The press seemed to like what McKeever did when he came on, but I thought he looked rather immobile. What did I miss?

I think a NI with a nationalist majority would be more likely to be decent simply because nationalists are the locals and don't have the persecution complex that goes with being the settlers.Anywhere that was colonised by outsiders the outsiders have problems.

I dont see any great trend among Shiiners to extend the hand of friendship. Their attitude to the opening of Croke Park to rugby etc, the admission of PSNI to the GAA and their triumphalism following the Assembly elections show they are no better than the other side.

That's right  ::)

Ever wondered why Nationalist led councils in the North are more inclined to have sharing agreements in place with the Mayoral type roles and why Unionist led ones don't?

Yip, its those baddies in Sinn Fein.

Avondhu star, educate yourself and form your opinions on the North somewhere other than the Irish Independent and RTÉ.
I was thinking that so well said.

Just look at East Belfast. There's been a shed load of money spent in the east on the CS Lewis square, walkways/paths and bridges. Not one tourist in sight, which is no bad thing because there are some very ugly bonfire sites beside the paths.

Agreed. In fact, I'd be pleased to attend Orange parades and participate in 18th century rituals without having the the union jack shoved down my throat.

Counties get no return in gate receipts?

Bar bringing people into the city(town really) what benefit do they get from hosting matches or is there a stipulation that they have to?

Bringing people into town at 6:30pm on a Sunday evening is only good for pubs and fast food outlets.

Use this thread to propose new synonyms. I'll start with:

Smugness - Jeffrey Donaldson's face

GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Round 2B draw in full:
Wexford-Monaghan
Cavan-Tipperary
Carlow-Leitrim
Westmeath-Armagh

I was surprised they took O'Hanlon off myself, Murnin too but he looked like he took a knock. McParland was lucky getting the full shift imo. The drop to the bench could be the kick up the arse that Campbell needs. Looked hungry 2nite.

Whilst Grugan took his scores, I thought he dropped or missed any kick-out to him?

Good to see O'Hanlon finally having a good game for Armagh.

Grimley was immense.

Can Armagh win two games in a row?

Holy smokes - four point lead

Hmmm. I assume Stefan Campbell must not allowed to play again when the ground is firm.

Looks like Ruairi Corrigan is fit again after nearly a year out.

That's a big plus for us

Heck no. Keep him fit for the next round.

Localised word for dunghill? Certainly my Dad pronounced it the way you spelt it.

Weren't you posh!

Hell yeah. One of my weekly chores used to be burying the dry toilet in the dunkle.

All this nonsense about her being found out  now the 'mainland' know all about the party will not make one iota of difference to DUP.

If they fell in a dunkle of shite they would come out smelling of roses

Maybe Pete will have the Armagh job before he leaves the Athletic Grounds!

Ruth Dudley Edwards column in the Belfast Telegraph

When in the 1980s I began to know Northern Ireland politicians well, I passed through the stage of being beguiled by nationalist charm and repelled by unionist truculence until I reached the conclusion that, when you looked at substance rather than style, unionists were frequently nicer than they seemed and nationalists the opposite.

Republicans, of course, were a different matter.

While there are individual Sinn Fein supporters for whom I have a reluctant liking, I have nothing but contempt for the leadership of the cult which Adams, Martin McGuinness and their comrades fashioned out of their murder machine.

I’ve known a fair few Protestant bigots, but what made Sinn Fein so dreadful was the way in which it taught its supporters to hate their neighbours by wildly exaggerating historical wrongs, demonising their victims, and embracing all the propaganda techniques of George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth in 1984.

According to the polls, there would be a lot of nationalists and SF voters on this board. You've no substance. Plus, have you been taught to hate your neighbours? Please tell.

Is there a curtain raiser match on Sunday?
