    What kicked off the feud in the first place? I thought the Monk was largely retired after his robberies. And he wasn't involved in drugs like the other fellas?

    Must be mad having all the loots and not being able to do anything with it.

      Thanks for the links lads and DP for the necessary.

        Go through the Dunphy podcast archive... He has done a few interviews with Nicola Tallant, News of the World crime reporter... she fairly spells it all out AFAIR

          So did I but it seems he had his patch and was at least getting tributes as figurehead for little or no risk to him personally, Don Fanucci style. I also didnt know his nephew Gary was so well in with Kinahan until he slipped up trying to get Kinahan killed(what a ridiculous mistake that botched hit was when Jamie Moore got the bullet instead (and only in the leg!). So Gerry definitely played his part in keeping alliances and smoothing over disputes and keeping relative peace before they messed it all up.

          Yeah desperate all this money and can never travel easy or trust anyone or anything.

            I called it AuZooschwitz. It’s actually not funny ( IT IS) . I love the boat trip over as I go on a rant.

            Just an example of what went on.

            1. A Camel killed a Donkey that was bothering it. Right in front of the kids there – you can google this. An example of what happens to Bullys. The Donkey was literally being an ASS and bothering it constantly. Camel bites it in the neck DEAD ASS.
            2. The Baltic sea froze over, and a fox walked over the frozen sea to Helsinki Zoo (which is on an island) and Killed 16 Flamingos He actually only killed 2 but the other 14 died from shock. (true story) I thought it was hysterical that 14 could die of shock. – Hey Tom I’m having a cardiac arrest, me too, me too, me too me too.
            3. They put some seals down due to illness and there were two left got depressed so they killed them I was laughing at this thinking of a convo. Hello Mr Seal how are you. FINE FINE, not a bother, lovely aroma of springtime, put down that needle FFS I’M FINE.


            Sorry vegans

                  I think they vastly underestimate how difficult it is to shoot at a target never mind in a crowded area, and with all the adrenaline pumping. Sure look at the guy who tried to take out Gillian. Shoddy work Ted.

                      I see the kids of Tom Moore, the 100-year-old general in the UK, brought him on holidays in the middle of a pandemic, from which he picked up pneumonia and subsequently covid and has now died. fucking kids man.

                        Fine piece of meat you have there Conor...

                        The bone makes it too big for a pan, so as said, slowly bring it up to rare in an oven, then finish to med rare on the bbq getting that nice crust...nom nom nom, i like the fat rendered in rib eyes so would even go a few degrees over than what i would with say a fillet. Use your meat thermometer.
                        This too shall pass.

                          stats haha. Ah they made a dogs dinner of the Regency. Absolutely no need for the storm troopers. Just the sight of them whipped up a frenzy and muddied the waters. They were away like a rat up a drainpipe once the place was stormed. they were working on old info coming in when they did. The 2 already inside one in costume the other low key walking about in the calm should have been enough with a getaway outside.
                          Credit where due, not enough was made of the key fob for the back gate into the estate rather than the busy whitehall road, that was Gerry all over. I didnt even know there was a back gate. I investigated a couple days later and drove straight into a garda layup!.

                              Saw an article there that they are fairly sure Gerry was the getaway driver and when Kinahan legeed it he was faced with the fire door or back door exit choice. Had he taken the opposite one he would have been face to face with Hutch...

                                Worth the risk in my opinion. If I was 100 and able to go on holidays I would be trying to do it, not hang on to see if I'm around to go next year.

                                  Have nothing to really back it up but my feeling is his family (or parts of) tried to milk his fame to the nth degree. His "autobiography" came out mere months after his fundraising and his twitter account was obviously managed very carefully.

                                  Obviously don't know the full details but neither him nor his family should have been in Barbados.

                                    I’d say it’s a cert there’s been a few people out there sick of waiting for their inheritance who “accidentally “ infected their elderly parents.

                                          I use it most weekends, enjoy making the dough but will probably need to get a mixer for the big loads whenever there are more people around.
                                          Hardest part for me is getting the right amount of flour to stop the pizza sticking to the peel without having raw flour cooked, and also trying to stop people from putting too many toppings on.

                                            I always had a vague knowledge of the whole Kinahan/Hutch fued but reading all the different articles over the last few days really gave a much greater insight into it that I just didn't know about.

                                            At so many points, I couldn't help but keep thinking back to The Wire.

                                            Is Danny boy our very own real life Stringer Bell?

                                              Would you use semolina instead of the flour on the peel?

                                                There’s definitely an element of underestimating the difficulty in general. I think it’s also the fact they these lads are often picking up whatever gun is available and have close to zero practice or experience.

                                                                              Only a true golfer will understand these: 1. Don't buy a putter until you've had a chance to throw it. 2. Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing. 3. When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls. 4. If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there. 5. The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing. 6. No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse. 7. The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all of your many other errors. 8. Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot. 9. A golf match is a test of your skill against your opponent's luck. 10. It is surprisingly easy to hole a fifty foot putt - for a 10. 11. Counting on your opponent to inform you when he breaks a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his own haircut. 12. Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts. 13. It's not a gimme if you're still 5 feet away. 14. The shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree. 15. You can hit a two acre fairway 10% of the time and a two inch branch 90% of the time. 16. If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age. 17. Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three. 18. When you look up, causing an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again. 19. Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe. 20. If you want to hit a 7 iron as far as Tiger Woods does, simply try to lay up just short of a water hazard. 21. To calculate the speed of a player's downswing, multiply the speed of his back-swing by his handicap, i.e. back-swing 20 mph , handicap 15, downswing = 300 mph. 22. There are two things you can learn by stopping your back-swing at the top and checking the position of your hands: (1) how many hands you have and (2) which one is wearing the glove. 23. Hazards attract; fairways repel. Keep this in mind. 24. A ball you can see in the rough from 50 yards away is not yours. 25. If there is a ball on the fringe and a ball in the bunker, your ball is in the bunker. If both balls are in the bunker, yours is in the footprint. 26. It's easier to get up at 6:00am to play golf than at 10:00am to mow the lawn. 27. A good drive on the 18th hole has stopped many a golfer from giving up the game. 28. Golf is the perfect thing to do on Sunday because you always end up having to pray a lot. 29. A good golf partner is one who's always slightly worse than you are. 30. If there's a storm rolling in, you'll be having the game of your life. 31. Golf balls are like eggs. They're white. They're sold by the dozen. And you need to buy fresh ones each week. 32. It's amazing how a golfer who never helps out around the house will replace his divots, repair his ball marks, and rake his sand traps. 33. If your opponent has trouble remembering whether he shot a six or a seven, he probably shot an eight (or worse).

                                                                                                    Got myself a few of the pizza screens to try the weekend.

                                                                                                        Comment

                                                                                                              Got myself a few of the pizza screens to try the weekend.

                                                                                                              But I have a solid aluminum one, I think thats better than the one with holes... The problem is the time it takes for people to get their toppings on after I get the pizza onto the peel.
