The Gweedore v Cross match today was unusual in that its been a very very long time since I had seen a drop kick. And I assume McKenna meant it.

No surrender!”

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/foster-annoyed-at-ni-business-leaders-support-for-brexit-deal-1.3700531?mode=amp

The Democratic Unionist Party and its leader, Arlene Foster, have expressed considerable irritation that Northern Irish business leaders have backed the draft EU-UK Brexit agreement.
Ms Foster has privately warned that business people were in danger of being exploited for political reasons amid the current turmoil over Brexit, it is understood.

Ms Foster privately told chamber members she was unhappy with the attitude taken by business, and that they did not understand the threat the agreement posed to the union of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.On

#NotProudofNI

She would rather talk to pseudo paramilitary groups or the Orange Orde than business people.

Why is it even in the most positive of situations there’s some tïts who think they’re smart enough to do an end-around on logic and play the cardboard cutout contrarian? The usual crap here.

I dare you to say something nice.

Where did Ben Lowry come from...muppet.

Out of Ruth Dudley Edwards i'd say

Dudley Edwards is odious, but even she sees the positive role on the EU in NI. She might find herself like Cruise O'Brien, pandering to the unionists but eventually realising it isn't worth it and telling them to do a deal.

But did the unionists eventually tell Conor Cruise to f off and mind his own business?

There better not be any trouble at this NI v ROI match or I’ll be pissed off.

Or the next Derry v Donegal match.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crom_Cruach

Crom Cruach was a god of pre-Christian Ireland. According to Christian writers, he was propitiated with human sacrifice
According to an Irish dinsenchas ("place-lore") poem in the 12th century Book of Leinster, Crom Cruach's cult image, consisting of a gold figure surrounded by twelve stone figures, stood on Magh Slécht ("the plain of prostration") in County Cavan, and was propitiated with first-born sacrifice in exchange for good yields of milk and grain.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magh_Sl%C3%A9cht

This area has been in constant occupation from pre-4000 BC up to the present day, as is evidenced by the huge number of ancient monuments which still survive. In a small area of 3 square miles (7.8 km2) there are over 80 monuments of different types, with many others bound to be discovered by future archaeological searches. It is the densest grouping of such monuments in County Cavan and possibly in Ireland.[4]



Included are[5]
9 megalithic tombs
7 Ring barrows
3 different stone circles
9 different standing stones
2 stone-rows
5 enclosures
6 crannogs
33 ráths or souterrains
3 Early-Christian church-sites
2 Early-Christian Holy Wells
2 Bullauns
2 Medieval castles.

Are there any football teams named after this geezer, Crom_Cruach?

Douglas Rain — voice of Hal, the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey

Daisy, Daisy give me your heart to do
I'm half crazy, hopeful in love with you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford the carriage
But you look sweet upon the street
On a bicycle built for two

Many of those that served in the two world wars were conscripted and didn't have a choice. I know at 18 I might have been full of bravado....but truth be told I'd have shit myself in all probability if called up. Would all the Irish men on here answer the call....if Ireland went to war......or would they be claiming Britishness?

Remember in 1914-1918, life was generally pretty shit for the proletariat. What exactly had they to live for?

The chance of a regular meal, decent clothes and a bit of foreign travel would be quite appealing for unemployed laborers living in squalid conditions and earning next to nothing. Bottom line is that they were all exploited under the guise of british nationalism.

The poppy continues to celebrate that exploitation.

Heaps of Irish men died in both World Wars. They should be remembered.
The Poppy has almost become a toxic symbol because of Poppy Fascists. I am fairly certain the RBL never wanted that to be the case.

Interesting that you were expected to wear a Poppy as part of the 'British Values' agenda. As a very quick thought if you live in lets say Saudia Arabia are you expected to wear the traditional dress etc? Then we have the Burka debate. Are we tolerant of other peoples views? Even when they bring them to our own doorstep?

The British Legion's stance is that wearing the thing should be personal choice. But it must be more proactive in putting that message out to the uneducated cavemen. So-called nationalists in the media should grow a set also and refuse to wear one on camera (apart from Frank Mitchell, of course, who loves an oul poppy as much as he loves changing his name to make it more acceptable to his unionist employers)

He did that to work as a DJ on a border radio station.

Has anyone access to an OCR scanner? If so, can you drop me a PM?

I need a 28 page PDF document scanned to text.

A PDF document is already scanned, you need an OCR program.
There are many online sites for this kind of  thing e.g. https://www.onlineocr.net/

Good, but it only did the first page.
