• I wish the UK newspapers would stop referring to us as if we had just got off a famine boat. Please do not tar all Irish people with the same brush. I didn't want a euro and I am certainly mortified that our politicians, no matter what party they come from, have played the fool and bowed to Europe. I am embarrassed to be Irish at the moment and I was not afraid to vote No.
