    Yes ... thats why I stopped being concerned about Ireland paying back immense debts to the IMF, ECB back in November.

    So much of Ireland's official stats (as with other western nations) is an accountants folly and only exists in the head of the DoF and statisticians that I realised when the IMF came in that the real situation will have been obvious to them.

    Working on the assumption that import and export figures are ... eh ... theoretical in some respects plus the amount of off-balance sheet liabilities there are likely to be then I doubt Ireland has the ability to pay off a debt mountain.

    I think orderly default is the only way forward but we'll see as I don't obviously have the real data to tell.
    Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.

    Joe McNamara has said he is happy to have been cleared of criminal damage and dangerous driving at Leinster House. udge Ann Watkin at the Dublin District Court dismissed the charges of dangerous driving and criminal damage, to which McNamara had pleaded not guilty. She also dismissed charges of not having a certificate of road worthiness and failing to produce a driving licence because Garda witnesses did not make notes about cautioning McNamara on these issues.

    A good judgement. The videos showed that he drove really carefully

    Congratulations to Joe McNamara.

    Good stuff. Sounds like there's a judge with her wits about her. Makes you wonder though considering the poppets over at the DPP obviously decided there were charges to answer and made a complete **** of it by not actually seeing whether there was actually any evidence for criminal damage.

    Nice waste of public money. Should be worth promotions all round.

    Had almost forgotten about Joe McNamara.
    13 JULY 2013A CITY council has been forced to write off a debt of almost €500,000 owed by a property developer – because of a typographical error.

    he error by Galway City Council was included in a grant of planning permission for a residential development on the eastern side of the city.The typo meant development levies did not need to be paid on nearly 100 homes. A condition of planning permission was that levies were to be paid in respect of each apartment, but it failed to include houses, which formed most of the development.
    The council brought High Court action against Harrmack Developments to recover €467,389. However, it has now been revealed that the council dropped the action earlier this year following legal advice.
    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-29417024.html
    Galway City Council had been engaged in a lengthy legal battle with Harrmack Developments over the payment of levies owed to it.Harrmack Developments was co-founded in 2002 by Stephen Harris (Harr) and Joe McNamara (Mack) -- who became known as the "Anglo Avenger" due to his parking of a cement mixer truck at the gates of Leinster House last year.
    Mr McNamara left the company in 2006, but Mr Harris went on to become one of the biggest developers in Galway and owns the Twelve Hotel in Barna, Co Galway.
    A city council spokeswoman confirmed that Harrmack Developments still owed it €468,389 in unpaid levies at Fionnuisce estate in Doughiska, Co Galway; and another €393,275 for a development of apartments at Fionnuisce, Co Galway, which were half-built.
    Development levies are charged by councils to cover the cost of providing services such as roads, sewage treatment and water supplies to new estates.
    The council said "legal advice was being sought" in relation to whether any of this money could be recovered now that Harrmack Developments had gone into voluntary liquidation with debts of €15.7m.
