There is a case for people in big stadia, there should be no TV games allowed in pubs. They have it arseways.
Are you joking? No games in pubs?

No, I am not joking.

Looking like Executive is going to allow return to live music soon.

Any word of actually being allowed to go to the bar or of nightclubs opening?

Bars are open?
I mean get served/sit at the bar as opposed to table service only.

Your commute is two hours each way?
I live in Newbridge and work in Ballsbridge - leave the house at 7 to drive to the railway station - get 7.20 train to Grand Canal Dock - get into work about 08:40. Leave at 5 and get home at 6:50 so essentially 12 hours away from home.
I'd say you're happy enough wfh!

In the post analysis in the years ahead it will be proven restrictions went on too long , absolute farce to have restrictions still in place when the elderly and vulnerable are vaccinated.  Beginning of August in Ireland everything should be opened up but they wont for reasons that dont make sense .
Absolutely. No reason for anyone under 70 (without underlying conditions)to be worried and everyone else has or should have jab by now.

Meath 100/1 is the standout price.
Shows how the Dublin project has destroyed Leinster
football.
Meath used to be a marquee side.

I'll give you them at 100/1 for Leinster!

School years make far more sense. Think Armagh did it couple of years ago. 12.5, 14.5 etc.

Mayo have not beaten Dublin in League or Championship since 2012. The Mayo/Dublin rivalry was a myth. It was a procession of Dublin dominance.  ;)
Most people don't pay attention. Because recent finals were reasonably close they think the game is fine.
Because Mayo had a very good team from 2015 on  it looked as though the processes were solid.
But once that team ran out of time there wasn't going to be a replacement anywhere. There can't be because the
normal progression from the pack to Sam doesn't work any more. Counties would get to a semi, then lose a final and
have a good chance of winning the year after. Time and experience. Not any more.

Tyrone got to the final in 2018 but were hammered. They didn't make any progress.
Kerry didn't even get out of Munster last year
Meath have been building a team for a while and lost the Leinster final by 22 points.
The psychology of the competing teams is a huge issue. Dublin is a juggernaut that destroys everything in its path.

The RTE analysts with the exception of Spillane looked into the void last November,.

Tyrone lost final by 6. Is 6 points considering a hammering now??
It may as well have been 66

Monaghan boys love to attack the idea of Croke Park as a neutral venue but they've been getting home advantage in Ulster finals for the longest time. It's one rule for them and another for Dublin.
shur it's not too often them Monaghan boys get to an Ulster final.

Antrim having to travel to Waterford for a playoff game on a Sunday at 12.15 during a pandemic when last year Waterford refused to travel to Antrim for a league game and the game had to be played in Dundalk because of Covid concerns about the North .
That is a joke.

Anyone believing these rumours with Ronaldo?

Sounds to me like a bit of a smoke screen already for a challenging window. Any club would take him without hesitation with his record, but just doesn't ring true for me.
If we didn't have Cavani then maybe. At his age, on his wages it doesn't make sense. Having said all that, I'd absolutely love to have him!

Detroit is starting to see the light too.

Ford recently announced an electric version of the F150 pick-up truck. Think the F150 is the best selling vehicle in the states.

It will take a while before the infrastructure is in place to allow people to use it for work or long-haul purposes, but its a start.
The UK is going to spend £300m installing 1,800 fast chargers.
The US is obviously much bigger. The rollout of Electric car infrastructure will provide a lot of employment.
how long would it take to charge a big suv or an f250 ?  most people driving big distance are driving big vehicles  to carry their baggage etc, it's cheaper to fly for lone travelers  . Also most people who own their home install a charger at their house if they need a charger.
I see a charging area in local car park with about 10 stations and it is empty most of the time
Electric cars will only become mainstream when you can charge up in half an hour tops and it will last all week. Until then, diesel all the way.
