Prime time interview with Irish ISIS member Lisa Smith from a refugee camp. Lying through her teeth. I hope no misguided liberals think allowing her home would be a good idea. Dangerous individual.

Irish Defence forces had a deal with the Yanks to arrest her, and bring her to Ireland for trial here. ANd they'd be very keen indeed for her to spend a long time in prison.

They were allegedly "very disappointed" when the cabinet refused to allow it.

Think it's hard to move up the ladder if you keep hopping.

Depends on the industry. Know a few heads who've done that management consultancy bollocks and you can usually leverage a promotion up the ladder into each new job, whereas if you stay put they'll milk you for all they can and keep salary low.

I know for solicitors a lot of people in the big firms would adopt a similar approach, with most jumping ship post-training a few times before settling somewhere.

You get one move as a solicitor if you want to get to the top - or you stay on from being a trainee. If you go over to London for experience, that won't count.

You cheapskates have only yourselves to blame. Ryanair was good for a while for short flights. Then all the Irish cute gobshites tried to get smart and started arriving with no check in bag and the max size carry on suitcase that took up half the overhead locker. When enough of these gobshites got together on the same flight then chaos ensued as there wasn’t enough space in the overhead lockers for all of their ridiculously oversized bags. So after queuing up for hours before the check in desk opens in order to be first to fill up the overhead locker above your seat and also above the seat of normal people who just have a normal sized carry on bag, Ryanair finally got sick of you. Well done cheapskates.

The same people probably clap when the plane lands, too.


At least they can’t recline their seats on Ryanair :lol:

The overhead locker is for a small backpack or a handbag. They need to ban these mini suitcases used by selfish cheapskates who don’t want to check a bag. There isn’t enough space in the lockers so tough shit - you have to check your bag.


Plus they're a hazard, the idiots are always knocking them over or tripping people up with them. Just travel with a rugby bag or rucksack :thumbup:

Sports bag can be as packed or empty as you want. Plus, you're rarely asked to put it in the sizing cage, even if you're taking the piss.


True about the cage , I’ve been telling people this for years . I stuff everything I can into a sports bag and rarely check in anything with Ryanair

obviously I'm one of the liberals on the topic of refugees etc but there's no fcukin way she can be allowed back into Ireland unless its to go to jail - she doesn't even seem to be pretending very hard that going there was a bad idea and that ISIS are inherently an evil shower of cnuts ; isn't it still illegal to be a member of the IRA ?

If you want to try and make partner in a big firm, sure. If you want to be a specialist in a big firm, you can move a bit.

And there's always the wide world of smaller firms. Some of the mid-tier and "boutique" commercial firms would be great places to work.

Depends on sector and role/function. Ultimately depends on how the person making the hiring decision interprets the moves. Come up against a naturally conservative character and you're digging yourself out of a hole, which ain't great in an interview situation.

If the moves are sellable, great. But they'd better be at least defendable. Need a rationale.

I know guys who two-yeared their way through their twenties and thirties and are now in senior management positions - albeit in SMEs for the most part
rather than in "the professions" or multinationals/major enterprises.

Know a few who overdid it and are now stuck at levels they will never rise above, surrounded by a peer group who could well be their kids age pretty much. Hard to stay motivated in that scenario, which contributes to their next bout of itchy feet...

I don't know you and if it's not true I will take your word for it.
Do not take it personally but is it not the case that there are no brownie points to be gained in defending a white person?

It's more like a hostel than a boutique hotel but I suspect that's not what you think he's right about. He just needs to stop trying to sell it. Just say there's demand for it and that is why it's going up. He's not the estate agent.

Well, not like a hostel if we're talking about the type of co living linked on here before. What hostels have a cinema and gym as part of the package?

It's common enough for hostels to have a screen and projector to show films. Gym is uncommon I will admit.

Great to see an Irishman win the open yesterday with a nordie caddie. Golf is an all island sport so it felt great. I noticed a difference in the language used - Lowry just spoke about Ireland whereas the nordie golfers spoke about “the country of Northern Ireland” which was interesting. GMac kept trying to say the island of Ireland which was fair.

A screen and a projector is not the same as a purpose built cinema.

Is it really that different? And how many hotels that you know have any sort of cinema facilities? If you want it's a very pleasant hostel with really good facilities but it's still self contained room and bathroom with shared living and cooking facilities. That's the essence of a hostel.

I'm not saying it's like a hostel, I said it was more like a hostel than a boutique hotel. The reason being the shared living and cooking spaces. Difference between hotel and hostel is in a hotel you look after me, in a hostel I look after myself. It's odd that people are taking exception to that.

Having grown quite sick of Bank of Ireland's p1ss poor customer service, I am looking at changing bank. I have both savings and current account with BOI, but no mortgage or other loans.

Does anyone have any particularly good experiences with an Irish bank (lol?) that they would recommend?

Thanks

I use PTSB for the past 28 years and have no issues with them, they are not the most competitive on charges etc but that's not my priority

Have you actually seen what these co-living spaces look like? Have a look at the Quarters ones on YT, they're the German company planning to come in here and build 5,000 beds like it.

They are a mile from a hostel ffs.

Just saying "there's a demand for it" won't cut it. The response is "well duh, homelessness". He shouldn't have said "boutique hotel", as it gives the screaming Marys plenty of ammunition. If some of these are actually build in the city centre there will be enormous demand. I'd have considered it myself a couple of years ago.

The standard of the rooms is excellent. People hear pull down beds and freak out, similar with the word "share" on anything.

Decent room and your own jacks (more than 80% of house shares)
Well maintained common areas
Cool facilities
Cook fúck all in your 20s anyway
Load of like minded types and areas where you can try to convince a Spanish Bird from Google to shag you.


Sounds crap

What do you want?

Comprehensive branch network and low fee options if you keep enough in CA? AIB

PTSB? Low fees ... although they are increasing and you have a list of about a billion items to adhere to to qualify for no(reduced) fees.

BOI? avoid

Cheap CA online only? Revolut for cheap FX or N26 for just no fees.

I don't have an issue with hostels and have stayed in some very pleasant ones on the continent but the reason I said they were more like a hostel than a hotel is that they have SHARED LIVING AND COOKING FACILITIES LIKE A f**king HOSTEL DOES. But it's a fairly inconsequential point, I'll admit.

Co living going strong in other locations like the US, NZ, and Canada, in response to tight housing markets and high rents .... it’s only the hard left cranks and other assorted malcontents in Ireland that don’t want it here

https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/art ... 074532.php

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/proper ... dult-dorms

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... -to-canada

All three cities in question (San Francisco, Auckland and Ottawa) would have left-leaning local governments I think.

Maybe we should send our homegrown, economically illiterate headbangers over to take a look (with a one way ticket)?

Hostels aren't anywhere near these places.

These places generally will fall down to slightly below market rates for rents in an area. So you can "live" like you have a studio or one bed in a city centre, for a couple of hundred euro cheaper. Those at the higher end of the scale like WeLive in Manhatten, will offer pretty luxurious living for less again than equivalent properties.
