Won’t be attending in person but will watch it in TV like Royal Wedding just to check out the dresses and hats on stage

    Remember the Euros in 2016 there was a hape of auld duffers writing in to the papers giving out about sponsorship branding and slogans being written on the tricolour. Technically nothing should be added to the green white and orange. But these will be the same coffin dodgers having a stroke in the Phoenix Park with all the flag waving they’ll be doing at Frankie with these abominations.

      I wouldn’t describe myself as madly-nationalistic, but I do think it is a bit disrespectful to put random oul scutter on our national flag, be it a Guinness logo, the Pope, ‘Davy Keogh Says Hello’, or anything else.

        it’s a pet hate of mine as well, I turn into a grumpy(er) old man on the subject.

          And people who do it say “It’s only a piece of cloth” if you object to their scrawls on the national flag.
          Feck off, ‘Fex. Use your own yellow flag.

      Have you been watching “The Game”?

      I get pangs of homesickness watching it and I live in Ireland.

      1. Frilly Keane

        Yeah
        But not getting the homesickness thing
        Although I can understand it

        Its made me more loyal to the GAA
        i think
        Like, t’would make ya more determined ta Stand up and Defend what we own kinda thing
        Fortunately I’m still part of the oul’ Guard of Blaggards, Boggards and Bloggards so I’ve never drifted far from The Game

        And for this week only
