Irish leaving to build Australia

Sir -- It was heartbreaking looking at RTE, at all our young people having to emigrate, while the old gobshites who caused the whole mess are left to smile and enjoy the millions.

We are going to be left with a country of old people to wither away in sadness.

The Irish years ago built America, now the Irish are building Australia.
