When it comes to supporting charities the Irish people are probably second to none. A truly honourable trait. But when it comes to prioritising what is most important on this island, we have some serious readjustments to make.

When sporting events and american country singers become more important than the wellbeing of this country, and all of our fellow citizens, I have to ask why?
