    Dick Black Market Ireland

    TV3 has a new series coming soon.
    Black market Ireland will investigate the massive
    business of smuggled cigarettes, dvds and nearly everthing else.

    i only buy some designer goods but would never buy or value anything
    that was not genuine. a fake Ralph Lauren t-shirt? i'd prefer a genuine Penney's one.

    they'll probably avoid the biggy on this subject.

    I agree with you on the fakes, but the fags fuck no!! do you realise how much i save every week buying fags from other countries? €95!!! that's almost €5,000 a year, if the government want to stop illegal imports they should reduce excise, that way we would have on reason to buy them and they'd probably make more money

    The worst is Designer hanbags' they make the carrier look incredibly cheap and tacky and the goods ones aren't cheap, either; I woubld rather buy an interesting looking, quality REAL leather bag than a FAKE one

    Is there not a greater moral issue here?
    Fakes are just inferior rip offs, it's no different than theft.
    Theft from legitimate business, legitimate jobs, and not to mention that dirty word tax.
    But tax has to come from somewhere.
    Fakes are just wrong.

    i don't mind paying tax but its getting excessive now so the government is going to create a very big black market in everything unless they cop on .

    Understand the sentiment HL, mind you the ciggies are horrible. One of the frightening things about it,is it's not just fake bags and trainers, there also counterfieting medical drugs and even aircraft parts.

    I know the feeling, admittedly on smaller scale. (I don't earn quite that much myself )

    There's a problem with the black market in every country, the only difference is the extent. Ireland is a particulary easy country for smugglers due to the lack of customs boats around your shores. Another factor is that your government fixes the prices of certain goods such as ciggies/alcohol which are easy for the smugglers to sell on. In the UK our large supermarkets especially Asda/Morrisions continously have prices wars hence the price of these goods can be bought on a regular basis at discounted prices, ciggies in 100s/200s & lucrative offers on alcohol. Your government doesnt allow this to the extent it is in the UK, if they allowed prices to vary the issue of smuggling would decrease. At the end of the day there will always be a black market.
