I don’t know if anyone else noticed Tony Keenan going up to young McConville and putting his arm around him and having a quiet word with him after missing his goal chance, could it possibly have been a penalty for a foot block?, a nice touch from a senior player.

How did Tony play at full forward? Assuming that is Jim McConville’s son, he is a pretty good minor.

Cross are just one or two players away from being an Ulster winning team.

Must be a huge crowd of 700 at the Ballymena v Glenavon soccer match.

And one of the 700 is not wearing a poppy. Hang your head in shame Mr Sidebottom, lol.

The Moon.

Seamus O'Hallerin was the first man to open a pub on the moon, but closed it a week later as it had no atmosphere.

Thanks Iceman.

Dear Hardy,

What is the subliminal message with your avatar?

I cannot understand why Sky made the yanks covering the American football wear poppies.

G did we get an influx of sinner bots on this! Alot of people have the blinkers on, sending a man into a populated area to let off a bomb indefensible! So they get everyone out of the shop; you think no-one gona die outside when this goes off! What your excuses for putting a man in a car with a bomb then senting them up to police^army check points to get blown up! Suppose it was a war line makes it alright!

Shinner bot? Most certainly not. I'd be extremely critical of SF. But I was born early 70s and lived through a lot of shit so I'm speaking a lot from experience and I hate when someone sitting in an ivory tower somewhere casting judgement on the death of an ordinary young man from Ardoyne who died and labelling him as a mass murderer or a terrorist without any context whatsoever. I hate it worst when those sat in said ivory towers will commemorate Michael Collins, Cathal Brugha et all but then use the "ah but that was different" card.

Horrible things happened and what you mentioned was horrible and indeed a war crime. Not justifying any atrocity or killing. Merely trying to articulate (onto deaf ears it seems) that these people didn't wake up one day and decide to murder people out of bloodthirst but that they were ordinary people living extraordinary lives during a f**king{ war

It is much too simplistic to go full Ruth Dudley Edwards on the issue, which many have done.

So no. Certainly not a Shinner bot. But not a hypocritic either.
With respect to the use of the term 'war', it strikes me that Republicans want to have it both ways.  If it was a 'war' why do Republicans complain when the security forces "executed" IRA terrorsists on 'active service'.  What's wrong with a 'shoot to kill policy' if there is a war going on?  Also, I'm pretty sure murdering greengrocers etc who supplied police and army bases would not be allowed in the Geneva Convention.

Much as I hate to stoop to whataboutery, the british interned many innocent people, and carried out a shoot to kill policy, but then wouldn't give political status to prisoners.

Do soldiers get accused of murder or manslaughter?

Does the person who launched a drone bomb which hits a hospital in Afghanistan get accused of murder or manslaughter?

The Shankill bombers set out to kill UVF members, but for whatever reason ended up killing civilians. Is that murder or manslaughter?

The IRA had nothing to do with rising up against unionist discrimination. They used the non violent rising of the people as cover for their goal of brits out and to unite Ireland. Indecently, on both they failed.
The IRA murdered a huge amount of innocent Men, Women and Children, they enriched themselves and terrorised their own communities. Unfortunately they weren't alone in this and loyalists got in on the act as well.
Coupled with the stupidity of the NI Unionist government, a sectarian police force and complete lack of understanding of the situation by successive British governments, the whole place turned into a killing zone where lots and lots preventable deaths occurred.

The IRA were a large family. I'd say there was quite a difference between the city and rural base battalions.

We're heading towards a hard border. It's what the DUP always wanted, yet they will claim they didn't.

Could Dodds and company have been that clever?

You're missing the point gallsman. It's important to attach labels to people so that you can decide in advance what to expect of them.

Just in case there are any new people on board - Hardy always says the opposite of what he means.

Jim Allister complains that Europe are attempting to divide and rule the UK.

Yet not so long ago that is exactly what England did on Ireland.

I know two alcoholics very well.

One didn't stop until he was at death's door. It has taken a few years to recover, but it left scars.

The other is still on that downward spiral and won't admit there is a problem. It is tearing their family apart. 

Like any other drug, alcohol can be a positive thing. But it can be hard to realise when it has become an addiction.
