Do An Post own the actual site in Little Island? If they do then maybe the money to be made from selling the site was a contributory factor.

They weren't unskilled workers by the way, and I don't know what you mean by cushy jobs but I suspect you never had to work shift work. It's ok when you're young but from about 30 on it gets more and more difficult.
By skilled i mean formal off the job training thats cerfified.

By unskilled i dont mean to demean anybody.

Neil and pj and paul byrne are unskilled in that they have no qualifications.

By getting stuck in, going at it hard and a little luck they suceeded.

I know folks working for an post......its a cushy number.

As for shift.....hell no. I used to do on call many years ago but to be honest , these days i dont need the money.

Agreed that shift is deffo a young mans game but shift workers do know that its part of the gig and they do get their 33% extra.
