What time is the Frampton fight scheduled for on Saturday night?

Half 10 I think

I see that Channel 5 have picked up this fight.  At least that's handy...

Did the Mourne wall back a right few years ago although split in 2, camped out overnight halfway. Was Feb time and think it was -10. Great walk not sure if I could do it again as the oul knees and feet aren't what they used to be. Any of those mentioned Errigal, Cooleys all great walks.
 Another one ive done a couple of times in recent years is the coast walk from Giants causeway to Ballintoy. About 11 miles and reasonably flat. The scenery was breathtaking. Make sure to time low tide at whitepark bay though. Finish in the Ropebridge bar for a few pints. Pints remember them!?
Milltown look at Solomon range..abit pricey but exactly what your looking for.

They look the ticket, will get them at the end of the month lol! Be interested in Cooley myself, not that far away in fairness. During the first lockdown I was doing 16km a day locally, nothing beats a good walk with the dogs, god love them!

In-laws are big into the walking and they swear by the solomons too.

Scotland 2 Austria 2 FT

Incredible second equaliser by John McGinn after 85 minutes, an overhead kick placed into the far corner from an angle, perfect contact off the sweet spot

Austria had gone 2-1 ahead after 80 minutes with a peach of a header

Some big guns got off to bad starts last night, Holland and Croatia both beaten, France only drawing at home to Ukraine

Delighted for Super John McGinn.  Always comes across as a great lad.

I'll get doing a bit more of this after Easter myself. Usually do a few trips up the Mournes every year.  A couple of years in a row we went mad and did the whole mourne wall walk. I don't think i'd be up for that again though as it puts some strain on the feet and knees.

I'd like to branch out a it this year.  I like the sound of Slieve Foye there.  Cheers Sid.

Onto the second series of Snowpiercer on Netflix. I believe there is a film but I've never seen that.  Still couldn't tell you if i'd go as far to recommend it but it's easy enough viewing.  A decent concept.  I have a feeling that it could become quite stale after a while...

Was given very short shrift by Claire Byrne tonight but itís fairly obvious Brolly was never going to dance around the subject and would be shooting straight from the hip so it begs the question well why ask him into the show in the first instance.

If he didnít have a vendetta against RTE before tonight well I think it will be ramped up again further now. Joe will at least get a bit of publicity and a few columns out of it anyway. I just knew when I seen him down to be in the programme that somehow heíd end up being the story.

I've never watched this show but stuck it on RTE player there to see what had happened.  Is yer woman always like that or did she just take a disliking to oul Joe? Joe will get some mileage of this...

Newcastle look to be in the sh*t. Lucky there are no fans about or the cabbages would be flying.

I'm not fully up on all the facilities available in Antrim but why have the county board not enhanced one ground up to a reasonable level in all this time that Casement has been closed? Reasonable sized stand, with standing areas right round? decent floodlights.

Are they worried that if they invest in somewhere else that Casement will be forgotten about?

Last chance U back on Netflix with a new series.  Basketball in LA this time.  I wouldn't be a fan of the sport but will certainly give this a go.

Over half way through this and it is again great viewing.  What some of these kids go through is unbelievable.

That being said, I just cant imagine coaching them.  I would have half of them thrown out of the gym during training or games for how they speak to management.

Time was right. Injuries and age really caught up with him in playoff games the last 2 seasons and he looked like an old man at times

They will be fine re the cap, its like a yearly challenge with them. Only 9m over at the moment and bar Malcolm Brown it hasn't been too painful. Thomas just restructured deal so he is staying.
I expect Kamara to do the same.  Hill could play more at TE this season than QB with Cook and Josh Hill gone. 
Jameis is still front runner to start at QB but they should be drafting one with their 1st round pick. Russell Wilson as much as I would love it to happen would be too expensive.

I missed that one!

Good luck to Drew, but IMO the time is right.  A legend gone.

The Saints are in the sh*t in terms of cap space and have been cutting lads and restructuring contracts for the last few weeks.  I still expect some big departures.  Probably Michael Thomas.  No idea what they are going to do at QB now.  Taysom Hill got a restructured deal but i'd be surprised if they start the season with him as starting QB.  Same probably goes for Jameis.

Pirlo bound to be under pressure now especially given their league position??

That was the best game of soccer I have watched in quite a while. The pace and skill and commitment was outstanding and it makes the PL look like a second rate competition.

Knockout stage of the CL is the best football about IMO. The groups I could take or leave.
