A recent study says that there are more than 800 quasi autonomous non governmental agencies, or Quangos to you and me in existence spending in excess of €13 billion a year. That nobody can be sure of the exact number is an indictment of their management.
Our election is now over for a while at least and we should now shelve the electoral and political strategy and get on with trying to save our economy. Except we cannot do this because another election is looming and it is having an even greater influence on our economic policies than anything ever dreamt up by strategists on these shores.
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days. Nobody could find him and all of the angels and saints were getting very worried. It was most unlike God to go missing. He was usually such a reliable fellow. So all of the angels and saints organised a search party and set out to find him.
For some time now we have been fed a peculiar line of spin from our Government, and in particular from Brian Lenihan. Last December he told us that the economy turned a corner. At the time I debated this issue live on RTE Radio 1 with Dr Sean Barrett of TCD. I believed then, as I know now, that no corner had been turned. It was patently obvious to everybody in the real world who was struggling to make ends meet that this was untrue. Messrs Lenihan and Cowen obviously inhabit a different world to you and me. A world of generous salaries, limitless expenses, and munificent perks conveyed for little effort with no expectation of results.
Irish sport was dealt a severe blow this week when Micheál O Muircheartaigh retired from his vocation of enriching the Sunday afternoons of the nation. For over half a century his insightful, energetic and witty commentary on radio set the bar for GAA commentary at an impossibly high level.

It was a pleasure and an honour to listen to a man such as this, poetic, cultured with an innate sense of history and humanity. He became the sound of Sunday.

In some ways EU regulation is a barrier to development of the industry, although overall, it is true that without the EU it would be in even further economic trouble.
