It is sad to read that the economy has taken a turn in Ireland especially as things were going so well with jobs and earnings being so much better. I know it is hard for all and especially young people who have been independant and able to afford their own apartments and living. I would life to mention that here in the US a lot of people join together to be able to afford homes and groceries. They pool their incomes and buy or rent homes and share the bills and groceries. Often they share the same political beliefs and work for causes together. This is a great way to be able to afford a good home and not pay a lot of money. Also, communities get together to raise gardens for vegetables and sell to the neighborhood. Many people have a talent that others don't so if you pool your resources in your community then all will benefit. I hope things don't get really bad and that the wonderful people of Ireland will not have a bad economic turn. God bless and Erin go Bragh!!
