“ Step it out Mary “ on Ryanair

By Phantom On January 26th, 2019

We’ve all been told tales of Catholic school boys in groups acting badly. Here, another such incident. Students of St. Brendan’s College in Killarney, blocking the aisles, singing without a permit, disturbing passengers who might wish to be sleeping.

Toxic masculinity! Irish privilege!!

Someone call the CNN and the Guardian.

The “ older generation “ Are often hyper-critical of the young. I’m not buying any of it. The emerging generation will be as great as any that preceded it.

Good job lads.

    And…

    I can hear ‘build that waaalllll’ coming from the Covington group in the new video, can you?

    😏

    Its all so very, very sad indeed.

    How the mighty have fallen.

  4. Quiet for a Ryanair flight, but a nice job by the boys and girls. They’re still going to lose next week.

  5. That’s fighting talk Pete.

  6. That’s fighting talk Seamus, because we’re looking for a fight.

    I hope.

  7. Eddie Jones needs to move over to soccer though. Already gurning about referees and the match hasn’t even happened yet.

  8. Iddie Jones is Iddie Jones. But he was complimentary about Sexton. He said that Sexton “has a bat phone to referees”. That set some Irish fans off. But the next line was that Sexton “had earned that respect, like Richie McCaw”. He’s putting Sexton’s standing up with possibly the greatest ever player,

    But anything could happen with the the ref on Saturday. Predictably, and stupidly, it’s a Frenchman, Jerome Garces. The best thing that can be said for Garces is that he’s not Romain Poite.

    I’ve been watching rugby a long time, and French referees have always had a rather novel understanding of the rules. I’m worried because Garces will turn up with his own rule book, and Ireland’s players are smarter than England’s to cop on to what a ref will and won’t allow.

  9. “Predictably, and stupidly, it’s a Frenchman, Jerome Garces. The best thing that can be said for Garces is that he’s not Romain Poite.”

    Poite’s one of the touch judges. It was always going to be one of Garces, Poite or Nigel Owens.

    I’m just happy that the Ireland-Wales match is being referee’d by Angus Gardner. Wayne Barnes has fucked that match up too many times for my liking.

    ” I’m worried because Garces will turn up with his own rule book”

    That’s probably my biggest criticism of Nigel Owens. He referees it according to the rules that he would like to have rather than the rules that are actually in place. Sometimes it works but more often than not he has a decision that should be a binning or penalty and he lets them go.

    “Ireland’s players are smarter than England’s to cop on to what a ref will and won’t allow.”

    I think the biggest criticism that I can make of England’s players was the debacle in the Italy game a few years ago. The Italians played a relatively novel interpretation of the rules (maybe not in the spirit but within the laws) and the English were completely at sea.

    They kept asking the referee (Romain Poite I think) if they could do this or do that and his response was: I’m a referee, not a coach. Ask your coach.

  10. A couple of months ago, I wondered if young Irish people still like traditional music

    And then I stumble into this!

  11. Phantom
    Wonder no more. There are thousands of young people who not only like, but love and play traditional Irish music every day.
    This video, from the All-Ireland Fleadh in Ennis, Co. Clare in 2016, is just one of many examples of young people enjoying the music.

  12. The Italians played a relatively novel interpretation of the rules (maybe not in the spirit but within the laws) and the English were completely at sea.

    That’s what I mean. Italy gave England free yards at the the breakdown and England were too mystified to simply pick up the ball and run forward. Anything not in the game plan confuses them.

  13. Gee, they’re not criticized in the fake news Irish Times like the Covington Catholic school “rowdy” lads were in the NY Times et al. Far as I can see these little Irish brats needed to be called-out in the public press for their disruptive anti-social behaviour far more than the “smirking, MAGA hatted” crowd.

  14. Actually, there is a multitude of talent there.

    Good voices, and some quite decent musicians.

  15. The song Step it Out Mary was written by Sean McCarthy from Kerry. He was a navvy working in London and he apparently wrote the song on an empty cement bag while working on a building site. Danny Doyle had a hit with it a long time ago.

    I thought the last line in the chorus is “Show your legs to the country man”, but these boys seem to be telling Mary to show something else that I can’t make out.

  16. A fine display of that Irish cultural phenomenon ‘the session’.

    Open, genial, welcoming and done for the pleasure of the onlookers as well as the participants, a superb contrast to another bunch of Catholic schoolkids recently in the news.

    Incidentally, rumour has it that it had to be done at 30,000 feet in the air as they were prohibited from doing it in Ireland because of Cultural Marxism or political correctness are attacking Irish culture or something.

  17. Paul, all they need is an Indian on the drums!

  18. Don’t forget the black Hebrew Chorus 😉

  19. Irish music with Indians on drums and black Hebrew singers?

    A multiculti’s dream 😃

  20. and all funded with an EU grant 😉
