Rural areas are being left behind by the recovery
We talk about a divided Ireland but I never envisaged this division would have such an impact on my life.
Am I talking about Northern Ireland? No. I am talking about the huge difference between the lives of people in the North West and those in 'The Pale'. I am from Sligo - there is no recovery in Sligo, no young people and no hope.
Having tried and tried, I finally gave up on beautiful Sligo and moved to Dublin.
