The Ballance Sheet #7 : A Year In Review (2013)


Wrapping up the year soon, folks, so I think a few words are in order about what’s gone down in 2013…


Had two favourites this year: with ‘Fabulous’ Nicky at CCW Revolution, back in May, and with Stevie Xavier, at WrestleZone’s Aberdeen Anarchy show in June. Two great guys, two incredibly enjoyable matches, and two amazing crowds. Definitely hope I get the chance to work with both guys again, down the line.

My other more enjoyable matches this year were with Jordan Devlin, Bam Katraz, and BT Gunn, amongst others. It’s been a good year, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some superb talent, and in front of some great audiences. Continue reading

Leinster House have been learning the rules of soccer after a visit from Irish team manager Giovanni Trapattoni to the Oireachtas Republic of Ireland Supporters’ Club. The newly formed club currently boasts 63 TD’s and senators who were all keen to learn from the Italian manager. Club secretary Senator John Gilroy said: “We had a chat about where the game is,” – usually on a pitch – “and what we can do as Oireachtas members to encourage the game.” Over-priced kits and generic memorabilia are traditional.

No Limit Wrestling Brings Bank Holiday Beatdown To Naas

Why The Moat?

by Jamie Colman – No Limit Wrestling promoter

I often get asked, “why do you always promote your main shows in the Moat Theatre in Naas?” Usually Dublin fans ask because they wonder why the shows aren’t in the Capital. Well, The Moat Theatre has become the ‘NLW Arena’ in a lot of ways.

The first No Limit Wrestling show in the Moat was way back in September 2006. Since then, we have returned there several times a year. We have a fan base there and new fans come all the time. It’s a theatre, so the production values we can offer are far superior to what we could offer in a GAA hall for example. The theatre is not over-sized. It offers an intimate setting, which makes the experience far better for both fan and performer.

Note to Dublin fans: Naas is only a short distance away from the ‘Big Smoke’. The N7 brings you directly into Naas in less than half an hour, and with more and more bus services nowadays, there’s no excuses.

Coming up on Monday 7th May, we present ‘Bank Holiday Beatdown’ from The Moat Theatre in Naas. This will be the second visit this year to the theatre. At the last show titled ‘New Year Bash’ in January, “Suicide Machine” Paddy Morrow became the NLW Champion. It haunted Morrow for years not becoming Champion. He missed every opportunity he had and people told him he didn’t “look” like a Heavyweight Champion and that while in the ring, his talent was probably the best in the country, chances are he could never become NLW Champion. He proved the critics wrong on January 22nd 2012 when he pinned Dunkan Disorderly for the Championship and the loyal fans in the Moat Theatre almost blew the roof off the place with applause. Morrow must defend the title on May 7th, and prove he isn’t just a fluke champion. With challengers lining up however, Paddy’s title reign could be short lived.

If you feel like checking out our Bank Holiday Beatdown show on Monday May 7th, call the Moat Box Office to book tickets (seating is reserved so early booking is advised to choose best seats) on 045-883030. Tickets are €12 and showtime is 3.00pm on the day.

For a feel of what our shows are like inside the Moat Theatre check out the highlights of our 5th Anniversary show last September.

Mayor of Naas will not offer help to Black Africans

Councillor Darren Scully, the mayor of Naas, Co Kildare, has stated that he will no longer be offering any assistance to the African residents of his community.
He made this decision, he says, after receiving a lot of aggression from representatives of the coloured community and has decided that he will no longer work with them. Scully was eager to stress that this view is his alone and does not reflect the views of Naas County Council as a whole. Any black African who came to him, he has stated, will be referred to another colleague.

Darren Scully with Enda Kenny

In an interview with radio station KFM, Mr Scully said the following;

“I have been met with aggressiveness and bad manners…I have also been met with the race card, (they say) ‘Oh yeah, you will help white people, but you don’t help black people’.

“So after a while I made a decision that I was just not going to take on representations from black Africans, that I would be very courteous to them and I would pass on their query to other public representatives.

“Everything I do as a councillor is for the general good…It saddens me that people would call me a racist, because I’m not.”
