At least it saves me some money but disappointing to see us Nordies excluded from the late late competitions.
Fancied that trip to Lisbon with 10 grand on the hip. Brexit backlash on the LLS?

And we volunteered to pay their licence fee to watch GB and NI television................(excluding UTV cos that's shite). To be honest, I think we are getting the better deal here!

Great show tonight, Rod Stewart singing Grace and emotional re 1916 and even name checking internment , so poignant given the Bloody Sunday fiasco this week.
Though revisionists and apologists try to underestimate the historical significance of 1916 and the anglo-Irish war, this was an extremely proud moment in our history as a nation , it’s ironic that it was  emotionally recognised even by a knighted cockney tonight, fair play Rod.
The parents of the 1916 generation survived the famine, and at that time there was an environment which quite frankly had enough of imperialist bullying. They stood up to an empire and history showed that the British , as always in these circumstances, didn’t play by the rules . That same ( we’ve had enough) mentality engendered the civil rights movement of 50 years ago, and we see now 50 years later that the British still are not playing by the rules, they’ve ignored the GFA, they’re still manipulating and dodging a bullet in Bloody Sunday . Irish history has shown that things happen in cycles I’ve no doubt that Ireland will once again say enough is enough ! Time for the end game , united ireland and finally wave goodbye to Britain’s ignominious involvemrment in this country .

Rod Stewart was fantastic I have to say. Comes across as very down to earth and very sincere. Standing ovation at the end

What's the plan then for the 1 million or so British people in Ulster?

There'll be no change for those who live in the Cavan/Dpnegal/Monaghan part of it anyway.
The 800k in the other 6 Cos. - check the GFA. The entitlement to British, Irish or both citizenships/ pasdports/nationalities remains.
Mind you if the Scots go Independent first....???
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

He still plays football.
