    Loved a game of naked pool!!!

    Supreme talent but a fcukin head case, a few very good mates of mine played with him on the Ballymahon team he won a Longford Senior with. Stories about Frankie were something else, but they all admitted Ballymahon would have never won the county title without him.

    His display against kildare in Newbridge in 2003 was unbelievable

    25 points between that game and the preceding one against Offaly. Joke that he didn't get an All Star.

    Game was in Portlaoise as it happened D. I remember it well....through the floods of tears leaving the ground :( I remember Kildare were a point up towards the end of injury time of normal time, Brian Lacey had the ball about 30m out. The Da turns and says 'That's it now, we'll hit the road and get out a little early...' as Lacey promptly kicks an effort short into the goalie, Roscommon break out, ref plays on, Dolan kicks an absolutely ridiculous point to equalise from the sideline. A microcosm of my entire life supporting Kildare....

  • A question from me.....

    10. John Doyle 11. Frankie Dolan 12.

    13. 14. 15. Dessie Dolan

    Finish the forward line from the 3 counties mentioned from players over past 25 years!!!!

    Always preferred Frankie at 13 B.
    There was a lad who used play midfield/half forward for Westmeath on same team as Dessie who might have been a small bit older, think his name was Martin Flanagan?
    I used to dread him getting the ball in our league games with ye, he was so fast, strong and direct. He'd defo be in my team in half forward line.

    Actually tough to call after that! Donie Shine carried our attack for a long time and while lacking pace he always had a knack of finding space and could kick points for fun from either foot.
    I doubt many outside Ros would fully appreciate him but Cathal Cregg is another great speedy ball carrier and can score too.

    Than ya have John Heslin, Dermot Earley would have played in half forward line in his early Kildare days. J would know more of the Kildare lads but Kavanagh fella (Brian I think?) was super corner forward for few years under McGeeney.

    Your thread B, you call it!!

    Why did I think we were talking Longford? :confused:

  • Last question before you finish....

    What's your favourite biscuit?

    What beer would you want as your first post race beer following a big PB in a race?

    I’ll always harp back to one of my favourites, Scraggy Bay by Kinnegar, you can’t go wrong.

    Tried this last night off the back of that recommendation - great shout!

    I'm with B on this. Jaffa cake is a biscuit to me, a mighty fine one too. Just because cake is in the name doesn't lessen its biscuitness. I'd feel hard done by if it was my birthday and the cake that rocked up was a jaffa cake with a candle in it.


    Sorry for hijack

    I think I'm with P on this...It contains sponge(like in a trifle, which is cake) jelly & chocolate...I don't really consider it a biscuit.

    I'm only ball hopping... But...... Its not just the name... The ingredients and texture make it a cake.. Not a biscuit.... So B....... What's your favourite biscuit?!?

    Someones a bit touchy about their Jaffa cakes :p




  • Finally something in the A/R forum I feel knowledgeable enough to comment on :pac:

    Jaffa Cake - cake is in the name, so you think cake. But you never buy them or serve them as a cake. If you're mad enough to buy the manky things, you're never going to say to someone - would you like some cake - and hand them a Jaffa Cake. You'll sit down and have them with a nice mug of tae. They sit in the biscuit aisle in the supermarket. They sit in your biscuit tin. They may have Cake in the name, but they're treated as a biscuit.




  • – Jaffa cakes follow the same basic ingredients of a cake, including egg, flour, and sugar mixture which was aerated on cooking and was the same as a traditional sponge cake.
    – The ingredients mix to make a thin batter rather than the thicker dough expected for a biscuit texture.
    – Cakes are expected to be soft and friable while biscuits are supposed to be crispy and able to be snapped.
    – Jaffa cakes have the same soft texture of sponge cake.
    – A Jaffa cake will go hard when it’s stale, like a cake, while biscuits go soft




  • Thank you Mary Berry

    Yep it's a cake! If you dunk that in a cuppa sure you will just be drinking tea & cake in a mug:eek:

    But you'd still give it a go. You'd never dunk a victoria sponge. :D
