  1. Reading the sorry plight of this Nigerian Lady . her skill set which no doubt would be welcome in Ireland I found reflecting on our historical plight as Exiles…(myself included ) and how much we are more alike than we are different. There should be a mandate on holding people and not accepting nor denying them security. Also from my own experieince of coming from a small town with a resettlement center (where these invisible unfortunates come and go by local bus) as the bus driver whispers in low tones if anyone gets off here??? and when a person arises just the sense of embarrassment is obvious, Magdelane Laundrys dirty laundy has been exposed at the expense of the women and children who lived and died there. Every effort should be made not to continue with the historical sins of our hypocritical christian tradition.

  2. Loved the article on Buskers in Galway, my favorite city in Ireland. I’ve been there many times and personally never found a problem on the streets with buskers; just move on if I’m not taken with an act. Clearly Brian has some valid points though. I think it would be a tragedy if Galway lost the buskers who contribute immensely to conveying the energy an creativity which is a hallmark of that city.

  3. Hi Ciara’s, I am 57, been a police officer for 36 yrs. I too went on many summer vacations to Ireland as a boy, mom is from Knock, Mayo, dad from limerick. I have an affinity for croagh Patrick, climbed it many times. The ride to Connemara and clifden from there is magical. Thought i might retire there one day. Good luck.

  4. Mr. Tierney you might point out the corporate landlord as a major contributor to civil unrest. “Rent is for paying interest” is the definition of a parasite. Bless you for your work.

  5. Read with interest your article “US family proves you can make a successful move to Ireland.” There was, in my opinion, a gaping hole in your story and that was how the O’Toole’s managed to make a living in Ireland. Perhaps they were supported by a foundation or some religious ministry but the reader was left guessing. For those who might be thinking of living in Ireland and acquiring citizenship, this would be critical information. How exactly have they been employed while living in Ireland?
