There is lot of bollix in this thread.
There is difference between ban all activities with any risk and for one day in 50 years let's not do things that might put the rescue services under pressure.

It's just a microcosm of every other thread on this site and of internet "discussions" in general. AZOffaly's post (#248) is all that needs to be said about this subject by anyone who is reasonable and thoughtful.


Not too many like that.
It's good of you to anoint yourselves as the reasonable and thoughtful ones.


Did we?
Well yeah Seanie. In saying there's not too many reasonable and thoughtful people here, you're assuming yourself and those who share your opinion to be that small contingent.Hardy did it too, but maybe it's a good thing that the reasonable and thoughtful posters have enough self awareness to know they are are always right and not be distracted by alternative opinions.


Oh right. You see that was my opinion. I didn't realised it carried the weight of anointment.....I'll have to be careful with those powers.

I do think that if there was a Nuremberg type-trial on the Modern Ills of Gaelic Football then in the dock would certainly be Mickey Harte and Jim McGuinness.

However, before we hang and draw them, may I remind ye some of the football played in the 70s and 80s from my memory was God awful.

Catch, fumble, pick off the ground, root it as far as you can, hit your opponent a belt.....

The difference is fitness and perepation is on an entirely different level at IC now. If these teams wanted to play football it would be far better as a spectacle than the 70s.

thats what the auld lads miss . every ball was a contest and best man won the ball. it was not so much about skill as brawn and pure determination.
i think a lot of the current issue are ariding out of soccer counties like donegal where posssesion is king . you can see the same thing in rugby where iits almost an offence to turn over the ball.
6 new rules this year to stop it happening

It's all about skill now.

I didn't know it was, but if so you're no longer alone.

Warren Gatland has not "quit" as coach of the British Lions.

The British Lions appoint a coach in advance of each tour, and once all official duties in relation to that tour have concluded, they are no longer the coach of the British Lions.

Warren Gatland has not been the coach of the British Lions since all official duties in relation to the 2017 tour concluded in July.

There has been no coach of the British Lions since then, and there will not be until the announcement of the coach for the 2021 tour of South Africa is made, most likely in 2020.

Weird tact to take. He quit.

What?

As we don't do hate and bigotry very well I suggest you bring people to a Traditional  music session.

Correct. Why would you want to take your visitors to an Orange Order museum? In all the times I've visited the USA, none of my hosts has ever offered to take me here.

That's nuttin'. Noel O'Leary is a tree surgeon.

Lady Lucan, wife of Lord
She reckoned her husband threw himself into the propellors of a cross channel ferry.

Came across in her tv interview earlier in the year as quite cold and sad really.  Hadn't seen her children in 35 years and didn't seem too cut up about that either.

They make TV dramas and fly-on-the-walls about dysfunctional families on welfare but there's just as much dysfunction, inhumanity and apathy at the other end of the economic scale. At least unemployed families don't have their kids reared by others until they're seven and send them away after that.

😂😂😂😂.No one was ever forced into believing.My allegiance is to the beliefs of the Church,emanating from the Apostles,not the Church as an institution.In all organisations back in the day,hardship and physical punishment was the name of the game,from canes in school,right up to capital punishment, which still exists in some USA states.Put aside your Catholic hatred and ensure salvation for your soul

They were thousands forced into sexual exploration by the Catholic Church .... 

 :o  I don't think so.
