    I believe Ireland's corporate tax rate of 12.5 % is lower than that of America.. ;) In short, that is whats fueling the Irish economy of the recent past. Oh - Ireland has the lowest unemployment rate in all of the EU. Try that France or Germany - perhaps a correlation with the tax rates? :D

    In any case, this lad (badattitude) has had a bit much drink. Time to move on and discuss Stuttgart and the travelling Irish..

    I also saw a stat that said I believe over 88% of Irish people own homes. The highest in Europe.

    Now, I'm confused who's playing for what pride? Should Ireland pull an Italy and win 4 World Cups because they are proud of their non-English, Spanish and Italian houses? Or is it to celebrate all this money from the EU that they never have to pay back? Or is it the false economy? Or is it something else entirely? All very confusing.

    However don't ever leave, the comedy quotient is too high............

    I didn't veer this off course - they did - in fact I brought up examples of poor Irish football standards - and it was skirted by the lot and not addressed...
    You wanna talk Irish football - we can...you wanna talk about the Dark Ages ..we can...America? Sure...Homes around the globe -economies - we can...

    The key to future Irish success on the field is having a good league. We can no longer rely on England developing our players for us, they are having enough trouble as it is doing it for themselves, thanks to influx of non British Isles players over the last 10 or so years.

    But getting the Eircom League up to the proper standards is easier said than done. Like it or not, there are loads of young Irish players who would prefer to sit on the bench at some club like Rushden & Diamonds or Yeovil Town than actually play with Bray Wanderers or Cobh Ramblers. Perhaps they earn more money doing do. The country is prosperous enough now that there surely must be some footie lovers somewhere to start putting more money into the EL clubs. Why is Niall Quinn putting money into Sunderland and not some club in Dublin?

    Hmm, or perhaps he spent most of his playing years there, can earn better money IN FOOTBALL there, and was born in WALES. Know your $#!t before typing and trying to prove me wrong. I was just pointing out that he was a former player as well who decided to be in England, Quinn though, is from Dublin.

    Yeah, there are too many non-English, Spanish and Italian houses there. England, on the other hand, only has non-Spanish and Italian houses, so that makes it easier.

    Anyway, you're fun. Are you here all week or all the time? Such a font of information and I'm learning so much about how the concept of at not with.
