    GAA thenselves responsible for any decision on who plays in Croke Park. Nothing to do with politicians.

    As for stadium in West Dublin, made sense as could have been built without x years of disruption at Lansdowne road, add in infrastructure then it would have been a 65,000 seater stadium, instead stuck with Aviva where part of stadium doesn't even have a proper stand.

    Cost of Abbotstown Stadium was €350 million, cost of Aviva was €411 plus selling the land of the Aviva for apartments would have generated €50 million.

    Bertie Ahern: - Independent.ie


    "But he said she has made "a lot of mistakes".


    Who TF does he think he is, he bankrupted the country and had to resign in disgrace, yet he thinks he can lecture the PM of another country, FF/FG should add another line to their supply agreement "Keep Ahern off the airwaves and printed media", he will say something really stupid soon and it will cause trouble, he represents nothing, he is the strawman.

    Letters to the Editor: - Independent.ie


    "I am not diminishing Ahern's contribution, but neither am I willing to forget the part he and FF played in destroying this country's economy. The way he always put FF before anything else. The way he defended the indefensible, as long as it was in FF's interest.

    No, Mr Harris could temper his eulogising of Mr Ahern, he does not require that 'dig out'!




    Nice letter on Ahern, he is only a stone's throw away from a comeback.

    Ahern takes swipe at Martin over renewal of deal to prop up Fine Gael for another year - Independent.ie



    Typical Ahern, agrees and disagrees with FF in almost the same sentence, you get the impression he will stab MeHole in the back, given the chance.

    RTE give him air time again, he hangs around like a bad smell.

    Ahern: UK must postpone Brexit | Ireland | The Sunday Times


    Ahern guessing and spluttering away as usual, he's nobody's child, FF wouldn't plss on him but MeHole is still loyal and afraid of him.

    “It’s in Ireland’s national interest to be close to the British. They are our nearest and biggest neighbours.”

    The old girlfriend Celia Larkin is now living in the UK, reckon Ahern catches up every other weekend as he watches United with his mates who used to throw money at him.
