“Trick or treat, smell my feet!”

Now that I have reached the “GOOD” side of 50! I am rapidly become less and less tolerant! Maybe even more grumpy! In fact Mrs Garland and the rest of the Garland Clan tell me that I am turning into Victor Meldrew. Played by Richard Wilson, another Scot, in the BBC sitcom “One foot in the grave”. I don't believe it myself, though, I have to admit, I do see some uncanny similarities, particularly within certain situation, which I experience.

I am pretty sure that Victor would be sickened at the lack of effort and imagination that we witness, when we answer these knocks at the door, at this time of year. “Trick or Treat!” - sadly even these three words are largely missing from this custom. The whole process has become

What is 'Euro Cost Averaging?'

One of the biggest dilemmas investors face is market timing. Jumping in and out of markets on a regular basis not only requires constant monitoring of daily events but also requires the skill to act on such events. Even the best fund managers avoid trying to catch the top or bottom of a market.

The fact is, it's impossible to time markets perfectly, so it's best not to try.

Most of us want to invest and achieve the best returns for our future but we don't want to put our hard earned capital at risk, just at the wrong time. Ideally we would like to improve our chances of entering the market at the right time. One way of doing this is to spread or drip-feed your lump sum into the market as opposed to

Why invest in infrastructure?

Infrastructure offers investors a potentially long-term, low-risk, and inflation-linked profile and an alternative asset class that could provide new sources of return and diversification of risk.

Infrastructure assets provide essential services that are necessary for populations and economies to function, prosper, and grow. They include a variety of assets divided into five general sectors:

- Transport (e.g., toll roads, airports, seaports, and rail);

- Energy (e.g., gas and electricity transmission, distribution, and generation);

- Water (e.g., pipelines and treatment plants);

- Communications (e.g., broadcast, satellite, and cable);

- Social (e.g., hospitals, schools, and prisons).

Infrastructure assets operate in an environment of limited competition as a result of natural monopolies, government regulations, or concessions. Most companies have long-term regulatory contracts to operate the assets, which can provide a predictable return over time. As a result, infrastructure assets have the potential to generate

Ireland's house prices are the second fastest-growing in the EU, according to Seán Kelly MEP. New data released by Eurostat on Wednesday showed that the highest annual increases in house prices in the second quarter of 2017 compared with the second quarter of 2016 were recorded in Czech Republic (+13.3%),

Ireland (+10.6%) and Lithuania (+10.2%), much higher than the EU average increase of 4.4%. Ireland’s prices also grew by one percent between Q1 and Q2 of 2017.

Speaking from the European Parliament, Brussels, Seán Kelly, highlighted the need for more regional investment to ease the pressure on Dublin, and welcomed the allocation of €1.9 billion for housing in Budget 2018: "These figures are not surprising, but they do offer another reminder that work needs to be done to tackle this ongoing issue of housing in Ireland - an issue stemming from the

"Walk on by!"

Just over a week ago Ex-Ophelia left these shores to be

followed very quickly by the oh so terrifying, storm Brian. Brian was never a name that, in all honesty, struck fear into any man (sorry Brians of this world)! To me, this name will be forever associated with the BBC children’s, stop animation TV series, "The Magic Roundabout".

Those of a certain vintage, will recall that the snail in the Trilby hat, was called Brian. He never did anything exciting, or frightening for that matter. Episode after episode, he would do nothing more than wander ever so slowly and aimlessly, around the set and that roundabout. He attempted to dish out the odd piece of advice, but never an angry or cross word was uttered, by "Brian the snail".

If these weather themed names were to

How important is financial literacy?

The importance of financial literacy has grown in Europe as financial markets have developed and because of demographic, economic and policy changes.

The needs of individuals and the financial products on offer have become more complex. Without financial literacy, full and informed participation of individuals in economic life is more challenging but becoming increasingly more important. This is a serious issue for EU Member States, many of whom now require increased personal responsibility for financial security, as state sponsored social security systems are retrenched and new market opportunities arise steadily in the financial sector.

Financial literacy is crucial for individuals and households, as our lifestyles change as a result of more frequent changes in employment and the increased incidence of divorce. Such changes create a need to adjust private finances regularly to suit new work

The price of the average three-bed semi in Co Waterford has risen 1.5% to €167,500 in the last three months, according to a national survey carried out by Real Estate Alliance.

The REA Average House Price Survey concentrates on the actual sale price of Ireland's typical stock home, the three-bed semi, giving an up-to-date picture of the property market in towns and cities countrywide to the close of last week.

In Waterford city, the average three-bed semi will cost €190,000 – a 10.1% annual increase. In Dungarvan, prices have risen 8.1% in the last year to €167,500 with homes in the town now taking eight weeks to sell.

"We continue to observe a decrease in the demand for second hand three-bed homes with the incentives directed at first-time buyers under the Help to Buy Scheme proving quite attractive,” said Eamonn Spratt in REA

A colourful City?

At the time of writing, Minister Pascal Luke Donohoe, would have been polishing the finer points of his 2018 Fine Gael Budget.

After being “Anointed” in June this year, to Leo’s Cabinet, as Minister of Finance, his wee primary school abacus has been dusted down and no doubt, never worked so hard. As TD after TD has demanded that their very own field of green deserves much, much more than their nearest neighbour.

There is NO sense of teamwork. Friendships are completely forgotten. Camaraderie goes out the window when budget time comes around. It is dog eat dog in the halls of power, in Leinster House.

I grant you, it is slightly more complicated this year, with the thin bonds holding this Government together. The sticking plaster is under tremendous strain, or so the spin would like
