Have used PCP last 5 or 6 years. No complaints.  If going the PCP route, or HP from the car dealer,  check out your bank deal first.  My bank's rate on PCP is much better than the dealer's.
The brother in law talked a dealer into a good deal on the basis of what the dealer thought would be finance then the brother in law came back and bought it at the same price through his own finance. Dealer not too happy but still made the sale and I'm sure he didn't give it away.

Itís a pity alot of the German cars are now boring and fugly looking. They havenít really moved on with their designs. People like paying for the badge which is fair enough if thatís what they want but there isnít a BMW or Audi or VW Iíd buy right now as I think they all look bland.
Actually I would like the VW Arteon but thatís about it.
I know they are owned by German companies now but the Skodas and Seats are better looking cars now imo.
I liked the Superb Estate but nearly every one on the road now is a cop car which has put me right off them. I like the Volvo V90 Estate but no idea about reliability.

Watched The Father with Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, hard to describe the emotions this film puts you through, Hopkins is brilliant and Olivia Colman superb as his daughter.

Heard itís very good and Hopkins gives a masterclass but  I canít watch sad films in my old age now. Same with that show Afterlife with Ricky Gervais. Looks good but would put me on a complete downer.

I know what you me a Jim, but definitely give Afterlife a go. Uplifting as well as heartbreaking!
Thought that last series of Afterlife was average enough.

Antrim u-17 management team having to beg £100 per club in Antrim. Same old Antrim ?

Whatís the normal process for funding?
Run the County board like a business to generate sufficient income to cover all your overheads without taking it out of clubs.

Anyone here have thon booster jab? Got a text there telling to get it heard it leaves a brave few people in bad oul shape.
Felt shite for a full day after it. Was like a very bad hangover. Was grand though the next day.
Got that text from the HSE also but had already got my booster at that stage.

Yip same as that and most people I know have been the same. I had no side effects from the 1st two. A dirty hangover is the best description of it.
I was shivery for 3 or 4 days after the booster. Was moderna. I know a right few people who had the same reaction or a bit worse though still nothing to be actually concerned getting it. I had nothing after the first two jabs.
All saft Derry men?

I really didn't expect the easing of restrictions to be as rapid as has been done here north or south. I get in England as Boris is just trying to save his ass.

Six nations, national leagues etc be ok.
What will the anti-vaxxers moan about now? Some of them might find their days are a little empty.

A text? I don't know of a single person who felt anything more than a sore arm or bit of a sore head. I had zero after effects.

U20 team was physically pushed about by the more mature Donegal team. 6 starters yesterday were U18 so a bit on the light side yet for senior hurling. Donegal the better team on a wet Dunsilly pitch.

Remember this is not U20 v U20

This.

A county the size of Antrim really shouldn't be playing lads with three years left this level. Where's all the U19's and U20's that have went through the various development squads?

FWIW Donegal are a handy team full of good big hurlers so playing Antrim U20's in the middle of January on a heavy pitch and beating them isn't a surprise and if anything Antrim U20's could be better off for it.

Thought they done well to score what they did , they will have learnt more than Donegal

Down just about beat Donegal last night in the final, the bit I watched Donegal were 7 points to the good with 10 minutes to go and were good value for it.

Marky Fisher must have pulled Down out of a hole there with a smashing point from the sideline and a goal from a 20 metre free, hope the wee bollox gets fitter than he was last year

Down done well with 14 men. donegal played as if it was champo final. As i ahve said before this is no reflection of Donegal underage(even though they now have more clubs than Derry) as they had 7 outside men starting

White-Wexford
O'Donaghue-I think Galway
Gartland-Derry City
Gilmore-Tyrone
McGee-down the country
Ryan-Limerick
Flynn-Tipp

Few more to come in an don bench

Guards?

few teachers, couple northern lads with dodge addresses to play for DL clubs.

I believe McGee is local.  Throw in Coulter (Armagh) and Cleary (Offaly) who are also usually involved.

Gilmore plays for them as they are the closest club to him, probably doesn't need a dodgy address.
What age would Decky Coulter be? 35ish? Some player for Armagh.

Iíd a neighbour whoís house backed on to ours, this was a new build so no proper fence up. Came home from work (night shift) around 7.40am pulled the car into the drive, across the way I could look right into their kitchen, the wife (both Christians) was booting the shit outta her husband!

I was stuck in my car in shock! Out came the pan and she was whacking him! Was nuts! I eventually got out and made a lot of noise so that they would stop, she didnít bat an eyelid.
Maybe he got caught sneaking back in from a dirty stop out.
Indeed. Time he got a proper fence up.
;D

Itís both.

Men like looking at women. Men lust after women. Itís innate.

That doesnít mean that we canít teach boys that the primary role of women is NOT to be sexual objects for menís enjoyment, but that they ARE human beings first and foremost with the same agency and rights as men. And just because they might look attractive doesnít mean theyíre asking for it any more than a lad who dresses well and spends time keeping in shape is.
That last part about how a woman dresses always gets me and in fact I'm sure there have been lenient court judgements based on how a woman dresses. Bizarre that anyone thinks a short skirt is a green light for them to be attacked.

What happened the wee girl was awful and sorry for slightly off topic but the media (social & MSM) definitely drives or determines who gets mourned and who doesn't. Compare Aisling to the Mongolian lady stabbed in Dublin....another one is Sarah Everard to the Muslim girl in South East London. One all over the papers, the other hardly mentioned despite being weeks apart.

Yeah absolutely, occupation always gets mentioned in the first line of the story. Marketing executive Sarah Everard, Teacher Aisling Murphy etc. You donít really see that when itís someone unemployed or doing menial work murdered. Itís been like that for years now I suppose. There is certainly a hierarchy of victims
There is always a hierarchy when it comes to these cases. Age and looks play a part in the emotional response as well as colour, background, occupation. It is just human nature as all people make judgements.

Is there any information released as to how she died yet or any possible motive?

Nothing about motive, I suppose until they have someone charged thatís up in the air. She did by strangulation it seems
If you were a run of the mill pervert I can't imagine you'd take the risk to attack and strangle a young girl in a public space at 4pm. Seems strange to me.
