The Irish Nationwide thread


What do you mean “again”? Might’ve bought an Evening Herdald once or twice in pre-tabloid form thirty-five years ago, but I don’t think I’ve been tempted since.

The question is why anyone ever bought a paper in Ireland. They long ago lost any remaining utility with the invention of the kerosene impregnated firelighter.

So somebody had to tell the directors of the largest private property investment company in the state that there was a property bubble and it couldn’t continue indefinitely? What were his qualifications? Top chap? Friend of the boss? Mouth shut and rubber stamp?

Norman Stanley Fletcher…


I see Walls are renovating the INBS HQ (formerly Carrolls Cigarettes) at 2 Grand Parade. The owners applied for and were granted an exemption from planning permission in March. The building is listed/heritage.
