Ahern allergy

• I found the Irish Independent September 14 edition to be particularly thoughtless and insensitive: Cecelia Ahern's new photo shoot on not just the front page but also Pages 2 and 3 to promote her new book.

The country is currently in a catastrophic financial mess which is largely due to her father, ex-Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. I don't mind the Irish Independent promoting or interviewing Cecelia Ahern, but I find it particularly inconsiderate to have her grace the front pages. It beggars belief, particularly in these dark economic times.



The piece about her illustrates the complete and utter disconnect and ignorance of these people with the deep anger felt by the Irish public.
