Replying To points50swiththeargyllsonthewrongfeet:  "When I lived in Foxrock, every year, Foxrock put on a fete (very English) for Foxrock "village". Every year, they put up red, white and blue bunting. It was like being back up home around the 12th lol. Everyone in the Gables wine bar read the Daily Telegraph, and spoke with faux English accents. West Briton is not an insult (unless you think being British is bad), it's merely an accurate description of a rich Irish minority who view Irishness and Ireland with a discreet contempt."
Nothing new there, that's how the Dubs became known as the "Jackeens". A good auld country woman got a bit annoyed with all the Union Jacks flying in the city to welcome queen Vic to Dublin and her famous put down to the locals was "Ye and your f****ng jackeens" meaning union jacks of course.

All managerial posts are sorted by this now I'm sure. Club season just around the corner.

I think to be fair to Meath ( not an expression I use often) the Royal in this instance relates to the Kings of Ireland, and does not relate to anything across the Irish sea.

Just wanted to get a Tyrone opinion on the amount of media work that their players are doing recently. It seems way over the top compared to any other counties. Many many podcasts on many platforms the last 6 months from a good 6-7 players talking about everything, some are great and touch great topics that need to be covered but Conor Meylers on OTB recently looks to be one that is needless. It just sticks out that its all tyrone players, dont see many mayo, dublin, kerry players etc on national media talking so much.
