Others have prostituted themselves to a fizzy orange drink company for a sullied Irish pound.

Now you are talking!  ;)

Not to be ...  Didn't really think they'd have the smarts for Killoe this year.

What's the best book on irish history?

For a general overview i'd recommend https://www.amazon.co.uk/History-Ireland-250-Episodes-Fascinating-ebook/dp/B00BQG7W4Y/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3JQN1VY6U8EPI&keywords=irish+history+books&qid=1567587925&s=gateway&sprefix=irish+hist%2Caps%2C179&sr=8-5

It hasnt got the depth you may require on certain aspects but very good to dip in and out of.

I read this too, and it's brilliant - points you to go to do further research on snippets that take your interest.  Recommended.

You can only defy gravity for so long. The future for us is survival rather than glory.

I would make Colmcille favourites - if they can maintain their discipline off the field they should have enough to beat Killoe and I don't see anything on the other side of the draw to challenge them. Certainly if they can maintain the same level of motivation against other teams as they did against us I can't see them being stopped in Longford this year.

I think you're right Laureleye, motivation is the key in Longford every year.

What station was that documentary on?  Heard it being discussed on the radio.

Amazon Prime, I think.

Mullinalaghta 1-13 Colmcille 1-14

I did warn you.

Well, it was good while it lasted.

I'm not sure anyone really knows what happened there ...

Colmcille still represent extraordinarily good value in my opinion

That was then ... this is now.  :o

If Leeds sell him, then they can forget about promotion.   ::)

Kalvin Phillips lads, how would you rate him? Not that I buy into most transfer rumours but this one just doesn't seem to be going away.

I like him - good passing range, technically adept, good attitude, did well as the link man in the 4-1-4-1 Bielsa format which looked to suit him better than the 4-2-3-1s he would have played in before.

Dublin win their 8th in a row Ladies Leinster Title.

Amazing that two golden generations of different genders from the same county are in existence at the same time.

What are the odds?

Longford women need to pull their socks up

They will need to be able to afford socks first.

Brilliant news that Bielsa is staying - I seriously doubted he would. 

Cooper is very error prone, and has been for some time - a bit like Richard Dunne early in his career.  Not sure if Cooper can grow with experience in the way that Dunny did.  In fact, I'd be inclined to think that he has reached his peak and is on the way down, form-wise. 

I agree that Bamford is not the answer to the goalscoring issues.  Roofe is a decent player, if he can stay fit.  Gayle would be a good buy, but I think they need another scoring option also. 

"Devastated, but immune to pain" - would have to agree with that, it should be the club motto.

Brighton have sacked Chris Hughton . . . I hope they suffer the same fate as Ipswich after they sacked McCarthy!!

Disgraceful, but not unexpected.  Brighton are doomed.
