Maybe put together a list of successes that Varadkar has had since becoming a Taoiseach while having your brekkie.???

Strikes me that all the people who come out with this line are young people who have been fed the narrative that the past was intolerable by people with vested interests in the changes of recent decades, eg RTE broadcasters who are on five if not ten times the salary they would be on if things had remained the same. .

This narrative is unrecognisable to people who were actually around in those "bad old days" who invariably will believe that life was far better back then.

Tarry used by the BLack Gang road builders ,who have laid it in the hollows and laid it in the flat and if it doesn't last a thousand years they'll surely eat their hat.
Developed by a Scottish inventor McAdam, and made from a residue of Oil refining, mixed with aggregate.

I always liked this song. It represents an Ireland past. I dedicate it to all the posters here who wish to preserve what once was.
If you were that stuck in the past, you wouldn't be posting messages to anonymous strangers on political websites
The past is gone so get over it
It wasn't all that rosy in those days anyway
