The prices to go away for a few nights in Ireland are a disgrace

Second that Jim.

It is really sickening to hear this constant yapping about supporting our own during tough times etc - well I say f**k them if all they want to do is fleece their own.

Agree, wouldn't mind doing a staycation in Ireland but the prices are crazy. They're trying to grab back some of the lost profits.  Would be ok to a certain level but currently it's back to rip off Ireland again.

I think it is a case of supply and demand and what you're willing to pay. But like I said I rang a few hotels and they were booked out. I did get some availability in others and booked a very nice hotel but at over Ä2,000 it wasn't exactly cheap.

Two grand? Are you staying a month?!

Try self catering apartments. Way cheaper than that. Iíve never paid more than about Ä550 for a week for an apartment.

Jaysus is it the Shelbourne??

Iíve booked a refundable weekend staying in the Crowne Plaza Santry for 2 nights for 2&2 B&B for Ä250.

Weíll do the Zoo and Malahide a day if the weather is good.

Theyíre making a big mistake thinking itís the Unionist community against them many Nationalists and Republicans are not happy with the blatant hypocrisy on show.

Yes Sam McBride is a Unionist but he has no problem getting stuck into the DUP or Sinn Fein when itís warranted and heís right on this occasion!

Watched Alt Right: Age of Rage on Netflix.

Fairly topical at the moment given its climax around the Charlottesville statue and riots and the murder of Heather Heyer.

Theyíve slipped off the scene a wee bit, Richard Spencer, Jared Taylor and Milo Yiannapolis and the rest of those gobshites. Hopefully Trump will follow their bigoted arses in a few months.

Theyíre not on twitter or the mainstream platforms so much but theyíre still about unfortunately!!

Alex Jones as well looking to eat his neighbours asses!

Any other county not having their normal leagues this year or is it only Mayo?

No league games in Dublin which is 15 games. Teams will get at least 3 championship games. Could be a cup competition would will probably be another 3 games.

No leagues in Derry a 4 team round robin then seeded for straight knockout in the Championship each team guaranteed 4 games.

Our grading system doesnít really depend on the league though like it does in some other Counties you can choose what grade you want to play at in Derry.

So MON, as SF leader in north attends the funeral of a leading figure in the IRA who played a major part in bringing the organisation along into in the peace process .... shocking

MON followed regulations and guidelines in attending the funeral ... shocking

Massive crowds turned out in West Belfast for the funeral of one of their own ... shocking

Canít believe this story has garnered so much discussion.  I suggest that no one should take their lead from the tabloid journalism of Stephen Nolan. 

If MON was to resign, and SF refused to nominate a successor, biggest losers would be the DUP, they must have very short memories.

I donít give a shite!!

This is the Cummings thing all over again one rule for them and another for everyone else. Families not allowed at funerals for 4 months but a big IRA man dies so itís ok for the leader to go to that while others suffered?

Bullshit! I couldnít care less what the DUP have said or what loyalists will do sheís plain wrong and her apology wasnít worth a f**k. Those defending her are brainwashed dickheads stuck in the past!!

What she has done the past few days is not leadership itís a far cry from it!

Are all the travel restrictions lifted in the ROI? It was always going to be difficult to manage numbers but SF didn't even appear to try?

Totally fucked it just when you thought they were doing alright again.

Robin Swann being sure to get stuck in as payback for Michelle undermining him a few months ago.

Sinn Fein a very apt name for today!!!

Jamie, Ruth Dudley Edwards and Trump are my chosen gobshites. I often wonder how Jamie does it, does he ever sleep?

Ian Og's parody account was good, caught out RDE, the arsehole.

Anyone follow guido fawks?

Would do that a bit myself a few right wingers in the UK and a couple of nuts in the US a good bit but they are mostly mental.

I find it mad the echo chambers these things are though. For example I watched a film called "The Personal History of David Copperfield" because I mostly like Ianucci's stuff and the comments on twitter were very complimentary.

I loved the film but noticed the rating on imdb was quite poor (6.3)and then I went into the comments . . .

One of Dickens greatest comedy-dramas cheapened into a ridiculous slapstic comedy with an unrealistic PC cast that makes no sense in Victorian England.

For me movies are about:
Believability and Escapism
The movie utterly fails on this regard with the over colourised casting of ethnic minority members #replacing what originally should've been a European White cast, being in the mid 1800s the story is set in.

For example, having an Indian David Copperfield born to a white woman, Mr Wickfield being Asian and his daughter Agnes being black, as well as the white Steerforth's Mother being played by a black actress. There are also many other examples in the film. This colourlind casting is very distracting.

I think we all need to broaden our horizons on both sides of the left/right divide!

So Trump may win because of Chicago and an isolated spike in violence in parts of NYC?

Are you not confirming Main Streetís point whitey?

Also are the Democrats not the party of gun control? Surely it's the President/Republican Party's fault that these guns are still out there killing people?

You canít have a situation where social distancing is going to be ignored in schools yet when children walk out through the school gates at the end of the school day will be subject to the same rules as everyone else.  If you are going to scrap social distancing for children then it has to apply in all circumstances , not just in school

There's talk of creating a "Classroom bubble".

Was just out of a meeting there it's a f**king minefield for teaching and as has been said some are working really hard and some not. Some schools sent out a pack of work for kids to do 3 months ago and haven't heard from teacher or student since while others have been on teams and seesaw interacting with kids on an almost daily basis and they'll get the same money it's not fair but then in times of crisis are things ever going to be fair??

At the minute schools are back full time from end of August and hopefully social distancing will have been greatly relaxed by then. But what if a teacher or member of staff are high risk? Where does the school get the money to pay for a sub?

What about all the new rules/processes/risk assessments that need to be put in place for return in terms of dropping off and collecting kids... lunchtime... breaktime?

What if the school doesn't have enough room to accommodate social distancing in classes?

What if a child has to take 2 weeks off with a parent showing symptoms? Does the teacher have to teach their class then do distance learning?

It's a f**king balls and the above isn't even scratching the surface along with the fact there's not a whole lot of help coming from Government. Gurn all you want about lay teachers and there are some but the majority that I know around here work damn hard and care about their school!
