    Jesus lads, 'tis looking like BREXIT!

    Someone once said: The world’s problem is not trying help the poor, but satisfying the rich.

    Dublin... Is a fucking shithole

    That's probably a correct statement, so therefore the Irish authorities need to fight fire with fire. For example, catch all these scumbags, round them up, convict them and assign them some disgusting work (ie) cleaning toilets, cleaning streets and here's the kicker....video the whole thing and...

    The Queen stepping down?

    Definitely lined with somethin' seeing as it takes 8 military boyos to haul the thing around on their shoulders.

    Redevolpment of Pairc Ui Chaoimh

    Wow. Just Wow. Mr. Arnold's tunnel vision is extreme here. https://www.echolive.ie/corksport/arid-40962218.html His ridiculous conflating of totally separate issues (in reference to Ed Sheeran being facilitated ahead of the hurlers when he damn well knows it was the GAA who brought about that...

    2022 Premier Senior Hurling

    Refs would not allow 'Next Score Wins' (and I don't blame them for their stance to be fair). This was brought up at nauseum during the debates about penalty shootouts. Imagine a situation where a contentious free is awarded by a ref and the free is converted. You are looking at another 'ref in...

    SEAI heat and energy conservation sh*t show

    https://www.peoplesrepublicofcork.com/forums/index.php?threads/energy-saving-advice.247303/page-5 So glad I put this in. It’ll be put to a serious capacity test if we have a bad winter. It’ll be interesting to see my buy back in savings made. It’s been almost always topped out with the amazing...

    He can turf tenants out who have no recourse and bring new/different ones in and Jack up the monthly rent. He can also keep any security deposit again without the tenant having any say.

    He prob will. A clever stroke my mehole to stir the pot just before Leo takes the reigns.

    Your faith in the robustness of our water infrastructure is extremely funny! Tell me again, what part of west cork has a hose pipe ban currently? That’s right, fellow corkonians. But it’s ‘shit you Jack I’m alright’ with you.

    I said the policy approach seems sound. The councillor doesn’t sound the full bob though, I’ll give you that.

    Not sure what your gripe is with this. The letter's structure is clearly designed to highlight the lack of services in the area to meet the needs of people. What happens if/when the waste water treatment facilities in the areas fail in the winter months and faeces starts shooting out of pipework...

    Rate the last movie you watched out of 10

    Felt myself clenched throughout the action sequences to a point where I had to frustratingly tell myself to cop on as it was starting to ache, a movie hasn’t done that in a long time. A bit too cheesy in places but you kinda knew that going in so an 8/10 for me.

    No, our commission for energy regulation set the max prices that utility companies are allowed charge.

    The Official Irish Rugby Thread 19/20.

    Well….we still need to see how long France can sustain. You must remember, we peaked in 2018 and shat the bed in 2019. The same thing could very well happen to France. They have a tough 2023 six nations ahead also. Let’s see what injuries they’ll pick after a gruelling 2022/2023 club season...

    Jesus lads, 'tis looking like BREXIT!

    Sorry? What are you talking about? A border poll result would lead to constitutional change. Constitutional change requires a referendum, full stop. The government of the day (with a working majority for example) DO NOT have over riding powers.

    Jesus lads, 'tis looking like BREXIT!

    No no no. In theory the SoS has the ability to call a BP but he/she can’t go on a solo run. That cannot happen. Although it’s in the gift of the SOS to call a BP, it won’t happen if the ROI say we are not ready to hold a referendum yet. The BP vote is only allowed to happen simultaneously North...

    You should see it as a blessing in disguise. If the crash happened (2007/2008) and ye were down to one income and then scrambling to get approval on the back of one income you would have been rejected by every lender as the mortgage lending rules came in soon after. Not only that but after...

    So you want me to address the makey uppy concerns of Michael mcDowell. All to validate your own insecurities about the bogeyman. A person who’s liable for the position we are in in housing. A taniste who enabled FF in the wheeling and dealings of the Irish property casino and then has the nerve...

    The next Government

    Again, I repeat. Why should I respond to an op ed by a person who has a clear and nasty agenda. The ‘points’ are all based on what ifs and maybes and not based on any reality. He’s almost attributing the housing crisis as SF’s fault in the piece. It’s disgusting.
