This is a sobering report of reality on the ground. Assimilation of inward migrants could alter the persona of the nation. The "brain drain" is always a risk when upward ambition outpaces the local economy's ability to provide meaningful employment. Just wondering if today's Ireland win of rugby's Six Nations Title will turn the heads of any of the educated contemplating going elsewhere and prompt them to remain in their homeland?
You've heard of "March Madness" re basketball. Well, now it's mid-March madness. As if the Ireland win of the Six Nations title wasn't enough! Too bad the taoiseach can't have a trip to the U.S. without home folk weighing in. Thanks for the light touch in writing, though the topic is serious and worthy of thought.
