Wrong place mate
Metropole @Juhniallio? There’s a fantastic chipper across the road if you get a bit peckish later on.


Is there any decent place to eat outside chippers in Cork mate?


Wrong place ffs :disappointed:


The emperor of Japan wouldn’t be ordering a batter burger supper with a couple of potato pies mate

Is this the Cark weirdo thread?




Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan.


an awful gurrier, you’d know by the head on him


Bate the woman outside the front of the house and told the judge it was she assaulted him and that her black eye came about when she slipped into his left hand. :smile:


Typical Cark royalist type so?


A Cork mother has said her family is facing a bleak Christmas this year after her 14-year-old son accidentally spent her entire month’s wages playing a FIFA video game.

The Cork woman said she purchased PlayStation’s FIFA 18 game for her 14-year-old son on her debit card.

However, this led to her son unknowingly purchasing points while playing the football video game.

When she went to withdraw money from her bank account, she was informed that she had insufficient funds.

After calling her bank, the Cork mother discovered that her entire month’s wages were gone, and she was informed that she had lost her bonus too.

The family is now facing a cash-strapped Christmas as a result.

Speaking to PJ Coogan on Cork’s 96FM on Thursday, the woman - who does not wish to be named - said that her son is up upset that he has been unable to leave his bedroom.

The woman is now issuing a warning to other families to be aware of purchasing points, as she claims that she did not see an alert as the money was being deducted from her card.

“I get paid monthly so my pay cheque went in last Friday for four weeks’ wages and they took the whole month’s pay out of the card,” she said.

“He just didn’t understand but every 10 points was costing him more money. I think you need the points to move players but I am not aware of how it works.

“When purchasing the game or playing it they don’t tell you that this has a cost element. He didn’t have to do anything or click anything to activate my card.

“He never knew that when he was clicking away the money was being taken out of my account.”

She added: “I went down to the bank to get money out. I was told I had insufficient funds. I was just after being paid and I didn’t understand what was wrong so then I rang the bank.

“They said PlayStation was constantly moving money from my account. It ended up being my month’s pay.

“I contacted PlayStation and they told me that it was an adults’ game. I explained he was 14 and he didn’t understand he was playing with money.

“He didn’t have to do anything or click anything to activate my card.”

The concerned mother said she wants other parents to be aware, especially at this time of year when they may be planning to purchase similar games.

“Maybe there was [a lock or warning system in place] but my 14-year-old son didn’t see it. He did not have to put in card details or anything as my card was already registered.

“This was my first Christmas working full time and then to go to your bank account and find it empty with the whole month’s pay and overtime in the buildup to Christmas just gone is horrendous.

“I had to take my son out of school after speaking to the bank so that he could go home and take everything offline as money was still going out of my account."

She said her son has been so upset by the situation that he has stayed in his room. His mother said he has become withdrawn and is blaming himself.

“He reckoned he has spoiled Christmas for his family. I can’t even get him to school,” she said.

“There is no point in giving out to him because he is punishing himself more than I could ever have imagined."

PlayStation have a number of security measures in place including parental controls to prevent in-app purchasing.

However, they warn that all customers must take every precaution to protect their personal details.

Guidelines on parental controls can be found here and guidelines on safety and security can be found here.


That’s not funny.


Fifa Ultimate Team that is.


How would you blow that much on it?


Very easily. You buy “packs” to make a better team. Packs are basically gambling. There’s a chance you’ll get good players but chances are slim.


Another fucking moron who wants to be absolved of any personal responsubility and to put all the blame on the giant evil corporation

Truth is she put her card details and afterwards paid no heed to either that or what her son was doing. The son must’ve playing a serious amount of FUT and yerwan never checked her balance or put on the controls. So clearly her fault and not Sony’s


Would it state that on the packaging of the product - “extra charges may apply” etc ?

To be fair she thought she was just buying a game in a single one off purchase (like most people would I’d imagine).

Absolute sickener for her to lose all that money but sadly she has nobody to blame but herself. The young fella must have just been sat in his room playing it morning, noon and night.


David Meyler should step in here and settle the bill.
