I'M about to cash in on a bet I entered into two years ago when a few friends walked the Wicklow hills.
Like the entire country at the time, we were shocked and frightened at the depth of the black hole into which the banks had dragged our nation.
Despite intense bank and government spinning, the seriousness of the disaster, even at that time, was crystal clear. It has got a lot worse since.
