Be interesting to see what percentage of their workforce is Catholic

Is it not renowned for being firmly under the control of some rather unseemly characters from the other side of the fence?

Is the law very strict about this in the North?

It does tend to be. You've to fill in fec stuff pre employment. Not sure if that's the case elsewhere but i would guess it is?

If you don't cover yourself people could get a lot out of you at a tribunal.

They have been forced to start hiring more catholics in the last few years

Personally, I wouldn't work for them going by their history. A dodgy shower of b**tards imo

Know a few lads who work there and they it is absolutely miserable

Christians own it. Even have Church in grounds of company. Have had loads of dealings with them in my last job. Didn't know any catholic workers that whole time
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Misreable for the non Christian / good-living Prods too I'm sure.

In the language used in the previous posts there seems an acceptance that Catholics are not Christians, which seems rather odd. Perhaps Milltown's post should have had quotes, "Christians" own it.

It is actually quite odd armaghniac that quite a number of protestants describe themselves as christian though I've never heard a catholic say it.

Christian and good living are two things you seem to hear certain denominations of the protestant faith say. It seems to be those of the presbyterian persuasion from what I have seen.

I was always fascinated by that quote "Oh they're good living". What does that mean? I like to think I live quite good but it seems to mean that you go to Church all the time and don't swear. Big whoop!!!

I think it's the 10% of your earnings to the church that makes the difference between 'good living' and living good.

Its all a load of oul shite.
Behind closed doors they are all bating their wives and riding each others wives and up to all sorts of dodgy antics.
The minute I hear about supposed good or 'clean living' folk it just conjures up images of the opposite.
Nobody on this island we live on is Good or Clean living.
