Give The Gathering a lasting legacy
• With the last slice of turkey carved from the bone, may I offer you something else to chew on?
I wish to address the issue of The Gathering. I note that normally sensible people are getting needlessly hot under the collar about a plan to engage more Irish people with Ireland.
I have heard trenchant criticism of the initiative, on the grounds that it is a vacuous exercise engineered to generate more wealth for the wealthy, which will be about as memorable as last week's fortune cookies.
