What is corporate manslaughter?

Is the offence when an organisation has grossly breached their duty of care resulting in the death of an individual or individuals.

Does this mean the organisation gets the penalty rather that the individuals/corporate officers?

Hold on.... people are flying the national flag on the national holiday???

Well that is just as shocking as it is outrageous.

 ::)

It’s the celebration of a saint, not a national holiday.


US Independence Day. Americans flying the US flag, that’s understandable.


Question: What date did the the Republic of Ireland get its independence?

Ballyhale Shamrocks v Saint Thomas   beo
2-00pm

Corofin v Doctor Crokes   beo
3-45pm

Monaghan v Cavan or Galway v Roscommon not covered on TG4 this Saturday?

TG4 listed to have NHL semi-finals on Saturday, but the weather delay sees the 3 remaining quarter-finals on the schedule...presume they will stick with the hurling.

Dublin/Tyrone and Kerry/Mayo on Eirsport on Saturday.

What's the story with GAAGo and the league games that are on Eirsport. Does GAAGo work for these games in 26 counties, in 6 counties?

Is there another PPV way of getting Eirsport games?

GAAGO is not available in the 26 counties or the 6 counties.  It is limited in some way in England/Scotland/Wales, but I think league games are available.

No idea on getting Eirsport via PPV or any other platform.

Also remember that a smoke alarm needs testing on two fronts.  The battery is the obvious one, but often neglected is the smoke sensor, which can be tested by, well, introducing smoke to it.

Didn't Gough show he was serious about the gumshield rule by making the midfielders get in compliance before he started the game?

Showed he was serious about the rule and very stupid by a player to ignore the rule.

Kerry's Peter Crowley has a habit of playing with the gumshield hanging out of his mouth sometimes...surprised he hasn't been pulled for it as it is a lot more obvious than not having one at all.

Was hoping to watch the club semi finals but can't find them on the TG4 player - highlights only.

Does anyone know if the full games are available? And are they available overseas?

TIA

On GAAGO

Anyone know a way of putting this on a smart tv other than a laptop and a hdmi cable. The tv has a web browser and I can load the GAAgo page but doesn’t support the videos. Would one of those google chromecast or something similar do that? Would it be any better than the laptop and hdmi in anyway?
i have edigitalplace.com which is also 24/7 stream tv it’s $60 a year and has all Irish English and us channels I log into it on the smart tv like a laptop and comes through great .

Can you record games from edigitalplace.com?

You are requited by law to carry your licence in Ireland.

Road Traffic Act, 1994
PART IV

Driving Licences

Requirement to carry driving licence while driving vehicle.

25.—The following section is inserted in the Principal Act in substitution for section 40 of that Act:

“40.—(1) (a) A member of the Garda Síochána may demand, of a person driving in a public place a mechanically propelled vehicle or accompanying pursuant to regulations under this Act the holder of a provisional licence while such holder is driving in a public place a mechanically propelled vehicle, the production to him of a driving licence then having effect and licensing the said person to drive the vehicle, and if the person refuses or fails so to produce the licence there and then, he shall be guilty of an offence.


While driving. That means having it in the car would suffice, which is where I had it when it was a booklet. Now it's in my wallet..

Ah. However (and this may be another myth) is it not a bad idea to be reaching into your glove compartment (are they still called that?) when the US cops stop you?

It is recommended to have both hands on the steering wheel at all times, especially when the cop is approaching from behind.  If he/she asks for your licence, and it is in the vehicle or in your pocket/wallet or wherever, just state where it is.  "It's in my wallet in my left rear pocket officer" and don't move a hand towards it till he/she tells you to do so. 

Before allowing you to reach for it. he/she will probably ask if you have any guns or weapons in the vehicle - and they tend to believe your answer most of the time. 

Of course, when you are pulled over in the US the first thing the officers will do is run your plates for any flags that might be raised.  That can take a few minutes and will determine the attitude (sometimes) of the officer as he/she approaches the vehicle. 

If they draw a weapon as they approach the vehicle, before any conversation at all, you will have a long day.

USA residents versus Irish habits, I reckon.
