    In the program there was probably the most GAA thing ever in a listing of all the players of the Ballyna Minor team...

      still, hope it works out for you.

        Well he wasn't meant to do the plastering before the electrics, I feel we had carefully discussed that also, but that's a done deal now. So hopefully there's a plan for fixing it.

            Professors of behavioural economics tend to operate on a principle that everything is a bit fucked up. Its those mainstream economists who start with the assumption that everything in the world makes sense as a starting assumption. Ah well, tis done now, and I suppose its reasonably lowkey difficult to get him back in to fix the bits of newly crumbled walls. The walls are ridiculously nice at the moment. Not a bump, not a blemish, to be seen.

              I might need to check the budget! We're hoping your pal Ciaran will make the tiny box kitchen into a star. He seems like he can do anything, and with style. Actually we were hoping he might do the extension in due course also, but that involves finding loads more cash.

Proper cup final game by far the best game of football I saw this year and to be out on a beautiful autumn day in the biggest crowd I've seen in two years was a great buzz.
                Would like to watch a replay of the game, didn't see any signs of an RTE ofr TG4 crew there but I suppose something will turn up on YT at some stage.
                Spent the day in Navan at the Meath County finals myself. County star Vikki Wall put on an exhibition as red hot favs Dunboyne won by 20 points or something outrageous in the womens final. Some top quality from herself and Emma Duggan.

                In the mens game, Wolfe Tones, the 11/4 underdogs, beat red hot favs Dunboyne to win by 3 points but the result never looked in doubt. They also beat defending champions Ratoath in the semi final so they're worthy champions. A dour enough game so thankfully we got a decent amount of action in the women's match.

                Agree on the crowd. Full house in Navan, great to see and great atmosphere.

                  Abbaye was a win and your in race for the BC sprint. Also, BC essentially pay for all euro runners entry and travel expenses, likely 80%+ of total costs are covered.

                      Interesting, that never even crossed my mind that they would subsidise the costs of the foreign contingent.

                      Does that apply in cases like the Melbourne Cup or the HK Vase etc too? Or indeed those megabucks races out in the Gulf? Or Royal Ascot?

                        Likewise will dig out the guy we were recommended when we moved in here.

                        All the Irish guys said that it’s windows out or nothing and the windows were done. He came round, redid the seals and tinkered with a few bits.

                        Obv windows will need to be done at some stage soonish but what he did made a massive difference.

                          It is very common. Melbourne Cup offer no subsidy for foreign runners other than maybe 2 x flights for the owners. Costs 100k or so to ship from Ireland/UK and run in the MC.

                            Makes the whole Vintage Crop raid seem even more daring in retrospect.

                              It's a pity the weather here turns them to such mushy shit.

                              I remember being in Sacramento at this exact time of year, walking down the street shin deep in dry rustly leaves. Was lovely.

                                I think people underestimate just how much good a decent local property tax returns to the place you live in. I realise its not quite the same as your case where people are volunteering, but that effect multiplied is the benefit.

                                Areas just look spectacular when there's a decent amount of money to go on local services. Streets are swept, not a spot of litter anywhere.

                                In Rennes they were repaving the streets every two or three years - a big deal if you travel in anything other than a car as you feel every bump.

                                Every weekend something going on, for free, that everyone could go to. Something family-like in the day time, and younger audience at nighttime. Flying in international exhibitions.

                                Beautiful parks where someone would turn up to take your BBQ coals away (as you might remember). Always thinking about new ways to be fun and exciting.

                                And its a cumulative effect also, as you might build a park one year, a skating place the next year, an ice rink the year after, and at the end of it, you have all the accumulated goodies.

                                My nearly only solid political thought is that local tax is amazing tax. (Obviously providing you also make sure that no area gets left behind.)

                                Don't get me wrong, I think Dublin is a beautiful messy city, love it. I just don't understand how people are so opposed to paying a few quid towards local amenities, as its the biggest benefit going.

                                    Well, SF have pledged to abolish it (presumably replacing it with magic money from the magic money tree). In fairness to the, councils across the land have been competing to see who could reduce their own revenue streams the most by offering the biggest reductions to their constituents.
                                    I paid mine last night and saw that I'd had the maximum allowed reduction, 15%.

                                      Covid cert checks some joke - not one of the places I’ve been in that have asked to look at it have cross referenced it against a form of ID, could just be using a screenshot of someone elses

                                        It's not a perfect system, but it's better than no checks at all. fwiw it was the same in Italy when I was there last month, check for the cert on your phone but no id cross check.

                                        Also, I think the scenario of using someone elses cert would be fairly rare.
                                        It needs Person A to have been responsible enough to get the vaccine, and then be irresponsible enough to lend it to refusenik Person B, whilst ignoring the risk that the subterfuge is caught on a random ID check leading to Person A no longer having a valid cert and all the hassle that that would cause for them.

                                          Only place that looked for other ID with me was the Bord Gais Theatre. Pubs also asked for a phone number, though I'd routinely give a fake number for that kind of stuff anyway.

                                            It's starting to look like we were ahead of the European autumn\winter curve. Case and hospital numbers increasing fast (in a similar way that ours did 2/3 weeks ago) in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands etc.

                                            Not that this is a comforting thing, but we (including the public health experts) were scratching our heads and wondering why we were different from everyone else. Seems that we are likely not.

                                              Slovakia, Czechia, Poland etc all spiking in similar way

                                              But of you go further South, where the weather is still warmer, you don't see the same trends. France, Spain fairly flat and Italy starting to tick up.

                                              I wonder if you chopped Italy up into North vs South, would the North be looking spikier as the weather turns colder. Suspect it would.

                                              I further wonder is a big spike in US numbers (which have been falling for weeks) imminent?

                                                Do people genuinely believe the numbers that are trotted out ? Eamon Ryan got a positive then a negative the next day. Nhpet say pcr test is only .1 percentage wrk h Eamon was a 1000/1 shot then. I know other people who got false positives. Was asked for I’d with my very on Saturday night. I do refuse to wear a mask going for a piss when I’m sitting down without one. People thinking the booster will sort things if double jabbed has not stopped it why would treble or quadruple Jabbed help. I’m going to guess there will be no other type of flu this year just covid and some other cooly named variant.

                                                  Well obviously the numbers are massively under the true number of cases due to asymptomatic cases not detected, people who just ignore symptoms and don't get tested. 80% of cases are mild or asymptomatic.

                                                  We'll probably never know how many though.

                                                  So yeah, the case numbers are clearly far lower than they should be. Hospitalisations and deaths though are going to be on the money.

                                                    Need to roll out that third jab asap. Seems its very effective at reupping protection.

                                                    Read something similar about the flu jab before, that you shouldn't get it too early in the flu season, as it will have effectively waned away by the time the real flu season starts around February.

                                                      We'll probably never know how many though.

                                                      So yeah, the case numbers are clearly far lower than they should be. Hospitalisations and deaths though are going to be on the money.
                                                      Think natural immunity better than they experimental vaccine for those that survive it.

                                                                                Also, I think the scenario of using someone elses cert would be fairly rare.

                                                                                if you’re going to make do it - do it properly or not at all- you don’t even need to check against photo Id - just a bank card or something
                                                                                You only need one person B to get hold of one screenshot and it can be shared with all his/her/Zir anti vac pals.
                                                                                most places don’t even scan just look at the screen you could get a group in o most places all using a screenshot of the 1 covid cert

He's the fucker in this situation. And the other problem is his parents saying - why would poor little johnny have to get vaccinated, covid won't hurt him, as if they don't live in a society where we need some collective actions. Thats why little johnny grows up to be big bastard johnny who doesn't give a fuck about society and probably, accordingly, takes a job in finance.

And the parents. Its people a bit like us. Tell kids in secondary school - its be vaccinated or get weekly PCR tests and no school without them, and we win the war.

However when buying the multipack the Tayto guys put more in the pack. I’m not sure if the taste gaps are big enough for me to overlook this . So going forward I’m in Camp Tayto . Kings crisps Multipacks better up their game and throws a few extra crisps or they lose my business.

Which is, I think, a valid use of antibiotics, even if a viral cold itself can't be treated by something designed to treat bacterial infections!

However when buying the multipack the Tayto guys put more in the pack. I’m not sure if the taste gaps are big enough for me to overlook this . So going forward I’m in Camp Tayto . Kings crisps Multipacks better up their game and throws a few extra crisps or they lose my business.
