Let's have an 'Anglo Day' national holiday - so we never forget
Ireland has had a turbulent history but there are some events that run deep in our psyche, such as Cromwell's campaign, the Great Famine and TB.
I believe we now have a new candidate: Anglo Irish Bank. Even in death, Anglo (new name IBRC) continues to haunt us, with daily rows over its carcass. The media, the courts and the Dáil are still enthralled by a tale that seems to have no ending.
In view of this, I think it fitting that Ireland should have its own annual 'Anglo Day'. It should be declared a bank holiday. It deserves its own unique day, up there with Saint Patrick as regards importance.
