General discussion / Irelandís Favourite Folk Song - RTE One
« on: May 21, 2019, 11:39:48 AM »
Narrowed down to these 10.

I thought maybe The Irish Rover, Fields Of Athenry, Only Our Rivers Run Free, Roddy McCorley, Whisky In The Jar and a few others might have been there.

And what about Joxer Goes To Stuttgart?

Feel free to add your favourite if itís not there.

General discussion / Kerbsy, Kerby or Cribby?
« on: March 28, 2019, 06:38:11 PM »



Just seen this on the news. Never heard it called Cribby. It was always Kerbsy around our way.

What do you call it?

Also, what were the rules round your place? We had a rule if you hit both kerbs, you won the game.

General discussion / What have you never done or seen in your life?
« on: December 31, 2018, 05:24:31 PM »
Heard this discussed recently about seemingly everyday things that some people have never done or seen, eg. never been on a plane, never been to the cinema, never owned a TV etc.

It would be interesting to hear others.

So, tomorrow it will be 25 years since that night.

I canít remember much about the match except the two goals, but I do remember the hostile atmosphere. The relief when McLoughlin hit the equaliser, then afterwards the seemingly long wait to see if Spain could hang on v Denmark.

What are your memories of that night?

General discussion / Premier League players no longer with us
« on: April 05, 2018, 08:53:39 PM »
A bit of a morbid one, but since hearing of Ray Wilkins passing away, there must be actually quite a few players who have played in the Premier League since it started in 1992, who are no longer with us. Can only think of a few off the top of my head, but surely there's a lot more:

Ray Wilkins
Liam Miller
Gary Speed
Dalian Atkinson
Les Sealey
Ugo Ehiogu
David Rocastle

General discussion / iPhone / Data question
« on: March 30, 2018, 05:56:43 PM »
I have an iphone, but don't use it as my everyday phone. Thinking of cancelling the home broadband, and buy a monthly data bundle, and use the iphone like you would a tablet.

Is there a phone company who sell data bundles only? Or can you only buy monthly bundles that include calls/texts/data?

GAA Discussion / Pop-up Gaeltacht @ Monaghan v Donegal
« on: March 18, 2018, 12:01:21 AM »
Irish speaking area behind Gerry Arthurs stand tomorrow, before and after the match.

There will be announcements in Irish, and more Irish visible around the ground. Traditional music, tea, coffee and freebies given out.

Sounds like a good idea.

Hope the tent isn't blown away!

GAA Discussion / Why hasn't Cluxton replied?
« on: March 13, 2018, 12:18:03 AM »
Just been reading an article in Irish News about GAA historian Michael Anderson, who wrote to all All Ireland winning captains asking for an autograph for a collection.

All captains gladly responded... except Stephen Cluxton. That's the only 4 years missing.

Would make a nice museum collection.

What's going on here then?

General discussion / Luas network
« on: December 21, 2017, 01:43:19 PM »
So what's the deal with the new Luas cross city?

And more importantly, how close will the new line take you to Croke Park?

General discussion / Ireland's Greatest Sporting Moment RTE 2
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:57:28 PM »
Focusing on the 1980s tonight.

Top 5 are;

- Barry McGuigan
- Eamon Coghlan
- Ray Houghtons Euro 88 goal
- Stephen Roche Tour win
- seamus Darby AI winning goal 82

No mention of Dennis Taylor's world championship win in 1985. Surely that's Ireland's greatest sporting moment of the 1980s?
