M8 if I expressed joy and genuine happiness over brutally murdering someone you'd celebrate my happiness and add in that murder can be bad.

How you so happy? Drugs?

Its an all too familiar a story, sad and desperate. Good luck to the lad in putting his life back together, I met him a few times across the tables and he seemed sound.

Nice chap, sad story really. Gambling horrible addiction. Kinda feel sorry for him.

No. I turn heel and run away from you as fast as my legs would carry me.

I was in Galway the last few days. I was lucky enough to get into Connemara and climb the Diamond. Nearly killed me, but that wont be my lasting memory.

This place took the shine off what i did. The hill is in the background.



I was talking to a retired police and he was telling me, 30 years ago, he was in a car with his Sargent, parked across the road from Letterfrack. "that place needs to be investigated he said, ill bet there was murders carried out there"

I have had a few drinks now, but i hope to wake true to my word, Im not sure who said it here, HJ ?, but I will make it a personal mission to approach every person in religious garb and beacon to them , whisper in their ear..." you should be ashamed"

I'll bet that retired police said Fuck all to his sergeant. That sounds like a nice story Oleras and I like you m8 but I'm calling bullshit on it.

Hope you enjoyed the climb all the same.

Sorry to hear that as he is a very nice guy (money pilfering aside) Sad to see him in such a mess. At least he didnt go the other route and hopefully he can sort himself out over the next while. Only had a quick scan of last years thread yesterday and was thinking i hadnt seen him lately about.

Just shows you, You never know what someone else is going through. He was obv in serious trouble this time last year and prob hoped this win might bail him out (please excuse I appropriate pun). While everyone else was having a bit of craic and hoping to scoop he was probably bricking it. Poor lad hope he gets through it.

Had dinner here last night. It has 1 Michelin star

http://www.penhalonga.com/en/Dining/LAB-by-Sergi-Arola

Incredible experience. Of the 20 courses only two felt like they were there to just fill time. The rest ranged from good to great.

Feels somewhat wrong to be noting that the tipping comp now has a €1900 prize pool.

Hope gazman gets it back together, always found him to be perfectly normal. Also (and I say this as a banker), fuck the bank. Hopefully someone got sacked - this should have been nipped in the bud 1 minute after the first attempt and then everyone would have happier outcomes.

3 years in jail for that while scummers who are breaking into people's houses every night and have a string of convictions never see the inside of a cell. wtf.

The problem with some addictions especially gambling can be hidden until huge damage is done.
If the man was a raving alcoholic it would have showed physically same with drugs.
Gambling is different no hangover red eyes etc if you do your brains.
Don't see how jailing him sorts anything.
How can he pay back with a criminal record.
When you see guys getting off for beating and biting his girlfriends face and other absolute scumbags getting suspended sentences its hard to stomach.

I don't think there is a defense of what he done. The way other crimes are handled is a separate conversation. I hate when the Garlic / Onion fraud case gets brought into these type of conversations.

"Don't see how jailing him sorts anything."

Tell that to the family of the woman he stole nearly 40k from.

Do your time and hopefully come out the other end clean.

Was involved in a few investigations in casinos about money missing. Gathered machine records, CCTV footage etc. It amounted to 6/7 quid a month and owner was a bit puzzled why the manager was so worked up.about it. "Those little nibbles always become big bites" was his response. Wanted the guy gone, owner said he would have a word. 6 months later it all blew up over a 4 figure sum from a customers account.
