Few facts , east down club has dominated the SFC in the last decade, east down club wonít ulster intermediate c ship, last year all three c ship trophies last year, so why in heavens name locate everything in south down, the amount of dis respect to east down players is in real, we donít show the same towards south down players , coaches and administrators, quite the opposite , A tricolour and a red and black flag over Ballykinlar will warm the heart of this Gael and fellow Gaelís, you donít want involved f k off and watch Newry City or Warrenpoint Town , after all only take you 10 mins and tickets wonít be hard to come by

Well, bar the important one.... unless Burren teletransported last year?

FFS he missed a penalty, these things happen. People are just waiting for a chance to jump on him. Rashford didnít seem to have any issue with letting him take it from the footage Iíve seen.

It's abit like Trump rabble rousing his so called base, same here, and and we know our opinion on trumps base of supporters.

But what does it say about people who vote SF after their antics?
That there unfortunately is no credible alternative if you want a UI. The SDLP have no one of note or intellect. SF do have saner voices such as O'Dowd, Murphy and Brady. Unfortunately this anti British clown grabs the headlines. Mary Lou is a disappointment as President and Michelle O'Neill is useless.

SF will never deliver a UI and never is a long time. They haven't the ability or skill to persuade those who need persuaded.

I donít think anybody will ever persuade those who need to be persuaded

The people who need to be persuaded are the 20% or so in the middle, hard unionists and loyalists will never vote for it but demographics are changing and Brexit has opened up an economic debate that is only really beginning. I do think for the border poll to happen it would need to be predicated by Scottish independence and an intensive open debate on the costs/benefits of reunification. It would also need to be driven by civic nationalism and the Irish political parties in order to give it the best possible chance of success.

Who else is driving it at the minute? The Tories and British Labour Party?

I would imagine SFs view is to let the clowns self destruct as much as possible hopefully leading to Scottish Independence and a majority in the North wanting to get away from nut job England/Wales.

Whilst 100,000+ lose their jobs on the island of ireland - I voted Sinn Fein in every election since the late 90's bar this year and will never vote for them again, they are letting their people down time and time again, shameful.

I think you have to think what's less painful... a few years of hardship before getting up to speed with the republic, or living the rest of your life under the economic/social abomination that is partition.

So are you happy enough to lose your job, possibly your home have all that stress and turmoil on you and your family's doorstep because elected politicians refuse to take their seats in any elected office but still get paid - genuine question would you take that hit and all that comes with it?

Am I really going to lose my job and home because Francie Molloy doesn't enter the house of commons? Really??

Are you a political - that was some swerve from the question - ill break it down, because a no-deal is a real possibility and because it could pass with a few votes in House Of Commons over 100,000 people on the island of Ireland could lose there jobs - my question again to you.

Are you happy for Sinn Fein to not attempt to stop a no-deal and you lose your job as a result, or are you in a position where a no-deal won't affect your job so you are happy for everyone else to suffer for years to maybe get a United Ireland?

The 100,000 figure is that 100,000 less jobs will be created in the long term due to a hard Brexit, not that 100,000 people will lose their jobs. The short term pain of a hard Brexit will be tough enough but medium to long term, Ireland will be fine.

Great morning for our guys. Hopefully can dig in now.

I get so confused now with this cricket, who are our guys and who are their guys again?  ;) :D :D :D

Well, thereís no Irish lads on the England team... and I think no English players on the Irish team?

For then Armagh match in the Ulster Championship at Pairc Esler there were shuttle buses running from the train station to the ground and also from the Quays/Buttercrane car parks to the match. I'm sure with the crowd expected they will be running something similar.

That's a partnership between Ulster GAA and Ulsterbus, I don't know if it'll be extended to AI series.

I see Newry train station is a handy 50 minute walk from the field. WTF?  - are there shuttle buses into the City Centre?

Thanks to the Brits building train stations on the outside of towns so their troops could organise at the train station without being ambushed in a town centre.

Thereís a shuttle bus to the bus depot. You can walk (10-15 mins) from there or get another bus.

Yes - fortress Newry.

When was the last time we played Mayo? We beat them in Castlebar in the league 2011 I think it was but they stuffed us in Croke Park in 2012 maybe? Did they come to Newry in the league in 2012 also?

Lost in the league in 2016 by a couple of points.

Its grand as it is, the tv coverage and build up to these games are great, if you've been involved with a club that has had the chance to play at Croker on St Patricks day you'll understand then what it does to a club and its future.

For a county like ours to have limited success at county level to having a club represent its county and province in Croke park is some achievment, Loughgiel, Rossa Cushendall and the great Dunloy teams have all graced the pitch on St Patricks day, ourselves and the Johnnies also had that opportunity in football.

The GAA calendar year is packed out, the break to play the semi finals  and finals in Feb and March is of no hinderance to anyone

The provincial finals are played in late november. An example was slaughtneil a couple of years ago had to wait 10 weeks from ulster final to all ireland semi. Then another 4 week gap to the final. That is ridiculous. You say itís of no hindrance to anyone but 7 of those players were lost to derry for their division 3 campaign and it was no surprise that they were relegated. Players donít need huge gaps between games. There is really no issue with having one week gap between games which would mean getting club finals completed in the calendar year.

County teams should not be doing anything other than strength and conditioning work, the same as the lads on the S'niell team would have been doing anyways, was there not a ban on players doing county training and games during December? and a brilliant opportunity for other players to step up in the squad and get selected. leagues are playing in, championships are for winning.

It wasnt as if the lads at S'neil were sitting on their hands to be fair

What about from Janauary to the end of March? Sit in the gym the whole time?
