#381

Tyreke.


#382

Morag


#383

Lehigh


#384

Lolz.

What sort of amateur place is that anyway? They have capitalised* the I the in lad called Sinnot so it reads SInnott.

*notice my great bit of punning.


#385

midfielder Fionn O’Riain Broin

Bad enough saddling the lad with that surname without giving him a rhyme-y first name.


#386

He has a twin brother called Cian. I kid you not.


#387

Should it be O’Riain O’Broin? and what kind of a name is Broin anyway?


#388

If he or his parents just went with Fionn Ryan Byrne or even Fionn Ryan / Fionn Byrne he wouldn’t sound like that much of a cunt


#389

What’s going to happen when the next generations of these types meet? Will we have quadruple barrel surnames?

Fionn O’Riain Brion Boyd Barrett Jnr


#390

Why are you asking @Fran?


#391

@Fran is the most feared and respected poster on the board. It’s always fascinating to have his views on any topic


#392

Hurling for Trinners was an experience. One of my little achievements there was to persuade the relevant folk to allow hurling training on the cricket pitch in College Green. They obviously got kicked out again since.

I think one the better lads who represented us briefly is the buddy that @Bandage occasionally mentions that has marked all the inter county heroes and may be a lapsed poster hereabouts.


#393

Whatever did happen to @McGeady1916?


#394

Cian Ó Riain Broin 's Fionn Ó Riain Broin.

It sounds like an Irish nursery rhyme. I have the tune to Báidín Fheilimí ringing in my ears.


#395

:scream:


#396

Plus 1.


#397

Paddy Cosgrave has give his child a composite surname. Cosmore.


#398

Certainly a case where less is Cosmore.


#399

Seriously though he should be punched very hard in the face. I hope Paddy has hassle every time he’s at the airport with the nipper

"Meet Cloud COSMORE. After much gentle cajoling the Irish state has agreed to a composite of Cosgrave and Dinsmore for our first son: Cloud Cosmore.

I never liked the idea of my kids taking my surname, as is tradition in much of the world, and Faye taking my surname as well. It feels like it implies some form of ownership over a woman from a bygone age. Men and women are equal.

That said I respect people’s right to choose to take their husbands surname, or of course to take their wife’s surname, or alternatively to create a double barrelled name. Anyway this is another option at least for your kids that does not require any legal juggling. Thought I’d share."

He managed to get a dig in at the Irish state too.
