Being Donnacha


I REMEMBER very well the time Anne Rynne told me Donnacha had multiple sclerosis. We were on the phone. It must have been about 15 years ago. Or thereabouts. Donnacha was in his mid-20s. Although she was scared, Anne was very brave about this traumatic development in the life of her son. Donnacha was even braver. They are like that, this mother and... Free article

27 October 2010

The exports factor

27 October 2010

TWO cheers for RTÉ, Today FM and Newstalk this morning for not jumping too much on the 'exports growth' bandwagon.

RTÉ, like many other news media outlets, have reported on Irish Exporters’ Association (IEA) figures which show a 9.3% increase in exports in the months July to September 2010. Exports for the first nine months of 2010 are 4.4% ahead of the same period in 2009. So... Free article
