Calm down: the Brexit referendum result is not a 21st-century Sarajevo
So now that the near-hysterical reaction to Brexit from most of "serious" Ireland is easing up, let us see what is likely to happen next. On one prominent weekend radio show, the mainstream view, fuelled by Friday's apocalyptic utterances from the deeply Remain side of the Irish media/political/business establishment, tottered from sneering at the electorate in Britain to predicting Armageddon.
Most of us probably hoped for a Remain victory, but were sensible enough to entertain a Leave vote.
Those of us who have a responsibility to comment might have gone out to England to feel the pulse of our neighbour and - as a result of such fieldwork - might have predicted Brexit.
