Get out your red, white, and blue banners, bunting and Captain America pinatas, dear readers, and join me in celebrating Independence Day. Yes, today is 4 July 4, and normally for this transplanted American, and perhaps many of you reading right now, it would be time to zip over to the US Ambassador’s digs in Dublin’s Phoenix Park to partake in the annual tradition of eating grilled meat (or vegetarian options), drinking Jack Daniels (or soft drink options), dancing to country and western music and fireworks.
