The economic argument in favour of reunification has already been proven. But good luck getting that to resonate with the unionists, they'll just dismiss it out of hand. That's a detailed report put together by senior and impartial economists. On the other hand, Jimmy Deenihan was once asked a question on camera about whether or not we could afford reunification, and the unprepared minister grumbled for a second and said "uh, uh, no really....."


Sadly, the economic argument has not been proven. A fundamental problem is that SF are not credible on economic matters and don't seem to have realised that economics is the biggest obstacle to moving thing on.

That report was not published by SF.

It was effectively paid for by SF. I'm not saying it is wrong, but lot more work is needed. Nobody much is doing this work.

Clowns jumping into the sea and kite surfing when there's an alert like this on, putting the lives of first responders at risk. It should be illegal and punishable with a bit of jail time. Gobs*****s.

I was listening to the radio today and these people were justifying themselves and some other woman who was swimming in Dun Laoghaire who reckoned it was her business and alerts did not apply to her.

Up my direction it has been a bit windy alright but nothing really bad. Getting a day off school tomorrow again though. A bit unnecessary.
Exactly. I didn't ever see a report anywhere that there was going to be an issue tomorrow.
There hasn't even been an issue today in this part of the country.

There might well be some issues not that far away, after all a man died in Ravensdale, and I'd say it is pretty draughty in the north-west right now, but they chose not itemise the schools concerned.

Aye the wife and kids are over joyed!! I'm traveling to Dublin tomorrow, surely it will have passed by then? I thought it was to be gone by 10 tonight!

it is going to be windy for the rest of the week, but more your normal wind.

I imagine schools remain closed as some roads will be blocked with trees etc and other schools will have no power.
They probably could have opened the city schools no problem, but then you'd have a whine.

Be careful to compare like with like.
If you have a car to trade in then you can get a good PCP deal, but at the end of the PCP period you then do not have a car to trade in as such.

Nordies blame southerners for withholding hurricane from the northern  cousins instead giving only a watered down tropical storm.

It is hardly the first time they withheld full participation in something.

Red weather alert issued for the entire country

Only the 26 counties, it will be much calmer in the 6 counties, apparently.

Well done Harps, when Lavery caught the ball on the second half throw in I wasn't giving you much chance.

should just close all schools

another day off for teachers!

That's the problem, you have a once in 50 year event where people will die and all you get are smart Alec remarks about teachers.
