A better place

• Taoiseach Enda Kenny often says he wants to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising by making Ireland the best country in the world to do business.

The Proclamation of Independence sets out far more ambitious goals, like civil and equal rights, equal opportunities, sovereignty and ownership of the people of Ireland to Ireland.

Looking at these goals, our Taoiseach's vision seems rather small. By achieving the goals set out in the Proclamation, Ireland might not only become the best place to do business in but also the best place in the world to live.
