Gene Kerrigan: This is Enda's 'freedom' for our children
Kenny wants us to 'wave goodbye' to the IMF, but parents are waving goodbye to their kids, writes Gene Kerrigan
IN 2002, there were 60,521 births here. If everyone has been doing their duty in these long winter evenings, there should be about 74,000 children born in this country in 2012.
That figure might be down a bit, given the increasing emigration of young people (who are more active in these matters, if memory serves).
Who knows -- enthused by the prospects facing Robbie Keane and the lads in UEFA 2012, we might see a jump in the birth rate, with a significant proportion of the offspring named 'Giovanni'.
