Not sure what you mean by that question.

I was referring to the referendums on the Lisbon treaty.

The most recent one of course. The same as the divorce referendum.

Respect the Irish vote.

Halifax BOSI pulling out of Ireland, 750 jobs lost

Halifax Bank of Scotland Ireland has announced it’s pulling out of Ireland with the loss of 750 jobs.

The bank, which is owned by Lloyds, informed staff of its decision this afternoon.

The bank is to close 44 retail branches across the country and it’s also closing its call centre in Dundalk, Co. Louth.

Halifax Bank of Scotland says it will no longer be offering any products in the Irish market but existing mortgage holders will be catered for.

The redundancies are expected to take place between the end of May and the end of July.

13,000 jobs lost in January, 200 lost up the country on Monday, and today another 750. Where will it all end?? 60,000 under 25s emigrated last year (according to news reports yesterday). This government is paralysed. When I heard Michael Martin justifying the €4.4m renovation on the Canadian ambassador's residence, I wanted to rip his head off.

Oh, I also lost my job 9 months ago - I just wish someone would come up with some sort of jobs creation initiative. Is this it?? Continous job losses? Brian Lenihan said a few weeks back that the worst was behind us, we had 'turned a corner'. Jesus wept.

Chill out,everything is OK.We are at the heart of Europe.Voting yes strengthened our position you see.While you are freaking out over a few thousand jobs being lost,Brussels is inventing new better jobs to replace them.They'll be here any day now.Keep an eye out.Brussels has our backs, fuck all those Spaniards and Greeks and Portuguese,they'll be getting nothing until we get sorted out.
