There was a television series in the 1970s about two brothers who took different paths in life. It was called Rich Man, Poor Man. Life did not work out well for one of the brothers.

I was reminded of the show as I read through two county secretary reports last week – John Costello’s in Dublin and Declan Bohan’s in Leitrim. One is dealing with problems in a county with a population of well over a million and the other with just 32,000. The main issue in Dublin is land, or more specifically, the lack of it, and in Letrim it’s a lack of people, especially the young.
