And the locals unhappily discovered what happens when you're discovered.

That was later, at that time they didn't know they'd been discovered, savages.

England have won six gold medals on Day One.

This means that, of all the countries which England invaded as part of their empire building project, none of them can run or swim as quick as the english. Hurrah!

They weren't all invaded, some were happily discovered.

Seen that alright. People yap about everyone should get behind mickey and the team but how can they when he is so divisive? If he is so interested in abortion/religion/politics then maybe he should stick to that and leave the football to someone else. No wonder he so keen to hang onto Tyrone job. Gives him a great platform to push his own personal agenda regarding political/religious views. Shameful stuff for a gaa manager to be honest.

If he was in favour of repealing the 8th would it be divisive??

is it really relevant what he thinks about it one way or other? What does Mattie McGleenan think about the abortion debate or Eamonn Fitzmaurice or Jim Galvin.. who cares?

Exactly.

Inter County managers without political views are as rare as Clubs Committees without political views.

Presume this is an April fool.

I know many won't believe this, but I know for a 100% fact that Cian O'Sullivan took just 4 days holidays in September. He worked full days on the Monday-Thursday leading up to the All Ireland (worked very late on Thursday after training, as mid/late September is busy season in his job). Took Friday off and Mon-Wed inclusive the following week, back to work on Thursday.

Good to know. I have heard often that they get special treatment, I'll be only too happy to debunk it from now on.

Todays attendance in @CrokePark was 36,574 #AllianzLeague


Nice little earner for the GAA. Their Golden Goose keeps laying the Golden eggs!

Modest enough crowd for a double bill with Dublin involved.

Many in Dublin can't afford the rent nowadays never mind trips to Croke Park every weekend. North inner City Dublin is becoming impossible for Dubs to live in.

No nationalist should countenance British Rule in Ireland,but the vast majority of nationalists, North and South, exhorted to do so by every one of their political leaders,voted for British Rule in the North in 1998.

To criticise someone for accepting a New Years Award is laughingly hypocritical therefore😂😂😂

I disagree, the GFA was a peer based decision.

The awards are a not.

Q Radio understands that the Pope and the Queen will visit Northern Ireland jointly next summer.

Pope Francis, who's 80, is already scheduled to visit the Republic in 2018 for the World Meeting of Families.

Today we can reveal that not only will the Head of the Catholic church travel north of the border but he will be joined by the supreme governor of the Church of England who turns 92 in April.

It will be a deeply symbolic and powerful moment - The Pope and the Queen appearing side by side before a divided society.
 
Last year the then Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness revealed that the 80 year old Pontiff WOULD cross the border.
 
At the time - the then First Minister, Arlene Foster, said she would meet him.
 
Q Radio sources have revealed that plans for the joint visit are being worked on.
 
The location is being kept under wraps - it may be Armagh or Belfast-  but it certainly will be in Northern Ireland.
 
Meanwhile,
 
The Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Reverend Richard Clarke, says a joint visit by the Pope and the Queen to Northern Ireland would be "remarkable and wonderful".

The head of the Anglican communion in Ireland was responding to a Q Radio news report that plans are being drawn up for such a visit next August.

The Queen of England does not do joint appearances, she has no equal.

Any reason given for the Vaughan transfer?
From the outside it looks like poor form.

There's a lot of Irish people that still think the rest of the world should have paid for the bad behaviour of our banks and the cowboys they indiscriminately lent money to. Britain too had to bail out their banks to the tune of 500 million. The difference is we needed to borrow to bail out our bad boys.

Funny, the money wasn't subject to a national identity until it went to hell.

Dogs in Restaurants.
You can't even walk down the street without getting tangled up dog leashes every 10 yards.
I'm sick of people thinking everyone is a fan of their dog and is understanding of the inconvenience (how ever slight) their dogs cause in public.

I will not be eating in these restaurants.

There continues to be discrimination and abuse of authority/power in 2017 in relation to religion of job candidates by both communities where they give preference to 'their own' ahead of merit, often used an unofficial tie-breaker.  Thanks goodness for the law.

Are you talking about the private sector where the self employed employ from within their community? If so then that a natural state replicated all over the world. I am be willing to accept that.

We are a bigoted society, the first thought by too many of us is whether an individual is a Protestant or Catholic with Catholic good and Protestant bad or vice versa or how often do you hear, he/she is not bad for a Protestant.

Speak for yourself. I never hear that said.

Quote
The laws instituted in the early 70s put a lie to the freedom fighting IRA from early 70s onwards and a lie to the narrative being lured out to younger people that Catholics only had one route to the freedom already available to them and given by UK laws in N.Ireland and new organisations manned equally by Catholics and Protestants.
 

My points earlier regarding security policy in Ireland (plus your next point below) have addressed this.

Quote
The real fight that the IRA had was against the British Army but it became involved in a sectarian conflict against UDA/UVF whose innate hatred of Catholics was used in many instances by the UK government in a proxy war against the IRA.  No different than all of the proxy wars fought by governments of many countries through similar hate driven organisations willing to kill for a cause.

This was by design through British policy. The British Army could not be seen to be fighting a war within their own borders so they controlled the loyalists to provide the excuse of peace makers in a religious conflict. Sadly, they were all too successful and the community began to believe it. I have never and will never believe it was a sectarian conflict.

Just check out the individuals being appointed to the multitude of quangos we still have in N.Ireland despite rules being in place, the Executive Minister has final say in all such appointments. None of these memberships is unpaid, most are at the going rate of 300 per day.  The new discrimination over the last 10 years is a political patronage and the development of special advisers which will be split wide open as the RHI inquiry proceeds and we see how SpAds are recruited and the power they weald as unelected people.

This is the normalization we craved for. That does not excuse it nor does it mean it should not be dealt with through the law, however, it is standard politics.
From the White House to Sligo County Council, this is common practice.
