Thread: Ireland. Sale on Now!

  1. #1

    Default Ireland. Sale on Now!

    Often the First Original Thought is the Deepest!

    After the Celtic Tiger boom, or if you like, the busy season, what do successful retail businesses do?

    They have a sale of course!

    I propose all Hotels, B&Bs, Restaurants, pubs, Theatres, Concert venues, and tourist traps in Ireland announce a National Sale this wintertime.
    Airlines and Ferries should cut prices and we should invite the whole world to Ireland!

    All communities should be encouraged to decorate their local areas with bunting and lights and free Irish music should be heard everywhere. Especially those lovely melodic songs that once were heard in all the best films set in or about Ireland.

    It's my belief most foreigners here come for the Walt Disney Ireland. Let's give it to them.
    Once upon a time in the retail businesses we were told the customer is always right! I think for the most part that is still the truth of the matter.

    Let's get those Irish loving foreigners back in the largest numbers ever.

    A bargain is a bargain!

    The Biggest growth in European Tourists are coming from China. Our Government couldn't be ars*d changing their visa legislation.

    Best thing to do is have a national "dig behind the sofa" day

    Ireland is it's own advertisement.
    I really do speak and have spoken to many thousands of foreign tourists over the years.

    You may have an good idea there Maurice, if practicaly impossible to organise. At the same time, it's when lots of people come to a place that the hotels etc jack up the price, not the other way around.

    You're right about the Walt Disney Ireland though. I'll give you a good example, the Blarney Stone. A great example of Skiddly-idle-dee Irish culture. Kiss the stone and get the gift og the gab. We all cringe... but... what is the gift of the gab exactly? I'd say it's the ability to talk an American into paying €20 to kiss a stone, no?

    On the plus side, hundreds of academics will be coming over to research papers on 'Cronyism', 'Corruption', 'How to fk a good economy' and, of course, 'How to bankrupt a country'.
