I have a ticket for the Irish Cup final, any other cup finals I have been at Cliftonville fans booed during the "Queen".
BBC Sport - National Anthem dropped for Irish Cup final
The BBC are reporting that it will not be played this year.
If anyone thinks this belongs in the sport section, just wait until Unionist politician release their fury!

Enjoy, I don't follow local soccer but this seems like a sensible move. Have a bit of a soft spot for the Glens dating back to when Jim Cleary played for them.

Irish Cup Final? What's that?

*jealous Ards fan*
Feel your pain as a Forest fan. Incidently, the first time I saw Forest was against Crusaders at Seaview. One of the McDonald's testimonial (One of them passed away last year?). Stuart Pearce and Steve Stone played, I think *cough* Kingsley Black made the bench. I'm guessing '95.

It's a shame the Irish Cup and FAI Cup weren't the same. :(

Our buses leave from the Crumlin Star in Ardonye, cheap pints too if you fancy it?

Sounds like you were born a good 10 years too late to be a Forest fan? You missed those, 'never to return' glory years.

I was expecting you to claim he wasn't that good or that so and so was a better player.
