Gosh

Banty would appear to be  more of a symptom than a cause.
It looks like one of the PIIGS . The bad decisions go back a lot earlier than whenever Rajoy or Banty took over.

Congratulations to Sligo on a well organised performance and well deserved win. Very sweet for Kevin Walsh who deserves great credit for getting them back to their 2010 form after having fallen back so much in 2011.

There are some very average players in that Galway side. They were made look exceptional by Roscommon who apart from playing badly also threw in the towel early on. To be fair to Mulholland he never got a chance to measure where they were championship wise that day in the Hyde and because of that today was set up nicely for Sligo. He is still a fine manager and they will recover be competitive in the qualifiers.
Walsh is a good manager and Sligo are a better team than their 2011 performances showed. It would be great if Sligo could win the Connacht title.

Listened to the game online on holidays. Sounded like a brilliant second half display with the full forward line unmarkable at times. Seems  that egan done a good job to curtail bradshaw going forward. Great to get to the Connacht Final again. Well done to all concerned. We always have a good year display wise when we go to NY.


Was just thinking that. 2002, 2007 and 2012.

Sligo GAA badly, badly needed that result today. Thanks lads.
Best of luck in the final to the Sligo lads.
The Galway resurrection is a multi year job.
I hope we get Meath in the qualifiers though.

If Monaghan win their next 2 matches they'll be Ulster Champions. It's about time they did it again.

This is a good read

The Thai Tims are amazing. All because of a student who was a Celtic fan.
And he was murdered afterwards. What a waste of such a decent person.

The hurling posters - we have Reillers representing Cork and with the Cork persecution complex self esteem
We have Premier emperor representing all that is best about Tipperary modesty
Everyone else would love to win an all-Ireland sometime

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/israel-announces-plan-to-erect-20-000-tents-for-african-migrants-1.435060

Israel’s Defense Ministry announced Thursday that it will erect between 20,000-25,000 tents for African migrants at various detention centers by the end of the year.

According to an official statement, the Defense Ministry and the Israel Defense Forces will build the tent cities in five different detention centers within a matter of months. Once built, the centers will be run by the Israel Prison Service.

Three of those detention centers will be built near the Ketziot prison in the near future, and will be connected to water, electric and sewage infrastructures which the Defense Ministry have been building over the last several weeks.

The objective of the plan, according to the ministry, is to ensure that all African migrants who enter Israel will be directly transferred to a detention center where they will stay for long periods of time, in order to prevent their entry to Israeli cities.


http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-sukkot.htm

Sukkot is a seven-day Jewish festival, which begins on the fifth day following Yom Kippur. It marks the harvest, and commemorates the forty years of exile the Jews had after escaping from Egypt. There are several different names for the holiday. It can be called the Day of Booths, or the Feast of the Tabernacles.
The meaning of a booth is tied to the definition of sukkot. Essentially a sukkah is a temporary structure for housing. These structures are meant to be symbolic of the temporary huts the Israelites lived in while in exile.

Jews are commanded to spend as much time in their sukkahs as possible. They may effectively live in their sukkah during the holiday — meaning eat, sleep and just hang out — or they may only eat their meals there and otherwise live in their homes.

For the good of football, all of Ireland hopes Offaly win this with their attractive traditional football over the pukey handpassing gym monkeys.

Not only that but traditional manly haircuts against the Lilly white salon monkeys
Agreed. The Eucharistic Congress fully supports the cause of the pasty ones in the war against tanned gym toned hand passing narcissism.

I'll get the comments in early. Leinster football is shite. Look at all the handpassing in that match and at several stages there were 12 Kildare players back in their own half. How many Offaly footballers playing (insert date) could complete a successful foot pass? The level of pulling and dragging is much higher than it was in the Munster championship of the 1980s. The Kildare players are gym monkeys and they are nowhere near Kerry.

The Israeli authorities Tuesday forced four Palestinian families to demolish with their own hands their homes in Wadi al-Maleh area in the northern part of the occupied Jordan Valley as a prelude to evacuate the area from its Palestinian residents, according to a local activist.

Aref Daraghme, head of Wadi al-Maleh village council, said the Israeli authorities gave the families, which live in one area of the village, 24 hours to leave their homes and move somewhere else.

However, Israeli army units arrived at the area before the expiry of the warning period and forced the families to demolish their homes with their own hands.

He said the Israeli authorities had previously demolished a large number of Palestinian houses in the same area and prevented residents from working on their land. All of this is done for the benefit of illegal settlements in the Jordan valley, he said.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military Tuesday ordered a large number of Palestinian families to leave their homes in the Jordan Valley for a couple of days as the army prepares to carry out military maneuvers in the area.
