Compensated on what grounds? Can't see what loss they'd have suffered so can't see any need for compensation.

A public apology far more humiliating for these bastards.

He stated a falsehood about that competition/club that could have led to an attack on said club or its members. He hasn't apologised.
   
       

What's that got to do with you asking for the club to be compensated?
     
If the family or club feel they have been defamed by your man's comments( they were definitely incorrect and he still hasn't withdrawn them) , and that they have suffered some loss whether that is true potential commercial sponsorship or they feel that his comments led to an increased risk of physical attack on the family, club members or the physical infrastructure of the club itself, then they may have a case to receive suitable compensation.

They really have cranked up the anti GAA rhetoric.

They made a fool of themselves with the Coalisland underage tournament.

What happened?
Coalisland fianna have a tournament named after a former member (francie hughes) and unionists assumed it was Francis Hughes the hunger striker and immediately got their knickers in a twist. No apology as of yet.

Ok, thanks.

As long as the club gets the actual screen grabs they both should be asked to compensate the club. Only medicine for them

Rostrevor area...anything to do there?   Thanks

What age range? And what are you interested in Activities, sight seeing, restaurants ?

Kilbroney Park. Has lots on offer. One of the best Mountain bike trails in Ireland. Lots of walking/hiking options as well. Within the park itself there is the Narnia trail and kids play parks/tennis courts etc.

The East coast adventure centre offer lots of water based activities(based in Warrenpoint).

Saint Bronagh's bell, an cloch mor, Ross monument, narrow water castle, Greencastle, Saint Patrick's trail

You just missed the fiddlers green festival but still live music on in some of the pubs during the week. (I think Warrenpoint festival startung this weekend ) Quite a few restaurants as well to choose from and all pretty good.

Given the nice weather Cranfield nicest blue flag beach closest but you can still dip in Rostrevor at the pier or Warrenpoint.front shore.

It looks like the only thing that will work is going above the PSNI to a higher level such as the UK Govt.

Absolutely. The entire thing stinks.

Off to Malaga for 5 nights on Monday, well I hope to be if airport is grand!! Hearing Old town is a great spot to be for Tapas bars and the like, any other things recommend in Malaga to do? Other than relaxing and sampling the refreshments?

Was there for 3 days a few years ago, really enjoyed it. A few highlights were the Alcazaba up on the hill. Bit of a hike to get there but beautiful. The amphitheatre, although when we were there they were renovating it (it should definitely be completed by now! They held open air concerts/shows in the evening.
         The plaza del torros, loads of little tapas bars in and around that area and obviously the ring itself.
           The Picasso museum was ok.
Lots to see/do for a few days.
        Word of warning a few dodgy areas around the bull ring that are notorious for pick pocketing/mugging so take care/go in a group.

Thanks for that, looking to take her up that hill, probably do it myself some morning before she's up!! Think we are staying not to far from the bull ring so that should be on the list!

Out of pure nosieness, How did you get on in Malaga?

There are some but it's not in the same league as up North, if that's your point.
The North has more people struggling because it's in the UK and doesn't have a functioning economic model.

I think you underestimate the level of poverty in ROI as well. Unintentionally I hope. Demand for food banks in ROI increased 70% over covid. The North is not in a good position, so using it as a level of success for ROI isnít a smart idea.

Its his agenda though so he'll hardly move from it even if he has to use one himself

At the same time MR you have to admit that based on every economic metric going Northern Ireland is much poorer than the South and every region in GB as well.

You may be able to get a bottle of wine for £6 in Newtownabbey and the equivalent may be Ä9 in the south but you are remunerated accordingly.

Working class loyalists are getting shafted too, but they believe that working class nationalists are worse off so they take some form of comfort in that.

The oldest trick in the book.
No cost of living crisis in Co. Down. Was in a hotel in Newcastle over the weekend and it was £9.50 for a 125mL glass of white wine and a fiver for a small bottle of Peroni  :o

THe Slieve Donard no doubt. Big stuff!

His tribute to his father was completely genuine in my opinion and Iíd never heard it before.  It was for the day that was in it.  A few people on here just being cynical for the sake of it. Boring.

Galway particularly the keeper were very shaky at the back against Armagh. You just hope Kerry don't sneak a goal or 2 early on to end the contest.
       Galway definitely have the midfield and forward line to do the business. Just have that nagging worry about keeper and full back line.

https://lanternerouge.com.au/2022/07/21/vingegaard-does-the-fastest-hautacam-since-armstrong/

Vingegaard put 1 minute and 4 seconds into Pogačar. Riisí Hautacam record was unbreakable on a stage this hard even with modern equipment. Riis in the 1996 Tour did an estimated 6.88 w/kg for 34:41min up Hautacam on a unipuerto stage. Vingegaard still performed exceptionally well on the climb, doing an estimated 6.32 w/kg for 36:37min

Some analysis of that Hautacam stage. In the context of a very tough tour de france, The obvious question is;
     have all the modern advancements in terms of equipment/training/diet/ etc been great enough to come close to equaling the performace of Mr 60% back in the day?

That was a fantastic spectacle. Jonas is the man.
Most exciting tour I can remember

Only thing i can think make it any better would be a team tt  (as a spectacle). But otherwise agree 100% with you. I did not expect Jonas to crack Pog again yesterday. Obviously wout is a superhuman and an unbelievable afvantage for JV and Jonas but UAD had some super performances from their diminished team towards the end as well.
         The few bad accidents and covid retirements aside just a fantastic tour.

Looking some decorative stone - something that stops vehicles driving on grass verges - Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've seen people put larger stones around these sorts of areas to deter that.
       For the smaller decorative stone most builders yards would stock that or at least point you in right direction (quarry etc)
