    I stopped in Ireland on my way to Kuwait, lovely country with nice looking women and good beer, I would volunteer to deploy there.

    $400,000 in daily revenues is nothing to sneeze at.
    Hundreds employed in primary activity, hundreds more secondarily.
    At a minimum 12.5% royalty, Ireland will reap $50,000 daily from one well.
    Bravo for Ireland. :thup:

    Oil is where you find it.
    It's the last place you look, but you try your best to make it the first. Place.

    Profit is a dandy motivator. :thup:
    And the beneifits of success are many fold.

    I will drink to that.

    Providence Resources.

    Note from the story that "shares soared".

    Shares- as in, it's a publicly traded company.

    You folks probably own a stake in this through your IRA/KEOGH/ etc. and you don't even know it.

    Here's hoping the Irish catch a break to help them out of the financial hole they're in.
