Explaining the Irish banking crisis, in typically Irish terms. It's still pisses me off that we've never really learned the lessons of what went down, and we're bound to repeat it again. No real sense of people pulling together, everyone out for themselves. The upcoming marriage referendum has brought it out again: such an absence of empathy in such a supposedly 'Christian' nation; personal 'conscience' as an excuse for denying others trumps all. As a people, we're a sham, we really are.
