    And of course that other ' well known centre of religious equality ' in Belfast, the old Shorts Brothers refurbished aircraft for ' The ' Don ' in the 1920's and 30's.

    BTW, how many ' jaffas ' worked / work in the ' Don ?

    Its amazing the lads who refuse to accept that their is a border

    32 counties- 4 green fields etc.

    and then when something like this kicks in the claim- why give it to a foreign country...

    Either that, or it was the result of some really low flying in a Marchetti!

    I'm glad to see people are being so sensible about this contract - in difficult economic times it's not easy for everyone to keep a sense of perspective. There's a larger lesson here too - open markets save the tax payer money.

    Doesnt matter where he is from The contractor will be obliged (by law) to pay his workers the Registered Employment Agreement Rates of pay for the construction industry enrol them in the pension scheme etc. Ihope he factored it into his tender as the contract from dept would mention it.

    The big issue is probably that a County Councillor from Ballyshannon has a cousin who's a building contractor and he's miffed because he didn't get the job.

    There's a few names for the 27th, I refuse to discuss specifics though.

    Would there be a thread if the British army tendered for some building work and a firm in Dundalk won it, its called the free market gents.
    Exactly. Kingspan from Co.Cavan won a contract to do part of the MI6 HQ building in London.

    if so- hell no.

    I thought you were ex 5 Bn though?
    My parent unit was 2 Field Sigs but I spent a lot time attached to Inf units. Served at different times attached to 5Bn 27Bn and 29Bn. It was not unusual to have Sig Corps personnel attached to the 70s/early 80s.
