    I doubt it. Would be very off during drugs or money to end up in a lake. Even if that was the case, I doubt they’d go to the paper or cops.

    Most obvious explanation, lads were taking golf balls without permission. Other lads were shooting somewhere they shouldn’t have been.

    Guy shooting at an unknown target, with unknown backstop, is an idiot. It could go very badly for him.

    Just came across this for the first time in a long time and thought it was appropriate in the face of the SACF ban 😂

    Anyone see the Nashville school shooters manifesto go up online the other day?

    I know there is currently a lawsuit in progress to prevent the release of the manifesto, but this does seem to be legit based on the chief of police's confirmation.


    Edit-fixed link.

    Seemingly all their recent twitter posts are login-gated, so changed to a direct website link.

    A fake was previously also leaked, but that appears to be the legit one.

    Read a few screenshots, same old nonsense. Ramblings of a crazy person. Reactions to it also not surprising. Cherry picking parts to feign outrage at. And ignoring the glaringly obvious if it doesn’t suit them.

    Agree, the ravings of a complete lunatic.

    I am somewhat surprised though at how long it's taken to be leaked, since the shooting happened in March after all and numerous groups & news orgs have requested access to it.

    I assume (and this is total speculation) it was withheld as it is evidence in an ongoing legal matter.

    Don’t get me started on vrt, a tax the eu fines Ireland on every year but we get more than the fine so keep charging it. Where is the free common market the rest of Europe has?

    Poland, Portugal and Ireland had an exemption to charge VRT until 08? The other 2 have stopped I think but we never.


    Anyway rant over, apologies.

    When it suits our dear leaders in the Dail that is.

    We are very A la Carte EU members.If there is "free money " to be got We are flag-waving Europeans.When it comes to the common defence of the EU superstate or having to do EU stuff of a more unpleasant nature.We are suddenly Irish.

    Just after putting on RTE radio 1 , there seems to be a debate about deer culling or releasing wolves

    2:00 pm



  • Registered Users Posts: 282 ✭✭Mississippi.


    Unsensible old talk.

    Wolves won't eat sheep etc.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,664 ✭✭✭Feisar


    I'm no Canis lupus expert however I'd say they'd eat the slowest option! IMHO, happy to stand corrected etc.

    First they came for the socialists...



  • Registered Users Posts: 15,023 ✭✭✭✭Grizzly 45


    What do Ursla Van Der Lyen, Nadia Terenzi Italy,Marie Schmidt Lower Saxony,Martino Rainer .Italy, have all in common? They, bar Ushi Van Der Lyen, have been victims of wolf attacks in 2023 In Western Europe.

    Ushi lost her pet pony, Dolly to a wolf attack on the family farm in northern Germany in 2022. If they introduce wolves into Ireland "to cull deer" well then all I can say is we have reached peak stupidity here . If we can't control packs of domestic dogs savaging shepherds' livelihoods every year around this time during lambing season. What will it be like when a team of literally, nature's special forces in the form of a Wolf pack descends on someone's flock, or prize horses or cattle? They are WELL capable of taking down a horse or a cow and any human who is unarmed and tries to confront them.

    Where will these wolves live in Ireland? We do not have vast forest areas all over Ireland, something like only 5% of the country is forest, not to mind a single wolf pack needs a range of something like Connaught and Munster of acreage to roam and mark as theirs.The last time I looked they had vast forests back in the 16th century around the same time the wolf was made extinct in Ireland.

    Trying to foist an apex predator back into a country that is no longer suitable and has changed permanently and dramatically since it was last here, just because of some romantic twaddle of "the noble wolf" being an environmental benefit for a, in reality, slight problem of deer overpopulation in certain hotspots is seriously dangerous idiocy.

    Holy ****, this **** is dangerous:

    Something that might be raised maybe in a forum or barstool and laughed off is gaining some sort of traction and getting column inches. A "study" claims wolf reintroduction is viable and who done the study, someone with an interest surprise, surprise. I'd love to see the parameters of the 1000 simulations they ran. Probably the same as the ones that recommended the lead ban.

    If we can’t introduce a few eagles without them being blown out of the sky, how would wolves not all be killed too?



  • Registered Users Posts: 15,023 ✭✭✭✭Grizzly 45


    Eagles arent wont to swoop down from the skies and attack you, unless you are bothering their chicks or nest.

    Not sure what the “interest” you refer to is. But the author of the article is also the person presenting the study in the image.

    I drew a different conclusion from you;

    In a nutshell, the study found that reintroducing wolves to Ireland’s landscape in 2023 would likely fail as wolf-human conflict would be rampant. 

    Rampant wolf-human conflict. Case closed.

    All we need! Another utter stupid GIMP shooting and not knowing where his goddam backstop is! This is why we lost being able to shoot on our property because of clowns like this.FFS its a simple rule.Don't send your Pew unless you are sure you know where your Pew is going to end up and stop, cant make it any simpler.

    More fodder for the Irish media of course to try and make it out that ligit gun owners are the problem because of seven negligent [No such thing as an accidental discharge]discharges last year.

    Sorry, but not interested in media agendas, but bear in mind that someone playing footy was hit with a bullet in the arm.

    Perhaps a few inches higher and it might have been a death, from a head shot?

    Or a child in a pram?

    Gun owners have to be safer than safe. This is madness. Hopefully they will be able to track down the idiot involved and relieve them of the firearm.
