I can be guilty of that too Snowy but, then, the chatterbox in me takes over :lol: :lol:

I love the Anseo !! When I was a child at Carysfort National School we had the roll every morning and they called out our Irish names. At five years of age there I was answering Anseo ! brings me right back :o

O.K. time for a good moan.

During the snow the state told us to stay in and don't go to work.
During the storms the state told us to stay in and closed the parks.
During the heatwave the state tells us to stay in and not turn on our water, not to wash, not to fill the paddling pools, not to water plants.....

Every snowy country for millions of years has been getting on with their everyday life as if nothing is altered..
Every hot and tropical country gets through the heat NORMALLY and gets on with it...just let us be normal like every country and stop moaning on the T.V and media about dire consequences.

There were farmers on the telly last night standing in their dry fields moaning about shortages...every country I visit has huge field wide sprinklers watering crops...get with the plot Irish farmers...get the equipment and do the job!!!

I was watching that Rocker, absolute disgrace, farms with no water for two days with all that livestock and they had to travel elsewhere to bring in water just for the livestock. Irish Water at work. Not enough revenue in farming for the government is there? But I bet for all the breweries and other industries that use untold amounts of water daily it's business as usual. Absolute disgrace. Oh I already said that.

It appears that it is brewed in other countries, whilst using their national water supply for production. I wonder do these foreign breweries distribute product within their indigenous and adjacent markets? Most likely is the answer.

Whilst it is easily to find ways of defending the profiteering monster that is Diageo by pointing the finger towards other countries, as far as I am concerned that is for the people of those countries to deal with and I very much doubt that they can deny St. James’s Gate Brewery is the biggest stout export brewery in the world. Even Diageo say such in their fact sheet #2 https://www.guinness-storehouse.com/content/pdf/factsheets/factsheet_pdf_6.pdf and since the FG leader opened the James Gate Brew house No.4 75% of Guinness made here is exported.

Indeed St James’s Gate is now responsible for 35% of all beer produced by Diageo worldwide and that's before we get to all the other drinks. I have talked about this before and feel its worth pointing out again .... it takes over 35 litre's of water to make ONE bottle of Whiskey ! making alcohol is water intensive and and VERY profitable for the makers https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2018/01/irish-whiskey-exports-up-by-20-to-e600m/.

Its been discussed here before ... water is the new 'gold' and most Irish people see it as a right, its only the profiteers that see it as a commodity to be sold to the highest bidder.

Obviously anything can be defended, as there is always an opposing viewpoint. I recall that Diageo have a well on their Dublin site, which if present, permits the Riparian constitutional right to use such, with legislative regulation.

http://www.flooding.ie/Farming/RightsRe ... andowners/

Interesting information on the above link from the Office of Public Works.Therefore, its clear that constitutional property rights come into play, which a company can avail of, to permit it to be capable of using legal rights similar to a natural person, just like you and me. Therefore a company can legally buy, sell and profit from its property as it so decides, through its officers, anything it owns. So if they own the well....
No point in moaning.

Maybe the source of the well needs to be fully traced with all landowners informed along the way. I'm sure Mr Diagio would be happy to adhere to the Riparian rights of all those identified, especially those who have lost out after he has had his fill from the fountain of profit each year.

Everyone is on the radio this morning having a dig at the poor weather and water or lack of it and the gulf stream ….Is there no forward planning??
Did the Councils not tell Irish Water where the leaks were??
Did the farmers never think of sinking rain water harvesting containers???
Why did the farmers allow the big supermarket chains drive down the vegetable prices till there was no profit margin??
Why hit the low hung fruit...the householder (Dublin)???
The climate is changing...have we no experts anywhere in our country who could think of solutions to problems???

Whilst every word of that is true and makes sense .... it is wasted as it does contain enough cryptic words to bamboozle the average punter. Maybe the addition of some Latin phrases would make it legitimate enough to sound intimidating and generate fear among the decision making clique. :lol:

I thought Megan and Harry would have had Kingstown on their itinerary...but no they went to the Epic Museum instead. I wonder who sets the itinerary for those visits? Do they just go along with what they are told to visit? Wouldn't it have been a boost to Wetherspoons if they had had a bit of nosh there?? or looked in on the Lexicon ?? a stroll down the pier and an ice cream in Teddys :lol: :lol: :lol:
