    Enough with the ‘Was it for this?’ nonsense. Imagine if a British website was doing something similar regarding Ireland? There’d be uproar.

    The Cambridges just love prancing around with the shamrock. No, it wasn’t for this.

    Prince William is the Colonel of the Regiment, an honorary position. He certainly doesn’t “command” it.

    Has the ‘London GAA’ team beaten any of the county teams from the mainland? …or the NY lads, have they beaten any mainland teams?

    If I say ‘mainland’ again while referring to Ireland, will I win a prize?

    and they got to the final of Connacht a few years ago so they must have beaten a couple of teams

    My Irish is well rusty, but shouldn’t it be “Garda √Čireann” using the “thiss-all ginn-a-deacht” rule similar to the Guards? As in, if it’s “of” then the object reverts to the sigular of the noun? Anyone?
