Those plans are a joke, county teams have already played about 10 games this season while clubs have had none, at best let them finish the league and forget about the championship. They r asking clubs to jump straight into championship with no build up while county teams will have a few months preparation, easy to see where their priority lies

I have a business contact in the UK who has just purchased 250,000 test kits for self diagnosis. Pin p***k results in ten minutes. Sent me all the info as hes putting it out through his direct sale team. All properly certified by most stringent European standards.

Hes a businessman who isn't making money by his core business but has stepped in to assist supply chain (because he can) and make a small ( not extortionate by any means) that will help sustain his business in the short term.

Not sure whether or not to get involved in this because there are a few people profiteering...albeit not massively....but then again so the question is....is there any harm in it?

Just using here as a testing board for opinions on this thing. As caprice guide....I can buy these kits around £12 and have been advised to RRP at circa £15.

Should I get involved, ethically is it ok to make a few pounds by doing this? At the minute I'm seeing two sides of a same coin?

seems fine to me, isn't exactly Randox margins
At £12 they are making £3-£3.50 a pop. Was tempted myself to buy direct from China, min order was 10,000. My problem unfortunately is that I have a vulnerable (very) person in my house and would be afraid to get involved as somewhere along the line I would be afraid of coming into contact,
 only for that I would be flogging then along with N95/FFP3 masks

I see Americas are encouraged to wear face masks when out and about while this side of the world we are told the opposite.

Which is the correct advice, are we told that because healthcare workers would have a big shortage of masks?

I do a lot of business with the Chinese and Hong Kong, every one of them is telling me we are crazy here not wearing masks, they cannot believe it. They have two effects, one is minimising the chance of getting airborn infection if someone sneezes / coughs etc and the second is you are less likely to touch your mouth or nose when one is on. In addition you can buy self testing kits for only US11 each, I can access them but only problem is the minimum order is 10,000

On the street the mask is of marginal use, it is of more use in a train or the like. If you wanted a mask here could you get one, or many of course since you are not supposed to wear the same one multiple times.

Thatís the crux of the problem I am trying to get at, the no wearing masks and lack of benefits of the mask is what we are being told by our governments etc, this is not what the Chinese are being told and they are handling things much more effectively than we are

We lost a club stalwart, former manager and lifelong member this week, was very hard to know what to do. Ended up doing a guard of honour. 5m apart on the road leading to the chapel, was very poignant but you have got to feel for the family who were denied a proper funeral and his friends who never got to see the ceremony or burial or never got a chan e to say a final goodbye or pass their condolences to the family. Crazy times but we have to do what is best for everyone in these crazy times

Lads well worth a read, had tears in my eyes reading that. Jasus so glad it worked out well for young Sludden, a brave young man to come out and talk to the Irish News like that but if it helps even one more person then was well worth it.
Poor lad. Happens to a lot of sportspeople who struggle to deal with serious injury. Good luck to him and great to see him on the mend.
Didnít even mention the fact that on top of the 3 cruciates he also broke his leg at 15 or 16 and missed the guts of a year with that too. Never seen a young lad as badly hit with injuries, the fact that he was out for a 8 months with his second cruciate, played half a reserve game and a week later comes on in a senior league game against one of his biggest rivals, scores 3 points in his first 10 minutes, this shows you just how talented the lad is, serious loss as a player but pales into insignificance with the effect the injuries have had on his mental health

The Uk figures are not in any way accurate in my opinion, massive cover up happening. I know one couple in England, return from Italy skiing 10 days ago, felt the symptoms, got tested and were told to self isolate for 14 days, they were never and still havenít been given their results though. Today in the SWAH hospital in Enniskillen apparently 1 person has died and another is critical with the virus, not a word of this being reported. Boris will pay for this in the long run but he doesnít care about the long run
Not many facts in that post.
Well unless the two nurses I know that are working there today are lying then I may be wrong!

Does this apply to the north? Could games in the wee six still go ahead? Surely not.

Wonít apply to Antrim or Derry, they never get crowds that big.
Dublin canít play unless the cut down their back room team

Topofthe soil lighten up when you are top everybody tend to want you beaten.Trillick minus Matty and Ritchie would struggle to beat 5 or 6 clubs imo.Moy not one of them though.
Topofthesoil very unlikely to be a Dromore man GAAfanatic, he likes Micky Harte, comments of hurling discussions and tips Killyclogher to beat Dromore in first league game, sounds like the other side of the county to me

Fans rioting in the tunnel now with players.

Some of these Dublin fans appear to be travelling to matches just to cause trouble.


Just looked like players and back room staff. Hasn't been a dirty game. Was there even a yellow card shown?
Players and back room staff only, fans canít get in there

Anyone at any of the 1/4 games.
Was at the omagh v Armagh game today, atrocious conditions, should never have been played. Omagh by far the better team but tactics once again very questionable. Big McGleenan excellent for Armagh, virtually carried them but Omagh left same man on him the whole second half which was idiotic. Some bad decisions up front and a very poor goalkeeping mistake cost them also, but to be honest I canít see either of them being real contenders.
