;)

I suspect the  ;) is about some drivel doing the rounds about his private life. No doubt the Tyronies will use it as a bit of sledging when they inevitably take a drubbing from the Dubs later in the year.

What this drivel? Didn't he get some award last night?
Search his name on Twitter. I'm not going to put that sort of pish on here.

Its hardly a secret, he brought the new lady to the All Stars.

where is the so called ira in all this
Who do you think killed Alan Ryan?


It wasn’t hoods nor dealer nor gangster .  But I’m sure the evening herald told you different

Out with it...

Was the victim a 'lovable rogue'?
A strange question given that I wouldn’t be too sure that many on the Board would have known him personally. From media and other reports about his activities it would appear to be difficult for anyone other than his family to attach the adjective ‘loveable’ to his description.

I know someone who did. Considered more of a messer and pest, always in scrapes. The extent of his criminality shocked them - nobody knew he firebombed a house on his own street for example.

Think the OP refers to the Provisional IRA as opposed to any particular further break off.
I read 'so called' to be dissies

Decrim use, and go after suppliers. More Garda. More resources. Longer sentences.

No!! Cocaine is illegal for a reason.
And is that reason worth the criminality it brings by banning it?

I heard a travelling gang is involved.
Not quite. The incumbent gang contain travellers,but it isn't a traveller gang, if that makes sense

So is this whole thing a hutch kinahan thing spread to Drogheda?

Not really, although if coke is involved the Kinehans are in the background. Seems to be a straight turf war over Drogheda between the incumbent, who was in jail until recently, and a Coolock based player who was forced out of the area,who tried to muscle in.

This 17 year old seems to have been working for both sides and ran out of road. His limbs left in Coolock as a reminder he hasn't gone away and the head to the other gangster as a threat.

This sort of stuff has happened before, but the fact it was a 17 year old is the headline. A 17 year old  proficient in the art of firebombing, but still a kid.

Flanagan has form in terms of trying to troll Shinners

Very true, yet less than a month ago the same Shinners were backing Flanagan's proposed new law on hate speech, which if it ever sees the light of day will forbid us all from questioning or robustly discussing issues like this if there is a "diversity" angle.

The RIC commemoration didn't bother me at all but it would have been wrong to ignore the groundswell of opinion against it.
Bullshit. Its brining a 30 year old law into the digital age.

Bullshit how? We'll still be able to challenge Flanagan, when he tries to flog the diversity horse, without having to worry about the peelers landing on our doors, or we won't?

(The idea that laws go obsolete after 30 years is kinda funny too.)

Bullshit in that the law exists and nobody stopped anyone challenging Flanagan.

What technological advances in terms of communication have happened in the last 30 years do you reckon?

If you say it, write it, print it, say it down the phone, text it or email it, its a criminal offence. Tweet it, Facebook it, use a forum, its not. Thats all this legislation will change.

If you really believe they are changing the law to criminalise criticism of the government I have some magic beans for sale.

Your last 2 lines sums it up precisely Main St.

As Pat Vaughan of Castlerea put it
"I had my house burned,one brother killed and another beaten so badly that he suffered all through his life.
But it was worth it.....we put our flag a flying"

And yet we have to move on from the two Gardai murdered from Castlerea in 1980 by a republican group (saor Eire) raising for the cause? While it took longer, the killers were still released under GFA.

When and where is the state commemoration of Saor Eire?

Major OG by the Shirts.
This could be the straw that breaks the back of this Government.
A bit ironic considering the Housing and Health shambles.

It would  be a bit shameful if people were willing to put up with 120000 people on trolleys each year and needed this to ge rid of Harris, Varadkar et al.

Yes and no. Trollies has been years happening and people, rightfully or not, have moved on from blaming the minister.

What happened here was a bad idea spun offensively. Flanagan insulted the entire electorate using a patronising tone and now looks even gobshitier by backing out. None of us plebs understood it.

People don't like being insulted

It's hard to take the Morelos racist abuse issue seriously. I wouldn't for a second doubt that there's a racism problem in Scotland and no doubt that plenty of Celtic fans are racist, but Morelos gets abuse mainly because he's a hateful wee f**ker who is a total sc**bag on a football field.
Who you would no doubt like if he played for Celtic.
Quite possibly. I'm sure Rangers fans would try & equate Scott Brown's behaviour and his. It's not a race issue and was deflection tactics / clickbait by the author.
Armstrong is likely to lose a testicle. What has Brown done in that space?

The FAI don't actually own any stake in the aviva, they have a share in the company which has a 60 year lease on it after which it returns to sole ownership by the IRFU. What a basket case
So like anyone who owns an apartment?

Hmmmm, are you saying it sounds like a good deal John?
  Nobody is suggesting that it didn't make sense for the FAI to take equity in LR as opposed to a tenancy. The issue was Delaney trying to pay back the mortgage inside 12 years which led to ruination.
