Ireland the land that is so special has just been given a double slap in the face by Europe.

A few days ago Noonan announced to the world that the Greek deal was 'not applicable' to Ireland.

Then Noonan announced Ireland will scour the euro zone's new Greek aid deal for anything that would help Dublin's efforts to pull free from its own EU/IMF bailout as scheduled next year.

Tonight the Eurozone have slapped the buffoon in the face and showed the people just how special we really are.

Eurogroup not prepared to offer Greek bailout terms to Ireland - Juncker
The Chairman of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, Jean-Claude Juncker, has said that ministers were not prepared to extend the same terms to Ireland and Portugal as were agreed last week in order to manage Greece's long term debts.


Mr Juncker was speaking at the conclusion of the fourth Eurogroup meeting in as many weeks.
He said: "I don't think the Eurogroup is prepared to give equally similar treatment to [Portugal and Ireland] when it comes to the detailed discussions taken as far as Greece is concerned."


Earlier, the Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan, said the Government would be interested in looking at elements of the Greek deal to see if they would help Ireland in exiting the bailout programme next year.

Wolfgang Schaeuble says ESM will not recapitalise banks in the short term

German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has warned against hopes that the EU's permanent bailout fund, the European Stability Mechanism, could be used to recapitalise banks in the short term.
The stance is important to Ireland, as the Government hopes the €500bn ESM will take stakes in Irish pillar banks such as AIB and Bank of Ireland.


Speaking in the European Parliament, Mr Schaeuble said "it's an exaggerated expectation" that banks could access ESM funding quickly.


Asked later by a Spanish MEP if bank recapitalisation could be speedily arranged, Mr Schaeuble said: "I don't think so."

Its headline news on RTE.

Im sorry does the bad news for our special government upset you?
This country is in the sh1tter. We all know that. We don't need to be reminded every two minutes by a thread about the latest happenings in Euroland. Surely one big ongoing thread would suffice in that regard.

But its alright when Kenny announces la la land jobs and false hope and promises.

Your beloved leader is making a fool of us in Europe and gaining nothing except a joke status among the big boys and girls. Highlighting their latest failures is a pleasure.

There is no need for the Special Olympics reference in your opening post.
Why?

I actually think Angela Merkel must be thinking Kenny and Noonan are mentally challenged, who knows if that is what she thinks when she said we were special.

It's the same with the banks, credit unions and utilities bills, your never going to be cut a deal, when your paying off your debts. Stop paying and on fear of not getting anything , a deal can alway be sorted. So why with our pro EU government would we be cut a deal, when Kenny and Noonan see that private debts on Irish taxpayers shoulders makes them look good and have the attention of Merkel who othEr wise wouldn't even know their name.

He's far from it but that does not mean your OP is sound.

You would have to wonder why that is Hammer.

There is no denying this is the latest in a list of blunders by Noonan, not looking for the deal one day to admit they were looking for something the next only to be struck down by the EU hours later.

Perhaps its Kennys love of paying all the bondholders and screwing the people they like so much!

Do you all feel special, I think the special comes from Angela thinking Enda and Michael mentally challenged and very special boys.

Dude. Edit your post and take out the last line. I have a cousin who used to part take in the special olympics. Bad taste......

100%. Only when Ireland puts the whole house of cards at risk, will we be given a deal. We should all threaten to stop paying mortgages car finance, the lot. Maybe then they would listen to us.

Enda Kenny won't have 'Defaulters' written across our foreheads, but apparently has no problem with 'Mugs'.

How much of our national debt are we repaying at present ?

NIL.

We are adding €50m per day.

We have plenty of time.
