Are you sure Ireland is that much different than plenty of other EU countries when it comes to housing or homelessness? The UK is in the middle of a huge housing crises. Germany has an estimated 500,000 thousand homeless and that was before the refugees arrived. They just do their best to ignore the problem. Sweden has about the same % wise as ireland. The problem in France is obvious if you have ever been in Paris. The present issues in Ireland are relatively new and are been dealt with.

Health is not good but then again you get what you are prepared to pay for. The best countries in Europe have very costly and compulsory private health insurance schemes. My brother paid almost €500 a month for cover in Germany but yet had to transfer to the US to get a good service for his Down syndrome son. Worst of all he must continue to pay 50% of the premium in case he ever went back to Germany. (he's now 6 years in the states where he pays a big premium there as well) . In ireland, once you get past the trolley stage you get fantastic treatment for as little as €75 a day in hospital.

On the schools and hungry kids. All DEIS (disadvantaged areas, urban and rural) schools , primary and secondary (well over 800 in total) are entitled to provide a free breakfast to the kids that want it. The scheme is dependent on a teacher over seeing it. A huge % of entitled schools do work the scheme with teachers volunteering their time. Schools can also access a dept of social welfare scheme that subsidies school lunches for 1000's of kids. Also with the help of teachers, some schools that have a need avail of the food cloud program.

This country may not be perfect but its still ONE of the BEST to live in and bring up a family in, in the world, never mind Europe.

The Irish don't riot and hardly ever protest. That is why we have the worst health and housing crisis in the EU. Thousands on trolleys in.hospitals all over the country and some children hungry in school as we have no school dinners in any of our public school.....primary or secondary..

European financial sector, and particularly banks with exposure to the UK have significantly outperformed in the recent rally over
the past week. Cheap Price/ Book valuations of European banks and a clear shift in sentiment towards the “Remain” camp in the
most recent BREXIT opinion polls has attracted investors to the sector. The most recent opinion polls suggest 65% of UK voters
now wish to remain in the EU which has been a big boon to the Sterling Pound in recent weeks. Bank of Ireland, which has 44% of
its loan book originating in the UK has rallied c. 12% on the week, helped by renewed strength in the Sterling Pound which has
seen EURGBP trade down to a 75p handle. Continued weakness in EURGBP should be beneficial to BOI‟s share price, and we
see 27.2c is the key near term resistance, 3.4% above yesterday‟s close. AIB‟s strong Q1/16 trading update from Tuesday has also
boosted sentiment towards Irish financials. BREXIT risks have been a big overhang to Permanent TSB in recent months as it has
delayed the sale of its €3.8bn CHL UK loan book. However, the recent shift in BREXIT sentiment has also attracted buyers in
PTSB, taking advantage of deeply oversold positions and extremely cheap P/TNAV valuations. PTSB is up 15% on the week, and
we see continued upside to our €2.66 target price.

: )

Bank of Ireland is fairly valued and in line with its plans, hopes to redeem some €1.3 billion in preference shares outstanding (scheduled to happen before July), subsequently it could start to conserve capital and start paying a dividend in 2017.

Macro picture also looks positive. Ireland, Europe's poster child for recovery, continues to grow and be a base for big pharma and tech. Unlike other EU nations, there is very little unrest and not one riot. Furthermore, the latest polls indicate that Britain will stay in EU and even Boris Johnson's own father won't support his argument.

hey, 2CV. Have not seen you on here for a while. I was thinking you had given up on our little fkir. It has now been a year since Mulligans. I think I have the same optimism about the possibilities for this stock although we are a lot further back down the road now. Now we are counting on Cantor's prediction just to get us back where we were then.

hope all else is good in your world

After more than eight years in the value, today I sold my shares BKIR package, with few gains compared to my expectations.
Bank of Ireland continues to have great potential, but is being manipulated much more than other companies in which I invest and I do not despair.

Good luck and greetings to all.
