Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
No disrespect Diaspora, but inner-city Dublin is still not a pleasant experience (with the exception of Grafton Street).
Having lived in Paris and Brussels I find our nations capital to be a dreadfully uninspiring place. I have lived here for quite a while now and will soon return to the continent.
My long-term goal of course is to return to Cork, which is why I am so keen to see Cork establish itself in sectors other than the Pharma-Health Industry sphere. To date we have been at a disadvantage in attracting ICT and Financial operations due to the fact that both Limerick and Dublin can offer direct access to transatlantic flights, and both areas enjoy tax-free areas… which is clear and unambiguous proof that Cork has been at an unfair disadvantage due to central government policy for a very long period of time.
