Especially as the article clearly states that the average earning was €12 an hour, which back then was around €3 above minimum wage.

We did it the hard way, kids these days don't know squat
mahon point is only open about 12 years so its not like you are too far from being a kid yourself.
Now the eighties... thats a different matter when men were men and girls had thier tits felt and not a bother on them

The first time I went to college my parents paid for it, the next two times I paid for it myself and worked full time. There was definitely a difference in the approach.

.the high turnover from 1st to 2nd year is because these little shits cant grow up and think since they watched American pie or Old School, think the party goes on for life

I used to see these types in every day for two naggins of the cheapest vodka and cans, and act the shitehawk thinking theyre the shit
The party has to end some time.

Ever seen Educating Rita? Michael Caine portraying a sozzled professor was not wide of the mark in any way.
When I was in college we had a lecturer in 2nd and 3rd year who frequently turned up to classes rather merry or hungover. He was still a damn good lecturer though!

It’s well known that alcoholism is rife among academia and faculty members in practically any third level institution.

I love its these ones who actually protest for fees but have enough for 4/5 nights out a week and barely show up for lectures

Majority of students actually don't give a shit or get involved, like myself and majority of the ones I associated with, we went in, went to majority of lessons, and then fecked off to our part time work and had nights out on our own dime
Certainly weren't many around whose "doddy" could afford to pay the fees, damn few of us would ever have seen the inside of University had it not been that Scotland is free of tuition fees up to a point, grant's were fair to adequate but always nice to get a wee lift from home, my auntie and her man sent five to Uni, she worked summer and winter picking winkles to supplement them.

Used to be part time barman and play trad accordion at weekend in The Park which was and still is packed out most weekends, it was like a Frenchman living next door to a brothel, being fed booze by folks and getting paid to play...Dracula in the proverbial blood bank.

One lad stayed with us in shared flat, bought a drum kit out of his first grant allowance, didn't attend one lecture, he was grand craic like but just mad, anyway he got a letter demanding repayment of grant but another of the lads knew an Irish fella, Johnny S who was into anything and everything and for ten quid he got our lad a Doc's cert to say his mother and fathers marital problems had weighed him down..blah blah..and so he was given the next term of grant, he went and bought Electric guitar and a sound system ! that would have rendered The Who deaf and still didn't' attend one lecture,...

...soooo one day meself and another pal decided to call him up..with me pretending to be the Director of Education and demanding and threatening all manner of retribution on him...he swore he'd be in the very next day where the Top man would come visit him...and so he was and every time the door handle turned he went ashen white...by late afternoon he'd kopped on that this was some kind of a hoax and stormed out...back at the flat one of the others not in on the gig got a shellacking that wasn't canny...poor lad knew bugger all about it....tis far too long a story to complete...and it seemed funny at the time...

It was a woman lecturer who was drunk.

Echo did a story without mentioning gender.

This is neo-leftism
