I’d add referees too.

Slightly off topic, but refs and respect, well lack of it... Was at girls game last night , club game. The abuse from adults spectating towards the ref and opposition players (we're taking 12 / 13 / 14 year old girls) was off the charts. Both teams management behaviour towards the ref was almost as bad. It was embarrassing to listen to

Derry wans nearly as bad as Mayo ;D

Lets imagine this is a factory.

There are always problems, defects , failures. How to you improve throughput and reduce waste, you improve detection, reduce severity and reduce occurence. We have done that with vacinnes and track trace etc.

Then you have to look at bottlenecks-ICU.

Improve capacity-more beds, more staff.

Then we have no crisis until the next one. Then we start again

Straight from the PFMEA manual, refresher course recently?  ;D

Norm MacDonald - comedian and actor - 61

Cancer apparently.

He wasn’t for everyone, but I liked his Weekend Update stuff.

He was hilarious in the spoof Jeopardy sketches as Burt Reynolds, giving abuse to Will Ferrell’s Alex Trebec alongside a very obscene Sean Connery character

Did funny homosexual sketches. Not very PC but funny all the same

Parents of 3rd level students in Limerick paying 390 euro a week for hotel accommodation for their kids. What if you had 3 kids in college at once. Jaysus 1 would be bad. What is our political system / public servants at?

I'm sure things are bad this year but there was always an element of this. When I was a student in Dublin 40 years ago I had to stay in the youth hostel for the first week or two. Now that resulted from a place where the landlady withdrew at the last minute, but there was always a problem matching places to people.
What may be different now is that Belfast, Limerick etc are as bad as Dublin.

390 euro a week is savage for Limerick, no wonder some students are living in tents. Locals will be renting out a small plot in fields at this rate. System is broken when that happens, no incentive to better yourself.

Back in my undergrad days, 30 years ago, we were getting decent semi-detached houses in nice parts of south Dublin for around about that price per month. For the whole house.

There is a big craze in Ireland with horse boxes converted to coffee / tea take away joints. I can see an even bigger alternative use at this rate. Failing that one of those Japanese capsule hotel type things. Joking of course.

Why hotel accommodation? Is there no Halls? We paid £500 a month for expensive enough halls for the first year, down to £260 now that she's staying with friend in a student house, I'll have a year of paying for two soon, which isn't great  :o

No rooms in houses, bedsits to be found. Seems to be country wide. Wasnt like that in my day, accommodation was cheap.

Some points from the game Saturday

Mullen not Rob Hennelly was at fault for McShanes goal.
Aidan O Se is too big & has zero mobility, S&C a major issue here.
Horans decision making during a game is poor, otherwise he is good, but can't think on his feet.
Mayo players should lose the tabloid craving image, even the daft pink boots.
Some of their supporters now look daft counting their chickens before they hatch, free coffee etc.
Left footed free taker from the right hand side of the pitch.
Need to get someone to work on their heads for an All Ireland final.

Claire Byrne has it right when its comes to Brolly, turn the wee bollix off. Hes a disgrace to the wonderful men he played with. You would wonder how lads like Anthony Tohill, Sean Marty etc tolerated an eggit like him.

Donegal lad behind Hampsey making a show of himself and his county 😆

Nothing to do with the rest of us.

I expect his family will be mortified though.

What a gobshite.

Spoiled rotten brat with rich parents, could do with a good kick up the hole.

What did he do?

(I couldn’t watch any more)

Let's say he made it obvious he was from Donegal & hated Tyrone. Mayo headband with various finger gestures. If he was my own lad I bate him senseless. I live in Donegal & they have no love for Tyrone or Mayo after the way their supporters were treated by Mayo ones in the quarter final 2013.

Mayo got what they deserved, especially O Shea and Horan. When AOS done a Baywatch spread in the Sunday World and Horan letting it happen, you do these when you've a pocket full of medals. Them two men are all about themselves and not willing to make the sacrifices need to win Celt Crosses. Dave Hickey or Bernard Flynn a few years ago were not far wrong.

Alot of truth in that, Aido made a gobshite of himself. Lee Keegan on the other hand is a serious bit of stuff, feel sorry for him, hes a winner most of his team mates are losers

Can we get some of that Tyrone intensity, game management & spirit in Roscommon. Fair play to them by far the better team
