We should be asking him to help us
Ireland has more pressing problems than worrying about Donald Trump, writes Niamh Horan
There is a great irony in plans for a mass protest to welcome US President Donald Trump when he arrives in Ireland in November.
Over the past 10 years we have watched in horror as our own politicians made one reckless, unpatriotic, decision after the next.
They bailed out the banks, put Ireland up for sale to US vulture funds and imposed a harsh austerity programme to socialise the costs of private debt.
