Gerry Kelly walks the Camino, Radio Six Counties/Ulster 12.30pm today if anyone is interested.

Still have a hankering to do it myself at some stage. Will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

Get the bus to Portadown and walk back to Newry along the towpath. It will lift your soul.

I'd say that applies no matter how you leave Portadown.

Very good!

Get the bus to Portadown and walk back to Newry along the towpath. It will lift your soul. The idea of the Canal was first pitched by engineers working for king William as he marched down to the battle of the Boyne in 1689. The Canal was finished circa 1740.

That walk would tell you if you are ready for the Camino. I’d love to do it. Some people stay in hostels while others stay in hotels. The latter seems to be against the spirit of the walk.

I think he threw the question back at you, would you be as quick to judge your own son if he found himself in same position..

I don’t think you answerd though

I asked him.that..think he must have me ignored.  Regularly challenged and can't answer.

What is the point of the hypothetical questions?

Okay, if it was my son in the dock then I would be disappointed, and I would want proper justice to take place and if he went to prison then accept it but he is still my son.

Would I craic jokes about it? No.

Would I object if others craiced jokes about it? No.

Have I answered everyone’s questions?

Can someone explain exactly what I have done wrong?

Is there an age limit for GAA Board membership?

Wonder what 10 or 11 year old children make of all this content.

I’d be more interested in you responding to how you’d react if it was your daughter in the witness box and if you’d be so willing to demean her and make light of the situation.

Listen here Syferus son, you have issues.

Nice attempt to avoid the point. You told us enough about yourself with your silence so it doesn’t matter at this point.

I don't have a daughter.

Hey, my dad died a few years ago, yet I regularly craic jokes about his death and funeral. Am I a very very very bad person in Syferus's book?

If you drive from Belfast to Ards, you will see signs in Ulster Scots as well as English. Snarlene doesn't seem to have an issue with that.

Some great craic on Twitter with people like Jim Allister and people explaining how e.g. Broughshane is an Irish name.

Some strange set ups with Boards of Governors,  in some cases it's like a status symbol that is doled out to those who have pleased the local Clergy. Is there not some sort of pre-requisite?

None at all. All appointments to the Board are at the gift of a number of different parties.  On a 9 person Board, 4 will be appointed by the trustees and in a Catholic school trustees will be Church based; one will be voted on by the teachers; one will be voted on by the parents; and the remaining three by either the Education Authority or in the case of grammar schools the Minister for Education.

Many appointed do not understand the legal responsibilities they have assumed either individually or collectively and for the actions of previous Boards that are reconstituted every four years.  Will the diocese of Dromore continue to take the hits for any other abuse claims coming to the fore as a result of recent developments or will the Board of Governors of the school become the focus of legal action by victims?

I.... I...... I......  no, I'd better not. Let it go Orior.

Indo gives the names of the other three girls in the house that night, one of which I was informed was the IP;
Nope, the name I heard was not in that article.   

The alleged victims name cannot be published and any media outlet that would do so would be heavily fined

What does IP mean?

Are posters not just posting what’s been on the media?

I heard the girls only want back to the house to play Scrabble and they are huge Scrabble fanatics.

You're some twat.

Well MR2 started it.

You said earlier you've daughters? I wonder will you be so quick to infer people are stupid and up for it for having the temerity to dress up for a night out and go to a house party when its your own flesh and blood involved. They'll grow up and wear short skirts and fake tan, they'll get pissed, they'll have sex, maybe even with people they've just met . I wonder if you'll find it all so f**king hilarious then, but I doubt it.

I can find humour in all of the worst situations. It is a gift. Thank you.

Astounded that McAreavey is still on the St. Colman's Board of Governors.

St Colmans are doing everything in their power to put this behind them, and identify any other victims or perpetrators.
They can't do both and it's nor is it the point. Similar to Sean Brady he knew what was going on and is using the same excuse that he told his superiors. I'm sure he's a good man and they were different times etc. but sitting on the BoG is a bit dicey imo.

In my experience, the BoG of many schools are usually hand picked and completely ineffectual.
