Brendan O'Connor: Failte flourishes, let's build pylons
Oh but it's a great time to be Irish. And the world is finally waking up again to what a great little country we are.
They're only mad for our bonds -- and they can't get enough of our food. Last year we took over €10bn in for the first time, selling everyone our food. And the best part is it's not just commodities like milk powder for China's little emperors. We are selling premium food, at premium prices. The best beef in the world from the best little country in the world.
Look at our lovely lush fields and feel the lack of hormones in our tender grassy meat. And pay through the nose.
