    What I find unusual is that they are very articulate & impeccably well dressed with robotic like postures.

    Usually those sort are dressed like hippies and stooped over

    Eunoch looks like such a typical teacher with his bag. I didn't realise his own family look like teachers too. 🤣🤣🤣 Their good names have been affected 🤣🤣🤣

    The government should be paying him an appearance fee every time he turns up to school.

    He's hogging the headlines while a government minister whispers that paddy will be taking another 80k refugees this year, some of whom turned citywest into a warzone the other night!

    Ill bear that in mind for the next one. English was never a strong subject in school for me due to a learning difficulty (honestly i think a lot of it could have been laziness and lack of interest looking back on it now) and i even bucked the trend by doing pass english and honours Irish for the LC an odd one for someone with no real Gaelgeoir background in a very non Gaelteacht area.

    I wouldn't be using Australia as a bastion of multiculturalism , you need a serious history lesson re their treatment of the aboriginal community even present day their still treated like something out of Jim crowe America in the 60's

    It surely wasnt fair what happened to them in the past however they do have great opportunities there if they would take them. Like all groups you will have some who will excel and take these opportunities with both hands while you have others there who will lay around all day and claim whatever welfare they can. I heard countless stories out there about the first nations people getting the best of houses out there and within a week they are wrecked, where have we hears similar before. On state funded infrastructure jobs the first nations people get preference when applying for jobs as there is an initiative there to employ them in good well paying jobs. They have either a week or a month of the year called NAIDOC where the first nations culture is celebrated and promoted in a bid to educate the rest of the population about it. A lot of what was done to those people was also inflicted on the people of this country over the centuries and even within the last 100 years there is fair similarities of what was done here and in Australia the culprit this time being the church. I know the first few points i made dont compensate enough for what happened but at least its a start.

    Did anyone import a commercial vehicle from the North recently? Was on the Vrt calculator there and was wondering if the nox and vrt are a separate charge. Getting kinda confused.

  • Registered Users Posts: 27,505 ✭✭✭✭ whelan2

    What's the story with the new tb movement rules?

  • Registered Users Posts: 63 ✭✭ Le shovelle

    Yeah, the nox is an additional charge

    Youngsters in eire always had desire to leave the island shores.nothing new there. Yes traditionally it was lack of a job & money that helped them push off.what's the problem now? I doubt it's yet down to migration here.

    Probably the cost of living & unable to buy a home, which is a poor reflection on successive governments.

    Heads are more turned now though than before with online pics e.t.c of a good life abroad somewhere with weather & nice skin colours from lots of sun.

    Maybe the youngsters of the past were the lucky ones with hindsight?

    My great grandfather a Ballingeery man, left Ireland in the late 1800's, he returned as the century turned with his wife and they bought a farm in Kerry near to where she came from. It peculiar as my better half grandfather went to the US returned and bought a farm as well.

    My great-grandmother emigrated to the USA sometime after the famine. She worked as a nanny for a family in New York. She returned to Ireland after a few years. We still have a broach that she owned.
