Just googled it, thereís 50 quid difference if youíve less than 35 years working and contributing, or if youíve never worked but claimed benefits youíll get a state pension

Iím minimum (currently) 16 years away from that! (Good grief)

Need a plan!!

Good to see the Thatcherites out in force.

The issue is being able to clearly distinguish between those that are genuinely unable to work, and those who are milking the system.  It's probably the same a in a lot of walks of life. There will always be the bluffers and scammers.

Think youíll see I didnít mention those unable to work, just those that donít work, and if there are bluffers that are working they are still earning and paying into the system.

My personal view is it should be linked to work history & you shouldnt get the same for sitting on your arse for years, without paying in to the system

This is what Iím getting at, itís not tiered, someone whoís worked 50 years and someone whoís worked nowt get the same?

Poor doctors have to contribute about 9% but neglect to mention the employer (tax payer) is chipping in 20-30% on top of that.

They don't get that 20-30% though. It goes into a communal pot to pay everyone who works for HSCNI.  They get 1/54(?) of each years salary every year of retirement.

Should someone with a public job pension get a state pension?

There are boys who haven't got game time not playing for clubs but Lynch gets gametime and plays with his club is the thing which stands out... If he didn't then it wouldn't look like any grey areas... Just seems a bit odd.

Could it be that if you are not starting then the rule is you can play for your club and if you are starting then you can't play?

Guidelines would have to be whatever agreement exists between management and players. There should be no grey areas. The players would know what they're signing up to, full commitment to county until the season is over, and availability to play for club by permission from management on a case by case basis. The clubs get players back for second half of league and the full championship.

The grey areas are the bits we don't know so a lot of assuming and so on which can't help with gossiping lol

they were always decent at u21 too. Not a new problem for  them.

Been over 12 years since they won last so transition from minor to the next level seems lately to be the problem for Galway

I wouldn't begrudge  Clare. They were very good yesterday.
 Galway  won All-Ireland minor titles in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Clare have a total of 2.
The priority for Galway now is fixing the minor to senior transition mechanism.

But that's the reason for the under 20 level, that step up to senior is there, but a small enough percentage of that Galway team will progress to senior. Galway traditionally very strong at minor, what's their record at the old under21 or recent under 20?

Did anyone spot Antrim doing un-Antrim things today?

Winning and attacking football?
