And a leafy pint to you!

I must be getting old. I’ve really enjoyed watching Ireland in The Six Nations rugby – its my favourite sporting event. And for 80 minutes, all Ireland has a single voice – and it feels like the future, an identity completeness I’ve longed for. There is so much to put behind us, and it’s already a long way forward from the Northern Ireland I grew up in. I believe the opportunity is there – to build something new. But how many generations it will take?

Happy Ireland day!
