Kodi will be absolutely fine. It's great software.

It's the various illegal (and highly useful!) add ons that can come and go like the wind.

Haven't used my box in months, updated it to 16 there - what Add ons for tv/films are still working?

Cheers..

3 billboards outside ebbing missouri is a good watch.

Enjoyed it, lots of Oscar's enroute

Small enough budget I'd say. Solid acting makes it good. The mother is excellent.

Great cast & McDormand is excellent

well a lot of the 'casual GAA' clubs that used to use the parks to play have now folded
eg Park Rangers

Park Strangers amalgamated with Liffey Gaels

On the other hand, similar culchie clubs like Ranelagh Gaels, Na Gael Óga & Realt Dearg are going really well
While Ranelagh Gaels might be regarded as a "culchie club" before and  operating out of a pub they have a number of juvenile teams now. A lot of the properties in Ranelagh, Rathmines which were flats are now family homes and Ranelagh Gaels are trying to build a club around those families

Am aware of that and cited them as an example of a club who 10/15 years ago were playing a different team of culchie bangers every week with one adult team in the lower Junior divisions.

Adamstown is no more, Lucan have their pitches I believe.

Adamstown folded about nine years ago after a serious post game assault by one of their players on an opposition player

What real costs are there tho? Use of GAA Grounds (probably free), use of DCU facilities, facilitated by a few already contracted coaches / officials, the cost of a few Business class plane Tickets - probably freebies from Emirates who are involved as Sponsors.

Ethihad were GAA sponsors - not any longer.

They might have thrown out a couple of upgrades on the very QT, that was the height of it though.

If the international aspect is so important to the players, GAA brass and the journalists who continue to support this farce, you'd wonder why there were two men and a dog at the Shinty in Inverness last month, with one journalist and no GAA brass

That iptv I signed up for can be used via an app on my smart tv. Tried it out there last night and it works perfectly.
Don't even need to use an android box now as it will all be controlled via my TV smart remote. Very handy indeed.
Only works on Samsung and LG tvs apparently.

Have the same on my Samsung - it's great

As for the dragging down players. If you are ok with what went on at the end of the game, fine so be it. Many's the person have said you do what ever it takes to win so your opinion is not unique  but don't even try and dismiss it by comparing it to what Canavan did 10 years ago. It wasn't one player dragged down of the ball but a team effort using illegal means to slow down the kickout and prevent Clarke finding a man.

had the referred had seen 3 Dublin players pull down  mayo players and Costellos  action that would have been 4 black cards and Dublin would have finished with 11 possibly 12 players depending on how many subs they had used .
id have fancied mayo chances to have equalized ....

Are you forgetting what actually happened lads?

There was a number of incidents going on before the Clarke kick out, so McQuillan blew the whistle and stopped him kicking out. McQuillan picked out Costello (for the tee incident perhaps?) and gave him a yellow. He picked out Kilkenny for a drag down and gave him a black. He added on another nearly 2 minutes for this. So the Dublin cynicism in no shape worked, in fact it probably backfired with the added time and one less man on the pitch. 

Clarke then took the kick with Mayo having an extra man. But he made a balls of it. There were two men in the vicinty of Brogan, neither of whom were being fouled. Clarke kicked it over all their heads and out for a sideline! Calm head was required.

Everyone seems to have forgotten that Mayo adopted the same kick out disruption tactic in the first ten minutes - holding the full back line. Dragging players to the ground.

Myself and a friend signed up for it months ago. We had a look at the traffic management plan and parking and decided to give it a miss and do our long run in the park instead.

One narrow road in and one road out - jokeshop.
I didnt sign up for it as I bring the young fella to soccer training out that way every Saturday and I knew the traffic would be mental on those roads. Even at 3pm last Saturday when I was bringing him there was still hold ups.
Back to the Phoenix Park next year I'd say. Can't understand how they thought it would ever work up there.

I read that entries were capped at 8,000 in the park- why they thought they could accomodate more out there??
