Killary scuba diving weekend

TrionaGalway - A group of 13 from the company left their Dublin comforts behind to venture into the underwater world at Lenane. After an intensive scuba diving course with Oceantec we were soon on our way to Galway to stay in Killary Lodge.

Three/four amazing dives, two nights of drinking, two delicious meals and a load of sore heads later, we were reluctantly on our way back to Dublin after having a great weekend. Thanks to Willie, Sarah, Dee, Derek and all the instructors, and the staff of Killary for providing such a good service and making the weekend so enjoyable.

There is another scuba diving course being arranged for employees. I would recommend it for sheer enjoyment, and also you get your PADI card at the end so you can rent gear all over the world. It couldn't be easier to do the course, the teaching takes place in the boardroom and then it's down to the pool afterwards for the practicals. If you are interested, give Richard Darby a shout.

House party!

Ranelagh - As is usual for Waltzer, I am extending my birthday over a number of weeks. This is the last week of my birthday, and to celebrate I am having a house party in my flat in Ranelagh on Friday.

Now it is fairly small, but if you are a friend or even just good looking, come along and enjoy the banter and the craic (as they say in Ireland). It'll be at around 10 until late. I'll be taking pictures for the site, so put on your best stitches. No doubt I'll be in O'Shea's until then, so you can join me there if you like, or meet us at the flat later.

 That Wrecks Me Buzz

Insurance fury

By Moose.

MooseAs a 29 year old tenant living in rented accommodation in a very secure premises and in a good area of Dublin , I have just been informed by a top insurance broker that no company in Ireland will give me personal contents insurance. My crime to evoke such a rebuttal: the fact that I live with two other tenants, who, in the words of the broker, could easily allow people and friends in. They in turn could steal articles belonging to me.

However, some tenants are covered, such as married couplesno company in Ireland will give me personal contents insurance with children, children I presume who will have no friends whatsoever! But if lucky enough that they do, their friends, even the teenage ones will be of such high moral standing that insurance cover will pose no threat whatsoever. I find it astonishing that, as a nation forced to rent through spiralling house prices, once again we can have such blatant bias against such a large percentage of society.

Now that wrecks me buzz.
