McShane absolutely growing in confidence - even barking orders at PH and MD when pressing the keeper on kickouts.

If the shooting boots keep coming in, he will be a serious player.

Granted - super game. Credit where itís due!

Doesnít negate the argument for some free taking consistency when every point matters and that maybe thatís not his forte.

McShane taking frees - why? He took one against Monaghan as well.

Every score matters playing the Dubs FFS.

Grounded in USA also

Delighted about this. Was due to hop on one on Monday morning with colleagues from work and my suggestions that we drive were falling on deaf ears. We will be in the 737 800 instead.

Mods - any chance of making this thread in anyway inhabitable?

Both the low brow ass clowns above need some time in the sanitarium.

Items on the list can come and go but as well as the Sausages and Bacon, the following are mandatory - at least in Mammy's house

Sausage x 2
Thick Bacon x 2
Fried Potato Bread x 2 halves diagonally cut
Fried Soda far x 1 half - again diagonally cut
Eggs, scrambled hard.
HP sauce


Doesn't sound great. Basically a load of bread with some rubbery eggs and an auld sausage thrown on the plate.
You  Nordies really  haven't a clue about a proper fry up.

Washed down with some Bulmer's in the morning, or stout in the afternoon and you'd be happy enough.

Honorable mentions for the following additions if required
Good sauteed mushrooms
Beans (popular in British breakfasts stateside, which sometimes is as close as an Irish exile can get)
Black and White pudding

First Concert - Prodigy Kings Hall Dec 6 1996.

Music for the Jilted Generation indeed. Some act in their pomp.

Walls are immoral
Infanticide is moral

Democrats in a nutshell.

Unfortunately for you, only the dumbest folks actually think that either topic can exist in a nutshell.

This thread is not really worth bothering with anymore. Itís a shame.

I've been somewhat waiting for you to arrive at this conclusion and surprised it took you this long. It is a shame, particularly as you have kept a very balanced and respectful view point.

It's absolute shite, and you'd be as well scrolling the social media accounts of the furthest left and furthest right folks you can find.

Yeah it's certainly a lot easier to watch if you have men inside that can win the ball and bring others into play like the ball into Mattie that he turned back out, laid it off to Sludden for a nice finish from the angle.
We've got two winnable games at home v Cavan and Galway and then hopefully we dont need anything from our trip to Croker on Paddy's eve though Cavan will take heart with their good win over the Rossies and Galway are always hard to break down.

Has the squad been trimmed back then? Who has gone?
What do people think of Ben O'Donnell then? Another big strong lad that can play anywhere from 5 to 12?

Is Collie C gonna sit out the whole league? Is he injured or being rested?

Thought he was very solid on Saturday. Little raw with his decision making when through on goal - but very solid and strong coming out with the ball.

The thing is - we could field 15 of that type of player.

Little more fuel for all the Rory Haters...

Signing autographs after his round yesterday and a young golf fan decked in head to toe gear to look like Rory was crying. Rory asked what was wrong and the adult minder said he was crying because Rory hadn't won. He told him that it was ok - it was still a really good week to come second. Took the kid and his buddy (dressed like Rickie Fowler :-)) inside the ropes, to the locker room - and signed a pair of shoes and some gloves for them.

He's doing it right.

Yeah it's been known for at least a month he's not playing the Irish Open this year . . . he basically brought the tournament back from the dead he doesn't owe it anything!

I would have thought he owes it to the GUI and the Island of Ireland though and any fans he has left.

https://www.independent.ie/sport/golf/roy-curtis-rory-mcilroys-irish-open-snub-an-insult-to-national-intelligence-and-paul-mcginley-37838811.html

After this decision I hope he never wins another tournament.

No, what does he owe anyone? The GUI and Island of Ireland has benefited plenty from McIlroy, so I'd like to know what you think he continues to owe them above his professional efforts in his field. Do you collect your paychecks or go into your annual reviews with the Island of Ireland as your primary stakeholder?

Some clowns in Irish sports on the fanbase side of things.

BTW guddies (not gutties!) to me were always the rubber soled black shoes, were as the sports shoe was always runners

Omagh townies would call the actual runners guddies.

Also a townie is not necessarily a derogatory term and defo not necessarily a lower class person, it could apply to the golfers types also. Basically someone who wasnt into farming or cars, was a bit showy and soft on the football field and called it "Gaelic".
The lower class types would be "skiprats" or "townie scumbags"

.... and alot of Omagh wans would call their Granny "Nan" thats got to be a garrison hangover that one

Definitely gutties - just your spelling was a bit too phonetical.

Townies is a derogatory term in Omagh when used by those living in the surrounding countryside or by core non-Omagh GAA types or the culchies.  It indicated people who were a seen to not have the backbone and core that the culchies had themselves. It's the derision often directed at Omagh ones who played soccer and football or didn't glorify a culchie lifestyle.  Used in school by culchie GAA teachers in directing insult to those who lived in the town or played for the town GAA teams when finding ways not to pick them for school teams. Look for how long it took for Omagh players to breakthrough onto underage and then senior football teams.  Same happened in Dungannon. 

Never heard the term Skiprat ever used in Omagh to describe anyone and rarely heard or hear Nan being used for Granny except with women who think they are too young to be grannies.

Correct on the gutties, and on the townies. One of the stranger things in my youth was being called a Townie by all and sundry in school football and club underage football - only to take the bus to a challenge game for St Enda's against O'Donovan Rossa and proceed to get lambasted as a crowd of sheep shaggin culchies for the duration.
