Unemployable at 55, he has 30 years to drive his wife nuts
HE was a proud man who worked all his life. A couple of years ago, he was on €600 a week, but then he was let go. Now he is down to a third of that. The redundancy was all right enough, but not enough to last forever. Most of the money was spent on doing up the house. Herself wanted a new kitchen. Then there was this "see-through room at the side of the house", as he calls it. Known to you and I as a conservatory.
