TG4 is exactly what a Public Service Broadcaster should be providing. A few changes could be made to make it more accessable like having the programmes in English with Irish subtitles but overall it's fine. The station has it's own identity so putting it's programmes on RTE Two wouldn't work. There are plenty of other places in RTE where savings could be made.

Brilliant, Holly and PJ. Very funny
For any of you guys that haven't changed over yet. The Great Satan Tesco has receivers for €39 each that'll do the job just fine.
I bought a micro wave oven there. I didn't start at Tesco. I went into my local hardware store, they had some on sale. The shopkeeper looked me in the eye smiled like the honest man he is and declared the for sale ones were gone. I pointed to the one with the sign on it saying Xprice. He said he was minding it for its new owner, but I could have another one at a special price just for me of double the price of the one for sale.....I told him I would check.
I crossed the road and strolled to another local hardware store. I walked into the shop pointed to a microwave and asked the price. Its sold and he didn't have any more, he said. I told him I was going to Tesco.
I went to Tesco. It may be a great Satan but a greedy gombeen tool learned a lesson that if he's lucky may save his shop when others are closing around him.
There are a lot of local shops making a good effort and I don't mind paying a little extra to support them if possible. My local corner store is cheaper for things like briquettes than Tesco, cigarettes, newspapers are the same price and help keep up the turnover in these small shops. There's a lot to be said for variety.
