General discussion / Re: Poppy Watch
« on: October 10, 2019, 06:48:19 PM »
I saw my 1st poppy of the year today, in Dublin Airport of all places. The whole of Norn Iron seemed to be there on route to Amsterdam for tomoro nights game. Plenty of tops etc but one guy had a jersey with the biggest poppy I ever seen emblazoned on the front of it....
Some people wear them all year round..was in Belfast city hall last year during the summer and one of the security guards was wearing one  ::)

General discussion / Re: Rugby - what's the attraction?

i Have a passing interest in rugby. I do enjoy the big hits and manliness that you just donít get in the likes of premiership football. Thereís an excitement in some matches in the 6 nations etc that Liverpool v Burnley just doesnít produce. Iíve been to an autumn international in the Aviva and it had a better atmosphere than most EPL matches. I still prefer Gaelic football and hurling and would watch any GAA match ahead of soccer or rugby

Armagh either Grange or Shane OíNeillís

Armagh is slightly similar, except the grades are split in two for league football: Senior A and Senior B; Intermediate A and Intermediate B; and Junior (junior used to be split but a number of teams withdrew so it is now just a 14 team league).

16 teams in Senior football; 16 in intermediate; 14 in junior. Winning intermediate or junior championship ensures promotion as does finishing first or second in your league section; unless you finish second and a team below you wins the championship. So for example there is a team in the intermediate B league, who finished third. They have reached the championship final; should they win theyíll be Senior B league for 2020, skipping a league.

Danske Bank's new mobile banking app. Compared to their old mobile & tablet apps, it's nothing less than a major fail. 😔
Awful. Looks like they contracted some A-level student to design it. The old mobile app was much better.

Iíd like to think theyíre liable. One of their employees filled your car with the wrong fuel? They havenít really got a leg to stand on, do they?

The point made was that some SDLP people joined FG or were consorting with FF who are both right wing and therefore couldn't be called "nationalist".
To be fair they may as well just join the UUP in the north

I liked Brolly and still do. Heís a great character, even if he was a bit of a **** in the heat of the moment at times. You need people like that to stop you from falling asleep listening to the colm oírourkes, Ciaran whelans et al

Do you have to be a loony leftie to qualify as a "nationalist"??
f**k me. Any ďnationalistĒ that joins the House of Lords will rightfully have their credentials questioned.

Not sure if itís been mentioned already or not on here but Bryson has made a complete dick of himself with forging signatures and was exposed by BBC. Says itís a smear campaign but doesnít actually deny itís him. Guy is a complete idiot, hopefully means we will hear less from him on Radio Ulster

Anyone here any experience with VAGs that were recalled because of the emissions scandal couple of years ago? Specifically with the EGR valve being knackered? The reason I ask, Iíve started to get a few warning lights pop up along with limp mode. Had a quick google and there seems to be the suggestion that this is a common fault post recall. Got the mechanic to clear the codes after a service there last week but donít feel comfortable driving now with the chance of it shitting itself on the road and I know itís a big enough fix. Mechanic reckons itís time to move it on.

I didn't think the emissions scandal had anything to do with the EGR valve. Common separate issue for EGR to be knackered, but I thought the emissions scandal was a brain manipulation to con emissions tests?
I didnít either, hence asking. But seemingly there have been plenty of reports of EGR problems according to

Itís a pain alright. Car was solid pre recall. Ever since Iíve noticed the fan running more and more often (after 30min journeys) so assuming DPF is getting hammered as well. Iím just wondering would there be any recourse with Audi with a car that age or is it best just getting rid? Donít like the idea of selling a car I know will cause the new owner problems
