Mother’s Day, Martin & Me

March 26, 2017 0 Comments

“If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and listen carefully. Stories about food show a strong connection. Wistful silences demonstrate unfinished business.

As the brilliant documentary “Older than the Ireland” so vividly illustrated, 100 years is not a long time. It does, however, highlight how action taken today can significantly impact the Ireland of 2116. I for one think we need to seriously adjust the trajectory. Heartened and inspired by the leadership evidenced in the stories shared at […]

Neo Ireland, What We Do

June 11, 2015 0 Comments

“Sowing the seeds of prosperity” is about preparing people to fully participate in the “new” economy. There may be few jobs in the traditional sense, but there is plenty of work. Up-skilling and re-skilling may be required, confidence building and support for that process cannot be underestimated. There are upwards of 20,000 tech jobs currently unfilled on […]

My relationship with the Irish language has evolved over the half dozen years I have been here. It’s doubtful I’ll learn to speak it, I’ve little facility with language, but what I’ve learned about it has certainly informed my understanding of the people of this island.

July 10, 2014 0 Comments

This week I’m off to Crossmaglen, “The Joys of Armagh” is the Tangible session on offer at the Cross Square Hotel. Billed as a leadership seminar, for me it’s a dose of positivity. “Can do” folk putting their heads together. So what is Tangible Ireland? Many things, but “your partner in a global economy” doesn’t […]
