I’ll admit I picked this book up because I liked the tagline, She borrowed a child. He stole her. Lucy Hull who is a children’s librarian runs away with Ian Drake when she finds him hiding out in the library one morning. She’s always enjoyed him when he visited the library, even if she did worry over his mother and the insistance that Ian only be allowed borrow books with the “breath of God” in them. And definitely not those ones with magic and satanism in them!
And then Lucy finds a note making her believe that Ian is being sent to anti-gay classes. She isn’t really kidnapping him, she is rescuing him.
In this country of the cute hoor, misleading the DÃ¡il or Seanad is considered little more than a minor stroke
An asylum seeker who came to Ireland in 2000, Mr Adebari mused that while he was now Portlaoise’s first citizen, he was not yet an Irish citizen.
“Are you telling us you’re not legal,” Mr Aird interrupted, at which the whole public gallery erupted in laughter.
Was browsing over on the Irish Independent’s site (reg or bugmenot req’d), and came across a letter on the topic of immigration. It was written agreeing with one in the paper the previous day. I hadn’t seen the first one, so took a peek. It’d make you wonder.
The British National Party have recently launched an Irish campaign to “keep Ireland Irish.” :( As if we don’t have enough of that sort of rubbish over here already. According to their website Ireland is now filling up with “Third World immigrants/asylum seekers” yes those are there terms, because obviously none of the non-Irish looking(??) people could possibly have jobs could they? Like nurses and doctors??? Or working in your local shop or take-away?
