Not as many options as south Donegal, but check out Buncrana as they are doing shuttles from there.
Weather dependent, we’ll prob go Sat/Sun.

General discussion / Re: Depression

There's a boy i now work with who i've known years and would now be very concerned about his mental health.

I think he is depressed but also thinks everyone is out to get him so he won't actually admit anything or get any help as he thinks doctors will put him on medication and his dad , who struggles too, has told him if he goes to a doctor they will "try and control him".

At the very least this thread is good because people are talking about it or admitting they have an issue but this fella won't at all :(
Would he talk to you about it?
We did a mental health first aid course a few weeks back in work and the advice was that even if you end up falling out with him in the short term, at least he will know you are not afraid to mention it.

A girl I work with just got married to an Irish hockey player who has been incredibly open about his personal struggle:

It's a good read.

Looking to get away with the other half for a week in the sun in the next month,thinking the obvious places such as Spain or Portugal,but Cyprus is popular in our searches online.been using Thomson,jet2 and easyJet and various other ones,any hidden gems or suggestions? Thomson etc is handy for coach transfers etc and that,would it be better to book flights and look for hotel separately on my own or am I going looking for trouble when packages are right in front of me? Be flying from Belfast and just wary of some of the reviews you see,better to get lowdown from a trusted gaaboard member 🤣🤣
We’re off to Lake Garda in Saturday, fly to Milan from Belfast. We’re heading up to the Dolomites for a couple of nights first for a bit of hiking, then down to the lake and staying in a beautiful hotel. Booked all ourselves. Try Irish News holidays, they have a FB Page amd most trips go from Belfast.

Anyone ever get a speeding ticket abroad? Got a fine sent in the post yesterday from May of last year in France. Lucky I can read French or I wouldn't have had a clue what it meant, they are looking 180E from me or 144E if I pay within 30 days. What do you reckon, ignore it?
Same here - got one one last June and only that I could make a stab at understanding it, I wouldn't have had a clue.  It came through my hire company.  I paid it as I use Avis a lot and didn't want to have a black mark through them, but I'm also just scared of Interpol chasing me.

Did you get it on the road between Chamonix and Geneva??

If Tyrone are to progress to the last 8 that was the perfect game to build momentum. Reminded me of Mayo last year v Derry.

Badly need forwards who know how to score though. McAliskey single-handedly drove us on until a few misses and the doubts reappeared in his game. Some of the wides from other players were like something you'd see from an Armagh or Derry player.

That game will stand to Colm Cavanagh...he actually improved as the game progressed. Sludden a well marked man this year.

"Some of the wides from other players were like something you'd see from an Armagh or Derry player. "

Priceless
Tyrone of course have world class forwards
Don’t think you’ve read too many of O’Neill’s posts...

Neither team have any real future in this years championship. Both very poor.
Not usually defeatist but maybe better for us to be out out of our misery sooner rather than later.

Making up for not playing advantage to let them equalise 2 mins earlier.

Temporary reprieve from the Owen Roes man.

Tyrone's answer to Syferus ::)

Had a laugh at that! You'll not see too many Tyrone flags around Lurgan (is that correct illdecide?)!!

Just on bonfires 😜

Believe it or not but there are a few Tyronies about the town and you get the odd flag here and there. I coach a minor team and one of the we hoors always wears his Tyrone top to training, there's a bit of cross breeding going on there. There's also a few hiding out in Warringstown too ;)
Wait til I get to Lurgan in August (sale agreed) - I'll spread the gospel of St Peter.

Who ever thought Peter Robinson would be suggesting periodic border polls?

I don't think he'd even vote for the DUP any more.

 When Columbanus was running the show in the 7th century the model was excellence. Nobody fucked with Columbanus.
So maybe the Columban order should take over the Catholic parishes in Ireland? They have Columbanus at the heart of their ethos. Bobbio - I will get there some day  :D

No, but you can assume they geared up heavily on the business - any mortgage should have been paid off a long time ago. Probably borrowed to buy property! It isn’t like they have done a whole lot recently to the property.i fear for the animals in the petting farm, and also for their suppliers who have probably not been paid for a while.

I am very tempted to look at a little last minute trip over after today's score so far (maybe 1 more to come on the 18th?).  Wentworth is a great day out, especially with that weather, so accessible from central London, and with Rory in contention.

Karen Bradley again reiterating today that there will be no cameras on the border. Are they planting the seeds for a customs partnership in the north only. Surely it would be 100% impossible for any technology to work without infrastructure. Even as light as cameras. The maxfac option would be impossible to police and I just can't see May agreeing to a UK wide customs partnership.

Over the DUP's dead body. They will exit the EU on the same terms as the rest of the mainland. At this stage it's either going to implode dramatically for the Tories rather like the Nazis at the end of WWII, or May will finally grow a pair, tell the loony right to f&ck off and try for the 'third way' as reported in today's RTE news.
May is lining it up for the third way - she'll paint it as the only way to protect the union (ref: her comments on the border poll).
