Morgan Kelly, Professor of Economics at UCD -- public sector, paid at least €100,000 -- tells The Irish Times how truly awful it all is and issues this inspiring call to his crouched country: "I have to hold up my hands and confess I have no solutions, simple or otherwise."
But Kelly does not hold his hands up. He wrings them with relish. Like John Lonergan, he is what my mother would call a wirra-wirra, a professional keener. Go into the woods with him, get lost and he will tell you with gusto where you went wrong, and go off whistling.
