You say that, but when Engerland's D-Day heroes took to the field last night, it had acquired the status of a "major international tournament" :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Haven't a clue how the whole thing worked and couldn't give a flying feck. Made the Pro14 look straightforward. Enjoyed England's fans disgracing themselves and the result mind.

I see there's a lot of folk getting all upset about comments about the Irish language, and particularly about the spelling of words, from John Cleese on twitter.

Well shur folk love getting upset about very little. :D

I see there was a big fight which resulted in a few arrests within shouting distance of Her Majesty. Shocking stuff seeing folk all dressed up but acting like corner boys. Maybe a British thing and herself may have even enjoyed the extra entertainment. :D :D :D

A senior Northern Ireland civil servant was paid £10,000 (€11,150) in compensation because he was offended at having to walk past portraits of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, it has emerged.

His complaints led to the portraits being replaced by a picture of the queen meeting Martin McGuinness, the former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland and ex-IRA leader.

Lee Hegarty, who is currently in charge of the Northern Irish Parades Commission, claimed that under human rights laws it was unfair to him to have to work in a place where he was offended by such portraits.

I've heard of civil servants getting money for nothing but this really is the cherry on top.
