The rain is battering down outside. The wind is howling and gooshing down the chimney. Old creaky bones and planks of wood are snarling and snippin’. There is a nasty bitter edge to the cold that sets in with the dark. It gets dark before it gets bright. It is the Irish winter. Hibernating time.

Sinead O’ Connor Down Under

You stop worrying about the gargle and worrying about other things. Personally I love it. And I love to see the people of Ireland finally galvanising themselves and standing up to the corporate bankers who are calling the shots.
