If all else fails, drink it from the sky. I’m in the part of North Dublin where the Catholic Church is a large land owner so I’ll be grand :thumbup:

Prime time tonight making very uncomfortable viewing for the gardai- seem to have ignored the Quinn situation until it became very serious. Some evil fuckers up there, the idea that this didn’t involve Sean Quinn at some level seems preposterous

A friend of mine went to look at a second hand Jeep on Done Deal a few months ago(only brought it up a few weeks back) in Rathoath. He said he’d noticed the house where he was picking up the Jeep for a test drive had some smoke and fire damage a few weeks previously to the dealer. The guy living there had been appointed to work at One of Quinn’s firms a few months previously.....hence the discount on the jeep.

Anyone from that border region including a lot of north Meath supports Quinn. They love him. As TSG points out you can’t support an insurance business with illiquid assets like property or privately held companies. But it was the type of logic that appeals to a lot of thick cunts. Property and “jabs” trumps business logic.

I used to work in/around/across the border, Quinn was f**king revered basically. He could do no wrong, anything said against him was a Dublin conspiracy, and because I was from Dublin I obviously was against him.

When I had health insurance with them they seemed to cover little or nothing and tried to weasel out and delay, Laya was so much better and cheaper.

What do lads make of Molex and Novartis letting jobs go? A result of a global manufacturing slowdown or local uncompetitiveness? Not very helpful for the Dublin-Rest of Ireland divide either.

Is it possible that it's "end of product life cycle" with cheaper manufacturing options elsewhere? I haven't a clue but got that impression from reading the reports.

Molex are switching from their old business (connecters / interconnectors) and into the new acquisitions like Phillips medisize which is electronic drug delivery systems, e-cigarettes will be big money for them also. I had heard rumours that the Shannon plant was going to get some of that manufacturing but it looks like that was wrong.

Yeah they must think we are a soft touch. How can you conceal 38 adults - what technology are they using at the port to check the truck if any?

IIRC they do have an X-ray scanner down there which would pick up biological signatures even in a refrigerated trailer but I guess this particular vehicle wasn't scanned.

They’re saying the checks are usually done at Calais but not so much at Cherbourg so the traffickers are just bringing them in via Ireland. Surprised the brits aren’t checking on entry at Holyhead. British media will have a field day blaming the bumbling Irish but it’s equally on them and the French

If you get 40 years out a plant that’s it’s lifetime. It’s sad but 40 years is a good innings.

Apropos of not much but I have yet to meet a single Irishman or woman who has business dealings in Bulgaria who I would trust with the price of a luckybag.

There is something magnificently magnetic about that country and its ability to draw in chancers like cheap metal filings.

Has it even been confirmed the owner is from Ireland? Was it an Irish reg vehicle? I heard on the radio earlier it was an Irish citizen - which everyone in NI is obviously entitled to be.

The saddest thing about Twitter and the internet is seeing adult, aged males act like that for reactions.

I suppose as much as a dick as he is, he probably won't be alive too much longer so we can be thankful for that.

This is a situation where nationality is totally irrelevant yet it has become an issue for some particularly sad individuals. You can only hope that those responsible face the full wrath of the law, sooner rather than later, preferably in the native country of the tragic victims.

The establishment made him titled. That says a lot about how they feel about us as well. I knew he was a scumbag growing up but Twitter has really woken me up to the fact he is an utter shit stain on humanity. And I say that as somebody who has only read three of the threads of stuff he has said over the last few years. Fück knows what he says the rest of the time. Anyway as I said leave them at it happy in the knowledge Northern Ireland is the 196th country in the world with an economy based on basalt and...well they can work that out but Sean Quinn is a go getter

Novartis has been around a long time and pharma margins are getting tighter and tighter.

It's lifecycle.

That is an old plant that makes products that have global manufacturing competition. Unless the facility can remain cost competitive with global competitors in China, India, Singapore as well as CMOs, then why would head office in Basel continue to make such a big contribution to the economy in the local Cork area?

And if the processing is returning to Novartis facilities, you then need to look at both cost and tax incentives ...

This will not be the last major job loss in the Irish Pharma sector that will be announced in the next period due to changing global dynamics; yet these job losses will be dwarfed in the mid-term by the expansion that is already under way for new facilities, especially in the biotech sector.

Ireland needs to see where the next wave of biopharma investments will go after the ones already under way, in the same way Intel here does for wafer fab investments ... microelectronics have suffered some lean investment years but a good operational track record and controlling costs for the long term have enabled future capital investment in that sector. Biopharma needs to work from a similar playbook but also adapt for the evolving playing conditions expected (as I wished Joe Schmidt had done).

When I was house hunting I noticed they'd take ads down and put them back up every month or so. You can search for the address in Google and try find cached results but I think that's about it. There used to be a site called daftdrop.com that basically scraped Daft and stored all this info but it has been shut down.
