Irish Bars

Are places to avoid IMHO. Usually Vastly overpriced and full of pretend Irishmen.

{I'm 25% Irish with lots of relatives in Co Mayo}

Then Budwiser is not beer. Can we all agree on that?

It is from my time in Saudi, Abu Dhabi and Dubai very easy to spend all your income. I made a point of putting 25% away as soon as I got paid. A nice little nest egg for when I came home.

Also (from my time there at least) your income is ONLY free of UK Tax if you are out of the country for a whole TAX year. Not a Calendar year and not 12 months. It is April to April. This got me the first time (A certain G.Brown changed the rules while I was in Abu Dhabi).
