    What's the bet those joints will be packed by the working class after pubs and clubs close on Friday?
    So much for solidarity.

    People will be less likely to do so if there's a campaign set up to boycott these outlets and raise awareness of the issues. Which is why I set this thread up. Anyone who feels strongly enough should link to this page via facebook or email and share it with their friends and relations. This has to be a mass boycott campaign if it's to have any effect.

    and a boycott would do a wonder for reducing the nation's cellulite, too.

    Up lettuce!!! Preferably home grown, of course!!

    Think of your thighs, boys and girls!

    McDonagh pockets €26 million by selling his own properties to Supermacs and

    http://www.irishtimes.com/business/r...deal-1.2446671

    The Supermac’s business has made Mr McDonagh, on paper, among the wealthiest self-made entrepreneurs in the west of Ireland. Accounts show the group, which is owned outright by Mr McDonagh and his wife, grew sales last year by 18 per cent to €93 million. It paid him rent of more than €1.6 million last year.

    After a writedown of €2.6 million related to money owed by a group company, Supermac’s made net profits of €5.7 million in 2014, bringing its total retained profits to almost €60 million. “We had a good year last year and we’ve plenty of growth on the east coast this year. The good year for tourism helped,” he said.
    Hotel purchases
    The 2014 balance sheet says the group, which this year also bought the Killeshin and Charleville Park hotels, has shareholders’ funds of €59 million, although the business would likely fetch far north of this if Mr McDonagh were ever to sell.

    When asked if he was weighing up cashing out of the business entirely, he said: “Not in the slightest. We are only getting going.”

    Supermac’s opens another outlet next week in Belfast, opposite Casement Park GAA ground. Mr McDonagh is also investing in new motorway service stations to go with his Obama Plaza in Offaly. He also owns Claddagh Irish Pubs, which has 11 outlets in the US.
