Uploaded on 2 Mar 2011 Documentary of the boom years in Ireland and the U.K, and the rapid collapse of the economy, which hit the construction/development industry across the country, leaving thousands of premium houses unoccupied or semi-built. Billions of pounds were lost and individual property developers /agents were left with tens of millions of pounds of debt, and home seekers were given cheap mortgages which have since been lost or repossessed due to high unemployment when the indusry collapsed… This video was made within 4 days of the election which saw an even worse government – the Fine Gael/Labour [More]
Published on 12 Feb 2014 Directed and edited by Marcus Howard. Interviews with a selection of people relating to the housing crisis in Ireland who mention their experience.

Note: This matter was finally resolved by the government in December 2014. It is a remarkable story. A builder who has no sense of responsibility for it; a government that left the building industry to ‘self-regulation’ that led to it (and many another like it throughout the country) was like leaving the Fox in charge of the hen house; and the desperate unbelievable penniless plight of the people who have been through hell. And the main men riding the roost? The bankers of course – they lent the money against a worthless asset with full knowledge as they always employ [More]

It’s interesting that the Irish Independent newspaper, which leaked these recorded phone conversations between Anglo-Irish bankers at the outset of the financial crisis in Ireland in 2008, sat on these tapes for some time (how long is unknown), and that the Irish government has asked them to curtail the release of further recordings because of its “concern about the potential consequences of the emergence of certain other [More]
And this is a perfect reflection and summary account of the person he was. Makes you really wonder what he would have thought of the yokels that have ruined the country since he died.
Here is a classic expose of DeVilera’s duplicity and his idiotic posturing. This introduction to the position he took when Churchill wanted him to support the war effort. Neutrality made have been a cool thing to do if it was a decision behind closed doors but what failed him for that to be possible, was that DeValera treated Irish soldiers who went and fought in WW2 and returned later in the most abominable fashion. To my mind he and his Fianna Fail party were like Pol Pot in Cambodia without the largesse of murder of bodies just murder of minds.
