          I had my first summer job at 13 and every summer after to buy the ” glad rags ” deemed non essentials in the household budget, it was great for my confidence, bank balance, kept me out of trouble, learned new skill sets ( answering phone, taking messages, counting stock, laminating menus etc, shredding, photocopies and so on ), I loved that weekly envelope of mulah, there should be an option for kids to do summer jobs.

          Like J, I had paper rounds and coal rounds in my teens. Summer jobs down the golf. Kids leave school never having done a hard days work these days.

            Getting your own cash young is both awesome and vital. Independence first and learning that going nuts means a lean week. You look at your mom, in my case, different. Like, how the hell does she do it? Plus I bought my first motorbike which changed everything.

      Only a brain eating bacteria could lead someone to believe that Dubliners in the Liffey is a popular trend
