Our hearts go out to poor old Dermot

One has to feel great sadness and sympathy for Justice Minister Dermot Ahern at his "huge regret" at being unable to engage in his hobby of windsurfing for the past two years because of his rheumatoid arthritis (Irish Independent, December 1).

The people of Ireland can only hope that Mr Ahern's massive retirement package will go some way towards easing the pain of this devastating loss of pleasure.

I'm sure, as the peasant classes struggle to feed themselves over the next few decades, they will retain in their simple hearts a special place of warmth and worry for Mr Ahern and his family.
