Kevin Myers trying to cure our blind eye
Well done to Kevin Myers (Irish Independent, April 5) on identifying the contradiction and 'me-feinism' that makes us Irish. There are positive attributes too but I think Mr Myers has summed up our weaknesses nicely.
There is plenty of room for improvement and educating the electorate would be a good start. We are an intelligent people and need to stop turning the blind eye when it suits us.
We must start asking searching questions of those who perform in a public capacity on our behalf.
