If I was bringing a baby to England does he need photographic ID?
What means of travel?
Birth cert should do for ferry

Sorry should have specified, flight!

Not an uneducated assumption - it is close to being an Antrim club too. Out on its own - nearest other Co Down club is probably Carryduff or Tullylish?
Sounds like the game is tight enough.

Would be closer to Tullylish, they used to amalgamate under age teams together a few years ago.

We have a cruise booked for September which we arenít going on even if they are back allowing them at that stage, which I doubt. It has a couple stops in Italy.

Just holding off now hoping for a refund Iíve paid just over a grand for it so far. Not paying anything else now of course.

Already seen a few places down southís prices going up. Girl I work with is raging she said all year they werenít going abroad this year they were just gonna do a tour of a few places down south for 10 days or so. Now everyoneís thinking the same and the prices are soaring.

Jet2 cancelling flights and holidays to Spain including Canary Islands this morning. Does this effect anyone? I am due to go to Lanzarote 1st week of June with the wife and kids. Havenít a clue what way this leaves me now or even what to do. Cancel and lose the deposit or wait and see?

I had us booked for May to Salou, the final payment was due this morning (I had already extended the date as long as I could) and it wouldn't let me cancel online, said I had to ring. So I said f**k it on Friday morning i'll ring now, thought I would forget to ring yesterday. Was on hold for about 40 mins. Got it cancelled then, lost my £180 deposit. If I'd waited less than a day to Saturday I'd have got the lot back! f**k.

Any suggestions for a decent Irish Bar in Krakow to catch the Tyrone Donegal game on Saturday night?

Pod Papagami might show it. Just off the square.

Anyone see Tyrone McKenna's fight last night? An absolute robbery of a decision for the French fella he was fighting. I was glancing at in play betting throughout and at the end the Frenchman was 1/200 to win then they suspended it completely they assumed it was that much of a given.

Though I suppose it's easier to market McKenna v O'Hara Davies in the final than some French fella who can't speak English.

Have three kids
7, 5 and 2.

Looking to go to a Euro Camp this summer, has anyone done these before? Will be first time taking the kids abroad, sort of want a one stop shop where everything on location.

Done a couple in France (La Baume, La Croix du Vieux Pont) which were both very good in their own ways but last year done Bella Italia at Lake Garda and it was the best of the lot. Loads to do on site, loads of reasonable restaurants, you are right at the lake too where you can swim, hire a boat, pedalo etc. The town itself Peschiera is only a short walk by the lake. Gardaland theme park is only about 10-15 mins drive away too it is class, your ones would love it. We got the annual passes so we could come and go to it all week, wasn't that much more dearer than paying to all go for one full day.

Congrats to Fearghus Quinn from Belleeks Co Armagh. I know his sister very well, certainly has dedicated every part of his life to boxing and now has the fantastic opportunity of fighting under MTK along side the fury, Frampton, conlons of the boxing world

Is that the lad that fought Donnelly in the Irish finals a year or two ago and was robbed?

The very one.

As others have said cheap flights with Ryanair to Bergamo then hire a car and itís an hour drive mostly motorway.

We stayed in Peschiera (Bella Italia campsite was great) and it was a good base for exploring. Will definitely be back.

Anyone recommend any family friendly resorts after flying in to Alicante.

Dont want to go near Benidorm but struggling to find elsewhere that has places to keep kids amused

Magic Natura. Fly into Alicante and its about 40 min transfer. Its so good for families, its all separate bedroom lodges. The pools at the site are class but you also get unlimited access to their onside waterpark Aqua Natura and they have their own zoo Terra Natura.

We have been twice, our wee one loves it. They do a daily bus to Benidorm both visits we did one morning at the beach and then went back to the site we had enough Rangers tattoos. You could easy spend the whole week on site without going into Beni.

One of the infinity pools on site looks over the elephant enclosure in their zoo, my daughter loved that. The food was standard all inclusive but it changed daily and they were generous with the drinks.

I Hear there is men in building sites doing coke on weekdays up and down the country.

The absolute state of this. Away and have a word with yourself.

I genuinely don't understand this.  Are you saying it isn't true?  Or that it shouldn't be said? Or what?  Plenty of people in construction, as in many walks of life, use coke.

He saying that the building trade up and down the country is basically coked up, everyday, on site. It is, of course, complete lies.

I know a few ones that take coke on sites. A minority though there is some. He didn't say the whole building trade was coked up did he?

Child is off for a week end of May so I priced up the Mon-Fri for 2A2C (one baby so wouldn't be charged and one four year old) and it was coming up 800E just for the accommodation. By the time you add what you would spend on getting there, food, drink, activities you would be safer going abroad for a week all inclusive. And that was only for four nights, not the week.
