The Sunday Times has hinted that mega bucks to the tune of €57 billion could find its way North to co-fund healthcare, hospitals and energy - very tempting in a place where many people still live in Third World conditions.

Trí mhíle bliain ó shin mhair na Ceiltigh i gcroílár na hEorpa timpeall na hAlpa ón mBóihéim go Oirthear na Fraince, ó Abhainn an Phó go bruach Mhaigh Thuaidh na hEorpa. Ina ndiaidh sin scaip siad amach gach treo go gach carn na mór-roinne - ó Árainn go dtí an Áise Bheag (an Tuirc inniu). Free article
