1-1 draw ?, think spurs won the 2nd leg 1-0 at the lane. Listened to the great Philip Green commentate on the game on the radio, he wasn't biased .... much !. To my shame I haven't been to see Cork city in ages, must go along this season, bit of a GAA head during the summer.
Thats right, I was a 4 year old up in the stands and it was baltic. We knew Barry Kehoe very well, he could have been a superstar.

Hi, been on here a bit but finally registered! Long time Spurs fan....and one of those that got to see the debuts of both Kaboul and Bale against St. Pat's! COYS!
I was there myself. Greeted the team off the bus. Think it was Bent's debut too? Keane with the winner, you couldnt make it up.

So my local team in Roscommon, Boyle Celtic, have got to the semi final of the FAI Junior Cup and are one game away from playing at the Aviva. This is massive for them. So much so that they've released a song. Nothing quite like jinxing it, eh? Thing is, this song is now number 2 in the iTunes download charts having just passed out Ed Sheeran... If anyone fancies throwing just over a euro at it to get it to number 1 you'll play your part in one hell of a story. If it's any help, the two goals in the quarter final (ended 2-2 and Boyle won on pens) were scored by a Mick Corrigan, a mad Spurs fan.

iphones at the ready to topple that upstart Eddie
and proclaim Boyle Celtic the iTunes Kings.

So what’s the deal with broadband in Ireland. Is there one? My mother is moving back part time and needs to get something sorted for her house there. Was quoted by Sky €55 a month for broadband plus basic tv package making it nearly €80. Add sports and it’s over €100 a month. And she won’t be there a lot of the time. It’s up in Boyle, Roscommon so from previous experience it always feels like technology hasn’t kicked in yet, but seriously, is she missing the obvious option?

Just renewed my sky package with them a couple of days ago.

The renewal bumped it up to €142.50 but after a quick call it is now €99 something.

We get Sky tv + Movies + Sports
Crap wifi
Calls included in package are....
Irish landlines unlimited
UK and world Landlines unlimited
USA Mobiles unlimited as apparently they are on the same system as their landlines,

Two miles either side of our little township there is fibre broadband, hopefully within the next 18 months
we can be on it too.

There are many providers, Virgin, Eir and independent operators all looking for business so negotiate.

Hth

Virgin haven’t reached Boyle yet. I’ll let you do the jokes. Eir have had shit reviews round that way.

https://www.bonkers.ie/ Excellent price comparison website.

If she is living in a town, there will almost certainly be broadband. Fibre broadband? Not sure.
