Ar chuairt ar na colcheathracha

31 July 2008

Tá mé ag dul ar shaoire an tseachtain seo chuig an Bhriotáin; tá an bosca ar dhíon an ghluaisteáin, lán go béal le héadaí, bróga, crocs, buicéid agus rámhainn, uachtar réamhghreine, uachtar iarghréine, culaith snámha agus éadaí do na laethanta fliucha.

Taking the Field of Valour

31 July 2008

WHILE regular sports columnist and true blue Dub Matt Treacy is off spending a fortnight in somewhere like Playa Del Trabolgan, carrying out an in-depth study into the performance-enhancing qualities of 12 pints of Guinness and an extra large King Prawn with Broccoli in Oyster Sauce every night, An Phoblacht has nervously allowed one of Matt's country cousins, 'Gael Gan Naire', to line out as substitute under the back door rule. Our worried-looking Editor takes this opportunity to earnestly remind readers of a nervous disposition and Max Mosley's libel lawyers that sports columnists do not reflect the official views of Sinn Féin or An Phoblacht.
