Come what May in the UK as centenary anniversary of first Dail sitting to be recognised

As I am compiling this column, it is just before the Westminster vote on Brexit. All observers feel the vote will be defeated, and some say very heavily.

By 1828 it was noted that there were 40 to 50 neat lodges along its sea shore, where there were only two or three a few years before.
