We stayed in a lovely campsite with mobile homes etc in the Cote d'Azur near Frejus , about 1hr 15 from Nice. Really good facilities plus a kids club and the region is very interesting. We met a family from Cork who were also staying.

Smashing spot Frejus, La Baume, and the other one towards town we stayed at.. I’d go back tomorrow

We did La Baume last summer and loved it. Thinking about going back this year or next now that the child is a bit bigger and she could enjoy it more, she wasn't walking yet when we went.

Though I think I am black listed with Europcar at the minute after denting the car a few times in September on another trip  :-X

Can't recommend Frejus enough, great spot. After 3 years of going there we're trying Biarritz this summer, staying at a camp site again.

Stayed in one there also.. you’ve got to be lucky though as it’s got its own weather system which can give plenty rain!! Great spot though Barritz is lovely! 2 hour drive to Lourdes also if you want a laugh!

did ye drive?
how long was that from the ferry?

we flew each time and rented car, but there ones from Ireland on site that took car, I think he did it after getting off at Roscoff flat out, 14 odd hours!!!  they had a couple of stops at service stations and so but thats a hell of a drive

Why would anyone want to drive for 14hrs especially with weans in the car ?!

Well for some they stay the summer, they rent out or own a site.

If you work out the fuel, and extra 2/3 days of traveling, meals and so on, hiring a car makes much more sense, and to be honest I wouldnt be into the driving around as much, so relaxinf at the pool with a book and a drink, job done!

Regime change in Syria–good for Israel; good for the U.S.

—————————————————————————–

UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05794498 Date: 11/30/2015 RELEASE IN FULL

The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.

Negotiations to limit Iran’s nuclear program will not solve Israel’s security dilemma. Nor will they stop Iran from improving the crucial part of any nuclear weapons program — the capability to enrich uranium. At best, the talks between the world’s major powers and Iran that began in Istanbul this April and will continue in Baghdad in May will enable Israel to postpone by a few months a decision whether to launch an attack on Iran that could provoke a major Mideast war. Iran’s nuclear program and Syria’s civil war may seem unconnected, but they are. For Israeli leaders, the real threat from a nuclear-armed Iran is not the prospect of an insane Iranian leader launching an unprovoked Iranian nuclear attack on Israel that would lead to the annihilation of both countries.

What Israeli military leaders really worry about — but cannot talk about — is losing their nuclear monopoly. An Iranian nuclear weapons capability would not only end that nuclear monopoly but could also prompt other adversaries, like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, to go nuclear as well. The result would be a precarious nuclear balance in which Israel could not respond to provocations with conventional military strikes on Syria and Lebanon, as it can today. If Iran were to reach the threshold of a nuclear weapons state, Tehran would find it much easier to call on its allies in Syria and Hezbollah to strike Israel, knowing that its nuclear weapons would serve as a deterrent to Israel responding against Iran itself.

Back to Syria. It is the strategic relationship between Iran and the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria that makes it possible for Iran to undermine Israel’s security — not through a direct attack, which in the thirty years of hostility between Iran and Israel has never occurred, but through its proxies in Lebanon, like Hezbollah, that are sustained, armed and trained by Iran via Syria.

The end of the Assad regime would end this dangerous alliance. Israel’s leadership understands well why defeating Assad is now in its interests. Speaking on CNN’s Amanpour show last week, Defense Minister Ehud Barak argued that “the toppling down of Assad will be a major blow to the radical axis, major blow to Iran…. It’s the only kind of outpost of the Iranian influence in the Arab world…and it will weaken dramatically both Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza.”

Bringing down Assad would not only be a massive boon to Israel’s security, it would also ease Israel’s understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly. Then, Israel and the United States might be able to develop a common view of when the Iranian program is so dangerous that military action could be warranted.

Right now, it is the combination of Iran’s strategic alliance with Syria and the steady progress in Iran’s nuclear enrichment program that has led Israeli leaders to contemplate a surprise attack — if necessary over the objections of Washington. With Assad gone, and Iran no longer able to threaten Israel through its, proxies, it is possible that the United States and Israel can agree on red lines for when Iran’s program has crossed an unacceptable threshold. In short, the White House can ease the tension that has developed with Israel over Iran by doing the right thing in Syria.

The rebellion in Syria has now lasted more than a year. The opposition is not going away, nor is the regime going to accept a diplomatic solution from the outside. With his life and his family at risk, only the threat or use of force will change the Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s mind.

The Dodge was a different nightclub on the road down to Gaoth Dobhair GAA club in Magheragallon. It was Dodgy.

Long hair fellas with check shirts on and Lee jeans!

Towns that i have been in (or passed through) that I consider shitholes:
Portadown
Newry
Limavady
Coleraine
Newbuildings
Clough
Much of east Belfast
Newtownhamilton

Newry? WTF have you got against Newry?! Nice people, nice town centre, canal towpaths being done up...
Newry is one of these places where every road into and out of it is covered in litter. The canal is stinking! Banbridge is a nicer town.

+1 on limavady,was wondering how long it would take for a mention.
Limavady is an awful town, it’s more the sectarian element than anything else. f**kers have nothing better to do than paint roundabouts and put flags on anything that doesn’t move!

Always quite liked Newry. Plenty about it and it's a decent night out. Canal is stinkin though right enough. Full of shopping trolleys and bikes.

I've swam that canal while doing its Triathlons! never hit any trolleys!!

You must have caught it on a good day. Past it every day for almost 2 years going to work. Stinkin

Its done about half a mile before the shopping centre, and its a popular race

An All Ireland with a working Stormont that effectively still looks after and governs the 'wee six' , it has a budget and a payoff from Britain to appease the local, but must have a time frame (20 years) to bring everything into line.. selling something like that could make the ones on the fence buy into it

The mind can only boggle at someone whose reaction to this trial is to deny that there is a problem with men's behaviour yet simultaneously claim there is a problem with women's behaviour.

Give it up Syf/Sid, pick one username and go with it.

Again you have jumped on this rape culture thing, that actually doesn’t exist, in your strange mind it does, but it doesn’t. Now let it go.

 I’m sure there is a nice girl out there for you, but you’ll have bored them to death after your first conversation!

The case will change/ has changed

How rape trials are conducted in the South
How the IRFU  train younger players
The earning capacity of the 2 legends


A very significant legal case therefore

More than anything it should make men question their own behaviours. Not much of that happening in this thread, though.

Jesus! you’re one boring Cnut!

Why are you defensive?

Men and women should question their own behaviour ffs! Pure fantasy that men run around like cavemen, plenty of stupid women out there also, behaving in a manner that wouldn’t be the norm!

As for me being defensive, I’m not but I’m bored of the movements out that think they are making a difference, they aren’t.... if someone is a rapist then they need to go to jail via the court system, it’s the only one available and yeah it could be better..

I don’t know of anyone who thought they definitely raped that girl, and if the jury had have found them guilty, then job done, no one I spoke to about this case would have given it a second thought, nor started up a #ibelievethem campaign either.

So put it to bed and start a thread about the ex Armagh player who wanted to rape a taxi driver and rob him on the way home from a night out in Dundalk!

I would like you to explain how the woman did anything wrong, because you’re way out on an island of your own to be suggesting she or any other woman should be looking at their behaviour after an incident like this.

You’ve said some absolutely shocking things in this thread.

Read the post thicko! I didnt say this girl, I said women

You’re that far up your own arse that you don’t see it!!

Would agree with who said earlier about Plumbridge. I'd actually extend that to the Glenelly Valley as a whole.

Portstewart IMO tends to be underrated, nice tidy town, it benefits from being somewhat a student town even when the students aren't there, the Strand is a great beach and has little of the sectarian blight that is otherwise afflicted in nearby Coleraine & Portrush.

A little surprised that some parts of North Antrim haven't been mentioned, Cushendall and Waterfoot/Glenariff have looked like great spots any time I've gone through them.

Enniskillen has it's location going for it and again it's a tidy enough town, though for whatever reason I've always found the natives there a bit cold and unwelcoming, while the traffic in the town centre gets easily chocked at peak times.

Truthfully and honestly I've never been further south of Birr, nor have I ever been in Galway or Mayo with the exception of Charlestown, so I'll defer to those in the know about the southern half a lot better than I do.

Yes Cushendall Cushendun and Waterfoot have a lot going for them.. plenty of great scenery and walks.. Cushendall having some nice places to eat have a pint and a bet!! The natives are grand though a good crowd of Belfast ones have moved in part time  ;)
