In the course of Irelands history this little Island has played host to a great number of people. There have been a multitude of cultures, of religions, of laws and legends which have shaped our past and given each generation a sense of what it is to be Irish. We have been portrayed as rouges, poets, priests and martyrs. We have played the villain and the hero, we are lovers of the craic, of the ceol, the bottle, the brawl and as many other stereotypes you can imagine, but there is one…
Sooooo I just read the wording of the proposed amendment to Article 42 of the constitution on childrens rights, some MAJOR discrepancies there. Nothing NEW per se has really been added, it seems if anything a lot has been taken away from the existing Article. Lets take a closer look.

Although it is impossible to predict exactly how the smoke will twirl off the end of a cigarette, you can predict with certainty that eventually the smoke will be evenly distributed throughout the room. In the same way, while it is impossible to predict the individual twists and turns of the collapse of the Federal Reserve Board and the Western financial system, the end game is not in doubt. In this case, a look at the macro numbers, such things as balance of payments, external debt, tax… Continue

You are the one, there is no other,
There is no other way,
Ultimately it all comes back to you,
You hold within you… Continue
In the ensuing years since the attacks upon new yorks world trade center on september 11th 2001 our societies have gone down very different paths to what the people of the world had hoped to see ushered in with the new millenium. Now there is a sense of forboding that encompasses the globe. A sense that all is not quite right, that some unseen malaise exist like a deeper undercurrent that flows just below… Continue

SCAM ALERT? Irish Banks
Now this ought to lead to some handcuffs:
IRISH BANKS are issuing bonds to themselves under the Government guarantee to borrow cheaply from the European Central Bank and to avoid drawing more heavily on emergency lending from the Irish Central Bank.
