Re: Is it worth swapping UK to Irish residency

Born in NI ? Well in case you've missed the news the Shinners intend to hold a United Ireland Referendum when they become the Government in Dublin soon. You'll be Irish then anyway :D :D :D :D

Re: Malaga airport traffic

Flew to Ireland last night (17th). Arrived into departures at 17.30. Carry on bag only so no need to bag drop etc. Ten minutes to get through security. It would have been less if it wasn't for the stupid couple that had big bottles of liquid (did they arrive in Spain on foot or perhaps by train ? ? ...

I'm now at €19.60 a day for three weeks in June. So €412 for 21 days. This is the third time I've made the booking and it started at late nine hundreds, so this is a result.

Re: Birmingham airport nightmare

Be very thankful that you are not flying from Dublin airport. Airlines are advising passengers to arrive 4 yes 4 hours before their flight. Things have gotten so bad that Aer Lingus are now allowing passengers who have luggage to go into the hold to check it in at the airport the evening before the...

Re: No covid passport for Andalucian night clubs

Got my second vaccine here in Dublin and got my Digital Passport two days later by email. I've used it for travel to Switzerland and being in the EU we don't need PCR tests to enter or leave countries using the Digital Passport. For the record Ireland has passed out the UK for fully vaccinated adult...

Re: Car theft

I am concerned about it as we are taking our car to Marbella in September. The parking at our apartment building is surface level, with no security gates. Any tips for protecting a car from theft? Are you from Shrewsbury Road ? :wink: I think you are over thinking the whole situation. Is your car a...

Re: Is PCR test required for entry to Spain?

Has anyone on this forum entered Spain from the UK or an EU member state recently, through any airport or port? Is proof of negative (i.e. no COVID) PCR test still required on entry? (PCR test costs approximately 150 euros in Ireland.) Government advice is not to travel from Ireland. This afternoon...

Re: No tourists until after summer

If they cross the border at Gib before the Gib/Spain deal is signed off then the UK passport will get stamped by Spanish immigration. That will be a tough one to deny when they land back in the UK....so they will get treated like they have been in Spain in terms of quarantine etc On radio today the...

Re: Positive health news

Article published one minute into April fools day. I wonder if that's anything to take into account. Although my mother drank two (large) glasses of red wine every night for 35 years while she lived in Spain and only had reading glasses................. so maybe that validates it :-)

Re: The sweet sounds of someone being murdered in alhaurin campo !!

In my parents time in rural Ireland people would talk about hearing a "Banshee crying". It was as you have found out a fox looking for sex ! I've heard the same and have tried to keep the dog quiet.
