Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I worked in Ireland in the 1980's and can assure that bad and all as things are now, things were an awful lot worse then, and worse again as you go back into the 70's, 60's, and 50's. Anyone who thinks that Ireland has been run into the ground since the 1980's obviously didn't live here then.
