    Especially as VERY few cities want to host them anymore.

    LA and Paris are about to divvy out the 2024 and 2028 games. Other cities were not trampled in the rush.

    We’re back baby!

    – I really don’t know why any city would host the Olympics; the only city that really seemed to do well out of was Barcelona.

      Agreed. No!!
      I’m really afraid of getting ill here, and we’re all about 2 paychecks from homelessness – so if there’s billions for Banking bailouts and Olympic Stadia – there’s money to help families living in barbaric situations, the elderly, mental health, schools, roads, water system upgrades, investment in the fraud squad..

        Between this and the property mess, it’s like we’re replaying the Celtic Tiger by going from zero to hedonism without experiencing any actual prosperity.

    It’s very refreshing, actually. We could host another world competition, or smaller maybe, european. Water sports, for example. We have our bright stars Murphy and ODonovans to compete – young talented faces of new Ireland. New stars will rise, of course, that could be very interesting. if our costal waters are suitable. But then again, there is a likelihood of unabated profit carnage. We could end up with Fyre festival like event.
    We should try though.

      Careful now, by the time his lawyers are finished it’ll be llibel to say Hickey had anything to do with the Olympics

    yet more evidence towards the case that Shane Ross is nothing more than a cynical populist

      I have a vague recollection of Francis Brennan winning the decathlon but I thought I’d dreamt that.
