Biofuels: not all hands to the pump

With work beginning on a new biodiesel plant in Co Wexford, Ireland, biofuel critics have continued to argue that mass biofuel production will lead to farmers converting most of their tillable land to plants for biofuel production, pushing up food prices. However, such large-scale conversion is unlikely for several reasons, not least that biofuel consumption remains very limited in Ireland.

Bord Gais: there's no place like home

While Bord Gais takes the first step towards aggressively tackling the UK market, gains to be made back home cannot be ignored.

The Bank of Ireland has announced that it will be closing down its Bristol & West subsidiary as it seeks to reduce its exposure to the UK mortgage market and redirect its focus on the domestic Irish market.

British Airways: going down with a red face

BA has lost its top-flight status by dropping out of the FTSE 100. While the news is bad enough for the group, low cost airline Ryanair's decision to issue a statement saying it was applying to take their place was worse still.

BT/mmO2: reinvigorated after the breakup

BT and mmO2 will hope the split draws a veil over the company's dire performance over the last few years. But while the prospects for the newly demerged divisions do seem a little stronger, the management still has a great deal to prove.

C&C: pioneering the cider revival?

Cider appears to be undergoing something of a renaissance, as illustrated by C&C's strong financial results, which were buoyed by sales of its Magners and Bulmers brands. However, while the premiumization of C&C's cider offerings has contributed to the company's success in Ireland, it may still be some time before the UK market accepts the category as a valid alternative to wine and spirits.
