  1. Modern day Ireland was full of materialistic achievement, the size of my house over yours, the age of my car over yours, etc. During the boom I mentioned the sale of a rather large house to a friend. He very crudely said “two fellows with deep pockets and short d**** will fight it out with to buy”. In reality Ireland and it’s people became self obsessed and competitive. We have however now sobered up and grown up. We are now better people for the boom bust cycle, let’s hope that when Ireland booms again we remain as nice people.

  2. Maybe we’ll even start talking to each other again, Ruck. I walk down the road and there’s hardly a person under 50 who would speak. Something got lost on the way.
