Madam - I wish to refer to Carol Hunt (Sunday Independent, June 22, 2014) and her concern for the approx. 10,000 families who are struggling with anxiety and hopelessness and the fear of banks taking over their homes - also her reference to the two Irelands, one for the wealthy and one for the poor.
Quite recently the Minister for Arts, Culture and The Gaelteacht Jimmy Deenihan told the Dail he is very pleased with the €22m allocation of funding in preparation for the Centenary of Celebrations for the 1916 rising.
We all cherish the memory of these great men, we will honour and remember them in our own special way. However, the activity of our government is an insult to them - Pearse, Connolly, Clarke and all the great men who gave their lives for freedom.
