Only started watching Money Heist lately. Great show. You quickly forget you are even reading subtitles.
Tried the dubbed version first and couldn't get into it at all.
Still on Season 1 but loving it so far...
the dubbing is really annoying me and I've just finished Season 1. Denver's laugh... horrendous.

If it comes back this year, there'll be loads of games and players mad keen to play. How do you guarantee everyone plays? It'd be a good time to trial rolling subs.

Have many of you tried using Zoom to connect with your teams? Is putting a password on the meetings enough to keep it from being hacked, provided intended audience doesn't share the password?
Heard of terrible reports over the weekend for a nursery session.

Teachers no longer have to return before  30 june. They can just sign themselves fit for work on 1 july!
how much time do you think kids should be spending doing some of the school work that was sent home? I do a daily plan for my 2 last approx 1.5-2hours. They attend a bunscoil so I'd prefer them to focus more on the obair as gaeilge, and my other thing is to get them reading their Irish books out loud so they can keep practising their oral skills.

We've a young baby who the wife takes to swimming classes. An email the other week from them said the pool was ok as chlorine killed the virus.
The swimming lessons one of my lads goes to have been cancelled, we weren't sending him anyway. I guess it's a personal choice but is it worth the risk?

We've made the move to Heja for team communication, some nice functionality like schedule planner where parents can indicate if their child is going / not going. No more counting thumbs up on WhatsApp. Only thing I can see lacking is the ability to post videos.

Anybody recommend anywhere with a few self catering holiday homes together for July or August for a family holiday ?
Looking somewhere in Ireland

I've done a few of these over the past number of summers.  My favourite was probably the one we went to in Courtown, Wexford.  Plenty for kids to do in the area and a great base for exploring Wexford (such a fantastic county).  No issues with accommodation either...

I think this was the place

I've booked similar holidays in Terryglass (Tipp), Enniscrone (Sligo), Bunbeg (Donegal) and Lettermore (Galway).  They all offered something in their own right.

Courtown, great shout!

Looks like an ILA has been sorted and the main sticking point now is the DUP veto with POC powers or they're bringing the proposals back to Jamie and his muckers for their thoughts

Always struggled to find the GK kits for kids on the likes of ShootJersey or DHGate. Let us know if you find somewhere that does sell them for a reduced fee.

I like the even age groups up to June/July, give those players a competition then switch to odd ages for rest of year. It also brings Feile to a nice conclusion. That way each age get a chance playing in their 'stronger' year and the 18 year olds can play adult if they want.

Young players don't get enough games. That's one of the biggest issues.

Coaching under 10s last year and between go games fixtures midweek and a plethora of blitz's most weekends it actually was difficult to fit in training sessions to help develop skills.

I realise this is different to other age categories.
Thank god we are not the only coaches that felt this. Unreal amount of running around after our clubs U10s this year. Instead of weekly go games next year it may be better to host blitzes every 4 weeks and get a batch of clubs together and being more selective on which tournaments we attend.
