Has any insomniac tried listening to Daniel O'Donnell as means of dropping off to sleep?

I don´t know what all this denial is about from the  Night in November. I listened to that game on the radio and the commentators were droned out clearly on at least 3 occasions by belly bursting versions of the Billy Boys. I can't take anybody seriously who denies that. If Billy Bingham was seen and reported waving his hands to someone he knows in the stands while this was happening then it was just a misunderstanding of his intentions.

According to the BBC the Billy Boys is an important piece of Ulster culture so maybe it is not a hate song.

Things certainly look different these days at WP.

The use of the slogan  Ulster says no to the Maze doesn't inspire me at all

The FFA if serious could  offer 10 tickets to 5ive Times etc. and if they live to tell the tale we can all hear how it goes. I am pretty sure that if one fecker shouts no surrender under his breath 5ive Times will out him.

General discussion / Re: Shoot to Kill 1982

Next we will be hearing that General Tom Barry carried out a determined campaign to murder every prod in West Cork.

Shoot to kill means war is declared. AFAIK war was never declared. When STK is used as a tactic by security forces in the absence of such a declaration then it is murder. It is sanctioned murder by the State.
 "Mr Ed Moloney in an article in the Sunday Tribune, 9 June 1991, stated that since the 1982 killings investigated by John Stalker 67 civilians and paramilitaries had been shot dead in 'Shoot-to-kill' operations. Twenty of these were civilians and 47  paramilitaries, of whom only two were loyalists."
(I wonder wtf was the problem with STK against loyalists)
I have no problem with this STK website that Donagh is connected to. State terrorism should be documented.
But also it is my opinion that any Irish Republican who was prepared to kill unarmed UDR scum should also be prepared to be shot anytime anyplace. That is the fate of a soldier.
STK as a tactic and the cover up rebounded with full force against the British Government.
Previously internment did not work, likewise shooting marchers, supergrass trials, the battle against the prisoners.
 A mickey mouse group of republicans that existed in 1969 have now got to the stage where they are now sharing power in NI.

As the Britsh army operation review said, wouldn't it all have been better to bulldoze the Divis and rehouse the people instead of deploying regiments to keep the peasants in line.

I'd say that it's more of a problem at away games.

Rangers should get some advice from the FFA, they seem to know how it's done.

Whatever about the rights and wrongs of starting Dooher, it did not effect Tyrone on the day.
They were by some miracle only 2pts behiind at HT.
After he went off Tyrone played better.
In the second half they had enough fire, enough will and enough good midfield possession to win that game.
IMO Harte got it right after the game by stating the very very obvious, Tyrone missed too many easy chances.

It was a credit to Mulligan's pedigree that he was left on. The 2nd half, goal apart, was a nightmare for him.

Meath deserved it, despite their best effort to keep Tyrone in with a sniff. Should have had it wrapped up by HT.
Based on Tyrone's performance against Monaghan I thought that all they needed was a fit Stephen O'Neill. They had enough fire and midfield possesion to win that game today. That decision to kick for a point with Tyrone's last chance encapsulated a hair pulling day for Tyrone's fans.

All in all, far too many wides to call it a great game.

General discussion / Re: Henke Larsson to play in Drogheda

I hope Drogheda stuff them.

The heat of the moment.
So there were profuse apologies afterwards I suppose.?

Doesn't come close to excusing the spectator abuse

It's a fair enough article.
The GAA is the biggest sporting organization in the land.
Who can doubt that this whole episode and publicity will only be for the better.

I presume I would be safe enough in Frenchpark St (Sráid Dún Gar) once i wore my Ros jersey. :)
That's good to hear.
I had a Gaelic kickabout with some friends on a Sunday morning in some public park near the University in the 80's, nearly started a riot after some nasty natives out for a walk with their bulldogs started to congregate and throw abuse, bottles, even some bulldog shite at us.
Some nice natives (probably the homosexuals) came over to us and told us very nicely that we must be out of our heads because some of the more nasty natives might start to arrive.

Why would you ask that?

Sean O'Neill, I remember one move he made, simple one really, going on a solo run, player comes out, Sean turns his back to the player, hops the ball, then the quick turn and shoot for a point in the one move. Never failed to work in school games.

In the piece about the ref, they showed a bit of the Cork Waterford game and a bit of a flash point between 2 players. The ref who had to follow 10 things happening at once, managed to turn his head to watch the 2 players just as the Cork player took a dive while clutching his head. The ref was spot on and took no notice of these theatrics except to tell the Cork player something to the effect of get up. Well done to the ref.

whatever about the rest of your points - let my try and put this in a context you can understand - see the person at weight watchers who tells you how to do it, they are doing that as they have the experience of going through it.
NI football has done terrific work to get rid of much of the past baggage.
Nice analogy, according to reports :)

Compared to most shit that is around now,
JJ is very easy to listen to, even to one so advanced.
Laid back poppy melodic acoustic folkie with a backing band.
Depends on your taste.
