General discussion / The Best Burger?
« on: November 20, 2018, 09:17:51 PM »
Hard to beat a decent burger. In Out / 5 guys pretty good. I wouldn't thank you for a McDonald's though I'd take a Burger King. I've had a very swanky one out of Gordon Ramseys Burgr joints, far far too convoluted. Most chippers, well in this part of the world all buy from the same supplier so, well all taste the same!

There's a place in Derry, Pyke n Pommes (permanent street food stall) that does the best I've had. Unreal. I'm in Dublin in a couple of weeks and have been recommended Bunsen for a tasty bite

General discussion / Gas or Oil
« on: January 17, 2018, 12:23:08 PM »
Our area can now avail of Firmus gas. Have heard it's a good bit cheaper to heat the home / water with gas than oil. Anyone switch from oil to gas? thanks

GAA Discussion / Marty Clarke hangs up the boots
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:45:30 AM »
An absolutely brilliant footballer, sad to hear.

Former Down playmaker Marty Clarke has called time on his playing career at the age of 29.

The An Riocht man informed his club mates of the decision last week after having spoken with a consultant in the weeks after Queen’s University’s Sigerson Cup defeat to DCU last month.

An outstanding underage prospect, Clarke had two separate spells with AFL giants Collingwood and backboned Down’s run to the 2010 All-Ireland final against Cork after returning home from his first stint.

He returned home from Australia for the second time in November 2014, just months after being diagnosed with an extremely rare case of Addison’s disease.

Speaking in today’s Irish News about his decision to retire, Clarke stated: “I made the decision because of the stress it’s putting me under.

“The dynamic nature of Gaelic where you’re running, you’re jumping, I was putting my body under a lot of stress.

“I just felt completely zapped from the start of the game to the finish. When I got home it was taking me longer and longer to recover.

“I went and got a bit of advice from the consultant and he recommended I stop competitive sport.”

“It probably hasn’t sunk in totally but I know in my heart, the way I was feeling after a lot of football games for club and Queens, that it’s not safe and I’m not doing myself justice probably

“The Kingdom have been first class and it was pretty emotional telling the fellas.”

General discussion / Donating blood / training
« on: October 28, 2015, 11:47:10 AM »
I'll be donating blood in a couple of weeks. Anyone any experience on how long you should wait before hitting the gym again, spin class, intense circuits? Have read varying reports online, some ranging from a day to a few weeks. Wouldn't fancy fainting in front of a class tbh!

GAA Discussion / Minimum age to play senior football 2016
« on: September 03, 2015, 08:59:03 PM »
Has a new rule been passed that a player has to be 18 to play senior football next year? If not,  has the current rule changed for next season at all?  Have been hearing various bits and bobs in recent weeks.

General discussion / Phone / tech bans in the house
« on: January 07, 2015, 03:49:58 PM »
We started a new phone / tech policy in the house last night. All phones, gadgets or whatever are left in a basket in the kitchen at 10pm until the morning. Its mostly for our eldest young teenager's benefit, who is spending way too much time on hers and is finding it hard to concentrate on studies etc. Good for me also as I was watching too many shows and not getting enough sleep

any of you do anything similar? Any tips re phone etiquette and children?

cheers

General discussion / Body Transformations
« on: December 18, 2014, 10:54:27 AM »
Seems to be the whole rage at the minute.....the quick hit. I'm for really getting the finger out in the new year re fitness. Not for doing one of these intense transformation but break a sweat everyday and completely overhaul my eating habits.

Just looking some advice on a regime and any diet sheets if anyone has them.

Exercise
I've gym sessions on Tues, Thurs and Sat afternoons starting 3rd Jan and have zero problem doing early morning runs to tick the aerobic box.

Diet
Any plans for each day of the week. Portions etc Definite do's and don't's

I suppose I need some fit hooer to tell me what to do each day to get into good shape in a few months (theres bound to be a good few in the same boat)

Rocky soundtrack downloaded (no joke)
thanks in advance

General discussion / Android Emulators
« on: December 13, 2014, 08:54:01 PM »
Anyone recommend a good one?

Have Bluestacks but it will only play Showbox movies on low definition.

Tried Andy OS but it grinds my laptop to a halt (high spec ultrabook)

Anyone try Genymotion?

Cheers
