Ah i’d say Galway suffered the worst and to this day - Half of Mayo live there.,

Sorry MM!!

Couldn’t resist.

I heard that before. Makes you wonder about the origin behind county colours and emblems.

The red hand in the Tyorne jersey was meant to be from the O’Neill clan in the 9 yr war.

Above the crest is Countae O’Neill.

The high seat of the O’Neills isn’t too far from Omagh.


#1511

I love the high seat in O’Neills.

Makes it easy to catch the barman’s attention.


#1512

Don’t dare dis’ the high seat of the O’neills.

It might look like a bunch of oul rocks…well that’s exactly what it looks like…but it’s only place the local primary schools can afford to take kids to.


#1513

No disrespect intended Daller.

Meant O’Neills in Suffolk Street.


#1514

I know!!

Just picking rows coz I’m bored and the boss’s car is still in the car park.

As soon he goes…I’m out o’ here.


#1515

Not if he’s on here, you’re not! :sunglasses:


#1516

Sorry - just got that!

Very witty.

Edit: I’m not slow witted…but some of the jokes here are very fast. Goes to show what they say about town folk…can’t be at them.

Yes Mayoman I read that before about Mayo’s population loss, largest in actual number decline. I think Mayo and Leitrim had the biggest in proportion to population also. Mayo had a bigger population than the likes of Dublin, I think only Cork and maybe Galway had bigger populations. Achill was quite densely populated at the time.


#1518

Naw … it’d be just tooooo easy …


#1519

Achill was the Rome of its day


#1520

But now Dublin is the most densely populated :wink::grin:


#1521

Bit of a hospital pass there Dublin09


#1522

Being a nice guy I didn’t put the boot in … and you rob my line and insult my people. Shocking …


#1523

And wharever your having yourself


#1524

Rome after Hannibal and his Carthaginians were through it.


#1525

So true .There is a brilliant recent publication on the famine "atlas of irish Famine " some work.The scale of it in global terms is unreal much bigger than any famines worldwide since.Turns out it wasnt a famine but a genocide I think its beginning to be accepted as such in Britian now.


#1526

Wernt most of the people who fled the famine to.america from the western seaboard


#1527

There was actually a worse famine in 1740
