The best of times, the worst of times as nation goes to the polls
We should all be happy after this weekend. The nation has done us proud and the joy on the faces of the people standing outside Dublin Castle truly was a joy to behold. The sun shone, the rainbow flags were waived and we were happy again.
Well, not so fast.
While the majority of the country was living in the 21st Century, the electorate of Carlow/ Kilkenny were back in the 1920s, back in a time where our nation was just learning to walk, a time when we were taking our first steps. As a nation, we are acting like a dementia patient.
