General discussion / Primark fire in belfast
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:03:10 PM »
Really sad to see this today. The damage done on the building is horrendous. I don't know what will happen for the poor employees.

Walked past the fire fighters near the odyssey this evening. They seemed to be running the hoses from there all the way up donegal quay to the fire. You had to feel for them looking at them as they must have put in some shift today.

GAA Discussion / Ulster club championships 5 year rule
« on: October 24, 2017, 09:35:05 PM »
Is it correct that in junior and intermediate there is a 5 year rule where you can't play in that championship game? Does this apply to football and hurling? (I had thought cookstown had competed twice within 5 years in the football at intermediate level?)

Seems odd, and not great, that this rule applies only in ulster.

General discussion / Paul Kimmage

I see kimmage has moved onto the gaa and seems to have the dubs as his latest crusade. Anyone listen to him and luke fitzgerald?

The guy at this stage just seems very demonised. His criticism of dubs seems to be cynicism in the closing stages of ai final more than anythiing. ( gaelic football is just a reasonably cynical game and while i would prefer to see dublin beat i don't see them as any more cynical than anyone else).

Has he went as far as to mention drugs?

"You even have someone as despicable as hitler, who didn't sink to using chemical weapons".

You have to wonder where they get these guys. It would be laughable but for the prospect of a russia-us war.

Interesting article on the use of big data modelling for political propaganda in addition to how it can be used to impact on human psyche etc.

A bit nerdy in places mind but very interesting / eye opening.

The world has gone mad.

Why did they offer the odds in the first place??

All seems a bit ludicrous.

Saw this today...

Interesting venture(nothing to do with me!) which deserves some publicity I guess!

(Haven't seen it anywhere else)

General discussion / The KKK
« on: July 01, 2014, 08:40:16 PM »
Surprised not to see a thread on this...

Sinister developments in east belfast with this flag going up. I wonder who's behind it.

Police talked to locals first then removed the flag. I don't really understand why they didn't just drag the flag down and then talk?

It seems certain elements in east belfast are very happy to let "ethnic minorities" know they're not welcome there.

Hurling Discussion / Leinster minor c'ship
« on: June 14, 2011, 12:38:16 PM »
I caught a wee bit of this on TG4 last night - what is the format of it? Is it round-robin to a point and then knock-out?

Wexford looked to have a lot of speed in their team and were murdering Kilkenny for a while but were lucky in the end.

Who's the CHF dublin have? Does he play senior? I thought it was Liam Rushe?

GAA Discussion / All Ireland MFC 2011
« on: May 23, 2011, 08:59:25 PM »
Didn't see a thread for this...

Tipp beat Kerry

Fermanagh beat Derry

Antrim beat Donegal

Year of the underdog so far!

(Incidentally when was the last time Fermanagh won a minor game?)

GAA Discussion / Dual All Ireland club winners
« on: February 20, 2011, 11:59:49 AM »
Alan Kerins could potentially win a hurling All Ireland club this year to go with his football one with Salthill.

Anyone know if anyone out there has both AI club medals? I'd imagine so but can't think of who.
