    So plan is now that we shut out private capital from building houses and let Sinn Fein get the County Councils to hire employees to build 25 Ballymuns.

    Luckily for Sinn Fein the work that the coalition has been doing will be providing enough supply just in time for O'Brion to come in a claim credit for it

        The plan is clearly to hold up everything until O’Brion takes over and then approve everything to claim credit.

He birdied 12, 14 and 17 to shoot 2 under on his round.

          ​​​​​​He is ridiculously long off the tee. He has been doing a lot of gym work the past 2 years and now has same average swing speed as Mcilroy but his short game maybe needs some work. Didn't chip it close enough when he did miss a green. Really nice chap with a good head on his shoulders. Hoping to go to Arizona state after leaving cert next year

          ​​​​​​
          Had a similar one playing against a young Niall Kearney off scratch in the scratch Matchplay. Lost 3/2. Played great and held a raker on 15 for birdie and he followed me in from 20ft. Would have been only 1 down then. Lost 16. He played Walker cup the year after.
          His rival it seems, had broken his dreams,By stealing the girl of his fancy.Her name was Magill, and she called herself Lil,But everyone knew her as Nancy.

            Can only imagine the absolute headbangers that work for pride Dublin. That liveline debate seemed to have balance from both sides, but more sense on one side than the other.

                Have spent far too much time listening back to Liveline to find out what people were talking about. Had kind of assumed only people in nursing homes or hospices were still listening to it. Apparently not.

                      It was meant to be a conversation about the wording of a maternity bill and turned into

                      The moderation needed to be better, I don't personally think Joe set out with bad intentions but there was a LOT of misinformation in those broadcasts.

                        Neither imo. Seemed a pretty well balanced debate, though Joe Duffy while being neutral does have a tendency to say the complete opposite of what he's trying to say ( while trying to summarise a previous speakers bit). It does seem that many groups, like Dublin Pride, consider it hate speech for women to say that 'men who think they are women' shouldn't be allowed to share their changing rooms or toilets.

                            I'm finding the whole thing incredibly confusing.

                            I've had the word 'Trans' muted on twitter for the last couple of years because it's just such a fucking toxic topic, especially when on that medium all you're exposed to are fringe elements on both sides.

                            I got interested in it recently though when the Real Science of Sport podcast covered it. Covered specifically transwonen's participation in women's sport.

                            As much of a liberal leftie I am I pretty much straight away was swayed by the argument that Transwomen should be excluded from participation, competition with biological women.

                            What's interesting is, the argument, and I hold this, only holds true for sports where inclusion compromises fairness, or safety. The people arguing it explicitly state this. They see no harm or issue with TW competing in Archery say. Or Transmen competing in sports where safety isn't a concern.

                            Yet, they're vilified as transphobic. I'd be labelled transphobic for this post. Peer reviewed scientific papers back the argument though. There is currently no medical process that can reverse the innate advantages male puberty endows.

                            I started to feel myself getting sucked in then to deeper anti trans arguments, reading, not getting involved. The kind of stuff expressed on that show.

                            That's what happens people when reason is responded to with vilification. They go down a rabbit hole, responding to backlash with backlash. That's the route Glinner went down.

                            The bedfellows though were making me ill, Cora Sherlock, Hermann Kelly.

                            What's interesting to me though, in light of comments around 'hate speech' and talk of cesorship, and Pride cutting ties is, the arguments made by Trans folk, in particular parents of Trans kids pulled me back from that. Those arguments enabled me to empathise.

                            I will still hold the view that, unfortunately, until science allows it, TW should be excluded from competing against biological women in sports where fairness or safety is compromised.

                              Davis Reilly at 70/1 is my FRL bet. No outrights yet. Rahm, Xander and Rory to shoot 71 or better all out early 3/1 on PP is a reasonable bet.

                                  Ah, maybe I've been too influenced by my terf friend but I'd even have a problem with that in archery. By all means have a separate category where women can compete against transwomen in full knowledge of who you are competing against. Anything else makes women's sports a joke.

                                    The whole thing is complicated ​​​​​​, and as a rule we dont do complicated well.
                                    The maternity bill wording which caused the furore is pretty straightforward to me. Someone who dresses, acts, looks, lives like a 'man' yet still has a uterus and decides to become pregnant should have the same protections and rights as a biological woman. They should enjoy those rights without having to worry about being in some legal quagmire regarding their pronouns.

                                    I largely agree about trans women in sports when it affects the safety of participants but it opens the door to this kid of hate filled madness.

                                      It's pretty clear to me that they are still a woman. If they want to be called a cat, a Wookie, or a Lemon, that's up to them. And it's up to me whether I'll decide to go along with it. There are clearly some unintentional problems stemming from the gender reconnection act. And no, I haven't read it all https://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/...nacted/en/html

                                          Yes, that Ohio bill is nothing short of evil. Republicunts. Civilised society needs to come up with civilised solutions.

                                          Some of the commentary on the anti side was awful, and you're right, not too far from similar scaremongering around Gay marriage.

                                          You can understand some of the more reasoned arguments made though, and fears women have. The problem though is reasoned non emotive discussion, that can allay those fears seems impossible.

                                            Seemed to me more like severe twitter addiction. Trying to argue something, and not being very good at it, and losing the run or yourself in the process on twitter are very different things.

                                                Murphys Bar on College street or the Tatler Jack fits all your requirements.

                                                Trad session round the corner in the Grand, think its changed names to Patsys or something now.

                                                O Connors pub on High street has live music and a great pint but is small.

                                                Unsure about music in the Laurels at Market Cross but they used to have lively trad sessions, they also do good food.

                                                Not a recommendation, but guaranteed music in the Dunloe Lodge. Enter at your own risk though. A pub I have only ever been in once and will never return, it's that bad. Would be quite the experience for foreign people.

                                                        Trad session round the corner in the Grand, think its changed names to Patsys or something now.

                                                        O Connors pub on High street has live music and a great pint but is small.

                                                        Unsure about music in the Laurels at Market Cross but they used to have lively trad sessions, they also do good food.

                                                        Not a recommendation, but guaranteed music in the Dunloe Lodge. Enter at your own risk though. A pub I have only ever been in once and will never return, it's that bad. Would be quite the experience for foreign people.
                                                        You the man. Thanks Dobby. I'll let you know how they got next week.

                                                          Because things aren't black and white as much as you want them to be.

                                                          I'm not an expert in any of this but sticking your fingers in your ears and pretending it doesn't exist helps absolutely no one.
                                                          luxury beliefs indeed.

I find it amazing the supposed amount of support they have. it's simply fantastical with no rational thought whatsoever. I'd guess they have <5 competent T.D's.
