Valentines Day edition tonight. My God. If this is what post Catholic Ireland looks like, bring back Archbishop McQuaid.
Itís a cringey Friday night tv programme ffs. Ireland doesnít ever want John Charles McQuaid or anything like him back. Thatís a poor comment tbh.
Im not sure the quote was intended to be taken literally

No point making excuses about Garces. England were much better and Jones had his homework well done. Physical upfront and they obviously fancied Henshaw as vulnerable. Big Dev nearly decapitated somebody and wasn't pulled for it so you give and you take. Ireland aren't a bad team overnight and it's only Game 1 so nobody has won anything yet. Scotland will be no pushovers either so hope for plenty of improvement over the next matches and finish the tournament with everyone healthy.
Iím only logging on now. Havenít read earlier posts but in fairness it would be hard to find one as sensible and informed as this one. Apart possibly from the comment about exploiting Henshaw. In my opinion they recognised Earles as being more vulnerable to the high ball

Iím with Benenden through the Civil Service. Thankfully I only had to use it once for physio. Got taken privately straight away whereas there was a 6 month wait on the NHS

To be honest I don't know what sitcoms are even on nowadays. The Inbetweeners would be the last thing I watched.

Just gave my opinion chief. Youíre quoting a pretty extreme show there but as with all shows of that nature the bigot was always the idiot and the joke was always on him.

As a kid I could never understand what was supposed to be funny about It Ain't Half Hot Mum and I'd say it hasn't aged well either.
It would be considered very politically incorrect nowadays.
It was on a hiding to nothing as it came after Dadís Army. I found it reasonably funny. Problem nowadays is that weíre so politically correct there are no good sitcoms on TV any more. Ironic that the liberals who promote freedom of expression are actually strangling it with their political correctness. Weíre being forced further and further down a puritanical road

Just out of curiosity, does this app reference the southeast of the country? Heard about a provider last night that I hadn't come across before and it made me laugh.
No

Its an actual built in app used @Galwayman - there are maybe 3 or 4 different channels of each channel

In the unlikely event of one failing, another one is working beside it.

Ive been recommended to have 10+ mb/s (not an issue as i run off 180mb/s myself   ;D ;D)
Are you on his new app or are you still on the old one?

PM you now northsideboy & clarshack
I'm assuming you're putting them in touch with the same guy you mentioned to me. Very good service. I've got 3 different providers at the moment, long story, but his service is head and shoulders and I'll be moving the lot to him under multi room when the other subs expire. By the way General are you using android or firestick?

Public sector procurement is crazy. A few years ago I got a new patio put in with Tobermore paviers. I was chatting about it to a guy who has been involved in some major public realm projects in town centres costing millions. Bizarrely the cost per square meter for my £6k patio was considerably lower than the cost for the £6m public realm project. Hard to understand

I really donít want him to resign. Heís such comedic value. An enemy within for the DUP that they can do nothing with. Itís such a source of entertainment for us all that the son of the total bigot who founded the DUP because the UUP wasnít sectarian enough is now a total embarrassment for the mini bigots that the party spawned.
Couldnt disagree with that. Throw in the fact that he has enough support from the Paisleyites within the DUP to spook the leadership and the fact that if he was ousted it could allow Jim Allister to become MP, heís much more valuable where he is.

No. It has a 12 month warranty. Problem exacerbated by the fact that I bought it in the US
