Cheers mate.
I hope this thread can remain a little more civilised than the last ones.

You are welcome. Just got through watching it on Setanta.
Some quite poignant moments, I thought Peter Corry singing 'Bring Him Home' from Les Miserables was beautiful, and for me will no doubt become inexorably linked with this day when heard on future performances.
I also have a lot of family buried in Roselawn. A sad day but one that the people of Northern Ireland will hopefully use to celebrate George's life in their own inimitable fashion.

Wonder how long it will be before they are cashing in on "Best of Best" videos?

Slightly OT, but does anyone else think Calum looks like Jude Law?

I'm feeling a bit melancholy today, not homesick but maybe just reminiscent, missing my parents (they have both passed away) and thinking of good times past, don't know why.......when I heard the last song "Bring me up"(?) I did have a little tear....

Thought you might appreciate this lionheart...


Afraid I fell asleep, but just watched it on BBC.
Different class - that's all I have to say.

Thanks, I know exactly where that is. I was trying to spot my family on the Cregagh Rd at 2AM PST. Couldn't see them.
