I know a LOT of friends who would have taken a reduction in their guarenteed pay by 10-15% over last 10 years rather than get a P45, have no income for a year, and have to travel abroad for work.

I can't even think about Bertie without thinking of my friends who had some very difficult time in the late 00's.

Edit: And in case anyone suggests, no, my friends "didn't all party".
They were just a few years out of college, most didn't buy houses - thankfully - just young people who lost their jobs as companies were cutting back.

I watched this recently and was impressed. We live in a beautiful country. http://www.tg4.ie/ga/clair/tithe-cois-farraige/
Tithe Cois Farraige is an 8 part series developed by TG4. Filmed using state-of-the art equipment, the series showcases beautiful and unique Irish homes and gives us a glimpse into the lives of people who live on the coast..

I agree, definitely worth a watch.
I think that TG4 in general punch above their weight regarding the programs they commission/produce.

Did the mainstream media have some sort of collective stroke over the weekend? A positive factual discussion stroke?
:-GC

Newstalk earlier (about 5pm) drilling in to Garda "allowances", and pension entitlements.
I was amazed - I'd never heard it done properly before... though many years I'd waited. Garda spokesperson was on... he did an awful job of defending it. He failed miserably really.

Then I get home and hear a similar conversation on the RTE 6 ONE news about Horgan report.
Somebody actually said - out loud on RTE during prime time - that the equivalent contributions to a private pension to realise the same pension as an average Garda would be "30 to 40,000 a year to fund in private sector".
"Gold plated" they called it.
I waited for the counter-argument drummed up by RTE about public service, or Garda spokesperson... nothing! Amazing.

Somebody will be getting dragged in to the DG over that. We can't be having that loose talk about the facts of the Garda pensions, and what unrealistically massive contributions normal PAYE worker would need to contribute to realise the same pension.
Crazy stuff to have this discussed at 6:05pm... and on the National Broadcaster, no less?
Proles - know your place!!
