The new government, whatever the make-up will be, should bring in enforced hibernation for February.

The last government must have been out of their minds to go calling an election in February. The winter in Ireland only rightly gets going in early spring. Bad weather puts us all in bad form.

The last few weeks have been stormy, cold, icy and rainy. Hailstones the size of sliothars fell on me yesterday in the Cork and Kerry mountains. Even the highwayman Captain Farrell wouldn't go out in such weather.
