Ireland's royally magic beans

Image by gem_106

With a royal wedding in mere weeks and the world's media on the brink of hysteria, everything 'Kate & Wills' related seems to be turning to gold.
Whether it be royal merchandise or TV specials, the world is bracing itself for Britain's big day.
A story came across our desks here at Ireland Inc.ie and we couldn't help but giggle, relishing in the fun escapism of the article!

A British couple came across a jelly bean which had a startling resemblance to the future Queen of England Kate Middleton. Whilst digging into a tub of beans from The Jelly Bean Factory (an Irish brand and company) they found the image and are now hoping to sell it on E-Bay.
In the media frenzy running up to the Royal Wedding, which takes place in less than 2 weeks, newspapers will stop at nothing to find a story which will capture the publics imagination. Do you think that this story is real?Have you ever came across an iamge in a tub of The Jelly Bean Factory beans?

Enterprise Ireland are aiming to double the number of international students studying in the Irish higher education system by 2015.
"Education in Ireland", will promote the combined value of a third level education and the English language to foreign students, which is currently worth €900m to our struggling economy.

New Irish Hypermarket . . .

A thought came to mind - with all the Tesco price cuts and general domination of our grocery spend, is it time for a new Irish super chain (a super cheap Irish style Aldi)? Maybe Dunnes, Superquinn, Supervalu could join forces, thoughts?!

In light of recent events, here is a funny wee vid.

Trying to pull the wool over our eyes

Image by Craig murphy

I wasn't in the least bit shocked when news leaked that Tesco's so called 'price cuts' were nothing more than a cheap ploy to cash in on the Irish consumer.
Can we be so easily duped? Some might say yes.
However, what will this do to Tesco's already tarnished reputation and what affects could this have on the Irish brands on sale on Tesco shelves across the land?

Social media cashing in on Mother's day

Image by Zhuo

Mother's day is this weekend (Sunday to be precise)and while many will be out buying last minute bouquets and gift vouchers aplenty, the newest trend to hit the Irish market is : Social media. Yep, you heard right.
The hottest way to tell mum you love her this year is going viral.

Busy sons and daughters across Ireland are more likely to post a Facebook message rather than send a Mother’s Day card this weekend.

How many of you will send an e-card rather than an actual card to your dear mum?
