    Yes even though were a small nation, one of our compatriates has managed to make us the most hated nation to Brazilians and single handed managed to ruin one of the great road races in the workld.

    Cornelius "Neil" Horan, a former priest who disrupted last year's British Grand Prix. He was previously jailed for two months following his race track protest at Silverstone.

    He was wearing a kilt and a green beret and a white placard with the words "The Grand Prix priest. Israel fulfillment of prophecy says the bible, the second coming is near," on it, was immediately arrested and taken to a police station. A police source said: "The man says he is Irish, he is also drunk. He had been to a taverna earlier. Police are going through his stuff."

    Who knows what might of happens if he didn't disrupt the Brazilian runner!!

    I'd quite like to see verification of that...

    But yeah, what in the hell is this guy thinking... Ass...

    Yup, that really sucked.

    He's a disgrace to the nation.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 88,978 ✭✭✭✭mike65


    He's obviously a bit mad (Ted), someone should send him to see a chap in a white coat.

    Feckin' Nutball. He's a disgrace alright.

    Still, it'd be amusing to see if he tries to pull any crap in Beijing. The chinese authorities won't take too kindly to having their games disrupted by some fire'n'brimstone muppet.

    There are at least three threads on this now!

    I'm sorry, but everyone seems to be saying that this is a disgrace to Ireland, and that Brazil now hate us!
    Give the country some credit for god sakes, I'm sure they thought "that bloody moron" rather than "that bloody country of which that moron is a citizen".

    This man and his rediculous actions have nothing to do with the Irish people, he's a nobody. If he were on the olympic team, fair enough, or a politician, but he's not, hes just an idiot

    If I was that Brazilian I'd be looking for some assassins-for-hire right about now.

    haha, i dont think he will be doing it for a while


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,309 ✭✭✭Kazu


    and i was just thinking a few days ago when Paula Radcliff was running that someone could just rugby tackle the person in first place there was no barriers in front of the crowd and only a few officials to stop this :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,575 ✭✭✭elivsvonchiaing


    Can't think the Greek authorities will go light-handed on this - they'll probably "discover" a roll of film on him with shots of airforce bases or something. I for one will applaud if they do.

    He should do at least a year for this - probably see men in white coats while he's at it though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,651 ✭✭✭Spunog UIE


    he hardly 'Ruined Olympics', just one race.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,148 ✭✭✭✭Raskolnikov


    He is an ordained priest but has been banned from saying mass for quite some time.

    To be honest, I found the whole incident after the Grand Prix amusing, even bought his book. Feel sorry for the runner though, he didn't deserve getting mobbed.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 10,921 ✭✭✭✭Pigman II


    What a prix.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,561 ✭✭✭quad_red


    i'd have given him a sly dig if I was in the crowd today.

    That poor Brazilian guy! All he has sacrificed to get to where he did only to have his concentration shattered by looney toon and his kilt of doom.

    Raskolnikov's link above http://www.deunantbooks.com/authors/Father_Neil_Horan/page1.html
    has this...

    "....into the life of a shy, gentle, genuine yet extraordinary man who is passionate about what he believes to be true, and about sharing his knowledge with others."

    I think if someone wants to get their message across, there are probably better ways than mobbing someone who has trained hard for something for years, and ruining their chance to win.
    Also, there's no chance that the majority of people are going to take him seriously now. Sure, people have seen what he has to say (twice now) but as demonstrated already in this thread, people just want him in a strait jacket (me included I must say) I'd say his message will get about as far as when Icke claimed to be the son of God...

    Ah yes David Icke, the father, the son and the goalie post! :) If the Brazilians get their hands on this guy, he will be crucified!

    The last race...the closing spectacle, having said that.

    And for the athlete he tackled - he has ruined the Olympics. It's also a somewhat tarnished victory for the man who actually won it as I'm sure he'll always wonder (and be asked) 'What if...'

    MIdnight express????

    Given his background he might enjoy that :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 62 ✭✭dee mm


    Dont want to see that. Twat!! I can think of more to say but hey not going there! Is he worth the breath?


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 13,018 ✭✭✭✭jank

    If he goes to the same police station that a mate of mine went to then it would be more of a physical thing.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,918 ✭✭✭Deadwing


    What happened?? I remember this guy running out during the grand prix, wtf did he do now?


  • Moderators, Regional East Moderators Posts: 21,503 Mod ✭✭✭✭Agent Smith
