Two young Polish looking guys spend the night sleeping rough.
Dublin Castle, once the center of British control.
The Celtic Tiger has started sneezing and the weather is getting chilly.
I am beginning to notice people living out on the streets,the Polish. Checz,Latvian etc are feeling the pinch. If you are in Dublin around lunchtime take a look down Bow street where several hundred homeless people are going for dinner every day. They came here with hope,no contacts,no English, no money and no chance.
I will not insult their pride by taking a photograph.
They are like the Irish who got lost in London and New York over the years.
At least communications are not as big a problem with mobile phones,e mails and text.
The old house sales have slowed down and the estate agents are not a smug when they drive past, from now on they will have to "sell" the houses,rather than just show them.
Falling prices means lower commissions.
I am resting today, tomorrow it will be hectic as the rugby final will bring out the punters. England V S.Africa.
I am fine now, so next week I will tell you a good story.
