Lazy Sunday Service

The economy has been firmly shoved off the lead item on the Irish news. It is dominated by two things. First, the big freeze and the snow and ice that has half paralysed the country. I saw a nice interview with a Polish woman on TV yesterday. The interviewer said that she must be used to such conditions. She half-agreed. She was used to the snow and ice, just not a country grinding to a complete halt because of it. Second, whether Mary Byrne will manage to survive through to the final of X-Factor (the reality singing contest in the UK). Snow and celebrity overtaking economy is a welcome relief; there is life beyond the IMF.
