I was a young man in 1966 when we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising - and I can't, for the life of me, figure out where the intervening 50 years have gone.

Socially, we are more compassionate and open, and no longer hide our frailties and imperfections under the proverbial bushel.
