The minister said he wrote a "very balanced letter" to the museum because he wanted to "reflect the views of all the people in Northern Ireland in all its richness and diversity".

Mmmm. Yes. Good man Nelson. Went to Canada once to see a GAA match.

The most interesting part about this for me is that the 4 'UK' associations still have vastly disproportionate power in deciding the laws of the game. NI seemly has more voting power than Germany, Italy or Brazil. Strange.

Could the Kerry and Donegal men not let these magnificent creatures alone?


The poisoned carcasses of two rare white-tailed sea eagles have been discovered in the Waterville area of south west Kerry.

The birds had been reintroduced to Ireland last August from Norway as part of a programme to re-establish a viable breeding population of sea eagles in south-west Ireland.

The deaths follow the poisoning of another white-tailed sea eagle found dead on March 12th near Lough Lein, Killarney.

The fish eagle deaths follow the finding of a golden eagle poisoned by paraquat in Co Donegal on February 19th, 2009.

A red kite found dead near Tiglin, Co Wicklow, on March 16th had also died of alphachloralose poisoning.

The Golden Eagle Trust said last month it intended to lodge an official complaint with the European Commission over the continuing poisoning of birds of prey.

The trust and BirdWatch Ireland called for an urgent review of the laws covering the supply, storage, use and misuse of poisons and the enforcement of these laws and regulations.

Recent changes in legislation by the Department of the Environment prohibited the use of meat baits in the control of birds, but the Department of Agriculture’s Protection of Animals (Amendment) Act 1965 still allowed, in restricted circumstances, the use of poison baits to control foxes.

Anyone been following this case? Seems like pretty mean action by Pat.

Kennys 'have to prove they took possession of land'

By Tim Healy
Thursday April 10 2008

RTE broadcaster Pat Kenny and his wife Kathy will have to give evidence that they deliberately took possession of the land over which they are claiming adverse possession or squatters' rights, the High Court heard yesterday.

This will be crucial to their claim that they are entitled to adverse possession of the land known as Gorse Hill beside their home, The Anchorage, on Harbour Road, Dalkey, Dublin, the court heard.

Retired solicitor Gerard Charlton and his wife Maeve claim they are the rightful owners, said Eoghan Fitzsimons, their counsel.

He was speaking on the second day of the hearing of the dispute between the two families about the ownership of the 0.2 acre plot, said to have a value between €1m and €2m.

The Kennys claim they used it as a "nature reserve" for foxes and badgers, planted on it, pruned trees and put up fencing.

They also claim they have acquired a leasehold interest.

Mr Fitzsimons went through the title deeds of the Charltons' property, Maple Tree House, which they bought in 1971.

The deeds show ownership of Maple Tree House was assigned to the Charltons in November 1971 and this included an area known as Quarryfield, part of which is the Gorse Hill land.

The Charltons bought it from the renowned postcard photographer John Hinde. Mr Hinde also sold, at the same time, an adjoining property, which was later to become the site of Pat Kenny's home.

The Kennys bought The Anchorage in 1988 and built a completely new home, also called the Anchorage, on part of the site in the early 1990s. It was clear from the title deeds, Mr Fitzsimons said, that apart from the assignment of Gorse Hill to the Charltons, the Kennys also had to obtain permission from the Charltons for the right of way into the Anchorage.

The court heard that evidence would also be given that in 2007 Mr Kenny acquired what was described as an "intermediate" interest in the leasehold title to Gorse Hill, although the Charltons will say their interest was and is superior to that, Mr Fitzsimons said.

The Kennys would have to show that between the period of adverse possession they claim (1991-2003) they "intended to take the Charltons' land from them and that they did it deliberately and openly, notwithstanding the close relationship between them", Mr Fitzsimons said.

The evidence will show that the Charltons "were oblivious of any attempt whatsoever" by the Kennys to take possession of the land, Mr Fitzsimons said. The case resumes tomorrow.

New show on FOX Sports in the US on measurement of various sports techniques and forces using the latest technology. Would be interesting to see some Gaelic applications, like the analysis of catching techniques from various great fielders etc.

Seems to a fair contingent of US based contributors here, trying to book a flight home for Christmas at the minute. I always use Orbitz - anyone have any better suggestions?
