Any recommendations for hotel accommodation in Kilkenny? Small group of lads so nothing fancy required but handy for the pubs etc.

People driving with earphones in/on - especially the ones who think you should drive with the big noise cancelling ones.

Should be an instant permanent ban.
FFS I have seen the odd driver wearing buds which I assumed were to take call on their phone but I have never seen anyone wearing the big cans. You're right though they should be took off the road for being stupid.

Corbyn has been gearing up for this since the start which is part of the reason they weren't offering any alternatives. He has wanted to force a GE but it would be a big surprise if any Tory would rather have a GE and potentially Corbyn in power than a lame duck May. They keep saying that they are against No Deal but they are rapidly running out of time. What a shambles.

Mikeys in Belfast is decent..
Is that the place near the Northern Whig? If so then yes, I  had a dirty burger out of there after a few pints and it didn't touch the sides.

Aye it's a nice part of the world. I spent a month and half tramping around the Peak District years ago. Lovely around Castleton, Edale, Kinder etc. Like you I keep saying I'll go back but still haven't got around to it.

Never have been a fan. Kfc must better in my book lol.
KFC better than Nandos? Nah. I do like a KFC but Nandos is better. Always get the butterfly chicken with the macho peas.
The one near me does takeaway also!

Would always get KFC if Iím in another country... I like the chicken pieces on the bone but if you get them here they are literally dripping in grease for some reason and thatís not the case in other countries!

Frankie & Bemnyís is total muck! Also any Wetherspoons!
I'd take the odd Tennesse burger and a pint in Wetherspoons in Edinburgh Airport. Decent enough packing.

Was my nightly haunt in Buxton for 7 months!
How was Buxton? Had a heavy enough night out in it 22 years ago!

Was driving out of Rushmere on Saturday evening there and as I passed Five Guys I thought of this forum. Not a sinner in the place as predicted on this thread. (Shopping Centre was packed too).
Was in Rushmere on Thursday afternoon and it was empty with McDonald's doing decent trade. It's a pity for the workers in there but the stuff is too dear for a burger in a shopping centre.

Terrible tragedy, powerful winds yesterday.

Is there a hill walking thread or is this it?
Start up a fresh one if you want. Seems to be a popular pastime these days.

2 lads killed up there today in high winds.

Unreal!! Mate and his daughter where there today and they stopped before the saddle and headed back! Said the winds were horrendous.
Aye it's terrible. I think for most of the year they are treated as a Sunday dander but when the winds are up and you have cliffs etc. they are obviously very hazardous. Lot of people go up ill-prepared and are more interested in Instagram opportunities (certainly some people in my work are  ::))

Prob more appropriate for an ĎAnnoying things on FacebookíThread...but never got why people who find a licence or bank card plaster the persons name over social media, rather than just hand it into the f**king police.
No good deed can go unnoticed.
