Can we not just take Cooper, and auction the rest off on EBay?


#184

Nothing could get over you lying down…


#185

Aside from the Dcu colleges teams using St Claire’s you also have, Dublin Senior Footballers, Dublin Senior Hurlers, Dublin Ladies Footballers, Dublin minor and u21 hurlers and Dublin Minor and U20 footballers. Should be no problem fitting in the 100 or so Na Fianna teams there for a few years


#186

Any word on when Spawell pitches will be ready?


#187

Not enough room for a full width pitch.


#188

No, but could do nursery. That said, who’d want to bring a Dublin 9’er through a building site to play a game? That could be conducive to being a tradesman. Perish the thought. Maybe they’d never get the sweet taste of Goji berries or Quinoa salad.

Joking aside… It’s a bullshit exercise. It’s not going to happen as long as NaFianna and the local schools put their shoulders to the wheel. The uproar would bring the whole project to a grinding halt. I fully expect the public consultation to explode before it’s signed off. The local politicians I’ve spoken to, agree fully.

The line is also due to go right under our house. What’s the craic with that? Presume it makes no odds to us (bearing in mind the gaf is 100+ years old). Will it be all rattly and stuff?

I remember living out in Fettercairn after we moved from the Mun. Every time they blasted in Roadstone you’d fell the whole house shake.


#190

The port tunnel works paid for all the damage to my gaf, so you’re quids in, especially when you include paint and plasterers… I’ll say no more for fear of incrimination!


#191

I wish I’d lived near there… Could have gotten a facelift for the ex.


#192

Bit on Prime Time up next . Get to see @DUB09 in the flesh :laughing:


#193

That’s not him!!!


#194

National capitalist curmudgeon Colm McCarthy gets wheeled out. Why? Just.


#195

Just stop the facking thing at Home Farm Road and then resume at Botanic Avenue. People can walk between the stops - if you’re going into town it’s downhill anyway.


#196

Senan on now …


#197

They’re knocking down a refurbished Townsend St baths and new apartments above them. There’s a vacant building falling apart 80 metres down the road! Who the fook are these people???

ps Did Senan call Jimmy a former member …


#198

Not like Senan to make a balls of something…
What age is Jimmy ? Must be knocking on mid to late 80s .


#199

or was it a founding member??


#200

Meant one says the other?! :joy:

Jimmy prob late 80s - absolute gent.


#201

Not before a couple of million euro are spent on 'consultants ’ who will come to the conclusion its a non runner.


#202

Good programme, Senan Connell spoke very well as did Jimmy Gray. Did some young fellow wander in shouting in the middle of it?
