General discussion / UAP aka UFO's
« on: June 08, 2021, 10:09:36 PM »
What do the US know that they ain't telling the greater global public .... my belief is that it is US technology being tested under the cover of the UFO story that has existed for the last 80+ years ... whatever it is, technology that can descend from 80,000 feet to sea level in 1 second, and then hover horizontally before descending into the water is something to be interested in irrespective of who owns it ...

General discussion / Electric garage doors

First world problem and asking for a friend ...

How would one open an electric roller garage door from the outside when the only remote control for it has been lost?

Can’t even find the supplier details as they’re written on the box inside the garage.

Any advice that doesn’t involve a crowbar would be appreciated.

GAA Discussion / Croke Park Bag Policy
« on: August 29, 2019, 12:51:33 AM »
I know Croke Park has a policy regarding bringing a bag into the stadium.  How strictly is it enforced and do you think there’d be any issues with bringing a Cúl Camp sized backpack into the stadium?

The young fella is attending Sunday’s final with me, and we plan on having a bag to carry jackets (if they’re not needed), a few snacks etc.  Thanks in advance.

General discussion / Mobile Roaming Charges
« on: June 25, 2016, 12:39:52 PM »
Presently on holiday in Spain, using mobile as normal as at home due to new roaming caps since April 30th.  According to these new charges, cost for data can be no more that 0.05 per Mb more than your home package.  However, I'm still getting periodic texts from Vodafone saying that I've ran up another £5 roaming charge, now at a total of £30.  Not doing any excessive surfing, no videos, just usual stuff as I would at home.

Any ideas why Vodafone are still applying excessive roaming charges despite the newer rates?  Thanks in advance.

General discussion / Mary Boyle Case
« on: May 15, 2016, 11:38:25 PM »
A new documentary is due to air later this month relating to the investigation into missing 6 year old, Mary Boyle, who went missing during a visit to her Grandparents at Cashelard, near Ballyshannon almost 40 years ago.  The trailer for it is fascinating, a lot of people seem certain they know who is responsible ...

The comeback tour is set to roll into Ireland next year, will he be as big the second time around?  Watch out for the biggest promo campaign ever starting to ramp soon.

Sometimes late at night ... la la la la la la .....

General discussion / The Dubliners - end of an era.
« on: November 13, 2012, 04:22:06 PM »
It looks like Vicar Street on December 30th will be the last show for The Dubliners ... end of an era in many ways, how Ireland has changed since they first started off in 1962!

Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke, Ronnie Drew, Barney McKenna, John Sheahan (1963) ... in later years, Sean Cannon, Jim McCann, Eamonn Campbell, Paddy Reilly, Patsy Watchorn ...

General discussion / M50 eFlow Toll
« on: March 09, 2011, 09:54:12 AM »
Apparently, and I got this as second hand information, just over 20,000 northern reg cars are presently being sought for not paying the eFlow toll on the M50.

Has anyone ever been contacted by them or a debt colletion agency?  Or is this scare mongering in an attempt to get northerners to pay up?

I am of course a fully paid up member.
