I too grew up in Portadown, my experiences were very different. We were put out of our house in Redmanville in the early 70s and forced to move to the Garvaghy Road. The nationalist population in Portadown was most certainly discriminated against. Anyhow some of my family members contributed to changing the look and shape of the town  ;)

In NI the problem is that if a person who is vetted by Access NI they have a certificate to show that they can work for a particular organisation with young people and vulnerable adults it is a once off check with no annual re-certification required.  In my last job, I held an Access NI certificate from they were first introduced until I left, period of around 20 years.  At no point was I required to be re-checked, this is general practice.  So, in NI, an organisation can only be sure that a person has been recently vetted when they first join.  An on-going checking system was planned to introduced to it became too complicated and was abandoned.

Not quite true, I recently had to have vetting renewed through the club. Saying that I also have Access NI clearance through work which I completed perhaps about 10 years ago.

Oh f**k!

Only saw the last couple of minutes but the referee gave St Brigidís a few very soft frees, especially the one for the equaliser.

Finally got round to seeing The Death of Stalin this evening, excellent it was too.

Caught some of About Time on RTE earlier and heard this played in The background.

Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther is back in Prussian Blue, the 12th book in the series.
It's as good as his best, a great read.

Read it recently and it is very good.

Anyone watched Norsemen on Netflix? It's a Norwegian comedy that's been described as a cross between the Office and Game of Thrones.
