The inability to deliver this project and a meaningful reboot in Gaelic games in Antrim post The Agreement while "make Dublin great again" blows up in everyone's face is a stain on the GAA. I appreciate Croke might not be directly responsible but the fact both have been allowed to meander to this point reflects badly on a generation of CP top brass.

Sad to say I can't see much changing on either any time soon, Saff Gaels have been shafted and deserve a lot better.

No chance SF walk out of Stormont at this rate - DUP tour de force thus far, a century of bigotry flowing from the cess pit. Political equivalent of Celtic doing 50 in a row

I suppose the ref was technically right to send the 2 players off but I don't like to see games decided by decisions like this. It is a physical mans game after all.

Yellow cards would have sufficed and been a sufficient deterrent to others.

There were a raft of red cards in the English premiership over the weekend for head contacts.

Won't take long for the coaches to change how the players are coached how to clear out without going so high.

The reds are a good thing long term

Correct, and it would soon sort out the gobby lads in Gaelic and groundball too, would love to see a ref in the self styled best league in the world hand out 6 reds for verbal abuse, guaranteed the week after there wouldn't be a peep

If you offered the DUP/OO a 3 county Protestant state for a Protestant people complete with minority taigs to trample on they'd take it

Murder is murder. If a civilian dies outside of that then there is never justification.

It doesnít matter if it happened 20 years ago or 200 years ago. Anyone who feels that time will make it ok is a fool

It's not just Ireland where you'll find this curiosity. Go to Mongolia and you'll find Genghas khans head on money, bottles of alcohol etc, yet the man wiped out 10% of the entire human race.

Give GK a break, at least he was carbon neutral, has upwards of 20m descendents running amok in the world today

Brexit means Brexit, I think Unionist leaders obsession with UKexit is where the problem lies, they aren't British, sin ť

Bitcoin about to go past 30k USD.

Bitcoin at 52k. Was 5k about a year ago. Crazy. And completely unsustainable, but when?

Even if you bought in when it went first went past its previous ATH in December you'd still have nearly tripled your money by now.

Do you mean when will it level out, or even crash?

What's your current position on it. It's been quite popular topic on recent podcasts. Listened to a few, David McWilliams, and an episode on the The Stand with Dunphy.  You get conflicting views on it's long term viability.

I'm of the "missed the boat" mindset now regarding investing.

I mean the rate of the growth of it. I think it'll keep appreciating but there'll be many more dips and crashes before it settles down and is a reliable store of value.

Long term hold (5+ years) is how I'm playing it, with sums of money I'm comfortable losing outright, as its a pure gamble at this stage, but looks to be something there in the long term

I'm up 66% in the last 6 weeks

Bitcoin, Ethereum and Crypto.com coin - 2 of the more conventional and an alt

Hard not to feel like missed opportunities the last few years to get ahead of it but no point worrying about that, or chasing it too hard

Its highly volatile and sometimes I catch myself thinking 66% why not 300% ffs! Which is a ridiculous thought process driven by greed.

Borisí f**king burrow Jesus Christ!!

Savage trolling that

The Tories don't need the 6co's any more, they can win elections in England alone due to the SNP stranglehold in Scotland

Also the changing demographic in the 6co is a ball ache for them, the road to de-coupling is well underway, the unionist loyalist ideology on its last legs and smelling of  piss

What kind of a thread is this? Do you people think speed limits are just put there to hassle people? Have you any idea how many people are killed by vehicular violence every year?

Stop speeding and pay the fine, you potential killers!

Jesus Christ!
+1
+1 from me too!
United Irelanders except when it comes to law and order.   It's a case of 'how can I use my 6 county residence to my advantage'.
expect nothing less from the nordies on here  ::)

All going well for you over there in the shires of Roscommon?

Do you ever hear the tripe that Ben Lowry of the Newsletter spouts on Eamonn Dunphy's podcast...

Each and every single time:

- 10 to 15 to 20% of Catholics believe... x ... I can't remember the exact figure...
- only 5 to 10% of Catholics are dissident republican in their view
- it wasn't an apartheid state cos look it wasn't South Africa, its impossible

Then he just meanders through a pile of guff relating to the issue of the day and how, you guessed it, Portrush is as British as Finchley

These f**king morons have lost the ideological battle and are staring down the barrel and they know it

No issue at all sharing a new Ireland with would be Unionists and incorporating a proportionate amount of their views and culture, but they'd need to reflect hard on what got them to this point

Not a bad suggestion from Bertie to have the vote on the 30th of The Agreement there or thereabouts, wouldn't be keen on anything longer than that

Failed my first driving test for speeding

Did a rake of lessons and then on the test I was on new terrain unexpectedly

Came out of an industrial estate on to a dual carriageway, wasn't sure of the speed limit, kept her in the left hand lane around 45/50, were cars flying past me doing 60 in the right hand lane

Instructor fails me for speeding as there was nothing indicating a change in the 30 limit coming off the industrial estate on to the dual carriageway

Passed a few weeks later on the next attempt despite repeatedly not checking for pedestrians when coming out of junctions (according to the instructor)

Safe as houses  :-X

I donít think his means had longevity. They would have had were there a conveyor belt of talent coming through every year(not a dig at Dublin but with training the hard I donít think you can do it with more or less the same group of players year on year)

Maybe not but I don't think McGuiness is a one trick pony either. If he ever does come back to intercounty management I don't think he will be defined by the tactics with Donegal, I'm sure he will have new views and new ideas.

Yeh I reckon he'll find a way to go even more defensive, 16 men behind the ball, get the ref involved some way

Sent one of his own players out to injure an opponent then goes on about duty of care when his own get a bit of treatment, he fully believed his own hype there for a bit, criminal not to start Paddy McBrearty in the AIF v Kerry

I presume this is about Leo McLoone hitting Joe McMahon in 2011?

If so, where's the evidence McLoone (at the time a young lad who was distraught after the game) was sent on to do that by McGuinness?

As for McBrearty, he was doing well off the bench, including in the Ulster final and the semi against the Dubs. Maybe he should have been starting, but young O'Connor was doing well too with his running. Anyway, Paddy wasn't why we lost that final. Paul Geaney reacting quicker to a deflected point attempt, Durkan slipping on a kick-out, each resulting in a goal, was the difference in a very tight, cagey match.

49mins...Leo McLoone comes on as a sub
51mins...McLoone comes in late on Joe McMahon and strikes him on back of head with closed fist
55mins...After lengthy delay McMahon leaves the pitch with concussion
61 mins..McLoone is replaced
