The Poles are the first to weaken the EU stance, Coveney should box the head off him;

Unionist/British media all over this obviously, it's the first chink in the armour and they'll exploit it for all its worth. Coveney and Barnier need to be explicit that the backstop is not for changing.

Been to Stockholm & really enjoyed it. Only thing was it was the end of June & i felt like Al Pacino in Insomnia (virtually no night time at all). Ended up on a daytrip to Norrkopping for no other reason  than i had seen their team playing Crusaders in the Cup Winners Cup at the Oval in 1968. Also spent a few days in Copenhagen on another trip & you can then get the train across the bridge to Sweden & i ended up in Malmo & took Mrs to Ystad as well, as she's a Wallander fan. Remember going to Lund for a day trip & meeting somebody from Armagh working in a bar! Scandinavia is bit off normal list of people's places to visit, it is bit expensive, but worth visiting. I took SAS flights out of Dublin each time.

I was in Copehnagen in early Dec. Tivoli Gardens was something else. Went over the Bridge to Malmo too..?.check out the bridfe!

Copenhagen was beautiful ...couldnt recommend it enough. Expensive though!

Thinking Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest for a week all in this June. Been to Vienna for a weekend before but she hasnt. Anyone any opinions good or bad on Bratislava and Budapest?

Budapest is incredible. Very western looking city despite being in the heart of eastern Europe. Make sure you go over the bridge to the Buda part and go up to the presidential palace overlooking the Danube.

Bratislava is "ok". Alot more of a hangover from Soviet occupation. Cheap as chips for food and drink though,  but with alot less to see and do than Budapest. People wouldnt be the friendliest either.

Why is he even invited you speak at an event honouring the good Friday agreement?
What does he say? Yes, we were the ones who opposed it throughout and stood outside blowing whistles and shouting no surrender??

Victoria Bar and Hole in the Wall probably the only 2, with honourable mentions to the British Legion & Cricket Club.

I was driving through armagh and saw the limerick football team piled into Victoria bar one night after playing Tyrone up in omagh in a backdoor game a few years back. Gave me a good laugh.

They sung a Cranberries tune rather than Seán South.

Ross I have no idea, Corbyn the tw.t won’t even meet with the May to sort it out. It really is a farce and English people are disgusted with how their politicians are behaving.
Corbyn will meet May if she drops no deal and she refuses to do so

Impossible to know what next week will bring, never mind after Brexit. Don't know how he expects this of her. Hard for him to complain about a lack of cross party work on this when she's inviting him to a meeting and he won't show!

Another gem of a lad!

'He's devastated' - Oxford United release statement after Northern Ireland's Gavin Whyte seen performing sex act in leaked video

https://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer/hes-devastated-oxford-united-release-statement-after-northern-irelands-gavin-whyte-seen-performing-sex-act-in-leaked-video-37712969.html

THis one I don't think is such a big deal. Him and a mate walking along with the lads out in front of their friends. Yes it's stupid but it hasn't hurt anyone and whichever of his mates decided to share this video or take it in the first place is a complete asshole!!!

If somehow, I ever end up in this position and someone whips out a camera phone it's going over the hedge.

Maybe I am missing something but blaming the DUP for a hard  Brexit, as seems likely, is pointless. From day one, it was obvious the way that Nigel and his fellow neanthardals were going to vote. There is nothing to be gained by trying to talk sense to them.
However, there is another intransigent bunch of dittos that could do well to practice what they preach and give Theresa the chance to tell the billyboys to go supposit themselves.
I am talking about the Shinners.
As things stand they have a total of 7 MPs and going by present tallies they could have tipped the balance in the Prime Minister's favour at the last ballot. It's time to forget about 1918 and all that. Matters of principle are all very well and drawing their salaries and all other allowances without earning a single penny is a neat trick if you can get away with it but I'd  think more of 2019 than 1918 right now.if there is a hard Brexit, the Shinners will be equally to blame as Arlene's lot.
Abstention me arse, it's time to get real!

They don't draw any salary from Westminster.

Also, why oh why would they go against abstentionism when they received their biggest ever mandate since partition on the basis that they don't enter the commons?? Its political suicide.
The fact is that northern nationalism has no interest in being represented in the house of commons. The sdlp got wiped out at the last election in favour of abstentionists, with the exception of South belfast.
SF represent nationalism exactly where it matters in this stand off, the Dáil and Brussels.

Interesting article from 2013

Forgot about the failing 4 driving tests in a week, thanks for that! Gave me a good laugh.

Hope he declared the 3 grand for switching on Christmas lights to HMRC.

3 grand for switching on Xmas lights? Don’t believe it !!!

I saw a newspaper clipping from the mid noughties recently and it had a story about a pair of his boots being raffled for charity. I can't remember the exact figure but it was tens of thousands anyway. Such was the madness of the celtic tiger at its peak!

The Trumpbots are deeply afraid of whites becoming a minority in the US.

What is it with you and race?!?!

Why were the majority of Senate Democrats (including Obama and HRC) all for increasing border security in 2006...but are so militarily opposed to the idea in 2018?

What changed?

Can anyone explain how 2 teams from the same group end up playing each other in the semifinal?

Karl mckaigue warmed up with Derry but was on the UUJ panel.
This is the McKenna cup, logic goes out the window.
