General discussion / Re: 💩 DUP C*ntwatch - now off-topic!

Bruton has always been a well-reasoned and articulate commentator. Debate the message he is putting forward rather than attacking the messenger. A grown-up politician when they were never as needed.

Jesus Christ!  :o

It’s embarrassing 😳

Bruton has now apologised for implying that the Constitution required the President to ask the government what events he should go to. In fact, Michael D. give heads up to Foreign Affairs who basically left it up to him.

Why are unionists so upset that someone who they see as the leader of a foreign country not turning up to celebrate the creation of theirs?

For the same reason as a Tyrone man would be disappointed if his Armagh or Derry colleague wasn't in the day after the All Ireland, it removes a chance to rub someone's nose in it.

I can relate to that.

Tyrone fans have a lot in common with the DUP mindset!

Michael D rightfully giving the "celebration" a miss.

He’s went up in my estimation!

However, shoneen Martin will send someone.

On this day, 16 September 1961, the remnants of Hurricane Debbie rearranged Ireland.

Woods were flattened and thousands of acres of crops destroyed. One third of the country’s crop of wheat and oats was ruined and some crops up to ten miles inland were destroyed by sea spray. Ships were torn off their moorings, dozens of small boats sank along the coast and in marinas, and storm surges triggered coastal flooding. The winds also drove the Shannon to flow backwards and rise 4ft.

Twelve people were killed in the Republic, a further six in Northern Ireland and hundreds more were treated in hospital for injuries caused by flying debris and falling trees. In an extraordinarily close escape, a two-year-old girl in Shanmaghery, Co Tyrone, was hurled into the air and found 24 hours later unharmed in a nearby field

I can only find one article on it and it’s about stem cells from aborted babies being in the vaccine...

All the churches seem to advocate the vaccine except for one I can’t find - the free Presbyterian church.

I personally know people from Catholic faith refusing to get vaxxed on the above premise re 'aborted babies'

If this were the reason though, it should not lead to you tweeting about other issues and claiming that vaccines are ineffective.

But also have to be questions asked as there seems to be some religious element to this. These fundamental churches here are preaching against it, which is wrong.

I now know of a number of these types of families that have ended up with several of them going down to it with, because of their beliefs.

what is the basis of such "churches" preaching against vaccines?

Looking at his Twitter profile it would appear so :( Any which way very sad.

You wonder what gets into people, I don't get it at all. The man had 2 children and they will be a high price for his attitudes.

Paul Hamill, former Mayor of Newtownabbey, has died of Covid.

He was previous noted for using the  Cúpla Focail at an Irish language event.

He doesn't look an old man by any means and obviously one capable to doing his job s mayor for all sides. RIP.

The GAA should get 10,000 tickets for this and give them to the referees so that poeple in the actual counties can go to the All Ireland.

So upset about this, and yet still so unable to balance in your head that what a bandwagon supporter contributes to the GAA, is minuscule compared to what a referee contributes to the GAA.

The “Association” aspect of the name seems lost on you.

Perhaps I should not have mentioned referees, for whom I have admiration. Imagine then are part of the rental of the stadium that the GAA has some prime seats for sponsors.
I made a point in general about actual attendence being on the strengths of the GAA and they should exploit that. You may not agree.

Parents of 3rd level students in Limerick paying 390 euro a week for hotel accommodation for their kids. What if you had 3 kids in college at once. Jaysus 1 would be bad. What is our political system / public servants at?

I'm sure things are bad this year but there was always an element of this. When I was a student in Dublin 40 years ago I had to stay in the youth hostel for the first week or two. Now that resulted from a place where the landlady withdrew at the last minute, but there was always a problem matching places to people.
What may be different now is that Belfast, Limerick etc are as bad as Dublin.

Cavan declined quite a bit in that year, but there are 7 Ulster teams in the top half and Antrim have moved off the bottom in Ulster.

If Down made the final, then every ref in Down should be guaranteed a ticket. But that wouldn’t be the case because so many tickets go to non-competing counties.
No chance unless every player, lotto seller, groundsman, coach and committee member etc is guaranteed one as well.

The GAA should give half the tickets to competing counties and these categories of people should be guaranteed.
