Get It Off Your Chest


#1

Some of you may have seen me post this through twitter but my friend and fellow Dublin season ticket holder, Siobhán Geraghty, was the victim of a hit-and-run outside her house in Clonsilla last Sunday.

Thankfully, she has had a really good week and the prospects of her making a full recovery has much improved.

Fingers crossed that the person who carried out this act will have the decency to hand themselves in to the Gardaí

That’s brilliant news Dave .
Unfortunately two hopes of the scum who hit her handing themselves in voluntary , taxi driver who dropped her off best bet of catching them I would think .


#3

Great to hear Siobhan is improving. Please God she continues her recovery and hopefully our lads can assist in that by giving her lots of reasons to smile this Summer.


#4

Sorry to hear about that terrible incident Dave, I really wish your friend a full recovery. Hard to believe in a quiet estate, I know it well, my sister lives there


#5

Cheers lads, the Gardaí made an arrest yesterday and were questioning a man in his 40s so hopefully if it is him, he will be dealt with ASAP & we can all concentrate on Siobhan’s recovery.

#7

My best wishes too. Great to hear she is recovering.


#8

DCR, good to hear, long may it last! Hope her recovery is full and healthy!

“Clip by Muscular Christianity”??! Had to laugh at that, he was originally agreeing to pay €100 to the Mayo team! :laughing:

What’s the deal with these compressed deodorants?? What a load of nonsense! They are [allegedly] squeezing extra nicely smelling stuff into smaller containers … but why?

Is there a worldwide shortage of standard size deodorant aerosol cans? Is the reduced size really going to make a difference to your bathroom cabinet? Perhaps you can buy a much bigger razor … or more moisturiser?

But the biggest nonsense? You are not going to spray yourself with the reduced equivalent to offset the compression. For instance if you normally take 9 sprays and you buy the brilliant new 33% extra compressed product you are not going to take just 6 sprays. It is just not going to happen! You will always take your 9 sprays - and may even take a sly 10th. So then the whole compressed deodorant idea is futile. You are actually using even more.deodorant and paying a little more too - for the extra.

So what happens is you are apparently getting more deodorant but are also using more so will buy more so it will cost you more. So it’s a bad deal all round. My advice? Stay away from compressed deodorant - it stinks.

Smaller cans = less spent on manufacturing = greater profits.


#16

I see the ongoing psycho-drama which is our relationship to 1916 is today playing itself out again in the form of a remembrance service for British soldiers killed during Easter Week.

Fascinating.


#17

Less waste? As far as I’m aware deodarant cans etc can’t be recycled


#18

Think its a con job tbh , its like them making the chocolate bars smaller for calorie purposes . You can’t get a decent bar of chocolate these days , those multi packs are a disgrace . They should have two categories . Adult & children size . I’m all on for preventing obesity but at least allow people to have a choice without ripping them off as well :confused:


#19

Fat chance of that happening …
