Thank you, Ryan and Gerry for your comments. I wrote the comment above in approximately 15 minutes, straight from the heart. I would be happy to create a blog post - there is so much to say, good and bad about past events, and indeed, ongoing issues, but I don't wish to impose information on my country, on TWG where I am eagerly absorbing all matters Irish - and there are many!
