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?

I was the first female bankrupt in Ireland this year under the new Insolvency laws.

I am passionate about telling the truth about what is happening to Ireland as a result of the financial crises.
Jillian, I admire the passion evinced here, to make positive change. Did you win in Ireland South?
