I hope I live to see the day Ros CB will be applying for planning for a Centre! where teams might be able to train.....

Building two at the same time is largesse we don't need.  Remember there is also Abbotstown

Hollystown GC is at least closed. The Spawell has bars, restaurant, golf, astro, tennis and a load of smaller business like hairdressers. All will be evicted and at leat 100 jobs gone. For a third cluster.

Jobs gone is bollix. People get their hair cut, if not in one place than somewhere else. Likewise with drinking.

That attitude will go down very well with the locals who are losing amenities

If only they'd sit on their hands whinging the various Dublin Councils would give them loads of free stuff....

Not sure I follow, but both NAMA sales to the DCB for our new 'clusters' were, ahem, intersting.

Dublin GAA granted planning permission for €6.6million centre of excellence

To match the cluster in the Spawell they are building.

How did we survive without these clusters?

Is it time for Kenny to go?
To be replaced by whom? A new manager would scarcely do any better, unless they revert to hoofball and pack the forward line with 6ft+ beanpoles. 'Climate change' has reduced the British mercenaries(*), on whom we relied so much for the last 40 years, to a trickle. It will take a good number of iterations before our home-produced players will be good enough to compete meaningfully with the continent's best.

* To think Kane, Grealish and Rice could all be playing for us.
If we were consistently good and far from mediocrity maybe they would be.
Or if we’d capped Grealish and Rice when we had the chance lol
Rice has 4 caps.Grealish refused a callup

Musk & Twitter ownership don't seem a good fit. He'll likely ruin it first with kneejerk tinkering and then bankrupt it.

Put yer money where your mouth is...

Turns out he tried to get out of the commitments he made with all the bumming and blowing he did a few months ago, but whatever he signed up to, the then owners of Twitter won in court and he had to honour those obligations.

Allegedly he'll be paying almost $7B per year on interest alone on the loan he took out to buy Twitter.

As I've said before, a snake oil salesman who got lucky on Paypal, but looks like he's fúcked it up.

Greed and ego are a bad combination especially when you've no one around you to tell you to wise the fúck up..

He paid $44b for it. It's doubtful if it is worth $44m.
When you cannot see your own limitations it is amazing where people can get to in life.
That's why I don't understand how something that is hemorrhaging money by all accounts can be worth 44 billion
Surely something as big as twitter wouldn’t take a whole pile to turn a round and make profitable?
It will end up like those mobile games that used to come out and be really addictive and generating high traffic, then the owner monetises it by putting ads in it and people just stop playing it

Elon has missed the point of twitter. He wants a "free for all" but if those who put up the interesting content (for me that's politicians, journalists and scientists, sports content etc etc but will vary from person to person) and allows all the shíte of the day on it unabated, then the companies currently advertising on the platform may have rethinks and those who put value content on will move away, not needing the hassle that comes with the lunatics with a free reign.

Is advertising revenue that big for Twitter. I think he's trying to get the $8 to finally monetise it.
I do agree that it will become a cesspit.

Nice new slag though, "your Da pays for a blue tick on twitter" Up there with "Your Da sell Avon"

How else did it generate income before Elon took over?

He's trying to monetise it in more ways than selling a blue tick for $8 per month, he's trying to sell off your data hence why his CFO and a few high up legal types resigned lately.

It didn't need to find the $44bn the galoot borrowed to buy it. Twitter was famously famous for never making real money.

I cannot advise strongly enough not to give twitter your credit card details at the moment

I agree that the reasons for this inflation spike are not borne out of wage increases but that doesn't matter.  MR2 cited increasing wages as a problem going forward and he's right.  If wages start to increase excessively then it will lead to a bigger problem as it will lead to further inflation for longer.  It's called the wage-price spiral.
Has that theory not been entirely disproven?

What upgrades will Croker need?

Permanent seating on tbe Hill and a fanzone area at the Cusack apparently
Time to tell them to fck right off for themselves!!

Croker have wanted to seat the Hill for decades. This will be how they force it through.

Soccer lads already on Twitter as the penny has dropped. The only infrastructure that will be added around a soccer tournament will be to Croke Oark and most GAA fans don't want it.

I thought there were standing terraces to be trialled in the Premiership, no?

This isn't the premiership

Well I'd be surprised that the Premiership were trialling anything like that without tacit approval from UEFA and FIFA or is that UK Gov requirements post Hillsborough.
Germany has had safe terracing for years. I'm sure it has approval of sorts but those areas are seated for European games

I don't know why LOI fans consistently attack GAA when they have their own much worse violence issues.

Plus lots of people support LOI and GAA.

Is it worse though?

Without a doubt.

By your own admission, Gardai made a mistake in asking two groups of opposing fans to walk past each other  ;D - because of the risk of violence.

When said violence duly occurred - you all but blamed the Guards - making yourself exactly the person who (a few posts ago) you said didn't exist in soccer  ::)

Much as you'd love to will it into existence, the GAA simply doesn't have this kind of issue

I never said 'it' doesn't exist in soccer. I said violence in that sport also exists but manifests itself differently. The GAA has a different kind of issue.

Read what I said again

Read what I said. Soccer has a problem, same nonsense in the same spot last year. But that doesn't mean the GAA doesn't have a problem. In fact, why are we even talking about soccer?
Because fellas on here who bury their heads in the sand and turn a blind eye when it comes to GAA violence like to get all smug about it when it happens in Soccer.
The oh look what the soccer crowd are at again brigade.

BB2 was totally happy to make the comparisons when the GAA had a violent incident

Only when the discussions took a turn and we began talking about the groundball 'supporters' being unable to walk past each other without a riot - THEN the discussion became off limits

You're fooling nobody lads

I didn't make any comparisons untill after the FAI cup final. Others brought that up.

Any objection to my actual point? Both sports have a problem. Soccer deals with it more robustly than we do.
