Stockholm is a lovely city, if you get a chance go to the Vasa ship museum, have a dander round Gamla Stan and take a boat trip around some of the islands.

Recently bought a Nissan X-Trail, happy enough with it so far, very comfortable and spacious and has decent fuel economy. I still have my Seat Leon, the wee lad is now 17 and he can have it when he passes his test.

I was born in Lurgan, was raised in Portadown and now live in Derrynoose. Lucky me!

I have lived in and around Strabane, Portstewart, Lurgan and Dungannon in my time and work near Portadown at the minute.  Lurgan is not as bad as its made out to be, got more going for it than Dungannon and Portadown.  Strabane is not as bad either.  I take it posters here haven't been to places like Carrickmore, Newtonstewart, Castlederg, Middletown, Derrynoose, Limavady or Coalisland?

Whatís wrong with Derrynoose? Itís got a shop, a pub, a chapel, a good primary school and the club even has a 3G pitch. And best of all itís 4 miles from Keady!

Lurgan is an awful kip.

Is it now?  Let's see. Home to half a dozen GAA clubs, and sports participation is widespread in other sports with plenty of clubs to choose from. A big swimming pool with a good gym and squash courts. A large and beautiful park overlooked by Brownlow House, itself a work of art. An attractive, large, thriving, bustling main street with all sorts of nice pubs, bars and cafes. On the main Belfast-Dublin railway line so you can commute in comfort to towns and cities along it. You can take the train up to Belfast for a Sunday afternoon hanging around the bars and eating houses around Botanic Ave. Lough Neagh and all manner of natural beauty spots nearby. Lough Neagh discovery centre, Kinnegoe marina, Craigavon Lakes with its great bike / pedestrian paths that let your childer ride in safety. The golf-ski centre, was the only dry ski slope in Ireland for years. Good schools (like St Ronan's) and a great Tech for vocational training. Plenty of work despite the decline of the historic textile industry.

Compared to other places it's not that bad. Try living somewhere like Salford for a couple of years. That'll soon put manners on you.

Lurgan's only an "awful kip" if you spend your life sitting in the house in front of the TV eating crisps and drinking Buckfast. As provincial towns go it's got plenty going for it.

Itís no Portadown though!

With a shot like that Reedís name must surely be on the green jacket.

Strange first half, St Ronanís going in two down but could easily have been 5 or 6 up. Rice College getting the rub of the green and making the most of their chances.
