  1. Happy Independence Day! Enjoy the celebrations
  2. 6 days has all the moves, some slick dancing
  3. I haven't voted yet either but my process is nearing its conclusion and I'm listening to my top 15 now for what must be 10th time to help finalise the final placings
  4. Sindo can sponsor it
  5. Thanks buddy
  6. It's about to start and looks like it's going to be typically wet . @Bohemia I hope you are enjoying your first St.Patrick's Day in Ireland despite the weather
  7. Time to get the music thread up and running once again! This thread enables users to share in anything that takes their interest in the world of music. Happy listening everyone!
  8. Thanks so much! I will be going to the parade in my hometown in the afternoon and enjoying some good food and a few (too many) drinks later in the day
  9. Legendary Brazilian rider Rodrigo Pessoa has been named the new Chef d'Eauipe of Irish Showjumping. Really excited to see what he can bring to the table. Hopefully he can finally bring some consistency from the Irish team who have been underperforming hugely for over a decade. Robert Splaine held that position for far too long in my opinion without merit. Hopefully progress will follow http://www.theirishfield.ie/pessoa-is-new-irish-show-jumping-chef-dequipe-262922/
  10. In Ireland we invested millions in rolling out voting machines in the early 2000s but they were never used and now lie in some storage place going to waste.... and in fact still costing us fortunes just to keep them stored. That's how we like to do things here I like the drama and suspense of waiting for the votes and the updates from each count centre. If we did move to the instant results of electronic voting then at least I want them to have some creative way of delivering the results like in TISC or something
  11. If only I was a bit quicker I might catch up
  12. Yeah but hockey rankings are pretty useless to determine current form. I remember we played Italy in World League last year (Olympic qualifiers) and your team was decent.
  13. Congrats! Italian men's team are much stronger than Ukraine
  14. OMG, this is just too good!! You should make one with all of us
  15. 2020 Vision Lee Cole - Field Hockey 2020 Vision member and rising hockey prospect Lee Cole was on the score-sheet in the opening match of Ireland's World League 2 campaign in Belfast today. As well as playing a vital part in the opening goal of the game with his interception allowing team-mate Jeremy Duncan to convert, Lee smashed home Ireland's fourth in a comprehensive 9-2 victory. The tournament is a stepping stone towards qualification for the 2018 World Cup and a top two finish here will ensure qualification to the Semi-Final stages of the World League. Up next for Ireland is a match against Austria who took a penalty shoot-out win over Italy in their opening match of the pool.
  16. Welcome to the Ireland National Thread. May the road rise to meet you
  17. Thanks for the link Really enjoyed this performance. looked good to my very untrained eye Loved the music
  18. Thanks for your knowledge, very insightful as always I hope they will be there in Tokyo but it's a long time away yet. I don't see anyone else on the dressage scene here who could step up when Vancouver K retires. It looks like we will have to rely on this combination for the foreseeable future.
  19. That sounds promising. Do you think Vancouver K can keep going for the next Olympics?
  20. You just know it's gonna happen
  21. Wow, that is fantastic news! I never thought I would see the day that an Irish rider wins a 5 star event in dressage and to do it in Germany in front of a big crowd is even more special. Very proud of our duo
  22. Live streams of Rugby Europe Championship and 2019 World Cup qualifiers: Germany v Belgium http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/rugby-europe-international-championships-m15-germany-vs-belgium Spain v Georgia http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/rugby-europe-international-championships-m2-spain-vs-georgia Rugby Europe Trophy and 2019 World Cup qualifier: Netherlands v Portugal live stream is having some problems but I will link it anyway http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/rugby-europe-international-championships-m2-netherlands-vs-portugal
  23. Yes, when we moved to the new website and lost access to the old threads I had to re-write the rules and I forgot to add this rule again So it will only be fair to allow the Moldovan user to use this song if he wishes as he was playing by the rules and was not his fault but mine. I will add this rule to the next contest again (remind me if I forget) because it's better to make TISC completely distinct from Eurovision in terms of songs, no point in repeating entries. @Ionoutz24 if you are happy with your entry then that's fine but if you wish to change it then you still have time. And apologies for this inconvenience.
  24. Welcome to the contest and to the TISC family Iran!! What a pleasant surprise Yes, that is absolutely right, and when picking the Iranian song, for this Annual contest the song must be one that was released within the last year (2016 or later). Good luck
  25. Well this sums of the sad state of Ireland's Eurovision policy thanks to RTÉ.... it is truly a disgrace when Johnny Logan, the Eurovision legend himself has such harsh words for his own country's Eurovision process. http://esctoday.com/141849/ireland-johnny-logan-brands-rtes-eurovision-formula-cheap-and-nasty/ RTÉ can't even pretend anymore that they try because they clearly mess this thing about to make sure we haven't a cat in hell's chance of even looking respectable.
