Proud to know Irish are cared for

I VOTED last Friday night. I am very proud of my vote.

I have lived abroad most of my career. I am a dual citizen, Irish and British, and a permanent resident of Hong Kong. I actually cried tonight because I know how it feels to be in another country seeing chaos and death on the streets (I was in Nigeria during the uprising in Kano when I was 17).

As I sit and watch the news, it really heartens my faith in Ireland that we sent our government jet to help our citizens home safely.
