    It dealt with the rake of property deals in the late noughties that went belly up.

    Did our learned friends get involved?
    Looks like it, doesn't it!?

      I’ve watched all of Normal People with the wife- I think it’s a beautiful piece of TV and two standout performances from young actors, and a marvellous adaptation of the book.

          Yes, I was there that day.

          ​​​​​​​Between the crush getting in and out and the crowd on the roof at the School end, it was a miracle no one was killed.

                And the post-match crush was still going strong in Phibsboro nine years later, the night the Maltesers were sent packing 8-0

                  Would the expanse books be still worth reading after watching TV show for a few years?

                    Salisbury Poisonings - compulsive watching - Anne-Marie Duff is one superb actress and rest of cast are also excellent

                          My reading rate is pretty atrocious these days. I did manage the three body trilogy last year and recently started ancillary justice which is first of a series. But I'll have a look and put them in my wish list. I badly need to cut down my screen time scrolling through nothing

                            I'm in the same boat myself, my difference, youtube watching (game playthroughs especially), black holes for time. Have a dirty habit of starting books and then abandoning them if not hooked. However I'm glad to say I recently bought the first of the Troy trilogy by David Gemmell and am really enjoying them, easy to read and a good twist on the whole Troy story.

                              The Last Dance doc on Michael Jordan/Chicago Bulls on Netflix was a good watch. hops around a bit too much at times through the years but really interesting

                                Loved it. Basketball was a massive craze in Kerry in the 90's, everyone was a bulls fan. It's interesting to watch the mindset of these elite players like Jordan, Roy Keane is similar in soccer maybe without the talent Jordan had, Kelly Slater in surfing, but it was win at all costs and fu#k the collateral damage. I wound up feeling sorry for Jordan. It looked like a joyless life he had in the pursuit of perfection. He was an absolute freak though, even if you knew nothing about basketball, you'd still have to sit back and admire his athletic ability.
