You can join from anywhere!

The advice on specific products may not be as great since products vary greatly between america and ireland, but otherwise it's no problem at all!

In fact It seems there has been a HUGE influx of Canadians here as well ( we share a few manufacturers with them at least )

Welcome! We let any brushslingers in, we are considering a temporary ban on Canadians though!

Just kidding, we have members from all over the world, as long as they are professional painters. Many of us are interested in the differences in product and procedures in different countries. It helps to put your location in your profile. Look forward to reading your posts!

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

We could use a good painter around here.... Wait do you cut the walls to the trim or the trim to the walls?

Anyways, welcome to PT.

Welcome, if you have a 40' ladder you will be accepted sooner as a true painter no matter what country you are from.

WHEW !

I thought they were about to ban all Massholes

Seriously Dercy, broaden the gene pool. Like the Royal family, we welcome new blood. Although, being from the Boston area, an Irish painter ain't such new blood

But I've had a few pints with a number of them
