Cows and guns

There was a Cabinet reshuffle in Ireland this week.  In the reshuffle, the Agriculture minister was given the Defence portfolio.

This is someone's Facebook suggestion for a logo for the Ministry:

Alfredo di Stefano RIP (title updated)

It's already been mentioned on the board, but it deserves its own thread.

Apparently he's in critical condition and in an induced coma.

He was 88 yesterday.

Sandy Jardine Memorial Race

30 June 2014 - 09:03 PM

We've been asked to let members know about the Sandy Jardine Memorial Race which is being run later this week.


City of Edinburgh Running Festival said:

Many of you will be aware of the professional running circuit in Scotland and may recall famous Scottish sprinters such as George McNeill. The circuit is still strong with events taking place throughout the summer months. One such event is taking place on Friday evening at Meggetland commencing at 6:15pm.

This will include a one off race in honour of Sandy Jardine who as you all will know was a fantastic footballer but he also enjoyed competing in the pro running circuit as a sprinter. With the support of Sandy's wife a 300m dash will take place in honour of Sandy and the race will contain one player running from Hearts, Hibs & Rangers, Newtongrange Star and some top rugby clubs in their respective colours.

It would be great for anyone keen to come along and support the player that is chosen to represent Hearts and to witness a pretty intriguing race between two different sports. For those not aware of the pro running, it's like a night at the greyhounds but just with humans!!

For more information, here are a couple of links to the event

So if you're interested, this event takes place this coming Friday evening at 6:15.

Another use for that referee's vanishing shaving foam....
