    You always know the “homes” of the super wealthy by the odd arrangement of chairs.

    The curtains in the last pic are a disgrace.

    I’ll never understand why rich people focus on making their homes really uncomfortable places to live.

    I’m sure a lot of stuff is brought in as staging for the photos, but still. You’d be afraid to sit down anywhere.

      …and a couple of Magrittes, Miro and Kandinsky…B of I profit hanging on the walls of that room alone…can’t imagine Seanie or Fingers even having a White Lady…

    More than just him made cash off BOI shares when they were that low. Wasn’t a risk-free investment in the slightest; and it prevented the state having to generate more debt to buy in.

    Who are all the chairs for
    Tis like a hotel reception area

    Anyway
    Those BoI shares were for sale to anyone
    Who had the price and the wild risk appetite that an Irish Bank needed to make them palatable

    He’s the lad that showed up
    Who gives a ûck what his curtains are like

      a low point. sold them at a slightly higher point. some people here were inexplicably angry who probably didn’t understand that it had no ill effect on Ireland at all.

    Give it a rest Bodger. You supported Trump. Looking forward to the in- depth expose on the Goldman Sachs guys who will run the US economy and the multiple inevitable Trump corruption scandals lol!

        We’ve had this before. Two horse race, the numbers for a third couldn’t make a difference.

        Anti Hillary was, by definition, pro Trump. That’s not a pop at Bodger; it’s a pop at anybody hiding behind “but I was just anti Hillary”.

        1. bisted

          …a plague on all their houses…I was so pleased to see crooked Hilary snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…nobody knows what will come with Trump but the hawkish, pro-zionist stance of clinton was a known known…

          1. Nigel

            That this wasn’t even in the top five stupidest pro-Trump arguments doesn’t detract from how stupid it is.

          2. ivan

            That’s a pro Trump sentiment. Nothing wrong with that, inasmuch as it’s a bald statement of opinion.

            Weaseling with ‘I’m just anti Hillary rather than pro-Trump’ is where I’ve the problem.

            Jaykers – is there a chance that the Russians got to Bodger as well?

        2. Boj

          That is just a silly stance to take ivan. I was anti hillary and trump like half of the flippin planet. To say you are anti hillary is not to say you are pro-trump. No one is weaseling out of anything, they just don’t like either candidate. Open your mind, it hurts at the start, but you get used to it.

          1. ivan

            It’s not.

            Consequences have actions; if you take the position of undermining HRC, what follows from that, where there’s a binary choice? It’s pro The Other Candidate.

            It’s different where a third candidate has a shot at the title, but that doesn’t apply here.

        3. Clampers Outside!

          Over 40% didn’t vote…. I suppose you call them Trump supporters too…. LOL! Anything to justify your anger at losing and some excuse to throw blame elsewhere other than at the Democrats themselves.

          * puts toys back in all the Dem prams to best of ability, and walks away…. hearing the toys being thrown out again *

    Surrounded by concrete, no garden, random chairs and poky rooms, apart from that one large overly curtained one.

    Zero imagination.
    Money can’t buy style.

      1. Goodnight Ireland

        You have been told this would be enjoyable by Hollywood. Give me a cottage on the wind swept coast of Ireland with some old bird I married 40 years ago.

        1. Harry Molloy

          My good man, that cottage in Connemara with a nice stove, a lean to shed stacked with aged chopped wood, an overfilled bookshelf, a fridge full of steaks and a corner shelf filled with good red wine is, in reality, my achievable dream and is where I hope to spend my weekends 10 years down the line. I’ll bring herself too :-)

          1. Harry Molloy

            Absolutely one day, the nice thing about these dreams is there’s a great chance they will happen, because you can make it happen

          2. Harry Molloy

            my neighbour at home has donkeys and, aside from waking you up at dawn the odd morning, they’re amazing. he says they walk over and talk to him each morning. huge servants to rural Ireland over the years, such a shame they’re forgotten.

            AND they all have a cross on their back since they carried the holy family to Bethlehem!
