She was a Country Singer in a Stage Show in Grease singing storyline songs . Better at Denver and Dylan singing a Sixties /Seventies songbook. I wouldn't class her as a "country singer". She sang country songs when she was younger but her voice was more suited to the easy listening/soft r...

Re: What annoys people????

On a related issue. 'Lionesses', etc Why do international teams have to have a wee name? Why can't they just be called England or whatever? I feel a certain amount of the blame for this lies with the New Zealanders. And the Aussies have taken it to extreme, but I worry that it is spreading to other...

Re: ASK THE EXPERT

Boxing is organised on an all island basis and we've got a team. Even more interesting is that Barry McGuigan, from Clones, represented NI at the Commonwealth Games in the late seventies. Maybe represents the longing of the people of the occupied three counties to return to their rightful homeland....

Re: What are you watching?

Bread Boy at the Lyric. Truly dreadful. Imagine the worst school play you've ever seen. That would have been much better. No plot no direction and a load of posh kids pretending they're from the Shankill and failing miserably. That's 2 hrs and £24 I'm not getting back. Sorry if any of yer weans or g...
