Enid Blyton has been cancelled now.

No more Famous Five for me. Ffs.
What’s she done?

Apparently her books are racist and xenophobic  ::)

Some of her work is dubious enough but this hardly new news.

I just finished renovating part of my house, and I want to furnish it.

The shelves in Ikea are basically f**king bare, as the pandemic has basically shut down their manufacturing completely and Ikea cannot say when they'll be fully stocked and back to business as usual. We can't get beds or the shelving we want. We did manage to get an order in for a couch from Pottery Barn or some other higher end shop back in March, but we won't see delivery of it until September!

Several major car companies, including Ford and Subaru, literally shut down their production lines in the US for a couple of months due to the chip shortage. The same shortage is affecting production of phones, computers, game consoles and other electronics. Anyone able to buy a PS5 for their kid yet?

On what f**king planet do governments want these shortages and inflationary pressures as they try to reopen economies and get life back to normal so they can keep their jobs at the next elections?

No but I got one for myself.

So you are asking them to charge less than normal?
That would be the expectation. They claim one of the reasons for their normal and high prices is to cover the cost Live music. There is no live music now and probably won't be for some time.

They’ve also a fraction of the customers and been shut for nearly 6 months. On top of that I would assume they have the same covid protections to put in place as any other bar/restaurant.

The whole of Kerry should be tackled first.

I never really get people who complain about the price of pints or food. If you don't want to pay those prices go somewhere else. Get a carryout, stay at home or whatever. Taking a picture and putting it on the internet - It's up there with the woman who left a bad review because the restaurant wouldn't give her just hot water and a cup so she could use her own teabag.

Don't go.

The point is why they feel the need to charge such prices in these times and as already said there is better areas to drink and eat in the city. Any decent business owner should be going out of his way to make sure customers return.

So you are asking them to charge less than normal?

Top 5 in Ireland (at the moment), no way I could pick international

1. RCD
2. Portrush (Dunluce)
3. Lahinch (Old)
4. Portmarnock
5. Tralee/The Island/The European (hard to decide but I do like playing Tralee more)

Just on Parklands, haven't got an invite to play Adare since it was redone and not paying full whack with a caddy etc...so the 3 I would put is Mount Juliet and Killeen Castle. The opens of the blacks in Killeen Castle are pure carnage  ;D

Druids Glen is great but the conditioning hasn't been where it should be the last number of years.

Killeen is a monster. Great condition though. Forgot that I played it. Shot a billion or so.

You're a busted flush. Leyton Hewitt went round her in 65

 He was 21 when he burst onto the scene with that 65. Couldnt do it at 22. FACT

Lough Erne Faldo Course is the answer you are looking for.

I've played it 3 or 4 times and it's nice but definitely didn't blow me away. I've never played Galgorm. Masserene in Antrim looks half decent for the price.

Maybe but Galgorm for me isn't even in the discussion.

I think RCD is the better course over Portrush. Not by much mind and not convinced on some of the changes made to the Dunlunce links.

If it's non-competitive it's RCD all day long but in a competition it "possibly" sways the other direction as less blind shots and a bit more space of the tee.

Giggs not being given a place in the hall of fame due to an allegation.  Ronaldo better watch out, be a lot of awards to be taken off him if the same treatment is applied to him.

Is there not a pending court case? If so it's the right thing.

He should be in there but the timing is wrong, so would would only trigger a lots of shit.
