Any of you lads thought about taking up the whistle?

Ah the classic line used to absolve Referees of any mistakes/bad performances.

It was a genuine question. But if you want to take it that way work away.

But just to add being called ‘truly terrible’, ‘just awful’ and ‘ a compete clampit’ does what for recruiting referees? And then when there are no referees for games the ones on this board will whinge and cry about there being no referees in the county. I genuinely don’t know why anyone would be a referee with the crap they get on and off the pitch. What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Without Refs there would be no games, be thankful these "terrible" "awful" "clampits" bother at all. Wouldnt be the 1st time Dromore charged a ref at the end of a game either

Note - Niall Sludden received a blow to the head during the first half and was concussed

Surely Dromore had a duty of care here not to put him back on then, poor on their part if this is true

I think he kicked a score when reintroduced

Why was Niall Sludden  taken off at half time and then brought on again? I know he was on a yellow but hardly reason to take off your main player
 Errigal really dominated the middle field and breaking ball for the first 15 after h-t

Can't decide on air source heat pump or traditional oil boiler

I like the idea of having lower heating bills and having one bill for heating and electric but is the additional cost worth this and has anyone had any experience with these. I am obviously getting the sales pitch from a couple of companies.

Need to make up my mind as NIE need to price how much my connection will be and this will be a factor.

If you are going underfloor, a Heat Pump would be your best option combined with solar to provide warm water. The built in immersion will provide back up for winter

Whatever you go with try and get the house airtight, well insulated and heat recovery ventilation is a good investment

Your other option is stand alone oil burner, Grant condenser is very efficient. Send your plans to Grant and they will price you up both options
You can also incorporate a stove with back boiler to this system but you need to get your plumbing set up right with Maxi pod type hot water tank/buffer tank

Speak to a good plumber who is up to speed on both set ups  before you make up your mind

Thanks that's great advice.

One of the guys who is trying to sell me the heat pump told me that he has a customer who put it in that I can go talk to who is very pleased with it. £1400 for the year to run electric and heat and hot water on a similar size house to what I will build.

I would treat anything a sales man has to say with a huge pinch of salt
Join this Facebook group if you are building a house https://www.facebook.com/groups/816924585093717/?ref=share
Use the search button on there at top of page to search heat pump/air source heat pump which will help your research
Hundreds of different opinions on there depending on who you talk to. Renewable building regs much stricter in South
Some horror stories on sky high electric bills if pump is undersized, controls/stats not set right or house not airtight. If house isn’t air tight with heat pump you are wasting your time
The key with any of these systems is preventing cold air leaking in so you got to get the basics of insulation and air tightness sorted first. If you want air tight heat recovery is a must
Personally I have seen heat pump and oil at first hand. Each has its own pros and cons
If your house is well insulated and air tight it will take very little to heat your home regardless

The chats on the Sunday Game are ok, but it’s all a bit bright lights.  I’m much more enjoying the Tomas O’Se interviews on FB.  I’d recommend them if you haven’t seen them.  Down to earth and interesting.

Where can you get those- what page?

What would you expect to pay for the erection and dismantling of scaffolding and per week hire? Mid ulster area.

Probably work out cheaper to buy it second hand and sell on when finished
If you are waiting on tradesmen you wouldn’t want to be paying by the week

There’s a fb group called ‘SelfBuilders & Home Improvers Ireland’ which can be useful.

I have one. Another thing you will need is an appropriate gun cabinet bolted to the wall. Fire arms officer will come out to inspect it before they issue the permit.
Thunderbolt it to the wall- easily done
You need to visit a firearms dealer and pick your gun and have the serial number before you fill the application
You’ll also be called into the police station for a short interview
I think you might also need permission from a landowner (or confirmation you have your own land)

I see the home heating oil has come down lately. Got 500 litres about 3 weeks ago for 225. It’s now 205.

£195 with LCC this morning

anybody here used insulated pre-cast slabs. how does the insulation compare to traditional floor insulation?

Would depend on your heating system
Are you going underfloor? If so I wouldn’t go near them as you would want the heat to immediately deflect upwards into your screed acting as thermal mass rather than heating extra concrete for no real reason?(you would be wasting energy heating the slab and have a slower response time)
Go with traditional pre stressed or precast. Get them to seal the cores. McGarritys or Spanwright would been keen
Put down your floor insulation and clip your UFH heating pipes to the insulation

Does every club have floodlights

No. Infact very few do.

i was thinking about this also, does this mean there will be no friday night championship games this season... I can't see the use of the athletic grounds being a go-to option

Depends really, Fintona and the Dungannon Hurling pitch last year were really the saviours of the Championship. This year could be different with the lack of qualifiers maybe easing up the club calender but you would still have to expect Senior Championship will not be to September no matter how Tyrone do so I would expect any Friday night game to be at either of those locations. We might return to the days of 4 games Saturday and the same Sunday.

I don't think Healy park is closing now this season, change of plans, but time will tell

Omagh not up for contributing enough cash?

Anyone from the North any experience in claiming tax back from self build? Got the house signed off by building control February 2019, so was able to get the final draw of the mortgage just got it spent there before xmas so only getting around to claiming the tax now, says on the tax website returns should be filled in within 3 months of house being signed off, Ive never heard of this before, anyone shed any light on it?

From what you are saying you got full Building Control Approval Certificate issued in Feb 2019? Whatever document you are using as evidence of completion you have 3 months from document date to get your claim in. If your claim is late you need to send accompanying letter explaining delay. You have a couple of options here:

1 Send the letter explaining why late along with building control cert  as evidence
2 a letter from your bank or building society to certify last date the loan instalment was released
3 Rates District Valuer Certificate of valuation

I would go for option 2 if the rates crowd haven’t been with you yet? All of the above is in the notes with the claim form on the website on pages 6-7.

The helpline number is on their website but don’t mention you have full building control if going for option 2

Came across this site on another forum
Some good advice

Good luck with it as it’s usually a tight sum of money and you don’t want to be missing out
