I find it most odd that someone who wants to force everyone to learn, speak and read a secondary language, and exclude anyone who does not follow his narrow doctrine, can describe anyone else as a bigot.

Everybody who does good--Brendan Smyth falls just shy of that standard

There was a discussion earlier in the thread about the appropriateness of using Gary Glitter as an example, I think using Brendan Smyth as an example suffers from the same problem.

Agreed, but I bet Smyth'' confession was heard and he was absolved of his sins before he died. Anyone want to argue that he wasn't?

It should have been like this from the start in the 1920s.

Would you make the teaching of Irish a mandatory part of the curriculum in a United Ireland ?

Yes, of course.

kind of like a revenge penal law ?

I'm not sure how the penal laws were relevant, they aimed to prevent education not enhance it.

But in a society where 2 languages are spoken, leaders of state and public service must speak both. If parts of NI were allowed opt of Irish then they would never reach these positions of leadership, ensuring that unionists would be second class citizens, as if they did not have enough of a chip on their shoulder.

Right, Fuzzman has come off the beer (allegedly), and unlocked the accidentally locked thread on the big game! ;)

Anyway, we Dublin domiciled Tyronies are having something of a free bash in da Capital on the eve of the mighty clash between the Division I table-scraping Dubs and the slightly less table-scraping Tyrone, in the Lansdowne Hotel on Pembroke Road, D4 (don't ya bleedin' know!).

Everyone, regardless of unfortunate county of genesis, is more than welcome, where we can offer:

  • Music of the very highest calibre, sort of, yaay! Great music, actually, from Brendan 'Bacon' Gallagher from Strabane, with very able accomplices from Tipperary, and possibly, even elsewhere!
  • A guest appearance from the one and only Charlie Redmond
  • Carrickmore's Séamus Mc Callan, very placid these days, so we'll have no more of this oul chat about 1995 (even though Paddy Russell declined our very meek, mild and totally submissive invitations to attend)
  • Noel Mc Ginn as MC (yeah, THAT Noel Mc Ginn), who'll be broadcasting live on TeamTalkMag.com
  • Cathal Coyle with his Little Book of Tyrone
  • €4 a feckin' pint!
  • All totally free (apart from the cheap pints)!
  • And quite probably more players from that era

I would say that, in particular, Charlie could do with a bit of oul support from his fellow Dubs, if any of you lot fancy it. Promise, we'll treat you a lot more kindly on the Friday evening than our football compadres will do on the Saturday evening! ;)

Can I show my big smoke ignorance and ask why there would be a NA select and who they would play?

It's just another one of those conspiracies you talk about against the big bad city ;D

Mayo Team:
           O'Malley
 Cunniffe, Keane, Higgins
      Keegan, Caff, Boyle,
         SO'Shea, Kirby,
 McLoughlin, AO'Shea, Forde,
Ronaldson, O'Connor, Doherty

Caff, Kirby and Forde are the interesting picks, Caff in particular.

Would kirby be in the same bracket as the o'ses in terms of speed / mobility? Or a bit better?

Is Forde from Ballycastle?

I'd like to see AOS and coc interchange during the game to keep the derry backs on their toes

Yes at club level. We will have to see at this level. Pat liked to keep opponents guessing with the Mitchels by switching him and Barry Moran between FF and midfield. or both midfield or other positions. He is strong and gets stuck in and can kick a good pass at club level. He had a great game against Bridget's in Roscommon when Barry Moran was sent off.

Kind of hard to play that game when the last thing you posted was a dismissal of Longford.

Tell me what part of my statement was infactual.

I only deal in the facts Syferus . I leave the bullshit to you
