GAA Discussion / Micky Harte & Tyrone part their ways!!!
« on: November 14, 2020, 11:36:24 AM »
Guys this needs it's own thread TBH. What a man, what a manager & what a legend.

Coming from an Armagh man I think Micky should go down as one of the greatest in our games, from underage to senior he done it all. Tragedy after tragedy he came back and put his shoulder to the wheel again and again when many a man would have folded like a deck of cards. He had some terrific players at his disposal there's no doubt about that but so had other great teams but couldn't get over the line but Micky sure did at all levels. Best of luck Micky for whatever else comes your way.

For you Tyrone ones who were looking for a change many years ago that was just silly and I argued against it, maybe the time is right, maybe it's not. Who knows but we'll find out but one thing I will say..."Be careful what you wish for"

Best of luck Micky, some lucky team could get his services next season.

General discussion / Fly-Tipping
« on: April 17, 2020, 11:28:11 AM »
Folks have been walking most nights from the virus kicked in and recently the amount of fly-tipping is out of control, it angers me so much to see lazy good for nothing bastids dumping their rubbish out from the car and driving off.
Last night whilst walking through Oxford Island (local beauty spot) some fecker had thrown 2-3 bin bags from their car onto the side of the road and what came out of that bag was disgusting (dirty female pants, dirty wipes, nappies etc...). I don't usually take my phone with me whilst out walking but i will from now on with the hope of catching one of these feckers in the act...lower than a snakes belly...

What's your thoughts on these people and would you report them if you caught someone in the act?

General discussion / Electronics

Guys any of you any experience is this field...

I bought a Doughnut machine from China (I know...). Anyway mechanically it's working fine but electrically it's not, the element is not heating up to cook the oil but everything else is working fine. I seemed to have tracked the fault back to the high limit stat as there is power going in but none coming out. The thermostat control also clicks at 300 degrees which is clearly not right so between the high limit stat and the thermostat lies the problem. I was going to try and replace the high limit stat with one from the boiler stat (spare one) but the one one the doughnut machine has a wire soldered from the element into it so that has me grounded and i also don't know if they'd be compatible...

Can any of you help out (you will be reimbursed for your time of course)

General discussion / Digital Re-tune
« on: September 06, 2019, 10:55:03 AM »
Just done my re tune and my TV3/Virgin media channel is gone. All the rest of the channels are there RTE1, RTE2 and TG4, i've checked all of the TV, there are Virgin Media 2 & 3 but not the main one (Virgin Media) for the sports etc. My freeview box is built into the TV...anyone else get shafted?

GAA Discussion / Armagh v Cavan (Sun - 02-06-19) Clones
« on: May 27, 2019, 09:20:17 AM »
Well folks, here we are. Armagh have finally won an Ulster quarter final and have Cavan as our rewards, what chance have we?

In all fairness i'm glad we're playing Cavan than Monaghan, not that I think Cavan will be easier but Monaghan just seem to have a we hoodoo over us the last few years and we struggle against Monaghan whereas I think Armagh will have a decent chance against Cavan (60/40 for Cavan is how i rate it).
Will this game be defensive or will it be a shoot out? Cavan have some tasty players and i'd love to see both teams just go for it, hopefully Cavan will have put all their time and effort into beating Monaghan and take their eye of the ball and let us slip through to an Ulster final :P

GAA Discussion / Down v Armagh (Park Esler 16:00) 19/05/2019
« on: May 06, 2019, 10:29:49 PM »
Can't believe this has come around so quick and can't believe the little hype there has been. Sunday week and hardly a mention.

Anyway, it just came into my head when i was passing by this afternoon so just had a nosy for tickets and there was not a big selection left. I took the town terrace as i'm bringing my 10 year old son and I'm not 100% sure where that terrace/stand is but i think it's behind the goal and we've been allocated a seat number so assume it the we small section to the side of the bottom goal.

GAA Discussion / Roscommon v Armagh
« on: July 02, 2018, 10:06:15 AM »
Firstly where will this match be?
Secondly Roscommon will be raging hot favourites so have Armagh a chance?
Thirdly here comes the Super 8's for Roscommon Armagh, delete as you see fit

First point, just so glad we don't have to play Fermanagh again.
Second point, if lose it better be from a shoot out and not another game like I had to watch a few weeks ago.
Thirdly, this is the worst year for lack of interest and low key for Armagh in 25 years...

May the best team win

Well as the Board continues to get quieter every year we need a discussion on the match coming up, I know it's not one of the so called high profile games but to us fans of Fermanagh and Armagh it means everything.

Who's going to win and why? Armagh because we're better than Fermanagh (Just my opinion)

John McEntee had an interesting article in todays Irish News where he says home advantage doesn't matter that much these days and that Armagh will have as many fans in Brewster Pk as Fermanagh will...

General discussion / Running/owning a small business
« on: March 30, 2018, 04:50:57 PM »
Folks i know a few of you work for yourselves and maybe a few own a small business so i'm looking for some advice on it if you can.

Basically i have the opportunity to buy a small business which is surprisingly a lot less than i expected it to be going for but it does need a bit of investement for a renavation and a little shake up, what i want to know is it easy to get a business loan from a bank and what are the rates for paying back business loans. Also i have a guy who is willing to to put money upfront as a silent partner for obviously a share but i'm not so sure (risk free i suppose). I was all up for this with no hesitation but now that it's a reality i'm shiting myself TBH...I have loads of questions but maybe better to answer some of yours if you have any...

GAA Discussion / Club Challenge Games
« on: January 26, 2018, 01:08:50 PM »
Hi guys, there may be a thread for this but couldn't find it...

Anyway I know it's early but i'm going to be looking for a few challenge games at minor level around end of Feb/and the month of March. Division 1 or division 2 teams around Down, East/South Tyrone, South Derry & South Antrim (trying to reduce travelling, based in North Armagh). Anyone taking minor teams looking to arrange games just send me a PM...

Think a thread like this would be good for managers at all levels looking for challenge games, this is the time of year to get your pre-season preperations done early...

General discussion / Investments
« on: December 11, 2017, 03:47:53 PM »
Guys are any of you involved in the Stock Market or any other investments...I was going to go to Armagh City Hotel tonight for a seminar on this new Dascoin thing that's all the rage, was going to invest 1k in it but when i read into it there it wasn't as plain sailing as i thought. The guy explaining it to me on Friday night could have sold snow to the Eskimos and had me but a few hours today on the PC has changed my tune...
I know this Bitcoin is all the rage and Dascoin is supposed to replace it as the new dogs bollocks but from my research it sounds like a few guys are using Bitcoin as their template to start this Dascoin which looks nothing like Bitcoin...

GAA Discussion / Armagh v Kildare 29.07.2017
« on: July 17, 2017, 08:43:36 AM »
Real toughie here for Armagh, they're improving with every game but this Kildare team looks a serious outfit and will be big favourites to beat Armagh. Armagh have a big game in them and hopefully they'll use it to get over Kildare.

Should be a good game and i'd expect Armagh to sneak this one, Armagh will bring a big crowd to the midlands so stock up your bars with Buckfast and extra Garda to keep them in check ;)

GAA Discussion / GAA Injury Fund (Not Insurance)
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:04:24 AM »
I was told last night that Croke Park have imposed a new system on the clubs for their annual injury fund. Apparently there are 3 bands now based on your last years claims. (Hope i've got the following figures correct here but correct me if i'm wrong)

If you've no claims to the injury fund there will be a 10% increase on top of what you paid last year(Band 1)
If you've claimed up to 5000 (can someone confirm this figure) there will be a 50% increase on top of what you paid last year (Band 2)
If You've claimed more than the figure above your increase is 100%...WTF. Which will be most clubs in the Country.

I suppose anything over 2 operations and you're screwed...Croke Park haven't even brought this in gradually but with a bang surely this should have been imposed gradually or clubs told this will happen next year etc.
Many clubs are on their knees with County Board fee's and stupid tickets imposed by County Boards that the clubs must sell and now Croke Park are turning the screw...How some of the small Junior and Intermediate clubs survive i do not know.
