Car traffic jams are everywhere. Lots of drivers taking stupid risks to get ahead in the jam

Hotel prices have gone nuts

I've noticed a lot more L & N/L drivers on the road. I've noticed a lot of people driving really badly in this category but not always but I'm going to say in main. Taking incredible risks or simply moronic mistakes that betray a lack of situational driving awareness. It's actually very worrying.

We probably need a Driving 101 thread at this point hybridised with "insurance" costs.

Jams only because sub prime lending has taken over car financing, car deals being offered to people who really cannot afford them, no job? don't worry, here ya go - it's the next blow up bubble and not just here

The increasingly frightening thing for me, which others have commented on here, but seems to get limited coverage on MSM is:
- the economy has probably grown by close to 20% in last 4 years.
- Government revenue is up around the same.
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (which is madness).
- we have not really decreased the state’s debt burden bar refinancing the interest payments.
- Brexit could throw a spanner at us, that could plunge us into deficit easily.
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (which is madness!!).
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (WHICH IS F#CKING MADNESS!!).

Way more expensive than other fee-paying schools because the State doesn't pay its teachers. Why not? I assume because they are not teaching the Leaving Cert.

How much would you pay to get your child out of the Leaving? The IB is more demanding intellectually but the students won't be having nightmares about the exams for the rest of their lives :roll:

Not to much more expensive than Clongowes @ €19,500

However Clongowes is a boarding school.

That's a big difference.

Clongowes is such excellent value, it could solve our housing problem. It would be cheaper to pay for 25 years of boarding at Clongowes than to construct a single unit of affordable housing in Dublin. And the residents will be fed and educated XX

Party on dude!

We are wealthier than during the boom, says Central Bank
Central Bank data shows net worth of State households hit record figure of €757bn
https://www.irishtimes.com/business/fin ... -1.3691310
Quote:
Irish households are, on paper at least, more than 75 per cent wealthier than they were at the low point of recession.
According to Central Bank’s latest quarterly financial accounts, the net worth of Irish households hit a record €757 billion in the second quarter of this year, eclipsing the boomtime pre-crash peak of €719 billion reached in the second quarter of 2007.
