GAA Discussion / Re: Carlow v Tyrone
« on: June 15, 2018, 09:44:14 PM »
Staying down for this one. Having never been to the great town of Carlow can anyone recommend anywhere good for a drink before hand? Or any establishments for the Saturday night?
The Foundry.
the foundry a good spot for Saturday night
The Irishmanís pub maybe before game one of the closer pubs to ground owned by ex Laois selector Declan o loughlin but should have plenty local supporters btw itís good 10/15 min walk out from any pub not much close by ground

Would be more worried about this game and result if there was only one week between it and next round of qualifiers but now there is 2 so hopefully management can get everything thing out of the players and not worry about the result too much , use game as an opportunity to get more game time in Croke Park , tell Ross and Donie to empty the tank in the first 45 mine get all the subs on and get as many lads as possible a Leinster final big game experience .
Take it easy and recover week after game and then use following week to get ready for qualifier game and chance to make super 8 which would be unbelievable achievement .

Dwight clark the man who made the most famous catch in nfl history , had suffered from als for a couple of years a big favorite here in sf Bay Area

A good start against Carlow is vital a team that plays like that probably canít come from behind too good and a good start might knock some of the belief out of them bring them back to reality.

What was the deal with the rainbow coloured numbers on the shirts? Has George or Bungle passed away?
leo said the guys at the gym thought the jerseys looked fab

anyone watching dubs v Armagh  77 all Ireland on eir sport players took some serious hits with very little reaction, no holding onto the ball after a free also a bonus
The defending was bad tho it has to be said  also the penalty the Armagh player scored in the first half was one of the best gaa penalties Iíve ever seen

You know someone is just going to present the opposite argument and they've plenty of ammo in the last century alone.
Perhaps. But I don't think anyone can honestly stand up and say they haven't been a force for good in the world. And I can't stand by and watch while one side presents all their hate fueled arguments.

Fair play to you Iceman for having the time and patience to challenge the onslaught against the RC Church in the wake of the referendum. Given the abominations that some of the clerical hierarchy were responsible for it can be difficult to stand up for this church but the critics should remember that laypersons comprise the vast majority of church membership Ė their criticisms can be deeply offensive to people who have lived their lives as upstanding members of the community.

Maybe the critics would clarify whether their criticisms are aimed at the RC Church in particular or at Christian Churches in general. It is difficult to engage in any debate where there is a scattergun approach by one side.

As a conscientious No voter I have found it deeply uncomfortable since the Referendum result last week. Thereís a certain element of open season on the RC Church in particular Ė this can be found online, in printed & social media and in general conversation.

Anyway Iceman, I would advise that you donít waste time engaging with certain posters such as Sid Waddell. There are certain fellas that are posting here morning, noon and night and will always have the last word. I could be wrong but I would guess that some of them spend a lot of their time pontificating on here whilst they are paid to be working.

An alt-right (far right) flag hanging from the most prominent "No" campaign stand in the country yesterday.

The same flag was flown at the neo-Nazi demonstrations in Charlottesville last August.

Nobody has to try and "portray" "No" campaigners as extremists.

They reveal their true leanings all by themselves.

did u take the picture?  That flag looks photoshopped

Fergie had the ability to get the most out of his best players and rise up the average player the last  3 United managers seem to do the opposite , hard to watch them

Young ? Ashley?

Carlow seem to have a few really fast players that can carry the ball at pace which is vital ,Murphy with the beard in midfield is a great man to carry but a bit wild with finishing. Nice to see them going well and hope they rattle Kildare
