PADDY CASEY, Ireland's favourite troubadour, is currently on a whistle stop tour around Ireland's best small venues to give fans an up close and personal show, playing his best known songs from 3 great albums. He plays his first Waterford show in a couple of years at the Forum Lounge this Saturday, 21 May. Paddy achieved huge commercial success with his second album "Living" which went 11 times Platinum in Ireland, selling 175,000 copies to become one of the biggest selling albums of all time in this country. With it's holy trinity of singles "Want It, Can't Have It", "Saints & Sinners" and "The Lucky One", the album dominated Ireland's charts in 2004 and resulted in Paddy playing a record breaking 8 nights at Dublin's Olympia Theatre, as well as major outdoor festival shows around the country. Paddy first came to the attention of the music buying public in 1999 with his debut album "Amen". The press annointed him as the "new Bob Dylan", a case of over-hyping but the album did contain some great songs like "Sweet Surburban Sky" and "Whatever Gets You There". After the huge International success of "Living" in 2004, Paddy recorded his third album, "Addicted To Company (Part 1)" in the U.S. in 2007 with the cream of L.A.'s session musicians. Paddy realised a long held ambition to record in this way and to take him out of his comfort zone and was pleased by the quality of songs like "You'll Get By", "You And I" and "Addicted To Company" itself. Now Paddy feels the time is right to get back to his roots, tour the length and breadth of Ireland and let his fans hear the songs they know and love. So hope to see all you Saints & Sinners at the Forum Lounge this Saturday 21st May. Doors are at 8pm and tickets (?17) are available on the door.

Google AlertWhen a company which has it's European Headquarters here in Ireland is called 'evil' and 'immoral' by M.P.s in The House of Commons you tend to sit up and take notice. The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax. It does this by having all of its financial transactions finished here in Ireland. And the company here is …
