Mid-Year Tax Update

Looking glass

I am sitting at my desk and looking out the window craving the Azores high to hurry bloody up. I covet the Azores high. Covet is a word we don’t hear too often, and it has associations with something you must not do. Like covet your neighbour’s wife! Or in the olden days your neighbour’s

Hi there from gorgeous Sunny Tramore. Please let it stay like this for the long weekend. It’s Friday yeah! I was a very happy man last weekend. Amazing weather, so we took a trip to Kilkenny and had a lovely stroll around the grounds of Kilkenny Castle. There was a bustling market outside, with amazing

Hello there from very dull, foggy, dank Tramore. The seagulls can’t locate the chips on the prom with the fog. They are wondering when Summer will start, and the chatter is about holidays abroad. The football hasn’t done anything to brighten my spirits. Man Utd managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Very
