Iím for Paris next week. Going by what Iím reading all covid checks have been lifted? Anyone been to france recently that can confirm this. Also any Paris experts out there that can help with an itinerary?

The graveyard is fantastic.

Any Graveyard or is there a specific one?

Watching the Agency on Netflix, they are a Parisian family who sell property in Paris very good and so much better than the other crap like Selling Sunset.

The solution is a pay rise. Get one or get a new job.
Somebody get this  fella elected quickly, COL sorted.

If you have another solution I am all ears.

Could get an extra job or work an extra day...

Have turned off 5live recently as its non stop doom and gloom, its as if they can find the most extreme view on the predictions they can find and run with it..

Few things, we can all do without a few things but not prepared to do without because its norm

Phones, data, takeaway's, treats, going to the pub, getting over priced coffee, brand labeled food, starters, non essential journeys or driving to local shop, holidays, turning the thermostat down, netflix and the rest, replica football tops (never had one)

I'm sure there is a hell of a lot more crap we could cut out and be a lot more healthier for it, but are you will to do without?

Some of the above might even bring down costs from the energy providers if we didn't use so much

This 100% there is no sacrifices being made in a lot of situations, not all but some. Me and the mrs would prob be considered middle of the road both work 5/6 days a week have a mortgage both have a car (one paid off one on finance) weíve seen our bills sky rocket weíve sat down and done a list of what we can and canít do without, take away coffees and making a lunch every day was something you wouldnít think too much about but Iíd say between us itís over £100 a week cut, we also used to go for something to eat every Sunday either breakfast or lunch cut that back to once a month sometimes twice another £60/70saved. Thatís just on things we did food wise.
Simple things like shopping in Lidl for most of our stuff. 

didnít upgrade her phone just got a PAYG sim cut another £50 a month. Gonna keep my car and not change it when itís paid off in 6 months be another 300 a month

Itís about making cuts where you can, nobodyís saying donít go on holiday etc, the small things are the 1s that add up i was shocked how much I was spending every day just grabbing coffee and lunch etc, make a lunch now and honestly makes no difference to me and itís saving me a fortune.

Make a bigger dinner, eat less and bring the afters into work!!

I'm snookered for next 3 years with kids at college so will have to just do without the nice things for a period, be grand after that.. Kitchen loan should be paid off also, I think, I really didn't ask for how long we got it for but assume over 4/5 years

Kerry hurling final was last Sunday.  It was live on TG4.

Because it was on mid-August and live, it got great exposure for Kerry hurling.

Better that than being on in tandem with 6 other county finals on the same day in mid-September and getting no media coverage.

Depends when they're expected to be playing in the Munster championship I'd have thought.

Not good to be winning a county final and then sitting doing nothing for 6 weeks or more for the next competitive game irrespective of the coverage you get.

Do they the Kerry champions play at intermediate level when they play Munster club hurling?

They might do, but the Munster intermediate championship doesn't start till November, that's over two months away.

Kerry and Kilkenny are probably similar in that they play off the 'weaker' codes early to free it up for larger participated codes. which you can see the logic in it, teams can reset and there will be plenty teams to get proper challenge games in as other counties will want to have competitive  games also leading up to their own championships.

Any manager of a county championship winning team will have that arranged

Are there many Kilcoo players that would make much difference at county level, even down at Div 3 standard? Club & County football are like 2 different games now. Kilcoo always struck me as a team who had good to very good club footballers in every position rather than having a few players who would set the county scene alight.

Whether he brings Kilcoo players in or not isn't the thing that strikes me, it will be if he brings in that work ethic, the style of play, the annoyance of their on the edge tackling (in a good way) that that team brought to big games, the system they work with will only work if they all buy into it..

It has taken Kilcoo a few years to benefit from that game plan, will intercounty mangers get the same?

So who gets to decide? the 1% who generate the most money? Bit strange seafoid, I thought you were always against the 1% in life..

I suppose everyone has a price

Explain to me how club schedules are all over the place? We are in the throws of football and hurling championships here in Antrim at all levels, games being streamed across all, gates are up as games are spread over the weekend allowing for folk to watch whatever grade they like..

2 aspects from today's OTB

Ann Downey of KK camogie said players don't get enough time to prepare for the all Ireland Final and that she would prefer September finals
Because the season is shorter the GAA's ad income is going to be lower

So any news from the club players? Or are you just going to quote county players? the 1%

So onwards and upwards to you

I have a basket over the fireplace that has all the stuff that I need to know where it is. Headphones, charger, sunglasses, remotes for stuff that only I use.   Works pretty well.

Have you not got a man drawer? What is wrong with people?

Why anyone would expect a small full back to be able to fend off a centre forward meeting a header in the full, thatís beyond me.

It was a very good cross to a very good header of the ball. Not poor defending.

He never even tried, he ducked and gave your man a wee platform to hold his jump on, which was nice of him.

Probably didn't want to wreck his hair, looks lovely (says bald man) in fairness

My club not happy with this at all. We have at least 6 players now have to get off work. Why not just move the games to Sunday?

Has your club spoken with the opposition to see about a mutual agreeable time?

If they are reading you are struggling they'll hardly want to move it ;)
