    Shall hence should it be renowned as, “Eton-Gate”? The level of types that enter Oxbridge are from schools such as Eton.
    There’s an air of, ” I’ve a First in Geo-Political Science” from Trinity as she serves my latte.

        Prince Edward (He, who used to work for Andrew Lloyd Webber) got 2 ‘E’s at ‘A’ Level from Eton, but it secured him a place at Cambridge, where the minimum requirement is 3 ‘A’s. “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”.

            Not Eddie, but ALW,.I was given tickets for “Phantom of The Opera “(with Michael Crawford) as a thank-you, which was nice.
            Although I did have to cover a shift of Autocue op at SkyNews of The Wedding of Edward and Sophie. Those are 5 hours of my life, I’ll never get back.

      ah…I’m totally split in McGregor business

      on the sporting front its nothing but a farce just the latest evolution of Dickey Davis’ World Of Sport with Giant Haystacks vs Big Daddy

      but then so many modern sports are taking the p!ss out of us…you can’t trust cycling, athletics and there’s performance meddling in all top tier sports…so maybe in the end it’s just entertainment folks and McGregor is a pioneer of sorts and he’s a Dub and we should be proud of him

        1. martco

          I’m coming down on that side for sure.
          He’s a consummate professional and had the vision to go somewhere new and hasn’t caused any harm that I know of

          I hope he gets the score draw and replay out of it (my personal idea on the next move due here) and I wish him all the best!

          and if it somehow ends up in his hands then watch on to see Italia 90 level homecoming with Leo PR genius as grand marshall

          All I am going to say is that while I’m not mad into his persona, I think his work ethic and drive and utter dedication is amazing and I think he’s a great sportsman and showman. He can certainly own the crowd.

          But there’s footage from one of the press conferences he did a while back where he talks about his son and his legacy – and I think that was a great glimpse into what the real Conor McGregor is like. I certainly liked him far more after seeing it.

        2. martco

          I reckon they should remove all athletes now from their shackles and let them at it wacky races stylee

          let likes of lads at Team Sky handling the athletes get up to all sorts of no hold barred stuff…super horse drugs…rocket motors….wheel spikes like the Bond DB5 in Goldfinger…let the 100m sprinters wear Heelies with miniature McLaren engines…..brill telly and imagine what Hickey could do with those tickets?!?

          1. Shayna

            Speaking of tickets…. tomorrow’s match at Croker is completely sold-out. Doubtless, the throw-in will be delayed (as per the norm) to accommodate the Dubs who arrive in swarms, late. God love them, they have to travel so far.

          2. Brother Barnabas

            we arrive late but we stay late too, shayna

            your lot will be heading for the exits with 20 minutes to go

        3. Lilly

          I hope one of them wins decisively, preferably McGregor. He’s a character, a force of nature and a showman. Good to see Imelda May there too.

          1. Bookworm

            Completely overrated

            Basically an Englebert Humperdinck for hipsters

            She’s a chocolate teapot

  2. Shayna

    @ Brother – Honestly, I find it a tad unmannerly to arrive late to any engagement with a “throw-in” time. I know it’s a certain tactic by the Dubs. It’s called “sportsmanship” – which despite it being positive sounding, it’s the opposite.
    Ryan “Ricey” McMenanamen did his research on Colm “The Gooch” Cooper’s family in ’05. Ricey tortured the Gooch, verbally throughout – The Gooch scored a solitary point.
    My lot will be there long after your lot will have seen enough.
    Do you really think that Seán Cavanagh is going to retire this year with just 3 All-Irelands?

    1. Brother Barnabas

      in fairness, shayna, id say lost people would accept tardiness (a “tad unmannerly” though it might be) over the violent, thuggish behaviour of the Tyrone fans a couple weeks ago (Armagh fans no better, mind).

      1. Brother Barnabas

        it’s alright, Harry. we’re done – she won’t respond to that.

        sense of entitlement to criticise Dublin at every turn. don’t like it turned back at them though.

        1. Harry Molloy

          I’m a Mayo man but Bernard brogan is close to Jesus, incredible player and likeable.

          that’s what I dislike about this Dublin team, they’re too hard to dislike

          1. Harry Molloy

            but I’ll put an asterix for Jim Gavin’s head to the side kitten/jesus post match interviews, say something of worth please, you’re doing well enough to say something!

    2. Frilly Keane

      Oh shurr’up Shay would ya

      Delayed throw ins had nothing t’do with Gamesmanship and playing mind games
      It was feckin Dubs guzzling porter n thinking they’d time for annuder round an they still only at Ashbourne

      Or getting lost on the way to Thurles

      Now go back to your own crowd and rethink this power of prayer boo boo yere selling

      Hon’ de’Jacks

    Without appearing, “I told you so”. Mayo beat Kerry today, as I predicted. Tyrone will beat the Dublin types tomorrow. It’ll be a Mayo v Tyrone in the Final.

          Brother, you have a Life-Long Free Pass.

    Jaysus, just saw “It’s nothing to do with me” Leo at the Women’s World Cup!! They’re more of a man than he’ll ever be :-D – He’s VERY worried about the flood damage in Donegal!!

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      And the reason for this is -Tribalism – in a tiny country of Four and a half million people. It is exemplified by a certain poster above. “He may be a corrupt boo boo, but he’s OUR corrupt boo boo, so we’ll keep voting for him – and woe betide people from other” parishes ” who speak ill of him,”. NO solidarity, that’s why we’re doomed.

    2. Yep

      Why disappointed? As the article said, they would be competing in many areas. Why become a junior partner with a party with a sullied reputation and that key members of the soccies have a bad history with.

      It wouldn’t make any sense to make alliance now. None at all.

  5. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Forgive me before I get started but earlier on I saw a few scrums on the RTÉ 6.01 ‘NEWS’…
    Girls playing Rugby.

    Yeah, it doesn’t make sense, but it did at the time, I think…
    I’m still confused.

    The tighter the trousers, the more interesting the sport, ammin’t I right?

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          Oops again…

          I’m only getting home from work recently.
          I’m probably drunk, still.
          I don’t know.

          It’s very hard for me.
          Maybe it’s hard for you?

          I’ll meet in the Amphitheatre, behind the speakers.
          Let’s talk.

    F U’ G, hey, hay eccentrics.
    I’m taking over this thread now. Deal with it or don’t.

    They next two weeks is about YOU buying tickets for an EVENT you shouldn’t miss.
    iIVE FORGOTTEN THE NAME OF IT, BUT IT IN KILKENNY OR SOMETHING.

    Just buy the tickets. You don’t have to turn up.
    – Just buy the tickets.

    And for the love of Jah, please turn up EARLY..
    NO, earlier than that.

    You probably think I don’t keep me best tunes to me chest, but I do.
    Find out the truth on the day.

    The sun will be shining and I am a rainbow with you.

    I’m on FIRST.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Totally seriously… I told three people about this today.
      I need seventeen tickets so far. No joke.

      This is gonna sell out as soon as it hits TicketMaster.
      – You know it, Johnny knows it. I know it.

      Johnny, I need at least 20 tickets.
      Get your act together.
      Time is tight…

      We’re gonna have a party.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      You’re at least 70% of my reason for doing this.
      – I thought being incredibly good-looking was enough..

      I have two skills.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        One of them is ‘encouraging meself’, the other four are inmuneration, honesty and dedication.
        And belligerence,
        And sillyness, and a ‘je ne sais pas…’ attituditary, and making up new words, etc.

        I know where you live Catherinecostelloe, kind of.

        Stop messing… I’ll see you on the 10th Sept.
        It’s my Birthday on the 9th. (56 8r 16… choose one.)
        (If you think a web-birthday-card is enough… It isn’t.)

        See you the Sunday after the one after this one.
