Without question the most Northern Irish recommendation for a pub you'll ever see. LOL

Joke used to be that you’d get a good head on your beer in the Hatfield. Last one to get topped there was INLA man Emmanuel Gargan who had his head blown off with a shotgun in an internal feud in 1987. A talented footballer in his youth who had been on trial with Arsenal, Gargan was on crutches at the time having been shot three times in a previous attack. Some of the Hatfield’s more hardcore drunks are reputed to have not fled the scene but used the opportunity to minesweep drinks that other customers had left behind.

Have actually drank in there a few years back after a day trip up from Dublin, no bother at all and good craic actually. We were in there for 8 or 9 hours as well. They have a few decent framed photos of some of the Ireland v NI matches from the 80s and 90s on the wall and I think a jersey or two. Bus load of Apprentice Boys came in at one point but just lots of good natured sl*gging and plenty of dark humour.

Very well looked after I have to say, but perhaps a different story if we were from the Falls instead of Dublin. Normal working class pub though and the sort of place you'll be fine if you don't go looking for trouble. They even played the Fields of Athenry for us LOL

You went on a day trip and spent 8 or nine hours in the same boozer???

He tried to leave several times, but he was drinking so much the bouncers kept throwing him back in!

Getting settled in one spot is a thing with old age Embarrassed Think we had a pint in Laverys beforehand and then Brennan's later on after we got out of the West Bank. Mind you, with some of the ladies in there we were probably safer on the Shankhill LOL

Given the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response to his return, and their favorable qualifying group, I'd give Northern Ireland an excellent chance to qualify for EURO 2024.

On checking their squad I would give them next to no chance of qualifying.

Should be an excellent testament to what a pragmatic manager can do with a limited group of players.

It's not as good a squad as before and I hope I'm wrong but N.I. will be well in the mix under O'Neill and their group fixtures schedule is favourable too. If they beat Finland at home in the second game, they'll already be in a great position in the group. They could have a decent lead in second place before their last two games away to Finland and home to Denmark.
