People involved in student politics are the worst human beings in the world.

Worse than scrum-halves.

Cool, you can be my guinea pig so ;) Let me know how you get on!

No drama at all as long as you are renewing only. They accept that any documents shown previously i.e. proof of PPSN, utility bills etc... don't need to be brought in again which is what I was hoping. You just need your current license, fill out the form and pay 55 euros. New license in the post within 2 weeks. Grand job.

Bottlenecks at Dublin Airport could threaten its long-term expansion plans, according to the chief executive of Aer Lingus’s owner, Willie Walsh.
The airport expects to beat 2015’s record of 25 million passengers this year but its success is putting pressure on aircraft parking and taxi-ways, leading to delays for disembarking passengers.
Mr Walsh, chief executive International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG), owner of Aer Lingus and British Airways, said that the company would not expand its services from Dublin if the infrastructure was not there to support it.
Aer Lingus is launching three new transatlantic routes this year, to LA, Newark New Jersey and Hartford Connecticut, and is weighing adding another service to the US in 2017.
However, Mr Walsh warned that the airline would not accelerate its growth plans if Dublin does not tackle the constraints. “We cannot keep putting aircraft there if we have nowhere to park them,” he said.
Aer Lingus and Ryanair ‘close to a passenger sharing deal’
Aer Lingus set to offer wifi on long-haul flights
The airport plans to build a bus terminus at terminal two, but Mr Walsh believes that there are cheaper and more efficient ways of tackling the problem, including covered walkways and building new aircraft stands.
He argued that Aer LIngus and British Airways customers do not want to be bussed from their craft. “I doubt any airline is saying to Dublin Airport Authority can you build us a bus terminal please?,” he said.
IAG and Ryanair support Dublin’s plans to build a new runway, although they have expressed doubts about the proposed €320 million cost as the original figure was meant to be €250 million.
Mr Walsh agreed that the new runway is needed but stressed that it would have no impact on the current problems, which he warned that the airport needs to tackle quickly if it is to fulfil its ambitions to develop a hub for transatlantic flights.
He was speaking following the inaugural British Airways flight from London’s Heathrow Airport to US tech capitol San Jose in California, the first direct European service to the American city.
New transatlantic route
Mr Walsh indicated that Aer Lingus could add a new US destination next year and that it is also considering boosting capacity on some of its existing services.
IAG bought the Irish airline to expand the group’s overall transatlantic business by feeding passengers to its north American flights from Dublin and Shannon.
The deal was done nine months after the group first approached Aer Lingus in December 2014 and included commitments on maintaining the Irish airline’s links to Heathrow.
It was only after those terms were agreed that the Government parted with its 25 per cent stake in the airline.
Dublin-born Mr Walsh, who is a former chief executive of Aer Lingus, acknowledged that the complex politics involved in the takeover process could have forced a non-Irish chief executive to walk away from the transaction. “The fact that I’m Irish did help,” he said.

The upside to Ross is that he can actually talk.
The downside is that he has just sold out those who didn't vote for FG.

So which minister did you get? I mean as in most closely aligned to your work. I got Zappone which considering we just had O'Reilly, who literally couldn't have given a fûck, shows that the ministry is both unimportant and now viewed as something to have a laugh about. From a glutton to a feminist- should have done commerce

Just heard SR's speech in the dail - as nauseating and it was deluded. He got in on the back of fixing the potholes/reopening a Garda station and now he's preaching about "new politics". The guy who didn't want to invest in Dublin airport is now minister for transport. He was also a major cheerleader for Anglo. This would be hilarious if it wasn't my country :?

He's no more or less of a chancer than any other person who wants to be in politics.
Was happy enough in the Seannad until it was threatened with being canned.
Made his move to become TD at the right time. Tops the polls in DLR.
Like it or not, it does signify that a huge number of educated, middle class people from South Dublin didn't want to vote for FG, FF, or Labour. So who else would be left if you didn't want the Shinners?

It's going to be very interesting to see if SR has shot himself in the foot, aiding Inda to remain as Taoiseach. Many would not have voted for him on that basis.
However, it remains to be seen what influence he will have on government
policy, both at National and 50m swimming pool please level.

It should be quite a united cabinet, as the non FG people are mostly from the 'FG family'. Naughton and Creed were independent in name only, Ross is ex FG, and Zappone has voted for Enda from the beginning so may as well be.
