Ye're messing?
Why? Where'd you hear that?

Jay$U$ they must know they are really messing up people's plans.
I'd nearly send them a bill from my Irish Rail and Bus Eireann tickets.
Fans deserve compensation in such a situation imo

do you reckon they'd get it?

The best story I read about Micko was from his Laois time (I think). He had the boys running incessant laps, so the captain or one of the boys asked Micko could they not change the training...he proceeded to tell them ''yeah thats fine. Turn around and run the other direction.'' On the other hand, I think he's the most over-rated GAA personality in the history of the sport.

I wouldn’t be a big fan of Micko and I think his mercenary streak in his later years taint him for me, but it’s harsh to call him overrated. His record speaks for itself and keeping that Kerry team motivated and hungry was an achievement itself. His greatest feat may have been coming back for another 3 in a row after sickening losses in 82 😀 and 83.

As a Dub fan that would have been my thoughts on Micko too, wanted the dough and trawled the country looking it, but boy was I wrong. Last night shed a whole new light on him for me, his gra for the game still shines. The fact he took Waterville u14s last year was brilliant.
One thing stood out though was the line where he said he'd no love for Heffo, they never even shook hands?? Still really enjoyed it, one of the best GAA documentaries.

At the time of the Stardust I was living in Coolock at the time, I know some of the families who lost loved ones and who had to bring home people so changed by the fire, both physically and mentally,  that they may as well have been different people altogether. I know everyone is entitled to their opinion but it is a bit sickening to see "grown ups" on here trying to score political points on each other about an incident which is possibly one of the worst the Irish State will ever see, instead of actually debating the incident itself, the causes, the damage, the ramifications since then. I have seen first hand the scars some people were left with, maybe if the clowns on here saw them they might stop acting like children

JFK's Secret Killer on channel 5 a few days ago.

Was a good comedy show.

Apparently it was an accident all along. A secret service guy accidentally shot him from the car behind. Well, that's that sorted then.

yeah saw a bit of that. The SS guy took his safety off his M16 and slipped, his finger hit the trigger and he shot the president in the back of the head in the car in front - as if

b**tard trying to package a gold find  as a good news story  what will the spindoctors think of next

Mongander  if you are part of a Lobby group . please declare your interest

As anyone with half a brain, or even anyone who has access to the internet will tell you, gold mining is one of the most toxic processes in the world.
There are NO examples of clean/environmentally friendly gold mines in the world.
The only thing universally associated with this industry is pollution and destruction.

I would have thought that someone with ties to Mayo, after all the people there have suffered at the hands of Shell, would have understood the threat of mass industrialisation and the theft of natural resources by foreign investors.

I live locally - that is my interest.
I am environmentally aware - that is my interest.
I do not want to see my football club destroyed due to a toxic gold mine less than a kilometre up the road from it - that is my interest.
I want to protect my community and local area - that is my interest.
I want to see my children and grandchildren live and prosper here, without the threat of cyanide, arsenic, or any other poisons hanging over their heads - that is my interest.
I do not want to see Ireland's natural resources being stolen to profit a foreign company or the crown estate - that is my interest.
I believe that Tyrone would be better suited to the promotion of sustainable tourism rather than the proliferation of toxic gold mines or monstrous wind farms - that is my interest.

Is that enough rosnarun, or should I continue?

Fair play Mongander

I can see how this could be potentially very decisive in the area though with some people no doubt due to make a tidy few pound of their land.

and that is exactly what has happened, some people have made an absolute killing, enough to keep them and their families safe for years to come. But at what expense to everyone else

As long as the gold makes it's way across to the Sixtowns I'm all for it . . .

Dalradian are looking to start work up through Sixtowns, Draperstown and right through the Sperrin to near Derry City. This isn't just a Greencastle problem.

This is extremely dangerous stuff, using Cyanide to process the gold they find in Greencastle and Rouskey. If that gets into the water, it'll affect the whole island.

To date, Dalradian's fact has changed in each interview they've done. The number of jobs it will create, the amount of gold there is, what the plans are for Greencastle.

The information they gave their stockholders is very different to what is happening in Greencastle.

No-one is going to benefit from this but the International Shareholders and the British Crown.

Her indoors' family from Greencastle, this has split families and caused rows with people taking opposite sides. I've heard some of the underhand stuff and the stuff some people mightn't find important, but it is to the locals who have been there from the year dot, this will not end well

« on: November 28, 2017, 09:14:00 AM »
I see the oul gay cake is back in the news today as more British taxpayers' money is to be wasted on bringing The Supreme Court to Belfast for a week next April to hear the sacred testimony of those decent Christian folks, The MacArthurs. Jesus will sadly not be in attendance as he's having his 40 days off. But, the Lord is on their side. Keep those pesky gays to their vile nightclubs. Praise be.

A friend of a friend was recently sacked by Ashers, because the owner didn't like his attitude. The person had only worked for Ashers for a couple of months, did his job and never had any complaints.

i know a very good employment solicitor Orior  8) 8)

There is a semblance of a point to Tony’s argument here.. His jokes are shite almost all the time pathetic even but were they said about different people or even by someone other than Tony they’d pass by almost unnoticed.

There a fair bit of playing the man not the ball going on..

I agree.  There's a fair bit of "neck winding in" required here too.  Let's face it, the comment may have failed the first rule of comedy i.e. it wasn't funny, but there's a queue forming here to see who can be the first to be offended and who can be most offended.

Sorry boys but I don't agree with this, I personally have no gripe whatsoever with TF, but I do find that joke crass. As someone who has watched his wife suffer for 5 years with cancer I found that joke in poor taste.

Ah Ffs I didn't mean them in any malicious way.I meant them the way Denis Law intended when he spoke at George Best's funeral,during the service in the presence of the family,when he said and I quote "I am surprised Bestie turned up today!" Like me , he wasn't mocking a death either.

The mock outrage of the usual subjects here is hypocritical.Plenty of celebrity deaths on this Board have been greeted with absolute and genuine  glee,Margaret Thatcher for example.

What planet are you living on? It doesn't matter if you you didn't mean it in a malicious way, it just wasn't funny, it was downright sick.

And for you to then try and use Maggie Thatcher to deflect your ignorance is just as bad.

Don't know if you have ever tried it but an apology or admittance of your stupidity might have been better
