Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Irish private intellectual disability care service providers, Nua Healthcare, is to create 800 jobs While of all the 'civil service' provisions this is one of the most deserving - its a private company working off a govt contract to provide the service. Hence I called it semi civil service ... beca...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Winning tomorrow without Sexton, POC, POM and SOB would be Irelands greatest ever victory. Murray needs his best performance for Ireland and we'll still have a good chance of getting it done. Need to keep that set piece rock solid. Can't believe Paddy Power are still giving Arg a four point start.

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Rather than launching in to massive spending on this area we firstly need to get rid of the ridiculous triple lock then coordinate defence spending on an EU level.
