- A New York bachelors weekend leaves happy memories - Betting on Ireland’s rugby team does not

- Internet and Facebook bullying comes home to haunt Irish parents - Tragic deaths of two teenagers reveal scope of the problem
I moved into field I don’t know that much about, rugby! I backed France to beat England and Ireland to beat Scotland, both losers. So my bet was well gone on Sunday by the time Ben Affleck was making his acceptance speech for Argo. I also had Galway to bet Kilkenny in the hurling in there, I should have backed them on their own. It was a great start by the Tribesmen and might be worth backing for the Championship this year. Anyway there you have it; greed doesn’t suit me!
It should be a brilliant night with a bit of music and madness mixed in together, so if you’re at a loose end come along!
So that leaves Donegal with a 100% record in All-Ireland football finals, the same percentage as Kerry in All-Ireland hurling finals!
Now you can all make up our own minds, but to me all Rory Mcllory wants to do is play golf and doesn’t want make any big statements about whether he is orange or green, in fact he is the white between them!
Like most thing Irish if the gathering will be good and last a year the scattering will be even better and last a decade!
So that was the week before the Rose of Tralee for me with highs and lows, where the lows far outweighed the high.
To all celiac (fussy eaters) and not celiac Roses leaving the States and all over the world this week for Tralee, have a safe trip we are getting ready here for you!
One thing if you’re doing a cruise beware of the sharks them may not all be in the water though!
A great start to married life!
It was great to catch up with old friends. We should all do it more often its good for the soul!
In 1932, De Valera took the oath, but said that it was only a ‘symbol,’ only a piece of paper. One might ask what would have happened if he had taken it the first day, ach sin scéal eile (that’s another story). De Valera did pretty well as we know after that and the rest is actual history. So, did McGuinness do the same as De Valera? He might have! Will he like De Valera go on to be Úachtarán na hÉireann (President of Ireland)? Time will tell.
One think they would have it respect just like all on the TV show.
