BBC News - Kosovo's army dreamers enrage their Serbian neighbours

Headline of story in today's Irish News - Serbia warns of armed response to Kosovo army.

I'm sure the Russians will be watching on intently.

Strange yet interesting.

BBC News - Consecrated virgins: 'I got married to Christ'

General discussion / Irish Dancing
« on: November 05, 2018, 10:03:57 PM »
I'll freely admit knowing next to nothing about Irish Dancing but I'd be ambivalent enough about what I do see.  Is it a big addition to Irish cultural life? Is it culture, a sport, a beauty pagent. It does seem to attract a lot of competitive parents.

General discussion / Hypnotism

Anyone ever used Hypnosis in a serious way - Quit smoking or the like? (Not running round thinking you're a chicken) Would possibly be interested in applying it in a sporting sense and would love to hear any experiences.

US boy, 9, killed himself after homophobic bullying, mum says -

That's just so horribly tragic but leaves a few questions in my mind.

General discussion / UK v Russia
« on: March 17, 2018, 01:20:21 PM »
What do people think of this? The UK seemed to have reached conclusions long before anything has been proven. Woe betide anybody who doesn't weigh in behind the jingoistic Government line. The rapidity & rashness  of the response is worrying imo. Boris and the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson 2 utter clowns as per normal.

General discussion / Bet 365 refuse to pay out on 1m gamble
« on: December 16, 2017, 10:54:07 AM »

Happened during the Summer but only coming to court this week. The crux of the matter being 365 says she was a front for a syndicate and in breach of 'no 3rd party' rules. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out, in a previous similar (Barney Curley)case the bookie had to pay out.

General discussion / Belfast Murder Victim lay undiscovered for 3 years

Marie Conlon: Man charged with theft and fraud offences -

Strange one this, something not right about it. 3 years, no work colleagues, social services sticking their noses in, no social media interaction for 3 years in this day and age is bound to be another red flag.

GAA Discussion / Where now for Tyrone?

A thread that's obviously required

General discussion / La Vuelta 2017
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:20:21 PM »
Favourite GT about to kick off.

Looking even more brutal than normal this year, L'Angliru back and some other monstrosities. 

Hard to look past Froome, he looked like a boy that started the Tour on 3/4 power to try and save a bit for this. He likes La Vuelta.

General discussion / Can cramps cause damage?
« on: August 02, 2017, 12:20:58 AM »
On return from holidays I went hard at it on the bike for a week to try and shift the holiday weight. One day I took 3 cramps simultaneously, 1 in my left hammy, 1 on the same leg but at the side of my thigh and another side of the thigh cramp on the other leg. I've never experienced anything like it in my life, I was on the verge of passing out. The hammy hasn't been the same since and is twitching like mad. Could a bad cramp do real damage? Google says no. Can still cycle but doubt I'm helping matters.
