Read the question ? Thatís not what he asked . If you wanna act the p***k donít backdoor it , be straight about it ffs..
And ffs yourself, maybe you should go back and read the question yourself!
If you bothered your asss to do so, youíd see it was a rhetorical one- the poster already knew the answer; he just wanted to brag about Tyroneís achievements. And the reply was in the same spirit- it pointed out that Tyrone hadnít won anything that really counted. Taking the wind out of Whistupís sail in a manner of speaking.
A bit of banter between two longtime posters who each knew the otherís form.
Iíd have thought that a dysfunctional baboon with an IQ lower than his asshole wouldnít need anyone to explain that to him.
Then along comes you...
You seem to spend far too much time prowling about this board looking for something to bitch about and using schoolyard language to do so. Maybe you should consider taking up some less stressful pastime to cope with the chip on your shoulder- maybe playing the flute, as opposed to acting it.

Did you not say before that you had two usernames??

I did, but only set up the new one and got rid of the old.  The Aristocrat was the old one, check when the last time that was posted.

Ah lads come on, do we need to go over this again, as i said i am happy for the mods to clarify i am a stand alone individual.

Never heard of this horan feeney story?

Don't worry Greatest, I believe ya! As for the story itself... I had forgotten about it to be honest. It's a bit odd to be bringing it up 7 years on.


Il have a google..
Yup, I know you and the Aristocrat are the same user and I don't believe you have any other names. At least none that you appear to be using on GAA posts.
Dunno what the fuss over your names is about.
There are far bigger trolls than you on this board.

I suspect that he has a touch of the Timmy O'Leary syndrome. Maybe he should lay off the beer/wine/ whiskey or whatever his favourite tipple happens to be, when he goes on Twitter.

How much is this new visit costing the taxpayer? Or can be contra charge the Brits and bill them for having to mind these two cratures?
According to the Indo yesterday, the estimated cost is Ä2 million.

it's a fair ask but not beyond it to think our bucks could spring a performance in salthill
Apart from the Tyrone result, every Galway match has been a one score game either way. This combined with Mayo's propensity for resurrecting themselves out of seemingly unavoidable relegation trouble over the years means I'd say it's well within them to bring a big performance and get a result on the 15th.

Tbh we would need a massive improvement to trouble Galway and that's been honest not beal Bocht . We have been atrocious so far , fluked a draw in Donegal and again very lucky in navan with a late goal against the run of play to sneak it, hammered by Monaghan and we'll beaten by dubs
. So lethargic in yesterday opening half it was soul destroying .

To beat Galway we need cillian back and hopefully fionn mcdinagh too along with James Carr . Mix them up as starters and bench . Eod should start too .

And shur look let's be honest the sight of the maroon and white should always give mayo men a bounce . Ya never. know ,stranger things have happened.
I canít pretend that I fully expect our lads to reef the heron chokers out of it or anything approaching that but Iíll give them a fighting chance to win the game and if they do, I canít see Mickeyís maulers ruining our survival prospects.
Mayoís fight back in the second half on Sunday was most impressive by any standard.
They were pure cat in the first half and were lucky they werenít further behind at the break.
Then, playing into the wind, they produced the mother of comebacks and could/should have snatched a draw.
Peter Keane didnít come looking for a draw and you can be damn sure himself and his team would have been gutted if they didnít get the points. In other words, there was no fluke about Mayoís second half performance;; the lads knew they had to fight for their prospects of survival in the top division and fight they sure did.
Their tails are up now and theyíll fight to the end.  Unpredictability has been a trademark of Mayo sides going back as far as I can remember and this side is no exception. Theyíve survived by their fingernails before in similar situations and Iím banking on them playing first division next year.

Should Horan have made a couple of changes earlier in the game larryin? The subs all seemed to have made an impact when they came on.

He can't keep picking some of those lads that started. Can he?
I think he is caught between the devil and the deep blue sea here. On the one hand, he had a lot of what would be first choice players who are out through injury or at least not match fit. If he starts panicking and throwing some of them on he is risking further injuries to his better players and enforced absences during the championships coming up soon. It's Hobson's choice I'm afraid.
On the other hand, some of the newer players are showing potential and sooner or later, he will have to let a raft of the old guard go. Unless he bloods replacements in, he will be in even more trouble than he is right now.
I thought a few likely lads showed up last year and this year to date has been even more promising. We have always had problems getting youngsters to mature enough to play at championship level but the last few years, and this one especially, there has been quite a few.
Ossian Mullin looks the real deal already and Tommy Conroy, Towey, O'Donoughe and a few others are developing nicely. Throw in Matty Ruane and probably Fionn McDonagh from last year and things are looking good for the future.
Maybe not too good at present but dammit!, Tiocfaidh ar lŠ arŪs very soon. ;D

The WHO has just reported that a confirmed case of the virus in a dog has been found n Hong Kong. The dog tested "weakly positive" after showing flu-like symptoms. Apparently, the mutt's owner has also contacted the virus. This is a potentially serious development as it makes the job on containing the spread of covid-19 even harder than it is now.

Will the Mayo v Kerry game go ahead with the promised storm?
I'd be very surprised if it does. I'm in Sligo at the moment (7 pm) and there has just been a red alert warning for Clare and Galway for 12 hours so Mayo so Mayo can't be far behind. The it The locals here tell me they expect to get the red alert later tonight so Castlebar will get hammered tomorrow morning.
Can't see the pitch being playable.

AFAIK, the ISF was (is?) a registered not-for-profit organisation set up to organise funds for the development of an underage academy. Iím not an expert on New York law but it canít be much different to what we have here.
Fundraising for any event or organisation needs a licence to operate and the stated aims of the fundraising efforts must be clearly stated. IMO, thatís very reasonable as those who donate to a particular cause need to know what their money will be used for.
I organised a weekly raffle for a local pitch & putt club and I had to inform the local garda supt. And give him the details, including the prize money on offer, the number of weekly tickets on sale etc.
No big deal and no problem with going ahead. Iíd imagine Tim OíLeary had to do something similar, albeit on a grander scale.
Thatís why I feel certain that the county board must have been informed that the money was to be used for developing an academy or whatever. This is governance issues that OíLeary keeps referring to. Heíd had to show his supporters and the regulatory authorities that the money raised was being used for the purposes intended.
OíLeary seems to be a bit of a loose cannon and itís hard to know what he actually told the CB  but the board members should have known in advance that donations raised from the public at large must be accounted for.
Maybe Mayo will be better off without him but if things had been different, the money would certainly be welcome.
BTW, I read recently that the meeting scheduled to take place between OíLeary and HQ was called off because Tom Ryan  insisted that the meeting take place at Jonesís Road. OíLeary wanted to have the chat at his offices in Leeson Street  where he could keep in contact with his business on Wall Street. Thatís what I read anyway.
Itís hard to credit that the GAA would pull out of a meeting if what Timmy says is true but then you canít be sure he was telling the truth.

Between Ansbacher accounts for tax avoidance and hidden payments from god knows where, Mahon tribunal, Moriarty tribunal, Beef tribunal and whatever else the integrity of FF and FG are very much dubious to say the least.

At least the legal class got very rich on the back of it all, so every cloud and all that!

but Army Council blah blah blah...

Absolutely no harm in making a mistake, but harping on at this stage about Haughey and Ansbacher accounts is a bit old hat by now. O'Brien and Lowry less so as they're both still in public life.

Then there are those who enriched themselves on the back on the armed 'struggle'...

this was all going on in the 90's, the ceasefire happened in 1994 albeit the Canary Wharf bomb went off after that with the GFA in 1998, but somehow the Army Council is relevant in 2020 yet the goings on in FF and FG during the same time period isn't.

To sum it up Old IRA good, New IRA bad.

Shinners have enough holes in their manifesto without throwing out the same old tired diatribe.

The Old IRA were just as sh*t as the Provos and all the other modern successors. It is impossible for a country to bomb and shoot its way to prosperity. The 26 counties didn't recover from the War of Independence until about 1970.
Unfortunately, that is very true. All of my grandparents were shinners and all backed Dev during the civil war  and every one of them said that not all of the IRA and their supporters were noble freedom fighters, prepared to die for the Cause.
There were plenty who were more me feiners than sinn feiners- to put it mildly. I'm talking about east Mayo but Iíve no reason to think that other places were much different. A few farms changed under mysterious circumstances. Money that was collected for the cause and levies imposed on shopkeepers and on other business people were diverted along the way and some patriots wound up far richer at the end of the Troubles than  they were at the beginning.

I will not be commenting on any reply you make to this but as someone who resides in the North, I for one am just sick of your absolute crap. The fact you meant this and not as a wind up shows you really have no clue about what you be talking about on this matter no matter what spoof you come out with.

Iíd like to think I know where you are coming from and Iím fairly certain that if I lived where you do, Iíd be a bit bullish about f;ying the tricolour and all that goes with it.
However, I live in the Republic and so I see things differently- a wee bit anyway.
Iíd like to see a UI in my lifetime. I canít see this happening, nor in my childrensí time either. I mean the GFA is only 25 years old or thereabouts and the row between Taigs and Prods has gone on since long before the Battle of the Boyne.
However any Nationalist who really wants to see this island undivided knows there is work to be done and that includes being onciliarory to Prods with genuine concerns for their personal safety and their heritage.
Letís say you go to a GAA game; are you going for enjoymentís sake and to support the local side or are you really going to give the two fingers to the Prods who lorded it over you and your parents, grandparents etc. for generations?
Flying the Tricolour and bawling out AmhrŠn na bFhiann may express your cultural identity and your defiance to the billy boys but it wonít improve the chances of a UI anytime soon. If it ever comes to pass that a majority north of the border wants a peaceful transition to a united country, there still remains the need for the electorate in the south to hold a referendum to approve a constitutional change.
Not too many down here would relish the idea of sectarian brawling, leading inevitably to violence and bloodshed. I really donít give a damn if unionists take to Gaelic football or not.
Iím convinced that, given time, some of them will judge the game on its merits and will take to it. Afterall, people of all shades and ethnic backgrounds in many countries are only too happy to play our game so why should it be any different with members of our separated brethren north of the border?
Back when the GAA was founded, there was every reason to use the GAA to promote cultural identity  but I donít  think the same need exists now. Iíd like to see religion, politics and sectarian overtones of any sort kept away from GAA grounds all over the island.

I seldom see a Tricolour at Club grounds.
When the new All Ireland State comes there will be a new flag.
Meanwhile sports organisations in the North should simply fly their Organisations flag.
I have to agree completely.
I think the GAA should concentrate on, well, being the GAA and leave politics of any sort on the sideline.. A short while ago, during the abortion controversy, we had the likes of Mickey Harte and Joe Sheridan trying to use their GAA profiles to highlight their opposition to a change in the law. I think i's fair to say that the reaction to their publicity stunt was overwhelmingly negative.
The overall reaction was that it is unacceptable to bring matters of religious beliefs into sport. In simple terms, using the GAA to promote any religious agenda is unacceptable - the majority of its supporters.
The association has a policy of staying aloof of party politics; I'd go further and say that politics of any sort should have no place in our national games.

Amazing efficiency by mayo county board  almost as though thy had the Statement  pre-prepared

It was surely only a matter of time before it would be needed.
Arra, I dunno. ;D
I mean the Mayo secretary called poor Tim a donkey in an email and some bright spark got the idea to play Shoe the Donkey on the pa system at a game on Mchale and Timmy still forgave the whole sodden lot of them.
Now, he just let slip what the entire CB are probably thinking and the board tells him to frig off. Doesn't seem fair to me.
In all seriousness although, I think the parting of the ways was coming and if it wasn't te Tweet, it would have been something else.
It's a great pity but since neither party is spilling the beans, I can't pass judgement.
