For some reason this video doesn’t start working until 11 seconds in – so, be patient! It’s from the Irish news tonight.

st patrick’s day

Sorry, but it has to be done:

😕

Supporters of US Democratic presidential candidate and Illinois Senator Barack Obama drink as they watch election results from Ollie Hayes Pub on November 4, 2008 in Moneygall, Co Offaly, in Ireland. Historians have unearthed records showing Obama’s maternal ancestors lived, worked, married and had children in the Moneygall area more than 150 years ago. Fulmuth Kearney, who is Obama’s third great-grandfather, left Moneygall for New York in 1850 to eventually settle in Ohio

Sadly, not much to celebrate in Ireland these days – the unemployment rate has just hit ….. ready for this? ….. 14.7%.

About three years ago, Ireland’s economy, which was, in fact, built on sand, was the envy of Europe, but the unregulated financial sector brought the country to its knees – sound familiar?

Same story everywhere, the same corrupt, greedy ******s bringing the good people down – we’re all in this together 😉
