Posts Tagged ‘Dublin Events’

Its not too often you get posts on here lauding non-LOI football. If anything, the content of our football related articles are overtly critical (and rightly so) of a nation of barstoolers who do their best to ignore teams on their own island. Whoso could begrudge the three of us so for having an interest in a foreign team, not across the narrow strip of water that divides us from “the mainland” but across the expanse of Europe to Hamburg and their “second” team, St. Pauli.

The thing is with St. Pauli, you aren’t just lending your support to an adopted team that have nothing got to to with you. You are adopting a code of beliefs. St. Pauli stand for everything we on CHTM! stand for – We are vehemently anti-sexist, anti-racist and anti-fascist. If you haven’t gotten that from our posts hither to now well… now you know. Two out of the three of us have made it to games this season and have made some great contacts and friends across there, some closer than others and for different reasons.

Dont expect this madness, just something close.

So, with us having good friends in the St. Pauli Supporters Club, Dublin, we have found out that their youth team is partaking in an invitational tournament at the bequest of Kevin’s Boys, programme as follows:



11.00am           Group 1                       St Kevins Boys Club      v   Brondby  I F
12.30pm          Group 2                       West Bromwich Albion  v  St Pauli
5.00pm            Group 1                       Brondby I F                     Sunderland  AFC
6.30pm            Group 2                       St Pauli                              v  Arsenal F C


11.00am           Group 1                       St Kevins Boys Club       v        Sunderland AFC
12.30pm          Group 2                       Arsenal F C                     v       West Bromwich Albion
5.00pm            Semi Final                    Winner Group 1              v     Runner Up Group 2
6.30pm            Semi Final                    Winner Group 2              v    Runner Up Group 1


11.00am           5th & 6th Place Play Off                3rd place Group 1   v  3rd place Group 2
12.30pm          3rd & 4th Place Play Off            Beaten semi finalists 1 v Beaten semi finalists 2
1.45pm            Exhibition game by St Kevins Boys Under 6 Development Squad (15 mins)


KICK OFF 2.15pm.


The plan is for us to make it out to the WBA vs. St. Pauli game on Friday morning, as myself and DFallon are heading off to (albeit) separate LOI games Friday afternoon, him to Derry, myself to Sligo and JayCarax off to the Good Friday Wicklow Wander.

Don’t forget though, before all that madness, there is the monthly Sounds of Resistance gig in O’Byrnes on Capel / Bolton Street that you can most likely find the three of us at; look for the lads in the corner sipping Guinness and looking shifty.

Come to this!

Next Saturday, Murray's Bar, O'Connell Street

Coinciding with the implosion of Fianna Fáil and the inevitable trundling in of our new Fianna Gael overlords is a great weekend of music in Murray’s Bar on O’Connell Street. It looks set to be a busy weekend for us here at CHTM! too, with our involvement in both gigs. JayCarax and DFallon are spinning the decks on Friday night at the ever excellent Punky Reggae Party while I’ll be hitting the stage at some point on the Saturday night at the above gig; a thumping line-up containing Dublin crust legends Easpa Measa, Droppin’ Bombs and newbies Dirge. Following the bands will be Punky Reggae DJs until 2.30 AM. The gig is a joint fundraiser for the IPSC, AFA and the St. Pauli Supporters Club Dublin. 
Doors @ 9pm, first band @ 10pm.
Entrance – €8 waged / €5 unwaged.
