      I think V is just trying to be provocative without actually knowing how the distribution chain will work.

        In fairness to that age cohort, they are generally the best-dressed section of the population by some distance.

        Might start wearing suits again when I'm old(er).

          That one tweet stood out like a sore thumb as a very distinct and measured type of stupidity that is not at all typical of Brian's own brand of bog thick stupidity or of his usual social media output not least the use of 'Narrowwater' rather than Warrenpoint which is a description that would be used by Nordie IRA insiders rather than a Queens County bogger like Stanley, although I suppose if he was on active service that time he might well refer to is like that.

          But there is a definite trend here amongst the lower profile SF Wheelie Bin types having their social media accounts peppered with material that comes from Belfast that they clearly did not compose themselves, in fairness he has a far more credible record in local politics than most of the Wheelie Bins but the evidence about the atypical controversial tweet now disguised by the deletion of the twitter account is strong.

          We shouldn't underestimate how deeply sinister the campaign that tweet was part of is.

            Very hard to believe in Irish banking when I see the back slapping and congrats for Permanent TSB just introducing Apple Pay now.
            This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
            All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

                The most revisionist thing of all is the pretension that the PIRA campaign was not about blowing the Brits out of Ireland, but was rather about Civil Rights. Mary Loo is very fond of that particular line of bullshit.

                I do like to point to the Green Book of the IRA as actually definitively stating what the IRA's objective really was (and that they self-evidently failed at it):

                "By now it is clear that our task is not only to kill as many enemy personnel as possible but of equal importance to create support which will carry us not only through a war of liberation which could last another decade but which will support us past the 'Brits Out' stage to the ultimate aim of a Democratic Socialist Republic."
                FAIL. So let's eh, pretend it was about something else altogether.

                  Leprechaun economics FTW. Only developed economy expected to report growth this year.

                  Activity in the distribution, transport, hotels and restaurants sector, which had been severely impacted by the initial lockdown, grew by 46.9 per cent.
                  Find this hard to believe. OK, distribution maybe, but transport, hotels and hospitality? LOLWAT.

                      Absolutely it's to go to the vulnerable first, then front line workers like doctors/nurses/careers or maybe even those two in reverse, not 100% how that bit works or if they are all lumped as vulnerable.

                      However with limited doses compared to population that need/want it, there has to be some sort of order after that. In my work, whether you agree with it or not, I'm deemed as an essential worker on the basis that if there wasn't people like me working, the vaccine wouldn't get here in the 1st place.

                        I think the transport section covers a very large sector so can definitely see that being up based on just my own internal figures as imports have shot up year on year let along quarter on quarter and exports are somewhat surprisingly very healthy also.


                        On the hotels and hospitality side of things, I read that it was up on Q2 which makes sense. Everywhere was pretty much closed for most of Q2 so when things reopened, it's be a big increase on a very small base from the previous quarter.

                              Looking like a possible decent overlay in the opening Irish Poker Masters on Party. €250k GTD for €530 so needs 500 runners. Only 114 in at the moment after 45 mins with another 2 hours late reg. It is a PKO though so would have expected more to reg early as later reg after an hour not best practice.

                              Edit - ignore above, theres 2x Day 1s

                                  The local newspaper prints a couple of random photos from the archives every week. Nice way to sell a couple of extra copies. A photo of my parents, both deceased, that I had never seen was printed this week. Someone who knew my father spotted it and word go back to us. Beautiful photo. RIP Ailish and Joe. Lovely people.

                                    I know Christy Moore is a no brainer for most music fans but the new 1969-1981 retrospective on Tara Records is brilliant.

                                    Several options - I went for the triple vinyl version naturally but got the full digital download version with it too with a load of extra tracks.

                                    Between the sequencing, the liner notes, artwork etc... it's a great package with a ton of classic standards and a bunch of rarities that are hard to access in anything resembling decent quality.

                                    Recommended.

Mary Loo is very fond of that particular line of bullshit.

Just buy the official app. I ran through about three or four mock tests on it and most of the questions came up on the actual test. A far more efficient way to learn.

The book is a waste of time. Just buy the official app. I ran through about three or four mock tests on it and most of the questions came up on the actual test. A far more efficient way to learn.

A slightly risky move as she'd never expressed the merest hint of interest in pyjamas, and the whole idea sounds kinda lame. But they were on the Late Late Show as an example of a cool buy Irish brand, so thats how I got on to them and assumed that because of the price they were better than they looked or sounded. Anyway - and this is the reason for posting this - jaysus, she loved them. They're pretty class - look a bit like a tailored suit in bits, although still pyjamas obv. Also said pyjamas are in like every single blog she follows at the moment. So, if ye are are stuck for choices, that might be a great option, bearing in mind that your mileage may vary. They're not cheap though unfortunately. But I think that feeds through into the quality.
