Just to exchange ideas and thoughts.

Somewhere informal perhaps?

Really I haven't thought through what this might achieve, other than giving a few of us a chance to chat to like minded people once in a while.

I live near Carryduff, so perhaps a gathering in that area?

Suggestions welcome.

Carryduff is a funny place - no pub!

Will have a think....

Anybody else in the Belfast area?

Are there any interested parties on this forum (apart from myself) in the republic?

Anyone living in Kinsale, for instance?

Hi all!

I have been a lurker for quiet a period (sounds like an AA confession ..)
just havent the time to register etc....

Im amazed at the lack of particpants form ireland both north and south.
I contacted Cultivate/sustainable ireland some time back to see if they would set up a powerswith type forum as not everyone can attend their events and some type of online powerdown local forum would be useful in an irish context but all to no avail.

Very interesting that your posting gets 1078 views and 5 replies! Must be a lot of shy closet PO doomers in Nornireland Wink

I am always up to meet

I find that Cultivate/ Sustainable Ireland are quite cliquey Dublincentric
trendies with a good line of funding they want to hang on to and unlikely
to propmote any democratic forum where the party line or wisdom might be questioned.

Just the way it goes

Smile

Only 2 years late...

Not a good sign Sad

Welcome GordyJ - yep a bit disappointing that there aren't a few more from Norn Irelan. Maybe they are just lurkers...... feel free to register and post..... Smile

Why are you thinking of moving back to Belfast if it is not to personal a question?

Pure and simply work, had wanted to buy when the arse has fallen out of the market but my mother has persuaded me to hold fire and perhaps let the market sink further.

I work in Belfast for the Civil Service so most jobs will be around there.
