Jillian, delighted to have you as a member. Failte. Looking forward to learning your colorful Irish story, as, with you, we explore the epic heritage of the Irish ... worldwide. BTW, do you work as a publicist? If so, with what focus?

Hello Gerry

I'm still here on the ole sod but came across the site through twitter. I am a writer, journalist and accidental activist. I was the first female bankrupt in Ireland this year under the new Insolvency laws. I also changed the law with regard to bankrupts running for public office - and then went on to run for Europe in Ireland South. I am passionate about telling the truth about what is happening to Ireland as a result of the financial crises. 

cheers

Jillian
