I think we should pull out of Europe after tonights shambles. Disgrace so it is, could even threaten the peace process.

The Ulster Championship proper hasn't even begun and Throne are gone. Summer will arrive in 4 weeks and hopefully Donegal will join them in the qualifiers.

Why not make it 14 aside. Each team plays with 5 defenders and 6 forwards and no one is allowed to mark the free forward. That free forward us not allowed outside the 45 at any time during the game and if he gets the ball no one is allowed to tackle him. That would cure it all!!!

You'd be better off making it eleven a side, thus making the pitch considerably smaller, should appeal to the residents around Casement Park. Only allowing the keeper to handle the ball, introducing some sort of rule to stop moochers, could also keep the Casement residents on side, maybe call it the off side rule. Do away with the anthem and repackage it and sell it to Sky. Everyones a winner.

Former broadcaster and RTÉ TV presenter Derek Davis has died aged 67.

Mr Davis was born in Co Down and began his media career as a news journalist, working with the American network ABC and BBC Northern Ireland before moving to the newsroom in RTÉ.

He later moved into light entertainment and is fondly remembered for his work alongside Thelma Mansfield on the popular afternoon show Live at Three.

He worked on a range of other shows, won two Jacob's awards and was twice presenter of the Rose of Tralee.

His love of the marine came to the fore in the late 1990s when he presented the programme Out of the Blue.

He also worked on several radio shows including A Question of Food, and following his retirement from RTÉ he presented a radio programme on 4FM.

He suffered from health problems in later years and spoke openly about his battle with his weight.

Last year he had gastric surgery, which saw him losing over five stone.

A talented and versatile broadcaster, Mr Davis was a very popular figure with radio and television audiences alike.

He is survived by his wife and three sons.

Did Seamus Darby start that day against kerry or come of the bench, think he made the different in the biggest GAA game of all in 82!

Darby was a sub. Came on in the 62nd minute.

Should have been a free out, blatant push in the back.

On a tar-melting afternoon in June 1993, Brian McEniff’s injury-riven All-Ireland champions trailed by three points to Armagh in the closing quarter.
Duffy was warming up and, sensing that the manager was thinking of experience, he remembers saying: “Look, Brian, that game’s there to be changed. I think I can do something”. McEniff looked at him for a moment; he had known Duffy since the player was about 10 years old. “Right,” he said. “You’re going in.”
He kicked a point with his first possession, then won a free which Tony Boyle converted and, with oxygen all but out, landed a deathless equaliser, an angled left foot shot kicked through a slender gap among converging orange shirts.
“The age of miracles is with us still,” was how Paddy Downey began his account of the day in this paper. Donegal survived: Duffy marked his full debut by helping himself to 1-2 from play, the goal a left-foot bullet conjured from nothing.

From memory did the referee, a certain M. Cranney from Down not have more of a bearing on this game? Donegal were dead and buried that day until the ref decided to take matters into his own hands and effect the result.

BBC NI are pretty confident that Gavin Robinson will take east Belfast from Alliance's Naomi Long and that the SDLP will lose south Belfast. If Gildernew was to lose Fermanagh south Tyrone this would turn out to be a very good day for unionism in the north.

Combination of allegations against McDonnell and Ó Muilleior being very popular will hurt SDLP badly.

What are the allegations against McDonnell?
