Winter tyres just on the rear of FWD

The lack of snow

Blackrock Boys engage in some of the greatest horseplay of all time.

It's because they fear the unfamiliar, and what they don't understand. The great majority of the Irish are of an 80% middle ground group. The 10% from whichever end, promo the type of reaction you are seeing here. Nor can they help mentioning the other end of the spectrum either, as they recognise t

Burning the Poppy - A thread.

As a small reminder, once a year, of the critical role the UK played, twice, in saving Europe from itself and from tyranny, when Britain stood bravely alone on the side of the angels, to give us the free, prosperous continent we all enjoy today, wearing a poppy is a very fitting act. More widespread

Blackrock Boys engage in some of the greatest horseplay of all time.

There is no such thing, and such a statement just reveals discrimination against these lads with another reason as its real motivation. Accents are simply different. It all depends on what you are used to. I am sure some of those Rock boys would find a northern accent strange, or, a Kerry one for ex

Winter tyres just on the rear of FWD

[It's mostly in the head. ] It is. Car people like to be messing with cars. Not changing to winter tyres leaves them liable to be mistaken for non car people, and without something to worry about,or discuss as motoring aficionados. How much snow do we get in Ireland? How many days are we driving

Should boards.ie reinstate the rule against multiple accounts?

Multiple accounts are fine as long as you stay within the spirit of the law, and dont have them crisscrossing in the same thread. Necessary even for different forums. Didnt realise they were legal now, but a blind eye has sensibly been turned to them for a long while now

Blackrock Boys engage in some of the greatest horseplay of all time.

Indeed. They are Irelands elite. Leaders of tomorow in business, politics, law, finance,etc, and so by definition, are not the same as the average Paddy. Which makes it easy to laugh at any characteristic that highlights their difference from the rest of society, and rather unfairly too. Yes they l

Prince Andrew in jep?

These are the kind of dilemmas you can be presented with if you are a Prince. But look, we've all been there : sex with an underage girl, or go for a pizza in Woking. I think Pizza Express has gone downhill a little, and not sure that Woking has anything much to recommend it at all, but all in all

Degree from IT or University, is there a difference?

Which is great if its a hands on job and for people who want to do that kind of work. A lot of jobs, and to a great extent, the higher paying ones, are not hands on, and in that case, university degree grads are more likely the better candidates

Degree from IT or University, is there a difference?

I would counter that it makes no difference. Possibly for civil engineers but not even sure if that is the case, or if it is, why it is so. Engineers Ireland or chartership doesnt matter a whit in Ireland

Ireland Team Talk XI: Team of nervoUS MOD warning Post 1

We have. And its that nothing went wrong. It was always going to come down to one game against a team who are normally better than us, and were likely to beat us. So no surprise at the result. Nothing went wrong. Nothing malfunctioned. No systemic fault. The result was as all should have expected
