There are no minimum qualifications to be a politician. Robin Swann has a maths degree , so he has a capability to crunch numbers . Health expertise= none.  Is Boris any different?

2 hours is the max for a P4 to P7 child . Maybe an  hour p1 to p3. The rest of the time I'd be letting them engage in play , creative arts , music , outdoor play ( in the garden) , things that will occupy them , outdoor camps / tents / learn more code / coding activities. Most school have sent a lorry loads of stuff to access for ideas.
I view this as a sabbatical for children . Times are scary enough ,without stressing about their learning , most of them will be in school to their 18, so plenty of time to catch up

Online subscription is £15 for 4 weeks , which is reasonable value and saves going to the shop on a daily basis.  Agree some of the quality is poor, not enough in depth stories . One recent positive is the two day story /  coverage of GAA people  e.g Sean mc greevy this week.

The many clubs who Rely on the social club for income will be getting in tight for the next while - Hope Govt or Croke will step up. Fundraising generally will be well done - tough times

Iíd say the clubs donít make much money bar Davittís, hasnít been much profit from our club since the peace process
i know what u mean but the General fundraising goes on around bar in r club. Surely the clubs wonít have to pay the same amount of fees and insurance this year?

Was there not an email out there reciting clubs about this from Croke?

Clubs have already paid Player Injury fund fees to croke park

Guinness stepping up to provide something - sanitizer maybe ?

They have a fairly dubious reputation as well. (More from the employer perspective than anything).

If they can make them where else can?

Almac possibly?

I was told the Randox test is about £12, but it is bundled with 10 other tests and you have to buy the bundle.
Not sure how true that is.
[/quote

That was questioned by Stephen Nolan , spokesperson wouldnt concede that only one tested was needed .@ £12 only. Nolan pressed him without success.£120 or do one !

Easyjet shareholder stelios ,after receiving his £60 million bonus , recommended that the board close up and sack staff.
Then had the brazen cheek to ask for a government bailout. The govt gave them the two fingers last night .what a cnut@

Any arsehole contemplating training should be banned for life! Why do some people not get the concept of a life threatening illness

Gaelfast is an exciting initiative in theory and no doubt has many challenges to overcome. Some valid comments in recent posts but I would have to say that I am currently underwhelmed. 18 months in and I have no idea how effective it is or what the clearly defined goals are. The lack of a specific plan to guage progress is not good, should we not be able to see an uplift in participation levels, what are the benchmarks, is Belfast the primary target etc.
I'm of the opinion that if something is not measured then its not managed. Lots of positive social media posts won't convince me of Gaelfasts validity or longevity.  Let's open the debate and encourage those in the know to update us accordingly so we can fully back and support the project. We all want Antrim to improve but we can only rally round the flag if we can understand cause

How long is the funding for?



Gaelfast led by PD  is miles ahead of any organisation on Antrim in monitoring and measuring the impact of their work.
They audit and evaluate the impact of everything they are doing.

The impact of their work in schools , does not correlate to an immediate up turn in attendance at clubs, that is down to clubs linking effectively Into their feeder schools.That takes time.

It is a benefit to everyone , if the student teachers are trained to coach gaelic games properly
