Resolution . . . Seanad abolition . . . Prize questions

My New Year's resolution is simple. I resolve to emigrate, make a new life and never return to Ireland to live or work again. After returning 12 years ago, all my hard work, efforts, hopes and expectations are reduced to nothing.

I have no income -- as a self-employed person I'm entitled to no assistance -- and I am in serious debt for the first time ever. There is nothing to keep me here any more.
