Quick question for BBVers. If you were recommending some must do or see things in Ireland to a couple in their 50/60s visiting for a week or so, what would they be?

Hire a car and drive between kerry, cliffs of moher, Galway , etc...and take time to take in local attractions, pint of Guinness, etc... Stay a night or two in whatever local B&B available. That kind of thing.

Stay out of Dublin as it's been invaded by Spatalian teenagers.
Also avoid Killarney and Cliffs of Moher. Bespoiled.

Do B&Bs. East Cork/West Waterford is really beautiful yet doesn't get the crowds that places like West Cork and Kerry do. Carlow and Antrim also good. Rent a boat and cruise the Erne waterways?

Screen on my MacBook Air isn't working after I'm guessing getting squashed travelling over the weekend. It lights up but just shows lines. Anyone any guess as to how much it'd cost to fix? And do I just bring it to CompuB in town?

Depends on their interests and general inclination, how much driving they want to do, do they want to stay in just one or two places or would they move every night, how interested they are in arts and culture, what kind of music they like. Are they into walking or any other activities etc.
A few places I like to bring visitors that don't appear on every tourist agenda:
Newgrange is a world class site and Armagh and Navan Fort could also be visited in the same day trip.
Lough Allen / Arigna north shannon.
Waterford has some of the best coastline, fishing and swimming spots beaches in the country as well as the Comeraghs and some nice villages.
For anyone that would be up for horse riding / pony trekking there is an excellent trail riding and adventure center in East Galway.
There are lovely places like the Glen of Aherlow for hill walking and scenery off the tourist trail.
For Irish music try the area around Ballyvourney on the Cork Kerry border or around Scarrif in East Clare and on a similar theme there are some very good smaller arts and music festivals like Boyle and Kilkenny.

Then again they might be happiest staying in the some big resort hotel in Salthill and listening to Declan Nerney doing his thing.

Pray for sunshine would be top of the list.

After that I suppose the obligatory spin around the capital for 2 days to see museums before heading for the country.

You have the North West V South West trade of after that.

Northwest - Galway races (next week I think) for a day then out to Connemara, up to westport, cycle the greenway out to achail, up to sligo for some yeats stuff, take a peak at north Donegal if you have the time.

South west - Cork city and work your way round the coast until you hit motorway in Limerick basically. No idea whats on in particular but its west cork and kerry so plenty of nice views and trad pubs for tourists any way.

The west mocks your beaches and fishing spots.

its a lovely town but not a whole pile to do there. You can do some nice day trips though, west cork, Killarney, etc. The Tom Crean restaurant is nice up the top of the town, across from Lansdowne Arms hotel

Drive out of Kenmare.

Go see the skelligs,probably the most spectacular tourist attraction in Ireland,get there before the Star wars crew/fans wreck it!
It's about 1 hour 20 mins drive to the boat from Kenmare,then 45 mins boat trip,worth it though

Ah fantasy football the season hasnt even started yet and im annoyed. Mostly its your fault arsenal.

Ramsay or Corzola. Will Theo Walcott be a forward his year and how many games will he play and the age old is Rooney due a good start to a season and will he get to be a striker or stuck in midfield again.

Maybe Lorraine Higgins just needs to take a different approach to the interwebs.

Wouldn't be surprised if it turned out Higgins is sending death threats to herself, it's the only way she can keep herself in the news. The fact that yet again she ran to the media before the guards says it all

Sounded to me like she is a bit pissed that the Guards hadn't caught the lad that doing it despite the trail of evidence that must exist from previous episodes.
