Tom there loads of accidents on the farms or rural Ireland a year,the last one a couple months ago was a father and son both over come by fumes when mixing their slurry ,methane,both died .Your friend being a "blow in" wouldn't have made the headlines ,the only way is that his family were locals and then by word of mouth .For example this morning a guy died at 93 years,where he and his wife lived they had 3 members of their family living in the immediate area,he passed at 8am and by 930am we had a call from of Kay's cousins.Now the funeral is on Saturday morning and it will a big one as there was 10 children and they are all parents ,our village will close down ,even with the weather we are getting it's going a big farewell. That's the Irish way .

And I reckon that Arsenal flogged Petr Chec to Chelsea on the proviso he leakes more goals each match than Chelsea score....

Wednesday garden day ,other half off to pitch/put morning and after lunch Bridge in Mitchelstown...so what has brought tears of joy to me this "sunny " day? Migrants is still running,now the tree huggers union ( liberals) want to close a detention centre that hold migrants (female type) cos the government who sold it to a private sector company have toooo many MEN working there ,what do they want Martians? The next one near to my heart as a traveler is the showing of boarding passes at airports , here's an example about rip off UK airports,we visit our son in Frankfurt,so on return their duty free/Europeen shop sells 2 bottles of Jameson whisky for 28 euro,here it's 25euro a bottle.......say no more .The same is in the states,petrol station in Las Vegas fags $20 for 200 ,duty free the same ,it seems the Germans are the only one who don't rip the traveling public off ?? Unless you know different??

Has Mourinho shot his bolt,City made that Chelsea team look quite ordinary.....and as a friend of mine used to say "how much" ....the salaries they earn are unbelievable...but that's football......I see that my favourite internet company (Amazon) are having labour problems,seems they are working only 80 hours a week and they have a Stazi type system for staff members ?? But Jeff Bezos the founder has increased his personal fortune to $47 billion ,so he's a happy bunny,just think of what you could buy with that lot( a small country or 2) well off to sort my chickens out ,it's like the Great Escape them getting out !,

Interesting statistic. The Germans took in 450,000, yes 450,000 immigrants, last year. The single biggest number within the EU by far. Another statistic. They recorded over 250 attacks on asylum/immigration centres in their country in the same period. It seems NONE of the politicians, no matter where they hail from, listen to their electorate.
