    Road side small wind turbine, where to get??

    Where can I source one of those small roadside wind turbines (like the one just before the Mahon exit heading westbound on the ring road). Any “mini” wind turbines I see online are over 1.2 metre in diameter. I can’t seem to find a vendor for the roadside ones I’ve seen.

    Well, the ‘white nights’ of summer are rolling in and NI marching season will be soon upon us. Would the nationalist community north AND south have the foresight to band together and say to the loyalist community...March away lads, anywhere you want, unmolested through any of previous...

    Do these numpties have no imagination?

    On the radio this morning, adverts: Allianz slogan = We Cover Courage AIB slogan = We Back Brave Good to see the sales and marketing courses in universities are at the cutting edge. It seems to be a policy of copy and paste. 4 years well spent in college it seems if this is the level of their...

    Tracey Kennedy. Time’s up. Did she do alright?

    Helped get rid of frank and other dead wood like Bob Ryan, and chaperoned in the new regime. That’s something at least.

    Oceans Apart: Greed, Betrayal and Pacific Island Rugby

    Brilliant hour long documentary on the disgusting treatment of Pacific islands rugby by World Rugby. Homeless islanders playing international test rugby and not being paid. Training in their bare feet. Not even footballs to play with. Shame on you IRFU and World Rugby. Worse than FIFA. I hope...

    Ryanair flight change policy. The fu***ers!

    The new Ryanair flight change policy is a complete joke. I booked flights at Christmas, in good faith, and now I am being hammered with a hefty charge for changing my flights. Yet someone who took a punt and gamble who booked a flight in June (and now doesn't want/cant travel) is being allowed...

    Snooker masters 2020

    Just watching the masters on BBC two and, my word, the ref is smoking hot. How are Higgins and carter focusing on their play. Let’s just say it’s not your usual balding grey haired fart. Yum yum.

    Energy saving light bulb query.

    Has anybody any knowledge of why energy saving light bulbs get dangerously hot? I use these in almost every room in the house and I went to take one out recently that had been on for a few hours previously and it was scalding hot. Even dangerously so. It was mostly the ballast part, the glass...

    Single carriage bus lane down the centre of roads??

    Why is there no appetite to design Corks bus lane network with a dedicated single bus lane down the centre of our roads, even its on our arterial routes around the city that can handle design?? I have always found it ridiculously strange that engineers are dead set on sticking a bus lane up...

    Someone in the Irish indo has it in for Duffy.

    No doubt about it. Since Gavin Duffy announced his interest in the presidential election, the Irish indo has run a suite of stories with what appears to be a sole purpose of undermining the man. Stories range from his involvement with the hunting fraternity to his ownership of his family home...
