Cryptofascists closing ranks.....
Our Government must be doing something right!
Quote from: Ball Hopper on Today at 04:57:46 AMWill headquarters fix quarter-finals outside of Croke Park, with Belfast and Cork getting one each every year?

Is there still VAT on sports tickets in the 6 North Eastern Counties?
Meanwhile stereotype "whingy moany soccer man" Damien Duff complaining about the Government giving money to Casement.
Donaldson's grudging statement was embarrassing to say the least.

As for the "British Bail out" - it was a LOAN (€800m?) at 8% Interest, later reduced to 6% and Isn't it now paid off?

Quote from: Derryman forever on February 20, 2024, 05:29:35 PMIt's not Leo's money.

It's not but at least his government has been generating surpluses to be in a position to do so. There's not one vote for Irish gov in 26 for any of this. This €800m is on top of €50m already signed off on for Magee, paying to keep North in Erasmus, €10m to fund nursing places, €200m contribution to EU peace fund, and of course a lot of work to keep North in EU customs union which provides free access to lucrative EU market for farmers and business while 26 is a net contributor not to mention letting EU raid our seas for the privilege. And I was and am a strong supporter of Dublin funding Casement as can be seen earlier in this thread.

I forgot that I should feel grateful that the Irish Nation should commit its resources to supporting the Irish Nation in its own country.

Lazy Unproductive Nordies getting free Money  could at least say thanks.

And your tax goes to.....?

Quote from: imtommygunn on February 15, 2024, 02:46:15 PMHas causeway not been "downgraded" a good bit? (Agree with your points mainly though)

Rates system needs overhauled big time. I think it's crippling businesses - small ones in particular. What's the choice here? Empty buildings and no rates or high rates? I think I hear ones saying it's between rates and VAT. (I would listen to a few of them but MIchael Deane does seem a bit full of it so not sure on his complaints...).
The Trust takes the hit on downgrading of services within a hospital but they can obviously leave the blame (lack of resources) at the door of the politicians. Maternity got axed in Causeway recently I believe. There are far too many "bits" of hospitals around the place. We need fewer and better.

Have any of you been to Craigavon hospital recently? It is in a total mess. It is completely overran with people. Now I know there are major NHS problems contributing but to close more out lying facilities and funnel them to Craigavon sounds like a complete disaster. 
I unfortunately have had to visit CAH  a few times recently due to an ongoing health issue, I don't recognise that description. Though it is true that it like other hospitals faces undue pressure  in A&E. But so too does the GP, the OFH GP  service and as for Dentists. I was lucky if you'd call it that to be red flagged. I got quick efficient and professional service. My wife on the other hand had to pay  for a scan for a non urgent  issue. this whether  we like it or not  is the future. The only way we can afford health care is through  a hybrid service mixing private  and  public that is properly funded so that anyone  who has no access to private is seen quickly  in the HSC. Many jobs no offer private health schemes to attract staff. Those on pensions and benefits will need free access. This is a challenge which will also require Bengoa to be implemented. It will require the dropping of  unsustainable positions by all political parties on free universal health care our  economy is beyond that.

Getting ready for the All Ireland Health system (after the Referendum of course)

Quote from: imtommygunn on February 18, 2024, 05:33:08 PMI don't think it's working for him but hard to see a change now.

Side have change their manager during Div 2 league campaign before. Limerick last year the most recent one last year. If it's a case that Glen has lost the dressing room then it's pointless carrying on with him in charge.
Ros used to do that regularly back in the Noughties e g Carr, Maughan.
We had 4 or 5 managers one of those years.

I see 62% of North(East)erners would like to rejoin the EU.
DUPUDA and Allister neanderthals most opposed to so doing of course.
