Re: Ulster v Sharks Friday May 20th 7:35pm BBC2NI / TG4 / Premier Sports 1 / URC TV / Super Sport

From here in Bangor, I take the train for anything in the city centre. Read the paper on the way. Or heading to the airport, free journey there and back and no parking costs. Couldn't whack it with a big stick. Bit of a shame you can't take the train to the International (or Dublin airport for that...

Re: Vote early, vote often.

Comparison between Northern Ireland and Ukraine? Eastern part of Ukraine deliberately populated by Russia with Russians so that there is another rationale, in addition to the historical, for considering it as a part of Russia. Parallel to the Plantation? I know it's far from an exact parallel but is...

https://www.translink.co.uk/industrialaction As things stand, no buses running between Tuesday 17th - Monday 23rd May, something to factor in for travelling to/from the game.

Re: What are you reading?

Just finished Sean O'Brien's autobiography (well, listened to the audiobook, from the library, via Libby. Give it a try) and it wasn't the worst one I've read. Like the others, it simply becomes a list of his most interesting matches and some extra comments (I would have liked a lot more). He has ha...

If I was one of the other contestants, I'd feel a bit peeved that, for political reasons, I was singing for second place at best.
