GAA Discussion / Re: Sigerson Cup 2018
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:12:20 PM »
there seems to be a virulent 'anti GAA strain ' in many of the post here.
the sigerson cup a valuable completion in its own right with the standard some where between the top county teams and middle order ones and like the railway cup of old give players from a weaker county a chance to play at a very high level.
as for the scholarships they are part and parcel of University life and are there to encourage excellent in all of student pursuits which it should do though out the college .
Ireland is in the halfpenny place when it comes to scholarship compared to most countries.
Previously the only option was for athletes to head to often 2nd rate US colleges where most were never heard of again, though their education benefited greatly , surely it a major plus to kepth our top guys at home

Prenty has a nice line in that peculiar strain of arrogance that runs through GAA officialdom.

Connacht Council CEO John Prenty has defended the decision to go ahead with Sunday's FBD dead rubber fixture between Galway and Roscommon at Tuam Stadium.

With both teams having already advanced to the competition's final, there has been rife criticism over this weekend's meeting going ahead but Mr Prenty has backed the Council's choice, stating: "you have to respect the integrity of the competition (and) can't be moving the goalposts mid-season."

"We've had several people telling us how to run the fixtures," Mr Prenty is quoted saying by The Irish Times.

"But last year, in the last round of the Allianz Football League, Galway played Kildare in a dead rubber, then played each other again in the final. No one said that should be called off.

"Roscommon are playing Cork in the last round of the league this year, and could meet each other again in the final. Will they call that off? And Galway and Roscommon have all used about three different teams, each week, so I'm sure they can find 15 players for Sunday."

He doesn't even have the basic facts straight, as the 2017 round 7 Division Two match he references wasn't even a dead rubber, if Galway had not won that match then Meath would have advanced to the final against Kildare. Given the palpable relief both on the pitch and in the stands when Galway finally fell over the line, it was far from a dead rubber.
Given that Munster made the final round adjustments to their pre season competitions, Prenty can't even say that there's no existing precedent for the type of change that both Galway and Roscommon want made for the match this Sunday.

Prenty is a slieveen of the highest order. Turns up on Connacht final day with an old tattered anorak, looking like something pulled through a hedge.
would you prefer him looking like a complete w**ker in a blazer?
at least keep the criticism to his incompetence and arrogance rather than his choice in fashion

France Gall also died recently. She was a French singer. One o the magazines said she was "emporte par le chagrin" which roughly means "taken away by dissatisfaction with life" . Probably the same for poor Dolores.
Actors and singers have a higher likelihood of dying compared to the general population.

Seafoid we all have an expectation of death,mainly because no one has yet survived indefinitely.
We do, Tony,  but we also have statistics.

I would love to see your statistics that prove actors and singers have a higher likelihood of dying than anyone else!   ;)

ive proven to be immortal so far

2. Eoin O’Donoghue - Belmullet(unlikely to play)will be very close esp before every one comes back
3. Ger Cafferkey - Ballina Stephenites(wont play) wont see too much action
4. Caolan Crowe - Garrymore(wont play)like odonohue and time for him to piss or get off the pot versatility could win him a place
5. Colm Boyle - Davitts(player) may see less action this year
6. Paddy Durcan - Castlebar Mitchels(Captain)(player)now a top player
7. James Stretton - Claremorris(wont play) probably not this year
8. Stephen Coen - Hollymount/Carramore(part player)agreed beeds to find one role to claim hopefully CHB
9. Danny Kirby - Castlebar Mitchels(wont play)moore of a part player
10. Fionn McDonagh - Westport(unlikey to play)) could well be this years find very impressive yesterday
11. Diarmuid O’Connor - Ballintubber(player )agreed
12. Conor O’Shea - Breaffy(unlikey to play )again need to find a spot quick may be a bed blocker
13. Neil Douglas - Castlebar Mitchels(unlikey to play)could bee too late for him got could a lot in possession but showed very well

ive always said that bailing out the banks was very much misunderstood by the nation who I don't think understood the effect of not bailing out the regular banks.
most savings would have been obliterated and loans next to impossible to get business would have fallen over night .
they were the real beneficiaries of the bail out not the owners (shareholder) who investment were decimated or the senior management who were all gotten rid of except boucher who did a heroic job and made sure BOI repaid the Government with intrest

General discussion / PSD2 - how is it going to be exploited
« on: January 12, 2018, 11:11:45 AM »
Every time there there is a major banking change the forst people to figure it out are faraudsters and charlatans so how are they going to use PSD2..

in case you don't know what it is
from indo
just seems rife for explotation to me..

The main elements of PSD2:

• With a customer's permission, a bank must allow an outside company authorised by regulators to take a payment directly from an account for goods and services.

• A bank must allow an outside firm to access transactions history from a customer's account for the purposes of aggregating information from several current and savings accounts into a single "dashboard".

• Tougher customer authentication of online payments will be introduced from the second half of 2019.

• Banks will have to spell out reasons for refusing an application for a new account, making it harder to hide behind generic concerns like money laundering.

• Banks are required to give refunds for unauthorised transactions.

• Outside payment firms must respond to complaints within 15 days.

• Firms authorised under PSD2 are not allowed to take deposits or grant loans like traditional banks.

• Most PSD2 firms that take data from a bank account will also come under a separate EU General Data Protection Regulation that comes into force in May to reinforce safeguards on personal data.

he will get as job if he is good enough his if refernces are good enough
there are thousands of qualified coaches in the UK and in Ireland  but to het a job you gotta be bringing something to the table.
his experience gives hime the right to present at the table which is huge in itself.
but his lack of soccer knowledge would be a disadvantage
having coached a version that all handling the ball with Donegal won't count for much

Mid west must be the mos frustrating  radion station in the country
kept promising up dates but instead keept us hanging playing  the worst music known to man,
but at least then Micheal D gave an excellent report un like seamus Duke who seemed to down the pub hearing rumours about how the match was going . he gave 3 different scorers for the last sligo goal .
what the frigging ppoint in a local radio station when they cant broadcast or at least give decent coverage to a game like that. .

I caught the full time update last night on Mayo/Leitrim. You might have had to wait and endure the cringy music but he practically told us what each lad had for breakfast. Very comprehensive reporting.

agreed the report on the mayo game was excellent but they practicly took a news flash for the Roscommon result with an interruption of a bslld sbout some one who left his mammy behind to work in London where he died penniless , don't worry they restarted again after THE  Dukes Confused reportage , it got even sadder toward the end

BTW Can we call time on the great country music revival now esp on TV what goes on at Adult dancing is their own business

like all science and m#nedicence you have a choice who to belive
on one hand there the vast bulk of medical opinion who have spent edecades studying and peer reviewing and having work peer review getting  vaccines passed as being fit for purpose . allof who studies are in the public domain to be analyzed and criticized by anyone   
and on the other you have a few outliers doctors and academics Quacks Ayurvedists,  Biofield therapist , Bioelectromagnetic therapist , shamens and reiki healers , Naturopaths , acupuncturists madmen.women,holistics , charlatans Holistics , homeopaths , and others who advocate cures that are  disproven, unproven, impossible to prove, or are excessively harmful in relation to their effect; and where the scientific consensus is that the therapy does not, or cannot, work because the known laws of nature are violated by its basic claims; or where it is considered so much worse than conventional treatment that it would be unethical to offer as treatment.

I know who I choose to belive

Woolly is a gobshite of the highest order. Has nothing objective to say and is a complete mercenary to boot.

Molloy is very good on OTB but Gilroy is an embarrassment. The less said about "Off the Ballbag" the better.

Ken Early is one of the best soccer analysts in Ireland and the UK.
did wooly play for laois at one point under Micko maybe? . I think he may have accidently mentioned it at one point in Every show so far

Lads, I think yer over-estimating how valuable being an assistant coach for a year on a worse than average Chinese soccer team is on a resume..

It would get him on a shortlist for Championship and below in England. A person worthy of consideration for interview.

If the best Lennon could do after winning all he could for years with Celtic was relegation-haunted Bolton in the Championship you’re off-target if you think his psychologist, with a single season of senior (assistant) coaching, is going to be on any Championship shortlists.

Jimmy is an absolutely stellar GAA coach, but some here are blinded to how low down the soccer totem pole he still is.
Mcguiness won one all irelland  title . in GAA terms alone that's far from stellar.
even mickey 'non consecutive' Harte did much better than that

Knowing Jim and his lovely wife and kids I'd say he was ONLY EVER going for one year to have it on his CV.
I was shocked when he first went as both of them are mad lovers of Donegal and the simple country life so I'd say he persuaded the wife it would be only for one year. Totally my own opinion folks, have no insight to the man any  more.

It was no double a great experience for him and the family and I'd say he made a tidy sum of money but sure he knows he can walk straight back into Sky with Peter and Rachel and he has it made already.
I'd say he will go back into GAA. I wonder will he be the next Tyrone manager.
 ::) ::) ::) ::)
He wants to spend more time with his family
what is he a Tory MP
