I see Monaghan beat Kerry as well.

Armagh got robbed in Sligo last year, absolutely robbed, I would love to see Armagh pound on ye but ya never know.

My prediction for this year, Armagh 2-17 Sligo 0-9.

I will go for the same score. Just a hunch.

Will any bookie take us on, I wonder?

We’ve Armagh co. Board to thank for the coverage not really the bbc. If this match was in Omagh or newry the cameras wouldn’t be there for it. It’s the Armagh tv gig which we’ve to thank for the coverage.

Wobbler is somewhat sceptical of the sustainability of volunteer input to such operations, but perhaps the GAA providing the coverage is one way forward for smaller games.

Meath are not the Meath of old and probably due to a lack of underage success for years and club football that has only improved recently. Basically Meath have to walk before they can run. Meaths aims should be to reach the super 8s and try to gain promotion to div one this spring. If the rest of the Meath players attitude was like O Rourkes "this is not worth it" then Meath will only stay where they are and make no progress at all.

The question remains does the toil match the reward? I think in every county bar Dublin the answer is a resounding no. Even the players involved now probably regularly ask themselves if what the IC game has become is worth it.

Is the toil less for a Dublin  player ??

Apart from the travel, no. But an AI medal might make it worth it.

The diesel dippers out in force today.  Spotted them on the Armagh-Newry road and Armagh-Portadown road.  They were pulling in commercial vehicles, larger SUVs and pickups.

It's been a while since I have seen them on the roads.

People should go off dodgy diesel for Lent.

The majority of them do. The majority of unionist politicians do. But there is a powerful minority of voters that believe that they are as British as Finchley ( which they are) and that the people of Finchley care a jot about them (which they don't)

Finchley is actually in Britain, its people are intrinsically British and so the people in NI are not British in that way, however much they try to convince themselves.

General discussion / Re: Broadband
« on: February 15, 2018, 02:03:51 PM »
looking some advice - I purchased a mobile broadband router (O2) recently and as i had thought I am getting speeds 10x my BT broadband, only issue is the range within the house. Have any of you used a mobile router in a home/workplace that you could recommend?

If the mobile router has an ethernet connection one possibility is a separate wireless hub, i.e get the best device for picking up the mobile signal and the best for wireless in the house and connect them together. Also you may be able to move the mobile device to somewhere which improves the wifi coverage e.g. roofspace.

Not brainwashed but curious.Young primary kids being terrified yes,but a guy at grammar school well into his teens going out of his way to take phone calls from his abuser (and money of course) every Saturday and then allowing him to resume his nefarious activities on his return stretches credulity.

When I was at grammar school a lot of the teachers were ridiculed by the lads,including priests,there was a couple of science teachers,disciplinarians,that you wouldn't have messed with, but lads generally would have stood up for themselves and not allowed anyone to manipulate them

This class of person was careful not to abuse one of" the lads generally", but rather to pick on someone with some vulnerabilities.

That is it in a nutshell minder. Alot of hurt coming so if they are not in office its not there fault. We also have brexit which SF are hoping will be bad so it will harden the support for a UI

If the British renege on the pre Christmas agreement re Brexit then they will have overturned the entire political dialogue since 1985 and you are in border poll territory.
Brexit may well lead to some other unfavourable adjustments, and the DUP will have been responsible for these.

cannot believe the assembly politicians are being paid

same as the sinn fein mps not taking their seats

They are still providing a full constituency service.

They are elected to a body that's not sitting. Stop the pay now

There are MLAs who are not in the DUP or SF. There is nothing stopping the assembly being convened to discuss Brexit or even the budget.

It doesent  matter who the leader is, Foster is apparently quite “moderate”, she has to sell whatever deal to the wider DUP base, that’s where the problem is. It’s not with one person.

She may have something in common with Theresa May in this respect.
However, some of her own interventions, the crocodile thing for instance, we not at all helpful.
