Housing: no big move by Labour

14 July 2011

HOUSING POLICY is one of the issues that goes to the heart of our current economic crisis. More than health or education, it is an area of policy that successive governments left to the mercy of the market.
Some of the consequences are widely acknowledged, such as the massive property bubble and subsequent house price crash. Unfortunately, equally important consequences continue... Free article

Gan idir Pravda ná Tass i NOTW ...

14 July 2011

NUAIR a smaoiním faoi na meáin chlóite, cuimhnigí ar an seanabairt Rúiseach ó aimsir an Aontais Soibheidigh a dúirt nach raibh Pravda i dTass, ná Tass i bPravda (nó, nach raibh Firínne sa Nuacht, ná Nuacht san Fhirínne). Le seachtainí anuas tá an fhírinne ag briseadh tríd agus anois is léir go raibh na taicticí uafásacha, ísle, suaracha, eadrócaireacha i bhfeidhm ag an ‘nuachtán’... Free article

James Connolly in Belfast

14 July 2011

TWO DOCUMENTARIES on the life of James Connolly were produced last year. One of them, the most substantive, was a documentary by Brian O’Flaherty, ‘James Connolly - A Working Class Hero’, currently available on DVD. The second was part of a series on prominent people in Irish history and presented by Joe Duffy. While both films had merits they shared one glaring omission - they... Free article

Be good or be lucky

14 July 2011

HERE IS an old adage which states that if you can’t be good, be lucky. The Dublin footballers are certainly living proof of that these days.
Probably most referees would not have awarded Bernard Brogan a free in the dying seconds of the Kildare game. And the first goal against Wexford might have been scripted by Harold Lloyd.
