Berlin Noir series worth a read? I think some lads on here talked about them before.

Absolutely, you will not be disappointed.

Kids love it, it’s got millions of followers so it must be doing something right...

As does Candy crush!!

Both shite but millions love it. I do though love Sarah Cooper’s take on Trump

I definitely think Sarah Cooper is the reason Trump wants to ban it.

Thursday night in the Arena....that’s where the craic was at!
Met a girl in the Arena in August ‘91. Married 24 years this November.
I wonder what happened that girl.

For a Keady woman, she married well!

Thinking of buying an SUV with a budget of 15k - 10k, would appreciate any advice on what and what not to buy, something comfortable, reliable and easy on the eye

I have a Nissan X-Trail, only a 1.6 but fairly economical on the diesel. Nice to look at and very comfortable to drive.

Sinn Fein playing ‘silly beggars’ with Council’s play pitch strategy complaints

Sinn Fein are playing “silly beggars” with Council’s play pitch strategy, according to the SDLP.

Craigavon councillor Declan McAlinden has hit out at Sinn Fein comments questioning the Council’s strategy, which they say “fails to reflect the needs of the entire Craigavon community”.

Councillor McAlinden explained his party’s position on the matter.

“At a recent meeting Sinn Fein put forward a proposal to have an EQ IA (Equality Impact Assessment) on the council’s play pitch strategy after having sat for three years developing the proposal without once questioning the process,” said the SDLP councillor.

“Their motive is unknown but their proposal doesn’t have the support of the Ulster GAA council, local clubs or schools.”

He added: “In fact, their proposal would only have delayed the implementation of the plans, and potentially put at risk, the existing developments.

“Sinn Fein need to quickly explain their solo run to the GAA community within the Borough and to the Ulster Council of the GAA.”

Sinn Fein councillor Catherine Nelson had stated that our public spaces “must be reflective of our entire population”.

Adding: ““The GAA is the largest sporting organisation in our Borough yet in the Craigavon area ABC council provides 25 pitches for soccer and zero for GAA.

“The failure to equality proof this policy is also of major concern.”

This aged well!

Tyrconnell / Donegal

I like Clontibret, mainly coz we beat the Brits there once.
Did you know that Tír Chonaill is Donegal minus Inis Eoghain?

And it was the Dernoose men who did most of the fighting and strategic thinking at Clontibret. As “Yellah Mickey” once told me and I quote “There are Two ounces of wit in the world and one and a half is in Drumnahavil. For those of you who aren’t Harold D that’s the epicenter of Dernoose.

“Yellah Mickey” is correct.

 Tis a bit blowy in Drumnahavil this evening.

Dernasell West (Doire na Saille Thair - Oakwood of the salted meat)

With a name like O Mochain, I would guess you’re from round that direction.

Just stumbled across this after listening to an old Blindboy podcast. It’s magnificent and was obviously banned at the time. Hang up your Brightest Colours - The Life of Michael Collins

Anyone able to recommend a decent tablet, going to buy one for my parents (in their late 70s) to make it easier to do video calls etc. Something fairly basic will probably do the job

I bought this last weekend for my 80 year old mother-in-law so she could watch mass and make/receive video calls. She has got the hang of it relatively easily. Not the most hi tech but does the job.
