Liam recently tweeted: “Just seen the trailer for oasis film i must say I do come across mighty fine super real unlike some people see you at the premiere LG x”.

Looks good this. October 2nd its out. IN? Discuss Oasis at lenght. Best songs. Tard-abilities.

In my current job six and a half years now, the longest I have spent in any position. Getting a bit unsettled to be honest and would like to see whats out there. Hate the thought of recruitment agencies etc as once they have your details they are a real torture.
I spent a big of time yesterday and set up a LinkedIN profile.
Waiting by the phone now LOL.

Anyone do anything similar- any recommendations of what to connect to on linkedIN?

« on: May 19, 2016, 10:14:50 AM »
Something I have never done on account of not wanting to be murdered.

You don't see as many people thumbing lifts nowadays anyway.

Regale of times where you have picked someone up and what you have learnt.

I'm bored at work this weather.

GAA Discussion / County Players Returning From Professional Sports
« on: April 25, 2016, 10:39:59 AM »
Recent players returning from professional sport have struggled a bit.
What's the story with Tommy Walsh? Will we see much of him over the summer.
Caolan Mooney the same. I don't think he is on the Down panel at all.

General discussion / Serial Podcast- Adnan Syed
« on: April 05, 2016, 04:16:13 PM »
Anyone listen to this podcast or follow this case?
I would recommend it to anyone who likes things like How To Make A Murderer or that OJ Simpson case.

Give it a listen and lets converse here about what we think really went on.


Our incredibly successful 100-word-story competition is back for a sixth year. This is your chance to win £2,000 and see your work published in the magazine—all you have to do is write a brilliant work of fiction in just 100 words!

100-Word-Story Competition rules:

There are three categories—one for adults and two categories for schools: one for children aged 12–18 and one for children under 12.

Your stories should be original, unpublished and exactly 100 words long—not even a single word shorter or longer!

Entries must be in by February 20.

The editorial team will then pick a shortlist of three in each category and post them online on March 6.

You can vote for your favourite, and the one with the most votes will scoop the top prize. Voting will close on March 27 and winning entries will be published in our June issue.

Entry is open only to residents of the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland.


What you could win

In the adult category:

The winner will receive £2,000, and two runners-up will each receive £200.

Submitted a few to this. Have found it really fun creating a story in 100 words. Gets creative juices flowing.  If anyone feels brave enough to post their attempts here. There is an under 12 category and under 18 as well. Would be great for English teachers to get their classes involved.

One of mine below:


I long to be held. Lifted. To be playfully scooped up, hoisted upon his shoulders and dance through the kitchen. To snuggle in beside her as she reads the same story over again, as I mouth the words.  To play them silly games that had no logic or meaning but just because they were fun. I remember fun. Laughter. But it's no longer possible. Not that I deserve it anyway. It's because of me they can no longer smile. I'm the reason they can only look at one another through tear-filled eyes. It's all My fault. Because I couldn't stay.

General discussion / The Toughest Trade
« on: February 17, 2015, 01:27:03 PM »
FORMER Spurs and England midfielder David Bentley had his first taste of Gaelic football training with legendary Armagh club Crossmaglen Rangers last night.

Armagh star Aaron Kernan is travelling to train and play with Sunderland FC on Thursday in a new 'trading places' television documentary linked to the AIB All-Ireland club championship.

Kilkenny hurling star Jackie Tyrell and  Kernan are both doing week-long swaps with professional athletes in America and Britain for the TV3 show called 'The Toughest Trade', which aims to compare the lives of amateur gaelic players with professional athletes.

Tyrell is going to Florida over the next fortnight to train and play with a Major League Baseball team in a direct swap with former MLB catcher Brian Schneider.

Schneider, who has played for the New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals during his professional baseball career, is coming to Kilkenny to play with Tyrell's club James Stephen's and also to do his day-job as a sales rep with Glanbia.

Kernan is swapping roles with Bentley who arrived in Crossmaglen at lunchtime on Monday.

He went straight into a training session and today the former Spurs and Blackburn players is in Belfast, working in Kernan's property and letting business, before returning for another 8pm session with the club.

The former soccer star, once valued at £15m and with such crossing ability that he was compared to David Beckham, will have to be a quick learner as he's going to play in a challenge match against Cross' local rivals Silverbridge on Wednesday night.

Bentley, who lives in Marbella, retired from soccer in 2014 saying he had fallen out of love with the game so it remains to be seen if the rigours of training and playing gaelic football with one of the greatest clubs in modern gaelic will help him rediscover his sporting passion.

Kernan was once watched by Spurs scouts when he played underage soccer in Dundalk's youth academy but he concentrated on Gaelic football from his mid-teens.

The 31-year-old retired from inter-county football last Winter, having amassed seven Ulster and three All-Ireland club titles, as well as an All-Ireland senior medal with the Orchard county.

"The boys were really impressed with how he dealt with a typical pre-season training session on the third pitch last night," Kernan said of Bentley's introduction to the joys of gaelic training.

"I think he came through it well and certainly enjoyed the camaraderie with all the boys, it's caused great excitement around the town.

"I'm thinking with his striking skills that he'll be a corner-forward, I can't see him coming in as corner-back," Kernan quipped.

The programme, called 'The Toughest Trade', will air on TV3 on March 9, ahead of the AIB All-Ireland Club finals on St Patrick's Day.
