Don't cry for Riverdance, Enda

There's a lot to cry about at the moment. You could cry about what they've done to our country. You could cry about the fact that the new Government is turning out just like the old one and we have run out of alternatives.

You could cry about the fact that all of us and practically every economist in the world knows that Ireland's debt burden is sinking the country and preventing growth.

There is indeed plenty to cry about without having to go to Riverdance. But it is Riverdance that moves our apparently unflappable Taoiseach to tears. He admitted last week that every time he sees it, he cries due to "the power of the phenomenon of Riverdance -- ancient dance translated into a phenomenal and powerful message".
