World Police and Fire Games 2013
« on: July 30, 2013, 02:09:45 PM »
Has anyone any plans to attend any of the events: http://www.2013wpfg.com/ there hasn't been much publicity about this. I was over at the Ice hockey there now free entry and decent entertainment for my lunch break. There's a few of the events on the Titanic slipway next week that are sure to inspire any budding fireman sam's.

Never mind about the politics or whatever around this event, I hope it passes off well and shows this part of the world off in a positive light for a change.

The Mountain Biking is happening behind my house, I am looking forward to seeing it, I am not into the bikes but have been at a few events as they are here all the time.  Some crazy falls and serious speeds!

I know a few of the boys from the Armagh fire service who are entering into the Cycling road race, handball and playing in the gaa. Bit of a shame there aren't any events in the SW region

You could have a version of the old joke. Why are fireman's falls bigger than policeman's falls........

I think BCB lives among the enemy, rather than in God's own country. Many of us are exiled.

As somebody said, only the World Police and Fire Games would have a closing ceremony like that!

Jaysus, I thought you'd be on the ball and be trumpeting Wardie's gold in the light-heavyweight boxing.

Great achievement for him and, with Denis Bergin getting gold in his class as well, a great week for Loughglynn too. Donal is an All-Ireland winner at boxing do it should come as no surprise he won gold. Very talented all-rounder, he had a trial with a priemer league club in the UK but injuries led to a return to representing Ireland's greatest county in football.

Certainly a good sign that this season's injuries have cleared up.
