History
The laundry was founded by John W. Brittain (1872–1937) from Manorhamilton, County Leitrim, who was one of the "pioneers of the laundry business in Ireland", having founded the Metropolitan and White Heather Laundries in 1899. He was also the owner of a famous horse called Swastika Rose which was well known "to frequenters of the Royal Dublin's Society's Shows".[1] The use of the Swastika name was as an ancient Indian symbol of good luck: its name originates from the Sanskrit svastika.[2]

The company used electric vans, painted in red with a white swastika on a black roundel, to collect and deliver laundry to customers.[1] The vans were quite ahead of their time.[1][3]

In 1939, the laundry changed its name to "The Swastika Laundry (1912)"[2] to make clear the distinction between its use of the name and symbol and the more recent adoption of the symbol by the Nazi Party in Germany.

It continued to exist as a separate company until the late 1960s, when it was bought out by the Spring Grove Laundry company, which continued to operate from the same site in Ballsbridge.[4] Nevertheless, the logo and name continued in use until the premises closed in 1987.[1]

Later history of site
Even following the closure of the laundry, its brick chimney, emblazoned with a large white swastika, remained visible for some years from many places in the surrounding area, including the Merrion Road, a main road south from Dublin.

Spring Grove sold the property for redevelopment in the early 21st century during the Dublin property boom of the 1990s and 2000s, as Ballsbridge was by then a popular and exclusive area of Dublin 4. An office development called "The Oval" was constructed on the site. The chimney, which is a protected structure, survives, but the painted swastika does not. The chimney is surrounded by the "oval" of the new development.[1]

Things we used to joke bout in school are  now  considered incitement to hatred or racist .....a crime

I don't believe anyone on here is racist but wer livin in a very different world now   and the perception out there  is that irish white taxi drivers are endemically racists ....
a generalisation that personally I  disagree with but thats your stereotypical profile ....we should not encourage such generalisations even in jest ...
we all know that Dr gooters swastika is tongue
In cheek ....an we all  know thers nobody  more anti racist than ratcatcher....but thers people out there that have  the power of print that can construe or misinterpret comments or language  or symbols to their advantage to make themselves  appear good and wholesome  to a Naive and  easily influenced public and even possibly the judicial industry....
In Germany as far as I can recall...displaying a swastika is a crime and can lead to 3 years imprisonment...
Ireland is not far behind ...
Everything you print here is permanent and can be used against
You ....
Keep it in mind ...as I've said before ...human apes are very dangerous .....especially journalistic predators

Occi told you  before a lot of Journalists harvest their ideas off of public forums .I dont know how many things I posted were in Newsprint a few days later with just a few full Stops and commas added .There is not a Journalist in the Country honest enough to write on the sudden demise of some of our top horse trainers since Jim Bolger made his drugs in sport accusations or Call out Leo for taking Official Government papers and giving that Pay Information to his friends .One of the definition of Treason is taking advantage of your position to prosper for yourself or others from your position .Im sure SIPTU or other Unions would love to get their hands on Government pay deals with other stake holders before they sit down to deal .

 Irish Journalism is at its lowest ebb for years all they are interested in is which Hutch or Kinahan gets the headlines .Selling newspapers with headlines like Conor Mc Gregor wears a new hat or Toilets blocked at Aviva leads to Shite event .

Lack of taxis ?Just read a post that somebody had their booking cancelled for the Burlo even though they booked it months ago and the recommendation was try the Hostel on Lord Edward Street .Cunts can get more coin from Concert Goers .I will forcast the Moment this Country goes bang .Friends in Low Places Garth Brooks is singing in a field in September he is very popular with members of the Traveling community .Who when their hotel bookings are cancelled will call victimhood and smash up plenty of Hotels .And they will be victims just like every other person who has their booking cancelled but unlike Donal and Eileen from Toomyvara who will Ring the Liveline and listen to Joe being indignant on their behalf .The Travellers will protest and others will follow .The more I look at it the more I think this Government wont last .If we get an Autumn of Protests Mick and the Traitor might run for the ballot box so they can get cover from a SF led government .GET A GUN and buy in some candles and canned goods .

Revolut, the financial super app with more than 18 million customers worldwide, is rolling out its pay later product, ‘Pay Later’ in Europe as it continues to expand its suite of products to help people get more from their money. Revolut Pay Later is the first pay later product in Ireland that uses an approved credit limit, designed to focus on affordability, putting the customer in control of when they want to use Pay Later rather than being restricted to certain merchant partnerships.
Beginning this week, some Revolut customers in Ireland will be eligible for early access to Pay Later, which will gradually roll out to all users in Ireland – where 1.9 million adults have a Revolut account. Pending the sign-ups for Pay Later, Revolut will look to offer the product in additional markets from the end of 2022 and beyond, with Poland and Romania to be the next markets gaining access to the product later this year.

Qualified customers can use Pay Later for purchases up to a maximum of €499, with any of their Revolut cards, including when paying with a Revolut Disposable Virtual Card which provides an extra layer of security for online transactions.

Customers can spread the cost of a purchase across three monthly instalments with the first instalment paid upfront by the customer at the time of purchase followed by two monthly instalments. The fee of 1.65 per cent per purchase is repaid as part of the final two instalments. Fully integrated within the app, once approved, customers can activate Pay Later on-the-go with one tap. Customers can view their Pay Later balance in the Cards section and in the Pay Later hub. If a customer would like to repay the instalments early, there are no additional fees to do so.

Whether it’s a new washing machine, hotel booking, or a birthday gift, customers can use Pay Later at any merchant that accepts Revolut online or in store. Unlike other pay later products, merchants do not sign up to Revolut Pay Later, and Revolut does not charge them for Pay Later transactions. It also offers a more robust assessment as it approves the credit limit before the transaction rather than offering an instalments payment method at the point of sale.

The fintech checks customer affordability by linking to customers’ existing bank accounts through open banking. Revolut will assess customer suitability and affordability for ‘Pay Later’ through an underwriting process.

Pay Later is another tool to help customers manage their spending all from one app. The Buy Now Pay Later market in Europe is set to grow to £680billion over the next five years. Revolut’s ‘Pay Later’ offering meets the growing consumer demand for this personal finance tool, while offering it in a responsible way, with a heavy emphasis on customer affordability and suitability.

Joe Heneghan, CEO Revolut Europe, commented “Pay Later is an exciting and fast-growing area of personal finance and consumer spending, and we are excited to add Revolut Pay Later to our financial super app.

“Revolut Pay Later gives our customers more control and flexibility over their personal finances, in a responsible way, by enabling them to spread the cost of purchases over three instalments. This encourages people to pay within two months, rather than calling on overdrafts and credit cards which don’t carry the same emphasis on quickly paying back the amount borrowed.”

Free Now cash jobs are now described as "Non App Payment" or some such. When we're obliged to accept cards nobody in their right mind will bother sending their card numbers over the internet. Driver takes card and loses up to 17% in commission or driver can't process card for whatever reason and loses the lower of 100% of the fare or €200.
