Rugby hero Jack Kyle was a class act
I HAD the privilege of being at Lansdowne Road when the great Jack Kyle played his final game for Ireland. He was carried shoulder high by his team-mates having played a record 46 times. Nowadays this would probably equate to over 100 caps.
The 'conscience clause' to be proposed in a Private Member's Bill
The sincerely held views of Christians are as important to them as a gay person's views are to them. Should be live and let live.
No sense in cuts for bus services
I would like to express concern regarding the proposed bus cuts (News, Dec 5). I use the 168/154 buses to go to and from Antrim Area Hospital. Many rely on buses, so where is the sense in the cuts?
Christian voters left in a quandary
That God's will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven, is a repeated petition by Christians saying the Lord's Prayer.
Ask yourself: why does Sinn Fein back corporation tax cut?
Richard Ramsey, Ulster Bank economist, has a more balanced opinion than that given by many local politicians.
The definition of 'marriage'
I think we made a mistake when we coined the word "marriage" to describe the lifelong conjugal relationship between a man and a woman. We should have called it "man-womanage".
Return tickets for OAPs would help save money
With regard to JC Wilson's attack on bus passes, the best way to save money would be to allow Translink to issue return tickets.
Senior citizens vote, so hands off free travel passes
It is hoped that the Stormont Executive will support the commitment of DRD Minister Danny Kennedy to maintain concessionary travel for senior citizens.
As for Jeremy Paxman, any publicity is good publicity
I visited Belfast yesterday for the first time, coincidentally on the day that your newspaper carried a banner headline regarding the comments made by Jeremy Paxman (December 3).
Corporation tax editorial naive
I found your editorial on corporation tax (DebateNI, December 4) naive. If it were likely to produce the "rebalancing" of our economy, why then doesn't George Osborne lower the rate across the UK?
Put Barnardo's in the picture
This week Barnardo's shops across Northern Ireland are helping launch an innovative Instagram Christmas competition.
Arguments over Casement Park stadium legal bid not 'tiresome'
THIS is in reply to Declan Bogue's piece (Sport, November 19) regarding the Mooreland and Owenvarragh Residents' Association (Mora) and our judicial review of the planning permission for a new 38,000-capacity stadium at Casement Park.
Ashers Bakery should have clear conscience over cake row
THE recent case that the Equality Commission has felt necessary to take against Ashers Bakery compels me to write this letter.
DUP left out in the cold by Tories
I WAS surprised that, in last week's Autumn Statement, the Conservative Government gave the DUP a slap in the face by failing to devolve decisions about corporation tax to Stormont.
Focus must be set on deficit reduction plans
THE local focus on the Chancellor's Autumn Statement was all about the potential transfer of corporation tax powers (News, December 4).
Call for CCTV in slaughterhouses
THE campaign for mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses received celebrity backing last week, with Ricky Gervais sharing links to an important campaign petition on the government's website.
George Osborne: corporation tax cut depends on Stormont talks outcome
Corporation tax is the last thing the boys on the hill should be getting until they can learn the skill of future social and commercial infrastructure management.
Enniskillen schools decision clearly political
I WISH to express my utter disgust at the Minister of Education and DENI in regard to their decision to close two fine, sustainable grammar schools in Enniskillen - Portora Royal and Enniskillen Collegiate.
Our shame over Titanic has only recently subsided
ADMITTEDLY, over the past couple of years (and especially around the centenary of the sinking), Belfast has tried to stress its historical links with Titanic in order to attract more tourists.
