St Patrick's new Ireland

Even though St Patrick's Day has not yet arrived, I have already received several cards and messages. Some came the old-fashioned way, delivered by the postman, but most were like my friend Colleen's, the virtual variety, and arrived with a "ping' in my inbox. Colleen's card, animated by leaping leprechauns, proffered a self-styled "auld Irish blessing". Colleen's not Irish, she's an Aussie of Irish descent, interested in and proud of her heritage. But her virtual Ireland doesn't exist any more. It's a new Ireland now - educated, multicultural, aware - Ursula Stephens
