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 havenít 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 donít 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 itís usually a tight sum of money and you donít want to be missing out

With the changes to Saorview frequencies, i was forced to re-tune two TVs (Samsung and Hisense).  Both are picking up the Saorview channels in the 800's but the problem is that both the quick program guide and more detailed guide are showing "Viewer Advisory" for every channel in the listings, with more information about the retune, despite having already tuned the TV's.

The EPG works fine for RTE1 and RTE2 in the 50's which come from the repeater in the north.

Anybody experience anything similar, or Fionntamhnach - any ides?

Same with me
Done the retune back in September
Just noticed the viewer advisory popping up a very odd time

That ethernet adapter brings the Fiire tv stick  up to GBP54.
Can that midget really perform as well as a 4k Magbox?
I'm in the market for a 2nd device.

I turned through 180 from being a magbox disciple to using nothing only Fire stick. I never even needed an Ethernet adapter for it. In my view a serious piece of kit at the price...
Only reason I needed Ethernet cable is broadband speed is very slow

Anyone ever side load any of the apps onto a Now TV stick or know if it can be done?
Save having to buy another Firestick

Don't think it can be done on nowTV stick. They are basically a roku stick but they are locked down to sky/nowTV.  Roku stick i think you can only get Plex on, as they dont run android based apps like the firestick does.

👍 Thanks

Any such thing as getting a firestick with an Ethernet port rather that relying on WiFi?

Yes there is an adapter you can buy here or check ebay etc for cheaper copies

I bought this for the Firestick. Itís a good job

Any easy and cheap way of loading (or accessing)  RTE player onto a Firestick in the North?

Errigal would have won that game, have no doubt.

I agree
Was a favourable draw
If you canít beat the Fermanagh champions over 60 mins and extra time no point crying about it
Trillick had their chance and didnít grab it

Championship structure may need changed too, every other county seem to do the groups allowing teams to have off days. Not a back door but a group of 3 and the top two qualify or something. As well as every other county doing it, it is also similar to the Super 8s

You can get to F&@k with that idea
Straight knockout is the only way to run a club championship
Thatís what is so special about Tyrone Championship

Who would be strong in each of these competitions?
Rock have serious experience at Junior level in the past and should be there or thereabouts. Donegal teams have come good at Junior in recent times. Would Buncrana be able to make an impact?
Intermediate seems quite strong this year. Could make a case for most of the teams left in it.

Ryan Bradley former county midfielder is Buncrana, is he playing? What about the jigger Oíconnor - didnít he start the 2014 all Ireland final?

I have a Parrot CK3100 hands free kit in the car. Never had any bother with it until a couple of weeks ago. A number of times it wouldnít work and was just sitting with the backlight on and ďgoodbyeĒ on the screen despite the ignition being turned off and car even locked.  Disconnecting the battery terminal worked for a while.
Now itís not powering up at all and when I do a disconnect at the battery for 5 mins it lights up and then ď no signalĒ appears on screen for a short while and then the unit goes blank. Anyone experienced similar problems or have any suggestions?

What about Harry Og Conlon- he didn't feature for Edendork in any of their championship games.
Is he injured? He was in around County panels at one stage

Sudden is a joke of a ref, always was and always will be.  How he gets any game is beyond me.
Carrickmore be glad to get a second chance after a poor showing second half. Found it strange that Edendork tried to defend a two point lead with still 5 mins of normal time left. First half was as good a football as I've seen in all championship games this year although the standard has been very disappointing.
Expect Omagh to come through today followed by Coalisland and Trillick just.

Tiernan Murray worth the admission fee alone on his first half showing. Did a Carrickmore player receive a second yellow but sudden never flashed the red card so he stayed on the field. Near the end so it didn't matter but ger treacy  seemed pretty sure on tesmtalk

Did he get a straight red in first round? Obviously appealed
