Dunno but as long as I can play my 78s on the ould phonogram I don’t really mind.

#170

Serious amount of land there


#171

As I was just saying to the lads yesterday.


#172

Jonny Cooper and his ilk diving out in front of diggers at the sight of them driving up Mobhi Road.


#173

We have some contacts in South Armagh who may come in handy in the coming time … ahem …


#174

Dont think he was referring to that land as he mentioned DCU owned land
Its private land with care homes and is linked to Highfield healthcare up in whitehall.
(I think whitehalls new pitch was originally part of highfield healthcare land until it was used by port tunnel for number of years and then some deal was done for whitehall to take as pitches after port tunnel were finished.

I think Niall Moyna was referring to 10 acres of land on Griffith avenue.

In ‘The Great Escape’ the lads managed to dig a tunnel out of a German Prisoner of War camp with little more than a stiff upper lip to help them! They also did all of the digging from one end. For the metro, they should just start drilling from north county Dublin (don’t mess with The Geese!!) and once the drill is underground, don’t take it out until they reach the other end. They can spread the soil on gardens like in the film. Win win situation as I see it!


#176

Let them send the tunnelling drills in through the botanic gardens, only full of ould flowers an shyte


#177

Anyone recall the Irish international soccer player who “stsrred” in that film
