Make sure you have all communications copied and kept. Make sure you have followed through on all the standard avenues of complaint etc. Bring what you have to two or three law firms and ask them what they can do and what the projected outcome and cost is. Using that information, look up independent legal professionals and get their offer, then quote that to the others.

Lads anybody know about tenders? Specifically for third level education tenders? Just saw a local college is looking for a tender/proposals from “suitably qualified companies and/or professionals for the planning, organisation and execution of a Peer Mentoring Programme” Cost is “100% (based on requirements outlined/Dept of Finance straight line model)…Please submit a full pricing document…”
Could be a novel way to get viable employment: Can get my head around most of that, besides the straight line model (quick google search didn’t return much). Importantly would have little knowledge of tenders, and what would make up a successful tender application/pricing document. So any words of wisdom/experience would be a great help…


Have they not got a tender document for you to fill out? Or if it is a government funded college is it not submitted via eTender?

There are a number of free templates worth looking at on the Government eTender website

Jaysus @Vin I’d say that never happened before …


Anyone remember what an ice cream between two wafers was called in Dublin
