It's true, the Stryker Corp party. Was in Cork at weekend and got the low down from a mates girlfriend who works in Lilly.
Hmmm Cork based medical company? And nobody has heard from Sewa.....
I don't do Xmas parties. For this very reason, bloody camera phones.

Just ban the predatory advertising and we'll all be happy. I love the bookies, one of my favourite hobbies. But the ads targeted at the vulnerable make your skin crawl. And they are so, so tedious.

The larger bookies are all now in favour of scaling it back as they've made their market and reduced advertising will hurt their smaller competitors trying to make a name for themselves. if those guys do suffer then so be it. But the scale and focus of the ads really has to stop.

I probably should ask this when the thread is a bit busier but does anyone have any advice on saving over a long period, eg. 10 years+? Would be thinking of making a monthly contribution rather than having a lump sum up front. All the banks seem to have investment products but are they any good? If doing it myself, tax with stuff like an index fund seems like a nightmare.

There is only really one answer to that question and it is property. Low interest rates are here to stay for many years to come. The only way to make money is either in fairly high risk investments or property.

I do it myself and invest in index funds. Allows you to pull out at short notice. Average over last 5/6 years is 8% a d over.

Property has been bloody flat over the last 2 or so years. Little capital appreciation so just rental income - interest on mortgage giving me about 6%. Zero positive cashflow through with everything going on repaying the mortgage and maintenance.

I thought it was good, didn't pick up on it being RA friendly though.

Ah I dunno. I was at one on NYE a few years ago and had a great time. Great food and loads of friends at it. Best NYE out in a long time for me. It was actually the last time I was out on NYE too.
Much prefer to stay at home and have a few nice drinks.
Don't think I'll even manage that tonight though. Think I'm getting a dose of the vomiting bug

The Oireachtas doesn't have to accept the findings of any "citizens assembly", and won't if it doesn't like the outcome.
