Lost faith

I was in the Saguenay area of the Province of Quebec (French speaking) , Canada in August. I was in a substantial twin spire church one Sunday where there was no priest assigned and Mass was conducted by 8 women and 1 man. My wife checked this out and found that in small towns where there is a short

Death of 25-year-old Peggy McCarthy of Listowel, 1946

I was born and raised in Listowel, I left in the mid fifties, the day after my last day in secondary school. My take on public opinion in Ireland is that it was largely shaped by the 1840's Famine and widespread poverty up to about 1960. Merely survive was what most people endeavoured to do. The Go

Death of 25-year-old Peggy McCarthy of Listowel, 1946

Ireland suffered a major famine beginning in 1845 and many people lived on the edge of starvation up until the 1960s'. I come from Listowel where my mother operated and owned a store for over 50 years. The people there are little different from those in the rest of the country. I would go so far as

Would you be ok with white Irish becoming a minority?

Insularity was a word associated with the British but it applies also to the Irish. There are people in Ireland who are seeing foreigners for the first time in their lives. I have been up the Niger and Congo rivers where little children ran screaming to their mothers when I came into sight. Somethin

The DUB Passport/Immigration Queue Thread

In a preceding comment I saw around 2,000 passengers were denied entry so far this year, some of those due to information on the Interpol database. In Canada and other countries the Customs and Immigration staff do not have to weed out bad apples from the passenger flow all they have to do is scan t

Would you be ok with white Irish becoming a minority?

The Irish are mongrels composed of everything that washed up on shore in the past 6,000 years or so. The Celts are but a small part of the mix. Whatever shows up becomes an indistinguishable part of the Irish stew over 200 years or so. The Northern Irish settlers walk like ducks, talk like ducks and

From where I look at it (far away) the design and implementation of passenger handling at Dublin Airport did not involve in a way that could be described as meaningful all the Gov't parties involved. Customs and Immigration, Airport Security, Gardai, Medical, Information Services and others. I was i
