Ireland has a few problems currently, after killing snakes which started the abuse of choirboys (my blog), the irish then killed the celtic tiger. The book ship of fools, says it was sank, i think drowned is better way to describe the homicide from a monkey’s point of view and is written by Fintan o Toole has an isbn of 9780571252688.
Think it was an Orwell prize long listee too (my blog) but my library took ages to get it.
The book in msm jurno mode details the abuse of Ireland by the Irish gentry, who with the politicians got rich, took a lot of money in eu grants and did not remember to tax it in any form. No wonder Ireland was a success for short period in time.
It notes that for all the ‘wonder’ that Ireland imports most of its talent, or provided an ‘not interested in regulating’ it attitude. Thus the chickens came home to roost.
The Irish are now emigrating again, killing wildlife even if corrupt seems that paradise is not for the Irish or choirboys.
