Clearys closes.

130 lose job directly and one assumes 330 in concessions lose jobs too.

I don't blame the economy for this. I only partly blame the rise of the internet.
I blame the image problems of the street, inhospitability of dublin city centre and inaccesibility as the council appear to be intent on killing trade in the city centre.

Maybe the new owners will relaunch and it'll be better than ever but they appear to be a vulture property fund.

3rd time around, first examiners, then receivers, now liquidators. HMV "unaffected" apparently but I assume it's only a matter of time for them too...

The job loss story isn't great. Very hard jobs to replace. If you're a specialist, you'd probably have to transfer into something else or move abroad.

But we've done very well out of Intel in fairness.

There has been a lot of knowledge spin-off from Intel's presence. Whether this knowledge stays here is another matter. But it's fair to say that a lot of people (small/medium business owners, landlords, etc.) have done very well out of Intel.

Leixlip is a very unattractive place to live in as far as I'm concerned - the traffic is bad, the public services aren't so good (schools, hospital care, public transport, public amenities, etc.) and the rents are very high. Personal tax is also very high. It would be difficult to attract high quality workers. Though non-EU folks like it here. They put in 5 years and can get an EU visa very easily.

Not that I would choose to live in Leixlip but if their facilities are poor, well that's almost the whole of Ireland. Two train stations with a regular line, two Dublin bus routes, a few primary schools with places, two public secondary schools with a private one nearby. Two GAA clubs, an AIL rugby club, a running track, tennis courts (still there?), astro turf and soccer club, gyms, fishing, golf clubs nearby and kayaking.

What more do you require?

The yacht club is terrible.

On Intel, papers reporting 420-550 range of redundancies. What will go unreported, as ever, is the contractors. Might take 6 months to feed into system but it will have a big impact on rental and general housing market in North Kildare.
