Not much to say really... I have joined this forum out of an interest in the subjects discussed here. I am a recent college graduate from Ireland currently working in a crappy job. That's about it... for now

Stannis...a friendly welcome from the US.

I'm curious to know after Ireland has been able to be quite proud of their emerging-economy over the past decade, how things have turned-out recently?

Thank you.

In the last year the economy here has crashed. Things are bad and getting worse. We have gone from a situation of long-term boom and low unemployment to spiralling debt levels, severe budget cuts and lengthening dole queues. It could be years before the economy recovers.

I imagine that things are similarly bad in the US? Especially after massive bailouts that will further indebt the treasury, maybe to breaking point? I guess it's "damned if you do and damned if you don't"; inaction could be as bad as a huge bailout, but I suspect that the US government has taken the wrong action.

Sorry to sound so gloomy, but these are gloomy times

Cheers, I hope to learn a lot from membership. The ATS kind of forum was something I used to avoid before but my natural curiosity has brought me here.

Welcome to ATS Stannis

Good to meet a fellow Irishman


I'm interested in knowing what part of Ireland you're from. As for me, I'm from Tyrone and am actually in college in Belfast myself at the moment.

Hey stannis, welcome to ATS,

Don't forget to pick up your foil pack and coupon booklet once you've been decontaminated.


Peace

I'm from the far end of the country to you - Cork.

Done and done.
