    No doubt a rather lax attitude had developed over the years, but that was a problem with management rather than the low ranking workers. An ordinary worker can't just make up things to do for himself in a place like Dublin Airport. The irony here is that when Aer Lingus was privatized it was sold to the same management team. Have they since improved their management methods? I doubt it. I certainly see a great decline in the standard of service from Aer Lingus. Like the rest of these privatized companies, they don't make their savings from actually doing things better - but just by replacing native Irish workers with cheap immigrant labour. A case in point is Eircom. You would have to be mad to think the service from this company has improved after privatization. I made an order last week to upgrade to fiber optic. The young girl who took the order mistakenly wrote down some details. I've since had to make five phone calls to the company to try to sort it out - and its still not in order. Today, when I rang up I was answered by an African who couldn't understand what I was saying and I could hardly understand him either. He was highly indignant when I asked to speak to an Irish person. Even still, the issue is not resolved.

    Well, it's easy enough to laugh, but a bit of council work like this on the roads kept many an Irish family in the rural areas from starvation over the years.

    Up The Road


    Lyrics and Music by Richie Kavanagh
    (Richie) “Johnny were ya good at the riddles going to school”
    (Johnny) “I was’ent too bad lad” (Richie) “Right listen to this…”

    What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?
    What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?

    (Johnny) I think I know now what it is, I know the answer of your quiz.
    Sure that auld thing is as auld as sin, I think its an egg inside of a hen.

    (Richie) “No Johnny, no your wrong. Listen, listen to the auld song Johnny, listen.”
    (Richie) What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?
    What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An never touches no part of the road at all?

    (Johnny) I think this time I am in luck, I think its a egg inside of a duck.
    Me Granny taught me all them rhymes, years ago in the good auld times.

    (Richie) “No Johnny, your wrong again. Listen to it again, we’ll give ya another chance, listen Lad.”
    (Richie) What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?

    What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road<
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?

    (Johnny) “Its quar hard lad, sing it again”
    (Richie) What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?

    What goes up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touches no part of the road at all?

    (Richie) I think I’ll have to give ya a clue. With a job like this, yad have little ta do.
    Just move around now and again….

    (Johnny) Be jabores I think its the council men.
    (Richie) Well done Johnny, yer a good one.

    (Richie) They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.

    They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.

    (Richie) They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.
    They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.

    (Richie) They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.

    They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,
    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.
    (Richie) Up the road and down the road over the road and back the road.

    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.
    They go up the road and down the road over the road and back the road,

    An’ never touch no part of the road at all.

    Timmy, a chara, sorry Champ!!! would you ever shut the fcuk up about stuff you know nothing about.

    Of course the service in Aer Lingus isn’t what it used to be.

    Neither are the prices,a chara, neither are the prices.

    Grow up man, take a break from hosing slurry all over our forum.

    It's not as simple as that a chara. Anyone from the EU can just walk in here and apply for a job at Dublin Airport - and they will be more likely to get that job than an Irish person as bosses think we Irish are uppedy and not desperate enough.

    The prices are cheaper because the Irish workers have been replaced by cheap immigrant labour. Not for any other reason.

    Ill agree with this. I can recall a few years ago clicking around on the Aer Lingus Web Site without being able to book the flight I wanted. After several attempts clicking here and there always ending up in the same wrong place with lots of cursing I gave up and booked Ryanair with a couple of clicks and then gave up even attempting to fly Aer Lingus for a couple of years after that.

    Since then they have re-done their Web Site it and Ive had no such problems in recent times.
