Dé Luain. Baile beag ar bith in Éirinn, Mí Eanáir agus tá saoire na Nollag ina chuimhne iargúlta nuair a éiríonn Seán nó Máire nó Andrzej nó Juan le lá oibre eile a chur isteach. Tá sé nó sí ag obair do chomhlacht Meiriceánach a dhíolann árachas gluaisteán i Meiriceá. Mar gheall ar chábla snáthoptaice a cheanglaíonn an phríomhoifig thall in Philadelphia agus an fho-oifig seo in Iarthar na hÉireann tá Seán, Máire, Andrzej agus Juan ina ann an t-árachas a dhíol leis na Yanks chomh ghasta agus chomh héifeachtach le Shawn, Moya, Drew agus Juan thall i bhPhilly. Go deimhin is mar gheall air sin, (agus tuarastail níos ísle, agus deontais stáit níos airde, agus ráta cánach níos ísle agus caighdeán saoil níos airde) gur oscail an comhlacht an mhonarca seo beagnach fiche bliain ó shin.

THIS MONTH sees the commencement of celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the revolutionary Dáil and the 125th anniversary of the founding of the GAA. Not unconnected events, obviously, as indeed is evident by looking at some of the names of those elected in the 1918 general election although they were not all there in January 1919, being on the run or 'faoi glás ag Gallaibh'.
