And Derry have won, this season? (Still waiting)

Oh sorry I forgot they're called the Irish News Ulster ALlstars (Oh but only if you've won something)

WTF has winning anything got to do with it. Allstars are about being a consistently good player over the course of a championship season i.e. Muldoon, not being a good player in one match i.e. Dooher.

It's not rocket science chap!

Niall has been involved in a number of different setups throughout the last few years as both the main man and the coach of teams. As the main manager I know he's won a number of underage titles with Ballinderry and maybe 5 years ago he transformed a Moneymore team that struggles in the intermediate cship and put in a massive performance against a pretty decent Glenullin team in the Senior CHampionship.

I think he's also taking the Rock at the minute and has taken them to the JFC final in Tyrone which will be played shortly.

He helped out Screen for a while just before I left and I found him to be a great coach and the thing I like best about him was that he liked to take boys out of their comfort zone and was always challenging them to get them to play to their strengths (you'd be surprised how hard a job this is!).

I think he would be a great man for the Derry job down the line but I think he is still relatively inexperienced at this level. I could actually see him taking Ballinderry within the next few years (when he's older than all the players which he isn't yet). If he gets a measure of success out of them (Ulster Club or All Ireland) then we should have him in. Definitely a man for the future of Derry football!

Patsy O Hagan from Moortown, Co Tyrone is hilarious. Fomer Bard of Armagh. Seen him have a wee talk at a couple of Dinner Dances... Fantastic!

Saw him a couple of weeks at a party my friend was having before he got married. Patsy is a seasoned pro, he seems to know everyone and has a story for everyone whether it be old women or young kids and the amount of 'blue' he gets away with is unbelievable and everyone was lappin' it up. Great craic altogether!

one swallow does not make a summer, he was tripe against fermanagh, monaghan and meath

Hardly fair considering the man was carrying an injury hence the performances apart from Donegal.  But that performance alone should have earned him an All Star.  As FOSB stated, he did Captain his County to an Ulster Title and his Man Of The Match display was against the NFL Champs.  Sure Enda scored a few points against Antrim, he should get the All Star instead!

d**khead! AllStars are judged on a Championship SEASON... Dooher played well in 1 game out of Tyrone's 4... Muldoon played well in 4 out of 6 games. It's not rocket Science!

Would have liked to see Carney get a run out. Surely we could have gotten away with only one of Murphy and Wallace on the subs, I would've liked to have seen Carney get a run out in this kind of game as I think it's one where his physicality would have caused problems. Oh well I guess we won't have the chance to see him at all this World Cup. Disappointing.

Yeah can't see Cassidy getting the Derry job next year.

As for the Loup, they will struggle bigtime when McFlynn and McBride go. They really haven't got the pedigree to replace them and I suppose these things just go in swings and roundabouts. They had that great Minor team that won a couple of Ulsters but once that crop is gone they really won't be able to sustain it. A bit like Lavey as well... it's sad to see this happen I mean are the underage structures in place in these clubs just not good enough or is it just that it's very rare to keep breeding exceptional footballers in such a small area (and in that case how do Ballinderry keep doing it?). Anyway it would seem that Kilrea and Magherafelt are now the up and coming teams in the county with their underage players. How long will they be able to sustain it?

Tony Scullion was a late developer and never played minor football for Derry. He was asked into the U-21 team in his last year. The side went on to win the U-21 1983 Ulster Championship and went on to be runners up to Mayo in the All-Ireland Under-21 Football Championship after a replay.

Scullion was also a keen hurler for both Ballinascreen and Derry. He played in five Derry Senior Hurling Championship finals and was man of the match in the 1989 final, despite never winning a final. He played for the Derry hurling team between 1983 and 1991.

He was part of the Derry side which were runners up to Down in the 1988 All-Ireland B final.

AFAIK his facts are pretty much correct. I just don't like the way he goes about his arguments. Getting that kid in COlumbine to go to K Mart with him was trash journalism. I know he was trying to highlight a point but he didn't need to exploit one of the victims to do it.

As for 'how did Bush get in'. If you take a look at the interviews in Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 you will see the mentality of middle America. Bible bashing gun slinging dumbasses whose heads are up their holes!

I have to say that having watched Bowling for Columbine CHarlton Heston has become one of the people I hate the most in the world... would never have believed someone who seems so polished and articulate usually could be such a stupid arrogant b**tard!

Not too sure about anywhere else but there is a pre school in Draperstown that is totally Irish. Naiscoil na Speirini. I think they are a great idea and I would definitely put my kids through Irish Medium education as I think it helps broaden children's minds. A lot of good work is being done in this field in St. Mary's in Belfast too and I think that you will see a lot more of these schools sprout up around the place!

Pointy shoes are ridiculous, you look like a knob

I use moisturiser on the face from time to time, whenever it gets dry
Got a great stuff for christmas last year, for putting on before shaving foam, exfoliatant, closest nicest shave ever after it, dear but lasts for ages
Them over the shoulder type school bags, like the ones the courier uses only not made of leather, they're defo acceptable as a bag for going anywhere
Croi u need a second football bag for travelling, they're ideal, no matter how u pack them out u can fit them into the over heads, throw the toothpaste and all into the womans bag and no need to be payin the 12 with ryanair
Any form of shaving below the neck unless for sport or an operation is purely for women

Metrosexual alert! One right here!

So are you McDonald or Mortimer M4S?

Holy god talk about your massive over reactions! Save your judgements for the big games lads. As has been proven pver the years we can't cope with being favourites! We won the match with a bonus point. At the end of the day the France and Argentina games need to be treated as knockout games... we need to win both of them to have any chance. We all know that the team have much in reserve for these games so I don't think there's too much to criticise.

I have to laugh at people calling for O'Sullivan's  head at this stage. This past season Ireland have played their best rugby in both the Autumn Internationals and the 6Nations. I don't see how O'Sullivan can be blamed for lack of player concentration in both the French and Italian games. As he said himself in the documentary "When France got the last try to snatch the 6 nations... were we any better or worse a team than we had been 2 hours previous?"

We've lost a couple of crappy warm up games and had one bad performance in the World Cup. Everything about the world cup is geared towards peaking at the right time... I think we will still do it!
