Could we entice some financial services from London to Dublin? The IT had a story about Morgan Stanley leaving the UK for Dublin or Frankfurt.

We can of course attract a lot of companies to move to Dublin, but they will need some coaxing from the Irish government agencies.

We can't be leaving it to them to figure it out.

Also, Enda is scared of upsetting the British and being seen to benefit from Brexit. We are led by a Donkey.

It's time to give Britain and Ireland a different option to the EU. An alternative must be offered. Our political class are betraying the nation.
There is no such place as Britain and Ireland.


Your avatar disgusts me.

Ireland isn't even considered when the commission decided to punish the UK for leaving. In punishing them they destroy Ireland and all because they fear a contagious exit by other nations.
Actually, it's in the interest of Europe that that doesn't happen. It's in the collective interest that Britain isn't rewarded.

Actually, I see it as a great opportunity for Ireland. I predicted a Stay and hoped for a Leave and bejaysas, I was shocked on Thursday morning, but I had a grin on my face old chap.
Well then I apologise.

It's just that we have heard such total rubbish from the Remain side this week.

I agree that Enda is probably the poorest leader we have in this situation. Roll on the next election.

Ah now, both sides seemed to have engaged in a lot of poetic licence.

It's time to adopt the British policy of having interests and not Friends.

The British would be publicly telling all companies in Ireland that they could move to the UK and get full support if Ireland had Eirexit.

So, how can we make hay of the decision by a member state to leave the EU?

Shouldn't the HSE get its arse ASAP over to the UK and tell all our Irish nurses that we'd love them to return to Ireland where they won't have to worry about getting visas? (Mind you, the government would have to reverse the decision to yet again impose a hiring freeze despite engineering a crisis where many major acute hospitals are staffed at very dangerous levels).

And the Dept of Education, that bastion of backward thing by times, couldn't we take an outsider in to look at ensuring we build rapidly our linguistic skills in order to be a multi-lingual front door into Europe for business?

Any more suggestions?
The visa thing is not a thing. There'll be no visa requirements for Brits in Europe or for Paddies on the mainland.

Ireland's advantages will depend to a great degree on how vindictive the EU is in setting conditions with the UK. As we're shackled to the EU, we aren't even allowed negotiate a trading deal with our biggest market. There may be trouble ahead.

Christ, you lot really are a shower of vultures.
Other countries are likely to be thinking the same thing. If companies make strategic decisions to look elsewhere, how are we the vultures to seek opportunities to accommodate them?

That friends thing has worked well for very long time. Self-serving interests do not work very well for a small country like ours.

We're not. I'm not sure where Calc is coming from on that one.

It'll be like going to the US, of course they'll be immigration control. As it was before the UK was in the EU.

You can't have the rights without the responsibilities.

Of course it will. Sure wasn't that what the whole Brexit thing boiled down to in the end. How else do you expect them to police their border?
