Demolitions starting on Ronans Tara Street development.

What's getting knocked exactly? Which buildings like?

The pub is all that's remaining in the corner block from Tara Street Station to the newish office building beside the IT offices. That newish building will be demoloshed as part of the Metro plams to forma new street level concourse between the metro and Tara Street DART station.

That's all I was concerned about. :thumbup:

Any anecdotal stuff I've seen about it is in pain management for chronic conditions, rather than as an actual cure for the condition itself.

That said, there are a ridiculous number of products with CBD oil being pushed. I don't think there's much regulation around it yet. Read somewhere. Very vague as to whether most of the application/delivery mechanisms even work.

I bought CBD gum this weekend as it happens because I saw the USPGA are banning it on foot of concerns it might be PE and suspicion that Woods and Mickelson are taking it. I'm sitting exams and haven't noticed any change in mood or improvement in cognitive ability.

It’s all obviously a huge scam and I feel sorry for the people buying it, but not the people selling it.

Pretty easy target, you'd have thought. Shouldn't take too much to wind up some people in either community and they'll just do the rest off their own bat.

Time for the annual car insurance hunt. Any particular provider jumping out recently as not being totally sh*t?

Currently with the AA, fully comprehensive, able to drive any other car, which suits me. They sent a renewal quote which was exactly 11 cent cheaper than last year, no accidents, no penalty points, no claims etc.

Edit: Right, just tried liberty insurance and for almost exactly the same cover, its half the price. Literally from about €1,000 to just over €540. Double checked the details I put in were correct, all fine. Something screwy there, can't be that random.

No thicker than people who believe that Trump is non-interventionist or that Brexit will allow the British people to take back control and solve the social ills in their country or that having the Healy-Raes in the Dáil is good for national policy. There are thick people everywhere.

There's probably more potential for emotional arguments in NI society than in other similar countries. People don't need to be convinced of stuff by a longer campaign of constant exposure to contrarian viewpoints etc. There's plenty of petrol already there, the shit stirrers just need to flick in the occasional match.

on this topic - I moved into our gaff last year - there's a dividing wall with our neighbours that will probably fall down soon. They've got a huge tree by the wall that has branches coming into our back garden and very close to windows in upstairs bedroom. Personally I'm not too bothered but missus next door has brought up with my missus about rebuilding the wall. We haven't discussed it with them but it'll come up at some point, I wouldn't put anything towards the costs until they did something about the tree - the roots of which are probably causing the wall to resemble a Kerry full back line (for Zappa if he's about)

You are legally allowed to cut off any branches growing over/into your garden, provided you give your neighbour the branches (his property).

I'm with 123. Worked out cheaper than Liberty for me by a couple of hundred euro.
It's not random but a lot is based on their risk profile and the cohorts of customers they want on their books.

Talked to AA, got it down to €820 from €1,000 for no real reason. Just copped that Liberty are having a flash sale this week which would explain why they're in the €550 range. Excellent.

Anyone else currently renewing should have a look.

The reason they dropped it is because you rang them. They're still making margin.
Companies bank on people accepting the first price offered. You can be sure they're still making margin, even at the reduced price.

Read this on the torygraph today.

Could this happen? It would be quite a bitter pill to swallow to keep an open border:

Quote:
The Irish backstop was designed jointly by the EU and the Irish and British governments to protect against the return of an Irish border, but if it backfires by triggering a ‘no deal’ outcome, it will have become entirely self-defeating.

Because if ‘no deal’ becomes the default position of the British government, then Mr Varadkar can expect the choice to be framed between accepting the long-term risk of a ‘no deal’ - after a hunt for alternative arrangements fails or a putative time-limit expires - over the imminent chaos of a ‘no deal’ this year.

It is this trade-off that sees some EU member states speculating privately that Mr Varadkar might yet agree to a ‘time-limit’ to the backstop, as the pressure starts to bite in autumn. The Irish side remains adamant it will not budge.


Still, the EU are fully expecting Mr Johnson to put the heat on Mr Varadkar who - as his own central bank warned last week - faces a four percentage point drop in GDP in the first year of a ‘no deal’ and average incomes losses per head of Irish population estimated at €720 (£640) - seven times those of Germany.

The EU remains foursquare behind Dublin, but at the same time it is making very clear - as we report today - that in a ‘no deal’ it will expect Ireland to live up to its obligations as a member of the EU single market.

Mr Varadkar accepts these obligations, but in a ‘no deal’ is still presented with an invidious choice between erecting a trade border in Ireland, or diluting Irish single market status by accepting checks between Ireland and the Continent.

Mr Varadkar and the Commission prefer to skate over this hard choice, arguing instead that the British government must live up to the “letter and spirit” of the Good Friday Agreement and do what is necessary to avoid a land border.

For me if the choice is a border on the island or an open customs border to mainland Europe, it's the latter every time.

The border will be on the island, they have left slip plenty of times that they are preparing for it. Putting a customs border between us and Europe is unworkable

Very simple.

Make absolutely no effort to check goods leaving the Republic. Make every effort to check goods entering the Republic and choke the kip.

Joining Schengen could happen down the line but that makes the border permanent. I imagine they will keep it temporary for now and let reality sink in up North.

That's what baffles me...what did they think was going to happen at Dover on April 2nd, will happen there on November 1st ?

Dig directly down on your side of the wall and hack the shit out of any roots that have grown across to your side. :thumbup:

It makes the usual mistake of assuming that all the blame for failure to reach a deal lies with everybody other than themselves.

The CTA means there will be no problem with the movement of people across the border.

Irish customs will designate a number of road crossings for checking incoming freight,with strict penalties for those who try to avoid.

They will ignore freight going north.

Neighbour disputes about tree encroachment are more hassle than they're worth.

Are you saying that the Citizens Information Board is incorrect ?

You do not have a right to cut down such a tree without the consent of your neighbour. Overhanging trees or encroaching roots may be regarded as a nuisance and you are entitled to cut back the overhanging or encroaching branches or roots to the boundary line.

These siptu striking healthcare peripheral workers are an utter disgrace. An illegal strike without going to through the labour court and they expect us to believe “it’s not about the money”. Vulnerable sick patients are going to suffer serious cancellations because of siptu playing their political games.

I doubt the strike is illegal, as the unions assets could be at risk if it was.

I do agree that we need to look again at some of the legal rights that unions have.
