Build a new island due south, off the Bay of Biscay?

Too rough in the Bay of Biscay. Let's drive the Mafia out of Sicily... I knew the Limerick gangs would come in useful at some stage...

Build an island?
Suppose we could. We have the abilities anyway.

Jaysus, we used to be great builders back in the day. I remember back in the heady days of 2007 we were building everywhere, great big yokes.... drunken

How about using the money that the National Lottery has to buy EuroMillions tickets?

We could all get along to the coast with our oars, and row our way south to the Canaries?
At least we'd have some sunshine with our economic woes.

We could sell Sligo to the USA for 20 Billion and rename it East Manhattan.

This would give us dosh and fix our construction slump in one go.

Edit: The Russians did it ....

Can't we hypnotize everybody into being confident and believing that things are getting better? If it works in only half the attempts, then the economy is saved...

Having a bout of optimism johnfás? It'll quickly be dispelled by a look at the end of primetime this evening

Sure he's only talking about the next few years. I'm 23, I'm hopefully still going to be living for another sixty years or so. I'm optimistic things won't stagnate throughout my life. Sixty years ago the world was only just recovering from WW2 and the computer was barely invented.

That's because you believe God will save you. I've only got a Taoiseach FFS. Your God beats my Taoiseach any day.

Well that's proof right there.

I know ... We should boost our tourism sector a bit more by following this plan !!! Paris and San Diego have Disneyland and we could have this ...



BAG END!!! If we built it then maybe all the children would leave Disneylands all over the planet to see Bilbo's place.

Why stop at Bag End ??!! We could and should go on to construct the entirety of Hobbiton and then get people to sit around all day smoking weed out of pipes etc. There would be bonus salaries for people who would be brave enough to go around without shoes and cultivate feet-hair. In fact I don't understand why we wouldn't make lazy fukcers on the dole just do this work for us for free.



Maybe we should go the whole hog and build Swan Ships near the Havens too. All this might work over around East Clare where they were going to put up some turbines that would have generated free electricity after 5 years, and saved the following: 6billion tons of co2, 8400 deaths from co2-related industries, 69904 animals from co2-related deaths, several dozen local people from cancerous tumors suspected to have come from hightension cables, and more but the locals objected on aesthtetic grounds.



I know the Government and the IDA won't do this though Crying or Very sad

They'll be sorry ...
