This is an absolute disgrace!
John anythig for a vote .They even steeped so low to use cancer patients in THE NORTH WEST With a promise (a promise made which you know you cannot keep or have no intention of keeping is a LIE)to return cancer services to Sligo hospital within 100 days of taking office.By the way where have all the prosters gone.
The cost of keeping 14 people on the dole is probably more than the difference in the the rent.
How are we ever going to get out of this hole if the government wont help business owners. Jobs should be the most important issue for the government at the moment
So sorry for this gentleman. I am involved with the Concerned Irish Citizens and so many similar stories are being told to us – what has happened to the Quinn Group is also criminal – definately Sean Quinn made a mistake with Quinn Insurance BUT there were enough assets to cover that debt. ANGLO had no right to seize Quinn Group. Until the legitamcy of the €2.3billion debt is heard in court NOBODY knows how much actual debt is. Cart before the horse – nothing should have happened BEFORE the big court case. People of Ireland are entitled to know the truth.
Everyone needs to remember this come the next election, dump the lying shower out as quick as God left Scotland!
It is a complete disgrace, that a hard working man with a family and employs 14 people must throw the towel in and all he was looking for was a level playing field to do his business.
What is the use in having a minister when he is so weak he can be dismissed like this ,now if only we had Jimmy Reilly down here and John was a Fine gaeler and this was a private nursing home that Jimmy had a share,if only;;
I actually believe its time for the people to take the power from the governments, there are more non supporters of this government than there is supporters, it time for war against the shower of cowboys, and let them know you can’t kid a kidder and that we have finally snapped from all the shit and lies we have put up with since they took office!!!
A seriously pissed off Irishman!!
This is just another example of the dirty tricks that goes on behind closed doors. I am so sorry for this man and his family that they have put so much into their business only to lose it over the greed of another. Really feels like the time people should stand up to this behing closed doors policy.
Maureen, please stay on topic. This man and Sean Quinn are not the same. While I feel very sorry for John and his unfair treatment, I have no sympathy for the gambler Quinn
This an absolute disgrace. The Joe Duffy Show would be a good vehicle to highlight this abomination nationally.
Sad Very sad!!!! Problem is Poor John Shine is not one of the huge companies that control everything in the same way that huge supermarket’s kill off small next door supermarkets etc. If it was all out in the open who is involved with the Government?????
Once again we see the result of government lies and corruption from the top down,It luducrus that a man trying to run a buisness and employ people is cut down in his tracks
by sheer stupidy,do they want to put all buisnesses out of work so people will leave or what,it looks that way no matter where you turn nothing is being done by our government for the people of Donegal only cut everywhere they sure wont cut anything to do with themselves,the people need to stand together before we have nothing left up here,as seems to be the agenda?.
Same old story, different party. This man, was speaking to the wrong person for a start. The country is not run by politicians, but by the new aristocracy. ie the upper echelons of the public service. Unaccountable untouchable senior civil servants, whom made this decision, because they thought it would set a dangerous precedent. They will get paid at the end of the month no matter what happens, and will kill off the private sector, with bureaucracy, regulations, and then bend over backwards for the multinational whom will cut their stick, as soon a they have to start paying back into the system.. John do yourself a favour, and sign on, and become part of the problem, rather than trying to solve it, because any indigenous business man in this poor excuse of a country will not be allowed to rise above his station. Dinny McGinley and his faux pas concern, can go and jump, he’s just another useless ex teacher, that is part of the machine, and along with Coveney, cannot move left nor right without prior approval of the senior mandarins pulling their strings.
Sorry to hear of John Shine’s decision and loss. Seems mad to think the commercial potential of this site is not being exploited by Minister or maybe it is? Has he got better plan than Shines one. If you look at the new marina being held up by his dept and his decision to increase tenfold marine pollution via salmon farming (not to mention the sewer pipes flowing into the new pier to welcome the new liners that are berthing) it is apparent that Killybegs and Donegal are being ignored as payment for No votes and anti govt protests. Time to look at big tourism picture for not just Killybegs or Donegsl but all Ireland that will get new income and jobs back into rural west coast replacing old ones like fishing, wool and farm income. Simple. More Business more jobs.
Trying to drum up support for the Quinns, don’t think so. Totally different. He got greedy, took a gamble and lost and now he’s a victim. This victim and his family live lifestyle’s we could never afford. To anyone who supports the Quinn’s, what do they stand for ? Who do they support. The unemployed, the overtaxed, the people in negative equity. The only people they are shouting for are themselves, that should tell you all you need to know
The government are directly responsible for closing this business down and destroying jobs and peoples lives. They hide behind the excuse that they cannot bring in legislation to ban UORRS. In this case they ARE the landlord so there is nothing stopping them from giving a rent reduction to market rent. They are continuing to listen to the property vested interests who destroyed the country. Join us on
We will not be silent
once again this so called goverment of yes boys have managed to enlarge the dole queu and by the way looking at one of the other replys to vote them out next time round we may not even have a vote remember this goverment and its predescers already sold out so they have no more to sell
No one to blame but ourselfs, we keep taken this shit and go on taking it , till we take to the streets things will not change, when there is a protest march no one turns up. National government needed.
this is a joke. they are bleeding this country dry of money and people. it is time people stood up to finn geal and leave them beside fina fail.it is time for a reveloution

So sorry to hear about this business. That’s seems to be the way of the country nowadays. You are better off not working as they just try and screw every last penny out of those whow are genuienly trying to earn a living themselves. It’s a disgrace
My heart goes out to this man and his family
This is an absoloute joke ,,
i agree with mr shine posting back the keys,
this country is a fecking joke..any man or woman that makes an effort in this country to provide employment ,all they get is door after door , closing . . and absolitly no help from than shower of , me feiners, in dublin . and to make things worse if we dumped out fg and lab in the morning,,,who the jesus do we put in !!!
DISGRACE. DISGRACE. Where are all you mouthpiece politicians now. Is there no photo opportunity in this for you all. You shower of lying cheating scumbags. Get them scum all out and get independents in because it has been proven its all a big pals act in goverment. People of Donegal. Back this man and pay no more charges until Donegal is noticed. And I am not affiliated to any party or organisation. I’m an emigrated local that takes full heed of what is happening because I have family and lot of interests at home. And will return there. DINNY NO SAY. PEARSE THE PUPPET. NO BACKBONE, ETC ETC.
That is horrible!!! I left there 23 years ago & reading stuff like this would never inspire me to move back!!! I hope there’s a resulatoin for this man & his family!!!
this goverment and the goverment before them can stoop no lower than they have already its time people knew we are not governed by this vcountry anymore as our present goverment and its predesors have aready sold out and jumped ship so they can line there own pockets people of ireland if this happened anywhere else they would burn them out of the dail
The really unfortunate thing is that coveney wont even see his letter. Some mule in his office will open it and pass it on up the line to the offical that bins correspondence that criticises the minister and even if he were to become aware of the letter and its content, does anyone honestly think he cares one shite about some poor donegal businessman? Does he f***, if theres nothing in it for him and his corrupt shower of crooked henchmen then he’ll do absolutely nothing about it. If i’m proved wrong i’ll apologise. Some how i cant see myself having toapologise at any stage. This government are a bigger shower of criminals than the last shower. This country is completely f**ked.
reply to not happy any time you are thinking of major street disturbances or coup let me know we are all sick of politicians no more peaceful protests it gets you nowhere fast.look at greece,spain.portugal and the north for 40 years those who rioted,etc are running the country.
Why are we, the Irish people letting this happen, the government is crippling businesses that have the drive and entrepreneurial skills to create jobs. This is not the land of opportunity, to see this happen saddens me. But yet it’s our fault “the people got greedy” Quote by Enda Kenny
