I wonder is it the same at high level inter county football/hurling in August/September when games are coming thick and fast?
You could probably measure intensity levels of rugby vs GAA over say 70 vs 80 mins and then recovery times.
The GAA season is definitely shorter at the highest level. What counts is the frequency of pharma use over the long term.

In fairness the IRFU have done a good job reducing the exposure of players to too many matches but the body recovery issue is still a problem.
The IRFU have, but the Premiership in England is an absolute grind. The big boys like Saracens etc. can rotate squads to a certain extent but I'd say some of the smaller teams have boys patched together going across the white line.

Ive had kitsound arenas before and although they are ok, they certainly arent fantastic.

About 8 months ago i got a pair of Bose QC35 IIs and they are one of the best pieces of technology i've ever bought. I use them for commuting etc but ive never taken them on a run so cant comment on that. Cant see it being a problem though.
I'd love a pair of the QCs but can't justify 300+ quid on them. I'm no fan of flying and I found that noise cancelling headphones are a really good help as the block out the changes in engine noise. I bought a pair of Sony ones for about 100 quid but they're still leaky and no comparison to the QCs and Sony MDRs.

Just seen the video. Some of the lads on here saying he should be sacked etc. have embarrassed themselves more than Brolly has. A wee bit of a lingering hand and nothing more. Move along.

Mrs. Baloney reliably assures me that Farmer's Union (in the north) are as cheap and comprehensive as anyone.

No mention of St Galls Intermediate Hurling campaign?

Played Queens and Jordanstown lately, yourselves on the 15th and Castleblaney at some point, its going to be tough for us Nial Burke and McInerney provide the backbone of this team we play. they'd be the best team to come out of Galway I'd say as Galway have never won at this level before, We've about 5 players out with injuries at the minute but all should be available for selection come the 19th of Jan..

We'd need to be at are very best and Oranmore have a stinker to get over the line, but these lads have been down that road before so we'll give it a lash.. It could well be the last go at this level, lot of lads nearing the age of hanging up the boots
What's the pipeline like?

Didn't know the anthropoid story until I came back.  If I ever go again I will definitely visit that spot. 
Nice city but I did expect it to be cheaper.  Stay off the beaten trek for the cheaper establishments
Like a lot of Eastern European places it has been on the radar for tourists and stag dos for a long time now.

Paul Sherwen.

Wonder what happened there ? Sad news.
I don't think it has been mentioned. Died at home in Uganda apparently.

Appears to be the case that when he was 20 he was going out with/had a one night stand with a consenting 17 year old. He subsequently sent an image of her to his mate.

Obviously, a silly act (and illegal) but to see some of the twitter reactions you'd almost think he'd a hard drive stuffed with hardcore child pornography.

I'd imagine he'll be given some form of suspended sentence.
The word "child" in the crime is very damning. I don't know why the girl is treated as a child and also meets the requirement for age of sexual consent.

Plenty online nrico but I think what you really want is the inside track. The legal boys would know more about the punishment but I'd be surprised if he did time. A fella in work said the "child" was 17.

One thing the last year has taught us, both at club and county, is that McManus is our best player by a country mile. Without him it will be difficult (but not impossible).

Having watched the Galway final highlights I, unfortunately, am not so sure Cushendall players will be missing until after February as that team look a step above any teams up here. I hope I'm wrong but at least if that happens the cushendall county players will be back sooner.

Hoping James McNaughton and Keelan Molloy will have a chance to shine though as they seem like 2 big prospects for the future.
McManus is by far the dominant talent on that team but if he wasn't there someone else would need to become the "go to" man. Is there anyone else that can carry a team like he can if the need arose?

Exactly and therin lies the strange Belfast that was that era. Arrange safety- call it what you will. But fair play to all who let the students play away.
Whoever was directly getting the profits or a cut thereof no doubt didn't mind all the students spending money.

Showbox RIP. Developers settled with 'the man' and have abandoned the app if rumours are to be believed.
Alternatives? Cartoon, Terrarium still chugging along?
Bollox to that. Just check my phone there and no movies available.
