It was put up by men and there were women there as well, he said, making  tea and sandwiches.

I think it perfectly encapsulates the no side’s attitudes that they didn’t even let women build the monstrosity. Landmarks shouldn’t be politicised like this, commonage or not. The law needs to change to prevent this in future.

Do you not think the part about making tea and sandwiches was tongue in cheek. How the fvck would you boil a kettle half way up a mountain?
This is WTF in itself. A man unable to fathom how someone could be making tea without a kettle.
Have you ever had a picnic?

Nasty one for Mick. Only out of hospital today. Plate in. Will be doing well to play again this year. Big loss for club & county.

You’d find few people who would say that a rape victim shouldn’t have access to a morning after pill or abortion. Likewise I’d be in favour of termination for people who carry babies with fatal foetal abnormalities. If the prorposed legislation addressed those issues without allowing for abortion on demand up to 12 weeks then it would enjoy a lot more support.

It already has more than 50% support. You’d swear it was the No side that had a 15-25 point lead in every single poll they way you’re play-acting. Not surprised, though.
FFS, how precious are you?
A majority can still “enjoy a lot more support”.

Hmm, the cynic in me says that you are completely embellishing the figure you divide by.
I’m going to say that you probably divide by 1 and I’m likely to be somewhere near the truth.

I think I agree with that. I don't think it should be changed simply because Cliftonville are involved. As I say though it's not an anthem for them though. It's the anthem of the association whose competition they have entered. I see little difference between this and the playing of the National Anthem at GAA games. Should it not be played if one team requests it not played?

I agree with you David. However I think what Cliftonville should do is to respect the anthem for its entirety. Then when its finished, belt out Amhran na bhFiann or The Celtic Symphony. The IFA have just made a serious misjudgement but they'd nothing else to do, either offend the catholic minority in attendance or offend the larger minority of Prods in attendance? It was a no-brainer for them

Oh God forbid that anyone would-be offended!
Fûcking welcome to each other
You’re busting your hole to be offended on this very topic, to be honest.

Not at all. We just laugh at your kindergarten antics
“We”
Whatever group you claim to represent, I’m glad you’re well entertained.

what baffles me is how come none of the U16 winning team from the year before never made the squad - some fantastic players on that team and certainly deserving of a start.
St. Brigid’s?? Have you read the thread? They had 3 players on the panel. 2 got injured and the other left.
That’s not baffling in the slightest.

GAA Discussion / Re: 'GAA Athletes for a No Vote'
« on: April 30, 2018, 06:46:26 PM »
I see a video of Petie Harte in a Tyrone jersey and other 'GAA athletes' in their team jerseys supporting NO vote. Cynical use of their GAA status. Is also issue of sponsor's name on the jersey. Did they ask their counties-clubs or sponsors for endorsement to wear their kits? Tyrone jersey or not, Harte doesn't represent me as a member of the GAA in Tyrone.
You don’t need permission to wear a jersey. I’d say you’d see loads of Tyrone tops on show at Sinn Fein or dissident rallies. It doesn’t mean Tyrone GAA endorses these organisations or their views.

No, they just weren't selected. Good luck to the lads who were.
??
I’m told there were 3 players from St. Brigid’s “All starters” at one point but 2 of them got injured and the other lad didn’t go back.

I applied online two Mondays ago and it said it would take about three weeks online, cane the Monday after. So handy.

So, Dunboyne should put a Liverpool jersey in their changing room?
Not sure it’ll be equivalent at all.

Makes no odds it's small change but found it odd that I paid €7 into dublin senior game syls v parnells two weeks ago and a tenner then this evening . Perhaps there was a game on before hand is all I can think of .
Same as yourself. I wouldn’t look at that money myself.....c**k

The fathers vulnerability is being used by elements of Christian fundamental groups and advocates as a tool to force their own agenda.

To make sure what's happening to #AlfieEvans never happens here. That's why.

Alfie Evans and his wee lad wouldn't have gotten through the door of a hospital over there unless he'd insurance in place...

Fact
Incorrect. He would have gotten through the door and treated in many states. Getting to stay would be a different matter altogether. There is free healthcare under CHIP in many states - I think 9million kids are currently covered under it. It isn't ideal for people on unemployment but its coverage and they get immediate attention rather than ahving to wait 6 months to see a specialist.

The whole thing is a mess. I couldn't care less about the dad's ramblings or if him and the mother aren't getting on. If that wee boy has a chance then let him fight

I think the key point is though he doesn’t have a chance. The hospital in italy cannot cure him from
What I have read and can simply just provide palliative care. The boy is in a semi vegatative state. He will die. He has significant complications. The courts have read all this and ruled accordingly. The ‘christian’ thing to do is let him die with dignity. The court made a very valid point, this is what is in the best interests of the child not the parents. The counsel for the father made it out that the child’s best interests were not paramount but the parents were. Provide the poor lad with the care that he can have and let him see his time out in comfort
I don't think being able to be "cured" is a requirement to keep someone alive?
