    OK I've got a Samsung WMN5090AE (http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/conte...~Televisions~st~AV+Furniture~make~Samsung.htm) powered wall mount in order to mount a Samsung LE46M87 (http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/...ype=tftlcd&model_cd=LE46M87BDX/XEU&fullspec=F) telly.

    I was planning on mounting on the (exposed brickwork) chimney breast in my house.
    I've just got three quick questions.
    a) The Telly weighs about 25Kg and the wall mount another 20-odd, will my chimney be an OK fixing point (the wallmount has 10 fixing screws on a mounting plate 71cm wide by 25.5cm tall)?
    b) Should I be aiming to drill the wholes for the rawl plugs into the brick or the mortar between the bricks, I'm guessing the Bricks themselves, especially for the top set of screws which will be under tension.
    c) Will the supplied rawl plugs be appropriate for brick work (they are described as being appropriate for concrete and wood) or should I get some different ones.

    Cheers
