Why not? As far as I know we never actually left the Commonwealth.

perfect opening event for the new Casement Park in Belfast

btw theyve subitted a revised/smaller planning application for that, think 32k rather than 40k so hopefully that gets the go ahead

We definitely left the Commonwealth.

International sporting tournaments are quite often looking less attractive these days. CIties that have allowed citizen involvement have recently seen Olympic bids turned down by the citizens. Because: scam.

We de facto left the commonwealth in 1936 and de jure in 1948. We actually left it twice!

Read up on it after I posted.
A reversal wouldn't be too difficult.

Sure. And England and Wales could leave the UK. Which would make things much simpler for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Lot to recommend it. Apart from the it's completely mental and never happening thing. Other than that though...

And you think that one will pass ? Numbers down a few thousand but the access and emergency exit problems still exist. Access point is through main corporate area so if there was a fire in that there is no exit strategy in place as it is the only side with street access.
The whole thing is a farce and the GAA won't accept an alternative site which has been offered.

Dreadful, dreadful ground. Everything about the ground has always been a pain in the hole, everything about getting there, watching a game there, the people who run it, getting out of it, everything. I'd rather watch Linfield play Rangers in Windsor Park wearing a 'king billy f%~ks kiddies' t-shirt than ever set foot in that kip again.

Thought the reason given was to preserve the history of the ground ?
Interesting to know what was actually meant by that.

I know it's Robert Kitson but it's good to see there's some foreign support for the 2023 bid.

So we need emergency legislation to host it?

Anyone notice what name the bould Theresa was using to refer to her party by at the weekend? It'd be funny if it weren't so desperate.

As far as the bid is concerned it is business as usual and BREXIT will make no difference. However I think there should be a little planning given to the worst case scenarios.

semi tangenital but shows crowds we can whip up and is good news in general

"AN ‘UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND’ for tickets has resulted in organisers of this year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland to increase capacity at one of the venues for three of the match days.

The UCD Bowl will host Ireland’s first three games of the tournament on 9, 13 and 17 August when they take on Australia, Japan and France respectively.

However, all match days have sold out, meaning organisers have had to lift capacity at the Bowl to over 16,000 for the three days."

UCD could be good for promo stuff eg watch All Blacks train etc

The Conservative and Unionist party is actually the proper and full title of the party known as the Conservatives or Tories
Started off the Tory party back in 1800 's then formed a government with a breakaway faction of the Liberal party in 1920 or thereabouts called the Liberal Unionist party and thus at that stage became what we have now the Conservative and Unionist party, it has feck all to do with the current agreement with DUP who would be more Labour orientated.

The current Ulster Unionist party has formal links with Conservatives and was the reason why Lady Sylvia Hermon left them and became an Independent MP, she has a staunchly old school Unionist party upbringing like many of the middle and upper class Protestants in NI quite a few of whom would rather vote SDLP or Alliance instead of giving the DUP support.

And there ends Monday mornings history of politics lesson from up here in the dysfunctional North of Ireland

How do you know? You know what kind of deal the UK will get? You know whether or not the CTA will be in existance?

You don't. So you simply can not say that Brexit will make no difference. It may make no difference, it may make a f%~king massive difference. But one thing I do know for certain, its that sporting organisations don't award tournaments to bids under clouds of uncertainty.
