Interesting there in the British Empire Games.  In his semi final Michael Conlan was stopped in the 2nd round due to a bad cut but because it was caused by a clash of heads and Conlan was ahead on the judges cards at the time, he goes through to the final.  The amateurs have stopped wearing headguards.

Paddy Barnes has said that it's harder to win the National Championships than win a medal at the Empire Games. At least we think that's what he said.

Lol

Just saw Sean Duffy from Keady come in to the ring behind the Loyalist Banner with a tricolour tattooed on his arm!

Duffy and McGlinchey both got their pans knocked in.

all in all though, a slightly better achievement than your post

Tis the vernacular round our way.

GHD - Did a female speaker at last nights rally state they wanted to tear Israel apart with their bare hands? Extremist language, if they did - which will go to great lengths to undo a lot of the great work you undertake.

Bernadette McAliskey spoke last night, and if I remember correctly, that was in relation to what she would do if she lived there and had to endure what the Palestinians have had to endure for decades.

Paddy was vociferous in his criticism of Rory McIlroy when he chose to compete for Ireland in the Olympics next year, yet has no problems himself with competing in these Empire Games under the flag of Northern Ireland

Rory's going to get a surprise when he arrives in Rio next year.

That's not the way it works in Cork. Dropping a guy off the panel who was brought on against Sligo doesn't look good and you'd have to feel there isn't a happy camp down leeside.

The closer the game gets the harder it is to make a case for Cork, too many lads would have to produce a performance far better than they've done for 3 months or more. Considering they'll have to produce that performance against one of the genuine powerhouse teams in the country makes it all the more unlikely. A Cork team won't lack confidence and they're a county capable of producing out of the blue (a trait more associated with their hurlers granted) but it's hard to see it and even if they do it probably won't be enough.

I hope it's a great game and Mayo don't hammer them but do progress.

Theticklemister anything can happen on a nights football BUT i firmly expect us to get past Steelstown with a few points to spare, IF its dry we will win its as simple as that.
Championship matches arent usually one sided as the underdogs will come fired up but as i said before we are a much better team this year then we were under Madden. Madden IMO stunted our progression. UP THE LOUP!!!!!!!!!!

Think you are being a bit harsh on Madden there waag. Got us very close to a county final a few years ago with prob our worst squad since the early 90s and our league form was always good. Went a bit stale last year though and good to see new blood in. Would say the improvement in our team this year comes from personel. Posties kickouts are unreal and the county scene has really brought him on and Terence has brought deadly pace to the middle and wee mick has brought more mobility to our full forward line that was badly lacking. Optimistic about how far we can go this year but think we should be keeping things a bit low key until we beat steelstown at least! Streelstown look shadow of last years team so think we should get by with a few to spare. In the other games

What seems to be coming out is that they were adhering to the Ceasefire (the terms of which I am uncertain of) but decommissioning a tunnel then a fuckload of Palestinians appeared through it and it all kicked off culminating in the Palestinians capturing a soldier!!

Bottom line is Hamas are giving Israel a rod to beat them with and in turn Israel are whacking them with a f**king bulldozer!!

Bottom line is Hamas and other resistance groups are defending their people and Israel are whacking them with bulldozers sponsored and supported by Invest NI and ALL parties to the NI Executive. Eternal shame on them as they cry crocidile tears at protests around the country. They make my blood boil.

This latest round of Genocide has fcuk all to do with rockets, tunnells, Hamas, or anything else. Israel have been slaughtering thousands of Palestinians since 1948. They want the land, and they use every excuse under the sun to carry out this ethnic cleansing and Genocide.

Question for you GHD-based on this comment, do you think Israel has a right to exist

Right now Whitey and they way they are behaving, No.

GHD...seeing Al Quada flags pop up at some of the demonstrations is heartbreaking (specifically London last week).....this is not what Gaza is about.....and it will derail your message very quickly
