to satisfy your lust to troll this topic, sorry maybe later when I feel a
maddening desire to prove my point.
However since you have made such an issue out of it I will cc RTE on this
point and ask quite nicely if they could provide some information based on
my claim that at one point it had claimed Ireland was a net contributor to

At your earlist convienance if you might find a way of confirming or denying
this assertion it would be quite helpful.
