Get It Off Your Chest


#1308

Not trying to be witty at all. I mean every word of it.

I watched the International Rules Game over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Seemed far more competitive than previous years and there was a few cracking scores.

Some good performances from a few of the Irish players. Although I have no idea what Paul Murphy from Kerry is doing out there. At 5’8" he looks like a kid running around trying to chase grown men!

10 points down and the second test to come next Saturday morning sets it up nicely.

So you object to Nelson Mandela becoming a free man of Dublin?


#1311

Peter mcverry isn’t a dub.


#1312

Dublin born or made a massive or unique contribution to the city. It’s not that hard to understand surely.
Nelson Mandela has absolutely no connection to Dublin at all. No more than Aung San Su Kyi.


#1314

It is not restricted to Dublin born people or people who contribute to the city. The City Council’s own website says the award acknowledges the contribution of certain people to the life of our city but that it also ‘bestows honour to important visitors to Dublin.’

So do you want to rewrite the ‘rules’ for who gets it? Incidentally JK Rowling is a Freewoman of London as is our old friend Douglas Haig … whose incompetence sent hundreds of thousands of Irishmen to their death …


#1315

Yep. I’ll rewrite the rules happily. The idea of a bunch of councillors deciding who is important doesn’t do it for me. A lot of the choices are ludicrous. Obama was granted it in February. And his wife. Why. For being married to him?

Off the wall stuff.


#1316

I have to be honest Alan - I’d be a bit peeved to see Enda Varley getting it …


#1317

Mind you, David Clarke might be due one with that final kickout being a “unique contribution to the city”


#1318

He has already got overrewarded!!

Someone should start a thread to see who we’d get Alan to honour.

Gooch for me - huge testimonial dinner which raised €12.50 for two charities … each!


#1319

Just seen the Gardai up there on St Stephens Green kicking all Geldof’s sheep out.


#1320

for being a fox. I’m all for Michelle Obama getting free woman of Dublin


#1321

Mugabe under house arrest? How dare they treat an ex-WHO Goodwill Ambassador like this???


#1322

Christian Bale is shape shifting again for his role as Dick Cheaney . Guys a psycho !


#1323

Method actors. Mad f*****s


#1324

There’s madness in their method …


#1325

one of the more enjoyable roles I’d imagine. piling on the pounds and getting paid to do it.


#1326

No bother to him losing it as well .Maybe this will be the fat Brando period of his career .


#1327

Boggles the mind that every year people have to be reminded not to do this


#1328

Be safer to just use the microwave.
