Hello peeps. Greetings from liitle old Ireland. I am afriad the storm clouds are really starting to break over our heads at the moment; there is a lot of very bad news coming out of our banking sector again this week.

It seems that we may be holed below the water line in terms of our banking system, and unfortunately our government have been pursuing policies that will probably drag them down with the banks, as its seems there have been some very, very serious irregularities going on.

We are only a small country, so things like this mean we could be in significant difficulty as a nation, and the ordinary people here may be in for some serious consequences.

If your so inclined, say a little prayer for us, we are in a fair bit of trouble, its going to be a difficult time for us over here in the next while.
