Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling

Is Tyrone the only county that does straight knock out in Ulster? Armagh brought it back in this year and there were shocks across senior and intermediate.

Eugene Reavey’s dignity in the face of the most brutal circumstances is admirable. His message of peace and reconciliation is something I don’t think I’d be able to reciprocate had I been in his shoes. Likewise Alan Brecknell.

It’s disappointing that this documentary and the victims involved can’t be discussed without the IRA being thrown in for good measure

Any rough price on a new key for a car in the Republic?  Three buttons for unlock, lock and unlock boot.  Got quoted €165 but wouldn't know if that is good or bad.
I spent £300 on a new key from BMW, but you can apparently buy blank keys and then have them programmed by independents.

Give the fella a chance. He's young, still developing and could be one for the future. Beggars can't be choosers
He is 23 and just finished his first season as a pro in L2. I'm not knocking the lad. But he wasn't able to break the 6 county side after coming through the youth ranks. He is at least 10th in line for the RoI
Is he aye? Tbh once a player shows a bit of form (or lack thereof) they can be thrown into/out of international squads quite easily.

There was a game in the Antrim junior football tonight that was 16-23 to no score. I wonder were any of those personal records beaten.
Mitchels? Are they obliged to enter the JFC or what’s the reasoning behind it?

Off The Ball Interview with Dave MCGreevey the fella that founded East Belfast GAA

Side note why do they call themselves East Belfast GAA and not GAC?

Whole thing a circus. Where have all these players been before now?

Yeah they have some people looking their 15 mins of fame. You have Jerome Quinn following them about like a puppy. Linda Ervine has been everywhere but the crib getting interviewed, have to keep the profile up..........
I think Jerome Quinn is involved with coaching one of their teams but don’t let that get in the way of A bit of good old fashioned begrudgery. As for you FBnS are you just jealous because you couldn’t in your wildest dreams get the same sort of response to a new GAA club in your city?

Aye can’t think why Jerome wants to coach the most high profile team about, not to drive traffic to his sites or give him content for the sites. Jerome is no mug
Aye cos videoing ladies football is where all the dough is these days lol

He’ll probably appeal. I don’t think he can do anything regarding a plea bargain. the guards have their shooter so can’t imagine they’ve any real incentive to offer him anything to try and get the accomplices who they’ll probably nail at some stage regardless

I have long held the view that had unionists recognised two cultures and administered the state fairly then we wouldn't have had the discord of the last 99 years.

I think the ultimate aim of the head honchos of unionism (and London) was a sort of ethnic cleansing, post partition. Treat Catholics so bad that they could no longer put up with things, and piss off over the border. So, basically, we had the discord of the last 99 years because all Catholics didn’t piss off over the border.

Didn’t Thatcher once suggest that they should re-draw the border to place areas like South Armagh in the Republic. That was the mentality.
The thing is, the more staunch Ulster gentlemen still hold these views, they still think that if people don’t aspire to the continuing partition of this country that they should “fúck off back to Ireland”. You have men in their 50s who have barely left Belfast their entire lives, bar maybe to visit Glasgow or Benidorm, who form their views on places like south Armagh based on the likes of the deceased  Willie Fraser.

They think the indigenous culture is not worth preserving, they think the language is little more than a hobby (except of course when being weaponised by “SFIRA”). They think the GAA hall doubles up as a weapons dump for the local IRA brigade.  Even your more moderate  “Unionist” would probably prefer if the Irish language died on its hole, such is the furore any time an ILA is brought up.

Meanwhile, your rates and taxes are paying for the annual clean up across the north after the 11th and 12th, the fire brigade to be on standby incase the houses catch fire, the council workers to come and board up houses to stop the windows from melting, even the contractors on the westlink to cover the gantry to prevent fire damage! You’re paying for the police to do nothing (maybe hold the ladder) while loyalist flags are strategically placed to cause maximum offence, you’re paying for their overtime when they police parades.

100 year of “cultural supremacy” will hopefully mark the beginning of the end.
You did grow up here during the troubles? The amount of bombs that went off in Belfast alone which caused huge damage and clean up, more than your 11th and 12th days currently, the rate hikes would have the same i'd assume
I was addressing the point applesisapples made about Unionists not recognising Irish culture while they ran our wee colony, while they no longer call the shots, the old attitudes remain. I’d also argue the whole point of bombs going off in Belfast was to cause economic havoc.

I tend to say the North or NI. If I’m abroad I’m Irish/from Ireland. None of this “Northern Irish shite”.

I recognise Northern Ireland exists but I don’t recognise its legitimacy so am reluctant to refer to it in name. I don’t judge people that do, just find it cringey when I say it. Don’t think any of that increases my republican credentials.
