    Since we joined the E.E.C. our standard of living has risen beyond measure. This includes Daniel, I would bet his father didn't live in a lovely house with conservatory and lawn. I believe most of the crew on these boats are non Irish. It is sad though.

    I live near the fishing harbour of Howth in Dublin. Almost all crew and the people in the factories have to be imported from abroad. Irish people don’t want a dangerous and not terribly well paid job. Much as I sympathize with the trawler men, and they are nearly all men, the rest of the economy can’t suffer to protect a tiny industry.

    stiofain88 The Brotherhood of the Sea, who kept these islands alive during WW2 and lost many as a result. As WW3 may soon arrive, the Brotherhood of the Sea, may decide to withdraw their support, will you and all the others who enjoy the good life, step forward and crew the ships to keep the island afloat.

    @stiofain88 Ireland as a Island depends on Seafarers & Ships. The Ships and Seafarers may also, stop operating as similar to Fishers are being denied their rights.

    As much sympathy as i have for this man, there is no way the rest of us who aren't a fisherman or the family of fishermen are going to put 99.5% of the economy at risk for 0.5% of it.

    Yes I agree however, what use are the quotes to the UK when they can do nothing with them.?
    They can’t sell it into the EU because of red tape.
    Their own fault for leaving the EU I know, it’s sad to see we Irish in turmoil because of a stupid, and it is stupid decision of the UK to leave the biggest market they ever had.

    Ireland is going to be the biggest winner of Brexit. A lot of business will shift from the city of London to Ireland, financial, high-tech and more. Same goes for education, many EU citizens will prefer to to study in Ireland over the UK. Ireland will gain more of that, than lost in fishing.

    The UK primarily fished off Iceland in the 1970s when Iceland enforced its 200 mile exclusion zone. Was the same time we joined the EU many UK boats had to be destroyed on the EUs orders. So sad its now happening again.

    The French won't be forced to crush 33%of its fishing fleet.
    The Irish quota was bargained away by the EU to the Norwegians in return for greater access off Norway. Them same opertunities weren't on offer to the Irish fleet.

    The EU did the exact same thing with British fishing. The EU have craved up Irish fishing waters among its EU member states.

    Successive Irish Governments have let the People of the West Coast Counties down
    First it was the Salmon, Then the Herring & Mackerel now its the Whitefish Fleet,
    That is what happens when you have all yes men in Brussels the Party
    still goes on for them when the Country is sold out, Thanks to
    Fianna Fail in 73 saying we have to join the Common Market what a stroke by the Germans who
    now have full Control of our Country,

    It’s not just the Irish same thing has happened in the United States Chinese funded lobbyists have gotten laws passed that make it impossible to compete with the massive Chinese fishing fleet

Published

“You claim you are the party of family values and you nominate this guy?” President Obama laid into the Republican party choice for president, as Trump faces a snowballing scandal over sexual assault allegations.

Taking to the stage in swing-state Ohio, he said the decision was clear.

“The choice between candidates has never been this stark. It’s a choice between somebody who is as qualified as has ever been… That’s on the one hand. And then on the other hand you’ve got somebody who each and e…

Published

Anders Breivik, the man who admitted killing 77 people in a bombing and shooting spree in Norway last year, has appeared before the cameras for the first time since the murders as he attended his final detention hearing before his trial begins in April.

He called on the Oslo court to award him a medal for the attacks and he added “I acknowledge the acts but I plead not guilty.”

Many of the survivors were in the packed courtroom.
