I think playing behind closed doors is helping them in that there's no crowd tension.

They've been replaying Ireland England 90 non stop on Eir Sport. Jesus it was dire, but it didn't seem it at the time. It was an odyssey.
It wasn't pretty but nobody cared. It was all just wild craic. I watched the Euro 1988 match v Holland in a bar in Genoa with some Dutch people. They were almost as disappointed as me when Ireland lost. RIP Jack from an Ireland and Leeds supporter

Was fortunate enough to get 5 nights booked for Gyles Quay l. Taking a lend of a relatives caravan. Not the usual summer holiday but it will be great craic to take the young one away for a few nights. Hopefully the weather brightens up a bit and we'll have a few bbqs etc.

Ä30 euro a night including the electric hook up.

That actually sounds like great craic. Im sure will be brilliant.
      The thought of towing the caravan and all that goes with setting up the caravan on the pitch would put me off though. There is a bit more thatn meets the eye with caravans!
     Hope you have a great time.
Donít be put off itís actually very little bother when you get used to it. Enjoy Gyles Quay General itís a lovely part of the country. Iíve never stayed on the site but Iím told itís great.

Ordered 2000 litres for 422 yesterday

Bloody hell, that's a big domestic tank.. how long would that last you, two or three years?
Mines that size as well. I remember the builder saying you can get 250 gallons into a 500 gallon tank but youíll never get 500 into a 250 tank. I think this is the first time in 30 years that itís been full.

This poster, aka the notorious 5Times is now consistently using this unfortunate post that I quickly deleted, to try and goad me. Iíd respectfully ask other contributors to treat this constant copying of the post with the contempt it deserves.

Honourable mention for all-round idiot Alex Easton, who the Irish News totally stitched up by printing a letter of his verbatim criticising Irish language funding that was so riddled with spelling and grammatical mistakes that it looked like the ramblings of two year old handling a biro for the first time. Not only filmed shopping online for shoes during health committee meeting up at Shitmont, but the tr**p went on post a photo of his staunch brown brogues full of holes in bid to defend his actions. Maybe he should have shopped online for a toupee, judging by the big hole you can see through that ridiculous combover of his.
Iíve searched Fridayís paper and canít find it. Any chance you could put it up here?

What age? Is that in NI?

Edit: I should also say very sorry to hear that :(

He would be in North Yorkshire. He'd be the 80 mark but as fit as a fiddle up until last week. Sound aul skin too.

He passed away few hours ago. RIP
Thatís awful news. RIP

While I appreciate that the wording in my earlier comment, which I've now removed and would respectfully asked those who quoted it to do the same please,  was insensitive and inappropriate, it was written in the heat of the moment. However  the fact is that the Iím absolutely livid that the DUP managed to turn the fight against a deadly disease into a green/orange issue by deciding not to adopt an all island approach and instead follow the obviously flawed UK line. Even Jamie Bryson was arguing for an all island approach. I'm just really angry that these people are prepared to play party politics with peopleís lives.

Any outings to shops we put our clothes  in washing machine as soon as we get in through the door!

This time of year I am wearing a coat and the virus only lasts on fabric for 4 hours, so I don't.

Wife is watching and listening to all the online experts and news

Although 4 hours has been advised and there are ranging times, there's no harm on washing clothes after but as with everything else... Wash your hands after

As I do, gloves on gloves binned ! And showered when I came in! Relentless but once itís a habit itís not an inconvenience

Did you drive? Did you sterlise the car before you drove it again?

Drive (no daily shopping) and wiped down bags and shopping with alcohol wipes, car only has me in it and I use disposable gloves, binned afterwards. The only safe thing to do is stay in completely. But if Iím using the protective procedures what else can you do? I donít meet anyone but my family. I dropped of food for in-laws at driveway.

Other than walking around in a bubble suit with a 2 metre ring attached to you.
Sensible precautions. After all if it turns out that being a complete bollix is one of the conditions that makes you vulnerable youíll be straight into the at risk category

Companies that have been proven to shit on their employees will find the publicity they get afterwards very damaging
I really hope that ends up being the case. Personally Iíd love to see that Brexit loving cnut Tim Martin having to eat grass when this is over. And on the subject of Brexit loving c***ts I wonder how much Dyson is screwing the Government  for his plagiarised ventilators?
