I want to attach a board to my wall which is going to hold up weight (around 80kg) but the walls in my house are not very good. I looked up various guides on how to attach things to plasterboard but i'm not sure how to attatch something to the type of wall I have. The picture shows what the wall looks like. It seems to be brick behind a layer of mortar or something which is about 2-3cm thick.

youvegot sand and lime render ,i think. on your wall.maybe remove all the paper an paint layers for a bare wall.then fix any cracks or damage an then redecorate.
then predrill one corner of the board and offer the board to the wall. .when its in positionmark through the hole an drill through the mark with a masonry bit an plug the hole.screw a level an square the board an drill an plug the other corners.
drill an plug more fixings if you need them
