It's a marvelous stroke of genius, the virtual United Ireland strategy to replace the real thing, which is a bit more complicated.
"Let's just empathically deny that NI is an integral part of the United Kingdom.
Never ever allude to the fact that NI is in the UK, Never Never Never,".

To bring it back to Joe, as Joe must be tearing his hair out at the sight of Big Sean taking over his thread.  What would Joe say about the reaction to Big Sean´s off the cuff remark?

We should start a Sean Cavanagh thread. That would really piss him off.

If you do, my personal favourite is claiming to not know the words of Black and Tans or any republican song and him grew up in Coalisland.
What makes you think every nationalist should know the Black and Tans lyrics off by heart?
 I don’t because I had no interest in learning them.

You're not welcome in their Ireland then. All nationalists need to be Celtic supporting, Wolfe tone singing, British hating knuckle dragging neanderthals.

If you lads are sitting here telling me you don't recognise the song, or even the chorus come out you black and tans....or even any chord to any Nationalist/Republican song (which is what Cavanagh claims) In the words of Homeland's Saul Berensen, I believe you.

Nobody else will.
Recognising the tune and knowing the chorus or part of is different to knowing every single line of it.

Integral may be a bit of a stretch...
How about another word which means the same, ‘NI is a constituent part of the UK’?

Torrid times for Big Sean, once outed for not being a man, then accused of that most henious of crimes of being a snitch, now accused of not being a GAA man for starting a statement with  “up here in the UK.......” , presumably accused by some people who for some reason have chosen not to relinquish their British nationality, a nationality earned by dint of NI being a part of the UK.

Will little Joe temporarily bury his Tyrone are chronically cynical hatchet and honourably rise to pen an article in defence of Big Sean? Come on Joe, Ireland and the GAA need your moral compass, your courage and your defence of the downtrodden.

Just catching up with Brollys column last week. He couldn’t help attacking Cavanagh for his UK comment among other things. I’m hardly Cavanaghs biggest fan, but Brolly just sounded like a petty, spiteful child.

I was surprised it took him so long.

It was opportunistic. Like I said, petty...


A few days ago I watched the 1977 semi-final between Dublin and Kerry.

At one point, Ger O’Keefe hit Jimmy Keaveney in the face with a good forearm smash. Jimmy, outraged, dropped the ball and banged him with his fist in the mouth, knocking him down for a split second. The referee came skidding in like Baggy Pants, awarded Jimmy the free and told them both to settle down.

Nowadays, this would provoke righteous outrage and talk of “protecting the children.” Nowadays, if Keaveney’s arm accidentally came near say Sean Cavanagh’s face, he would go down like a shot horse and roll about until the red card was given, then tell the reporters afterwards that he was merely “taking one for a UK team.”

Nowadays? I assume Joe knows Sean retired nearly 3 years ago.
That was never a square ball!!

You can’t help but laugh. It is just so petty.
