I couldn't help but notice, the difference in one of Ayman Al Gilmore's old parties alternative budget and his government's budget today.

The enthusiasm of people at a recent business offer presentation in the Dublin hotel was contagious. The queues for foreign jobs at a job fare was the opposite. A constant contagion of exploitation of those in need is evident in offers for opportunities offered.

The promise of cheap holidays and earnings from investing in this hope is growing tiresome. read full story / add a comment

Successive Irish governments have overseen the fluoridation of public water supplies since the practice commenced in 1964. This form of mass medication is supposed to benefit the nation's teeth.

Today 97% of Europe's water supply is fluoride free, including Northern Ireland, as this practice has been widely discredited. Eire remains the only country to fluoridate its entire public water supply. read full story / add a comment
