Exactly. An airline boss can probably win a war against his own pilots, but the cost may be unpayable.

Ryanair has been a Teflon brand till now. But this schedule & pilots' controversy feels like it's going on a few days, at least, too long.

This ad is almost as good as the football film itself; amazing what people watched. A turnout of the local fire brigade, & performing dogs.

That's absolutely fantastic. Oldest moving pics of Irish football I assume. Was this at the Oval ?

That was great. Slight shame they can't just send diggers down & dredge it all up for us to gawp at.

RIP Lt. Col. Stanislav Petrov, the Soviet officer who in 1983 decided that a computer warning of an American ICBM strike was a false alarm.

However, a significant Irish broadcaster - Sky - values GAA enough to invest in the rights, & showed today's final.

I think I agree with this; not just practically, but culturally & psychologically too. Our safety is up to us.

Very much so, though the area is a bit cleaner than it used to be

I'd love to but nobody wants to buy my flat! 2 viewings in as many months. I might have to start lying about it.

This is round the corner from where I live. Luckily, my flat is on the market.

I especially liked this article as it mentions the 1st international I attended, the 1-1 against Scotland in 1982 where Healy made his debut

Are journalists vultures on a day like this? It's something I & all my colleagues have been called. This is a very good thread & discussion.
