Play to strengths

Madam -- Eamon Delaney (Sunday Independent, July 1, 2012) said: 'Hats off to Fianna Fail for being the artist's friend'. I say hats off to Eamon for highlighting something big that could slip through our fingers if we're not careful.

Yes, Eamon was correct to say that Fine Gael and Labour (apart from our President Michael D Higgins) haven't shown much interest so far in rekindling the efforts that Fianna Fail put into the arts.

I think the arts and culture should be made into one of our biggest industries. Because we're not just good at it, we are the best in the world.
